I bought this unit and I plugged it in and it made a loud pop and smoke came out of it. Brought it to the warranty repair place and they fixed it up, but, they did a ton of work on it. It has worked well since then, however, I will tell you that I purchased the extended warranty after that.
That being said, this price is great and I would definitely take the savings and put some of it towards that extended warranty.....
Recently Bought this Onkyo model .
I was skeptical at first because it seems it did have firmware issue with hdmi.
I believe the issue have been resolved, my unit works great and the sound is awesome both Music and Movies sound excellent.
how do you get amazon to pricematch? I just tried and they said they don't pricematch. It's the first time I've tried but I swear I've seen others on slickdeals were successful in doing so in the past.
Wasn't this going for around $240 memorial day sale at the Onkyo store?
Does anyone know of a reciever where you can select which speakers the sound comes from. Like in a 5.1 setup if i'm all the way towards the back, can I only have the rears produce all the sound?
Yup, I got it then. Had firmware issues, but the most recent one seems to have fixed it (must be installed via usb). Personally, I'd rather get the refurb since so many of the new ones have to go back to get fixed and then resold as refurbs.
Amazon reviews all over the place on this receiver. Looks like it had/has firmware issues.
First thing I did was to update the firmware. I dont have any issues. I got it from Amazon Warehouse Used-Like New just last month. If i had waited for $25 more I could have had a brand new unit. But I dont see any difference anyways and I have already used it for $25 for what its worth
