Summary: Horrible!! ..I bought this in 2012 so my warranty is void. Here's the thing. I heard complaints about the Tx series and I thought the unit caught a virus through all the info read on the net. It's just a matter of time til that happens I taught so Inever hooks this system up to the net.
Summary: Well, I honestly wish I wasn't bashing this product. I bought it in a departure from 2 Denon Receivers that I have had forever. The first lasted me literally 20 years and the sound was incredible.
Summary: As others have written I will do the same. I really like Onkyo - this was my second. I upgraded 3 years ago with high hopes; in fact I was impressed and enjoyed the NR709. Then about 2 weeks ago, I noticed the audio was taking a few extra seconds to click in, then finally nothing.
Summary: More problems with this unit in 2 years (sound goes out - like no sound from any source - no indication of connected speakers; constant 'second long 'flicker' where sound and picture 'disappear' for a second while watching DVD's or movies), than in 20 years with my old Onkyo unit (TXSV70PRO).
Summary: My unit also failed shortly after warranty period was over. Same HDMI sound problem as of many others who are complaining in various forums. I should have taken my time to do a proper research on these reported problems.
Summary: Got this receiver almost 22.5 months ago. I had no issues or complaints with it, until about 2 weeks ago when all of sudden there was no audio output. I called the company, who had me take it to the nearest repair shop (1.5 hr drive round trip -with no traffic).
Summary: Well be aware, mine just broke just after 2 years. There is reason these are cheap. Turns on, but no music on either speaker nor headphones not even from tuner. Warranty just expired, build in obsolescence I assume.
Summary: This is one of the waste product. HDMI handshake fails repeatedly. I live in NJ and luckily there is service center in 50 miles . There was fire in receiver for TWICE and was repaired. As soon as it was returned to me HDMI is never recognized.
Summary: Was so happy to purchase the TX-NR709. It lasted me about 1.5 years (I guess I should be thankful). Mysteriously, it decided to no longer play sound. It passes through sound to my TV speakers but won't play through the system. Restored factory settings and Audyssey won't run. It tells me to wait.
