Still a good value!

  • Summary: Still a top drawer AV processor. HDMI issue documented on the internet repairable for minimal cost and effort if it ever crops up. Keep well ventilated. Unit sounds VERY good especially using the "Audessy" set up.

Great sound just not loud enough to hurt!

  • Summary: This is a good average joe receiver. I bought it cause i needed a replacement for my 12.2 it does the job. Positives very very easy set up great sound quality. Down side not enough power leaves you needing/wanting more. I find myself turning the volume up almost 3/4 just to listen to music.

Fatal design problem of HDMI board please stay away

zfzhang, Ebay
17 May 2013
  • Summary: Google the internet for "Onkyo 606 HDMI" and read the negative reviews; or just go to Amazon and read the review for this. This component has a poorly designed HDMI board and will fail 100% of the time with normal use in 2 years. Even ebayer offers repair service for $75.

Failed HDMI. Capacitors issue.

Viewer "Save trees, go paperless.", Amazon
12 April 2013
  • Summary: After 4 years of work mine unit begun to have HDMI handshake issues with all my devices. It takes 3-4 minutes for signal to reach TV. I googled and found that it's common problem with busted capacitors on HDMI boars. Why there is no recall for this? I Will try to repair using youtube video as guide.

Never by Onkyo. SRS606 has HIGH failure rates

matthewdavis, Ebay

  • Summary: This receiver is notorious for going bad. Google it. The HDMI selectors stop working. It runs way too hot. The repair for the HDMI is easy, if you are comfortable with a soldering iron. It is so common that even eBay auctions specific list when the HDMIs are not failing.

Onkyo TX-SR606 is Junk - Never Buy Onkyo Again

Critical Thinker, Amazon
11 March 2013
  • Summary: I bought this Onkyo back in late 2008 for $440. At first, it sounded and worked well. But over time, the HDMI connections began to fail. At first, I noticed it would take a few minutes for the unit to switch between my cable box and my DVD player.

Will never purchase Onkyo brand again

thejerseydevil, Amazon
26 January 2013
  • Summary: I understand electronics sometimes fail but it seems nearly everyone has had or will have HDMI handshake issues - but Onkyo wouldn't do a recall? Hopefully this hurts them in the long run as consumers like myself will no longer buy the brand.

It Was Great ... Still Is At Least Good

Rico C, Amazon
21 April 2012
  • Summary: Well, as many have found ... 2 to 3 years seems to be the life-span of the capacitors on the HDMI board in this otherwise fantastic receiver. I've had mine just over 3 years; it started the HDMI handshake problem about 3 months ago.

Caught Fire

Rockband55, Amazon
30 January 2012
  • Summary: I've had my unit since May 2008 and sure that's a good amount of time for a receiver, but I've always had some kind of problems with this unit. Near the end of its life it wasn't selecting the proper audio signal, so I'd have to manually change it all the time.
