I have the TX-RZ810. I think it's a fantastic modern receiver. Honestly, the only thing that disappoints me is the Zone 3 is RCA rather than speaker wire, but that's an easy enough fix with an adapter.

Anyways, you can control it with an app(for any zone), it's got Chromecast for audio(not video) built in, it has built in support for Pandora, Spotify, Airplay, DLNA, etc.

I've been happy with it and would buy it all over again if I had to

I bought an Onkyo a few years back through woot and just after the initial warranty the HDMI board went ... Onkyo knew of the issue but claimed my model was not part of their special coverage. Not sure if they corrected this problem - just saying. Hope these are better quality than the 7.2 I purchased.

No, it does not support HD Radio, but it does support multiple streaming platforms.

You do realize that zone3 is line level out and not speaker level. In other words, you cannot drive speakers from the zone3 RCA jacks. You must run them to something with an amplifier.

Do you have an estimate for when available and when we should be checking in on the app?

Also looking for NES Classic, been checking since 0100 hours. This is not really proving any benefit to clogging up my phone with another worthless app. I will uninstall whether I secure an NES or not. Thanks WOOT!!...NOT!

I own two Onkyo and both have suffered from HDMI issues. Its not the same brand my father touted.

so is the difference between the two just that the more expensive one is beefier?

also, what is the NES?

YMMV but I doubt I would buy anymore Onkyo receivers, my experience with them hasn't been the greatest. When I got mine I upgraded from an old Yamaha and I still miss the Yamaha.
The sound quality is fine on it, it's more a user experience with the Onkyo that drives me crazy. Plugged into my Samsung TV the HDCP handshake is a disaster. I'm so over trying to find every device's remote control to actually be able to watch a movie that I've scrapped the whole setup and bought a sound bar.

Next time I'll just get the NES instead.

There is much opinion about Onkyo and their HDMI boards. I can say that the SR806 series I had (bought in 2008), did burn up the HDMI board. After some back-and-forth with Onkyo (which oddly started here on Woot even thought I didn't buy it on Woot), they paid to repair it. It's still running strong today...at my ex's house. lol. I have a newer NR626 purchased here on Woot, and haven't had any problems with it. BTW, Denon has had HMDI board problems too - just sayin'.

I have an Onkyo receiver at home (like this one) and have had SERIOUS problems with it. The board went out and had to get repaired. The unit gets confused and doesn't recognized any of the HDMI connections until you unplug and re-plug in the receiver.

I have lived with those issues, but recently Onkyo decided it doesn't want to work with Spotify. Due to their bad relationship, Spotify no longer works on the receiver. 2 or 3 weeks later, Pandora stopped working.

Do yourself a favor and skip this buy.

You cannot say that this receiver supports SPOTIFY unless you can verify that this particular receiver works with SPOTIFY.

I really hope people who need one aren't put off by the comments here.

Onkyo had some pervasive HDMI board issues a few generations ago (exacerbated by the counterfeit-capacitor problems that hit the whole industry) and handled it poorly. Every time Onkyo receivers show up here a bunch of people who were burned by that jump in, and while their experiences were real, there is no evidence that recent/current Onkyo stuff has any unusual quality issues.

Note that this has a THREE year manufacturer warranty, which along with Denon leads the consumer electronics industry. Reliability theory says if it lasts three years it will last forever.

I am clueless about modern receivers! I have a wireless system in my home. The technician blew up my old one. Be that sit is, Is this compatible with a wireless TV, Ect.. I want to use this for my sound system. I also have a high quality turn table that I would like to use once again. Will this support such or dose it require a built in preamp? Please help me out! Thanks , I wonder if any one reads this or all are as clueless as myself?

I owned an Onkyo years ago and it died shortly after warranty. Never again. There are plenty other choices.

Onkyo might not be perfect but I couldn't find an AVR that checked off as many of the features I wanted as the Onkyo ones. So I got a TX-NR616 a while back. About 3y ago I had an HDMI board issue but they replaced it under warranty and it's been fine since. My only complaint is that it has more HDMI inputs than discreet buttons to switch to them. But it still beats a separate HDMI switchbox chained onto things.

I just purchased this, unbelievable great deal. I have a 15 year old Integra 898 which I love, but time to move into the modern switching of HDMI world, plus own a new 4K projector. If you are on the fence, don't hesitate. no other AV receiver has this level of I/O and features for this price. Oh I purchased the higher output one.

Hello. Onkyo apologizes for the inconveniences caused. In these cases were the HDMI cables over 15ft. from the receiver to the display? Long HDMI cables/cables of poor quality could cause signal dropouts. -DH

Hello! Let me see if I am understanding your situation. Are you trying to bring the sound from your Wi-Fi enabled Smart TV to the receiver? If so, you have options.

1) Utilize ARC (Audio Return Channel) via an HDMI cable between your ARC compatible television and your receiver.

2) Run an Optical Cable from your television to your receiver.

I bought a TX-NR626 2.5 years ago, inspired by a Daily Woot but unable to afford it at the time I got it via Amazon as a factory refurb, so effectively the same deal and same gear. And it was a fantastic A/V receiver UNTIL the HDMI switch blowed up about two years after purchase. The cost of getting Onkyo to repair it was out of the question, it would have exceeded purchase price. I was able to get a local guy to repair it for about $120, the repair lasted for about 3 months and it popped again. Now it works as an HDMI switch, but it's not passing audio.

To conclude. I love the receiver: excellent sound, and when it was new to me, it was an excellent A/V switch. But I would hesitate to buy another refurb. I'm planning on buying another Onkyo, but it will be new, on sale, at Best Buy, with an extended warranty. I've dug in to the reviews pretty deep, and it looks like pretty much every brand run a risk of having the HDMI switch pop: it is, after all, a computer. I protect my gear as best I can by having it all plugged in to a UPS, but there's still a chance of something going *POOF* and the magic smoke escaping. That's just the way it is. But I'm not going to risk this particular piece of A/V gear to another factory refurb.

Crutchfield has the 810 for $550 and the 610 for $400, free shipping, no tax, until tomorrow. Plus you get Crutchfield's excellent post-sale support. And you can return it if you're not happy (will cost you $10 for return shipping, though).

Bought a TZ-RZ610 last time they were offered. Had a difficult time setting speakers up (it kept shutting down during the process). When I finally succeeded with the speakers, I set up my HDMI devices...and had no picture. Tried to update firmware, hoping that it would solve the HDMI picture problem, and the unit bricked itself. I had to pay to ship it to the repair center, negating the cost savings of buying at Woot (not Woot or Onkyo's fault, but I bought this right as I was moving and a time delay meant I could not just return it). I never thought anything would make me miss my old confusing Denon, but Onkyo succeeded in that, at least. This thing really did not work out of the box, and I consequently do not believe that Onkyo has its control quality problems behind them. I know I would think twice/three times before ever buying another Onkyo, and I definitely would buy at some place with a more generous return window than here. Too frustrating.

Yes it has a Phono input. Did you look at the specs, it's in there, plus I own one.

I have Onkyo 805 I bought 10 years ago. Still going strong and has a great sound quality. Not a single issue as of yet for this model. I also bought an Onkyo networked receiver, forgot the model number, and this one suffered from the HDMI board failure issue. It was replaced under warranty and I did not have any issues after that.

When it came for a new receiver though, I only looked at a Denon and Yamaha. I bought the Yamaha A2070 for it's DSP and reliability. In terms of SQ vs the Yamaha, I prefer my old Onkyo 805 on pure SQ.

I suffered through an Onkyo with the HDMI board issues. Had it fixed under warranty once. The service center was far away and it took a while. Tech knew exactly what the issue was as soon as I said the O word. It blew again a year later. I learned to fix it myself and got 3 more years out of it until a power surge killed the board for good.

Good news is that I rolled the dice with another Onkyo about 4 years ago and this one is still running strong without a glitch. I'm over it.

Oh, and my old one is still doing great over a friend's house...minus video.

So the issues were real (as were the low quality cap issues that affected more than just Onkyo) but it does look like they've improved, at least from my experience.

Hello,

The TX-RZ610 or 810 does work with surround sound systems depending on how may channels you need. Also, they both have phono inputs for your turntable.
