Decent performance, but ultimately fails on quality

Costa "tech gadget geek", Amazon

  • Summary: When it worked, the performance was quite acceptable. I really liked using the sound programming, very easy to setup. However same as so many other users, I also had problems with too much heat and an early death of all 5 HDMI inputs (about 1 year after purchase).

ONKYO TX-SR806S feedback/squelch when 1st powering it on!

Michael Normile "Mike N.", Amazon
28 March 2012
  • Summary: I was very happy with this unit for the first 3 years(1 year past warranty). No typical problems with HDMI failures, it does run warm. Upconversion to 1080P works fine, does everything its supposed to.

Overpriced boat anchor

Gerson Bers "PA GerSonic", Amazon
28 January 2009
  • Summary: This is just a poor quality receiver. While the price and feature set were attractive at the time of purchase, I would not consider purchasing another piece of Onkyo audio or video equipment.

blue dots when using 1080p! beware!

V. Faida, Amazon
22 December 2008
  • Summary: i was really looking forward to get this receiver but it seems that majority of 806 series have this problem. when you play native 1080p content you get blue dots on the dark parts of the picture and when you pause they flicker!
