Snap Crackle Pop + Plume of smoke

J. Tran, Amazon

  • Summary: This receiver sounded great for all of 2hours. I wanted so much to love it, but wasn't meant to be. Watched The Matrix and a little over 2 hours into it, flash, crackle, and plume of smoke. The unit did not feel warm. Ventilation was not an issue, because it was just sitting on the tile floor.

  • Summary: This receiver performed very well for a month, then I turned it on one evening and was greeted with sparks and smoke coming out of the top of the unit. I am getting a replacement unit ... we'll see!

  • Summary: The overheating problem with the SR805 is REAL. It fizzled, sparked and died during the Jacksonville-Pittsburgh playoff game Saturday night. What's worse... I called Onkyo and they said that I will have to take it to an authorized service center.
