  • Summary: I hope this review can be of help to others. I guess I am a dinosaur, but my first concern with a receiver is the sound - after all, the main function of a receiver is the ability to reproduce the audio.

This Receiver Rocks!

Andrew V., Newegg
10 November 2009
  • Summary: Tons of options and settings to tailor to your particular needs if your one like myself whom is very meticulous of both there video and especially sparing nothing for sound quality! Onkyo use to build with built in cooling fans however they don't any more!
  • Pros: Awesome sound and up-conversion video especially from other video input sources (S-Video & Component) to 1080P! I hear sounds in movies that I've owned for years that I've never hear until now!!! It's like watching them all for the first time! The amount of A/V capabilities this receiver has is t...
  • Cons: Yes there is a bit of latency time between source switching with HDMI however, it's a lot of information to have to channel. Some time there's a bit of a brain fart with it's switching, but is quickly resolved with changing sources again then back.

So far, great item

W. Pearson, Amazon
30 September 2009
  • Summary: So far, I have no real complaints. The learning curve is high, especially if you are used to a model from say, 10 years ago, as there are so many options for sound processing, but I would definitely recommend this receiver for anyone building a home theater system who may want to continue...

Oustanding Receiver

R. Wilhelm, Amazon
30 September 2009
  • Summary: I did quite a bit of research before buying the Onkyo TX-SR806. After pulling it out of the box, I immediately made the appropriate connections with my 7.1 system, PS3, Dish Network box, and TV. The receiver immediately recognized all the systems and easily switched using the single remote.

Performs great, but runs HOT

David S, Amazon
29 September 2009
  • Summary: I bought this a few days ago, and was completely impressed by the quality of the sound. The automatic speaker setup was a breeze, and the manual does a good job of explaining the complex procedure of assigning inputs to different components. Negative: This thing is HOT. I mean scorching hot.

Almost perfect

Dave, Amazon
29 September 2009
  • Summary: I love this AV receiver. The only issues I have had are 1) that there's no switched power outlet on the back and 2) that the upscaling feature doesn't work well on everything. My projector has DVI and Component RGB connectors, and Onklyo says their upscaling isn't supported if you have to use an...

Great sound, easy setup

Jon, Amazon
29 September 2009
  • Summary: This is my first home theater receiver and it's been in use for a month now. Setup was as simple as possible once you get past all those wires - the Audyssey balanced my 7.1 system in minutes with only a few clicks of the remote.

Great unit for the price

A. Slogar, Amazon
29 September 2009
  • Summary: I was comparing this unit with a yamaha 663, since I have owned yamaha products for many years. R-9, RXV992, RXV995. Never had a problem with them, and had them for many years. I took a risk with this unit, since there was heat issues, and heat is a killer for electronics.

Onkyo 806 Sounds Great-Video upconvert problem

TE, Amazon
29 September 2009
  • Summary: I bought this receiver to replace a Pioneer Elite 26. I set it up in a stand with limited ventilation and found that it did run hot. Component input from the Satellite box to HDMI 1080p became intermittent.
