Onkyo Tx-nr656 7.2 Channel Network A/v Receiver Review (tx nr656)

My last onkyo unit lasted a good decade, still working perfectly and only replaced it with this unit because of hdcp, hdmi 2. 0, cec, etc being needed for 4k uhd. . This unit is a brilliant replacement for it, and another onkyo win! . . I won't waste your time with specs etc. I will simply say this unit sounds absolutely amazing, delivers amazing picture, the menus are intuitive and easy to use, and everything worked perfect out of the box. . Wi-fi connectivity makes updating the firmware a snap, and chromecast functionality (works great! ) was delivered on the latest update. . Also upscales very nicely. And for those with harmony remotes, this unit is fully supported. . At $400, this was a pure bargain and i couldn't be more happy with it. -. Cassella

Onkyo Tx Nr656 Channel Network Receiver Speakers

PROS
  • Really good receiver with top features at a reasonable price. It has 8 video inputs and is very configurable. It also supports dolby atmos through 2 ceiling speakers. It has 2 video hdmi outputs which is very useful if you're using it in a home theater setup where you can output to a tv or a projector.
  • The receiver is great, i upgraded from the tx-nr636 to this one because the 636 did not fully support 4k 60hz with full colour hdr. This one does. The sound seems about the same, but for some reason my tv which previously showed up as dolby on my 636 shows up as 2 channel pcm with this receiver. My other main gripe with this system is about the remote control which now is no longer universal so i can't turn the tv on/off (and no cec does not work because i sometimes turn just the tv off separately so i can run the projector with this receiver).
CONS
  • I'd give this receiver more stars, but i got a defective unit. It has 2 problems. . The first is the less serious one, but it is intermittent. When i go into the setup mode, i love the on-screen display of what's happening on my tv screen. More than half the time the on-screen display stays in sync with the one-line display on the front of the receiver. However about 1/4 of the time, it lags behind by as much as (longest delay timed by stopwatch) 67. 4 seconds, and when this is going on the least delay is about 5 seconds. So that problem is a pain, but i supposed i could live with it if i were past the "return for refund and buy another unit" stage. (thank goodness i'm not, and i'll be receiving my replacement this weekend. ). . However, the other problem is a major show-stopper, and it's the reason why i'm returning the unit. . When i first set up wi-fi on the receiver, everything worked without a hitch. (background: i'm a computer geek for a living, and i am *extremely* familiar with tcp/ip networking both wired and wireless (going up to at lest the oc192 level anyway - "common" gigabit-and-lower speed networks i can do in my sleep . It's a part of my job. ) however about 2 days later the receiver lost it's network connection and couldn't reconnect. . So i tried going through the setup procedure again, but this time after i entered the password, the receiver couldn't connect. That is, it appeared to "hang" for at least a minute, then it display ed the connection failure message, and after that it put me back at the setup prompt menu option. (this is essentially the same problem that people have complained about with onkyo receivers since at least 2016, and apparently onkyo still hasn't figured out that there is a problem. Sigh. ) actually at this point i have been through that procedure over 20 times with the same results every time. I have tried every variation i could think of, including but not limited to the following (not in this order but close to it):. 1) turning off and unplugging the receiver for 2 minutes, ditto for the wifi gateway, and then bringing up wifi and after it was up plugging the receiver back in and turning it on, letting it go through its startup process ; . 2) moving the wifi gateway significantly closer to the receiver (5 feet instead of 35); . 3) trying a second (and then a third) wifi gateway (different box, different private network); . 4) turning off all electronics which do wifi except the receiver and the tv, and then turning off wifi on the tv set; . 5) downloading and installing new firmware for the receiver; . 6) checking power quality/voltage/frequency going to the receiver (and all the electronics on that power circuit); . 7) naturally i had already rtfm'ed, but i reread it and made sure that every instruction had been followed to the letter (boring); . 8) searched on-line for possible solutions - including the onkyo forum. I couldn't post there, though, because after several days of waiting i'm still waiting for permission to post. (sigh - a not-all-that-heartening experience); . 9) contacted online store tech support and tried to contact onkyo tech support (which didn't work) ; . 10) contacted a former co-worker who now does high-end installations for home entertainment systems (he was the first one who told me to go ahead and return it). . Now before ordering this receiver i read literally all of its 1-, 2-, 3-, and 4-star reviews. (why not read the 5-star? because one is not likely to find someone with the real problems there. ). . Ignoring the wifi problem (which also made it impossible to use my phone as its remote), there was one other minor issue, but it could be cockpit error. My wife had downloaded an ir remote before i set up the wifi and got the wireless app for our phones. It worked fine at first but after the wifi went down, it's a little on the iffy side. While her phone is fairly new and she usually keeps it fully charged, i don't know what was going on, and while she has gone through multiple days of the ir remote (on her phone) working intermittently, when i tried it, it only failed to work twice (2 out of probably 100 button pushes - she gets maybe 10 out of 20 when it is acting "flaky" ), so i don't know whether it's her phone or the receiver. The same app installs fine on my galaxy s6, but it can't talk to the receiver at all. Again it could be a problem with my phone. . Sound-wise the receiver is excellent, and its array of sources and connections (a big reason i picked this receiver since we have a large vinyl collection of classical music and it actually has a decent phono input), and it's sound is excellent. (well excellent considering the speakers we have, and they're being replaced soon anyway). . Now this is not the same quality as the macintosh tube-type system i had used up until a couple of years ago, but then it cost less that 10% what that system cost (and i couldn't justify buying a replacement system at that price level), granted. But the sound is excellent, and for probably 99% of people who listen to their systems not more than a few hours a day, it will be far better than they could ever expect at this price. . I forgot to mention: my wife is a (professional) performing classical musician, and probably has better "ears" than i do, and she likes it better than the mac system, so if she (who is usually very picky about such things) is satisfied, i will take her opinion as "fact". The sound of this thing is amazing. And the ability to run a second set of speakers with even a different source is an added bonus. . One more thing. We have an extensive library of recordings made from live performances (and on-air performances) going back more than 30 years. They're all on tape (10-1/2" and 7" reel-to-reel, cassette, and dat-audio recordings). But like most receivers in this price range (or even at significantly higher ones), it has no tape-out option. We solved that the easy way. The zone2 line out connections can be used to drive a recording device, so we got around that problem altogether. (i understand that most people don't know or care about such things, but if you're one of them, that's the easy solution. We have a separate pre-amp which we use to drive any of 4 different recording devices as needed, and its output can go to the separate zone2 receiver as well. ). . So would i buy this receiver again? i can't say that until i get the replacement this weekend. If it's ok, i'll raise the review to 4 stars (not 5 - it has taken too much to find out that i had to replace the thing, and why did i come through with this problem in the first place? ). Otherwise i'll add a note that the replacement was bad, too, and i may lower but won't raise the rating.
  • Giving it 3 stars because sound is good but i think i either have a defective unit or it's just low end. I got everything plugged in and ran through the setup with the microphone. The sound in the rear speakers was distorted and crackling and multiple times it would not detect some of the speakers. Now that it's up and running, when i watch movies it seems like some sounds are missing and i hear distortion in people talking in my center speaker. I am using relatively high end energy speakers so i wonder if i need a higher end receiver.
  • Mine was a reconditioned model and i was disappointed that the front case was warped. Sound wise it's great. My only complaint is that the function buttons are not backlit. Even in a bright room, much less a darkened room, it's hard to read the controls. I have to keep a small penlight handy.

Right out of the box it requires a firmware update. No big deal right, it has wi-fi and a usb slot. First and all subsequent attempts to use the net update failed at about 9%. Decided to try using the usb and it failed without ever starting. I will be sending it back as soon as i get home from work. I never even got any sound out of it so i can't review how it sounds. . Update: great product. Video is awesome and audio is wonderful! i unhooked everything and completed the firmware update via cat5 direct to router. Unfortunate that it had to be done this way. Takes an electrical engineer to make it work so not user friendly. Once i figured it out it performed above and beyond expectations. I'm upgrading the rating but buyer beware, it's not easy to set up. Onyko could do a better job of making it more user friendly.

Click to see NoticeOnkyo Tx-nr656 7.2 Channel Network A/v Receiver (tx nr656)"Outstanding sound and features. Excellent revised remote. Many more steps to fine tune volume. As opposed to receivers that distort at level 25 or 30. Equalizer allows three different settings to fine tune speaker levels. Bass is powerful but refined osd is a pleasure to use! i have owned for 3 months and can not think of any receiver (even for several hundred more dollars) that has nearly as much to offer and i have tried to find one and would buy it. My fourth onkyo but not my last. Good job! will review again at 6 months. . As usual onkyo makes the best a/v receiver."

(0) Question: So according to onkyo, there is no warranty if we purchase it from premiere audio video?


(1) Question: Can you use the headphones with bluetooth on this receiver


(2) Question: Is it normal for the onkyo 656 to turn off after 4-6 hours of being on? i have auto-shutoff disabled.

Monoprice 24k Gold Plated Speaker Banana Plugs, Closed Screw Type 5 Pairs (109436) FAQ.

I found these easy to connect to speaker wire and install. Using them on a pair of jbl floor standing speakers. Once the speaker wire (16 gauge) was tightened through the eyehole of the plugs, the plugs socketed into the back of the jbls with no problem. Good sound, good signal as far as i can tell. 5 pair of plugs may seem like an odd number (no pun intended) of plugs but i assume the fifth pair is for a subwoofer, which not everyone may have (although a sub is always a nice addition! ). . Good plugs for the price, no complaints after six months of use. -Notice from . Smith, Islington

Not much to say about banana plugs but these worked perfectly for me application. Easy to install, which is kind of the point of banana plugs, make sure to get them nice and tight, and it makes plugging in speakers a quicker affair than messing with bare wire every time.

- Z. AliceNice. Easy to assemble. If anyone is worried about "paperclips" or whatever conductors shorting out the connectors, remember that clear shrink tubing is your friend.

A little tricky to get your speaker wire into. Had to go to the youtubes to figure that one out. Once you get the knack it's fine. Do what they're supposed to at a good price. I bought these to make it easier to insert/pull out the speakers from a difficult to reach back of receiver. Do the job. Just remember to calculate the added clearance behind the receiver on account of the plugs themselves.

The polk audio rc85i 2-way in-wall speaker delivers incredible sound to any room in your home without using any floor or shelf space. The rc85i is easy to install, requiring only that you cut a hole, feed the wires through, and simply drop the speaker in where it is held in place by rotating cams that safely secure the speaker with no extra assembly or mess.

Polk Audio Rc85i 2-way In-wall Speakers Pair, White (aw0085 a) FAQ.

I was able to install these in a pre-wire installation into my new home's family room. The template worked great and really liked how i could direct the sound a bit better to where it needed to go (aim the tweeter). Overall, a very well made product for what it is. . As for the sound, i wish there were more bass (but know that almost everyone will use a separate sub to provide that). The highs sound pretty good coming from the wall. The technology has come a long way in my opinion. . I am knocking off a star based on the price. I compared polk with a few other brands like mica and polk was more expensive. I still decided on the rc pairs based on reputation. -Notice from T. April, Buckinghamshire

Amazing sound. I adjusted the settings for my receiver with sound i was familiar with, then sat back to listen. Choose something great to listen to when you first use them and it will blow you away. Not super fun to paint but not terrible. Flat black looks great. Don't know why white is default. Installation not terrible either. Totally worth the price.

- K. NewellWhat can i say? it's polk audio. These are great rear speakers for a surround system. Shipped timely. Priced right.

I had two speakers go bad in my living room and i figured it would be a great time to replace them with in wall speakers. I saw some great reviews and although i'm an audiophile i'm working on a budget. These were extremely simple to install using the included template and fit into my walls with no issues. I haven't painted them yet but even without the paint they look great. Great buy for the money and great choice for a new system installation on a budget. I plan on replacing all my speakers with these next month.

Used these as the back 2 speakers in the ceiling for a 7. 1 surround sound setup. Very easy to install, although a bit nerve-racking to cut such a big hole in the wall! they sound great!

Polk-audio-rc80i-2-way-in-ceiling/in-wall-speakers-pair,-white-(aw0080-b) set picture

- D. MeredithThese are really great speakers. Excellent sound quality, great price, super easy to install, flushed with the ceiling, and look great! i've recommended them to many people, who have heard the quality and love them too!

I installed these speakers in my 30 x 18 kitchen. They sound very good plenty of bass but treble needs a boost from flat. I found the movable tweeter useless. I am using a denon 3313 ci and have it turned up pretty high about half for adequate listening. That is pretty high since the amp pushes 125w rms per channel. Mounting these speakers in the ceiling was simple provided you can cut a reasonably round hole +/- about 1/8th inch. Dispersion could be better but i have them in an 8 foot ceiling so i will be adding 2 more since the sound is good for the price.

The F.A.Q. for onkyo tx-nr656 7.2 channel network a/v receiver

Works good and sets up easily with initial setup. I've seen reviews of onkyos getting hot and not having room in back to wire the speakers. I haven't had problems with either. I have nothing sitting on top of it and i'm using 16 gauge wire. One problem is no rca audio output jacks to hook up the recording side of a recording component such as cassette deck or cd recorder. But this seems to be a standard problem with all new receivers. Didn't find any receivers with rca audio output jacks.

A number of questions have been asked here.

F. Moore, East Riding of Yorkshire says

This receiver sounds awesome! i have it paired with polk speakers. I can't think of anything that it doesn't do. And it does everything well!

D. Rhonda, West Virginia

Purchase from online store march of this year. I have done 3 updates using wi-fi without any problems. The sound quality is above the price range of this unit. I have had no hdmi problems or any other problems with this unit. Others have reported units arriving doa right out the box or hdmi issues. Just a note, if you research other units of other manufacturers have or had issues in the past or present issues it happens. For what i paid for this unit 349. 00 new so far it's money well spent. I am using this unit in a 5. 1. 2 really like the dts-x. For 2. 1 music i have the eq, set to my liking . I could go on about this unit, but the reviews are spot on with this unit. It is a good unit and it's performance is that of a much higher price unit.

X. Elida, Illinois says

Great sound! i found the setup to be simple and straightforward (i do not understand the reviews to the contrary). My system is 5. 1. Dts:x sparkles with exceptionally clear dialog. I have music tweeted to nero 6. I am particularly pleased not only with the sound but with the fact that the unit provides a dlna client that is very well designed. Comparable to plex and superior to, say, roku media player. Arc works perfectly; cec needs some assist from the remote to alter the source. . The (android) app is awful. This unit deserves something that is fully functional. Onkyo provides one that is awkward, incomplete and counter-intuitive. . I cannot get bluetooth to connect to any of my devices or a bluetooth speaker. In fact, in pairing mode it does not show up in a scan from any of my devices. I do not need to play material from my phone or tablet. However, i would like to be able to use my bluetooth shower speaker. Disappointed. . This replaces a five-year old denton with a zillion settings and terrible movie sound. I am neutral on the lack of dsp settings. It does offer three customizable equalizer presets. Dsp on other avrs can emulate a hall, for example, with a timing difference between front and surround speakers. I can do without the intentional introduction of distortion. The auto setup was very good. I had to reduce the volume of my sub-woofer a tad. . Overall onkyo keeps it relatively simple and that is fine with me. The bluetooth issue can probably be resolved with a firmware update. They need to start from scratch with their app. With those fixes this would receive a five-star review. . Indeed, i think that i will splurge on some atmos speakers.

C. Anonymous, Poole

I've recently decided to upgrade my system from a older 5. 1 pioneer d308 system (which was at it's limit for inputs etc). I have spent a day or so setting up this system as a 5. 1 system with the intention to go to either a 5. 1. 2 or a 7. 1 once i get my speakers sorted out. I am currently using polks as my front speakers and wharfdales for my rears and the sound is superb. I've tried auditioning music with 'direct' stereo mode and the sounds are crisp but a little lossy at the higher frequencies, however i have also used the stereo mode and my god it's like having the band be right in front of you. The sound-stage is incredibly clear. I have adjusted a couple of the levels and have used the mp3 enhancer which sorts out some lacking tones in the compressed audio. I am very impressed and as i do my own audio mixing i can now actually hear the nuances of the professionally mixed stuff on my hi-fi vs my studio headphones. I believe the equalisation using the supplied microphone has really sorted out the echoics using pink noise profiling. I have not had a chance to use atmos yet due to my speaker configuration but dtx and dts both work well. The menus are clear and easy to navigate. I now use the app on my ipad to control the system and it works well (albeit with some minor issues). I am streaming all my music from my nas (netgear readynas) and this system works well. It basically makes my slimserver device redundant (which is a good thing since i'm trying to get rid of stuff). The bluetooth connectivity works flawlessly as does the airplay. Network radio is something new to me and i really like the fact that i can play any radio station in the world using my internet connection. If i don't have internet i can always use my local fm/am reception! video passes through simply and the whole configuration of video/audio pairing is pretty straight forward. Basically you can assign any audio to pair with any video. All in all, i am very happy with my upgrade. I was not after a bells and whistle system but more for an all round entertainment unit for my living room. This unit has delivered in spades. Recommended for the normal person. I'm sure there are features on the more expensive units but in reality all i want to do is watch movies with surround sound, 4k resolution and listen to pink floyd in crisp fidelity (which i and doing right now and really enjoying it! ).

W. Zelda, Washington says

Fast shipping, system was easy to install , play & sounds great with surround sound clear and clean sound, would recommend this system

I. Teresa, Essex

Very powerful, crisp, a simple remote that's a delight, more hdmi's than most need, very happy with this unit.

T. Juliana, South Gloucestershire says

I have this paired with a kef system. Great features, great, clear sound. Good surround processing as well. Only complaint is that when connecting to web services for music (e. G. Spotify, pandora), it usually fails to connect the first couple times. But once it does connect with the service, it works fine. Do download the remote control app for your smartphone. Works great with the system.

U. Sherry, Mississippi

Very happy with this product. sounds great.

G. Cortney, Oklahoma says

Set this up to work with 4k tv, direct tv and blu ray. It works flawlessly and no extra buttons to push or adjustments to be made. The sound quality is excellent and the set up to balance speakers was easy and worked well. So far, so good after a couple of months.

H. Neva, California

Better than my $750 yamaha i bought in 2013 which quit on me already. Sound quality and volume is way better too!

R. Peggy, Louisiana says

I received the tx-nr656 almost a week ago, and have enjoyed it being the centerpiece of my media room. Cable, xbox, pc, and roku all running through the receiver to my arc equipped lg screen. Easy setup, easy to use, great sound, effective price point. Would buy again at this point.

J. Sheila, Haute-Normandie says

It's a good receiver, but one of my primary justifications for getting this model was the chromecast functionality. Now that it's been patched in, i was very disappointed to learn it does not support video output. Audio applications only. . That's my only gripe though. I've had good experiences with onkyo hardware in the past and this is no exception. I just wish the product description had been clearer that the (then unreleased) chromecast functionality was limited.

Z. Julia, Maryland

This replaced a1988 sony av950 receiver which actually cost more back in 1988. Suffice to say it was time to upgrade. This unit works very well with all of my home equipment (direct tv box, blue ray player, flat screen tv). It is intelligent in that it automatically turns on my tv and direct tv box. It also turns on the online store firestick when selected on the receiver. I did have a little trouble setting up the input for the firestick (listed as streaming) but once i figured out the process, all was good. I definitely believe that i got my money's worth.

E. Noguera, Lambeth says

First thing i wanted to say, i was about to buy this item on thursday night 4/13/2017 from online store, but ordering and shipping the item would not reach me till monday. Bought it locally in a best buy, but doing the review here. . I was very hesitant at first, i'm coming from the same model except it was upper model from this one but 3-4 years older lacking atmos and dts x, and newer updated feature. My older unit did have 30 watts more power and almost jumped to the matching similar unit, however, this one has more than enough and is updated with all newer sound codecs and older ones like dts master audio, true hd and legacy dolby digital, dts, pcm etc. I choose this one because of the 4k 60fps, hdr10 pass thru, wireless ac and bluetooth. As a bonus it supports fireconnect and multiple streaming services like pandora and google cast etc. Specs wise its up to date and supports everything out now in 2017. . The 2nd main reason for the purchase: it fits my home layout. . I have a 5. 1 system installed and buying over head speakers in a month to make it 5. 1. 2. Jumping to newer upper models would only get me more power, visual changes and more speaker connections like 9. 2, 11. 1 etc so if you have no desire of adding more speakers to expand the sound, its not worth the jump because you'll pay for features you wont use. This 7. 1 model will allow you to add two more speakers for atmos and dts x: (two speakers on top of your left and right speakers aimed at the ceiling to reverb back down or two on the walls aimed down). Which are easy installations than a 9. 1 or an 11. 1 and above system. The receiver allows you to select what layout you have. Menu is easy to use, simple, and very straight forward. Includes a setup microphone to determine distance and calibrates to avoid standing waves as well as speaker crossover. . After running the microphone calibration, you may need to fine tweak the crossover hertz rating on each speakers if you know them before hand. Sometimes auto calibrations changes them lower than they actually are, which can affect bass to your powered subwoofer. Lower the crossover on a speaker, less bass is pushed to the subwoofer, the unit 'assumes' the other speakers can push out heavy bass so it passes less bass signal to the subwoofer. . Tip: if you lack bass from a powered subwoofer after calibration, set all speaker crossovers to 80hz in the menu. Settings, crossovers, and switch them to 80hz. That should tell the receiver to allow the subwoofer to handle all low bass and midbass. If you have speakers that can output some bass, you can lower them but normally it's encouraged to let the subwoofer handle all bass no matter what setup you have. If you have satellite speakers (which have no bass) auto calibration should set them correctly (higher). This tip is only for more heavy duty tower/bookshelf speakers that lack built in 10 woofers. . Tip 2: auto calibration does an excellent job measuring distance and also calibrates room resonance. This can be disabled and you'll run the receiver with whatever signal you send it. Quick setting on remote, accuex and set to off. You can also disabled cinema filter but not needed. (it only balances harsh recordings and makes it tamed for a home). When set to off, speaker distance stays active, but any fine tuning from the system is turned off. You have to make the choice, since each house sounds different. . Pros: great sound, very clean, supports 4k 60fps, hdr 10, playstation 4 and pro compatible, atmos and dts x for object based surround (3d audio), more than enough power for a middle to large rooms, two wireless antenna, wireless ac blazing fast wireless speed and supports multiple digital radio stations like: spotify, sirius radio etc. Easy to follow and read menu, very straightforward not overly complex. Has two menu settings 'quick menu' for basic controls: subwoofer levels, on and off calibration settings. More compact remote which supports fast sound mode switching for movies, games and music. Keep pressing the button it cycles through various built in modes. $799 to now $400 came out may 2016 and still getting firmware updates: latest one was feb 23 which added: support for fireconnect and enabled streaming from network services/usb/bluetooth/music server. Also dolby vision will be added in an update sometime in 2017. . Cons: it's very hard finding a con since the unit is pretty up to date spec wise and perfect price. If i had to nit pick, i would say the front chassis on the unit is not heavy aluminium like upper models. It's a brush, semi metal finish, semi plasticky, not solid metal. Sorta like a hybrid. Basic front design. . Final thoughts. Completely worth the upgrade if you have a 5. 1 layout and have no plans on jumping to 9. 1 or 11. 1 speaker system. You can take advantage of the 5. 1 by adding the height speakers for atmos and dts x converting it into 5. 1. 2. My older unit had 30 watts extra per channel which allowed me to dial up the volume less to get more sound. You can do the same by just increasing the volume levels. No one plays receivers at full volume. The only benefit of higher volume would be less time to get to a higher volume level. Even though this unit has less power than my older system, it performers better, and much cleaner sounding than my old 3-4 year model. Very happy with the unit and only a day of playing with it. . Edit 4/19/2017:. . Onkyo update regarding dolby vision support. . Dolby vision, will be coming to the company s 2016 lineup of network 7, 9 and 11-channel models, ranging from the tx-nr555 to the pr-rz5100, via a firmware update scheduled for later this year (2017). (that also includes this unit, the tx-nr656). I verified this over the phone with a representative from onkyo after reading a few articles online on it.

S. Pearson, Portsmouth

No problems hooking up to my new samsung tv, 5. 1 speaker system, or using zone 2 in other rooms. All going very smoothly so far! loving it!

. Donna, North Dakota says

I can't express how happy i am with this receiver. I have always had yamaha's and even recently purchased a new rx-v679. The hdmi out went out on it within the first few months. I returned it and instead of trying it again, i went with this because it was so highly reviewed. I will say, it took a lot of getting used to the different sound/options/interface/etc. , but once i did, i have to say i am ecstatic with my move to the onkyo. The sound right out of the box was very bright. I adjusted it a little and changed some of the crossovers until i got it where i like it. I have klipsch towers/center/sub and they're always heavy on the mid/bass. It's like i got new speakers! the change is still a little hard to believe. It's still bright an clear, but with enough mid/bass to be full and rich. Like i said, this is my first onkyo, but i am so very impressed. Yamaha is really into the different sound fields, which i never really used much. This has minimal sound fields, so the interface is much simpler. The sound is probably tailored to movies more than music, but i can't complain about the music reproduction. It's bright and full for most everything i listen to. I use the app when i need to make any menu changes and so far i'm pretty pleased with that too. It could use some minor user interface changes to the overall design, but it's not unusable like some i've seen. Overall, this new receiver, which is a direct competitor to the yamaha replaced, has given new life to my home theater.

Q. Ruff, Nevada

We are upgrading our entire studios here at axion films/ignite studios. First we ordered 2 vizio 65" 4k smart monitors and then upgraded. Our studios sound system to the tx-nr656 network a/v unit. We are pushing 150w channel. Our commercials are clear and we very pleased with the unit. 7. 1 sounds fantastic! . . With the price drop under $349. 00 it was just time to make the 4k network jump with this unit! . You won't be disapointed with the quality. We installed a 120mm 12v switched fan on to the units top. And it helpes keep the unit running very cool as well. All in all it is giving us true 7. 1 studio quality sound!

A. Alexia, Dudley says

It satisfied my expectations and went beyond. Phono input a plus. Built-in net access is amazing; tunein radio provides free internet radio access where you can even search stations by continent. (even antarctica has a radio station! ) i found the 2nd zone useful to simultaneously send the output to my wireless system throughout the house. A microphone is included to balance all of your main/surround speakers & subwoofer(s) through a pre-programmed process. I can't speak for its 7. 2 performance as i only have a 5. 1 setup. Note that the thin manual does not fully reveal all the options the unit has to offer, so you'll have to explore. Note: if you connect your cd player via optical cable and your cd tracks start immediately after the track marker, the first split-second of such tracks may be clipped. This is not the fault of the receiver! it's the need for the digital pcm signal to be evaluated at the start of each track. If you use rca (red/white) analog jacks to connect your cd player, you will avoid this characteristic entirely. Another nice feature is that you can change the input name displayed. For example, my cd recorder uses the game input, but when i press game, i have programmed "cd rec" to be displayed instead. Also, the bd/dvd selector expects hdmi input, so i had to replace my old dvd player with one with hdmi output. (i could have used the vacant cd optical input but thought that it might cause a conflict with the analog cd input. )

O. Dorothy, South Carolina

Great receiver! set up was a snap! i love that we can cast from our google home! bluetooth works great! beautiful sound on our 5. 1 system!

P. Susana, Enfield says

So far this is perfect for our home theatre. Easy set up and now we have enough hdmi inputs for all our devices (except our wii which does not have an hdmi cord) which makes everything, even the roku, go through the tuner. So nice. Would recommend this unit.

Y. Colleen, Croydon

This is an awesome receiver. I see the price has increased from $396 to $599. I planned on buying another one but since the price went up so much i think i'll wait for the next new feature. I liked the one i got for my girlfriend so much, that i wanted to replace my five year old onkyo. I'm kicking myself for not recognizing what a deal i got with the first one. 11/22/2017 - somehow the price came down to $349, so i jumped on it. This is a steal. I know this probably means there is a new model with newer features but i still know that i am getting a great receiver. Yes, i'll probably want to upgrade in a couple of years. Atoms is awesome. What's next?



Top channel network av Review

Disadvantage and Critical reviews

I. Veronica, Hillingdon says

Hdmi tv out connection failed within 7 months of purchase. Would not buy another onkyo.

H. Lisa, Niedersachsen

I'm having trouble getting the zone 2 speaker on, so right now i'm a little disappointed that it is this hard to get the zone 2 speaker to operate. I'll be calling the onkyo company to finded out why. With the sound system i have, i should be able to just push the button for zone2 and it should operate the speakers in zone 2.

F. Lynette, Tennessee says

I normally do not write reviews but i felt this was a time to jump in and do it. The unit itself is awesome, sounds great and was relatively easy to setup. However 1 day after getting it all working i started having issues. My setup is simple: i have a samsung dvr from my cable company hooked into the cable/sat input via a new online store basics hdmi newest standard cable, a samsung blu ray hooked up into the bd input via the same type cable. Then i have the same cable going out from the main hdmi to my vizio smart tv. . Issues. - watching tv at the end of a dvr show i lost all sound. Picture was fine, there was no noises, cracking or popping. The input was still on cable/sat. I turned off everything and turned it all back on (via my harmony remote watch tv activity) and everything was fine. - turned on everything the next day and i had picture with no audio. Turned off everything and i got sound. . I googled this and found this was a common issue with the 646 model and it was well documented in onkyo forums. I am also a member of a home theatre group on facebook and someone was getting a 656 sent to them from onkyo because their 646 was having the issue. . I called onkyo support and was told that there is no issue with the 646 and this and "the people on the only support forum can say whatever they like". I was then told to do a factory reset on the unit and hope that fixes it. This is not an acceptable answer for me. To just say we don't know so try and restart is not something that ever really fixes anything. . It is really sad because i love this unit feature and sound wise but don't think i can deal with this issue.

X. Reed, Kensington and Chelsea

My onkyo was purchased in may and had to wait for hook up for 6 weeks due to construction on my house. It has been a disaster from the beginning. The cable outlet connection does not work. Being so new onkyo told me i had to take it to a repair location over an hour away. I am disabled and been unable to get to the location. Each time i turn it on it reverts to tv output. I change it to the cable connection and it will not play. I have tried numerous connection options but it will not play the cable connection. To get it to play i have to switch it to stream box (my dvr connection). When i start the dvr it reverts to the cable connection which does not work. I have connected it to a dvd recorder and it is a mess. I had a yamaha previously and never had a problem. Even when only one connection is connected it plays on an output that is not even plugged in. I have attempted more times than i would like to admit to reset the onkyo setup with no luck. It is a disaster. This is all too complicated and just plain horrible. I do not know how to recommend this to anyone. I have contacted the company 2 times. The first time they said it was my samsung tv and the second time they said it was the cable outlet.

B. Guest, Bolton says

I bought this receiver in february, and was impressed with not only the sound but the amount of features that it offered for a reasonable price. However, nine months later and no sound or audio is coming from the main or sub hdmi outputs. I get it, things happen, but the onkyo support has been less than helpful. I was told to take it to my nearest service center, unfortunately there are none in my area, and onkyo has since stopped replying to me. I will never buy another onkyo product again.

G. Matherly, Bradford

The sound is great, however i had trouble setting a few things up. I called onkyo they told me to exchange it with online store. The gentleman sounded 14. I waited a few days called back and had a nice woman pick up. She spent some time trouble shooting it. We were able to fix it. However, their hdr is 60 hrz and my tv is 120hz so i have to turn my hdr off to see my playstation 4 on my tv. However, it still looks great and sounds good.

S. Yvette, Victoria says

I bought this receiver on june 2017. Its now october 2017. Now i m getting a ng:lcrslsrblbr. It s not working anymore. Can t get anything to work. Please help.

Z. Cindy, Surrey

The receiver was great till the hdmi output failed. This is a known issue with this model and others in the onkyo line. The problem didn t show itself until two months after having. Very upsetting. I called onkyo and they confirmed they had a manufacturing problem that caused the issue. Warranty should cover the issue but know i have to send off and wait 2 to 3 weeks for repair. After it returns, i m still not confident it won t happen again.

. Alberta, Wyoming says

Hdmi output issue problem reported by many other users. First unit could not find sources from dvd players or game systems. It showed its own video feed but would not find any others. I am an engineer and highly skilled in av. I verified all settings were correct. Spoke to customer service. The problem was with the unit. Very poor qa at manufacturer!

Y. Margaret, Maryland

Actually a bit disappointed in the lack of power this unit has but it does get the job done. My old onkyo had significantly more volume capability but sadly, it died. Other than that, its very similar to my previous onkyo experiences (this is my 3rd onkyo receiver in the last 20 years, so im a long time user of their products). . Lots of hdmi inputs and outputs in this, plus still some old rca jacks for a turntable and cd player (yes, i still have and play both cds and vinyl records). . Very easy to set up. I feed the rear speakers thru a rabbit wireless system instead of hardwiring rear speakers; it worked perfectly. Onkyo has improved the automated speaker setup with this model over what i had before.

D. Brenda, South Tyneside says

On paper this was a great receiver. It was pretty much the only receiver that ticked the boxes i was looking for, namely an hdmi switcher with plenty of inputs including component video for an older dvd carousel i have, plus bluetooth and network features (i. E. Pandora). I didn't actually need/want the home theatre or amp functionality. I was a bit disappointed it didn't have pre-amp outputs, but like i said i couldn't really find a suitable switcher with those features that wasn't a dedicated amp. . So that is actually the first shortcoming i noticed. My goal was to hook into a full house audio system i already had so was hoping to get some line-level outputs. There is the zone 2 outputs which is what i'm using, and i guess they work fine for that, but that doesn't integrate in well with the normal functioning of the unit, so for example when i switch between inputs, i have to switch the zone 2 as well. . Strike 2 is that the software on the device is pretty poor and non-intuitive. Specifically the setup menus appear to be "context sensitive" in that certain menu items are grayed out (unavailable) at times. I think this is because the particular menu i'm interested in doesn't apply based on other settings for the current input that's selected and how it's configured. Or at least that seems to be what's going on. Honestly it makes no sense to me and it just seems random and frustrates me. An example of this is trying to configure the sound output to go over hdmi to my tv. For some reason this is switchable on or off. But it appears that if you have the speakers configured in some way for the given input that the menu where this option appears stays grayed out. It's very frustrating! . . And that leads me to strike 3. The software seems pretty buggy. The reason i need to occasionally go and reconfigure that setting is that occasionally the receiver forgets that i've turned on the hdmi sound output to tv and goes back to its default "output to speakers" mode. So then i have to go fight through the menus to get to the one that turns off the speakers so i can turn the hdmi back on, or something like that. Like i said, it's very non-intuitive and frustrating. . And just the other day i found that the unit thought it was still connected to my phone over bluetooth. To be fair, our power went out when it was, but when the unit rebooted it was in a crazy state. Since it thought my phone was still connected, it wouldn't let me connect my phone or any other phone. And when i tried to go into the menus to see if i could clear this issue out, at first the menus popped up, but switching bluetooth on/off didn't appear to do anything except get into a mode that when i hit the menu button it just said "now initializing. " indefinitely on the display. And because the power button is only a "standby" button, the only solution was to physically unplug the unit and start all over again.

V. Heidi, Northamptonshire

During the setup the remote broke. Customer service gave me a number to call to get a replacement. I called twice and was on hold a very long time with no person to speak to. I just gave up and ordered a new one that cost me $20. Not what i was expecting. Onkyo i am disappointed.

U. Shawna, Derby says

I purchased this on march 10, 2017. Today, 07-21-2017 it died i. E. , will not turn on at all. Tried everything. It has a two year warranty, but the nearest service center is 210 miles away so i box it up with my time and expense and send it off or trash it and buy something that will work. So tired of these corporations always winning while the consumer has little recourse.

C. Kimberly, California

The sound is not working and is very low.

Q. Betty, Hawaii says

First time buying receiver by brand. Had issues with hdmi output. And from what i leaned online it's a overall issue with brand. With multiple models. I won't be buying this brand ever again!

E. McCarthy, North Somerset

I was wary of the reported lpcm audio issues with the predecessor to this receiver, the tx-nr646. I bought the 656 hoping that these issues would be resolved, but unfortunately they are not. When playing lpcm audio after even a short silence of a couple seconds, the receiver takes a second to start playing, truncating the beginning of the sound. For short intermittent sounds like menu clicks, or skipping through video with a skip button, this can result in no sound at all. Continuous audio content, like your typical movie, has no issues, but this is an annoying bug that onkyo apparently has no intention of fixing. Lpcm audio is typically the default for hdmi audio, so this is not a question of an exotic configuration.

A. Alma, Mississippi says

Never worked completely correctly, at first sound would come out of all but 2 speakers but after a couple of weeks there was no sound. Problem was with the receiver, not the tv or speakers. Called manufacturer tech support, after they finished their analysis they recommended returning it. We had it less than 30 days so returning it to online store was not a problem.

K. Russell, Centre

I have just bought this to replace a nine year old tx-sr705 which had performed well but was starting to have issues. I cannot fault the sound from the tx-nr656, the quality of my 7. 1 setup is great. The three star review is due to two issues. First, i feel it is a little deceptive to promote the bluetooth functionality without making clear that output to headphones is not an option. I think it is unreasonable to expect customers to know that. The second issue is the lack of functionality in the remote. The supplied remote that cannot be used to control any other devices is very disappointing. My old tx-sr705 remote could control every device i connected to it (except ps3).

L. Wimbish, Oklahoma says

Garbage! warranty sucks! don t buy! absolute waste of a lot of my money! edit: sent receiver to california to have it fixed. After waiting 2 weeks, i was informed that my receiver was working properly. What? onkyo is garbage and their warranty is a lie!

T. Rita, Florida

I've had the receiver for 6 months. Worked great, love the feature set but then all the sudden the arc stopped working properly. When i changed to an application on my smart tv the receiver wouldn't switch over to tv any more. I now have to manually switch to tv to get it to work (which of course won't work on my tv's universal remote). Same thing happens when switching back from tv apps to cable (via the receiver). No big deal, i've only had it 6 months so it's under warranty, right? nope! they will fix it if i take it from raleigh, nc to the nearest repair center in winston salem, nc nearly 2 hours away, drop it off (drive home) then come back and pick it up when the fix it. Alternatively, i can pay to ship it there and back. So, not sure what the repair experience would be like, but just beware that the warranty isn't so great if they only have one repair center in the entire state and won't pay for you to ship it there. Check for the location of your local repair center first before buying anything onkyo! too bad it wasn't either reliable or well supported, this would have been a nice receiver.

The equipment i purchased has slowly started to fail. To hdmi inputs no longer work and the remote control have stopped working. I communicated with customer service about with these issues and was assured the unit would be replaced. I was informed on sunday, a replacement was not available, and a credit for the replacement unit would be provided.

I've been one of those "lifelong" onkyo customers, going back to a tx-15 am/fm stereo receiver. The '656 was probably the sixth onkyo receiver i owned, but due to the linear pcm noise gating bug that lops off starting drumbeats, a person's first syllable, etc. After a moment of silence, i returned it. . If you don't care about losing the first moments of a song, or even a surprise extra silence in the middle of one, this is a decent receiver with lots of connection options, the ability to bi-amp your front speakers, etc. But, if you actually want to hear everything, put this one down and keep looking.

If you like to gamble, then by all means buy the tx-nr656. If you do not like gambling and wonder why i am sour, just google "ng:lcrslsrblbr error code onkyo". Straight out of the box it threw this error code. Upon research these units appear to be notorious for this issue. I went through the enter-power button reset several times, with the code continuing to reappear. I unplugged all wires, unplugged the unit, left off several seconds, turned back on to the same error code and no sound, etc. Called onkyo customer service, sat on waiting for a rep to pick up for 15 minutes before hanging up and returning to online store. If you're too lazy to research the issue, then just take my word for it, you're likely going to buy a black box with a pretty blue error code on the lcd readout. Enjoy.

Truthfully i loved every thing about the reciever. I couldn't say enough about it. Except it got very, extremely hot, and there was no sound until the volume knob started passing 50. Then you could only crank it up for about 10 minutes then it would say overload. If they could fix the volume and the heat situation it would be the perfect receiver. I sent it back and ordered the pioneer sx30n reciever and it's beautiful crank it up all day and it barely gets warm and it's a true 80 watts per channel that's not fiction. I ordered that from online store also.

All in all i do like this this product however it has one significant defect. One of the primary reasons why i purchased an internet capable receiver was to be able to listen to internet radio via tunein. The problem with this receiver is that there appears to be a fault in the tunein implementation. The fault is that various radio stations simply will not play, even though they do play ok when accessed via tunein on other equipment such as my pc or iphone. For example, neither of my two 'local' classical stations (kusc or kmozart) will play.

Everything works awesome but couldn't get the blu ray to work at all. All i had was sound. I found the solution. Called onkyo tech support and they had this problem straightened out in short order. Apparantly there is a feature called "hdmi deep color" that is present in blu-ray players and also a variation of it supported by their receivers. Apparantly the problem is compatibility between the 2 devices. If both the blu ray and the receiver both have the deep color option enabled, a conflict can occur and all you get is audio through the hdmi chain. The solution is to turn off the deep color feature on one device or the other. To disable it on the tx-nr646, you press and hold the "strm box" button and toggle the power button until you see a message in the display indicating that dpcolor is disabled. Power off the receiver, turn it on, and the issue should be resolved.

I bought it and sent to a house where i was spending vacations in orlando-fl. Then i brought it to brazil. Always inside the box. When i turned it on, the receiver wouldn't come out from the "headphone mode", even with no headphones plugged. The sound wouldn't come out from the speakers. Now i had to pay to fix a brand new receiver.
