Great at first, but then the HDMI Issue's Onkyo Receivers seem to have bit me in the end!!!

  • Summary: It's a nice looking unit. All the features at the time I wanted for a decent price. I got mine Dec 2008. It was problem free for the first few years, but after that, I started getting strange picture issues with it. Minor at first. In the last year it's really been growing. Turn it on and no picture. A Turn it on off a couple time and the picture would pop up. In this last year it's just been getting worse and worse.

Sorry Onkyo - this one bites

  • Summary: I had this and loved it for almost exactly a year. Then my HDMI completely failed. I went back to my old Yamaha (without HDMI) and an HDMI Switch. I looked around for a Yamaha with HDMI switching. I found one on sale and have been using it for over a year with no problems. I don't know if I got a lemon or what but I was not happy to pay a lot of money for one year's use.

Three Year (+/-) Life Receiver

Matt, Amazon
15 February 2013
  • Summary: You cannot go wrong with this receiver is correct..........for about 3 years, that's about as long as it will last before it starts having trouble "handshaking" to different sources through hdmi. For the last year or so i've had to turn the receiver on, wait about 30 to 45 minutes before watching tv, listen to music, or use anything connected to this receiver.

While it was working it was too hot

  • Summary: It worked for a little over two years. While it worked it run too hot to touch. I was never happy with this purchase. Now that it died I can move to buying another receiver. One thing is for sure, it will not be an Onkyo.

Onkyo receiver

Gary W. Bittick, Amazon
16 December 2011
  • Summary: Loved the sound this unit provided. However, after a little over two years, and with the warranty expired (gee, imagine that), the HDMI card began to fail. The cost of replacement, with labor, was only a few dollars less than what I paid for the receiver. So now I'm stuck with a large and heavy paperweight. Onkyo will be hearing more from me. Of course, it took them a week to reply to my original question to customer services. Buyer beware!

  • 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.

If it breaks, your done for.

Ed, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this unit in February of 2009. One day it just quit working. I called ONkyo and they directed me to their authorized warranty repair center. That was 2 months ago. The warranty center, which is awsome, told me that Onkyo said that the parts are on back order and that I may have to wait another 1-2 months. The warranty center evaluated and called the second day I dropped it off so it wasn't their issue it is ONkyo's.

  • 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.

UNIT FAILURE

Paul St Onge "Paul", Amazon
3 May 2009
  • Summary: I just set this up with my brand new speaker system and it only partly works. Onkyo TX-SR806 7.1 Channel Home Theater Receiver (Silver) After setting up the unit and listening to my iPod for about an hour, I switch over to the tuner/receiver. Then I tried to change the listening mode by pressing the "Music" button on the remote, but landing upon the "Orchestra" setting the most HORRIBLE noise I have ever heard was emitted by the speakers.
