Network connectivity horrible it will fail. Sound=OK but a epic fail on being a network connected home entertainment receiver.

  • Summary: WARNING! Before you buy an Onkyo do a Google search on "Onkyo loses network connection" and read. This problem is systemic with Onkyo. This is my second TX-NR717. After the first one kept failing on being able to be network connected I figured it may be a fluke and returned to Amazon (love Amazon) and got a replacement. This one has also now failed with similar failings as the first. I've been on the phone with Onkyo customer support at least six times over past year.

Weak

Steve Sisson, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this to replace a much older Onkyo TX-DS-777 which actually rocked. I have a wide range of systems set up in my house including Dennon, Pioneer, Yamaha and NAD, this by far the most disappointed I have ever been in a piece of audio equipment. I bought based on the Onkyo name and past experience to run my media center. Part of it may be that I am not tech savvy enough to take full advantage of it. That part has been a disaster.

Died after 1 month.

  • Summary: Would not power up after 1 months use. Hopefully Onkyo will honor the warranty. I still have to shell out money to FedEx it to the closest repair center 92 miles from my house. Disappointed in the most expensive receiver I ever bought.

Gets hot too fast and it shuts down after 2 or 3 hours of usage.

  • Summary: It burned out on me after one year usage, got hot too fast and went bad in less than a year of usage. For the price I paid this is the worst investment I have ever made in electronics. I now have to buy another receiver.

  • Summary: das gerät selber macht einen guten eindruck aber nach etwas Betriebszeit stellt mal schnell fest es ist nicht alles gold was glänzt riecht leicht nach verkohlter Elektronik wird sehr sehr heiß und das Internetradio hängt des öfteren nach dem mir schon die zweite davon durchgebrannt ist werde ich nun bei der nächsten Party mal schauen wie lange sie durch hält
