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...
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.
Defective after 9 months, onkyo fixed it for free.

Summary: turns on by itself. then remote stops working, i have had the unit for 9 months when this started. like others have mentioned this is a great unit when it works, but now i have to turn it on manualy and change the volume. Update i went on Onkyo's website and they have this problem listed as a known issue, i called them and they sent me a box with shipping label to send my unit in to get fixed. i shipped this out on a Thursday and received it back the very next Thursday.
Hard to put into words how great this reciever is for the home theatre experience.

Summary: crisp, mind-blowing reciever, The human ear is not capable of noticing any distortion at even the highest volume. EXC purchace. Played the Movie Black Hawk Down as first movie. incredible. Review needs more stars!
Summary: I highly recommend Onyko 3008, this was an upgrade for me from their 508. I had tried 2 other surround sound systems over the years and none really was good, so when I dicided to give one last try, chose Onyko and their 508 was great, I wanted to try 3-D sound and the 3008 is SPECTACULAR!!!
Summary: This onkyo TX-NR3008 is the best receiver I've bought in 35 years, it was fun to set up and easy to do all the step by step set-ups. From start to finish it took only 2 1/2 hours. I'm like a kid in a candy store every day I come home, I'll spend a "few' hours play'n with it,and the fun just keeps on coming and so does the sound!!! Just thought you'd like to know.
Summary: Pity that the price is now three or four hundred more than Amazon had it listed at a month or so ago, as this receiver is phenomenal. To replace my venerable STR DB830 in the Mike Cave I tested out the Onkyo RC230 (now in bedroom) and the Onkyo 808 (now in living room) before settling on this beast.
