Well just like many other reviews after 2 years and 8 months ...

GEORGE BOOTH, Amazon
23 September 2014
  • Summary: Well just like many other reviews after 2 years and 8 months the audio has completely failed. I still have video but with out audio it's now junk. I will not buy any onkyo products in the near future. I have bought many receivers in my time even one budget unit which lasted longer than this onkyo receiver. When turning the receiver on i would normally here a click then the sound would come on,but now the click isn't there and no sound.

Onkyo TX-NR709 Sound went out

jim fowler, Amazon
10 November 2013
  • Summary: I purchased my Onkyo TX-NR709 in June of 2011 and was very happy with it until the sound just comply went out on it. I was just 4 months out of warranty when I had to have the processor board replaced at a cost of nearly $400.00 after shipping and labor. I would have expected more out of a unit that cost $700.00 new. The repair cost nearly more than than it was worth and now I wait for one of the other problems others have sited to happen.

Onkyo TX-NR709 HDMI Failure

James L., Amazon
19 July 2012
  • Summary: I purchased the 709 in April. Had it about 2-weeks-worked fine. Turned it off one night, and then turned it on the next day, but alas no Video Output via HDMI output. Sound was OK. Turned unit off. Called tech support the next day. Tech support suggsted re-setting the unit. When I turned the unit ON, it worked just fine -- for about three weeks. Same issue--turned unit OFF one night when it was working fine. Turned it ON the next day, but again no video on HDMI output.

audio problem

Dennis, Amazon

  • Summary: System worked well for nearly two years. Audio card went bad even though the system was hardly used. Apparently the unit was overheating and sound came out for about 5 minutes and then "NO SOUND". I had an electronic repair person looking at the unit but he had a hard time isolating the actual component because no sound after about 5 minutes.

Nicht wirklich schlecht aber zu viele Mängel im Detail

Pseudonym "Pseudonym", Amazon

  • Summary: Es ist bereits eine Menge über den 709 geschrieben worden, deshalb fasse ich mich möglichst kurz: Anschluß, Inbetriebnahme und Firmwareupdate (über eine Stunde!!) verliefen problemlos. Auch die Bildausgabe über beide HDMI-Ausgänge (LCD-TV an Main, DLP-Beamer an Sub) funktionierte einwandfrei. Meiner subjektiven Einschätzung nach stechen folgende Punkte heraus. Im positiven Sinne: Die Bedienung anderer Geräte mit der Systemfernbedienung ist super einfach zu konfigurieren.

Heftige Unzulänglichkeiten, bspw HDMI 2 x Out funktioniert nicht ...

Evo, Amazon
16 January 2012
  • Summary: Habe mittlerweile zuviele Geräte in Betrieb (Blue Ray-Player, DVD-Rekorder, CD-Player, XBOX kinect, PS2 Singstar, IPhone, IPod, Tuner altes Tapedeck und als Ausgabe LED-TV und HDMI-Beamer, die sich nur noch durch ständiges Umstecken von Kabeln bspw. über meinen "normalen" Onkyo-Vollverstärker betreiben liessen. Schwierig ebenso auch BD's mal über TV oder über Beamer zu sehen.

MAIN und SUB out - kompliziert

HDW, Amazon
26 July 2011
  • Summary: Ein Hauptargument für mich, diesen Onkyo zu erwerben (und keine günstigere Variante) waren unter anderem die 2 HDMI Ausgänge. Vielleicht bin ich ja ein Einzelfall, aber ich schaue im Alltag TV (und Bluray) über einen Fernseher (und da will ich den Ton auch über diesen hören), bei etwas mehr Zeit und Laune über meinen Projektor und einer Leinwand, die im Wohnzimmer allerdings ganz woanders als der TV plaziert ist und die Lautsprecher somit ebenfalls.
