Onkyo TX-NR 807 A/V receiver - any good ?

I am considering purchase of an Onkyo NR 807 receiver amplifier. Does anyone have experience of this ? Reliability wise. Also magazine review describes sound as "unsubtle". But i'm not sure what they mean by that or did the Reviewer just not get his "freebies". Spec looks good on... show more I am considering purchase of an Onkyo NR 807 receiver amplifier.

or did the Reviewer just not get his "freebies".

Spec looks good on paper.
Update: Thks for answers so far, I have read reviews and specs. just trying to decipher the reviewers comments, it seems upfront sound might be due to THX, which can be switched out for music & CDs, i think.

Nearest Yamaha model has known reliability problem. Just checking if anybody had probs with Onkyo.
