Just had a search on 818... interestingly it was launched in 2012 and already implemented XT32. Fast forward to today, Onkyo has dropped Audyssey completely for AccuEQ. Wonder why Onkyo dropped XT32, or Audyssey for that matter.
Because they want to save money on licensing fees..

The component that fails is often the power circuitry, notably capacitor.

How's Class D able to last longer than Class A/B, other than the former would save electricity but inferior SQ than the latter ?

Hm, get a Class D AVR e.g Pioneer if you want it to last longer ?

Since class D runs cooler than A/B I'm thinking it might last longer.

Even the AVR components don't fail, the technology will get outdated. Usually the AVR lifetime is about 5-10 yr, with the newer interface like eARC, HDMI 2.xx, 4K or even 8K in the future.

What's the typical lifespan of AVRs now?
越做越頂唔耐。。。我屋企兩架飛利浦影音擴音機用到宜傢十幾年除佐遙控反應遲鈍之外,基本上其它功能都無問題。仲勁過喇叭添!

I prefer to buy locally because of warranty coverage. Also, I've read that Onkyo is not great with reliability. Yamaha is quite good and so are Marantz and Denon. Onkyo may offer good value, but I want a receiver that will keep working properly for a long time.
TBH nothing can really last for long time in AVR as new Audio format and new Video format always keep popping up and also new HDMI format too.
