not from what I've seen and heard - I've had two onkyo's fail with hdmi problems in under 3 years and they aren't covered by their special program where you put in your serial number for free coverage after the 1 year warranty. I have one of their pre-hdmi recievers that is still going strong.

Yes, they did, but they are still not as reliable as Yamaha, but then neither is Denon. Modern receivers in general seem to have a higher rate of failure than they used to back in the day.

It's 80 watts/channel at 0.08 THD. The 10%THD is like a max power rating, which is 170 watts/channel. Good price for entry level 7.1/atmos, but it is is entry level. Its comparable to Denon S730 or Yamaha Rx-V583 in class.

Internally, it's identical to the Pioneer VSX-932 that went front page at $279 a few days ago. Anyone who grabbed that deal should try to cancel and do this instead.

Did Onkyo fix the premature failure problem from years back?

manufacturers specs for power ratings are basically useless. they do not follow any established standards as far as signal bandwidth, signal duration, number of channels driven, allowable THD, etc. manufacturers are known to tweak the test to get the numbers they want to publish, so that is their only real purpose.

Is there pre amp out? Is that the same as Zone 2 output? Thanks.

That's true to some extent. I was just clearing up where the two numbers came from on the spec sheet according to Onkyo's process. Two channels driven, onkyo's almost always exceed the specified watts per channel at 0.08% THD in 3rd party testing so it's probably above what they spec at that spec level. This is not to be confused with all channels driven. Most receivers lack an adequate power supply to meet rated power at all channels driven. Onkyo does use 7 discrete Toshiba amp chips in this receiver that are rated at 100 watts each (I have service manuals of both this Onkyo and equivalent Pioneer). It does have a 460 watt power supply which exceeds that of Denon S730 (400 watts) and the Yamaha RX-V583 (260 watt).

It does not have full 7.1 pre-out. It does have two channel zone 2 pre-outs.

4 year protection plan is only $19, seems it would be worth it as a peace of mind!
