Most were HDMI board failures and were replaced in and out of warranty.

Don't get me wrong, Onkyo had a bad run. Every major company has their issues.

Yamaha makes some good receivers too, but Audyssey was the selling point for the Onkyo. YPAO is okay, but I don't care much for it. It seems a little basic. You will be happy with either, but you may have that nagging question of "what if I had Audyssey MultEQ XT32" in the back of your mind...

You have to take the good and the bad. Talk to some more Onkyo owners, visit some review sites from consumers (Amazon, NewEgg, Crutchfield) and take the top and bottom ten percent and ignore them. The rest are probably fairly accurate.


Climber, I have not given up on the 1010, like I said I still have a 8 or 9 year Onkyo that performs flawlessly, well that's when they were made in Japan tho. I still like Onkyo especially the TX-NR1010, has everything I need, beefy amp section, really good phono stage (a rare thing) these days, and all the bells and whistles and top of the line Audyssey XT32 SUB EQ HT and weighs a lot, that matters to me I don't why but I think weight denotes power. I also have an in with the regional Onkyo repair center rep in Newark NJ . I had problems with my last Onkyo receiver I bought from Amazon when Onkyo posted on their site the defective models with corresponding serial numbers and Amazon kept sending the defective model with the serial # that denoting it being defective. I got to the bottom of my problem with this person from Onkyo, instead of sending it back to Amazon so they could the same thing over again, she told me to send it to her and exchanged it for a good serial # and buhrned it in for five days prior to shipping back to me, free of course, Amazon ended up giving me a 30% discount for my troubles, all they had to do was look at the box and cross reference the serial # and send one that didn't match, they couldn't even do that. Another thing Onkyo sells more receivers than anyone so naturally they may have a higher % of problems. You are right the fix was easy just like you said involving HDMI and transistor boards. So I'm saying I'm not giving up on that 1010, I just can't get the discount I could with Yamaha, Marantz or Pioneer.
On a side not I have my four XV15SEs stacked in the R&L front corners, will calibrate tomorrow and get back.
Cheers Jeff

All I can say is if you haven't heard a Triax you don't know what you're missing, I hated to let mine go (Cordovan) but it went to a good home, the single could be felt a floor above and my pant legs used to actually flap in the wind Ray has to be in bass heaven with four. I now have four XV15SEs and they really help with the seller's remorse. I'm still not done yet. The money I plan on saving with the new PSA speakers selling off all my external amps I may consider selling the four XV15SEs and buying dual Triaxs, seriously. I definitely need duals in my space, nasty null I couldn't get rid of, didn't have the funds to purchase a second Cordovan Triax but this time like I said I may go back to standard finish Triaxs. I think after I get the new speakers I will be completely satisfied and be done for a while, I just have to remove my name from this forum and never come back YEAH. I can't wait to try out the four stacked XV15Ses in my front L&R corners, my sister and me have them all setup now I have to just dial them in. This location is very conducive to room gain and I'll have a ton of headroom. Tom and Jim, I hope it's Miller time soon (speakers)
Cheers to all, Jeffrey Nordi

I will be curious on your impressions with the dual stacks of XV15se's. Was wondering about that upgrade path for myself down the line should I want more than I am currently getting. Since I already have two of them I absolutely love it seems the simplest path.

I hope I don't end up wanting more, right now the xv15's feel like a gut punch when I turn them up. Somehow since I got then my listening levels have increased though, which is odd. Even though the spl meter reads higher, the room is pulsating like never before, it never hurts my ears as would happen previously.

Do these subs have a limiter light on them? Or can you just tell you have reached limits by measuring spl?

They have soft limiters. Last I talked with Tom there was no plans for a ported version of the Triax due to the cost of shipping and sheer size.

That is understandable, sure would be something special it seems.

I guess I was thinking more along the lines of an XV30 with the extreme excursion triax drivers, and a monster 4kw amp... Not sure that's any more feasible or even makes sense from a performance standpoint, but seems like it could work. Tom certainly knows better than me though.

I AM the man with the 10 pound brain after all..

There are always good ideas from you guys. The problem for us is....we want to implement each idea to near perfection. Whether it is shipping logistics to avoid customers dealing with damage, vendor considerations to ensure we have a stable supply chain, or just the dozens of performance "rainbows" that all must work in perfect synergy to really have an optimized design. So far, I'd say the AVERAGE time from first concept to production/shipping for Jim and myself is about 2 years. As we continue to grow and add staff that will likely drop accordingly..

Ordered a XS15se today, my first PSA product. I cannot wait. Tom chatted with me for close to an hour to figure out what was best for me.

Tom and Jim, I would be more than happy to come down on a regular basis and donate my time and energy with the development of the new dual 10"s, I could be your gofer, driver installer, in other words your slave for trade. Sorry guys I didn't get around to calibrating the four stacked XV15Ses upfront today but will try again tomorrow and post my thoughts, I have very high expectations and PSA subs never seem to disappoint. You guys already know that tho. Take care my friends.
Sincerely yours, Jeffrey Nordi

When my amp died they had me back up and running within five days (this failure occurred on July 3 mind you. Quite impressive for a holiday weekend). Not sure what your failure is, but if you email them they react instantly. Maybe even quicker over the website chat.

Cool, thanks man. My jbl's are huge, but they have almost no low end. I set up a low shelf in jriver to get me by until my sub is fixed, but it's such a huge difference in low end output.

I asked Tom to but he said the Triax would have to be 450 pounds and huge if it was ported I was wow but it would look so awesome.

Yup...its a single unit using 6 triax driver units...weights ~400 lbs... not really a practical in design but if you can only have one sub..that would be it.

I really fought the urge to have Jim fire it up...its better to just sit and wonder...what if...than... to know your single sub solution is inadequate...

That would just be 2 Triax's though. I actually did hear it when I picked up my 3rd Triax. Tom said that one was loaded with the original design drivers and an outboard amp.

My down time was like three days for the new amps, I live in PA tho and PSA is in Ohio. They're really quick about it. Have you check the fuse on the back of the amp

Sorry I quoted the wrong person, 3 days for me to get my two SE amps replaced and running. Have you checked the outboard fuse on the back of the amp, right above the power input.

Yeah it's locked up software on the amp. Tom's customer service is top notch. He contacted me this morning, and said a replacement would ship tomorrow. Sucks having no sub with big pro audio mains, but at least I'll only be down a few days. Took some time to play with the peq function in jriver though, and a low shelf is helping me get by.

We just got the first copy for fact check about a few hours ago. At first read through everything looks fine so I'd guess within a week./ Maybe even a day. I'm not sure of the schedule. This isn't Josh though. This is a new reviewer (for us) that came highly recommended. He is doing CEA-2010 as well but that may not show up for a few weeks after initial publication as I believe he has an injury that makes moving the XS30se outside problematic.

I'm glad you're looking for new personnel for reviews. I imagine it can be overwhelming when an entire industry relies on one or a select few to do the reviews.That's one thing I haven't enjoyed too much about internet direct subs. I don't really buy something like this unless I can see a review and directly compare. Now, I'm pretty much dead set on a XV15SE, just nothing in graph form yet. I wished this part of the industry moved faster. I can get information about a phone or benchmarks for a new cpu/gpu before they are released but it takes months to get numbers on a sub. I know, it is a much smaller industry, but still. There is always that thought of "well, Fuji's new hybrids look nice, that would get me outside and my family would enjoy that, maybe I want to spend my money that way". No, this guy needs a new sub, not something to make his asthma flare up.

Ordered dual XV15se today. We haven't had a sub in our system for the last 4 or 5 years, so I'm pretty excited about having these.

I just got my dual xv15se's a few weeks ago as well. IMO (and everyone that comes over) these things thoroughly dominate my 6k cubic foot room. Me thinks you are in for a treat.

Hi Benjamin, Your order will ship out this afternoon. I'll have tracking info off to you by 2-3pm(Eastern).

Dual XV15se subs are a powerful combo I'm betting you enjoy them very much..

Be sure to let us know if you have ANY setup or calibration questions and thank you very much for the order too!

I now have four XV15SEs and they really help with the seller's remorse. I'm still not done yet. The money I plan on saving with the new PSA speakers selling off all my external amps I may consider selling the four XV15SEs and buying dual Triaxs, seriously. I definitely need duals in my space, nasty null I couldn't get rid of, didn't have the funds to purchase a second Cordovan Triax but this time like I said I may go back to standard finish Triaxs. I think after I get the new speakers I will be completely satisfied and be done for a while, I just have to remove my name from this forum and never come back YEAH. I can't wait to try out the four stacked XV15Ses in my front L&R corners, my sister and me have them all setup now I have to just dial them in. This location is very conducive to room gain and I'll have a ton of headroom. Tom and Jim, I hope it's Miller time soon (speakers)
Cheers to all, Jeffrey Nordi
For any of you out there running quads, what is the preferred method for doing this? Are you splitting three times off the AVR or daisy chaining? Or maybe you are fortunate and have two sub channels?

Just curious as it seems quad xv15se's might be just as potent as dual Triax's, at least in the 16-25hz range (for barely more than the cost of a single Triax). Are there other considerations to be made? Such as improves SQ with the Triax or maybe signal degradation from so many splits?
