Summary: I like to listen to my music VERY LOUD. The Onkyo TX-SR706 delivers an oustanding and clear sound at all volume levels. Sound & Vision (check their review) helped me select this item and I couldn't be any happier.
Summary: Pros: Has all of the sound decoding choices that you can possibly need for a very long time to come. It has four HDMI inputs. Can be fully operated with or without the remote control...all buttons are on the front of the receiver. You don't even need to turn on the TV to view the internal menu. It can be viewed through the display panel window on the front of the receiver. Just press receiver button and then set up button.
Summary: This receiver has it all. The automated speaker setup was excellent. There is plenty of clean power to appreciate the most demanding movie sound. The overall setup was very easy. Upconverts all my standard DVD's to 1080P!!! Seamless passthrough of video. Highly recommend it!!!
Summary: I have this system hooked up to a 7:1 Klipsch R62 series speakers, with a mitsubishi 6500 projector, and a PSIII. Everything works great. I played the latest Batman movie, and it handled the sound and picture without a hitch. Best bang for the buck.
Summary: This is my third Onkyo receiver, and I really have had no complaints about any them. The one I replaced with this receiver gave me over ten years of service. I decided to upgrade because this receiver brings me into the digital age. This unit sports four HDMI inputs and an HDMI output for the TV. Now I can pipe the A/V from the cable box DVR to the receiver and from the receiver to the HDTV while staying in the digital domain the entire path.
Summary: I just finished upacking and installing my TX-SR707. The installation was straight forward, and the Audyssey automated speaker set-up really dialed things in perfectly. It'll take a little while to figure out everyting this beauty can do, but the sound processing on the first movie I stuck in the DVD player was awesome! It looks like the audio part of my A/V system is all set for the foreseeable future.
Summary: After several years of substandard sound from an old Koss system powering some good in-ceiling speakers, I got a great and worthy heart for my system. I read reviews and more reviews, and finally determined that the Onkyo TX-SR706 was the absolute best value available under $1000, and thanks to amazon.com, I paid far less than my upper spending limit. The extensive inputs, clean power, and ability to handle all the usage with quiet aplomb is amazing.
Summary: I am completely satisfied with my decision to purchase the Onkyo TX-SR706. It was very easy to set up but was a little difficult to learn to use all the features but like anything else it gets easier the more I use it.I have 4 sources connected to the inputs and 1 output to a HD TV all with HDMI cables and everything works great with no problems. Do your homework on HDMI cables, I believe you can get excellent quality without the high cost of Monster brand name cables!
Summary: As if the 7 channels of wideband, ultra-quiet, powerful drive even for low impedance speakers weren't enough, couple that with the 7 preamp outputs and PHONO input so you can play your old vinyl collection. Now top that off with every signal processing option imaginable, lots of HDMI connections, and the "Piece de Resistance".........the amazing AUDYSSEY multichannel, dynamic EQ for room/speaker correction with time and frequency domain analysis.
