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: 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: Another HDMI board failure here. Onkyo insists it isn't a widespread issue, but a quick Google search reveals the absurdity of that claim. To get it fixed I have to either drive an hour and a half or pay ridiculous shipping charges (it's heavy!).
Summary: Receiver shipped from Essex and was advertised as new but inspected due to damaged box. I purchased to go in a media room being built and I did not plug receiver up to test until 90 days after my purchase. The receiver flashes on and off.
Summary: I use my Onkyo 709 receiver very sparingly. The unit is 5 months old. Today is the second time there is no sound output. I had to do a system reset in order to solve the poblem last time. This time...I think I will purchase another brand of receiver and consign this Onkyo to the recycle bin.
Neither Onkyo nor Amazon will support this unit past the 1st 30 days.

Summary: This is the 2nd Onkyo unit I've purchased in the last few years. The 1st was the one that came with my HT-9100THX. That HTIB is a great unit with excellent 7.1 sound and plenty of input options to suit any home theater enthusiasts needs. That first receiver went bad after only 4 months in my home.
Summary: Had a pretty good experience with this receiver since it was purchased in January. Today however the HDMI video failed like so many others. Very disappointed especially considering the cost of this unit. Really hurts being outside of Amazon's return period AND being in the military overseas..
