Summary: If you are familiar with Onkyo receivers you know you are getting great sound already. I went from a ts-sr701 to this due to a need for HDMI inputs and outputs. An added bonus is you no longer need the monitor output for the on-screen setup it is all done through the HDMI output. Onkyo did it right again, great receiver.
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: Exactly what we expected! Really easy setup, plug in your hdmi connections & you're just about good to go. Learning all the little details as we go along. Speakers putting out great sound. Movies are a whole new experience, have to watch all our dvds all over again! Remote is easy to use. Just a pleasure all around.
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 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: 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: Most of the reviews on this are spot on, this is an excellent receiver for the price. It's simple, it has plenty of power, audio performance is outstanding and the fact that it will de-interlace HDMI to HDMI is just unheard of in a lower cost unit. This is currently is the heart of my man cave system that includes Definitive Audio BiPolar speakers, DP2X's for surround, BP7006's for main, a CLR2002 for the center channel and a Sony KDL-46Z4100 rounding it out.
