Any feedback on the TX-NR676? Good for 4K/HDR? I need at least 2 inputs, but prefer all.

I'm with you on that one. Lost audio on one channel due to a known fault and they wouldn't fix. Then lost all audio after 2.5 years of light usage.

I've had mine for about 4 yrs now. 1 HDMI issue once, but took it outside and blew all the dust out with my blower and everything works fine now.

Btw what's the main difference between the 2 onkyo receivers listed? Thinking about buying 1 then using the gift card for a ps4 pro or an HTC vive...

My last onkyo I bought last year is still going strong after 1.25. But one I bought four years ago was going down the tubes. These things are cheap compared to an iPhone and you do use it every day. I'd buy onkyo again.

Don't believe the hype when it comes to all the onkyo haters. I've had the 626 for 4 years now and practically abuse the thing. No issues what so ever. Had some trouble getting it set up (user error) and contacted their support. They were very helpful.
These are good products and at this price a no brainer.

AWFUL quality control issues. I own both an 818 and a 626, and they are both dead.

818 had the famous HDMI board meltdown. It was sent in to be fixed, all they did was a software factory reset, HDMI was still fried, wouldn't repair it. $700 down the drain.

626 just stopped working after about 18 months. $320 gone.

Their HDMI boards were atrocious. I assume they have fixed them now. But it was recall level problems, and Onkyo absolutely refused to acknowledge that it was a systemic issue, screwing the consumer over, and forcing each individual to deal with it with either warranty service, or if the unit of was out warranty, then out of pocket expense. Unacceptable.

*Update-looks like Onkyo acknowledged a "problem" but it wasn't with the HDMI board, and for only a limited production run from 2009-2012.

Just google AVS Forums (one of the biggest A/V message boards online) and put Onkyo into the search box, you can see for yourself.

I say stay far far away from Onkyo.

Yeo. That was the deal with mine. They acknowledged the issue, but only covered a limited amount of devices and I was totally SOL.
Have a Yamaha now and hopefully won't have issues.

Stuff happens and companies have to deal with it. But how it chooses to deal with clear fundamental issues shows you who the good and bad guys are.

I'll never buy onkyo again, my high end receiver failed several times over 3 years and the final failure was far too expensive to fix.

Looking for a budget receiver and it seems like a lot of bang for your buck with the Onkyo. However searching around Newegg I went and price matched the RX-V381 Yamaha today at best buy. So far I'm happy with the product for a budget receiver does everything I needed it to do and I'm not sitting on a gift card for another future purchase.
