Great home theater doesn't have to break the bank. Onkyo's TX-SR606 proves how true that statement can be. This 7.1 channel receiver comes with Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD decoding for audio that sounds like what the producers had in mind. The Audyssey DynamicEQ ensures that dialogue will always be clear by dynamically adjusting the EQ settings as the volume is changed.

Eliminate cable clutter from your life with the HDMI 1080i upconverting capabilities of the TX-SR606. The Faroudja DCDi/EDGE helps to eliminate jaggies and other video artifacts that can occur when upconverting a signal. Now your picture looks better than ever.

Onkyo's CinemaFILTER technology adjusts the tonal balance of the soundtrack to take room size into account. This way the soundtrack will sound like it is supposed to and not like it’s been forced into a room two sizes too small. When coupled with the Wide Range Amplifier Technology you get a true to life sound free of amplifier noise.

3 out of 5 eggsSome issues, still nice.

Pros: It produces great sound, looks nice and well built. It does not feel as if it was cheaply made. It have a verity of features depending on what you are watching. There are settings for movies, games, TV, sports, concerts, and more. There are enough HDMI ports to connect a TV, gaming system, Blue Ray player, PC's, and pretty much anything you may be able to think of.

Cons: I found that with movies which have a lot of bombs going off, or just plain chaos it tends to be overly loud with sound effects while having hard to hear or poor dialog sound. When you want to watch a movie or show with a lot of sound effects, I found myself having to turn it up and down depending on what was going on, on screen. Example, with a film like District 9 I would have to turn it up to hear the dialog, only to jump when something explodes, or something. At which time I have to turn it down, only to have to turn it up again when dialog comes back on. I also feel the need to mention a MAJOR issue in which the HDMI ports tend to fail after a few months. I mean that I had to either switch ports, or jiggle the cord into the port by pushing it in and out until it was recognized. This was not in just one port, but many. It was a MAJOR issue, being that of the 4-5 HDMI ports all developed the same issue. I would suggest passing on this one, and go with something else with-in the same price range.

Other Thoughts: I bought this based on a friends suggestion, I will admit at first I was happy with it, however after problem, after problem cropped up I became more disappointed with it, until I reached a point where I had enough money to buy a new receiver. Granted, despite the many issues with this Receiver I ended up going with yet another Onkyo receiver. I bought the ONKYO TX-SR608 7.2-Channel Home Theater Receiver. I went with it due to its ability to support a 7.2 set up. So far it seems to be doing good, though I think its slowly starting to have the same HDMI port issues. I can only hope its the cords and not the receiver.

1 out of 5 eggsHDMI Switching Bug

Pros: Great sound, 7.2 channel, worked for close to a year!

Cons: After 10 months or so this unit started to require "warming up" before recognizing my HDMI input. It would recognize it after a couple minutes, then as time passed it would take upwards of a half hour. Now it does not recognize the HDMI input at all. Optical audio input doesn't work either.

I can use the coaxial inputs still, but that's pretty pathetic... as I have a 10 year old yamaha receiver that can do the same.

Is it worth taking in to get fixed for $300?... unfortunately no, it is not.

I checked some forums and this is a very common problem. As an engineer w/ a six sigma blackbelt, I recognize the occurrence rate of this problem negates the "lemon" excuse on this and is clear evidence of the low quality design processes employed by Onkyo Corporation. The annoying part is that the problem will likely not manifest itself until the manufacturer's warranty has expired.

Unless you want to buy a new receiver every couple of years, I must recommend staying away from Onkyo products, as they have a systematic quality issue that will likely manifest itself across all platforms that are a product of their flawed design process.

3 out of 5 eggsGood for four years

Pros: Decent unit for the first 3+ years. Runs bookshelf speakers and subwoofer and sounds nice. Enough HDMI inputs to run all my electronics. The set-up and owners manual isn't the most user friendly, but if you're willing to play around with it, you can figure it out.

Cons: Runs pretty warm. May contribute to the fact that in the last year, could no longer run a game system through it. Had Xbox ran through component inputs that video output quit on. Also, PS3 that had the same problem running through HDMI. Was my first real stereo receiver, so I was really hoping I would get a long life from it. Don't know if this is the average life span of a receiver, but if it is, I'll go cheaper from now on.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Home Theater Receiver

Pros: HDMI switching and upconversion, OSD, decoding of advanced/Blu-ray audio, selection and configurability of inputs, room setup

Cons: Just doesn't sound as rich as my old Yamaha RX-V1400.

Other Thoughts: I finally broke down and replaced my Yamaha RX-v1400. It still sounded great, but was just behind the times when it came to video and audio decoding. This Onkyo is a great value and I am thoroughly satisfied. That said, it just doesn't sound as rich and warm as my old Yamaha. The fact is that to get that warmth, the costs go way up, so it's a trade-off. All that aside, this receiver is a great value and performs well even in a full-sized dedicated home theater.

5 out of 5 eggsLove This box!

Pros: Bought this to replace my Harmon Kardon AVR 510. I spent more time removing un-needed cables than hooking this up. I have my cable DVR, My Blueray DVD and my Laptop connected and still have one more HDMI input. The laptop is networked to an "N" wireless router and pulls media from my server. The included speaker configures your speakers for optimum listening anywhere in your room. Just make sure you can have complete quiet when using. This really shows off my Polk Audio speakers. I thought they sounded good with the HK but wow, this is really nice. The remote actually works with my 47" Olevia TV which is great too.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Running 5.1 surround. Room is open on one side so not the best acoustically but still sounds great. I was very lucky and picked this up on one of the last days at Circuit City for $300.00. Great price but well worth what NewEgg charges.

5 out of 5 eggsDeffinatly worth it

Pros: flexibility, incredible video and even better audio.
I bought this to replace an aging media center I had running through an old computer. Using this is SO much easier and the difference in quality is just absurd.

Cons: No hardware/software issues to deal with leaves me feeling like there is something wrong with the world.

Other Thoughts: See Cons.

5 out of 5 eggsOverall Great Unit

Pros: Upgraded an old Sony unit, Night and Day performance, paired with Polk Audio's RM705 7.1 surround. Easy to set up. have Cable box and Xbox 360 connected via Component for video and Coax/Optical respectivly for Audio. My PS3 is connected with an HDMI and all are being fed out to my TV by a single HDMI out. All video inputs are set to "Through" becuse each device outputs 720p which is also what my TV acepts so upconversion is not needed.

Cons: The Audessey automatic equalizer setup caused a continuous "hum" in all speakers when enabled after running the automatic setup. I have read the instructions and will be attempting this setup again soon. In the mean time I manualy input the setting for the speakers myself and there is no longer any hummg just great digital sounds

Other Thoughts: The unit dosent get as hot as some people make it out, granted mine is not enclosed. The unit is fairly large, check your existing cabinit/entertainment area for fit. The instructions are very easy to follow and troubleshoot do not be intimidated.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat for HD/7.1

Pros: Has all the HDMI and 7.1 you will ever need. Runs cool, great price.

Cons: Very bulky, other models are slimming down while this one will take up all your space, in some cases not even fit in your ent. center. CHECK YOUR SPACE and measure first!
