  • Good reciever, works well.
    Reviewed by Don - December 27, 2020

    With a few minor tweaks (speaker volumes etc) it wasn't long before I was up and running. My personal opinion, I also bought the extended warranty just to be on the safe side. For a few extra bucks it is worth it.

    Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

  • Defective Product
    Reviewed by Cal - January 18, 2021

    I received my new receiver, and TV screen was all snowy and was flickering. Receiver was defective. Had to return to Ontario, haven't received a refund for it yet. I since purchased a Pioneer which I am still waiting to receive. My original receiver was an Onkyo which I had 8 or 9 years ,the voice went on it. So over all I would not recommend buying a Onkyo receiver.

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

  • 2 Lemons in a row
    Reviewed by John - April 25, 2021

    I"m very very disappointed, this is the second receiver that I purchased for my sister, and neither one worked properly. I've know Onkyo to be a good brand, but 2 receivers in a row that don't work properly right out of the box is a huge disappointment. Not to mention the hassle that I have to go through to return them. Sorry Onkyo, you've lost my business.

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
