Mike Up\nSupporting Actor\nI have loved my Denon receivers but they have quirks that I don't like as anything. Music side, they sound great but on HT side, the AVR-2312ci is very complicated and had some analog to HDMI black level issues. It's equivalent to the Denon AVR-X3800H but with 7.1 channels. AVR3803 was the best receiver I've owned but it's only analog and 19 years old. It's equivalent to the newer Denon AVR-X4700H but with 7.1 channels.\n\nAnyhow, since I've moved to 4K and Dolby Vision in my living room (Denon AVR-2312ci 1080P HDMI Only) and 1080P in the media room (Denon AVR-3803 no HDMI), I have been getting irritated with no on-screen displays since everything goes through the TV's HDMI inputs, then TV's optical output to the receivers. This way I can enjoy 4K in living room and HDMI in media room.\n\nI would had loved to get the Denon AVR-X2800H but this is a $800 receiver selling for $1200. This is thanks to Denon jacking up their prices due to the Pandemic. Denon has had no discounts while other brands have had discounts trying to bring their selling price somewhat back to their previous Pre-Pandemic MSRP prices.\n\nLooking at the Onkyo TX-NR6100 at $700 looked like a great deal compared to the Denon AVR-X2800H for $500 more. Well I stumbled onto the Onkyo TX-NR6050 which is really a TX-NR6100 minus the THX feature for an amazing $440! I've never used THX sound features so I wouldn't had with the TX-NR6100. The Yamaha RX-VA6 was another that use to sell at $650 MSRP but jumped up to $850 MSRP with price raising. I had many Yamahas and every one either had firmware\/software defect, hardware defect, or dented or scratched faceplates with no box damage. To say the least, the Yamaha RX-V2095 was the last Yamaha I actually kept without returning for defects.\n\nI'm not so sure with this Onkyo as they have had HDMI issues and software\/firmware issues of their own while Denon has been pretty solid in previous years. I've read Denon did have some firmware\/software issues in the later receivers but no worse than any other brands fight with HDMI copy protection.\n\nHopefully I won't be disappointed with the Onkyo TX-NR6050 as it has a great feature set, good looking amp section, and unreal low price.\n\nI actually bought this mainly for the great deal. Otherwise I would had waited another 6 months to a year.\n\nAnyone here have good or bad experiences with it?\n\nI searched and seen most posts were about just recently bought receivers or were considering buying it.\n\nNow that it's been out for a while and likely setup in people's HT systems for some time, what's everyone's likes and dislikes?
