  • Summary: this is my second one that died after 2 years. I need zones and channels so i ended up going with a Sonos System in 2013.

It Died...

ZMan "Joe G.", Amazon

  • 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.

Receiver is just ehh to me.

  • 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. The monitor out is hooked up to the TV (obviously).

  • Summary: Be warned when purchasing an Onkyo unit that you will have hassles if you need to go through their support department. I purchased a unit this past weekend and it was missing the remote. I followed their support process and here are some things to note: 1) I sent a support query about the missing remote. The query included the location and time/date of purchase as well as the serial number (their form requires it).

Great features & sound, but serious quality/support issues.

Nicholas E. Johansen, Amazon

  • 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 Sony STRDG820 7.1 Audio Video Receiver - Black , even with the same pair of cheap Sony SS-B3000 speakers. The sound was crisp and the definition was unlike anything I'd ever heard.

Appalling mismatch - speaker zones - analog only?

D. Damer "difficult to please", Amazon

  • 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. Most importantly, zone 2 and 3 are only available for analog input sources (even the tuner is not available for output to those speakers.

Zones 2 and 3 do not work like I thought they would. EDITED: BROKEN

Amazon Customer, Amazon
21 February 2010
  • 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. That makes sense because you're now powering two speakers in a separate room so you drop two speakers in the main room (7 to 5). If you activate zones 2 and 3, then the main room drops from 5.1 to 3.1.
