Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Feature Packed Receiver A feature loaded receiver that is hard to beat, considering the numerous features, the excellent build and sound quality. Very easy to set up. The TXNR686 goes above and beyond for a mid-range item, and works exceptionally well with my 4k LG OLED TV and Panasonic 4K bluray player.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Price available on a Great Onkyo AVR I have been waiting to purchase this for a couple of months. Nothing beats it for features versus price.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Wireless connections stopped working after 3 month Really disappointed with this unit - within 3 months the Bluetooth and WiFi wireless connections both stopped working. The reason I bought this unit was for it's wireless connectivity The Onkyo app for this unit is absolutely rubbish too - I deleted it within a week of installing and trying to use. Was better-off using airplay... until that stopped working
