First: I'm new to the forum and not an AV pro (I am an educated technical professional, for what that's worth, however) Several years ago I decided to build a quality (yet affordable) AV system at home. I know this isn't high end stuff (relatively speaking), but I purchased an Onkyo TX-SR607 receiver and Polk speakers (models irrelevant for the purposes of this post). Last year, a set of component video inputs on the receiver died. I didn't lose much sleep over it, as they were rarely used and the receiver was already out of warranty anyway. This year, my HDMI I/O starting getting flaky. It began with very intermittent video glitches, and just gradually got worse to the point this fall where the receiver was not usable to route video (audio was fine). After doing some research, it appears many people have had this problem. I took the receiver to a local, Onkyo-certified repair facility. They want $326 for the repair, which includes replacement of the HDMI board. The repair shop says Onkyo supposedly improved the boards, but that the board still only carries a 3 month warranty from Onkyo. So, I need to make a decision. Spend $326 to get it fixed (didn't cost much more than that BRAND NEW), with a risk that it will die again in a couple of years, or buy something else new and use the Onkyo as an audio receiver only. But I'm hesitant to buy anything else new at this point. When I decided to buy the Onkyo, I thought they had a good reputation and reviews. I'm worried that if I change to another brand I may get similarly burned as soon as the warranty expires. What happened to quality products?? Any suggestions (based on real, long term experience) on a quality, modern AV receiver that won't require a second mortgage on my house? I welcome everyone's feedback. Thanks!
