Summary: Onkyo has well known quality problem. These receivers fail after the 2-year warranty. If you look at Onkyo ratings & feed back. here and throughout the web, you see the same thing over and over: We all loved our receiver, but it died after two years.
Do not buy, after 2 years of only partial play there is a defect and now sound- Out of warranty as well.

Summary: I have used this receiver in my bedroom, and only sparingly. After 26 months there was no sound, and of course out of warranty. There had also been issues logging onto the Internet as well, very unreliable.- I would not buy this unit, as it has been a costly mistake.
Summary: Still under warranty, so I've sent an e-mail to Onkyo support. We'll see how this goes. It gets two eggs because it worked fairly well up until it died.
Pros: Network connection Pandora Good sound Flexbile setup
Cons: No HDMI conversion, so if you connect a Wii via composite, it WILL NOT output through HDMI to your TV. You have to change both the receiver AND the TV's inputs to composite. Died after a little over a year.
Summary: Bought this a couple years ago now. Two days after installation the USB port stopped working making it unable to play music from my phone or other devices. Seems pathetic that such a simple feature would only work for a day. This was a big disappointment. I'd recommend buying a different brand.
Summary: Background: I wanted a home use 5.1 sound system for my living room. Wasn't looking for a high end system. Pros: Great receiver when it worked. Has a lot of options. Cons: At first it occasionally needed to be reset, because the screen would show static.
Summary: When it works it works - just as one would expect. Onkyo had a problem, however, with their HDMI cards in that they tended to fail after about two years and mine was no exception. Warranty expired, however, Onkyo repaired it using a "new and improved" HDMI card.
