Default Why do Onkyos seem to keep breaking??

Well, once again something is awry with my Onkyo 706. I cant get any audio or video unless I switch to the tuner, but then after a few moments I get a loud painful pop that clips out the receiver and shuts it down. This is the second time this unit has had an issue and my 3rd Onkyo to go bad. I think Im done with Onkyo. Theres no excuse to have issues like this, especially for the money we pay. Any ides what may be wrong?

Yeh, Im definitely making a switch. Im tired of this. I havent looked at the market in a few years, so I dont know what new models are out now. Who sells Denon and Marantz and can you suggest a few models in the $400-$700 range?

All high powered Electronic components require ample air movement to keep them cool and running properly.
Checkout Denon 1913ci

I hear you we the consumer pay out big $$ for a product and then have problems. Yes it sucks big time.

A little story;

Years ago when I worked at a Dealership in the service dept. we had a TV on and it happened to be on a channel talking about "disasters" and this customer was really giving me a hard time about his little POS Ford Escort having problems
when the guy on the TV program talked about things costing millions of dollars and having problems it showed the the Space Shuttle Challenger blowing up after launch . I just told the guy everything has problems look at what the one Shuttle Challenger cost and it blew up . Nothings perfect ....

I've only had my Onkyo NR515 now 2 months, knock on wood, the only problem I've had is about every 5th - 6th time I go turn it on with the remote it doesn't come on , I have to walk over to the unit and push the power button.
Not a very good "cool factor" when you have friends over and showing off your system and it happens... lol

I had my old Yamaha RX-V595 receiver for something like 12-14 years and never had a single problem even had it stored in 3 different storage units for 5 of those years and when I hooked it back up worked perfect.

The only reason I got the Onkyo was for the HDMI ...

Good luck on whatever you choose !!

Denon's quality is excellent but, as with any electrical product nothing can be guaranteed perfect, problems happen but to a lesser degree with Denon especially VS Onkyo. many years ago I had a Marantz the 4470 series, that was in the mid 70's and it is still working my friends (whom I gave it to in the 80's) son has it in college.

Simple answer to the threads question. Onkyo's run HOT, real HOT. You need to make sure it has enough room for ventilation.
My Onkyo 605 stopped working a few months ago, it powered on fine, it looked for the signal fine, it fines the signal fine, but just no sound, no matter what I did.
After not using it for several months its working again. Now I am paying attention to itís heat output. Iíve given it a lot of ventilation and I am in the process of installing an external silent fan in about 2 weeks time.
Anyhow thank goodness its working, because really did not want to buy another receiver. Though my next choice would have been a Pioneer, they sounds and look great and they run COOL.

Thanx for all the input yall. I went with the Denon 1913. Its a very simple easy receiver. I really like the network functions. However, I wish companies would make 2 HDMI outputs instead of just one. Everytime i want to watch a movie on the projector, I have to reach behind the receiver and swith the flat screen out with the projector.

They do and I have one but they are typocally flagship models or upper echelon tier models not entry level models and the vast majority of dual hdmi out units are Onkyos.

Why not simply buy a splitter from monoprice ? and eliminate the swapping problem ?

Rizz, I tried the splitter route and had no success. Granted it was ~3-4 yrs ago and things may have changed - probably a hdcp issue as either unit worked individually on the splitter but when both plugged in neither one worked. A powered switch may work best in the OP's case if a simple splitter doesn't; unless of course, he needs both displays active at once.

They also sell a IR remote controlled powered switching device, which is also operational with a universal remote like the Harmony units.
