Summary: Purchased my unit fall of 2010, no issues until 4 months ago...as expected, my turn to experience the no sound issue. At first, I was able to turn off and turn on the unit with success on sound returning. That worked 2-3x, but now that doesn't work either.

Summary: I own two Onkyo receivers, a TX-SR706, I bought in 2007 which I now use in my office to drive my older 5.1 system and a TX-NR1008 that I bought in February of 2011 which I have in my living room driving my home theater.
Onkyo products are "lemons", others reporting the same thing

Summary: Installed and ran fine until -- bang -- no sound. Checked all sources, and found same thing. Checked web, found many others with same problem. Called "support", and they said to send email. Emailed them three times, with no response at all.
Summary: I bought my 1008 in march of 2011. once it was al set up it worked fantastic and i couldn't have been happier. i was using a: 1)Direc tv hd dvr receiver 2) PS3 3)Mac Mini Computer and was controlling 3 fully independent zones.
Summary: I've owned this reciever for almost a year now, and except for the remote problem this receiver has been great. Onkyo service has been great and the repair was quick. This receiver has enough power for anyone's needs, and being able to play mucis through media player is a nice feature!
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).
