This is one of the best Receiver 4 the $$ Get acquainted with it.
2 January 2012
Summary: This is one of the best Receiver that I had in a long time. I had some that where grate, but this one is vary nice, you just have to sit down and get acquainted with it, just take your time. Good luck Peace out !!
Summary: Purchased for use with Squeezebox 2 and standard DVD player. Connected to a Samsung UN46D6000 46-Inch 1080p 120Hz LED HDTV (Black) via HDMI. This receiver replaced a unit that was almost 10 years old. Picture quality is great, although I lack a Blu-ray player to really test the HDMI. Sound quality is very good from the Squeezebox for both streaming and LAN media. Overall it's a great value replacement for a simple 5.1 setup.
Summary: Almost a year and nothing to complain about. It has all the options I wanted and more. As a boring work-a-day bozo, I don't care about the discrete techno-wizzo data or an "impressive" brand name. I simply wanted something that sounds and performs well and that's what I got.
Summary: Bought this through Amazon. Great receiver. Set up was relatively easy. Interface was simple. Instructions in the manual was spot on. Great sound. Great picture. Uhm let me rephrase that.....awesome and phenomenal sound!! Good value at 420$ when i got it. Question is.....why is the 608 still more expensive than the newer 609 model...hmmm....probably still in great demand!!?
Summary: This is the third time I have purchased a refurbished Onkyo product. I have never had a problem. In this case, the packaging was akin to a brand new receiver. I have had it up and running for about a month now and it shows no sign of any problems.
Summary: I have had this now for just over 6 months. This is my second Onkyo home-theater receiver and I love them both. I only upgraded to this model because I wanted to have HDMI and HD audio capabilities with my new TV and Blu-Ray player. The former is now at my parents and working great! Now, this receiver has everything that I wanted. I love the HDMI switching and pass through.
Summary: The quick setup docs were incorrectly labeled for the speaker connections. They indicated incorrect (reversed) left and right orientations when compared to the realtime Audyssey visual graphic.
Summary: After reading countless reviews in home theater magazines on receivers I chose the Onkyo TX-SR608. It really does have it all wrapped in a great price. I love all the features including 3D passthrough and DolbyHD sound.
Summary: I sat a studied for months the receiver I wanted ... I had my mind originally set on a Yamaha but the features I was wanting and wattage I couldn't find a suitable model for my budget ...My neighbor has the Pioneer VSX-1020-K w/Polk Audio...Sounds good but I like the clarity in the Klipsch.... IT sound awesome and was almost sold on it.
