The HT-RC560 receiver is a bargain and loaded with features only found in more expensive receivers. In my experience, pretty much everything worked. Unfortunately, not everything worked quite as well as I as I would have liked. But in the end, I it is a keeper.

Be aware that the HT-RC560 appears to be a relabeled Onkyo TX-NR626. Onkyo reps have made statements to that affect online (you can Google it). I took the time to review the manuals and specs of both Onkyos and I can say that the US version of the TX-NR626 appears to be identical to the HT-RC560. They even use the same firmware. That said, the TX-NR626 is only sold through retailers that charge a lot more ($500 as I write). So, the HT-RC560 is a real bargain.

I will compare this to a Yamaha RX-V375 I bought and returned prior to getting the Onkyo.

I’ll start with Negatives.

The Onkyo is BIG. It looks bigger in person than it does in pictures. So, be prepared. And unfortunately, the size is not put to good use. The front panel buttons look useable in pictures, but in person they blend together and the text is much too small and grey. If you want to use the front panel buttons then make sure you have a flashlight handy, really. In this respect, the Yamaha is better. The Yamaha buttons have different shapes and sizes making them easier to identify. Text is also bigger and easier to read.

The initial setup of the Onkyo is not bad. The set-up routine is very user friendly, but making adjustments to settings is complicated. There are a lot of menus and they are not intuitive.

First off, this is the same model as the Onkyo TX-NR626. I think the HT-RC560 is a model sold only in America, at least that's what I heard.
Solid 7.2 receiver with a few limitations.

Pros: Good price when on sale (299.99). Wireless networking. Good sound quality. Remote can control other devices. 4K upscaling & pass through. Two HDMI out. Bluetooth capability.

Cons: One line display. Doesn't show speaker setup on display. No EQ for speakers. Runs pretty warm at higher levels. Difficult setup for first connecting to network. Zone 2 for analog sources only, which does also include USB and NET.

Other Thoughts: For $300 this is a solid 7.2 receiver. Onkyo has, however, made some cutbacks in features over even lesser receivers in recent years. My Onkyo TX-NR509 has a 2 line display, shows a little picture of the current speaker configuration on the display. Both of those display features were removed for this model HT-RC560, which now only has a one line display.

I was disappointed that this receiver doesn't save your configuration for speaker levels for each input, which should be standard for most receivers IMO. I like to have my subwoofer level higher for movies than music, but once you set the speaker levels they remain the same for all inputs. No EQ for speakers, as well. Even the cheapest entry model Yamaha receiver includes EQ for all speakers.

The sound quality is about par with my 509, perhaps a little better, which I think is a strength of the Onkyo receivers. Just be careful, as the RC560 runs hot, as does most Onkyo receivers. I think this excessive heat is what kills the HDMI boards, so running a fan on it is a good idea. Running a speaker set w/o a subwoofer will increase the heat.

Overall, not a bad 7.

I don't leave many posts on products. This product impresses me daily. A lot of the issues I had were due to my own ignorance with this type of product. I now realize how little I know about home audio in comparison to other tech gadgets.

Problem 1:
I wasn't getting 5.1 after I had purchased a nice center speaker. I looked at the settings of my TV provider AT&T Uverse and needed to update the settings from Stereo to Surround Sound. Once I fixed that I realized that the sound was brilliant. I also needed to adjust my Xbox One settings to DTS Digital Surround. Netflix never sounded so good.

Problem 2:
I couldn't figure out this zone 2 thing and I had questions about it. Someone told me I might need to buy an external amp. It has a powered Zone2 but you need to connect an analog source to the receiver in order for it to play your zone 2.

If you buy this receiver or any receiver I'd assume, you need to expect to have to take time to learn about the product and how you can tweak it for your taste. In comparison to phones which I am an expert in, I'd say this is more like buying an Android Device, with its large number of various options instead of settling for an iPhone which I'd equate to a sound-bar/sub-woofer combo. Not trying to knock owners of sound bars, I have one of those too. I have to say though you do see a lot of national retailers selling sound bars. You don't really find receivers at the stores anymore unless you go to Best Buy.

This AMP has all of the features you could ever want, WiFi, Bluetooth, MHL, HDMI upscalling but unfortunately Onkyo has been having problems with their HDMI boards. I read about previous issues with older models (search for "Onkyo HDMI issues" TONS of complaints) but haven't seen complaints about this unit so assuming they fixed the issue and revised the board. WRONG, Purple / Pink image, No Signal at all, etc. and sometimes it works fine but this is within the first 3 days of installation and going HDMI direct to the TV does not produce any image issues at all. I would return it and just get another brand, unfortunately for me I waited 3 months to upgrade my amp because swapping a Reciever and rewiring everything is a real pain in the butt and we were planning on replacing our carpet so I figured I would wait till I only had to do it once!
Now I have to pay shipping both ways ($25 each way!) and be without my home theater for a few weeks while I wait on warranty repair shop to fix the thing.
