I've been on here recently discussing the problem with my Onkyo TX-SR805 and was inclined to not spend a penny more than $150 to repair it with the reliability questions on this receiver. So my buddies shop is looking at the receiver. His employee called me the other day and said the front left channel was completely out. It'd be about $275 for repairs. I talked to my buddy today who owns the shop who said he'd do it for $190. I'm inclined for $190 to fix it. Don't you think? My guess is I'm mostly paying for parts and very little labor here. I kind of wavered on it, and my buddy said I'd be VERY hard pressed to come up with a receiver with the same sonic abilities that approached my 805 for less than $1,400 today. Granted, it may have some features that I don't really care much about (network audio, etc). The only thing I WISH it did was 3D pass through. I considered just selling the 805 as it would work great as a pre-pro or keeping it and buying an amp to connect to it, or even going with something like this and buying an extended warranty: http://www.accessories4less.com/make-a-store/item/DENAVR891/DENON-AVR-891-7.1-Channel-105W-A/V-1.4-3D-Ready-Receiver/1.html or http://www.accessories4less.com/make-a-store/item/DENAVR2311CI/DENON-AVR-2311CI-7.2-3D-Home-Theater-Receiver/1.html realizing full well the AMP sections on those two receivers are inferior to the Onkyo. For $190 I'm inclined to fix it.
