Summary: It worked fine for 2 years. I bought it in Sep 09. In Jan 12, receiver stopped working& and now has no visual. I have to plug in directly from cable box to tv. it runs very hot so it may be something to do with it. Oh well, I guss I have to replace it..but won't buy Onkyo again.
Summary: Purchased this late 2009 after extensive research on Amazon and other sites. For the most part I have been happy up until today with the following exceptions. As you probably read in other reviews this unit heats up like an oven.
Summary: Worked great just long enough for me to not be able to return to amazon. Started overheating and shuts off. Home fan blowing on it keeps it cool. now have to deal with onkyo to fix it or replace. hope it doesnt go like reviews I've been reading
Cons: The HDMI never works from the TV to the Satellite receiver the first time, sometimes I have to turn the TV on and off several times in order for it to pick up the sound and terrible support from ONKYO. I would not buy this receiver again.
Summary: I bought this receiver because it had all the features I was looking for, especially the HDMI pass through and upscaling. It was great for the first couple of weeks. However, it began putting red halos around all the dark areas on screen.
Summary: I was optimistic about this receiver. I recently upgraded to digital cable and purchased a Tivo Premiere and Blu-Ray player. After hooking up the receiver, HDMI connections only work with my Xbox 360. Neither the Tivo Premiere or Samsung Blue-Ray player will work with HDMI.
Great Product Performance - HORRIBLE customer service, questionable product quality

Summary: I really fell in love with this receiver over the 6 weeks that I used it. But my experience with it just stopping working for no apparent reason, little to no troubleshooting help online at onkyo's site, and the horribly long waiting time (93 minutes - SERIOUSLY?
Pros: Very good product, especially considering its price point. Works very well with a 7.1 surround sound setup, blu-ray player, xbox 360 and samsung plasma. Power output is great. 2EQ auddessy setup was quick and easy and seems to do a good job of setting up levels based on room environment.
Cons: Product quality may be questionable - Receiver is no longer functional after 1.5 months of use. My experience with customer service has been HORRIBLE. I waited on the phone for... get this... 1 hour and 33 minutes before I got someone on the phone. Once I finally got someone, they couldn't have s...
Summary: Not the fault of Newegg, thay are great. This is a problem with Onkyo and there products. Check for local repair when you by any product that you don't want to be without for any extended time. Unless there policy changes, this is my last Onkyo purchase.
Pros: Nice Audio \ Video when it works.
Cons: Long story short, vertical lines started showing up on the screen. Needs to be fixed under warranty, no local repair in the Portland Or. Area. They want me to send it to Denver or Seattle at my cost!. And who knows how long I would be without my AV receiver. Most Major Brands can be fixed locally
Summary: Ersteinmal vorweg der Verstärker macht in vielen Gebieten einen wirklich sehr guten Eindruck und klingt an sich auch ganz gut, die Einmessung produziert auch bei nicht optimalen Boxen pro Box ein brauchbares Klangbild, die Menge der Funktionen und die Anschlussmöglichkeiten sind für den Preis...
