Great starter AV receiver that allows 4K and HDR content through the HDMI ports

not enough HDMI ports for me but still burning!

There seems to be a lot less connections on this one than the last version of their RXV3xx series. What have they done away with?

Anything recommended speakers to go with this??

A pair of Wharfedale Diamond 9.1 are always a safe bet. I have a pair and they are excellent for the money; a well respected long standing model.

If you wanted a 5.1 set then you can have a look here for a decent list. My reccomendation would be to look for some Diamond 9.0s, 9.1s and possibly a 9.cc, or 10 centre speaker on ebay as they are really cheap second hand and hard to damage so should work well. SW150 is a decent subwoofer that can be picked up from £50-80 on ebay too.

This is just my reccomendation for some good value speakers, many others will know much more than I do about other brands available that may be better. X)

Hot. Massive step up in quality from the normal onkyo sales.

If you want new have a look through these recent deals.

It all depends on budget. I have mainly had bookshelf speakers but I am sure some others in this thread can recommend a decent pair of floor standing units for you that aren't listed above!

You'd be surprised how well they fill a room. Obviously, not as good as a 5.1 set-up, but good enough for most people. Worst case scenario, you feel you need a bit more oomph, then you just move them to surround and add in floor standers later.

If I were to get a new pair of floor standers though these would be my choice. These are ok, but they were £149 a couple of weeks back.

This any good? £50 cheaper than the q500

I've read that this receiver coupled with the monoprice surround sound speakers is a rocking setup. Beating systems of 10x the price in some reviews.

Here's the link to the monoprice speakers:

Yea, you won't be disappointed with them.

No DAB or DAB+
This must be a very old out of date model.

It came out in 2016.

Can the iPod touch be connected via the USB without loss in sound quality? I am curious to know what to expect in terms of music quality

Planning on replacing my aging Cambridge A1 Mk3 amp. Thanks

Might be better buying a sound bar rather than this as it is so under powered it is likely to disappoint.

Well it would be, who has ever heard of Onkyo?!!!

Do you not have google there? They are a cheap chinese manufacturer, but Richer Sounds increase the RRP, then regularly self them as a "bargain" on sale. Compare Onkyo and Sony side by side, you will not believe the difference.

I'd imagine delivery would be expensive from there

Yamaha audio equipments are top notch and always premium quality in my book.

You might need to find out if an iPod touch can be connected at all via USB. Only works with FAT16 & FAT32 devices & doesn't support encryption. Anyway the DAC in the iPod is probably equal or better to that in the amp so you're probably better connecting via a good quality analogue cable.

Looking at the back of the unit you need an active sub for this?
