You don';t have to search forums very hard to read about the huge Onkyo warranty/quality debacle with their HDMI boards and (I think) other issues. I've read many posts from people who got "good will" warranty support for an AVR failure only have the repaired/replaced unit fail [at a later date; a year or two later] and Onkyo does NOT offer further warranty support. I had a situation like that with Sony in the 90s, and will never buy from them, ever again.
I'm not just concerned about the quality of their components, I question a company that restricts how long they support a customer who is clearly suffering from the company's poor QC. When customers start leaving the brand in droves, that brand is in a downward spiral IMHO.
Onkyo may offer great feature sets, but with their warranty issues, I'd steer clear.
Several members have recommended Marantz and Pioneer AVRs, I would research those.
