Onkyo TX-NR509

David C., Newegg
10 October 2014
  • Pros: Nice receiver, but gets hot.
  • Cons: The receiver died after exactly 3 years. It was only used about once a month for an hour or two. Daily use would have sped up its end-of-life much sooner.

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.

Failed after just over a year.

Jeremiah G., Newegg
10 December 2012
  • 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.

Buyer Beware! Designed to fail?

Seth Greene, Amazon
27 September 2011
  • Summary: I purchased this unit (TX-NR509) in late March of 2011. It worked well until this past week, just over 2 years. It now cannot see any speakers connected (I'm guessing because none of the speaker indicators on the front panel light up) or connect to the net (local or global).

Sorry to Be The First Bad Review

Woodrow, Amazon
12 August 2011
  • Summary: Sorry to be the first to have a bad review. Please note that I have ordered a replacement unit as I believe this specific unit to be bad (at least I hope so). The unit I recieved from Amazon was in great shape, seemed ok, until I tried to connect any HDMI 1.4a source to it.

Defective

William D., Newegg
17 July 2011
  • Pros: Pandora worked great and was easy to set up, though a little tedious. I was also able to browse and stream music from my Windows 7 desktop using only my remote control, no set up needed due to DLNA support. Sound quality is good.
  • Cons: Can't stream pictures or video from my home computers via DLNA, only music. I didn't understand this distinction when I bought it. Though I'm not sure any recievers on the market have this capability right now, I wish it had been more clear. The real problem though is that it stopped converting a...

Dies after two years

Amazon Customer "sw4_books", Amazon
29 March 2014
  • Summary: Like the other reviewers here, I thought this was an excellent product. However, mine stopped working. So I went onto the Onkyo forums, to find it filled with people having the same problem: the sound chip on the HDMI board dies and the whole thing stops working. Everyone has the same symptoms.

  • Excerpt: Очень разочаровался в бренде ONKYO, в сервисе не ремонтируют, нет запчастей... Проблема у всех 509 с платами обработки...
  • Pros: Неплохой звук за свои деньги, как для кино так и для стерео, много полезных настроек.
  • Cons: Умер через 2 года :(
