  • onkyo still has it !!!
    Verified BuyerReviewed by solulover59 - March 22, 2020

    i bought this to replace a 7.2 onkyo receiver, i have dolby atmos enabled speakers and needed the 9.2 to be able to use all of my speakers, this was the one i kept coming back to, 4k, dolby atmos/vision, thx certified, you need to use the calibration mike to be able to set up the different listening modes, i had one doubt but quickly found out that the I ( info ) button on the remote control is the same, if you push it during movie playback it will show you what type of listening mode you are in, i have always had onkyo receivers and will continue to do so, for sound, setup, and customer support they cant be beat.

  • ONKYO TX-NR797
    Verified BuyerReviewed by ONKYO - September 5, 2021

    I bought this receiver after purchasing the ONKYO TX-RZ840 for my Home Theater. This product resides in my home office. It is the central node in my "Office Home Theater". I use it with a 55' 4K tv, and a 4K Blu-Ray Player. It delivers power to the Polk Audio speakers and 2 Sub Woofers. It delivers excellent sound quality when looking at a movie or listening to music. It has all of the features of its bigger brother, so setting it up was easy. Just follow the prompts from the receiver and you're up and running in a few minutes. This receiver also controls the TV so I have fewer remotes to keep up with.

  • Onkyo th-nr 797
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Wickedwiley - February 14, 2021

    This is a good receiver with enough power to power my large living room. The sound is clear and well defined. This unit supports 4K vision as well as all the other platforms available today 2/6/2021. This unit also supports Atmos and IMAX. Not sure what imax is for, have not found anything with imax yet. There is so much more then I can describe in this short review. For full description go on line and take a look at the manual. One note is the best viewing platform is the newest Apple 4K tv. It upscales everything to 4K Vision and the receiver passes everything along to the tv without down grading it.
