Summary: I was happy until it stopped working. Known design flaw where the HDMI audio switching components fail, leaving you with a receiver that cannot produce any sound. Onkyo customer service will do nothing to help you, even though their design is at fault. I'll never buy Onkyo again. Marantz and other brands offer better reliability and better sound quality.
Summary: I have owned this receiver for just over a year now and was impressed. Now this unit failed and the research is showing a KNOWN issue with the HDMI BOARD. Onkyo needs to step up and take responsibility for this known problem. They fail all the time and cost $800+ to replace! STAY AWAY FROM THIS BRAND...
Summary: It is not every day that I dump an AV receiver in the trash, but that was the fate of the Onkyo NR3007 that I purchased from Amazon.com. This is already an old model hence the feedback may not reach most potential buyers of Onkyo products, but I strongly sugggest you google "onkyo no sound" or variations thereon to see the many dissatisfied customers who had QC experiences with this model.
Onkyo TX-NR3007 poor quality leading to short life span
25 January 2012
Summary: This unit smoked and went into standby mode. Onkyo quality is questionable. The build up of heat and poor design will shorten this units lifespand. The heat issue is well documented and as other use the unit I expect the reviews will begin to wane. Again, while the specs are impressive, its inability to stand the test of time puts this unit at the bottom of the list of 'must haves'.
Nice Receiver, Poor Quality Control, Poor Warranty Service
4 August 2010
Summary: Final update: The authorized repair shop claimed the parts they received from Onkyo the first time were damaged during shipping. Then I am told that the next shipment was defective. Onkyo claimed that their authorized service center was incompetent. Nevertheless, when I threatened them to go all the way to the company president, a new part was shipped the same day and it was installed properly and in 5 days the receiver was repaired and tested.
Summary: Wish I could give it zero stars. Known issue with no sound to speakers. Requires reset which may or may not work and causes loss of all memory settings. Sent for repair once and this problem continues. Update: Onkyo was kind enough to repair unit outside of the warranty period. Worked for 2 weeks until it started randomly clicking off again. What a Lemon!
Summary: Have had nothing but problems with this unit. It will suddenly "lose" configuration of the speakers and your unit just goes "dumb." The temporary fix is to "CTL-ALT-DEL" the unit by pressing the VCR and STANDBY button simultaneously which resets the machine to factory settings. That means you've lost all your speaker settings, equalizer settings, the connection paths from component to RCVR, the sound settings for each component, etc.
Summary: I made a update and onkyo dont power up never again. HDMI has really problems. I am very unhappy with this 3007 model. I don't recomain it, and the support service is really bad in europe. The sound is good.
Summary: Leider habe auch ich das Problem mit dem HDMI Board. Der Ton ist weg, Bild bleibt aber verfügbar. Nach etwa 2 1/2 Jahren ist Schluss mit lustig. Die Reparatur kostet etwa 200 Euro. Ich bin fertig mit Onkyo. Der Umstieg vom extrem reparaturanfälligen Harman Karton AVR 7000 hat sich nicht gelohnt.
