Thank you, I will have to figure out how to configure it that way over the weekend and test it. I am starting to get used to the sound and not notice it as much.

I just happened to notice strictly by accident that the company that owns the Onkyo/Pioneer brands filed for bankruptcy on May 13. It seems the convoluted ownership is downplaying the whole thing and they will continue to be offered, however, what happens with these companies going forward is anyone's guess and ultimately, it will be the potential customer who determines whether or not there will be a future for the brands.

Totally! Like Blackberry.

The North American custom sales channels for these brands has been in shambles for years. They are a race to the bottom commodity product now. ie. costco/bestbuy brand. Too bad. The click is a power limiting cct btw. Similar issue in review at ASR.

I tried to get a line on products a few years ago and was told dont bother….

Edit. Just heard from one of our foreman that ordered a RZ50 back in November! Still no show. Told him get refund stat. Not good.

So yeah……

We ordered a new dishwasher in February as ours is having more issues than i care to keep fixing. Were thinking a bit ahead to buy before it dies.
Expected arrival date, sometime later this month (May). Yes, 3+ months to receive a new appliance.
Things are very very slow.
If no inventory, you have to wait for literally it to be built and shipped, most often from oversees.
Crazy times.

Hah so the next night after I setup the replacement AV, it wanted me to do the first time setup a second time, which is a little weird. When I went to run the EARC connection setting part of it, the new AV just stopped connecting to the TV and wont run the initial setup for it anymore. Anytime I try to setup the AV, it wont connect via EARC. Tried to reset it, but its no longer working. Glad I didn't send back the original unit I had yet as that one is working just fine. Haven't tried to limit the frequency on the speakers yet though.

Buyer beware on the TX-NR6050 Onkyo.

Yikes! I take back what I said about the value of that model. Eblack, that model may have the dreaded HDMI board problem. Your first unit's HDMI board may go on you at any time.

Based on a preponderance of the data you presented, I judge that model to be a POS. Ditch it!

That or Onkyo's QC is not what it used to be ... guess we can take our pick based on the thin data we have ...

- Marketing dictating a price at which engineering needs sacrifice quality.
- engineering did a shit design job
- Manufacturing is cutting corners (Internal or Contract manufactures need to overseen)
- which brings us back to QC not flagging that the units are not working coming off the line ...

Or you are very very unlucky ... smile

That is IT! In protest to support Eblack, I'll be flattening my Onk with my 10 lb sledge followed by a ceremonial ignition in my firepit.

This is certainly unfortunate.
Run it through warranty if possible. Return if you can.
Sell if it gets fixed.
Buy something else.

Knowing that Onkyo was 'falling behind' a few others on features and quality (small items but significant and enough to note), is one of the reasons i went with a Denon this time.
