Bottom Line:   
I purchased this receiver refurbished from jr for 99 bucks and couldnt be happier plus that price included a year 2 extended warranty to go along with a 1 year warranty provided by Onkyo.The sound is absolutely incredidle and it puts you right the center of the movies perfectly.Live concerts are totally awesome in surround mode using this receiver and this thing can turn a nice a gathering into full blown party,2 channel stereo is really awesome and this thing can put out some really good power when if needed.I cant even cut the volume past 45 as it is very loud at this volume but crystal clear and can go up much louder.Im more happier with this Onkyo 65 watts per channel receiver than I was with my past Pioneer,JVC and Sony 100 watt per channel receivers.

Bottom Line:   
First impression: wow, nice! The sound is clear, even if slightly underpowered, with good bass output in stereo. The 5.1 is slightly weaker, but still fills up the room with decent accuracy (less bass). Did not use a sub - this might be the reason.

Problem with my unit: high-level controls froze up twice in 3 weeks (first time after 1 hour of use, second time after 3 weeks). The sympthom: inability to use any of the controls (either the remote, or the front buttons or volume). The low-level (amplif) would still work fine (sound coming out), but no control over it through the interface. Fix: unplug and re-plug power cord.

Bug (feature?): turning up the volume works fine, however. if a certain threshold is passed, turning down the volume results in abrupt drop in intensity (power). In stereo, the threshold is 64 (out of 70). For surround, threshold is 54. To regain full power scale, one should either turn back up the volume, or switch back and forth to a different DSP mode.

Due to the freeze, it went back to shop.

Bottom Line:   
I bought this based on price and a belief that Onkyo products represented quality. Unfortunately I was not happy with the sound or FM recetion. Though I live in a tricky area (behind a mountain from most of the local transmitters) this receiver pick up cleanly only two of the many staions I regularly listen to. I have an old ElCheapo all-in-one receiver that I bought at a garage sale for $15 that outperforms this unit for FM reception. I also have two lower end Denon receivers that are wonderful, and have no problems with FM reception (I do have a roof antenna that all my equipment, including the Onkyo, attach to.) Needless and sadly to say, I'm shipping this back. I will say that if price is the determining factor over FM, or you live in an area where reception is not a problem, this could be a good deal.

If you need a high quality 5.1 receiver look no further.This 65watt receiver with its high current amp blows all the others in its price range away.The Pioneer,JVC,Kenwood and Sony 100watt receivers in the same price range arent half as good as this receiver.(Well maybe there half as good but thats about it.)
