Have an opportunity to buy a TX-NR656 for $200 and I know nothing about recent AV models. I have been using and satisfied with two almost "ancient" surround receivers - Onkyo HTR-500 and Pioneer VSC-D811S. Is the Onkyo TX-NR656 a satisfactory and reliable AV surround platform to replace one of my aging receivers? Thanks

I got mine for £285 so I think $200 sounds reasonable

Coming in at under £150 I have to say that, yes it is a very good price. I'm not sure about the overall spec of the US version, but the EU version only has HDCP 2.2 support (and hence 4K) on 3 (if I remember correctly) of the HDMI inputs. And no HDR support. If this isn't an issue, then fill your boots.
