What customers say about "Features"
Onkyo TX-8270 2 Channel Network Stereo Receiver with 4k HDMI
  • I use the recommended Onkyo controller app on my phone & tablet and the receiver delivers a wonderful image and description in real time off of my handhelds, so, I am quite satisfied.
  • One of the best features is that you can stream music services with it after downloading the Onkyo Controller app.
  • The app lets me control and turn on and off from anywhere in the house.
  • I LOVE tone controls on the front, just not THESE tone controls. This Onkyo's front bass & treble control is HARSH.
  • The only thing I wish they would add to the app would be the ability to alter, base, treble and the A/B speaker selection.
Yamaha R-N803BL Hi-Fi Audio Component Receiver Black
  • The MusicCast app is very useful, easy to use and has plenty of functionality.
  • This receiver is nearly perfect. I use it primarily as connection to music radio streaming services for which it excels. Tidal and Spotify sound great.
  • A big surprise was the ability to view the results in the MusicCast app and then to tweak the settings if I desired, including changing subwoofer crossover point, speaker distances and things like that.
  • It set up nicely, the MusicCast app downloads easily and finds the product on my network (the device can connect wirelessly or wired to a network).
  • It looks decent. Remote works well but it feels very plasticky and cheap.

What customers say about "Connectivity"
Onkyo TX-8270 2 Channel Network Stereo Receiver with 4k HDMI
  • Build quality, consistent Wi-Fi connection, ample power and ease of use.
  • There are 4 HDMI ports for input from multiple sources. There's a USB in on the front of the unit that will play from my phone or a memory stick.
  • I bought the Onkyo TX-8270 because it had a built in Riaa and wifi, so that I could connect my turntable directly without getting a seperate preamp and listen to new stuff from youtube.
  • Good features and sound for the price, but sometimes drops WiFi and has to be re-added.
  • Bluetooth has bad reception with interrupts even at close distance.
Yamaha R-N803BL Hi-Fi Audio Component Receiver Black
  • I was used to Bluetooth speakers before, but this blows them away. I can control so many things with just my phone, it’s awesome.
  • The network connection process is supper easy. I am very happy and can recommend!
  • Airplay works a treat and the WiFi connection is strong when the supplied antenna is positioned properly.
  • Bluetooth does not work well at all. It stutters frequently and doesn’t sound that great. Wireless network performance is also mediocre.
  • The Bluetooth performance, while of good sound quality, sputters. It drops connectivity sporadically.
