I've rocked a 5.1 unit for about 15 years and it's been great. I can't speak for anything more recent though.

Free shipping to me, and if I don't like it by day 30 paypal will cover $30 of the return shipping while Adorama refunds everything but the remaining return shipping. Doesn't sound like I'm risking much to try it. If I do like it I can slap upsie or squaretrade on it.

This better than a Vizio M51a soundbar from Costco for $299?

I loved my Onkyo - but it got hit with the NO-SOUND HDMI Board issue (did get it going with HEAT GUN but 2nd time now dead ) and the Yamaha refurb from Newegg last week just took it's place - Onkyo was bought out last July 2020 -

So BUYER BEWARE !Confused

(Onkyo did last 6 yrs but a $1000 unit should last many more - my KENWOOD from 1974 still works fine! ! )

I'll compare it to the Vizio SB3851-D0 whenever the Onkyo gets here.

Part of the issue is the overall Hi-Fi business is struggling if you're selling budget audio. As consumers purchased Bluetooth headphones, speakers and TV soundbars, they essentially said that was good enough for their "hi-fi" audio needs. If you're trying to sell a budget receiver and are trying to compete you're going to have to cut costs and your research and development, component quality and over quality control are going to take a hit.

Toss into the mix that HDMI is ever evolving and you're going to have issues due to the former QC/support.

I'm still using 5.1 receivers from 2001 via optical input from TV. I connect all my HDMI devices to the TV and that usually avoids any HDMI issues. I've never felt the need to move beyond 5.1 surround. Either way unless I'm buying a new Yamaha, chances are that many old receivers will last well beyond the lifespan of the current new budget receivers.

Some recent headlines about Onkyo (Pioneer & Integra) company. Klipsch (owned by Voxx) appears to be distributing the brands in US. Whilst Sound United, owners of Denon and Marantz, took a look at Onkyo and decided not purchase them.

It really sucks that Onkyo has had some dependability issues in the recent past because their mid-range receivers have great sound quality that sometimes even rivals Yamaha. I was just really disappointed by a nice Denon so I'm sticking with Yamaha for now. I did just pickup a mint Onkyo TX-NR646 to mess around with and it seems OK so far besides slow USB playback.

I bought this on one of the earlier deals and have had it for ~3 months. Upgraded from a really old surround sound system. It doesn't rock the apartment but happy with it so far. I think it's worth it as it sounds great during movies and when we stream music through it. I like the various settings it has for sound.

I have an Onkyo HT-RC270 that I bought about 10 years ago. I had the same issue with the HDMI board, so I took it to my local repair center. The repair center called Onkyo and they authorized a repair even though my warranty was expired. I've had zero issues since then. This was about 5 years ago so I don't know if this would still work, but worth a shot.

Tried my Local Authorized Repair shop 15 min from me. $312 for the HDMI Board + labor and tried Onkyo Tech support to sell me the board and they said they don't sell too consumers.
(Onkyo did warranty any unit with the issue till 2018 ) Texas Instruments chip with issue requires ball solder - (lots of videos about the issue online.)

Oh wow I didn't know they stopped warranting that in 2018. How disappointing. I will definitely keep that in mind when I finally replace my current receiver
