No, No, and NO

Terry S., Newegg
2 January 2015
  • Summary: I am flabbergasted with this poor quality product and will NEVER by Onkyo again......
  • Pros: Good sound for the price (when it works)
  • Cons: Mine went out a week before the warranty was up due to bad capacitors on the HDMI board. It was fixed under warranty and guess what..... Yep less than a year later it is starting to go out AGAIN. Same symptoms - sound periodically goes out and comes back by itself. Eventually it fails completely

Garbage

Daniel Senecoff, Amazon
10 February 2013
  • Summary: First one didn't work and was returned for replacement. About one year of light use, and it won't stay on. It just turns off after a few seconds. It usually stays on after about 6-10 re-starts. I expect it will fail completely if I continue to use it, but I will replace it at my expense.

Owned another Onkyo for many years. I wanted to upgrade

Martha Beard Grant, Amazon
3 February 2013
  • Summary: It never worked right from the the 1st day. I had to turn it on twice every time. It finally went off for good. I'm not happy I had to send it back on my dime or should I say close to $20. I have yet to hear a word from them. It's been a month.

  • Summary: Just read the manual and adjust your connections and peripherals used to the features available (well it helps to read the manual before ordering a receiver...). but at 100 USD for a receiver with these features...
  • Pros: I own one of those for 3 years and just had the opportunity to order another for just under $100, shipped... can't beat that, as (if you read and try to understand the words printed in the manual), it can be set up to work perfectly!!! I use it for an HDMI switch, component video switch (two sepa...
  • Cons: I could not use it to control a multimedia streamer. but that could be understood from reading the manual... can't win them all!

Perfect Receiver

RBarr, Amazon
28 June 2012
  • Summary: I purchased this receiver about 3 months ago. It is everything and more that I was hoping for. The set-up instructions were easy to read and understand. The devices were also easy to connect. I read some reviews about the receiver only having 65 watts per channel x 5 channels.
