Well, I am just posting to help new receivers buyers. Make my bad experience your gain, brother. Just go with some other brand. And not ONKYO. its been year in a half I am trying to get my $700 receiver fixed. After 6 month of use, It would shut off sound all the sudden and won't be back for 20 minutes. Contacted ONKYO, and sent it out to authorized service center (shipping cost $55) 10 days later comes back with no work order, nothing. I said I don't care as long as it works. Plugged it in, and no sound wasn't fixed. Contacted ONKYO, after sending my invoice, they said, they won't help,since its initially shipped to my work address, it could be used for commercial purposes therefore warranty would be only for 90 days for commercial use. I told them I own that company and all my shipments comes to my work.. The whole chain of mail conversation is so senseless you wouldn't believe. She asked me why I used the company card and shipped to company.. My goodnees.. Here is the exact wording about their policy. "Products used continuously or for commercial applications are not covered with long term warranty. Onkyo products are intended for consumer use and are not designed for continuous or commercial use. In the event that the products concerned have been used commercially or continuously, the warranty period is limited to 90 days from the date of purchase. " I could not proved that It was in my home for personal use and not in my shop. Since its shipped to my shop, they considered commercial use. Its just another trick from onkyo to not to fix my $700 receiver that got broke in 6th months. Seems like, Onkyo products are not designed for continuous use and they are not commercial grade. A sales person did not warn me about these limitations of this brand. Also If it’s been shipped to company name, it could be considered to used commercially and could not be honored warranty after 90 days ???? I think consumers should be aware of that. What do you think? I will be happy to email whole e-mail conversation if anyone interested to see it..
