I bought an Onkyo, system in a box less than a year ago for around $600. I am not super into sound systems, I just wanted to have a decent system. The receiver started to fail 6 months after the purchase. Problems getting "no signal" from my sources -2 Apple TVs, Direct TV, Roku, PS3- (plugging the HDMIs directly to the TV, no problem). Then, the subwoofer started to fail. I contacted Onkyo about warranty but they didn't want to accept the copy of the receipt. They want the original one (which I don't have, I use NeatWorks to archive all of my receipts in a digital form). Another thing, the receiver was an oven. So incredibly hot (it is not in a closed cabinet). Anyway, I got tired of my bad, bad Onkyo experience and I got a Yamaha RX-A2010 a few days ago. I still have to learn a lot about the settings, but I am loving it. Everything feels much more sturdy, better quality, better built. I feel confident the Yamaha will be a better experience than the Onkyo.
