Wow..it's quite an upclass audio system during the 90s! There was a shop selling this brand at Centrepoint shopping centre though, think it's Ong's Audio!

Sad. My first AVR was a champagne gold color Onkyo, pre-HDMI era


Seems like they sold their A/V business to Voxx and Sharp

That’s what the news state
The company sold its core home audiovisual business to Sharp and U.S.-based Voxx International and its earphones and headphones business to an investment fund, both in September. A joint venture between Sharp and Voxx is expected to continue using the Onkyo brand.

It's really unfortunate.
Just when they were making way better AVRs in 2021 with Dirac and HDMI 2.1 ports that were actually working.
But they have been in debt for quite some time and it was already too late for Onkyo by the time this great AVR came out.
