Summary: This is an Onkyo problem and not just with this model.
Pros: good sound when it works
Cons: First of all this is not Neweggs problem. Had I known about the sound issue I would not have brought this receiver,the sound slowly takes longer and longer to come on and the network connection quit working and no sound at all now.
Summary: I bought this receiver a little over 2 years ago. It worked great when I first started using it and we've been happy for about 2 years. Then, randomly, the sound would drop off in the middle of a movie. We would turn the power off for a minute then turn it back on and everything would be fine.
Summary: I had a Pioneer for nearly 20 years and it finally succumbed to too many F1 races and heavy metal. I had high hopes for this integrated piece of sophisticated technology...only to be disappointed...the thing hasn't even lasted a year.
Pros: Excellent performance all round. Versatile. Plenty of inputs and outputs. Plugs into the network for internet radio. No magnetic phono input - seems only low end or high end receivers have them - but we have a preamp which does the job nicely.
Cons: Limited control over EQ, but this turns out not to have been much of an issue. (Con and Pro) After a little over 2 years, the sound went yesterday.

Summary: Bought an Onkyo in 1984. Still works, but not for home theatre requirements. The company has changed. Based on my research trying to salvage this unit, it's apparent Onkyo ain't what it used to be.
Pros: It worked. Until it didn't
Cons: Archaic onscreen menus. Not user friendly. Warranty is for 2 years. Died at 28 months.

Summary: to most of you that have issues with this onkyo,, maybe, just maybe you all need to call onkyo and have them talk you through the systems main re-set up procedure. ours quit just under 2 years old, i was pissed and confused because like you i've always heard great things about onkyo, .
Summary: Fool me once, shame on me. Fool me twice... This was the second Onkyo unit I have owned in which the HDMI circuit burned out pretty soon after purchase. Very annoying. The sound quality was excellent, and still is for everything except HDMI. My advice: buy a comparably price Yamaha.
