I have been watching this AV receiver for a while now, it was £449 for a while, it went to £429 a couple of days ago but when I looked today it was down to £399 !!!

Well I bit on it and bought it to replace a 3 year old Sony AV receiver, this really is a sweet bit of kit

Here are some of the technical specs from the website...

DTS:X™* and Dolby Atmos® Support
Wireless Audio Playback with Google Cast™* and AirPlay
Bluetooth Audio / Wi-Fi® with Spotify and Tidal*
HDMI® 8 In / 2 Out Including 1 Front (HDCP 2.2 / HDR)
FireConnect™ Multi-room Audio* **
AccuEQ Calibration Featuring AccuReflex Technology

I hope I did this correctly, it's only the second deal I ever posted, even if it doesn't get hot I hope it helps at least 1 person

Be gentle please it's Christmas :)

EDIT: A further £10 off it - down to £389 now !!

Onkyo? Who? Give me Goodmans any day. :)

Clearly this isn't an area you know much about. They are widely considered one of the best quality per £ makes out there. The £200 9010 is a fantastic entry level amp.


what planet are you on? onkyo is not very known outside north korea

blah blah blah something about looking like a sofa....

All that aside, I believe they have gotten over their high temperatures and HDMI port issues. looks like plenty of bang for your buck so have some heat ;)

merry Christmas

Heat added because these receivers are really good at what they do. Not sure how many will get round to setting up speakers to take full advantage of atmos though. I'm quite mad and even I can't be bothered. Anyway, where's Loughboro? Do they know it's Onkyo time at all?

I have the Onkyo 606 from 4-5 years ago it must be, still works fine.

When I tried to put it inside a cabinet the thing overhearts because the top needs ventalation.

Have recievers got any better for this? I'd love one to be a bit more discreet.

No chance you can drill a series of holes above it? Unless it's glass of course...

I'll give you heat, but I, not sure why one would choose this over the same priced Denon X2300. That doesn't mean you're wrong to, each to their own.

Bought the 747 for the same price a couple of months back. Awesome receiver. This may be newer gen so a couple more bells, but not THX Select.

wasn't the 606 from like 10 years ago, 4 years ago would have been 616 ... my 605 I had from release gave up years ago.

mine has been shipped today, well collected by the courier and has entered the system

must say, I am really looking forward to trying this out, the Sony I had was great but a bit under powered for the premium speakers I am running

I had a full test of the Onkyo 656 in my local Richer Sounds in October and was really impressed, however at the time it was still £449, so with my savings and money received for Christmas I decided to go for it once the price drop kicked in

I have had Onkyo products before, speakers built into a Toshiba Regza TV which were perfectly fine and some basic 2.1 speakers a few years back

I will feedback once received and configured correctly (this may take a while haha)

Thanks for the comments and the heat that's been added

Merry Christmas everyone :)

I'd take a look at the yamaha rx-v581 for this price I tried denon and wasn't to my liking and the yamaha blows it out of the water

My Yamaha is in a cabinet, and the top clearance is about 2-3 centimeter, it works fine and has done for years..

Just a FYI

The HDMI issues were down to the DSP Chip on the HDMI board and is manufactured by Texas Instruments, and this same chip is also on Yamaha, Denon, Pioneer, Anthem etc etc.

The High temperatures are also massively over exaggerated, it's all still well within operating temps, and most of the issues people had were when they decided to block the top vents. Onkyo fit fans inside some models to counter owner stupidity

Onkyo put around 200 vents on the top of these units and people stick things on top.... or install it in a confined space.....go figure

Thankfully these fans won't kick in under normal usage

Would rather have a Yamaha even if it was £200 dearer for same features. I've had to have 2 onkyos fixed 4 times because of their hdmi board issues and it's doing it again now. Terrible quality.

Onkyo are the majority shareholder in pioneers home entertainment business, your basically getting the same brand.
