So... life was good until you added the Onkyo. Seems that might be the source of the problem.
Now, having said that, you might have an impedance mismatch between the Onkyo and the amp. The Onkyo is a receiver, yes? How does it manage line output/volume control to a power amp? . Perhaps a tube buffer would help?

Facts of life......an AVR is a piss poor substitute for a dedicated pre amp, even a crappy Yamaha.
Political Correctness...defined

A doctrine fostered by a delusional, illogical minority and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.
