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.

  • Summary: This is a very good receiver for the price. Great sound quality, easy to program the remote to use with other components. Doesn't run any hotter then any other high powered receiver. Took getting used to to assign the inputs but once I got it everything works and sounds great. Definetly would stick with Onkyo products and J&R.

Excellent sound

Ed D, J&R
3 February 2011
  • Summary: Ref: 107395651 Good sound. USed only the audio components and bypass the video components using an HDMI switch. The video quality from my 1080P TV diminished when the PS3 and HD cable box were directly connected to the reciver's HDMIs.
  • Pros: Easy To Setup, Great Sound, Great Sound Quality
  • Cons: To HDMI, TV video quality worsen, When directly connected

Very happy ... So far

James Otto, Amazon
11 December 2010
  • Summary: I purchased this Onkyo receiver for several reasons. 1) my 10 yr old Sony ES receiver died (over a $1000 ten years ago) 2) been told Onkyo makes good receivers. 3) the feature set 4) the price I read every review I could about this receiver, and comparable ones from Denon, Yamaha, Pioneer and Sony. It came down to the Onkyo and Pioneer. If I were to be safe, I would have chosen the Pioneer vsx1020k.

Absolute best bang for the buck.

Richard S. Sims, Amazon

  • Summary: All the receivers I have ever owned have always been lacking some missing feature or other that only the higher priced receivers would have. I love my music and movies, but I don't want to spend thousands on a receiver. This unit has everything that I wanted, which mostly consisted of enough inputs (HDMI and others) to plug in everything that I have. Instead of not having enough inputs, I actually have extras for once, which is fantastic.

Good reciever but has issues passing through DirecTV 3D content

David N., Amazon
4 November 2010
  • Summary: I'm not going to get too detailed since you'll find good reviews from other customers. I just wanted to point out to potential buyers that the Onkyo TX-SR608 doesn't pass through DirecTV 3D video properly. When you have the DirecTV receiver hooked up directly into the Onkyo and out to your TV, the 3D signal doesn't automatically switch to 3D on your TV. It's a side by side picture where you have to manually start 3D.

Great receiver if you set it up correctly

Tampart1 "Tampart1", Amazon
29 September 2010
  • Summary: I purchased this 608 to replace a 10 year old Technics( which still worked ). Setup on the 608 was a major pain in the rear. Once I got it set up(after several calls to Onkyo support), the sound was fantastic (paired with Onkyo speakers), but I could not find a way to just listen to my Vizio TV without turning the Onkyo 608 on. After 3 calls to Onkyo's tech support, they blamed it on the Vizio TV not being compatible or a problem with my cable box.

Onkyo review

Jeff, Amazon
13 September 2010
  • Summary: I love this receiver. It is by far the best value for your money out there. The sound is amazing. I was shopping for this for a few months waiting for the right price. I went to Best Buy and played with it in the Magnolia studio. They had the piece for $599. I informed them of amazons price but they would not budge so I bought from amazon, saved tax and had it to by door step in 5 days! I have never been more happy it was easy to set up. The onscreen display is amazing.

Good product for the price

Jeff, J&R
2 September 2010
  • Summary: I purchased this product to add HDMI switching to my family room setup. Sound is equivalent to the Denon 3803 that it replaces for theater purposes, while adding easier setup and an on-screen menu that makes life much easier. The remote isn't that great, but I use the receiver with a Harmony remote anyway so that point is somewhat irrelevant. For the price, you can't really beat it.
  • Pros: Easy Setup, Great Sound Quality
