    Report

  • Receiver is making a buzzing noise.
    Reviewed by RH - 13 octobre 2021

    I was loving this receiver till I noticed the buzz which would get louder and louder the longer I used the product. The buzz isn't coming from any of my speakers, but the receiver itself, which leads me to believe it's the transformer at fault. I've disconnected all my speakers and plugged the unit into a separate outlet to test. The unit is only 3 days old, so I'm going to exchange it for a Sony. Trust the other reviews and avoid Onkyo.

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

  • Defective Product
    Reviewed by Cal - 18 janvier 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.
