Sounds Great When It Works

J. Main, Amazon
26 June 2015
  • Summary: Of the 10 receivers I've owned over the decades, this is the best one for controlling sound (and video in this case). But, there are some of these models that have a known deficiency with the power module that could have disastrous consequences.

Don't buy Onkyo - issues out of box & horrible support

Michelle Rutigliano, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought an Onkyo TX-NR3008, it worked for about 2hrs then went into Standby mode and I couldn't do anything with it. Screen went blank, no audio, no video, no response at all except a Standby light on top left.

Same problem as others

Cookie Monster, Amazon
26 February 2012
  • Summary: Just wanted to add my info as well to the failures reported by others. Receiver is great when it works but after 9 months, my unit also freezes, gets stuck in cbl/sat mode and becomes unresponsive. This is after ensuring that I have adequate cooling (added an USB fan as well).

If you can avoid, avoid Onkyo

Tushar Tripathi, Amazon
26 February 2012
  • 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.

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

Cycle Guy, Amazon
25 February 2012
  • 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.

So unreliable and so poorly supported they should be sued.

Amazon Customer, Amazon
25 February 2012
  • Summary: One of the worlds most expensive doorstops. Do not by an onkyo product unless you expect to replace it out of pocket after a year.
