Onkyo TX-NR616 review

 

Browsing the prices for Onkyo's receivers can give you the familiar feeling of "too good to be true." Take the Onkyo TX-NR616. At its $410 street price it costs around $100 less than comparable models from other manufacturers, and it offers a...

The Onkyo TX-NR616 is feature-packed, with eight HDMI inputs, dual HDMI outputs, built-in networking, and extensive streaming audio support, including Pandora, Spotify, Rhapsody, and Internet radio. Wi-Fi functionality can be added with a tiny,...

Some users have complained about reliability problems. The eighth HDMI input cannot be accessed via direct button, only by navigating menus. And the TX-NR616 lacks built-in AirPlay.

The Onkyo TX-NR616 is a tremendous AV receiver value, with eight HDMI inputs and a very low street price, although Onkyo's step-down models may be an even better buy.

Superb sound, I am running it with a Bose 5.1 speaker system. A fantastic range of output sound settings to mess about with. I tend to use the THX settings. Brill internet radio. Having Spotify built-in is an absolute bonus. Cannot fault it. Switched...

Onkyo TX-NR616

 

Spotify controlled with excellent android app which makes searching much infinitly easier using qwerty keyboard. Great bass from front speakers but with good clarity. THX. Two HDMI outs means I can switch between projector and tv. Compact size means it...

Setup options could be more intuitive. Wifi dongle extra. Wifi takes a while to connect after switch on. Android app stays in portrait mode only. A bit pricy.

"Save your money - do not buy"

 

The Onkyo TX-NR616 would be better used as a $600 door stop. By dropping the HDMI signal every few seconds, it renders the TV broadcast completely unwatchable. I have seen many mentions of the same problem online, so I am assuming there is a...

Constantly drops HDMI signal

"Poor quality and even poorer customer service"

 

I purchased my Onkyo TXNR616 in late December 2012 and received it in in early January 2013. It arrived with the latest firmware updates and ran well until mid-August when it blew. The repair depot quickly replaced the parts (2 1/2 weeks) that had...

Great price; lots of features (probably best bang for your buck out there).

Slow HDMI connecting; and horendous reliablity and customer service.
