With a total of five HDMI ports for Dolby TrueHD, DTS-HD Master Audio , 3D video, an Audio Return Channel, and an overlaid on-screen display, experiencing high-resolution sound and vision has never been easier.

You can also play a wide variety of audio formats off a USB memory device and select tracks using the system remote. A built-in Advanced Music Optimizer with volume equalization enhances the quality of your digital music, while gamers can select from four different DSP modes for even greater realism. Your new home theater receiver is very easy to set up and adjust, even during a program, with helpful menus never further than a button press away.

I upgraded my TV, Roku, and bought a blue-ray player and found my 14year-old Sony receiver not able to cope with newer audio codecs. That and it never sounded that good even with a newer powered sub(terrible bass distortion).

I had good memories of an Onkyo receiver from the 90s so decided to give this one (Onkyo HT RC430) a whirl. It's a new model, Thus the lack of reviews. (till now.)

I didn't do a lot of research. All I cared was that it would play dolby digital plus and whatever else the new components would throw at it (i.e. netflix 5.1 is dolby digital plus 5.1 that my old receiver would clam-up over). And I didn't want to spend much.

Hook it up. Turn it on, I was pleasantly surprised that the factory settings played nicely with my components. Subwoofer had clear resonant bass. Highs were less muddy. No problems with all the audio codecs I was missing. They all play well.

I have all my HDMI devices fed into the receiver; it does manage a "pass through" HDMI function where it doesn't have to be turned on, but it defaults to either a specific input or the last input that was used. Not very friendly for those with poorly trained households. I wound up using my 3way HDMI switch with auto sensing (wish the receiver had this) and routed everything through a single HDMI input on the receiver, and let the $12 switch sense what's on (why don't receivers do this?)3 Port HDMI Pigtail Switch with 55 cm HDMI Cable.

Oh, and the Amazon description of 1080i is meaningless. It will handle all HD including 1080p. It does have a good onscreen display capability (i.e. when adjusting volume on the receiver it shows a volume bar on the TV).

Just bought this to replace a 15 year old Sony system. We had no idea how bad the Sony was until we hooked this up and discovered that we could hear the dialog in shows again, and there were all kinds of things that we missed in the music we listened to. I spent the morning that this was to arrive marking the cable on the old receiver. Of course, when this one came there were preprinted stickers that were so much nicer than my masking tape job. Ah well. Hookup was easy, even though we had to use component hookup since we have not HDMI devices in our family room. With HDMI it would have been even easier. This receiver handles USB music devices and displays the available music on the tv screen - only if you are attached to HDMI. I guess this will push us toward a new LED tv which I'm sure Amazon would love to sell us. We can still select music on the front display of the receiver and found that it enhanced out MP3 files very nicely. Heard all kinds of new things in the music. All in all we are way beyond just pleased with this receiver. It was just what we needed and has all the hookups you need if you haven't replaced all of your older equipment yet. Highly recommended.

We bought this receiver as part of a general upgrade to the entertainment equipment in our sun room. It is not our primary location for watching tv or listening to music and we were on budget, so we were looking to get maximum value for minimum expenditure. This receiver replaces a 30+ year-old NAD receiver and is connected to a Samsung UN32EH4003 32-Inch 720p 60Hz LED HDTV (Black) and a Sony BDP-S590 3D Blu-ray Disc Player with Wi-Fi (Black). We have a 3.1 speaker set-up with a Energy CC-5 Center Channel Speaker (Black) along with a pair of Energy CB-5 Bookshelf Speakers (Pair,Black) for the front and a Polk Audio PSW111 Subwoofer (Single, Black).

Our main system uses an Onkyo TX-NR509 5.1 Channel Network A/V Receiver that is a couple of years old and has been working well for us so we were interested in a similar model if only slightly scaled down in features. The HT-RC430 checked off a number of important boxes for us that were upgrades to our old NAD that had good sound but didn't even include a remote let alone the possibility for 5.1 sound or HDMI connections.

I just bought this and I have to say that for the price, it's an awesome receiver. The only thing I wish it had, were banana clip terminals for the speaker connections. But for the price, I guess that's to be expected. Other then that, it does come with a lot of features and that was the deciding factor over other receivers in the same price range or even a little higher priced.

The front USB connector for an iPod was nice. I also liked the selector B for another set of front speakers, witch a lot of other receivers didn't come with. Overall, I'm happy.
