Summary: Product worked fine when I first got it...but 1 month after the warranty expired the primary zone stopped working. The support team seemed completely disinterested in helping me with it. Next time I'll buy from a different brand.
Summary: Initially it worked great and I liked it a lot. Shortly after the 2 year warranty expired the audio stopped working. Apparently this is a common problem with this model. That is way too early for something this expensive to die.
Summary: When you pay 300 some dollars on a gadget you expect it to last more than 5 years. But this junk, 2 weeks ago, failed on me after two years of use. No audit output. Tried to upgrade the firmware to fix it but now it just died completely without any video and audio outputs at all. Will I try another Onkyo.. hell no..
Summary: I've been a longtime fan of Pioneer and have had nothing but luck with those receivers, having a 5.11 surround sound deck for a total of 10 years. My old Pioneer deck lacked HDMI and I saw this one and after reading a lot of good reviews, jumped on it on sale for $299 back in November of 2011. First, the good. The sound, when paired with my JBL surround set, is actually really nice.
Summary: It worked well for all intents and purposes for two years. Occasionally I would get problems with sound or video not working, which I chalked up to HDMI issues. Earlier this month I couldn't sound to work at all. And it would freeze in NET and USB mode. I did factory reset and all suggested fixes. Network and Firmware Update are greyed out, and even optical sound doesn't work.
Summary: I am in the pro audio business, I kind of know what I am talking about so here you go: I have been a fan of Onkyo consumer equipment for a long time. I have owned several Onkyo receivers and was always impressed. Not this time. This receiver has problems with the audio cutting out. It will work fine for weeks on end then all of a sudden, just stop working, causing me literally hours of troubleshooting every time. I have replaced HDMI cables, devices, inputs, resets etc.
Summary: I bought this unit on 1 July 2011. The HDMI Board died 19 June 2013. So I was happy to find out that Onkyo does have a two year parts and labor warranty. Bad news it is your responsibility to get it to the nearest repair/service center. Then it gets even better as Onkyo does not readily stock the parts that are needed for repair by the service center. I was first told it would be two weeks to get the part. Then two weeks turned into two months.
Summary: When I first set up the Onkyo I was truly blown away. The quality of the sound was amazing. I bought the optional UBS wireless antenna and was able to stream music from the internet. I sent the TV cable signal directly to the amplifier and used the HDMI video out from the receiver-amplifier to the TV. I liked everything about this unit. However, within six months I had two separate failures of ports. First to go was the USB plug for the wireless antenna.
