Dead after using for a few weeks.

HonestAbe "CAdreamin", Amazon
14 May 2013
  • Summary: It's quite unfortunate when a good brand takes a truly bad turn. I've decided to purchase this mostly due to Onkyo's reputation of having great reliable receiver, but I really should have read more reviews of their other similar products.

Vyxxen, Amazon

  • Summary: JANUARY 2013 UPDATE: DO NOT BUY ONKYO. My receiver has stopped working again, just a year after warranty repair by an authorized Onkyo service center for what is a known issue with this model (it just stops producing sound one day).

When Warranty period ends - watch out

Keogh, Amazon
5 April 2010
  • Summary: Receiver's sound Amplifier burned out in a planned obsolesence period of warranty + one month. In the state of Colorado, there is one certified Onkyo tech who wanted 3 months and more $$$ to fix it than I originally paid. Looking online, the blown amp is exceedingly common for this unit.

Exploding Onkyo Receiver

TLite, Amazon
1 February 2010
  • Summary: Well, this might have been the best sounding receiver of all time, but I never found out. I spent a good hour setting this thing up, running wires through the wall, etc. I turned it on and was working on the system setup on the (very cool) receiver menu.
