Recently, I've noticed a lot of posts which seem to claim that Onkyo is, at best, the Bose of Japan-- overrated, sold alongside junk, what have you. I have an Onkyo TX-SR502. It's held up, nice ergonomics, but of course, it's not HDMI 1.3 enabled. So, eventually, eventully, I could see myself getting a new receiver. That's my perspective-- and to be honest, I haven't really done much comparison shopping-- I think I bought it on the basis of stellar reviews... SO, what's wrong with Onkyo? Why are all the other receivers on the market so much better? Don't hold back-- there's plenty of mud here for everyone!
