BAD...BAD...Experience With Service Net.

Holtz T., Newegg
8 October 2015
  • Pros: N//A
  • Cons: The receiver is an excellent product and it has worked fine until last month. I contacted ServiceNet for the repair and they told me it was a depo item. I had to ship it to United Radio in NY and they email me stating "Is your unit under warranty". My response was "I thought you guys were working...

Todd C., Newegg
26 November 2014
  • Pros: Was very good while it worked.
  • Cons: This is the second Onkyo receiver to fail (HDMI audio fails to start) in 3 years. I would stay away from Onkyo. This one failed precisely 3 weeks afer my 2 year waranty expired.

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
7 March 2014
  • 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.

Scooter, Amazon
23 February 2014
  • 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.

No regrets - Still a good purchase 2 years later

Dan C., Newegg
10 January 2014
  • Summary: The Onkyo remote app (which can control this receiver) has gotten much better with the second version. It is easier to navigate the streaming music options as well as controlling zone2 and zone 3 sources.
  • Pros: The audio quality of this amplifier is quite outstanding. The receiver is pretty heavy too, weighing in at a about 40 pounds. The front high/wide speakers are not necessary but worth setting up if you have the room and extra speakers to give it a try. Some movies and music really do benefit from ...
  • Cons: The remote control can be confusing to use at times since a single button may serve multiple functions depending on what you are currently doing with the receiver. It also is not fully back lit, so trying to use it in a dark room while watching a movie is about impossible. Using the ipod dock (po...

ONKYO has problem

Ken M., Newegg
8 January 2014
  • Summary: Overall quality is a real issue. ONKYO was lauded at one time for high quality products. Can ONKYO still make a product that runs flawlessly for 10 years?
  • Pros: I reviewed what I wrote in September 2011 and still feel that this is a great Network receiver. We are very happy with the machine. Excellent Integration of all components with a lot of possible power to the loudspeakers
  • Cons: The supplied remote is the weakest part of the package. ONKYO has some known issues with this receiver. I had some initial issues yet when known problems arose ONKYO chose not to inform customers. Consequently the unit has failed and I am slightly out of the 2 year warranty period. I bought exten...

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.
