No HD audio but at this price you would never expect it - that really is a fantastic buy. Hot Hot Hot :)
#2
I've just called around, and most places just have "open box" items left. Still a good bargain even though someone else has already had their mits on it.
#3
I've got this receiver, it won't process high-def codecs as it only supports HDMI pass through, it won't pick up HDMI audio, still a steal at that price.

I picked up a open box Onyko 507 a couple of weeks ago for £179. It was returned because the customer wanted to upgrade to something better within RS' 14 day cooling off period. It was absolutely new, everything was still wrapped - I expect this to be the same case for most of the open box stock.

No need to worry about the lack onboard HD decoding if your equipment decodes it anyway (i.e. PS3). If you need HDMI audio or onboard HD, check the link, there's a few more receiver bargains.

hi, do you have any links for any amps that do hd sound?

Not sure if this is right. Would only be the case if the receiver could accept LPCM over HDMI, which i believe the 307 does not (the 507 does).

Could be wrong mind. Still a good deal for a top brand HDMI receiver.

An open box 507 for £179? I only paid £179.99 for a brand new one a couple of weeks ago.
Also I assume you mean decoding? :thumbsup:

Yeah, I missed the Amazon deal (which was reduced a lot). I'm still new to AV and didn't even realise that Amazon's price was so good even though I noticed it the night before someone on HUKD posted it. RS was the next best, especially with 5 years warranty for £17! Oh well, although open-boxed it was literally new with everything still wrapped. Well done?
#10
damn, i wish i bought the 507 at £179.99
#11
I bought the 307 from Richer Sounds 2 weeks ago, ex display and cost me £149. It had some marks on it and didnt look brand new but I thought a good deal.

Just an observation but how come these have to be so huge? I've looked through the vents in the top and its mostly empty inside anwyay!
#12
I'm new to all that audio stuff but can anyone advice me on some cheap speakers 100-200quid to work with it? or do i have to spend a lot more to get some decent sound from it?

Lol, girlfriends father has those (along with an Onkyo AV thingy, one with all the bells and whistles!) and they are really powerful for such small speakers!

you could say the same about dvd players and br players.....
several reasons - probably keeping to as near standard hifi size width wise anyway, marketing as the belief that people will pay more for something big, ventilation as they get hot, connections at the back otherwise theyd be crowded
#17
yeah, your right, is it worth getting a 1.4 amp?

Wondered that myself, My TX-SR605 seems to be bigger than it needs to be - cooling maybe? I'd love to be able to find a decent half sized Receiver for another room, any ideas anyone?

I bought a set of Yamahas from Richer Sounds £149.99, sounds great.

Yeah alot of the room is for cooling, these generate a fair bit of heat.

You need a large enough cross-sectional area to fit all the connectors on the back. Looking at a pic of the back of the TX-SR605 it looks pretty full to me. It may look like stuff could be moved around but bear in mind it all has to line up to the proper place inside.

They look ugly, and I'd question the quality of them personally.
I'd opt for these within that price range:
http://www.hotukdeals.com/item/679927/wharfedale-9-0-speakers-pair-cherry

However, I personally wouldn't buy an AV Receiver and only setup 2.0, as otherwise you may as well just buy a amplifier and those speakers really.
Thus I'd purchase a full 5.1 system.

I got the Harman Kardon 5.1 speakers via richer sounds & the 507 - Woooow sounds gorgeous! The sub is a monster too!! Well worth the money (£200)

A full 5.1 set of speakers of even basic quality will cost far more than £50, whereas those Wharfedales will do an excellent job for stereo for the time being and can serve as decent rears later.

Buying an AV receiver and a pair of cheapish speakers can tide you over until you can afford decent fronts, a centre and a sub.

I agree, just was saying that if you are going to keep it as a 2.0 even 2.1 I think it is a bit of a waste.

True, I must say there isn't a lot of unused back panel on it!
#28
i just bought an amp onkyo 607 i think? full /hd and i didnt buy the standard 5.1 set up package. i bought a full set of Wharfdale diamond 9 speakers...4 bookshelf and the center speaker. i honestly cant fault them, brilliant with no real need for a sub but the option is always there to add to.
#29
will this function as a HDMI Switch too? i have 3 items, but only 1 HDMI port on the tv so can i use the to switch between them?
#30
sorry, just read it... it can.
#31
I didn't touch the 307 after reading some reviews of it - picked up a Sony AV from RS - think its a 800/880 model?(someone feel free to check!) around £249 - excellent reviews - paired it with the Jamo speaker set they have for around £249 as well - that picked up a load of awards for best budget speakers under £250-300 mark and must say the sounds is mint from them - Sony amp comes with a mic as well to auto setup the surround, has full HD audio etc... more expensive option but they way I saw it is I won't be upgrading it for a long time so may as well shell out a few more quids for a much better setup. Just google the reviews imo.

Hi guys,

This post just messed up my choice.

ONKYO TXSR307 (£120)

ONKYO TXSR308 (£230)
ONKYO TXSR577 (£230)

or go a step further and go to
ONKYO TXSR508 (£299)
ONKYO TXSR577 (£299)
ONKYO TXSR607 (£299)
?

Any help would be very appreciated.
#33
Buy the Sony.
#34
Picked one of these up at the weekend - yes, it was an open box item, but the unit and accessories were all there in their sealed bags!

Only tested 2ch, using the Q1010 I got from RS a few months back and tbh, it sounded awesome. I streamed Alicia Key's Empire State of Mind from PC to PS3 to the Onkyo, 2ch bitstream via optical cable and the reproduction absolutely sparkled! Clear, sharp and well.... wow!

For those who are stuck with trying to decided whether to go for the TrueHD / DTS HD / HDMI 1.4 etc, I was on of those - thinking back, with something as good as this jumping up at you at this price, I'd go for this. Yes, TrueHD / DTS HD might be better - but, if you're stepping up to your first separates 5.1, a basic quality amp like this one will sound a lot better than any midi / all-in-one dvd combo - you'd be immediately pleased and saved yourself £100 (£220 for for TX-SR308 etc). You can always ebay this and step up at a later date.

If you're spending the £££ to be an early adopter of 3D, you'd be spending decent money for on a amp with HDMI 1.4, so this thread and certainly this amp won't be for you.

I'm considering buying this. I have an old Philips home cinema 5.1 with tall boys and sub, but not happy with the sound quality (noise and air sound).
Planning to buy this, and attach all the home cinema speakers to the receiver. BUT, just reading through the AV instruction manual, realised that the subwoofer needs to be powered! Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't this stupid to get a second amp just to power the subwoofer connecting to the AV?!!

This will be my first venture to AV receiver world, be gentle please ;)
