Sounds Great When It Works
 
Of the 10 receivers I've owned over the decades, this is the best one for controlling sound (and video in this case). But, there are some of these models that have a known deficiency with the power module that could have disastrous consequences. Here are the symptoms; the remote stops working with no control of the power. Then other buttons fail, but the receiver still works with the front panel buttons - Onkyo technical service will tell you it is the remote. A couple of days later the receive...

Excellent room correction, great AVR so far!
 
This is a cross post of my review on AVSforums, a discussion thread is also over there about this AVR and my experiences thus far. Also, there are some pics of my install and of the OSD for this device (which I could not find anywhere), including the HDMI overlay:[...]Unfortunately, the first one I purchased from Amazon (warehouse deals) was bad, it has a hiss/click in the 2 front speakers. They were great doing the return, and sent me another one that; so far, has been...

Awesome receiver.
 
I decided to go with Onkyo after having a Pioneer Elite (VSX-92XH) that lived most of its life at a repair facility more than on my home theater stand. I conferred with several people who own Onkyo equipment, one of whom has a high-end Klipsch setup, as well as read many reviews on their latest line of high end products (TX-NR1008, 3008 and 5008) before deciding to purchase the TX-NR3008. I made the right choice. For the money, you get many more features and power out of Onkyo than you would wit...

Powerful amp and excellent room correction
 
I bought this receiver over other brands because of its rated power of 140 W, bi-amp and BTX capabilities, and Audyssey MultEQ XT32 room correction.At a price tag of under $2k, this is probably the most powerful receiver, and it has 9 channels of it. The hefty weight of 55 lbs is probably the proof, and looking through its cover, the transformer is HUGE -- more huge than that in my old 50-lb Denon.Among the many models that I looked at, Onkyo is the only brand that offers...

Not for everyone
 
I have been using a Yamaha DSP-A1 HT amp for 10+ years. It supports 7.1 channels when everyone else was making 5.1 channel receivers. The 2 additional channels are positioned as "front wide". So the 7 speakers in my family room are arranged to have have 3 in the front (left/right/center) and the other 4 placed close to the 4 corners. Yamaha's own Cinema DSP processing enhances the standard Dolby/DTS 5.1 sound and the improvement is readily audible. In recent years, other brands have added more...

Don't buy Onkyo - issues out of box & horrible support
 
I bought an Onkyo TX-NR3008, it worked for about 2hrs then went into Standby mode and I couldn't do anything with it. Screen went blank, no audio, no video, no response at all except a Standby light on top left. I called Onkyo support, they told me they can't do anything and to bring it to an authorized repair shop. There is only one authorized repair shop in all NJ which is an hour from my house. I took it there, after 2 weeks they told me Onkyo sent wrong parts and I had to wait longer. T...

Had issues at first, but after Onkyo addressed issues the receiver is awesome!
 
As others have commented, this is a great receiver- when it works. I purchased the first one in May, and enjoyed it for almost 30 days when it started to lock up, and I could not change anything via the front panel or remote. Even removing power would not work. I missed the 30 day window at Amazon but I returned it and received some credit. Because it sounded so good I purchased another of the same model, thinking it was a one time event. Apparently not. It is now about 45 days and the new recei...

Defective after 6 months / Buy at your own risk
 
I purchased this receiver back in February and it is now malfunctioning. It appears this model and others manufactured in late 2010 are defective so purchase at your own risk. I will add that Onkyo is paying for shipping to have this "refurbished" when they were aware of the issue to begin with. I now have to wait 3-4 weeks to get my receiver back and hope that further damage has not been done. I am furious that defective units were/are aloud to be sold here instead of being recalled with correc...

Known Problem with this Receiver
 
The TX-NR3008 and other "high-end" receivers from Onkyo have issues. See the FAQ on Onkyos web site. I am out of the Amazon return period and am having to return to a service center for who knows have long. I called OneCall about the issue and they knew nothing about it. They should not be selling these receivers.The bottom line is do not buy from Onkyo.
