Nothing but problems.

  • 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).

I loved it until...it went flaky

Seymour, Amazon

  • 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.

  • Summary: Purchased the unit here on Dec 2010. Being a SW guy, kept up with Firmware upgrade, etc. Furthermore, the unit is very lightly used and is well placed. So a month ago, it starts acting up.

Unhappy with receiver

MinnesotaMomma, Amazon
22 November 2010
  • Summary: I purchased an Onkyo receiver in April, 2011. I also purchased an extended warranty and now in August I needed warranty repair service. Onkyo did refer me to a service dealer, but I need to get in contact with High Quality Electronics in order to have verification of warranty.

Onkyo products are "lemons", others reporting the same thing

P. William Bane, Amazon
22 November 2010
  • 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.
