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).
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.
