My experience with the Q90r
We are renovating our den/media room and I wanted to simplify my setup. Based on reviews, I had high hopes for replacing my 12 year old Onkyo HTIB with this bar. I got a "Certified Open Box" from Best Buy (probably a mistake).
Got our den back yesteday, and set up the bar. The ATMOS clip of Jain's "Makeaba" was amazing, but I was unhappy with the way it handled the audio from YouTubeTV. Noticed the sub dropped out, and decided to apply the firmware update.
Applied the update, and from that point on, the right surround speaker apparently is bricked. There are NO lights on the back when plugged in. Swapped power cables, left it unplugged for a long time and tried again, pressed the ID set button FOREVER. Nothing seems to bring it back to life.
Any ideas? I'm not sure I would have been happy with it, but I wanted to tweak it and give it a fair trial. Very disappointed that I didn't get to do that.
