Needs a lot of improvement on product durability and company support

DAN R., Amazon
24 March 2016
  • Summary: Unit will not turn on exactly after three months. I have to pay for shipment to have the unit repaired to the only service center in CA which is 325.6 miles away from me. ONKYO support is a joke because nobody answers at the other end, just recordings.

Terrible phono stage!

Amazon Customer, Amazon
17 March 2016
  • Summary: If you plan on using this to use with a turntable, forget it. The phono stage on this receiver is so bad that it makes records unlistenable. I returned it immediately.

BUYER BEWARE! NO LONGER STREAMS SIRIUSXM!!

Walter I., Amazon
4 November 2015
  • Summary: I've owned this receiver for years, primarily for streaming satellite radio, and occasionally for playing my iPod/iPhone... it has delivered great performance. BUT, on September 30th, SiriusXM changed their streaming format. Since that day, this receiver is no longer capable of streaming SiriusXM.

Oink, oink

Jeff, Amazon
15 August 2014
  • 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.

Unit failed

Keith B., Newegg
24 June 2014
  • Summary: This was my first experience with Onkyo. It will probably be my last.
  • Pros: Fit a niche need for my home network. Newegg's service as always was superb.
  • Cons: Motherboard failure after 2.5 years of ownership. The cost of repair from the authorized Onkyo Service Center is more than purchasing a new unit under full warranty.

Forget wi-fi radio - - - rather disgusted

James Priester, Amazon
6 June 2014
  • 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.

No sound, no joy: Two repairs in a year

M2, Amazon
17 July 2013
  • Summary: I purchased the Onkyo TX-8050 receiver on April 2, 2012 from Amazon. In November 2012, it stopped producing sound in one speaker. I spent many hours trying to troubleshoot it and purchased new speaker wire. Onkyo support said it was a faulty speaker terminal on the receiver.
