junk

Jeffery H., Newegg
16 February 2015
  • Pros: worked for about a year
  • Cons: horrible OSD that would only work once in awhile. network chip went out fairly early but still had sound. no sound no and is under warranty, they only offer a $100 trade in, so i have to pay the difference and take another chance on them as a company. no thanks.

Died after 2 1/2 years:bad quality

Yannick S., Newegg
15 September 2014
  • Summary: I have a second 7.2 av chives from Onkyo which has an excellent sound and very good features but I have lost the second zone audio and the rear channels....I guess I will not buy another Onkyo before a long time...
  • Pros: Lots of features for a decent price, good sound, and sound calibration.
  • Cons: It's quite shameful that a company like this is neglecting quality..my brother and I both had two mini systems from Onkyo in Europe that lasted more than ten years, but that was more than 20 years ago....when it was time to replace my ten years old Yamaha receiver that did not support HD TV I tho...

Onkyo junk

Michael C., Newegg
5 September 2014
  • Summary: I have owned Onkyo products in the past and enjoyed them. This purchase was a bitter disappointment, especially when I started investigating this issue and found that there are many, many others like me whose receiver just QUIT suddenly.
  • Pros: Under warranty...great. Out of warranty...a pretty paperweight.
  • Cons: No audio as soon as it was out of warranty. Pathetic. It appears this is a systemic problem with Onkyo. I will avoid this manufacturer in the future. Their best days are behind them.

Misery loves company.

  • Summary: Just joining the crowd. I bought this receiver in January of 2012 to replace a TX-NR500 which lost it's back speaker capability, no big deal since that receiver didn't have HDMI capability. The sound quality was very good with the Bose speakers I own.

Two Years Then PFFFFTTT!

William H. Schulze, Amazon

  • Summary: I purchased one of these in November of 2011. It was priced well with many nice features. I tried to watch a movie recently and got no sound, nothing. I tried all of the other components I had hooked up to it - same thing.
