GIBBY's B-Stock ONKYO TX-NR 787 $399

Deal Link:
Price:
$399
Retailer:
GIBBY'S
If you're on the fence about making the jump to ATMOS/ DTS X, now is the time to jump in as the newer model is out!

I bought this amp for about $100 more about 7 months ago from GIBBY's and have been very pleased with it's performance.

Price is OK.. I think I paid $499 at BB at christmas time for a brand new one. Returned it for the Denon 3600 though.

Looking to replace my Crestron amp for 1 JBL 322CT and a pair of 226C

Which would be the cheapest B-stock to do the job?

Edit: e.g. which one is the cheapest one that can be bridged to provide enough juice to my 12” sub?

How do you find it's room eq or whatever they call it vs audyssey? When switching on devices hooked up to the 2 hdmi outs, do you find the 2 sources (say a projector and led tv) constantly losing signal? Almost like they're fighting one another for signal?

I was replacing a 10 year old Pioneer elite, and I really coudlnt get the Onkyo to sound any better. It sounded ok for home theater, but seemed to lack for music. The Denon just seemed like a better investment if I was going to get another 10 years out of it. Pre-amps, 3 hdmi out and 2 subwoofer outputs, eArc etc.

For the price though, the Onkyo is a decent receiver. Atmos and 9.2 for $400..

Just purchased a Denon 3500H today from London Drugs for $300+tax it was a demo model but is in mint condition. Full 3 year warranty was thinking about the B stock 3600H from Gibbys but really don't need the 9.2 capability (have 7.1 setup) for the price I paid I'm happy, now just to find a good deal on a 65" LG C9 OLED.

I can't speak to audessy as I've never used it.. but I can say that most people that pan ONKYO threads (including the dingus that downvoted this thread) are usually comparing it ONKYO'S older version.
This amp features their newer ADVANCED eq version. As a guy that used to crawl around with an SPL meter and test tones, I can say that I am very impressed with what this amp was able to accomplish with its supplied mic and internal setup procedure in my dual sub smallish home theater. I have it setup in a 7.2.2 configuration and the upgrade has been significant enough to make me update my projector to 4K in order to keep the visual side of my HT up to par with the audio..lol..

OP i hate you.

Must resist...

How is this with heat? I'm looking to replace my 8 year old Onkyo TX-NR515. It was never as good as the Pioneer I had before, I had a 9XX model but needed HDMI so picked up the Onkyo 515.

I liked the Onkyo, but never happy with is, especially after one HDMI board replacement, and currently once in a while it goes click click, reboots or does something strange.

I thought I would never consider another Onkyo, but $399 is really good for the specs.

I used PIONEER exclusively for years, before I made what I thought would be a "temporary" cheap stopgap measure with a SONY amp to get HDMI switching..
I ended up happy with my 7.1 system for almost 7 years without any upgradeitus...
I thought ATMOS and DTS X were gimmicks, but when I saw this amp at this price point, I figured why not?
I know about ONKYO'S HDMI issues and have been told that these have been corrected and that their price points reflect there attempt to win back customers..
My experience with this amp has been great so far .. ATMOS/ DTS X is no gimmick.. it's the real deal and represents a much bigger jump than 5.1 to 7.1..
Where this amp has cost me is my new case of upgradeitus.. first seeking out new matching height channels. Separating my mains further allowed for a larger screen... and room for a second sub (amp has two sub outputs)..a larger brighter screen warranted an upgrade in projector to 4K... now I can move my seating even closer to the screen... considering new HT seats..
