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.

Defective does not work.

Chip, Amazon
29 March 2014
  • 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.

not recommend

  • Summary: Sounds great until internal short which seems to be common with this unit. Do an internet search for 'Onyko check sp wire' before you buy.

Onkyo TX-8050

Tom C, Crutchfield
21 March 2014
  • Summary: Do not buy this unit! Mine only lasted about 26 months, then just quit working for no reason. Extremely disappointed!
  • Pros: none
  • Cons: This unit is garbage, suddenly quit working for no apparent reason. A waste of money. Crutchfield did not care to compensate me for the loss. Very disappointed with them...And Onkyo

Broke after light use. Months waiting for warranty repair.

B. Blake, Amazon
20 February 2014
  • Summary: Like T. Wright below: It worked great until it didn't work at all. Sent it in for warranty repair 2 months ago. Part is on backorder. A warranty really isn't worth much if they can't get the parts to fix it. == I had it for 8 months with very light use, then one day it wouldn't turn on.

1 star after a month long battle

THansen, Amazon
8 January 2014
  • Summary: I think I've finally gotten this receiver to work with a TP-LINK WN-722N USB wireless adapter. "Think" because I just finished config and need to give it a few days to see how it holds up.

Simply does not work

Mark, Amazon
12 July 2013
  • Summary: Nothing but trouble on this device trying to do what it is designed to do. It will not connect to my home wireless network with any consistency. I have been on the phone with Onkyo support for literally hours and hours but they cant get it to stay connected to tell me why it goes offline constantly.

Useless for WiFi Internet Radio

Scott Hodges, Amazon
25 June 2013
  • Summary: Got this so I could listen to Pandora and other internet radio and got the Wi-fi usb card. First unit and card connected at the very first but stuttered, then no connection. Went through the tech support song and dance and they said it was a faulty receiver to request a new one.
