Excerpt: I hooked these to my wonderful 1970's vintage EPI's that had once been powered by a lovely sounding TEAC receiver. Well, what a disappointment my first Onkyo piece turned out to be. No vocal nuance or layering, this thing is best suited for the scooped sound of hip hop (I guess).
Summary: I bought this receiver in 2013. In late 2014 it quit working. They repaired it free of charge, it worked for a few months and quit working again. Onkyo Support won't even respond to my emails. I will Never buy another Onkyo product.
Summary: Lasted 2 years but very light service. Used maybe 20 hours and now no output at all on any outputs under any circumstances. I'm disappointed that an Internet search of this problem shows many, many people have had the same problem on this pig unit. Onkyo should be ashamed to market this junk.
Summary: I bought both receiver and the USB LAN connector. Upon calling Amazon Tech support (the fellow was very considerate and patient), a connection was finally received from the router 48 feet away. I lost connection, spent countless time attempting to reconnect. Tech support was overworked.
Summary: Got this and it turns itself off all the time. I read online that this is a Factory defect, and now has to be sent to Onkyo for repair. Stay away from this amplifier or check the serial number, there is a list online of defective ones.
Summary: The receiver sounds great, but the sole reason for my purchase was to use my iPad to control Pandora via the advertised WIFI connection. I guess I should have gone on the Internet and read the reviews of this function and I would have realized it doesn't function at all.
Pros: Good sound, quality construction.
Cons: Wireless app does not function. Therefore, its just a stereo unit.
