Decent features, typical limitations, HDMI problems

AudioHTIT, Amazon
3 August 2014
  • Summary: This receiver is discontinued so I'm just noting my experience. The unit worked pretty well and had lots of features, my biggest dig is that it would not forward digital sources to the Zone outputs (many AVRs have this problem, check out Emotiva processors if you need this feature).

No Sound After Extended Standby Mode as Reciever Ages (39 months in my case)

OSU2012Reviewer, Amazon

  • Summary: Onkyo has a great sounding product when it works, but it indeed has some reliability issues. I am a EE so it isn't like I am a novice with electrical engineering issues as I actually work in test engineering.

The rating for a non working product is 1-star

Alex, Amazon

  • Summary: Purchased this unit in 2010 November, so it is 3 years that I own it. Besides of having a complex setup to tune it to its user's habits, it produced a beautiful sound, but then suddenly speakers went dead. No sound coming out of speakers whatsoever.

  • Summary: This Onkyo very expensive receiver is an absolutely unreliable piece of crap. As a practical matter, given the role this unit plays in my home theatre, the lousy customer service of Onkyo, and the best-case estimate of how long it will take to get this thing fixed (the first time),I will have to...

Awesome AVR, when not in repair

MustangChief, Amazon

  • Summary: My 5008 lasted 20 months before having the same problems as everyone else. I had to send it in for repair. That was 3 months, 2 weeks ago. I still have an old Yamaha sitting where this 60 pound beast sat. The sound doesn't even come close to the Onkyo.

This does it all!

Henry Hillyard, Amazon

  • Summary: I use this as my surround sound system and as my music amp. I purchased this Onkyo as my all in one system, with a mind on high amps and later upgrades to the rest of my surround sound.

Awesome! when it works

Fire eater, Amazon
5 April 2013
  • Summary: I ordered the Onkyo tx nr5008 for my new dream home theater. Within 3 months the receiver began cycling through all of the listening modes with no sound at all. I called customer support and after jumping through all the required hoops I was told that my new "FLAG SHIP" receiver would have to go in...
