Does the 818 support Netflix, Amazon, Hulu etc?

Thanks,

The TX-NR818 is audio only. You can run external device through it though - like a Roku or Apple TV.

OK, thanks. I thought that was the case but wanted to check and didn't see it mentioned on the Onkyo site. My Blu-Ray player will, so I'm OK.

Thanks again,

I have an Apple TV, Roku and a Pioneer BDP-150 connected to my 818 that all provide streaming functionality.

I also own a Denon AVR-3313ci. The Onkyo TX-NR818 blows the Denon away in sound quality.

If you didn't already purchase the 818 and are looking at other brands, I personally feel that the Onkyo 818 is the best Dollar value out there. It probably weighs at least 10 lbs more than my Denon 3313ci and build qualy is substantially better than the Denon at the same list price. Onkyo really put a lot of thought into the 818 as they were constructing it. Just my 2 cents.

Appreciate the comments. I looked at the 717 and 818. Seems like (to me) that the 818 is somewhat over-priced compared to the 717 (that I have seen on the net for $525). The main difference that I see is the level of Audyssey (XT32 on the 818) and NOT on the 717.

My Denon AVR-3313ci has the same list price as the 818. It doesn't have the XT32 version of Audyssey either. There really is a substantial difference in the way the bass and LFE sounds with XT32.

I had a TX-NR717 before I got the 818. Unfortunately mine was defective which is why I returned it and got the 818. The 717 definitely gives you some bang for the buck. I got mine for $549. Half the price of the 818.

The 818 really is built like a tank though. There are even two thermostatically controlled fans under the front heat sink. I have two USB fans plugged into the rear USB port on my 818 that blow air over the top all the time anyway, so mine always remains cool.

Good luck with your purchase decision!

One really nice thing is that Onkyo has this support forum for us. How many other manufacturers do you know that provides such a service for its customers?
