Sound Goes Out

Anthony K., Newegg
22 July 2015
  • Pros: Works great when it works. The sound output goes out entirely for all channels. Even out of warranty Onkyo has recognized this issue is widespread. If your unit was shipped within a certain date you can still get it fixed for free. On their website there is a place to enter your part number to se...
  • Cons: Broke, but they fixed it

2year Warranty is 2 years

Mark R., Newegg
11 July 2014
  • Summary: I will be looking for a receiver that has a longer warranty from now on. I got the dreaded HDMI board problem and cannot find a replacement anywhere! (E) bay does offer repair or you can buy a bunch of "Non-Tested" ones there too
  • Pros: Great Sound Quality
  • Cons: 2 Years means 2 years. This receiver died 2 years and 2 months after my purchase Onkyo is now another way to spell **** - in my book

broke just after two years no video using hdmi passthrough

G B, Amazon
1 June 2014
  • Summary: Well the received worked well for the first two years. Then suddenly the picture went out on the tv. It appears the problem is the hdmi passthrough circuitry goes bad. Unfortunately now that I have researched this problem I have found this is a common problem with Onkyo Receivers.

Stopped working just outside of 2 year warranty

Erik R. Johnsen, Amazon
29 May 2014
  • Summary: ...and it never worked that great to begin with. There was a up to a 100ms lag that needed to be adjusted for HDMI inputs (which is fine for video, but not videogames). I then bought a Denon at about the same price and the sound quality and user interface are both much better then the Onkyo.

No Sound After Two Years

Amazon Customer "Cycle Newbie", Amazon
11 April 2014
  • Summary: Well, after 25 months, my sound went out just like the others. I have ordered the following capacitors to replace them myself for the HDMI board. This isn't acceptable and I won't be purchasing another Onkyo product anytime soon.

Adam F., Newegg
24 February 2014
  • Pros: Great specs
  • Cons: Just google TXNR609 model number and "no sound". Same thing happened to me 25 days outside of the 2 year warranty. Owned Pioneer everything up until this point and thought i'd give Onkyo a try. WIll never buy another product from Onkyo. One day it was working, next day no audio output from any ch...
