Onkyo who? Go for a Sony (you did ask for it)

Just to be clear, the features and 150wpc @ 7.2 is what you are paying for here for a real cinema audio setup.

The 7.2 refers to the speakers it will drive, not the HDMI sockets.

7 speakers + 2 sub-woofers.

Look at the front

I can't see under the flap - if that is where the sockets are.

I'm not sure which picture is correct but the rear picture on this thread is different from the one on Richer website. The RS website shows more HDMI connections on the back. The description under specification says 7 inputs and 2 outputs, 1 of the 7 inputs is on the front. :|
#16
Have one of these and it's a beast running my 5.1 setup with the fronts bi-amped, I paid £950 for it at the time and think it's a steal at this price. It does have 2 hdmi outputs which is one of the reasons I bought it so I could connect it to my display with two cables so I could set one input on the display up for a 3D blu-ray player and a DVD recorder and the other for games consoles and pc, if I only had one output I would either have to compromise on my settings to accommodate both movie viewing and playing games or adjust the settings on the display everytime I switched from watching a movie to playing a game which would be a major pain with the amount of different adjustments on my display.

Yes - different picture on here to that on RS site.

2 outputs on back on RS pic.
#18
The picture here shows a Sirius connection. Since Sirius is the satellite delivered radio system in the US then it's probably a picture of the wrong version.
#19
I purchased the Onklyo 1007 earlier this year after consulting with the local Onkyo expert ;-)

This is almost as good. Trust me, you'd not be disappointed with this.

Remember and get the 5 year warranty for £60.

If you don't use it you can get your money back (within a certain window)

These big boys run HOT, so recommended.

i think people are starting to ignore the joke realising they are getting noware complaining about it, it might actually slowly die out now haha
#25
how is this not hotter?!

anyone care to reccomend good front and centres to pair up? i was looking at b&w's but from what i've read they dont seem to be a good match.
#26
If I had the money I would be pulling my hair out over the new 609 or 808 at this price...
#27
Do the latest Onkyo's support HDMI operation when the unit is off, like the Yamaha's do?
#28
You get 3 year cover as standard with Onkyo
Great deal for a great amp

Not to sound stupid, but whats this sony/onkyo thing about???

This is a great amp and a great price. I got an ex display one £599 2 weeks ago which after 8 days literally went up in flames. Seriously I had to blow it out like candles on a birthday cake. I now have a brand new replacement and believe me not only does it have every feature and more for this price bracket it sounds superb for both music and movies. I'm now in that stage of re-listening to my whole music collection. The front USB can take an ipod and let you control it via the remote with display on the TV screen and amp. But even better it can also play wav & flac files direct from the USB. You can connect a massive drive e.g 1tb and load it full of flac files up to 96Hz for stunning quality sound. You can probably tell I love this amp. Not many of these left now as it's an outgoing model, but I think it's the best time to buy as the new models are not offering anything radicaly different. This one is fully 3D ready so future proof (at least for a while).

Yes - this model allows sound and picture to go to the TV while the amp is in standby.

Onkyo's used to be very brash but last year's range (this 808 included) had a much improved sound. I have all B&W's with the front left/right being DM604 S3's and this amp makes them sing like nothing I've had before. The high end can get a little harsh at times but depends on the recording.

I bought this a couple of weeks ago with the Q Acoustics 2000 speakers. Have to agree with previous posts about sound quality, have my Xbox 360, Ps3 Tv and Dvd player going through it. Everything sounds amazing. Only thing was I didn't like at the time was sorting all the cables at the back, was a nightmare. Mainly because I have arthritis in my knees. lol Was definitely worth it though, given all my Blu-rays and Dvd's a new lease of life.

Cheers, i'm looking at the 685 HT kit but swapping out the 683 rears for something more discreet and keeping the 683s to pair up with an all-in-one hifi for the bedroom, probably the little denon jobby...
#40
Phew my local Richer Sounds hasn't got one in other wise I might have upgraded my Onkyo 607 to this and been £600 lighter! That was a close one.

I wish I had an amp that did all this tho ;-(
