Recently, however, I ran into a huge problem. Being as it's getting cold, somehow I ended up with a mouse in the house that I didn't know of. I've never had this issue, so it was a surprise to me when watching a movie at a pretty high volume, suddenly, the sound stopped, Check Speaker came on the screen and two loud pops, complete with bright flashes and smoke.
Apparently, Sr. Mouse decided to crawl behind my TV/Audio stand and chew through some wire. It was the surround left channel. Remember, it was at a high volume, so I'm assuming the protection circuit wasn't tripped fast enough and it blew the amp channel for the rear left. This is a disappointment as any unit I've had in the past was very quick to trip. I can repair the unit myself, however, a call to Onkyo repair and support resulted in me speaking with a person completely ignorant as to what a MosFet or Transistor was. He didn't have the schematics available nor did he try to locate them for me to get a part number. His only goal was to sell me a whole new board at close to $300. Not going to happen when I can fix it for the cost of parts an maybe an hour of my time.
My other complaint is their firmware "upgrades". It seems to remove options, like Spotify. Yes, Spotify is still there, however, you have to stream from another device using spotify to the TX-NR828, which is rediculous considering when Spotify was a built in option, I could simply use the remote to navigate leaving my phone of tablet out of the picture.
Other that these issues, I love this unit. It should have went into protection, but didn't, but my home theater sounds better than most up to date movie theaters so when I watch a movie, this unit does NOT disappoint.
The Onkyo set-up and performance is flawless. I've pretty much maxed out its potential with BD, Satellite, Streaming music apps, turntable, reel to reel tape, ... using both digital and analog connectivity as needed.
Due to my multiple connections and being picky on the customized settings, set-up took a total of 3 hours (including programming remotes, using speaker optimization process, etc), but was very straight forward and easy as long as you follow the instructions methodically.
I saw some reviews that complained about longevity of these, so I'll leave 4 stars and up it to 5 stars if it keeps working as perfectly as it has been the past two weeks.
Now this is the one I want to keep forever and never have to replace.
I'm revising my 4 stars to 5 stars now after a few weeks of use. It is great!!!
