The new Onkyo 626 belongs to the 2013 line up which I believe has facilities like wifi, blue tooth, networking and phase bass matching ...these features shall make it a good sellar. These are the modern day needs and would help the user in every regard.
Always thought Onkyo ugly beasts. Some improvement?

I don't understand something...
In your unboxing video, you compared the 626 to the 515....why?
Isn't this the replacement for the rather troublesome 616???
Also, I presume the 525 is the replacement for the 515??
I suppose because What Hi Fi hasn't reviewed the 616. They have reviewed the 515:
My Home Cinema Pioneer KRP 500A, Yamaha RX-V1900, MA Radius R225HD LCR, R90HD rears, AW12 sub, Panasonic BD60, PS3, Boxee Box, Sky HD, Boxee Box, Logitech Harmony One, Logitech PS3 Adapter, Sonos ZP90
Bedroom Samsung UE32C6510, PS3 slim white, Apple TV, Sonos S5, Sonos ZP90, Audioengine 2, Oppo OPDV971H
Miscellaneous: Synology DS212J + 2 X WD Red 2TB drives, WD 1TB NAS, Sonos ZoneBridge, BT HH3 as modem & AirPort Extreme router
Yes, I have always wondered why the 616 was not reviewed...probably because it was useless.
But factually, the 626 IS the replacement for the 616, so showing the 515 based on a 'price-point' basis just because 616 was never reviewed doesn't sound quite right.
Don't you think, Big Boss?
think its more about price range,onkyo had moved models up the price range after the 609,now they seem to be shifting down again.

It wasn't meant to be a direct comparison, just for interest seeing as we had it in the building. And the 515 did come out for around £450 originally.
