I want the 705 over the 605 for the following reasons:
100 vs. 90 watt per channel
THX Select2 certification
3 DSPs vs. unspecified number
3 vs. 2 HDMI inputs
7.1 pre outs vs. subwoofer out only
AudysseY MultEQ XT vs. Audyssey 2EQ
But I have some concerns/questions.
- Does the 705 have a lot of issues from owners like the 605 (buzzing noise, issues with some HDMI inputs not working properly, etc.)?
- I keep hearing how horrible Onkyo's support is. 1+ hour hold times, unfriendly tech representatives. Is this overexaggerated or true?
- I am worried about having an issue with the 705 and either not being able to return it to manufacturer, or being able to but having all sorts of shipping fees, etc.
- I would most likely buy off eBay since I can get a slightly cheaper price than any other place. Would you recommend saving the money versus buying it at a local store that you can easilly return it to if it has issues?
