7.62. Utilizing your logic, I should not believe what you are saying then. I did read reviews from other sites like Crutchfield and a couple other resellers of the unit and it appears to be a big problem with people that purchase it from Amazon. Much less so from other sources. Problem right now is that it is no longer readily available brand new and it would appear it is being phased out by Onkyo. Amazon still has it for sale in new condition but Crutchfield does not nor Best Buy.
