Hello. I've just joined this website and I'm a bit of a novice when it comes to home theater systems such as av receivers. I'm interested in getting the Onkyo TX-NR646 av receiver but I've read on numerous websites that Onkyo receivers have a lot of technical issues such as HDMI board problems and other hardware failures. I live in Fiji and the only brand the store sells is Onkyo brand receivers which they import from a company in New Zealand. The Onkyo TX-NR646 costs $1650 in Fiji and that's the only cheapest 7.2 channel receiver they have. They also sell Wharfedale speakers which are compatible with the Onkyo receivers. I wanted to know if people living in New Zealand have had any technical issues such as HDMI board problems and hardware failures with their Onkyo TX-NR646 or any other models. If any of you guys have had no problems with the Onkyo receiver for over a year then let me know. I would really appreciate it if you could help me.
