Problems from the beginning

Lisha Kronmann, Amazon
1 September 2012
  • Summary: Bought this off of Amazon warehouse as a surprise and set it up myself (hubby was on active duty overseas). During the first week or so, had problems with the unit in that it seemed to intermittently fail to pass the video signal through from my DVD player to the TV. Sometimes I could get it to resolve by turning the unit on and off, or by changing the input to something else, and then back to BD/DVD.

Video drops with HDMI

Randy, Amazon
19 November 2011
  • Summary: I understand the problem I'm facing with this system is a problem with a lot of theater systems, called the "HDMI Handshake". But nonetheless, I didn't know about when I purchased the system, and my TV is wall-mounted with a permanent configuration so I have to use HDMI,not component cabling.

Terrible abd faulty product

OSO84, Amazon
1 September 2011
  • Summary: I bought this product in July 2010 by September 2010 the HDMI output had completely went out. Onkyo honored their warranty but I had to drive 1 hour north in order to ensure it was delivered properly, not to mention they do not cover shipping. After close to 2 months I was able to pick my receiver back up. Now it is less than 1 year later and the HDMI input is completely out. Im sure they will cover this with the same standards as before.

Keep looking elsewhere as Onkyo disappoints.

Randy L. Kosch "SgtRock95", Amazon
22 July 2011
  • Summary: Purchased my Onkyo August 1 2010. Within 3 months the unit failed as no audio or video would pass through the unit. Shipped it in for service as Onkyo specified (double boxed and insured), which cost me $75! Returned about 3 weeks later. The unit has failed a second time in less than a year. I understand components can fail but it should have been fixed for good the first time.

So Happy

Pokey, Amazon
26 March 2011
  • Summary: well I must have wasted a week or more reviewing receivers around this price range. Actually very happy with the TX-SR608. I took some time to do the setup and get things the way I wanted them (based on the room you are putting it in), but even for someone who doesnt want to spend alot of time on settings, basic setup is easy so you wont be sitting there reading a manual for hours. The remote is laid out nicely, things are grouped about as good as can be expected.

Onkyo AV Receiver TX-SR608

jroesle1che, Ebay
5 March 2011
  • Summary: Excellent sound quality at very reasonable price but the set up was confusing and far more complicated than necessary. Spent hours on the phone getting the correct settings applied. Technical Support was good sometimes and bad others. Would not recommend to non-technical musical buffs.

Onkyo TX-SR608 Early Review

MXGearHead, Amazon
25 February 2011
  • Summary: I purchased this Receiver to replace my old Onkyo (TX-DS555) Because I needed HDMI support and the new Dolby sound format used in todays blue ray movies. My current setup consists of a Samsung TOC 46" LCD TV and a C5500 blue ray player along with ATT UVERSE DVR and an XBOX 360. All items are connected by HDMI cables only and I use Polk Audio speakers. Before I brag about how awesome this receiver is, let me get a few things out of the way 1.
