    Hi All..

    I got a friend of mine who is interested in getting Onkyo TX-NR900. Any opinions about it? Or any suggestions for ANOTHER reciever in the same price range. I believe the price is in the 1000-1500 range.

    Here is a link to it on crutchfield.com

    Specifically can someone please hihglight how satisfied they are with:

    The systems Power output?
    The Net-tune feature (does it work and is it worth the money)?

    Thanks

    This receiver replaced my TX-DS898 HT-Receiver, of which you can get for less than the TX-NR900.. The ONLY difference of the two, the TX-DS898 has the exact/exact same features with only three exceptions.....The TX-NR900 has Net-Tune as we know also DTS-96/24k audio processing and selectable LFE(80/100/120hz)crossover.



    I've had my receiver since 11/2001 and paid 1200.00.
    I would think this receiver today can be purchased for under $1000.00.

    I'm running all 7-chls and the power output(110w)is great(as in I'm not even thinking of buying an amplifier).

    In conclusion if you do not need the feature Net-Tune, the TX-DS898 would still be my choice. [​IMG] [​IMG]
