Nothing but problems.

J. Dean, Amazon
28 November 2011
  • Summary: I purchased the TX-NR1008 Onkyo receiver about seven months ago on Amazon. After two months the receiver started turning on and off continuously, so the warranty covered getting it fixed (which was a huge hassle and took a month).

Great Receiver - but not dependable

E. T. Hildebrand, Amazon

  • Summary: I purchased this receiver in February, 2011 as an upgrade to my older Onkyo. I was very impressed with the sound and operational abilities of this receiver: it exceeded all my expectations.... until April when it developed problems.

Nice Receiver

Rodney J., Newegg
15 August 2011
  • Summary: I dropped one egg because my previous Onkyo (TX-DS797) receiver just up and died one day, prompting me to look for a new receiver. The TX-DS797 was about 5 years old. One day I turned it on to watch a movie and no sound came out of it. Not cost effective to repair.
  • Pros: > Got this at a really, really good price from Newegg. > Awesome sound quality. > Solid Build, components seem high quality. > All features function as they should, so far so good. > Internet radio is cool. > HDMI Switching works fine. > 3D ready. > DLNA. > 9.2 Channels
  • Cons: > My biggest issue - Why no back-light on the remote control? I have to use a flashlight. My previous Onkyo receiver had a back-light (TX-DS797). > Receiver must be powered on to switch inputs, which is a pain (especially in the dark) unless you use a Harmony Universal Remote with the steps alrea...

Awesome when working

Edward S., Newegg
21 July 2011
  • Summary: Buy the extended warranty
  • Pros: The sound from this receiver is great. The construction and quality of parts is also very impressive. I purchased a newer Onkyo HTRC-360 to put in my HT while the 1008 was in for repairs (more on that below) and the difference in sound is night and day different. The 1008 blows it away in ever as...
  • Cons: Here comes the bad. After about 2-3 months of ownership, the receiver would start cycling through all of the listening modes which would make it unresposive and useless. Called Onkyo and they told me to take it to a service cetner. Take it to my local service cetner and they repair it. Get home a...

Big problem

Jose C., Newegg
18 July 2011
  • Summary: The person that answered my call said that they had been having that problem with this receiver. I feel I ended up with a lemon since my first call to them was less than 3 month from the time of purcahse and the problem was there almost the first week.
  • Pros: Lots of bells and wistles and many first
  • Cons: Back in 2009 i bought an onkyo 906 from Newegg great unit. two year latter I upgraded the TV to 3d and sure enough the receiver was not. Well I bought the onkyo 1008 since the first week the receiver would turn it self on, called onkyo and they ask me to disconect the hdmi and reconnect a differe...

I loved it until...it went flaky

Seymour, Amazon
5 July 2011
  • Summary: I bought this a few months ago on Amazon. I've been using it as a switch for all of my HDMI sources (haven't used any Non-HDMI) and I use both HDMI outs (to two TVs in adjacent rooms). It was a little tricky getting the 2 HDMI outs to work, but I got that working.

Using it for about a month now

FF_Freak, Amazon
18 June 2011
  • Summary: I love this unit so far, only 2 main downfalls for me. 1.) Within that month one of the RCA inputs stopped functioning. Furthermore, Onkyo claimed ANY authorized dealer on their website can warranty repair, except all of them are refusing because I didn't buy from them???

Great Receiver for the Price

Gary, Amazon
15 February 2011
  • Summary: I bought this receiver for $799 on Amazon.com. It is in the upper line of Onkyo's receivers and for this price I did not see any other units that could come close in terms of quality, sound, and features.
