            Comments about Onkyo HT-RC270 AV Home Theater Receiver:

            I'm hardly using all of the features of this receiver, but I am extremely pleased with it. I added the Onkyo HD radio adapter and iPod/iPhone dock, which connect through the Onkyo universal port, which gives me control over them from the remote. I was very happy to see that this unit includes a microphone for optimizing the sound to the room and listening positions.

            Updated from 4 year-old Onkyo. Network connection is great! Plays music collection on Windows Home Server, connects to Rhapsody, Pandora, Slacker, and hundreds of internet stations. Works well except for Rhapsody which keeps losing connection. Pandora and Slacker are excellent and play well. On screen display is much improved from older models. Other than Rhapsody problem, receiver does all as advertised. [...] Very happy with purchase.
