Onkyo TX-SR444: Isn't it hot?

This 2015 AV receiver is breaking the market. The TX-SR444 is still one of the sales leaders with many great reviews and dedicated fans. Is it really good and invincible in 2019? I put this AV receiver in a test to make sure it's actually good.

Check out our simple Onkyo TX-SR444 review to see if your boat floats and if you have a home cinema you've been dreaming for years. It was difficult to collect all relevant information and make it short.


The panels are made of iron matte panels with cold smoky black shades. The front panel also has black with green fluorescent characters. The button position is asymmetric.

Phone, microphone input is on the front as well as in game, movie and music listening modes. All buttons are conveniently and intuitively organized for easy finding and manipulation.


The Onkyo TX-SR444 specification is very attractive. You can enjoy FLAC, MP3, WAV, AAC and WMA audio formats. There is no third zone, but there is a dual zone feature.


AV receivers are not so energy efficient. The output power is 700W. The latest gadget with low power consumption is more convenient for your wallet.

Sound quality

The TX-SR444 has a variety of decoders. Dolby Surround, Dolby True HD, Dolby Atmos, Dolby Digital Plus, and DTS-HD Master Audio.


There is no Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and IEEE at all. Do you upset you? If you need connectivity, you should pay attention to some newer models. Did you mention there is no USB?


The setup is very simple. Follow the instructions on the display. The user manual is also very easy to understand.

The time is limited but the answer only took a day but I tried to contact the customer support team.


Since this model is not new, it is very inexpensive for the family. So if you are looking for something reliable but inexpensive, then this AV receiver is what you need. The company offers parts and labor costs for two years for all Onkyo TX-SR444. That means you don't have to worry about maintenance and service costs.

I can recommend it to most home theater users. Very easy to install and run. Easy to align, built-in decoder is amazing and versatile.
