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: 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: 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.
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.
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: 7.2-Channel A/V Surround Home Theater Receiver We purchased this receiver when it was a new model without reviews. Unfortunately now we know the lack of quality in Onkyo products. Upon installation we couldn't get sound from the surround sound speakers.
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.
Summary: The unit was great when it worked. Great features at an attractive price. All this is moot now as the unit died after 16 months. I get no sound at all. The problem has been reported by scores of users on this site and others on the internet. Onkyo refuses to admit an inherent defective product.
