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

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

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).
