    Are you the original owner?
    Do you have the original purchase receipt?
    How can the condition be described?
    Are there any marks or blemishes?
    Please could you add detailed pictures to the thread.
    Has it had the board changed as part of the replacement program?
    Onkyo Customer Care
    If not does it suffer from any of the symptoms? (Loss of Audio/Network Connection)
    Has it been used in a smoking or non smoking home?

    Thanks

    I'll have to look and see if I can find a receipt for it. Its never missed a beat since day one, no HDMI issues at all but I've never used the network connection. The amp is in as new condition, barring the usual odd mark around the hdmi inputs. Its been well ventilated and used in a smoke and pet free home, dust cleaned on a weekly basis. I'll put some pictures up after work this evening.

    Just for clarification, I've not had anything changed on the AVR, but I've never had reason too question its operation.

    I didn't find the receipt in afraid, but I've had the unit for just less than a year. I've been the only owner as well.

    Shame that you can't find receipt. Wouldn't normally bother me but due to the known issues and that this model and it was drastically reduced to clear them out.
    If it did develope a fault I wouldn't be able argue the sales of goods act to get it repaired FOC with Onkyo as I wouldn't be able to prove the original purchase price.

    Worth the risk for someone at the right price though, good luck with the sale

    Someone did previously post a link showing that all you need is the units serial number, but it got deleted for reasons beyond my meagre comprehension. As I said previously, my unit has performed flawlessly from day one and has exhibited non of the issues sighted.

    To be honest, I'm not bothered if it doesn't sell, its too good a piece of kit to let go for silly money, ill simply give it to a family member or use it in a second system. Still open to offers though, and thanks for your interest.

    They were never cleared out due to any technical issues, they just came down when the next model year became available which is usual for most kit and makers.

    The hdmi issue is a known problem for many of the Onkyo range and there is a program in place that if your model is effected it will be replaced FOC with or without receipt till 2018.

    These amps were last priced around £450 IIRC and a great bargain at that price especially considering they had Audyssey XT32 the 828 and subsequent models did not have it which was a backward step as far as customers were concerned so this receiver at around £400 is still regarded as a bargain.

    Thanks for the info. My price of £400 was just a shot in the dark based on the retail price of £600 at clear out and it being less than a year old. I've seen it for sale elsewhere at £350 so would welcome offers around that.

    Good point made by kbfern with the extended warrenty but that only covers certain serials for certain problems but would help if you could check your serial on the link and confirm if it qualifies

    If it deosn't qualify it means that it doesn't have the faulty HDMI board in it and was made after 2012...so there will be no problems with it anyway.

    Like I say, I've never had any issues with my unit, if I had I would have had it sorted as my tolerance for such things is very low (had issues with my brand new 875).
