Very Good Receiver Overall, but Know All Features!

 

Overall, this is a good receiver and I have come to be very happy with it. However, there are some very important things that a prospective buyer needs to know about it first; I didn't know these things when I bought it but fortunately I was able to...

Sound quality is great ; Setup and configuration were very simply ; Great On-screen display ; vTuner is a nice option for Internet streaming audio

No have for cons

Died at 3 ears

 

It worked for 3 years

Died after 3 years. Seems like a common problem

Nice receiver, but gets hot

The receiver died after exactly 3 years. It was only used about once a month for an hour or two. Daily use would have sped up its end-of-life much sooner

Onkyo junk

 

I have owned Onkyo products in the past and enjoyed them. This purchase was a bitter disappointment, especially when I started investigating this issue and found that there are many, many others like me whose receiver just QUIT suddenly.

Under warranty...great. Out of warranty...a pretty paperweight

No audio as soon as it was out of warranty. Pathetic. It appears this is a systemic problem with Onkyo. I will avoid this manufacturer in the future. Their best days are behind them

Good until failure - free repair

 

My 2nd Onkyo receiver. Last one lasted a long time and I only upgraded to this one because I needed HDMI support. Worked great, initially. But, one HDMI port died about 2 years in. Several months later, the audio stopped working altogether & Network...

Great sound & modes ; Easy setup ; Optical audio

Died after 2+ years ; Network apps are a bit archaic (though they work) ; Volume button on remote wore out after about 2 years

ONKYO FAILS AFTER 2 YEAR WARRANTY

 

Onkyo has well known quality problem. These receivers fail after the 2-year warranty. If you look at Onkyo ratings & feed back. here and throughout the web, you see the same thing over and over: We all loved our receiver, but it died after two years....

Everybody loves them while they work

Onkyo receiver fail after 2 year warranty

Consumer review by:

Lasts 2 Years

 

Offered a rich feature set at a comparitively low price point

The trade-off for the low-price point appeared just after the 2 year warranty expired---the audio quit across all of my inputs. Googling the issue, you'll find this is plaguing many owners at the same 2 year mark

Consumer review by:

Discontinued, thank whomever!!!

 

The fact that it failed just before 4 birthday celebrations in our household just adds to the stinky mess that is Onkyo...

Worked fine until warranty period expired ( 2-year ). Purchased in July 2011, sound output failed October 2013. Heavy online reporting of failed HDMI PC board. Major product flaw, Onkyo should acknowledge and offer replacement. This was my first, and...

Read pros ; My previous receiver was a Sony which lasted 8 years with no problems whatsoever....hmmmm. Traded for a Ludwig Black Beauty snare drum
