Summary: Overheated and Failed after 4 months After 4 months the unit overheated and failed after watching tv through a sat receiver. Unit is now dead. Repair Service is a real pain. There have been some cases of the receiver spontaneously catching fire. Told by repair center that all onkyo mid-range receivers run extremely hot. Avoid onkyo for their dreadful design.
Summary: This unit worked great until June when it quit working. Dropped it off at the warranty service center that Onkyo recommended. The service center is great but Onkyo has had me on hold for parts for 2 months. The Warranty Service Center can't fix it because they don't have the parts. Apparently, I may have to wait another 1-2 months. If you feel like rolling the dice go ahead and buy this unit. Maybe you will get one that won't need any parts.
