A GOOD COMPANY GONE BAD

woods0527, Ebay
5 September 2014
  • Summary: Hi, So far I've bought 2 809's and they both have failed with the same problem, no HDMI output video. I was directed to a forum for Onkyo and found that a lot of people have been having the same problem.

DO NOT BUY FROM ONKYO. EVER. Should be ZERO stars.

I. Ubiles, Amazon
4 April 2014
  • Summary: Bought this unit in December 2011, and just recently (only 4 months out of warranty), the unit has no sound (radio, Blu-Ray - nothing). It is well documented all over the internet NOT ONLY that the HDMI board is faulty because it lacks proper cooling, but that even if Onkyo replaces the HDMI unit,...

Less than two years with very mild use and no audio

Roger Carlson, Amazon

  • Summary: I have had this unit for less than two years and I have no audio. The unit is under warranty so I will modify the star rating up if everything works out. Prior to this little debacle it was the best receiver I have ever owned in my short 44 year existence. We will see...

Worked great unti warranty expired.

  • Summary: I had this unit for 2 years 4 months and the HDMI board failed. This model has a long history of failures just after the 2 years of use. Onkyo will not address the problem on a global basis. Had an older Onkyo that failed after a few years for a component failure that was well known to Onkyo.

  • Summary: Really enjoy this receiver after having established familiarity with the operation and menus. I have been into pro audio and Hifi for 45 years and have owned many receivers. I really enjoy the network capability although the apps are static and probably won't ever be upgraded.

Works well at first, but it WILL FAIL permaturely

Melissa Ballengee, Amazon
6 January 2014
  • Summary: I used to love Onkyo as I felt like I was getting such a good bang for my buck since they routinely sell well under MSRP and well under the price of comparable competitor models, but I have now learned the hard way that you truly get what you pay for.

Great bang for the buck

Clint Moyer, Amazon

  • Summary: I have all my music stored on Network Attached Storage as FLACs which stream thru my Onkyo TX-NR809 just fine. The free Onkyo iOS and Android apps are worth the price if somewhat barebones.

A mixed bag

Wayne, Amazon
3 August 2013
  • Summary: Since the time that this came out, Onkyo has come out with several newer generations. In some ways, the features have improved, but in many ways they haven't. You can go to the Onkyo website to compare multiple models to see how the features compare to something like the newer 828 model.

  • Summary: I have an Onkyo that is over 20 years old. I purchased a Yamaha HTR 6080 at the time of my purchase it was a great bargain for a very well designed receiver that is equipped with state of the art features.
