I just bought a new sound system. It consists of all Onkyo products. I got a TX-SR 702 THX Reciever, DX-C 390 CD Player (MP3 Capable), and a TA-RW 244 Cassette Deck and a pair of Sony SS-MB 150 speakers for the rear surround.

Does anyone have any experience with Onkyo? Are they good and reliable? Any input would be appreciated.

No personal experience (my equipment is Harman Kardon) but I do have some friends that own their equipment. The equipment is reliable and does a good job at handling the audio. You're one of the few folks I see still putting a cassette deck in their home theater. Seems like a lot of folks are ripping their cassettes and burning them to CDs or just leaving them on a PC hard drive to play. Nothing wrong with having it, just making an observation.

Sorry, I have no experience with Onkyo, but shouldn't you have asked those questions before you bought?

I own two Onkyo receivers. They are reliable. It si aquklaity name in the middle of the audio market.
I never cared for all the signatures that insult posters with other points of view.

I almost went with the Yamaha RX-V 1500. I got the Onkyo because I got it about $400 cheaper than the Yami. Also got MP3 capability on the CD. And the Display is much easier to read than the Yami. Auditioned them both on more than one occasion. Could not tell much difference in them. If anything should happen to the receiver, CD, or Tape Deck, I got a 5yr extended warranty with it.

As long as you're happy with it, that's all that matters.

you should asked before you purchased it. you should NEVER purchase any electronic device without reading reviews, and first hand accounts from people that already have it. I can't see why you would waste money on a (analog) cassette deck? When did those go out of date? (1985?) Where is the DVD player, HDTV receiver ect. for DD. 5.1?

I bought a Toshiba SD-4900 about 6 mos. ago. And I have 100's of tapes that I want to play still. I gotta get the HD set in a few years. Just Built a new house and will be finishing the basement off into a Computer Room, Theater Room/ and another Full Bathroom with a Whirlpool Tub. I am very pleased with the Onkyo setup. I also added a Klipsch RW-10 Sub (575 Watts) about a month ago. I watched Top Gun in DTS 6.1 ES last nite and all I can say is WOW!! No caprision the the Yamaha 5250. I still have a VCR if that matters too. It's roughly 2 yrs old.

I had a Sony 715 Receiver. Nothing but problems and very poor sound. I would think twice about Sony recievers.

had Sony receivers for years, have one now and have never had any problems. Now, I know they may not be the best, but they work well. I guess you got a lemon, why didn't you have it replaced?

What did you do with your old sound system?
Do you DVR?

It is sitting in the computer room closet right now. FWIW- It is a Yamaha HTR-5250 DTS Reciever & a Sony CDP-CE 525 CD Changer.

You interested in it?
