Summary: receiver failed after third year. no warranty left. authorized repair shop advd units prone to overheat. 150.00 to fix. shop had another ht-r570 come in for service the day after I dropped mine off. I have two of these systems and I bought them mainly because of the onkyo name. wont buy again.
Summary: I have been very pleased now over the two years since I installed this system. The sound quality is awesome and at higher volumes seems to rival the theatre experience. It has many options for decoding various incoming sound formats whether it's the. TV signal or a music source.
Summary: Onkyo service and reliability sucks. Stay away !
Cons: I've had this unit since 09 and i'm compelled to share my experiences with onkyo to date. 1. Exactly 6months after purchase, the remote receiver circuit failed making the remote useless. Manual selection of inputs worked ie DVD, Cable etc. 2. Then i lost the rear left channel. Sent it for repair ...
Summary: The first thing I noticed when I unpacked this system was the sheer weight of the Onkyo Receiver, any audio buff knows that in order to have true power and sound the receiver must have a good solid weight to it.
Summary: This system sounds GREAT. I did a LOT of research and purchased (and then returned) a few systems by other brands before settling on this one. Yes it's true that you can get a superior system for more money, but this Onkyo is head and shoulders above everything else under $500 and better than many...
