Some people had the board repair 2 and 3 times...
I am not disagreeing with you for argument's sake...(I know it may seem that way)...I thank you for your efforts with Audyssey, and respect your knowledge and expertise. I have found much of your information extremely useful and reliable.
But after my experience with Onkyo, and all the denial on their part...and the fact that they actually ignored call after call, and email after email, (Some to department heads, and supervisors), until I got the BBB involved...I am a little soured on the CE industry as a whole. (I had a similar experience with Samsung)
Hey, no worries... we all have our views. As freeride says, it's pretty much all speculation anyway. Onkyo have said nothing officially about it AFAIK.
