Have had this unit for a week now, absoulutely fantastic sound. It does however have a burning smell coming from it still. I assumed it would be there for the first couple of plays to burn off any dust, but it is still happening. Have you come across this before?

Whatever additional speakers you decide on they all have to be self-amplified.
If you want opinions you could search the web for some actual user reviews. I don't know how many of the 'experts' have any experience with that end of the line. I read a few but never found anyone who actually decided to expand on the basic unit's stereo-only capabilities.
Maybe check out Amazon for what "Customers Who Bought This Item Also Bought".
Your connection between the AR transmitter and the ONKYO receiver sounds solid. I'd guess it's the wireless speakers that are the wrong point, or at least that's what I'd look at first.
Doing a bit of research, I noticed a couple minor points.
First, these seem prone to RF interference from other RF devices. Have to tried switching channels on them?
Second, someone reported theirs would not work properly unless the speakers were turned on just before the transmitter, and turned off shortly after the transmitter. Apparently you have to hold the button on the front in for 5 seconds to turn the speakers on or off.
I know that's rather basic, but it's been a few days and no one else has responded, so I figured we should start somewhere.
Burn-in? On speakers? Never heard of it, especially for something not pretending to be sky-high esoteric and expensive, following the believing-is-seeing (or hearing) rule.
If I had to guess, I'd say you're hearing speaker buzz from stress or resonance from something in or near the speakers. Does it manifest itself at all levels, both speakers, all sources (analog and digital)?
Wild guess... are track lights present and ON when you hear the problem?
According to the manual, the sleep timer can be set to shut the unit off after a specific time. The other timers can only be used to trigger the amp to play or recored at specific times, and only if the recieiver is left in standby, otherwise the timers are ignored. There should be no reason the sleep timer does not work if you are following the procedure outlined in the manual (http://safemanuals.com/user-guide-instructions-owner-manual/ONKYO/CR-325-_E)
Sounds like the transformer or something went in the other amp. Not related to the timer issue. Both amps having the smae timer issue suggests that it is a programming issue (follow the procedure in the manual step by step), if you still cant get it to work, get it covered under warranty while you can.\
Hope this Helps
Performed the hard reset by turning on the unit prerssing the button with a square symbol and power at the same time. To tune on face must depress the arrow buttons firmly and hold for a bout 1.5 seconds, then tuning begins.
The audio amplifier in the unit has failed, and that's what you smell. Turn it off and quit using it immediately - it presents a fire hazard. It might be possible to replace the bad parts. Depending on what it cost, you might want to take it somewhere for a repair estimate, but be prepared to learn it might not be fixable. Often the burned parts damage the circuit board as well.
Usually this happens in small stereo systems because of running them at high volumes for a long time. If you want to listen to loud music, you would be better off putting the money into a higher-power system.
I have the same problem on a refurbished unit I bought 2 years ago. I read at the time that this is a common problem and you just need to send to an Onkyo service center. There are links on the Onkyo or ShopOnkyo website.
Nowdays there are CLONE type remotes available form electrical stores.
These clone type remotes carry all the codes necessary to work TV, Vdeos, CD players and other domestic sound systems.
I would suggest that you visit one of these stores and see what they have for your ONKYO system, the cost is not great and you will walk out with a complete remote for your system that will work all the other controls as well..
The stores have a fold out paper list, (thats very long) showing model and manufacturer detail for what codes you need to enter into the new remote to make it compatible wuith your ONKYO system.
