I had a Yamaha RX-V667 receiver that I purchased brand new.
It turned out to be a lemon.
Had nothing but problems with it from day one.

On an audio website it was discussed that 50% of Onkyos are defective. They say you can Google this and it will verify the stat.

Had a Denon for 10 years, no problems.

Bought a new 2312CI this Spring, works and sounds great.
