Sorry to hear of your trouble with Onkyo. I have been a fan of their products for over 20 yrs. I have a stereo receiver that I have been using for almost 20 years and it has never let me down. I also have a TX-SR805 that I really like, and so far is trouble free. All companies have a certain number of products that fail. Even if a company has a long term success of producing products with a very low failure rating. Sooner or later they are going to have a bad run with a model or two, or more. With time companies change designs, engineers come and go, and where the electronic companies decide to purchase the 100's of small parts to build a receiver. All effects the failure rating. A company might make a killer $1000 dollar receiver. It's sad that if an outside company supplies a bad run of .50 cent resistors. It could make that run of receivers failure rate go up, thus making a lot of customers turn away. Im staying with Onkyo. Even though there are known issues with some of their products. I just like them. Good luck with your next purchase.
