Some home theater tips for this receiver

JTS, Amazon
17 January 2011
  • Summary: I purchased this receiver in June 2010 and so have had time to digest all the options and features of this product so that I can provide a fair review. I use this receiver primarily for home theater and its been excellent so I rate the product 5 stars. I havent run into the video issues that have been mentioned in prior posts.

  • 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 "through" mode you'll lose signal quality. Several other reviewers mention this problem - I wish I had paid more attention to them before buying.

A receiver of two halfs

Mr. G. J. Shorte'', Amazon
19 January 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. Treble is harsh, the mid range struggles and bass fades away as you crank it up, meaning the music loses all energy.

Achtung: Stromfresser im "HDMI-THRU"-Betrieb

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! Nun aber zur "Schattenseite": Der Onkyo bietet die Möglichkeit, bei ausgeschaltetem Receiver (Stand-By) HDMI-Signale an das über den HDMI-Ausgang angeschlossene TV-Gerät zu übertragen.
