Summary: This is the third Onkyo that has stopped working in the last three years. I spent almost $1,500 on Three Onkyos and the HDMI switch failed on all three. Onkyo will not return my phone calls or answer my emails. I will never again buy an Onkyo product.
Summary: After purchasing multiple Onkyo receivers from $450 to $750 over the past two plus years for multiple locations, a pattern has become clear. The audio components are not reliable. We have had audio problems with three out of five Onkyo receivers.
Summary: Folks, a friendly advice that will save you money and time. NEVER BUY any ONKYO product. Their service and brand value is almost zero. I bought N709 for my Synergy F30 set and Onkyo has a global HDMI board problem on ALL their A/V receivers (manufactured 2009-2013) leading to global recall!!!!
Summary: Bought a refurb, bad move. Moving up from an older Onkyo 609 which was fine but less wattage and features. Gave that one away for Christmas and now I am stuck with NO receiver! This was great for 3 weeks of light use and then the display started to go first and finally last Sunday, just in time for...
Make sure you have a local repair facility because you will need it. Look at 2011 808 model reviews Overpriced junk!

Summary: Don't waste your money. Go to local bb and purchase new Sony model 840 or 1040 with ext warranty. Onkyo will rip you off and ordering online means shipping hassles & costs. Onks are designed to break after warranty expires. Don't be a victim!
Summary: I have owned3 Onkyo receivers. Just picked the second one up from authorized repair center. It failed out of warranty and costs more to fix than a better quality Denon costs new!! Dont waste money on Onkyo, great marketing but poor build quality.
