FOR TEAM RE:ONKYO TX NR 818 REVIEW.
Was thinking of buying one of these but noticed in reviewers notes day 2 you say there was a background noise
which was eliminated by using source direct mode,could uou elaborate on this.
I had on Onkyo 876 some years back but sent it back because of static noise coming from 4 of the 5 speakers.
In another magazine review the 608 and 609 when reviewed were also found to have a static noise problem.
Also there is various comments as to the same on various internet threads.
Also in day to day use watching tv, direct mode would be of no use as this would revert to straight stereo,
Was going to buy one of these but would like your opinion if posible.
Thanks in advance.
