Looks nice.

I've had good luck with Onkyo products with my customers. They like the features and sound, and for most of them, the gear is hidden (or at least behind them), so they don't mind the "million button" look on the console.

I am amazed how many similaraties in features there are between the integra and upper level onkyo stuff, yet the integra unit do have a much cleaner look, and not a million buttons like you said.

The onkyo has the cleaner look as they have a panel to hide all the buttons.

Integra 32 Buttons plus 1 knob



Onkyo 13 Buttons plus 1 Knob
Now when you flip the panel open you have 26 additional buttons

That's a lot cleaner than many of the older Onkyo's I'm used to seeing. Very nice!

I have not seen any power ratings thus far... other than 220 or 240 watts at 6 ohms. I assume it is about 140 watts per channel into 8 ohms.

Re: Onkyo TX-NR5007 9.2-Channel A/V Surround Home Network Receiver


Hello,
I have been overwhelmingly pleased with my TX-SR875 which is used as a prepro. I do like the added features of the 5007 and am contemplating upgrading. The ability to upgrade firmware over ethernet is huge. Especially considering earlier versions of the 875/905/9.8 all needed revisions to the Reon chip and Audyssey to enable the Audyssey Pro features.

Since Onkyo launched the 05 Series, I really think they have turned a corner. I initially purchased a TX-SR-805, but wanted the Reon processing and got the 875.

However, for the price, the TX-SR805 is one of the greatest value AVR's ever. Aside from subpar video processing, the 805 was ground breakng in its price range. Shame that the 806 no longer shared the same amp section as the 876/906. I was shocked that the 806 was still THX Ultra2 rated. Makes sense that the 807 is THX Select.

I also prefer the industrial design of the Onkyo's over the Integra. I like the hidden door to conceal buttons much better. I did like that the initial 05 Series were manufactured in Japan as opposed to Malaysia. Shame that all Onkyo/ Integra Stateside are now manufactured in Malaysia.

While I like Denon, I think their gear is way overpriced. To get an AVR comparable to the 5007, you would have to spend multiples of the price of the 5007.
Cheers,
JJ
