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: Has two HDMI inputs one out to monitor just what the doctor ordered! However you have to use an s-video cable to monitor for the on screen setup display. Why? that is the biggest problem with this receiver. Sounds great easy to set up with auto configure.
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'm not an audiophile or videophile, but I'm quite pleased with this Onkyo receiver. It had enough inputs, power and other features to satisfy me on paper and I haven't been disappointed. Like other reviewers, I've noticed it runs very hot.
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 . 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 receiver is excellent. I just received it and it was a breeze to setup. Sounds amazing with my in wall speakers. The codes for Directv don't work at all. No problem, I will purchase a Logitech Harmony remote. I researched this product for months before deciding to go with this one.
