Missed this one yesterday! Had to jump on it now! With a 1yr warranty, why not? :slight_smile:
I’ve got an old Onkyo now and it still sounds amazing but has no HDMI. This thing, with upconverting is gonna be Sa-Weet!

Just a FYI. The third picture on the page that shows “THX S2 Cinema” mode is not of this receiver, but is a picture of the TX-NR727 receiver which is a THX Select Certified receiver! So no, the TX-NR626 is not a THX Select certified receiver.

Pictures are of TX-NR727, but the details show both TX-NR626 & NR727. Which one is for sale??

All of the photos are of the TX-NR727.

I just bought the 727 from Woot the week before last for $479, so I certainly hope this is the 626…

My bad. Just noticed that as well! Not sure which model they are selling here since the text title says 626 in it.

I want to buy this but unbelievably after weeks and weeks of emails, promises to forward my issue to customer support by staff and getting a reply from customer service meant for another person, I am still being charged tax for my FPO address. How absurd is it that WOOT can’t fix this issue? The fix so far…hold my tax for weeks and then refund it so I will I will be charged $25 in tax only to get it back in a few weeks after I have paid off my credit card, it is more trouble than it is worth. WOOT, for the love of all that is customer service, fix the tax issue with my account.

[MOD: Sorry for the problems. We have identified the issue and are working to resolve it. Until then, you can email CS for help after a purchase.]

Let’s watch a brief overview


What!! This is an outrage! I demand that Woot send me a 727! LOL

Thanks to those of you who spotted the difference.

We’ve gone ahead and edited the photos for today’s offer: NR626
Today’s offer is NOT for the NR727

We apologize for the confusion.

This is a good price for a 626. I just bought a 717 for a couple hundred more just two months ago. I like Onkyos, good entry level HiFi systems.

We’ve just got one of these (yes, the 626) at home, and it’s a damn fine device.

And, likely a minor point, but one that I’m especially fond making about Onkyo devices: the remotes DONT SUCK. Just about every other receiver manufacturer - Pioneer, Yamaha, Denon - the remote controls are a UI and industrial design DISASTER.

I’ve been thinking about upgrading my receiver for a while, and this seems like a great price for a solid receiver (hoping/assuming Onkyo corrected those HDMI board issues).
One thing that keeps me on the fence about this seems to be incompatibility with Mac devices? Given that it has bluetooth and networking I can probably live without airplay, but I want to be able to connect my ipod (classic) to the front usb panel and control it with the remote. My understanding is I can’t do that on this unit without a special ipod dock (unlike denon, yamaha)? Can anyone confirm/deny?

Tempted, very tempted. But I actually like listening to the radio, and I look at the specs… nice amp, theater sound for more speakers than I’m gonna wire, wifi and bluetooth (and a wired ethernet port!), hdmi AND component switching for those older devices, client support for half a dozen streaming services… looks nice. But the tuner has AM but no HD radio? Just basic FM?

It’s like it’s wearing a top-notch tuxedo, and forgot to tie its shoes.

I got my 626 (from the other deal) a couple of days ago, and after a day of playing with the settings, I am struggling to get the volume high. The sound I am getting at half the level is worse than my cheap (50W) pioneer I used to have before.

Can the Onkyo rep help me? I saw a number of similar posts when I searched, but none seemed to actually be resolved.

I got no replies on the other thread. Hopefully will get some service here today!

Does anyone know whether an HDMI source can be output to Zone 2? Or, whether the Zone 2 menu interfaces would appear on the HDMI out to the display?

According to the manual, I think the first answer is no, only analog and NET/USB sources, but was hoping for confirmation.
