    What about the Onkyo TX-NR676E 7.2 Channel Receiver (Black) at $587.40? ($978 at HN and $1099 St Bing Lee)

    • Onkyo has at least twice as many connections at the back for cable spaghetti nightmare

        Wait .. so if you need and use the ports that's a bad thing, vs getting something with fewer ports and not have enough. Or having room to grow.. I mean it is only as messy as you need it to be right?

          It could be a bad thing for someone who is a neat freak or technophobe, I agree with you it's good to have more ports than immediately necessary.

          My comment was more in response to the 'What about…" by felto82 wanting an opinion… maybe even a comparison.. not sure what that user wants…maybe just felt compelled to join the conversation and wanted an ice-breaker… so I compared the I/O board and gave my immediate thoughts. Just commentary, no emoticons.

          @THICKnSLOW: I was just putting the Onkyo out there as another option for people.

          Feeling "compelled to join the conversation and wanted an ice-breaker"? Riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight…

        • @felto82: Anytime someone uses 'What about..' the impression I get is you wanna join the conversation, but don't know how to.

          You could have said 'Good first post je, welcome to the site. I think the Onkyo deal is also good over here…" but you didn't.

        • @THICKnSLOW: 🤣hilarious! Yep… That's it! It's my opening line for all my conversation starters! Any chance you could advise me of any other ice-breaking lines I, or any other ozbargain users, could use in the future, both on OzB and in reality?

          Could of… But unfortunately my thought pattern must have resembled your username at the time of posting😉

      Would also like to know..

      I did a quick bit of research comparing this Pioneer with a lower model Onkyo (656), and the consensus is that they're more or less the same amp with a few minor differences in inputs. Comparison between the Onkyo 656 and 676 seems that there's not a whole lot of improvement between the two.

      The onkyo 676E seems to retail for a bit more than the retail price of the pioneer vsx932.

      Onkyo has a fair few extra inputs on the back, (7 hdmi vs 4 on the pioneer, an extra optical etc but would be redundant for most people) theres also a second hdmi out on the onkyo.

      Pioneer has 1080p > 4K upscaling, whilst the Onkyo doesn't seem to although pretty much all TVs will handle upscaling . Also has digital radio.

      I'd say sound quality wise, they're going to be the same. Just a few minor differences in regards to features. Can't really go wrong with either at this price - but would be

  • Which speakers are suitable?

    • +1

      Any speakers for the 7. You'll most likely need to import 2 Atmos speakers though. I imported these from Amazon.

    Heads up this has a bug in the Chromecast functionality and Pioneer and their outsourced support are useless

    I have the Pioneer VSX930 a few years old, never had any real issues. But not once since i have had it have they updated firmware, which speaks of poor ongoing support.

    Overall a decent receiver, put probably wouldn't get a pioneer next time round.

  • I’ve loved my old tx-sr 606 Onkyo. Even with the dreaded HDMI fault this series has. Mines been 99% perfect, had to change a crappy cheap hdmi cable once and worked fine since.

    I’m trying to convince myself that I need a newie.

    Though the pioneer does seem ok too. Shrugs. Pepsi and Coke guys. Pepsi and Coke.

      Stocks are low for this if you haven't checked, better make a decision soon before sold out.

      No I don't work for JB Hifi but my mate used to ;)

  • Does anyone know if this supports multiple zone/Zone 2 audio?
