Summary: Like other reviews on this product, and other Onkyo receiver reviews, they seem to have a problem in the HDMI boards. They die. They probably use the same board design in all their receivers, even their newest models. Programming was not straight forward.
Cons: Within a couple of months of ownership, this unit had to go back to Onkyo for repair. Onkyo customer service told me that the closest repair location was in Michigan (from southwest Alabama). Finally I convinced them that Atlanta was, in fact, closer to Alabama than Michigan. Upon return, the uni...
Summary: I've had this system for a little over a year now, and started having issues right away. I have had a few minor issues, such as pairing problems with the remote, but below are the two main troubles I've had with this system: 1. One of the HDMI ports went out after 6 months.
Summary: I bought this unit about a year ago. It sounds great and worked fine for a few months. Then I noticed occasional drop out of audio. This progressively got worse and then video started dropping out. I have a cable box, Blue Ray and computer all connected with HDMI.
Summary: The lead tech said there ARE certain systems that are worth the money. As expensive as Boss is, they are worth it. There are others, just don't remember now. Basically, if you want to take a risk, buy one of these cheap ones.
Pros: This little trooper does put out some sound and has a nice bass. If you get a model that does not break on you, the price is a steal! High hopes there. The rest of this will be the cons. I have already written a review or two about this but promised an update after I had it for a while, so here i...
Cons: I have had to return this thing twice for repairs. The first dealt with the front two speakers, which started putting out loud loud distortion. The second, not a month later, had to do with the screen flickering on and off every minute, increasing in frequency the longer it stayed on. I called an...
Pros: Sound quality is excellent for the price range, plug and play, setup it's a breeze, just added speaker stands for the rear and that completed the system, the passive subwoofer sound is strong and it shakes everything in the house, have enough HDMI inputs to take care of all my needs.
Cons: The receiver could be smaller but it fitted in my living furniture perfectly
Summary: I had read many of the previous reviews prior to purchasing this set. I am very pleased with the quality of the sound and in particular the bass. Some of the comments mentioned the passive bass as perhaps not generating enough sound. Well, we are in a 20 x 14 room and this is plenty.
Summary: This item started smoking and quit working about 6 mo after purchase. I contacted Onkyo for the warranty and had to drive the unit 25 miles to DTR a service center in Denver. They've had the unit for a month and still have not fixed it.
