Bottom Line:   
The Onkyo is a good receiver with a clean and powerful amplifier for a mid size room. It also has many sound inputs for flexibility in configuring VCRs and DVD players. The power feature is good; two power plugs allows complete turn off of power to the whole system and it automatically turns its self off when no inputs are available. The surround sound effects have excellent adjustments that fine tune the sound for the room size and placement of the speakers. The sound test used to determine the power setting for each speaker is very handy. The receiver is tough and has survived my little toddlers. The only negative comments are output for the surround speakers are not strong enough to enjoy a full sound when listening to CDs. The remote control device must adjust the volume control for the external room speakers.

If I ever need to buy another reciever I am sticking with Onkyo, their receivers are their bread and butter unlike Sony, where they make everything from T.V.'s to computers. I would recommend Onkyo to my grandmother if she wasn't deaf.

Just received and used for a month , daily. Very pleased, driving 6 speakers and full power to all of them. Dolby system is superb and seems to offer every hook-up option I can think of.

Bottom Line:   
i got this practically for free: i paid about $200, when the price ought to have been appx.$600, which has made my smile to last for half a year now. the rds-receiver is great and if a station isn't broadcasting rds, you can manually name its frequency. dolby digital'd be a nice addition to the amplifier but there's almost nothing more to be added. the modell is about 3 years old, but beats a bunch of today's competators. the design is nice too, the unit in a way melts in my room. by the way, i've heard tx-sv545 won a test of amplifiers under $600 in the leading hifi-magazine here in finland in 1998 and in a similar test in uk too. go get one!

Just purchased one week ago-after hooking it up to 5.1 to my DVD using the multi channel input on the reciever,it really kicks compared to Pro-logic eventhough it also sounds great!This is my first Surround Sound Reciever and it really live up to expectations so far with it´s high output in all channels.It´s a great buy!
