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: In general, I am very satisfied with this receiver. My main disapointment: Not being able to use the 'late night' sound compression feature with an external XM tuner (Delphi SkyFi) or other analog sources.
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.
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 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: 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 .
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: 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.
