A true workhorse. It's the best Onkyo 6 series ever & I still have it.

Summary: The good: 1) Superb build & finish for a budget A/V receiver. The newer Onkyo 6 series does not feel so heavy / solid. 2) Plenty of inputs including - optical, digital coaxial, analogue & HDMI (1.1), truly impressive for a 2007 budget model. I'm still able to use it. Lol.
Summary: Pros: Very easy to uses, good input/output. I hooked it up with JBL L830, polk csi3 center speaker, and Polk PW305 woofer. The system sound marvelous. Receiver makes those speakers sound so good. The receiver produces the power that it lists. Great receiver for the price that you pay.
It's solid and great but HDMI is slightly limited.

Summary: Everything works great. I don't have any weird noises and think that it is nearly silent when just in the "on" position. I have only a couple of complaints from my research and using it. Onkyo does not in general have support for HDMI on Zone 2.
Summary: I have had this unit for about two weeks. It replaced a Sony 5.1 channel unit that did not support HDMI inputs and outputs. I have coupled it with the Toshiba HD-A20 high definition DVD player Toshiba HD-A20 HD DVD Player . Basically, set up was very easy.
Summary: I went through hell hooking this thing up. It's not the amp, it's the nature of home entertainment systems in general. There are many different pathways that the signal can progress through the system, the old screw in video lines, the 3-RCA jack composite, HDMI, etc.
Summary: A very good A/V for your first home entertainment system. Sounds good (if you buy good speakers, and have a good incoming signal), and does contain two HDMI inputs for a DVD/HD Cable/Blue-ray etc .
Summary: Impress with the unit. It accomplished what I was looking for in a received at a reasonable price. Only set back is only one (1) power connection for other units attached to the receiver. Instruction manual not to clear on how to use all the features.
Summary: This is a good receiver for the money and I purchased it after doing a fair amount of research. However, if you are going to use this with HDMI be warned that the unit 'clicks' quite a few times as it negotiates the proper HDMI signal from the component to the TV.
Summary: I like this receiver I am using it with polk speaker RM6900. I wanted to have 4 audio/video input, on screen display, auto speaker setup, and HDMI input. I knew that it doesn't do upconvert to HDMI, however I don't care of running one more cable to the TV.
