I agree. I've owned 2 older Onkyo's sold them to get HDMI support and was very disappointed. I liked the features , but have since moved onto a Yamaha RX-V765 and RX-V1065 which I got at year end prices. Both of these unit outshine the Onkyos. No HDMI issues after a 15 months, no heat build up, no "burned up" electronics. If anyone wants proof just Google "Onkyo burned" or "Onkyo HDMI problem".
Frankly, I can't understand why people keep buying them or defend the obvious history of poor quality. I guess it's like some cars used to be. Thinking Fiat, Renault, and even Volkswagen. None have good long term reliability, but people buy them for some status thing I guess. Just my opinion
