My Onkyo TX-NR709 had a faulty HDMI board and Onkyo replaced it with the TX-NR717. How mad should I be and how accountable should I hold Onkyo? I'm losing a component input, an audio I/O and all the S-video functions. Mainly, I'm going from Audyssey MultiEQ XT to 2EQ. To me, that is unacceptable based solely on the 2EQ drop. I'm currently exploring my options and thinking about asking for a full refund and purchasing something else entirely. I'm also awaiting a call back to see what they will do on their end, hoping for the 818, but not holding my breath. What are anyone else's thoughts?

I would be pissed about the drop from MultEQ XT down to 2EQ.

If they can't upgrade you to 818 can't they send you a NR709 from their outlet? they have them in stock.

They magically "found" some new stock of the 709s and are going to give me a prepaid shipping label to send back...which is fine, but I've been without my receiver (and therefore speakers etc.) for over 2 months now, which is longer than I had the original unit. Too bad they couldn't give me the 818 for the inconvenience.

I have the same issue basically offered a refurbished 709 or a new 717 asked if I could pay the difference for a 818 told NO. I was thinking the 717 would be better until I read all of the posts on the Audyssey MultiEQ XT to 2EQ. How much difference is there really between the 2EQ and MultiEQ XT. Maybe I should just sell the 717 and get the 818?
