I bought the Onkyo TX-SR502 receiver less than a year ago and so far I've experienced only 1 strange problem with it. After a few hours of listening to music at 30-40% volume the receiver started clicking continuously, turning itself on and off repeatedly. I think it's called clipping, but why would it do that at such low volume after only a few short hours?
On Ebay and many online stores they have massive amounts of Bstock and refurbished Onkyo TX-SR502 receivers for sale. many people report about their units failing on them after a few months. I panicked and am currently selling mine on Ebay so I can get a Pioneer VSX-D814K or VSX-D914K or maybe even a Kenwood VR-806. Anything must be better than an Onkyo model.
So my question is how is it possible for the Onkyo TX-SR502 to be one, if not THE MOST, best-selling receiver on the market if it is such a piece of un-reliable, worthless crap?
