Great product. I'm happy I purchased it

  • Summary: This is a great receiver. Although it only has 2 hdmi ports. Since I have multiple devices I should have gone with a unit that has 2 hdmi ports. Other than that I enjoy the receiver very much.

Great receiver for the money.

  • Summary: So far it works very well. Better than my newer Demon unit that was sent back for repair. The sound is just as good as the Demon unit with better features available. The only down side I have experienced is that any change of listening modes is not displayed on my TV.

  • Summary: Overall the reciever work well. I upgraded from a 25 year old reciever so I would have the hdmi connections, ect. I also wanted to have a second zone to listen to music in, this unit has that feature, so we can still listen to the stereo in the sun room without needing anothe full system.

Good receiver

Amazon
15 February 2012
  • Summary: I've had this receiver for a couple of years now and it's worked very well. I knew about its limitations prior to purchasing so they don't bother me (e.g. only 2 HDMI inputs). Sound quality is quite good with plenty of volume to fill my 20x20 theater room. My only complaint is that the IR remote receiver is extremely weak. I often work-out well off to the side of my AV equipment which means my remote is sending at a pretty extreme angle.

Onkyo TX SR605 7.1 channel Receiver

0acg0, Ebay
22 October 2009
  • Summary: Plenty of inputs, except for phono. If you have a conventional turntable, you will need a pre-amp. Involved set-up, but not diffficult. Good sound. I am using the A/V receiver with a blu-ray player, cd player and tape deck. The unit is set-up for 7.1 surround sound, but I have set it up as a 6.1 system due to my room configuration. Good remote.

Solid receiver; some minor (?) HDMI switching limitations...

Atul Khare, Amazon

  • Summary: Got the Onkyo 605 (replaced the RX-1200) this morning and spent about an hour setting it up. The experience was very positive and I had no problems what-so-ever. In summary, it seems to be a solid receiver if you can live w/ inability to matrix "Multi Channel PCM" to 7.1 and lack of component -> HDMI switching > 720p.

A very good receiver, an excellent value

  • Summary: After a lot of procastinating, I finally decided to upgrade to a receiver with more features. I chose the Onkyo 605, and it's worked out very well. 1) The price/performance ratio on the 605 is very good. You get a sophisticated, relatively high powered receiver that doesn't have many weaknesses. 2) Connectivity is about all you can ask for at this price point. You have 2 HDMI input connections, and 1 HDMI output.

Onkyo 605 -

transmigrant2, Ebay
2 October 2008
  • Summary: Compliments - the sound balance mic is cool, receiver drives decent power, has a ton of different audio formats accepted/decoded, sound field is pretty egg-normous with some big speakers. Giant, flawless, theater-like sound from blu-ray uncompressed audio. Also, the 2channel to surround expansion decoding makes your 2 channel audio awesomely immersive (play mariokart64 and you'll hear what I mean) Gripes - for some reason the front Composite video input (the little...

Connection to Octigon Switch

Ralph B. Muse, Amazon
25 June 2008
  • Summary: I am using this unit with a Tivo and a Octigon 3X8 switch all on HDMI. I could not get the HDMI output to my TV to work with the switch however it worked great connected to the TIVO. I connected the Onkyo HDMI input to my switch and the connected the TV also directly to the switch. That worked great (good thing I only have 7 TVs).

This is one hot receiver!

Robert A. Watson, Amazon
5 June 2008
  • Summary: I have been very happy so far with this receiver. The various listening modes are great, it has a healthy number of input/outputs, and it was relatively easy to set-up. The only fault I can find with my Onkyo receiver to this point is that it really runs very hot. Even just sitting in standby mode it is quite warm, and after a couple of hours of sound decoding, putting your hand on it is very unpleasant. You will half-expect it melt into AVR soup.
