Adding my anecdotal evidence to the fray: I've been running a 656 for over a year and have had zero issues. Stepped up from a Sony DH-540 and am very pleased.
Supposedly Onkyo will take any receiver back with HDMI issues for free and repair. Been a while since people have complained about Onkyo HDMI issues on here...

100% agree. Hard to believe it's 10 years now of Onkyo/ Integra HDMI issues.

My onkyo from the pre HDMI era is like a tank. Not sure why they can't handle HDMI...

Yeah....no.

I've got an TX-NR809 that continues to have HDMI ARC issues even after being sent in for warranty repairs. Granted it did work for another 1-2 years after they fixed it.

Onkyo receivers will get you maybe 5 years if you are lucky and after one warranty repair at half that time.

Research before you buy this. Onkyo receivers are either made with bad parts or simply bad design....too many failures.

Sure, you may get one that last 7 or 8 years if you are lucky, but look at how many have continuing problems well before and after warranty periods.
Do you want to gamble on a 15-20% chance that you get a bad one?

Just a thought: buy open box for $200 and add $40 4 year warranty.

I've had one of these since same deal last year. It has weird clicking sound at random and sometimes sound cuts in/out. I want to pick up a Yamaha like I had before this one for 6 years no problems.

I had just over 3 years with no issue when the warranty ran out. That is when they began the extended warranty program because so many people had issues. So, that was great...I sent it in and they repaired it. Lasted another 2 years before issues.

So, on the one hand they extended the warranty which was great...but they had known issues and even 5 years is not enough out of a receiver that should last until you need to upgrade for technology/port issues.

If you plan on keeping it for only the warranty period, then ok. But otherwise, there are too many units with problems. Sure 80% chance you might be fine, but do you want a 20% chance you won't be?

Also...that 80% of fine is probably skewed because many of those people don't report..or like you say everything is rosy after only a year. Bookmark this and let me know how things are in 2022 Smilie

Onkyo has one additional HDMI input and output, and Chromecast for control. Onkyo's had some QC and reliability issues in recent years.

Yamaha has an initial power on volume setting, a dialog boost option, a phantom surround back speaker option (if you're running 5.1 or 5.1.2, it can simulate 7.1 or 7.1.2), and uses Alexa for control.

Otherwise they have similar features and equally good sound.

I'd personally get the Yamaha because I prefer the Yamaha's features and feel they're worth paying extra for.

I recommend doing a manual calibration with tape measure and sound pressure meter / app and turning the auto-EQ off with either receiver.

The price of 7 channel receivers hasn't really changed in the last 5 years - if anything, MSRP went up $50. 7 channel receivers have been on sale for $250-300 for at least the past 5 years. For example, you can reliably find last year's $650 Yamaha receivers for $300 each November.

Onkyo's current sales and bargain prices have less to do with people upgrading, and more to do with their recent reliability and QC issues. They're looking to reclaim market share by offering lower prices, thus their recently released 9 channel receiver for $700 MSRP when Yamaha and Denon want $1500+.

I'll chime in on hdmi issues as well. Got the 656 around this time last year and about 3 months in (after firmware updates...) I start getting handshake issues. Onkyo was zero help and stopped responding to email.

Bought the denon 730h a few months ago and have had zero issues.

Have an Onkyo tx-nr509 from 2012. HDMI just crapped out after switching off a breaker. I was able to get it to work for another month switching the HDMI off and On and fiddling with hard resets and clearing memory. Too much of a hassle though. Read their receivers have these issues. Sad thing is the rebate they offer for their crap going out, because they know they produce garbage, was just lowered from 150 to 98 bucks for my model.
