Style Name: New Receiver Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
My previous receivers all have been lower end models so I was chuffed to obtain a higher end receiver to review. When I brought this into the house the first thing I noticed was the weight. The Onkyo TX-NR828 is a very substantial receiver. The listed weight is 33 lbs and I was not able to fit this over the TV as with my previous ones.

I next did some research on the internet before writing this review. The NR828 is a new A/V receiver, it replaces the TX-NR818 from just a year or so back. Almost all the negative reviews I've found on the internet, including the ones here are ones which compare the NR828 to the NR818. Certain features which were heretofore available in the NR818 are no longer in the NR828 and replaced with some other features. The changes I believe come about because of product rearrangement and price adjustments on Onkyo's part.

For myself, coming from lower end receivers, the higher end NR828 literally had a ton more features. Basically, you get what you pay for and when you are at a higher price point you get more features.

Except for needing a more sturdy stand, installing the NR828 was not hard. All the ports and sockets are clearly labelled. I had bought some banana plugs for my speaker cables so installation was basically plugging in each cable from each component and speaker to the correct socket.

One thing that wowed me was the number of ports this thing had. You have 7 HDMI (assignable) inputs in the back and 1 in the front, RCA sockets galore in the back and 1 in the front and a USB port in the front. I'm glad it still has RCA sockets because I still have some old VCR movies.

Other features include blue tooth and built in Wi-Fi, internet radio and music streaming. There is Dolby, THX, Audyssey, etc.

Style Name: New Receiver Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
As luck would have it, my basis for comparison is the similarly priced Yamaha RX-A830 7.2-Channel Network AVENTAGE Home Theater Receiver, perhaps one of my favorite receivers built. For reference, I tested both receivers using the same speakers in the same room with the same audio sources.

Out of the box, the Onkyo is a heavy monster, weighing in nearly ten pounds higher than the Yamaha. While an old rule of thumb seemed to dictate that the heavier a receiver was, the better the components were, Yamaha seems to suggest that their hybrid power supply makes for a lighter receiver. Whether or not one's inherently better than the other, I couldn't really say. I do know this, though: the Yamaha puts out much less heat. With the Onkyo being considerably larger (as well as heavier), this made airflow a concern for me.

Port-for-port, jack-for-jack, the two are really close. The Onkyo has an extra coax audio input, but that's about the only difference. Both have a decent GUI that lets you do port renaming and matching, both have mobile apps to use on your phone or tablet... it's until you really start scratching that you see the differences. And to me, here's what the key ones are:

Network audio: Both have basically the same services. Actually getting to the services is much, MUCH more intuitive on the Onkyo, where the Yamaha receiver buries them and makes it hard to switch from one service to another.

Wireless audio: The Yamaha is Airplay compliant, which means that it takes virtually no effort to play music from your iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad, or Mac, as long as everything is connected to your home network.

Style Name: New Receiver
I am a former owner of a TX-NR818. I have received this newer model, TX-NR828, in replacement of my old unit which could not be fixed. When it worked, it worked great I have to say (you can check my review).
This did not turn out to be good thing because, based on specifications, the 828 model is an obvious downgrade of the 818 (in general it appears to be the case of the whole 2013 line of receivers when compared to their 2012 predecessors).
This is a legitimate marketing choice of Onkyo: reduce features, specifications and price at the same time, but I am not sure it will pay off for them. For the prospective buyer who was thinking to purchase the 818 and can no longer find it anywhere, I would overlook this 828 and stretch the budget for a 929 (when released).

I resisted the temptation of leaving it untouched inside the box and gave it a fair try. I am now on day 5.
Sadly, all I was forecasting turned out to be true. The sound quality does not really hold a candle to the TX-NR818 and I hope you will trust my words. Bedsides the Audyssey equalization, now downgraded 2 steps backwards from MultiEQ XT32 to MultiEQ (nearly entry level), I suspect that something has changed for the worse also in the amplifier section. The reduction in weight is likely because they adopted a digital power supply (like Harman Kardon did for the x700 line of receivers) and that may not be the culprit. I believe something has changed in the actual power delivered by this receiver.
