Review from Home Theater Magazine

Review from HomeTheaterMag.com: AudioControl Concert AVR-1

Home Theater Magazine ReviewsAs a product category that straddles the three-figure and four-figure ranges, A/V receivers face a dilemma. A consumer who would shrug at a $999 price tag is suddenly overcome with caution when the price goes up to, say, $1,099, the price of the Onkyo TX-NR807. Yet this receiver is reasonably powerful, and it’s loaded with the latest features.

Product Description

The TX-NR807 brings together the very latest 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 new 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. An intelligent customizable remote controller puts the finishing touch to what is another benchmark-setting all-round performer from Onkyo.

Hopefully Onkyo has fixed the problem in current models.

Fry's was going 'round-N-round' with Onkyo to honor the warranty repair, which BTW Onkyo claimed that I had no warranty as it was a pre-owned unit.

Normally I can't afford to spend this much money on something such as a receiver, and normally buy cheap Sony's or off brands.

I've had the Onkyo TX-NR807 for about a month now. It replaced a 10 year old 70W Yamaha Dolby Digital surround receiver. I listen mostly to Jazz vocals, some light pop, and the occasional action movie. My priority is two channel (stereo) music, secondary is surround for movies. Other set-up details: Infinity main and center speakers(see below), small Paradigm surround speakers, Rotel CD running analog outs, Denon DVD, Windows Media Player on PC as music server. Overall satisfaction is high.

Before buying, this unit was demo'd in a showroom against a comparable Denon. The sound was similar on Def Tech floor stand speakers and both performed well. The Denon had a slightly warmer sound, which many prefer. The Onkyo had slightly better clarity, albeit a bit on the brighter side. The issue with a brighter sound is that it can be fatiguing for longer listening periods. This was a problem I was having with my current setup. Tough choice, but I decided to try the Onkyo as clarity is important to me. I like to hear the subtle parts of the music. The Onkyo, after discounts, was also about $500 less.

At home with the Onkyo, immediately I could pick up more details in the music and noticed better mid-range and bass. Not unexpected given I was going from 70W in the old receiver to 135W.

However, after listening for a while, I realized the better sound coming from the Onkyo was now actually revealing limitations of the speakers that were less evident with the slightly muddier sound of the old Yamaha. The vocals were a bit tinny and I was still dealing with the issue of the sound being too bright, although this aspect was a bit improved from the Yamaha. At this point I also looked around the room and realized it may be partially to blame for the brightness.

The idea is to dl the unwashed facts.

I am not an audiophile. I can and do build my own computers as well as just about anything with wheels and this is the 4th AVR I have owned.

This machine replaces a dead 6 year old Onkyo. It is a drop in into my 6.1 living room setup although it did not just "drop in".

The good:
Connectivity, the global kind- . The packaged internet features offer a vast improvement over the AM/FM airwaves, both in sound quality and shedding the mindnumbing drivel. I have not tried to add alternate sites to the list yet. The machine has recognized my home network and works with my stored musical content.
Connectivity, the input/output kind- Despite omissions to legacy analog stuff, there are ample connections. The amount of HDMI connections alone is atypical of <1000$ machines.
Power- I expect to add an amp and speakers to this setup for a 9.1 height system in the future. The added amp is to get dedicated outputs for true 9.1 which is not possible with the 807. It is a 7.1 AVR with a pile of extra connections to share the 7.1 output in different configurations. DO NOT THINK OF THE 807 AS ANY MORE THAN A 7.1 RECEIVER (with options)!
That said, the power is exceptional. It becomes uncomfotable due to volume but my ears do not detect any distortion at any level. Incidentally there is a maximum volume setting that is factory preset to allow the user to modify the range. I haven't played with the setting and probably won't. No need to put my ears or my equipment through that. This box is not your fathers receiver. It is a beast.
Heat. I am pleased and surprised that this box puts out less heat than it's predecessor.

Upgraded from a twelve-year-old Yamaha with lots of oomph but little in the way of current sound processing and of course no HDMI. Did a massive amount of research in advance, but in the end decided that the NR807 gave me everything I need for now and well into the future. One of the fullest and most immersive soundstages I've ever heard, a comparatively intuitive interface, auto firmware updates and PC audio streaming via its Ethernet port, more setup and configuration options than I knew existed, and a full half-dozen (!) HDMI inputs. And plenty of power sitting in reserve for those moments in a movie that are crafted to make you jump out of your chair. Never boomy or tinny or lacking, the unit simply sounds "fluid."

Yes, it has its bells and whistles, but this is by no means a "bells and whistles" receiver.

I bought this AV receiver and had some problems with speaker output. I finally ended up resetting to factory defaults via reccomendation of Onkyo. When I did that, I ended up with a TX-NR801. All of the functions of the 807 were gone. auto equalization, "NET", and remote setup were all gone. I now have to send the reciever back to have it repaired, meanwhile my entire system is down. Onkyo couldn't provide any help without sending it back. I have to believe that I'm not the only person to reset to factory defaults. This is not a trivial problem! I hope that it's not an indication of other system wide engineering problems with this reciever.

The features I found most beneficial/annoying given my perceived needs and use for this receiver:

(+) Pros
- 135W per channel (on paper)
- under $700 (Amazon Warehouse Deals)
- network capabilities
- firmware update via ethernet
- THX Select 2 certified
- Burr Brown DAC
- Audyssey DSX / PLIIz processing (future proof)
- Audyssey setup is a breeze
- nice GUI
- macro functions on remote

(-) Cons
- sluggish network connection and lousy interface makes feature more of a novelty (knocks down the value of this unit a notch)
- runs hotter than other brands
- video processing not impressive
- "clicking" noise when changing audio signals/inputs
- Audyssey DSX / PLIIz processing more than I will ever need
- firmware upgrading not as smooth

I purchased this courtesy of Amazon Warehouse Deals. What a bargain! The unit arrived in mint condition. You could tell that it had been opened and pulled out, but the unit was in perfect condition and all of the documentation/accessories were in brand new condition. Definitely worth the savings over a new unit.

I was actually considering the SR707 or Pioneer Elite 21/23TXH but at the price I got the NR807, I thought it was worth stepping up. The Network capabilities and extra power (135W) I felt were worth the extra cost.

Not being a total newbie to AV electronics, I got all my connections done pretty quickly and the great looking GUI makes set up a breeze. The Audyssey setup was great. I tweaked the subwoofer setting for my personal taste, but that was it.

** HEAT ** Newer Onkyo's have been notorious for the amount of heat they generate. Honestly, the heat coming from my unit was very minimal since I put about 1.
