Yes, but ony if your using the line outputs if you use the powered speaker outputs it takes the rear channels.

Re: Onkyo TX SR805 Review and Official Owners Thread

I hope I don't sound too negative...but if you're not going to use it for a couple months I'd take it back. Onkyo might release some new stuff in a couple months which will either push the price of the 805 down, or give the new model some nice tweaks and/or features the 805 lacks. Electronics depreciate faster than cars.

Re: Onkyo TX SR805 Review and Official Owners Thread

I'm a couple of months from having my family room done also. Just saw that Circuit City had the 805 posted for $630 shipped (silver only). Thought about getting one at that price. Is anyone saying that it is best to hold for some possibly better features at a reasonable price? Any opinions here?

Bang for buck in my opinion the 805 is on the top of the list. The 705 is also a good choice but you loose in several categories.
One being only THX select certification and two not having the top of the line BurrBrown DACs

Re: Onkyo TX SR805 Review and Official Owners Thread

I took zips advise and cancelled my order.He's right in a few months the 805 will surely be cheaper after seeing the sale prices on them lately,plus my concern is that if i plugged it in a few months from now and somethings wrong with it there not going to let me return it.Although i did buy a pioneer elite pro 1150hd from tweeter for $2249 on sale.The original cost was $4500 and the cheapest online price was about $3500 so i snagged that up for the family room even though i have to wait.

Re: Onkyo TX SR805 Review and Official Owners Thread

With electronics it's best to wait until the very last minute to buy. Prices drop every month or so and when it comes time for next years model release retailers get busy trying to unload last years stock.

Onkyo released their new receivers last May and announced them earlier. They were earlier than the rest which trickled in between June and September. It's possible that they may let most of their models ride it out another year. They may not though. It's all about beating out the competition so who knows what they have up their sleeve. Onkyo has already annouced the TX-SR576 and TX-SR506 so a TX-SR806 might be around the corner also. They've also made some agreements with Microsoft which could mean more network integration with "Plays for Sure" licensing.
