If Onkyo is on his radar, I think that is rather fitting.
Not sure what happened to them. They used to put out some decent stuff.
I don't know if their manufacturing is at fault, their engineering is at fault, or a combination of the two. But, Onkyo gear seems to be under tested, under engineered and generally, less than sterling when it comes to function and reliability.
I had 3 of their AVRs (805, 875, 906) a few years ago that were totally unsatisfactory operationally (and I'm a pretty savvy guy when it comes to setting a HT up).
I'll never buy another.
They seem to have only become worse since then.
