If the NR626 was introduced in mid-2013, how can someone own this “exact” device for longer than it existed? I’ve been looking for a newer AV receiver for quite some time and this had all the features I wanted – especially Wi-Fi, phono (yes, some of us LP-lovers are still alive) and internet radio apps. The NR616 had too many reported problems with HDMI ports for me to consider but after months of research I have decided that, although the 626 “looks” similar to the 616 and other Onkyo’s, there has been enough internal hardware changes for me to take a chance that this newer model won’t have the plethora of hardware failures as was unfortunately common in the past. FYI, I paid full retail on a new NR626 less than a week ago and, so far, it rocks. Hope this one lasts another 20 years!
