Pros Cons
  • Good sound, lots of connectors
  • Bad HDMI switching board

I had the receiver for 14 months and the HDMI switching board went out.  I was warned about the problems after I bought the unit.  If you buy it, get a extended warranty, if you own it, find a extended warranty.

 

My warranty sent me a refund check back, as it was $325 to fix it, and I only paid $299 for it.

    I have an 818 and I guess like many it is just a matter of time before the HDMI board fails.  Onkyo really dropped the ball and guaranteed that my 818 is the last Onkyo product I will purchase.  There are just too many reports of the HDMI boards failing.  If these were cars they would be forced to do a recall.
