Great value receiver

ONKYO TX-SR606 7.1-Channel Black Home Theater Receiver
ONKYO TX-SR606 7.1-Channel Black Home Theater Receiver

Pros: I replaced an older onkyo receiver that I had aquired from a HTIB set. I primarily got the 606 because I wanted to take advantage of the hdmi switching for my ps3 with its blu ray playback. For this specific task it does a wonderful job. The ps3 decodes the HD lossless audio and sends it via hdmi/multi channel pcm to the receiver. The receiver then is able to play it back as it is or can matrix a 5.1 source to 7.1 through different listening modes. The 606 can also decode the HD sound formats when they are bitstreamed to it. This feature for me made the receiver more future proof since later I may get a different blu ray player or may add hdmi audio to my computer. The automatic speaker setup also worked great in comparison to the one from my older onkyo. It effectively created an audio bubble around my seating area which was very noticeable during surround sound movies and music.

Cons: The upscaling on analog video connections like my wii for instance is only ok. The receiver's upscaling also leaves a slight black bar on the left side of my TV screen when processing analog sources.

Overall Review: Newegg shipped it in 1 day as always and it got to me very promptly. Their service and speed closes in on the B&M shopping advantages.

Pros: Wow this thing is awesome. The size and brightness are astounding when you first take a look at it. The scaling is also pretty good. Theres no ghosting etc. in games either.

Cons: Nothing really... very small text is kind of hard to read.

Overall Review: Great value mine had no dead pixels.
