Always needs repairs.

Wendy, Amazon

  • Summary: I've had this stereo for over 2 years now and I've had multiple problems with it. First the video stopped working and I had to spend $100 to ship it in for a warranty repair, a new HDMI board. Then the TV audio stopped working and it is no longer in warranty. So, I have a very expensive stereo just sitting here because I don't want to spend another $100 to send it in, plus repair costs.

More than 3 years and mine is still going strong!

James Johnson, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought my TX-NR3008 in January 2011 right here from Amazon.com, today is March 23rd 2014 and my Onkyo is still going strong! I upgraded from an Onkyo TX-SR805 which was also purchased right here at Amazon. BTW I sold that fantastic receiver for dang near as much as I paid for it. Anyhow my 3008 is now over 3 years old and it gets used every single day because my TV does not have speakers so the Onkyo does it all I also have over 700 blu-rays so the Onkyo has plenty to...

Good receiver but bad durability

BattleGnome, Amazon

  • Summary: Mine just died last night after 2 years + 1 month. Based on the reviews I see here, this is a common problem. The sound quality and feature set was definitely good for the price. It sounded amazing.

Poor Quality

  • Summary: Worked great for two years and four months then no sound. It appears , from my internet searches, that this is an ongoing problem with Onkyo receivers.

2 Years and counting ...

J. Richards, Amazon

  • Summary: Since I am late to the party, I will not attempt to restate all the various raves and regrets with this unit. I have seen it all. Amazing, massive monster with awesome features and a couple of devastating defects. The good news is that, a bit less than 1 year ago, when I experienced the well-documented problems, I contacted an authorized repair shop and got the thing repaired in a day by a guy who had seen it all before, and had all the parts on hand. I got lucky.

No SOUND and No speaker indicators - 12 days after warranty expires!

Cycle Guy, Amazon
16 January 2013
  • Summary: Absolute piece of junk. Do not buy Onkyo as they put the absolute worst quality components in their receivers. I have a 12 year old Denon without all the moden inputs and features but it still works like a charm. The Onkyo has all the bells and whistles but doesn't work. 12 days out of warranty and the company will not do anything for me even though the problem is well documented and well known.

Still Running Great !

Rainer Rocks, Amazon

  • Summary: I purchased this AVR on January 21, 2011 and figured I drop in with a simple update and so far all is well. It's still working like a horse with no problems. I know some people had problems becasue I read about them on AVS Forum while doing my research. I did have the clicking sounds but after reading up on how to fix it (AVR Settings) all is well now.

Still works fine after 16 months. (Update - broke at 25 months.)

Gregory Lee "Greg", Amazon

  • Summary: I'm pleased with this AVR, and it's been completely dependable for me, after being kept on 24/7 since I got it at the beginning of 2011. I've got it driving 9 Axiom speakers plus several subwoofers -- I settled on front height and front wide speakers (at the expense of losing back surround). Sound is very good, and the automatic calibration was straightforward.

Malfunctioning after less than a year after purchase

P. Bendre, Amazon
26 March 2012
  • Summary: I purchased TX NR-3008 from Amazon in Feb 2011. The receiver worked fine for about a year. Then the malfunctioning started. It would randomly keep clicking and switch the Listening Modes for no reason. Then on other occasions, it would display Odessey EQ screen as if a microphone was connected for EQ set up , when there was none. So basically, made it impossible to use the product. I contacted Onkyo and they asked me to ship to a dealer / service facility on West Coast.

If you can avoid, avoid Onkyo

Tushar Tripathi "TMT", Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this AVR in Sep 2011, did not use it till Dec. I started using it around the end of the year. It was a great experience. I was so happy that I bought it, upgrade firmware, Audyssey setup was a charm, iPad app was useful, DNLA made sharing so easy. Within few days it started behaving strangely, it started randomly changing music modes, and after playing for few hours it would just cut off all the speakers after a loud electrical discharge through the speaker, it...
