Disappointed

Clay C, Amazon
20 February 2011
  • Summary: Once again I have been thwarted in my quest to have a receiver which can fully act as a mixer. The fact is, unless you have an older TV or vision that is not correctable to 20/20 you are going to notice a reduction in picture quality if you run your HDMI cables through this reciever, even in...

Incredible Value, but HDMI Video Issues mar an otherwise perfect Entry-Level Receiver

WDH, Amazon
20 February 2011
  • Summary: Unlike a lot of CEs, Onkyo may have indavertantly cannibalized its own model lineup by pushing so much featureset into an entry level receiver that it might deter buyers from their higher end models.

JTS, Amazon

Evan S., Newegg
21 December 2010

Repair center has had my unit for about a week now and seemed...

Nominal Performance

Kenneth H., Newegg
3 September 2010
  • Pros: Variety of sound features for different modes. Connectivity to all componenets was great. Runs cool.

To listen at low levels you need to turn to low 50s, and for movies you need to crank it up to at least 70 to 75. SInce I h...

A receiver of two halfs

Mr. G. J. Shorte'', Amazon
20 February 2011
  • Summary: I bought this on the back of some amazing reviews. As well documented it is simply astonishing in its cinema capabalities. However, sadly, for audio it is lifeless. None of the sound-fields, dedicated to music bring them to life, or seem particularly suited.

24 September 2010
  • Summary: Über die technischen Details, Anschlussmöglichkeiten und die Leistung dieses Kraftpakets muss man nicht viel sagen. Die Daten sprechen fast für sich und das Gerät setzt es wirklich auch gut um.

Ulrich Gemeiner, Amazon
21 September 2010
  • Summary: Die Lobeshymnen der übrigen Schreiber brauchen hier nicht wiederholt zu werden, denn der TX-SR608 ist wirklich ein sehr gutes und komplettes Gerät, das kaum Wünsche offen lässt - zu einem günstigen Preis!
