Summary: I've owned this unit for many years. I purchased it locally when it was still new to the market. It was a great bang for your buck unit that performed better than many other units in the same price range. Sadly however it doesn't stand the test of time.
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.
Summary: I have this receiver hooked up to a 7.1 surround system, and it works great. I used the included microphone to automatically adjust the speaker volume levels but, I didn't quite agree with the chosen levels, so I manually went in and adjusted them.
Summary: Onkyo SR605 is a quality receiver for the price. I highly recommend it for those people who don't want to spend a lot for a receiver, but want high quality sound. It can be a little difficult hooking up the connections if you are putting the receiver in a cabinet.
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.
Summary: I am a guy who is really into gadgets and gizmos. I also appreciate quality electronics and good value. This receiver is probably the best value you will find although I wish it had a few more HDMI inputs. Everything else does exactly as it says it does.
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.
