Default Speaker suggestions for Onkyo tx-sr702, and small problem!!

Hi , I recently purchased the onkyo tx-sr702 . I am looking to buy a new 7.1 speaker set up. Does anyone have this reciever and what speakers have they tested with it?? I will be going to test speakers for it and just want an idea of what combo's seem to work well with this reciever.

P.S. I have my hi def cable box hooked up through it and when I change channels (every 5 or 6 channels) the reciever clicks like it is switching to another video output (1,2 or3) and I lose the pic for a second , then it come back on. Really annoying !! I don't want to direct connect my cable to the tv but it seems that this is the only solution. Is my reciever defective or does anyone else have this problem??? Much Thanks

When you change source then it require your Onkyo to process the signal it's currently getting. It must then deliver the signal base on the preset you have set up. Question are your running component video out of HD D* into Onkyo out to TV? If so there will be a delay. What type of TV are you using I have a DLP and it take a second or two when chaning form HD to SD. I am running HD D* video via HDMI to TV. I run sound out by optical cable HD BOX into the Yamha. I belive you should feed the video direct to you TV after all it ought to have there better tecnology for processing that signal. Let your AVR handle the sound that it's strength.

I encounter the same thing with my Yamaha when I go from a HD channel to SD channel and yes the screen does goes blank while the TV process the different signal.
As far as speaker your on your own there. There so many and it just so hard to find one that stand head and shoulder above another. Some people swear Bose are the best some hate them. Some people spend thousands on a set of speaker and others a few hundred both happy with there speaker. I feel you shop with a budget you stick to it. Look around do not buy the first speaker you listen to. Go to you high end store and listen to there stock using this as your base line. So when you go to BB,CC etc there a way for you to identify what is ideal for you, and please get speaker that fit the room size bigger is not always better.

I bought in ceiling Klipsch speakers and a Onkyo 702 and had them professionally installed. The installer told me they never run the video thru the receiver. It is just another connection point that is not required. They ran my video from my dish 811 receiver directly to the TV.

You have Klipsch speakers with an Onkyo receiver?

How do you like how they sound together? I have an Onkyo receiver with B&W 602 speakers in my game room, but with Klipsch I always figured that the brightness of Onkyo's receivers would be too much in the Highs for them to sound good together.

Default Klipsch speaker with Onkyo 702

The Klipsch in-ceiling speakers sound great to me....I am only connected with five speakers in a very small den. I didn't go to a audio store and compare the sound of different speakers. The A/V installation people I used sold and recommed these speakers. I installed in-ceiling speakers to appease my wife who didn't want speakers sitting all over the den.

How do you like the onkyo/B&W combo? What percent music/movie do you use?

I only use that Onkyo/B&W system for music in my game room. They sound great together, and I would imagine they would make a great combo for movies too, but that is not what I have using them for.

They make a good combo because the B&W are on the warm side for sound and the Onkyo tend to be on the bright side, so they compliment each other. IMO

I have 602 with Polk Audio speakers. Two speakers in the back are in-ceiling speakers. My setup is 5.1 for now. I have to set the rear speakers to large...the auto setup set them to small. They sound pretty to me right now.

Love the in-ceiling speakers. Everyone new to house looks around the house for the speakers when they hear the sound in the back.
