Summary: Had a Pioneer receiver for 7yrs up to getting the Onkyo due to new players and cable box's and tv's with hdmi connections switched, Pioneer still works Onkyo TX-SR707 doesn't 3 1/2 yrs milked it for as long as I could have to buy new now
Pros: Worked right out of the box for about a 2 years
Cons: After 2 years, having continual sound output issues using HDMI only and after 3 1/2 years reset no longer works No Sound, Found lots of forums stating same issues with this same model TX-SR707
Summary: WILL MAKE THIS SHORT AND SWEET. ALL ONKYO AV RECEIVERS HAVE FAULTY HDMI BOARDS AND GO OUT IN JUST OVER TWO YEARS IN MANY MANY CASES. IT HAPPENED TO ME AND AFTER I GOOGLED THE PROBLEM I SEE IT'S HAPPENED TO MANY, PLUS MANY WHO DON'T LEAVE FEEDBACK.
Summary: It completely died after just four years with a bad HDMI board. I spent $500 on this and spent another $60 on replacing the remote suspecting that could have been the problem. In the end, one after the other, the receiver was shutting off and then it stopped working completely. It is trash now.
Summary: This receiver kicked ass.............while it lasted. My initial research showed this receiver to be an outstanding value. About two and a half years later it was a dead value! I first started having issues with the audio just cutting out.
Summary: I have had my SR707 for 3 years. After the second year, mine had the issue where it stopped outputting sound. I read up on the issue and did the hard reset, which did fix the problem . . . temporarily. Within a week, the sound was dead again, and I had to have it serviced.
Cons: Mine lasted 2 months past 4 years. I guess I don't use it as much. I also own the tx-sr608 that unit wasn't t so lucky. It stop out around 1 yr and 3 months. Onkyo would fix it but it would cost $55 shipping. That is so lame. It had a similar problem but the video would not pass thru. The 707 did...
Summary: I have very little to add to this discussion that has not already been explored. I just wanted to throw in my voice to say that I am now undergoing, as so many others have before me, the "no sound" issue.
Summary: What a piece of garbage. Unit broke under the original warranty, repaired. 2 Months after warranty expired, exact same problem - onkyo made a "courtesy exception" and repaired the same problem again. A year later - guess what - same problem for the 3rd time.
Summary: It's amazing just how many customers commented on just this site alone about this very same issue of short term life for this product. I hope each and every buyer here makes it their goal to let everyone know what a terrible product this company produces - pathetic!
Pros: New Egg always does a great job, and is in no way responsible for the quality or longevity of this product. This product will work great for approximately 24 to 30 months - not much more to say about it after that.
Cons: Onkyo should be ashamed of themselves - my system lasted exactly 24 months, which locked me out of any aupport or warranty replacement (thankfully I bought mine on sale)! If Onkyo cared about its customer base, they would have communicated the issue that the pass-thru HDMI would fail due to heat ...
Summary: We also had an Onkyo TX-SR707 which worked well enough (except: no 3D pass-through) for a couple of years, then developed a problem where it would produce no sound. Cycling switches fixed the sound for a while, then it would fail again. Now there is no sound, no matter what we do.
