Summary: Purchased the TX-SR875 new from Amazon on Dec 12, 2007. On 17th of June 2008 the HDMI output failed. It was returned to the Onkyo DTR Service Center in Denver, CO and they received it July 1, 2008. They stated the expected turnaround time would be up to 3 weeks.
Summary: I bought the TX-SR875 to replace a Denon AVR-5700 which was their top of the line 7-8 years ago. Although CE products are always dropping in price I wasn't sure that this receiver could replace the Denon although it had the Reon chip. I was wrong.

This was my first onkyo, my existing and previous recivers have been yamaha, sony, harmon-karden, and JVC, and not one has ever broken and some are creeping...
Summary: I received mine and got it all hooked up. Overall I like the receiver, plenty of HDMI ports for me, power, sounds good, etc. But, something was driving me crazy for the longest time and I couldn't figure it out, then one day it hit me...the audio had a fraction of a second delay over the video.
Summary: I got it new, powered it up, hooked up the speakers and there was no output to the speakers. Called onkyo tech support who said it was locked in headset mode and needs to be returned back to the dealer.
