  • 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.
