4 Star Review  productwiki.com - Apr 28, 2009

The Onkyo TX-SR875 is a high-end 7.1 channel audio/video receiver as part of Onkyos latest lineup of products supporting HDMI 1.3a. Along with the flagship Onkyo TX-NR905, the TX-SR875 are the first receivers to include Silicon Optixs acclaimed Reon-VX HQV video processing chip that effectively up-rezzes all video sources to 1080p. The receiver features 4 HDMI inputs, and 1 HDMI output delivering 1080p signals with audio. From the audio and amplification standpoint, the TX-SR875 features a dual push-pull amplifier configuration, with a three-stage inverted Darlington circuit. It also includes top-of-the-line Burr-Brown DACs for high efficiency and high current with low distortion. It also supports bi-amplification (with compatible speakers), and bridged operation for a high power setup. In normal operation, this receiver can deliver 140 W to each of its 7 channels. Features Full A/V Processing via HDMI 1.3a with Upconversion (4 in 1 out) HDMI Deep Color Capable (36bit) Component Video ... PROS: (1) Reon-VX HQV video processing (1080p) (2) Upscales all video sources to 1080p/HDMI (3) Decent SD video source upscaling (4) High efficiency, high current, low distortion (5) Supports bi-amplification and bridged operation ... CONS: (1) No tweaking of the REON processor except to disable xvYCC (2) Problems with HDMI handshaking with some video sources (3) Automated Audyssey setup required some manual tweaking for acceptable results (4) Audio/Video lip sync issues when watching HD DVDs and playing my Xbox 360, especially games where timing is an issue like Guitar Hero II and III. (5) Video source problems with video pass-through.

Onkkyo TX-SR875 Receiver
5 Star Review   By member nottie164 - Mar 17, 2008   

Strengths: Great Sound, fairly easy to set-up, I'm no technician by any means.

Weakness: Gets very hot even though it's well vented. I wouldn't leave it on all day unattended.

I've only had this receiver a few days and so far so good. The sound quality far surpasses my 15 year old receiver. You have sound that truly "surrounds" even with old speakers it's hard to tell one from the other. The sound is "just there." I haven't had a chance to play any movies or DVDs, just the tuner, CD, and TV. It has a nice large display so you can tell where you are at. There is still a lot to learn and a lot of features that I haven't had time to look into like the different listening zones which I think will be great. It certainly has lots of plug ins and even supports my old turntable! Overall it was a good investment and hopefully will last a long time.

5 Star Review   By jose33029 on 6th Ave Electronics - Feb 23, 2008   

Strengths: Excellent features; it has everything that you want in a receiver

Weakness: Runs very hot, and very heavy

I purchased the Onkyo TX-SR875 because of its features, THX Ultra2, upconversion REON VX etc. I am very happy with this receiver, so far I have encountered no problems. It is true that this receiver runs extremely hot, but I solved this problem by buying a ten dollar fan at Walt-Mart. I have kept this baby running for 8 hours, listening cd's, and the fan keeps it cool. I hope this baby continues running well, if I encounter any problems I will tell you all about it

5 Star Review   By member rushhound - Feb 18, 2008   

Strengths: Tons of flexibility and LOADS of power!

Weakness: Can Double as a space heater!

Have been owned many Onkyo receivers over the last 20+ years and they have always offered a lot of bang for the buck! The TX-SR875 is no exception. I also looked at the comparable models from Yamaha and Denon. I wound up opting for the Onkyo for the sound quality, abundant power and especially the Reon upconverting for standard DVD's. I like the ability to plug in several HDMI devices like HD DVD and Blu-ray. I also have about 2000 standard DVD's that I have no intentions of getting rid of that benefit from the awesome upscaling from the Reon. It does get a bit toasty so I would avoid placing anything on top of it.

Weakness: VERY HOT AND HEAVY.

1ST THE bad of this receiver is that it gets extremely hot. Not to the point it will burn your house down but it will hurt your hand. To beat this i may buy a notebook cooler like i did for my playstation 3. Works like a gem. Now everything about this receiver is incredible this is my second Onkyo and it took me away from Yamaha which i used to swear by. IT sounds incredible and so crystal clear and the picture via vers. 1.3 Hdmi is incredible. Simply put it made my direct from cable Star Wars Series 1-6 in 1080I look incredible in 1080P . unbelievable smooth. This receiver is expensive no doubt but so worth it.

ONKYO TX-SR875 RECEIVER
5 Star Review   By member alluu - Dec 9, 2007   

Strengths: 4 HDMI 1.3 inputs / 1 HDMI 1.3 output HQV Reon-VX Video Processing (1080p)

Weakness: Slight audio sync delay Receiver does get very warm

I had considered the Onkyo TX-SR875, the Denon AVR3808CI, and Yamaha RXV2700 and found that the TX-SR875 was the best value for your money audio/video receiver. It has 4 HDMI 1.3 inputs. What sold me on this receiver was the 1080p video processing using the highly acclaimed Reon-VX chip. Because of the great reviews this receiver has gotten, it is hard to find in stock at retailers.

Strengths: most bang for your buck. Has all the features you will need for high end audio and High Def. Video

Weakness: heavy and hot

I purchased the Onkyo TX-SR875 because of it's extensive features. THX Ultra2, 4 HDMI inputs, upscaling of video, and it's low distortion numbers. All those feature and much less costly than a comparable Denon. I had an Onkyo receiver before and the weight and heat were issues with that receiver also. Those are minor issues considering all that the Onkyo delivers.

Onkyo TX-SR875 Home Theater Receiver Review
4 Star Review   By member brianwright - Sep 29, 2007   

Strengths: Lots of features, Dolby HD, DTS HD

Weakness: Slow to switch sources, expensive

I upgraded to the TX-SR875 from an Onkyo TX-SR703 mainly because I was out of HD inputs on my receiver and the TX-SR875 has not only component video but HDMI inputs as well. I was also wanting the new Dolby HD decoding but have since learned it only decodes Dolby HD from Bitstream players. Sony PS3 can output Dolby HD over PCM to the receiver, so you really only need a 7.1 receiver with an HDMI input to listen to Dolby HD otherwise make sure your player has Bitstream output for Dolby HD. Xbox 360 Elite down converts Dolby HD to ProLogic IIx. Also, the TX-SR875 can upconvert video to HDMI, though my Xbox on component video to HDMI doesn't appear as clean it was on my SR703 mainly because the black colors are brightened too much. The only other negative thing about this receiver is HDMI switching is slow, even when the resolution only changes it takes a while for it to resync, ie when changing channels or a video game changes resolution in the middle of the game. If I hadn't needed the additional inputs, I probably would of held out longer with my TX-SR703 until the price came down more on this model. I also considered the Denon but stuck with Onkyo because of their remote control.

The Onkyo TX-SR875 Receiver destroyed my lcd tv
1 Star Review   By member QLOCI - Sep 21, 2007   

Strengths: Onkyo TX-SR875 Receiver the destroyer

Weakness: The Onkyo TX-SR875 Receiver destroyed my lcd tv. The top of the case above the hdmi output was hot enough to fry eggs on.

The Onkyo TX-SR875 Receiver burned out the hdmi inputs to my lcd tv as soon as I turned the power on. Onkyo technical support could not offer me a solution and hung-up on me when I asked them to pay for the damage to my lcd tv. I have not been able to get any programming source to work over the hdmi connection to my lcd tv since the Onkyo TX-SR875 Receiver damage it. I have returned the Onkyo TX-SR875 Receiver to my retailer. This is the first product manufactured by Onyko that I have purchased--- and it is most certainly the last!

The only other negative thing about this receiver is HDMI switching is slow, even when the resolution only changes it takes a while for it to resync, ie when changing channels or a video game changes resolution in the middle of the game. If I hadn't needed the additional inputs, I probably would of held out longer with my TX-SR703 until the price came down more on this model. I also considered the Denon but stuck with Onkyo because of their remote control.

The Onkyo TX-SR875 Receiver destroyed my lcd tv
1 Star Review   By member QLOCI - Sep 21, 2007   

Strengths: Onkyo TX-SR875 Receiver the destroyer

Weakness: The Onkyo TX-SR875 Receiver destroyed my lcd tv. The top of the case above the hdmi output was hot enough to fry eggs on.

The Onkyo TX-SR875 Receiver burned out the hdmi inputs to my lcd tv as soon as I turned the power on. Onkyo technical support could not offer me a solution and hung-up on me when I asked them to pay for the damage to my lcd tv. I have not been able to get any programming source to work over the hdmi connection to my lcd tv since the Onkyo TX-SR875 Receiver damage it. I have returned the Onkyo TX-SR875 Receiver to my retailer. This is the first product manufactured by Onyko that I have purchased--- and it is most certainly the last!
