I'm hoping someone else can provide context to how long a repair typically takes, as it seems mine is getting excessive.
I purchased a 5.1 surround sound system and Onkyo 7.2 AV receiver. A few months later, speakers went on sale and I decided to purchase the rest of the set to have a full 7.2 system. When I brough the speaker home, we quickly realized that one of the last 2 channels for the speaker was broken, and would not send any signal to the speaker. We went through several troubleshooting steps to ensure it was indeed the receiver, and not the newly purchased speaker.
The receiver is under warranty, so I brought it in the next morning on July 11th, 2020, and was told the estimated date of completion would be July 29th, 2020. It supposedly didn't arrive to the repair center until July 25th at 9:22am. By July 25th at 10:11am, it was already identified that a part was broken, and they ordered parts for my repair.
Today is 8/19/2020. There have been no updates and my order status still shows as "Parts Ordered". It has been nearly 6 weeks since I brought it in, and nearly 3 1/2 weeks since it was supposed to be back. At this point, it's feeling like there's no progress or end in site.
This is my first time ever writing a complaint online for service, as I understand things can happen, but it's starting to reach a point where it's a bit ridiculous. I purchased all these speakers and equipment within the last 4 months, and they're now just sitting there useless in my living room. I'm mostly just frustrated that I was so excited to test everything out and have an upgrade, and ended up with no working speakers since the AV receiver is gone after spending thousands of dollars all in for the setup.
