"From the Sony STR to the Onkyo 7.1 THX this unit rocks!"
10 May 2010
Pros: It's everything you want in a Receiver and more.
Cons: Lack of Optical Input, If it was me I would match 1 to1 HDMI to Optical. Instead you get 4 HDMI and 2 Optical. This beauty is heavy. It will be smart to purchase a small fan to help cool, she runs HOT You get what you pay for and you pay...
Summary: This is one excellent A/V Receiver. The only down side that I've encountered thus far is it runs HOT... Your really going to need an external fan blowing on it keep it cool. I'm pushing 6- Bose BLACK double cube speakers - series IV and Bose VCS10 Center Channel, to make up the 7.1 (AR 15" Sub-woofer). My friends, it just doesn't get any better than this. My neighbors keep me informed on how well the speakers are working, LOL. A bit pricey but what can I say.
Pros: Accurate Controls, Clean Sound, Durable, Good Power
Summary: I had purchased a set of JBL E100B speakers some time ago and my old AV receiver though rated at 100W per channel just didn't seem to drive the speakers adequately. When I hooked up the 906 to my system turned it on and played some music my first though was WOW! that's how these sprekers are suppose to sound! Receiver sound fantastic and the video upconversion for regular DVD's works beautifully!
