Summary: I have bought the Onkyo Nr906 in 2009. At that time, I was looking for a great receiver to complete my home AV equipment, and was fascinated from the great video reviews the Onkyo had received. Originally I was not meant to use the onkyo on stereo mode, as I have a Gryphon Callisto 2200 as amplifier (high end danish product).
Summary: First off, I'm not a tech freak but I do consider myself above average.. I have had Blu-ray Players since the beginning of them.. I have a Sony BDP-S1 & a Sharp HP-20u.. This 906 was easier to set up than I thought it was going to be.. Hooked up my Sony Blu-Ray but couldn't get HD sound.. Called Onkyo they were great he tried to change the settings on the Sony but it still wouldn't get HD sound..
Summary: I was a bit overwhelmed at first but after a couple of hours setting everything up and getting it tuned in....This baby rocks! Completely satisfied. It is heavy as crap but it ain't crap. I replaced my bose life style with this and jbl speakers. Very tight combination. Looks great. Price is a bit steep but in this case, you get what you pay for and that is about everything.
Summary: I have had this Receiver now close to 9 Months. Through those months it has been nothing, but Spectacular! I was very hesitant in replacing my SONY ES3000 Receiver with an Onkyo. But from doing research, and with help from my brother (who has been an Onkyo fan for years) I decided to give it a try. Man, the difference in sound quality and power are night and day.
Summary: An up-to-date and excellent receiver Pros: While it has almost all current features as of 2008-2009, Onkyo TX-NR906 remains faithful to Onkyo's origin - excellent sound reproduction in stereo or surround. I thought the remote control is very functional and practical in all devices I have tried (TV, Blu-Ray player, DVR, old DVD/CD players).
Summary: After reading a lot of reviews of all the RV units on the market, I decided that TX-NR906 is the one! I am so amazed with the sound quality and all the bells and whistles. To this day, I still am learning about its dozen of features. To make it short, I am very happy with my purchase and decision. One of the things I like best is its remote control.
Summary: I did one month research and made my own conclusion this was the best product I could get for the money I was willing to spend. I was looking for enough power to drive my Paradigm Studio 100 floorstanding speakers. Well, seems like no A/V receiver has enough power to drive these, if I listen to music in "pure audio" mode and crank the sound up, the receiver shuts down. However, if I used BTL(Bridged Transless) capability it solved the problem.
Summary: It's a little early but I'm initially impressed with the sound, quality and features. If anything, I'd like to see it switch inputs faster but I don't find that to be a big deal. It is a pleasure being able to use this for a switch for all the different components.
Summary: I was looking for a receiver with all the connections needed to connect it to the world, and this Onkyo has them. I particularly wanted a network connection, HD radio, iRadio and HDMI inputs and outputs, with upwards conversion, plus a 'real' power transformer, which happens to be a torroidal type in this case, and this model featured all of what I needed. The Onkyo replaced a Yamaha RX-V2095, and was purchased over a Denon 4308 that I had been considering.
Summary: I would recommend taking a look @ all the features this receiver has to offer before making your purchase. This is a higher end receiver for much less than you would expect to pay! I would recommend calling Onkyo customer service and asking any questions you might have. They are very helpful!
