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 shopped extensively and don't think you can get more bang for your buck. Sound is excellent paired with the Boston Acoustics Soundware XS speaker package I purchased. I love the wireless function and easy connection to Pandora Radio. It takes a little time to learn the functions (and I'm still learning) but thats the case with anything electronic these days. I purchased the Square Trade 3 year warranty for $20 since there were some reviewers with HDMI problems, but everything is working fine so far.

Not a bad value for a $299 receiver. I have owned it for about 7 months now and have done a firmware update as well. The receiver is replacing an older Yamaha which sounded awesome but lacked WiFi and bluetooth. The sound is not as powerful as my old Yamaha or even an older Onkyo that I am using in another room but it makes sense that in order to squeeze in all these HDMI connections and features Onkyo had to cut some corners and unfortunately the audio front end is where the quality was sacrificed. Like everyone else I have had my share of HDMI issues. No matter how I configure the HDMI pass through feature, last source used or a particular input like my U-Verse, it works when it wants to. Most of the time I get no audio from my TV when watching U-Verse through HDMI pass through. Sometimes it starts working but more often not. I got so tired of it that I ended up connecting my TV directly through optical fiber. One thing to note is that this unit will get really hot. I ended up moving it out from the bottom shelf of my TV cabinet and putting it right out on top. Although it looks messy (with wires and all) sitting out in the open but I cannot afford the unit to burn. I have also connected an old PC fan to it via USB to keep it running cool. Do not put it over or under any component. Have at least 8" of room above it and 4 inches on the side to allow for air to cool the unit. If you can connect a fan like I did, then please do it before it's too late. Now the good ... Bluetooth works like a charm, WiFi is easy to configure and most of the features work without using much help. One thing that I wished that it did have was pre outs for audio, but you cannot have everything for under $300. Would I buy it again? probably not but for a budget unit it is not all that bad.
