Summary: After reading a glowing review of this receiver in Home Theater magazine, I checked the price on Amazon.com. I was lucky enough to get here on the day that Vann's was selling out their stock for $697 each.
Summary: I purchased an Onkyo TX-SR608 last year (along with various DT and Polk speakers) under the idea that I would make upgrades to my system each year. The Onkyo has been having increasing issues where it cuts out briefly (like a reboot) and comes back on.
Summary: So I've been running the 6006 for about a day now and I felt that I should report on my initial findings since I myself like to hear what other people are saying when making such a big purchase.
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.
Summary: This is a good piece of gear for the price range. With new Marantz models recently released, this one drops in price but the quality stays. I used to have and highly enjoyed vintage Marantz gear from the 1970s in the past, and those were extremely clear sounding and powerful.
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...
Fantastic Sounding, Feature Rich, Rock Solid, what more do you want?

Summary: First, let me say that this is a wonderful A/V Receiver. I agree with all of the positive reviews as per the sound quality and features. I purchased this to replace my Denon 3803. However there is one thing you need to be aware of if, like me, you do not use or cannot use HDMI Connections.
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.
