I have tested both Onkyo TX-NR6050 and Yamaha TSR-700 7.2 . in a 5.1.2 setup in my den. I kept the Yamaha and here is why:

Setup -Both are easy, no issues at all

HDMI Input - With both receivers, the Ruko and Sony Blu-Ray player plugged in and worked perfectly. But then, here comes the DirecTV Streamimg box. The DirecTV Streaming box is JUNK! The Yamaha did not like it at all. I had to take off the HDMI control to get it to work on the Yamaha. If I didn't do that, the HDMI would switch to another input, like the Roku. I looked up this problem with DirecTV and they said to disable HDMI control on the DirecTV box. Well, this the new Streaming box and it does NOT have this setting. I do not watch that much TV so I wound up not using the DirecTV Streaming box and just using the DirecTV app in the Roku, problem solved.

With the Onkyo receiver, the DirecTV Streaming box worked fine.

Front Display - The Yamaha front display is really small where the Onkyo is normal size and looks nice. The good thing in my den is the Yamaha is close to where I sit so the small size is not a problem for me. In my living room, that would be a problem and the Onkyo will work out great there.

I never tried the Denon receiver, with only 75 per channel, that just does not seem like enough to push my speakers

TV Display - With the Yamaha, when you are playing Adobe Vision, the volume control will NOT display. When not using Adobe Vision, the volume control displays fine. On the Onkyo, the volume control displays fine in all modes.

Sound quality, most important to me - I only use the den to watch movies. The sound from the Yamaha was a little better than the Onkyo. It was a little more crisp and with the Atmos sound is where the Yamaha really shinned compared to the Onkyo. I do not have Atmos in my living room so the Onkyo should be fine for that room's setup.

Wattage - Yamaha has 100w per channel while the Onkyo has 90w has 90w per channel. This is maybe why the Yamaha sounds a little better than the Onkyo

I kept the Yamaha over the Onkyo because the Yamaha sounds better, which is what I was after. All the other things were miner for me.

For the living room, I'm going with the Onkyo because of the DirecTV Streaming box issue. That is for my wife and the DirecTV Streaming box works better then Roku DirecTV app.
I bought this like 2 weeks ago when it was on sale and it just died today. The on screen display won't turn on and after googling it, apparently it's happened to a bunch of other people and it's probably due to a broken HDMI chip or something. And apparently onkyo doesn't really have technical support because they were just bought by another company.

So I'm not feeling too good about that purchase. Looks like I have to return mine and I'll try to find a brand I can trust more than this. It sucks because this was my first experience with an AVR, as I'm upgrading from an old soundbar.

An absolute unit. I have three active Onkyo in the house… one had the weird issues where it had to be sent in for recall, but besides that, for over 23 years I have used them without issue, my newest being a 555 from 2016.

They are already programmed into all of my Logitech remotes and I have been waiting for an upgrade, feel like now is the time.

Onkyo is a good brand, in any place you look for receiver reviews they are gonna be a brand that gets recommended. It sounds like you just got a bum unit. Keep in mind they sell millions of units, so you're going to be able to find "a bunch of other people" who also have issues. Make enough things and some of them are gonna have a problem.

Do what you want, just letting you know it isn't some rando company.

Don't be afraid to give it another try. I returned TWO and finally kept my third. Coincidentally, the third was also the unit I refused to upgrade the firmware on. Been a month or so and it's been fine. Had to call in to Costco to get the third, but the second was an easy replacement online.

Bought it for $499 through costco.com in December and couldn't be happier. Have it paired with my Jamo speakers for a 5.1.2 setup and it works flawlessly.

I am also utilizing the Zone 2 HDMI out with my TV in the living room and PC monitor in the bedroom. The zone 2 feature works well enough but does freak out from time to time and requires a reboot but the fact that they even offer this feature at all at this price point is a bonus so I won't dock any points.

"I never tried the Denon receiver, with only 75 per channel"
They all rate the power differently, you should really never look at the "specs".

Though of all 3 receivers Costco's selling right now, I feel like Yamaha would produce the best audio quality with their amp.

Onkyo wins if you need 2 HDMI out.
