Summary: I've been an Onkyo fan for years and this receiver replaces an Onkyo that I've been very happy with. I bought this receiver because of the HDMI inputs, the THX certification, to have one cable to the TV, and the good reviews.
Summary: A few have stated this already, but I wanted to reiterate some of the points... Sound This receiver generates incredible surround sound and enables you to hear sounds and effects that you may have missed before. Really well done and the reason the received gets three stars.
Summary: I have had the TX-SR806 for about two weeks now, and it's a mixed bag at best. Overall it's a good/almost-great receiver for a home theater, but there are some problems that are leading me to return it. Not sure if I will try another 806, stay with Onkyo or jump brands.
Summary: I've had experience with this receiver for 2 months. Recently, I noticed an issue with video. Very minor, however I thought something wasn't right. I've calibrated my setup many times over the years, so I thought maybe settings had drifted.
