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.

My Onkyo TX-DS575 receiver has worked flawlessly for 10 years and I expect it to keep working for years to come (unlike the several Sony products I've owned), but the TX-NR1008 had so many...

  • Summary: Loved it until the problems started. Like many others I have a unit that cycles thruogh all audio setups, the remote doesn't work, I have to unplug it to turn it off. Look up the av forum to see this is a recurring problem through many of Onkyo's models.
