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. Turning off the receiver and turning it back on solved this problem. The main issue was that the audio cutting out was intermittent. This went on for several months.
Summary: I am disappointed with how erratic the video switching is executed through this receiver. I have been living with this subpar aspect of this reciever for too long! All other features are fine. I am the proud owner of 3 other Onkyo receivers. TX-SV525 (15 year old refurbished unit still kicking), TX-NR609, HT-RC230. I am tempted to replace the 707 with a Denon 4311CI. The online community has documented HDMI board issues with the 707.
Summary: Like others my 707 stopped working (no sound) after two years. It started shutting down, and then it would come back on a couple hrs later. Then it would shut down and take a day, then several days to come back on, utill after 7 or 8 days it died for good. I tried everything to revive it, but nothing worked, after a week of trying I gave up. Do not buy Onkyo Receivers, unless you plan on useing one as a cheap temporary replacement for another brand.
Summary: It died after two years of use. I've seen many reviews saying they had the same "no sound" issues. I went back to using my 15 year old Sony receiver after this died. I won't be throwing my money away on Onkyo anymore. When it did work I had issues with the unnecessary amount of clicking it would make when changing inputs.
Summary: As many other people said - it failed shortly after warranty expiration. I think such a low quality is not acceptable for a high end equipment. Those things should work till they morally obsolete.. Decent while it was working.. But who cares if I need to throw it away now?..
Summary: I bought this receiver back in December 2009. It has died completely within two months, and was repaired under the warranty. Now it is dead again - can't be turned on, no lights, nothing, and I am out of the warranty time. It spent most of the last two years sitting in the garage, not used. I started to use it again just a month ago, and now I need a new receiver. Stay away from Onkyo products, that's all I can say.
Summary: As others have stated, the Onkyo TX-SR707 unit I purchased stopped working about 18 months after I purchased it. Extremely dissapointing, and basically a waste of the $565.00 that I paid for it.
Summary: Christmas 2011 it died the first time. Still under warranty thank god. Was fixed and returned. Died again mid june 2012. No more warranty. To expensive to fix. Save yourself the trouble. Dont buy onkyo. They don't stand behind their product. Now I have speakers that are doing nothing until I can afford a new one. Money does not grow on trees in my house. I saved for two years for my setup. So sad...
Summary: Just like every other recent reviewer here, my TX-SR707 no longer produces any sound. And as others have mentioned, it happened just a month after the warranty expired. So this receiver ended up costing me about $275 per year for the 2 years it lived. What a piece of garbage. Never again Onkyo.
