Summary: Worked well for 3 years and it died... Will be contacting Onkyo to see if they extend the warranty. Read several online forums and the problem I am experiencing with the sound is common on this unit.
Summary: I have had this receiver for 2 year now. I've been using it everyday as my entertainment hub. I have My PS3, and DirecTV receiver hooked up to it, and all audio and video runs through it at all times. My TV speakers are awe full so I always listen through the receiver and home theatre speakers.
Summary: I have been installing my new home theatre (5.1 plus an outside pair and a line out to another amp) for two weeks since receiving this Onkyo RC-180 receiver so now I can speak to the limitations of this unit.
Zones 2 and 3 do not work like I thought they would. EDITED: BROKEN

Summary: I reviewed the instruction manual before purchasing this because zone 2 and 3 audio are important features for me. I read the manual to say that you can have 7.1 in the main room. But if you activate zone 2, then the main room will drop down to 5.1.
Great features & sound, but serious quality/support issues.

Summary: The Onkyo HT-RC180 has lots of features, plenty of speaker connections, incredible sound and a sturdy, heavy case, all of which would suggest that this is a quality product. Indeed, upon initially opening up the box and setting it up, it blew away my , even with the same pair of cheap Sony SS-B3000...
