I love all things AVR talk.

PRO TIP for the iOS remote app. I was having all kinds of lag and connectivity issues with the official Onkyo Controller app. I did some research and found that Pioneer uses the Onkyo protocol for its remote features. I downloaded that app and although it looks exactly the same (maybe a little more color) it functions MUCH MUCH snappier than the Onkyo app. It detected the receiver no problem and has been working without issue for the past 3 weeks.

The HDMI issues didn't start until circa 2007 and afterwards. Your 20 year old model wouldnt have HDMI issues and your 12 year old model was manufactured before that.

I had a TX-SR805 and the failure rate on the HDMI boards were extremely high.

Pretty decent deal. Competes with the Denon X3400H which also goes on sale for this price. I've been burned twice by Onkyo in the past and I'm sticking with Yamaha and Denon now with no issues.

This kind of scares me, as I've just pulled the trigger on the deal, and my current onkyo is going strong 10+ years. The 3 zones is what did it for me. Curious how the unit holds up with moderate use (far from an a/v-phile).

They are an authorized dealer. I have a TX-NR 3009 I purchased from them a while back. It's actually at Onkyo having it's HDMI board replaced. I'm going to put it up for sale when I receive it back and buy this unit for it's switching capabilities.

Had two Onkyos with bad HDMI boards in the past. Was tempted with this deal but I can't do it. I'll stick with Yamaha, too.

Sorry for your bad luck, I've got 2 units also. One is over 20 years old and the other is 12 and both still run perfectly but it's time for an upgrade, thanks OP, good deal! TU.

It's a pain to pack up and ship a 55 lb. receiver, but at least they're doing the right thing for their customers.

Just picked up the RZ-720 for about $100 less. Is there much difference?

Biggest difference is that the 820 has preouts which allows you to add a dedicated amp if you have it. The 820 also weighs about 7 lbs more. Considering both are 7.2, the weight difference is usually attributed to things like a beefier power supply, larger capacitors, amp section.

I would be way more comfortable driving lower resistance (ohm) speakers on the 820 than on the 720 thats for sure.

7 lbs is a pretty big difference when comparing across receivers within the same manufacture line.

The 820 also has 1 more zone as well and overall for 100 dollars I would say its definitely worth for just for the better build quality. However for every day usage I doubt you will hear much of a difference.

I own a Denon 4300H and a 3400H and both sound pretty much the same to me.

Thanks! Appreciate the info, will stick with the RZ720, I don't really need anything super beefy for my small basement.

where did you get the 720? That sounds like a good price if you dont need the 820
