Onkyo TX-NR807 review

 

The TX-NR807 is a feature-packed AVR sure to find a devoted following

Full-on gung-ho sound with massive bass ; DSX/DPLIIz ; SD upscaling

The bass is a little too massive ; Slightly flimsy build ; No USB

One of the best receivers for the money, the TX-NR807 makes amplifiers costing a lot more wince with the sheer power on offer here

Onkyo TX-NR807 AV Receiver

 

Is the TX-NR807 a Christmas number one for Onkyo?

On this evidence, it'll be criminal if Onkyo doesn't get another Christmas number one. Like the TX-SR607 before it, the NR807 delivers phenomenal sound quality with poise and power in spades, making for an unforgettable movie-viewing experience. Yes,...

Onkyo TX-NR807 review

 

The Onkyo TX-NR807 is a good amp, that with greater subtlety could be a great amp

Stamps immense weight and authority on movie soundtracks ; very good steering of surround effects

Can be unruly and uncompromising ; lacks the subtlety and low-level dynamics of class-leaders

A powerful amp that takes no prisoners in the sound department. A good amp, that with greater subtlety could be a great amp

Onkyo TX-NR807 AV receiver

 

New HD audio formats on a budget

Great sound, DSX and DPLIIz height and width surround channels, 1080p video upscaling

Bass can be a bit full-on, no front-mounted HDMI, no USB input

The remote control is a good one - intuitively laid out and labelled, and easy to find your way around. The top section of buttons lights up in the dark too, which is nice, though we're not quite sure why this couldn't be extended to the number buttons

Setup was hassle free. I plugged in the microphone and ran the Audyssey MultEQ auto-setup routine. It went without a hitch, accurately identifying my speaker setup with main five speakers augmented by two smaller height speakers. I took three listening...

Onkyo TX-NR807

 

Excellent sound quality, with good imagery balance and powerfull bass, Dolby PLIIz and DTS HD Master Audio as standard, 6 HDMI inputs (assignable) ability to upconvert video to 1080p via Hdmi output, NET radio, (updateable via PC), can also stream...

The NET set up can be a tad tricky, although in my case it was to do with the router settings and by disabling the Digital TV in the settings this overcame the problem. Your neighbours might not like the Reference level, as this receiver pack's a punch...

The little engine that could

 

It may be a moot point by now for this model however, I have enjoyed my Onkyo 807 for around 5 yrs now! After 3 yrs, the HDMI board went south. Onkyo gave me an out of warranty fix, I was out of pocket only the cost of shipping one way. It's been a...

Pre-outs, Rated at 135w per 2ch, Audyssey, multiple listening modes, Ethernet port, plenty of analogue and HDMI connectivity, 7.2 availability, even more features

Calling them is a 45 minute wait over the phone and apparently they do not know that much. It cost me $60 to ship it half way across America and at least this second time they are flipping the bill. I asked for a replacement and they told me only after...

Great picture and great sound when it is working

Lasted one year before problems showed up. I sent it back for warranty and 3 months later it reverted back to no sound again. I am shipping it back for the second time. This thing has caused me 6 months of pain and it is still ongoing

Product Specifications

The TX-NR807 brings together the mid-range home-theater functionality and adds one major upgrade: networking capability. An Ethernet port on the TX-NR807 allows it to receive and output audio files playing in real-time on your PC. Alternatively, you can bypass your PC and enjoy a direct connection to streaming Internet radio stations such as Pandora and Rhapsody. Naturally, the TXNR807 also handles all of your high-definition audio and video sources - courtesy of six HDMI 1.3a inputs - and upscales any video input to 1080p via Faroudja DCDi Cinema. This powerful THX Select2 Plus certified receiver also comes with Audyssey DSX and Dolby Pro Logic IIz, two surround-sound formats that expand the spatial dimensionality of games and movies. Meanwhile, Audyssey room-correction and equalization technologies help ensure a convincing and detailed audio performance, regardless of the volume level or the shape of your room.
