About 2 years ago I purchased a refurbished Onkyo TX-SR 875 from Onkyo online. Apart from the heat issue as reported by most reviewers, it worked fine....for the most part. In the first year the front panel display conked out, thankfully it was covered under warranty. Yesterday I was listening to the radio when I heard a crackling/popping sound and saw some smoke coming out of the receiver. Unfortunately it's out of warranty and now I'm wondering if I made a huge mistake choosing an Onkyo over the Denon. Maybe I should've payed attention to some users saying the Onkyo has quality issues. So my question is what receiver I should go for that has great sound quality but also great reliability/quality. I noticed most Denon receivers don't have THX Ultra2 specs, but again overall sound quality is the number one preference.
