Summary: Had mine for a month and I am very happy with the receiver- all functions work as they should despite some of the complaints I`ve seen online about Air Play- I guess the latest firmware upgrades must have solved that or else this was home network setup issue. It is musical and running it through a pair of PSB Alphas as front speakers, the sound equals the performance of a PM5004- then again, these are not high end units so better quality may tell more of a difference...
Summary: I bought my SR6006 in July of 2012. When I first ran the speaker set up test (using the included mic), the unit shut down 3/4 of the way through the test...there after, approximately once a week, the unit would shut down after 30 min or less of use. The back left corner on the top of the unit would be incredibly hot to the touch. I was on the road for work quite a bit during this period but finally had time to resolve this troubling situation.
Fantastic Sounding, Feature Rich, Rock Solid, what more do you want?
17 December 2012
Summary: Pros:Excellent sound, great video, super features, music streaming capabilities, Audyssey XT Con's: A little complicated to get everything working properly, if you're not electronically inclined, pay someone! I've had Denon, Onkyo, Anthem receivers all cost around $1000 and this one sounds, subjectively, better than all of them.
Summary: I bought this receiver to replace a Pioneer Elite receiver because I wanted 3D capability. The receiver was set up without any problems. All aspect of the functionality of the receiver (sound and picture pass through) is working quite well. I must say I can't really tell any difference in sound or picture from my old Pioneer Elite, but the 3D function works quite well.
Summary: I got my SR6006 on closeout at Best Buy for $240. I had to order a remote, and the Audyssey Mic, and got the 4 Year Black Tie. I have $340 invested in it completely. I would have paid $1,000 for it, now that I heard it. My older Infinity Towers sound new, my surround is incredible, and I am pleased in every way! On closeout, this is an incredible deal. At regular price, it is still a solid purchase.
Summary: I have been keeping an eye on this receiver for the longest time. I didn't have the money to spend on it full price, but with the discount going on, I knew I had to jump on it before it sold out. I wish I could have afforded this sooner. What an amazing receiver! All the reviews are correct! For the price, this fine piece of electronics can not be beat. The sound is so warm and musical.
Summary: This is my first review of a product but this A/V receiver is so incredible I had to write something. I would really give this a 4.5/5 but I cant so im going with the later of a 5. Now there are some Pro's and Con's so im going to start with the con's and for me there were very little and nothing to deduct a full star for. First off I picked mine up at the local big box store for clearance price of amazing $519.
Summary: UPDATE Nov 2013 - Still love the sound, but it's been in the shop for warranty repair twice. First time was because of a software glitch. Second time was for another software glitch and the HDMI board gone bad. The repair tech told me HDMI boards are sensitive no matter the brand of receiver (the one in my Integra went out twice before I dumped it, and once in my Panasonic flatscreen, so I tend to believe him).
Summary: Returned this itemv after 2 weeks. Front usb did not seem to be working properly. Also volume seemed to fluctuate when listening to music Also had ahard time seeing small porthole display. Yes you can use the on screen display but that means having my large plasma tv on. Also this receiver is missing other internet music optios such as Spotify an Slacker.
