Great sound quality, frustating feature limitations

Jeff Chambers, Amazon
27 December 2008
  • Summary: I purchased this receiver to replace a five year old Sony. The sound is amazing but there are several strange feature constraints. Strengths: -Excellent sound quality -Intuitive auto speaker setup using the included remote microphone -On-screen setup is a nice feature that's usually not included in this price range -720p up-scaling for composite and component inputs look great -HDMI output video quality is excellent - comparable to a direct connect between the TV and...

Good price - couple of sore spots

$Bill, Amazon
12 June 2008
  • Summary: Firstly, got a great price for the unit a $332 and free shipping. This unit has a couple of problems for me though: 1) there is no switched power receptacle for the sub-woofer to plug in (hence sub-woofer stays on all the time); 2) unit distorts picture from analog VCR when fast forwarding making it hard to know when you get to your spot (skipping commercials etc); 3) unit seems to delay the signal enough to create echoes when you turn on a TV to the same channel; 4)...

Pretty good, but component video switching is terrible.

JP, Amazon

  • Summary: I've been a longtime Onkyo fan, and when my TX-DS575 receiver which I bought in 2000 died from a power surge I decided to stick with a product I was comfortable with. The 605 offered a promising upgrade, with 7.1 channels and 2 zone speaker outputs and 105w per channel. I thought it was interesting that Onkyo offered an optional ipod dock, but when I found that the ipod dock they offered connected using RCA inputs I decided to not opt for this.

Problem with component -> HDMI -> 720p monitor

Cherie, Amazon
16 February 2008
  • Summary: I posted this in the forum hoping to find a solution but could not. I bought this receiver from Amazon, found the particular problem I describe, figured it was a faulty receiver and returned it to Amazon to get a replacement - the replacement has the same issue, so I'm starting to think it's a "feature". I have my Cable box connected via Component out to the receiver. Then output via HDMI to my TV (which supports up to 720p, not 1080p).

sounds great and has great options/settings

  • Summary: What you need to keep in mind with this receiver is the great price, it sounds fantastic, and you get a lot of options for a receiver at this price level. BUT, there are some definite compatibility issues with this receiver (read other reviews as well as mine). I bought this receiver b/c I wanted to consolidate the cables going to my TV. My TV is an older HD 1080i rear projection RCA with one DVI input and two component inputs.

HDMI "hum"

Sypiarz, Amazon
6 January 2008
  • Summary: Right now this is probably one of the best bang for the buck cheap receivers. It decodes all new formats plus 2x HDMI 1.3a switching. I have attached an automatic 1.3 3x HDMI switcher to HDMI1 for a total of 4 HDMI inputs and it works flawlessly with Toshiba DVD player, Toshiba HD-A3 and Playstation 3 attached to the switcher and Xbox 360 to the HDMI2. The power output seams a little bit on the weaker side compared to the Onkyo 702 that it replaced.
