This review is for is to inform consumers about a rather severe problem that this unit has an issue with
and how to fix it.

PRE: This unit when it was shipped by Onkyo was part of a line of units that were to feature
new and improved networking components for networked home theater management. However, the firmware
installed on the units was as Onkyo puts it- not the correct version.
In short the unit can be a brick out of the box and nothing works until you follow there new update procedure
as described online if the unit contains the original firmware from the factory.
I received one of these units.

To fix this you will have to re flash the firmware on the unit manually, as per Onkyo all "networked"
(internet based) rom flashing is no longer done for this unit.

So if you care not to return it and you want to fix it:

1. get a usb 2.0 flash key of about 4G or smaller and in windows format it to regular FAT32.
more "advanced" keys capable of teleportation are not recognized

2. Go to Onkyo's website and download the rom zip for the unit,

3. extract the entire zip to the key there will be several files
the format looks like
x7x8x8x8x.bla
x7x8x8x8x.bla
x7x8x8x8x.bla
<folder>

4. Take that and plug it into the unit, turn the unit by pushing the power button on the unit, THEN with your remote guide the unit to usb update, and update
5. go make a sandwich and wait for the unit to finish-
6.

Good stuff:
Nice receiver. Pretty easy to set up. Good to get 5.1 surround sound from hi-def movies. Nice selection of network audio (Pandora, Rhapsody, Spotify, and others I haven't heard of).
Bad stuff:
Although there are six HDMI inputs, two component inputs and four old-style video inputs on the back panel, the remote only allows selection from amongst five logical inputs: "BD/DVD", "CBL/SAT", "GAME", "PC" and "AUX". In setup mode you can assign a physical input to one of these logical inputs (e.g. I have a Roku plugged into HDMI5 that I assigned to "AUX"). But this means that if you actually plug in six HDMI devices (in fact more than five of any combination of device types), you will have to juggle in setup mode to reassign a couple of them before you can select them. Seems almost pointless having six sockets if it is such a pain to use all of them.
The receiver does not "up-convert" video inputs. So if have any component or regular video devices connected to the receiver, you will have to run that same type of cable from the receiver to the TV and switch inputs on the TV when switching inputs on the receiver .
Could not get logged into my "spotify" account.
Ugly user interface for network audio channels (much better to leave the TV screen off and operate using the iPhone "Onkyo Remote2" app that shows album cover art.

If you are new to this new style of receiver (which is very much oriented towards using your TV as the main input/output) it might take a while to get used to it. It assumes you use HDMI inputs, although if you plug in via conventional RCA inputs it will use those automatically. Otherwise it works great, really kicking out 5.1-channel audio in room-shaking volume with very low distortion. A bit disconcerting is the lack of a real equalization function, but the treble and bass adjustments are good enough for me and certainly simplify life. The volume for center and rear channels is independently adjustable, so you can tune your speakers to suit the listening space very easily.

The LED and on-screen readouts are very simple and I'd have to say crude, but informative enough. Apparently you need to step up to the 515 and higher to get a nicer on-screen display. You should also get banana plugs for the speaker wires because the binding posts are a real PITA. The wireless dongle works fine and had no trouble connecting to my network. The manual does not really discuss the use of the wireless network and there is some gueswork involved, but you actually get the use of the free VTech wifi radio function, plus other paid providers. Pretty cool to have 10,000 internet stations on hand.

I am very happy with this product, it does everthing they advertise it to do. Was easy to connect & program. Only draw back was when connecting the Wii, it does not convert & send the signal to the TV through the HDMI, had to run seperate video cable. Has great sound & remote works all components.

This is a very reasonably priced high capability receiver. Price is excellent for what you get. Ease of use is good once set up. Sound quality is fine. I did not encounter some of the firmware upgrade horror stories in other reviews. Worked fine out of the box and upgrades have installed without difficulty or incident. I use the basics with sound and video from DVD player via HDMI, ROKU via HDMI, TIVO (sound only) via optical, and computer (sound only) via RCA inputs. I also use the network capability to stream from Pandora and a local media server.

My biggest complaint by far is that the unit emits a burning plastic smell which seems toxic to me. I called Onkyo and they assured me it would pass and was normal and it has decreased but not stopped. I have to say this seems like manufacturing sloppiness to me - there must be some plastic coating on something that gets hot and is slowly burning off.

Other details to know: The unit is heavy, though not atypical. It takes a good 10 seconds for the sound to come on after power up. The setup menus are not easy to use and have a number of quirks: the on screen display comes out of HDMI but not component video. You have to press the Receiver button on the remote to make it talk to the receiver. Some setup menus are behind the Setup button and others behind the Home button. Once you get into the setup menus, the cursor buttons, Enter, and Return buttons work to navigate. You have to select which inputs by name go to which plugs. The unit also lacks an automatic sound speaker configuration feature so you have to set the number of feet from the center of the room to each speaker.

If it weren't for the burning smell, I'd give a 5 star rating. I've had the unit for a few months and it has worked great, but I have to give it a conditional recommendation because of the smell.
