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...
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.
Summary: I recently upgraded from the Onkyo TX-SR605 to the Onkyo TX-SR608 in order to add the number of HDMI ports in as well as to gain the ability to pass 3D. I wasn't surprised by these features, but what did surprise me were some of the other great improvements between the 605 and 608.
Summary: Bought the TX-SR608 to replace a Samsung home theater system. Paired the receiver with Polk Audio RM510 speaker system. What a difference. The TX=SR608 has six HDMI 1.4 inputs which are 3D capable. It has 1080p upscaling and video processing. It can be set up to bypass the video processor; I did.
Summary: After spending weeks pouring over every receiver under $500, I setteled on the Onkyo 608. And for a first time Home Theater shopper, I have been impressed. The on screen GUI is easy to use, simple display functions allow you to see all the information the reciever is getting, and what is being...
Summary: The reason I was looking for a new receiver: 1) got a new Blu-Ray player for Christmas and found out the sound track on Blu-ray disks is usually not Dolby 5.1 and my existing receiver did not do DTS 2) could not get the audio balanced to my liking on the old Sony receiver using the Bose surround...
Summary: This is the first time I've ever taken the time to review anything but I'm so satisified with this receiver I felt it was worth my time. I'll have to admit, I was a bit skeptical about ordering the Onkyo TX-SR608, thinking "This is an entry level receiver..
Summary: I bought this unit about a month ago to replace my old Onkyo 500 non-HDMI receiver. The old Onkyo was fabulous but couldn't handle my future plans. The 608 has proven to be a high quality audio and video processor.
Summary: I bought this as an upgrade to my Onkyo TX-SR604. I recently bought a new 3D TV and needed to get a compatible 3D TV. I have an upconverting Onkyo DVD player and Sony Playstation 3 hooked into two HDMI inputs. I have had ZERO video issues and I've actually noticed a nice bump in sound quality.
Summary: I received this unit last week, and have been fiddling with it non-stop. So far, i have not had any of the issues mentioned in previous reviews. I am currently running 5 small satellites (~65w) and a sub out. The unit barely gets warm at these levels thanks to the fan on top of the unit.
