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.
Summary: Up to date with all the HD codecs and plenty of HDMI connectivity. Great sound, Audyssey EQ makes speaker set-up a breeze, plus many, many more features...all at a very affordable price. No other receiver on the market right now will match this one for the price (even a slightly higher price range).
Summary: I just finshed college and wanted to treat myself to my very own home theater system.. I already had a 42" LCD HDTV 1080p and a playstation 3.. all I needed now was a home theater set up... At the time I had very little knowledge about home audio... Only one product came to mind when it came to home audio and it was bose... yup!.. I was one of those guys... I was researching all over the internet to find a decent system with my budget...
Summary: My first receiver I ever purchased was in 1986 and it was an Onkyo. 23 years later I bought another Onkyo after having Sony, Harmon Kardan, JVC, Pioneer, etc. The TX SR606 is the best receiver I've ever owned. Excellent for movies! You won't go wrong with Onkyo.
Summary: What a great receiver! I had a Yamaha receiver which was about five years old, so I updated to the Onkyo. What a difference! The Yamaha was good, but the Onkyo is great. When I hooked it up I could immediately hear the difference in the separation of the different channels. You won't be disappointed.
Much Better Than Entry-Level at a Very Reasonable Price

Summary: Our new HDTV came with a really wimpy sound system. I paired the Onkyo TX-SR606 with some Klipsch speakers and voila! We have a room full of GREAT sound. I especially like the Audyssey automatic calibration and speaker setup feature which custom tailors the system to your specific room acoustics. I also enjoy being able to toggle through the various audio profiles on the fly.
Summary: This is it. I mean, come one! It's got 4 HDMI inputs, it upscales all inputs ( component, svideo, and even composite inputs) so you can use a single HDMI output, and it has the Audyssey eq system - all for under $500 (at the time of this writing) The first 3 features are relatively self explanatory to you home theater gurus but the Audyssey system requires some additional explanation and praise. This was one of the selling points for me.
Great Surround Sound Receiver...Very User Friendly

Summary: I have been pleased with the Onkyo 606 receiver. Setup is easy, and it is extremely user friendly. It has settings for each of your components (DVD, VCR, GAME, Cable/Satellite, etc.) I love it!!! I have Klipsch Speakers hooked to it. This is probably the best receiver for the money.
