Last time this was $300 it was a front page deal!

This receiver has an awesome feature of analog to digital conversion. Which means you don't need to run component/rca cables to your tv for a wii or older component hardware.

Limit 1. 1 year warranty, not bad for a refurb.

Compared to same unit on amazon for $399.99. New these run for $499.99 on amazon.

good deal.... I am just afraid of all the HDMI issues onkyo has had... ironically I'd feel better buying a refurb than a new one... hopefully they figured out the issue and have replaced the old/bad HDMI board...

But I've still read reports of refurbs with HDMI issues.

Plus I use a HTPC so I figure if anything is going to have handshake issues it would be someone non-standard like that.

looks good on the specs but my 3 years old onkyo TX-NR609 has more power & lower THD compare to this.
This model:
95 Watts per Channel (8 Ohms, 20 Hz 20 kHz, 0.08% THD, 2 Channels Driven); 115 Watts per Channel (6 Ohms, 1 kHz, 0.7% THD, 2 Channels Driven)
TX-NR609 :
100 Watts per Channel at 8 Ohms, 20 Hz 20 kHz, 0.08%, 2 Channels Driven, FTC; 125 Watts per Channel at 6 Ohms, 1 kHz, 0.1%, 2 Channels Driven, FTC

In audio systems, lower THD means the components in a loudspeaker, amplifier or microphone or other equipment produce a more accurate reproduction by reducing harmonics added by electronics and audio media.
In power systems, lower THD means reduction in peak currents, heating, emissions, and core loss in motors.

Unless you are running the receiver at "11" you will never know the difference.



Does this receiver have a feature where you plug in a microphone and it measure and sets chanel levels to be optimal similar to Yamaha YAPPO?

Somehow, the HDMI issues in Onkyos seem exaggerated. I have had three Onkyo receivers in the last three years ( sold one, gifted one and using one ). All of them were from Onkyo's refurbished sale on their website that goes on periodically. I never had any issues so far.
Again, I may be just lucky to not have the issues. bounce

I have the previous year's model the 616 which I got from an SD deal for $319. There was an even better price at $299, but I missed it.

I am very happy with it, but if you are buying this year's model you shoudl know what you get (and don't) compared to last year's.

This year's model actually has less watts per channel (115 watts v 95 watts), but adds MultiEQ (don't know what that is which tells me I might not need it), built in Bluetooth, and built in Wifi. The last two I might need if I ever move it to a location that doesn't have a network drop, but every room in my house has one, so it is not likely. The new model also does not have video upconversion for analog signals which seems weird that they removed watts and upconversion for the other features.

Yes, and it comes with a mic specifically for the set-up with a very long wire (or at least it does when new).

I agree I can say that I haven't had any issues with my Onkyo 809 and I can say that I use it close to 4-5 hours a day for the last year and a half but I have it properly ventilated with 2 fans to make sure it does not over heat but I would do this for any of my receivers

It does, it has Audyssey, which is generally more highly regarded that YPAO.

Yup. Audyssey MultEQ(R)
MultEQ equalizes your system to tailor the sound to suit the unique shape of your room. Measuring six listening positions, MultEQ applies filters to satellites and subwoofers to create a perfectly balanced soundstage
