Summary: When we got it, hooked it up and used it, my husband was astounded of the quality and many capabilities of this player and said that he was quite surprised and pleased with it even if it was not the latest model. He actually said that the quality of this player is far better than a lot of the newer and latest players and said that I chose well, especially for it's price.
Summary: This onkyo blu-ray player is terrific! Excellent picture and sound. I have been a huge fan of Onkyo products for over 20 years now. This unit completes my entertainment system perfectly. Onkyo products are always made with the finest circuitry and are heavier weight which I like. I would highly recommend this unit to buyers.
Summary: I am an Onkyo fan from way back. I ordered the BD696 and the TX806. Deliver was prompt. I have a 60" Sony SXRD rear projection TV and JBL speakers, including a pair of 35 year old L100 Studio Monitors. The picture and sound on the Blu Ray disk of Australia and on standard DVD's was outstanding. Very pleased. I had a friend who is an expert make all the connections and do all of the settings. It was money well spent.
Summary: I bought the DV BD606 as a fan of almost all onkyo products. I have a 906 and their hd dvd player, which are both top notch. I was very disappointed by this funai re-badge. SD upconversion was fair and not nearly as good as a pioneer or samsung 2550. It is not profile 2.0, does not decode the hd audio codecs and lacks any other novelty like Netflix Streaming.

Summary: I bought this unit at the Circuit City closing sale on the next to last day at a great price. This is truly a Top of the line Blu-ray player. The up convert of regular DVD's is remarkable. I understand that the processer for this player is more powerful then the Sony play station III. If its quality you want, this is it.
Summary: Outstanding player. Picture quality for Blu-ray is as good as it gets and the up-conversion on DVD's is excellent...cannot ask for better. Onkyo must have used some magic here; since it has played every Blu-ray and DVD put in it. Have played well over 100 DVD's, including DVD-R's. As for Blu-ray..
Summary: My "don't buy" rating is not because... It's too expensive for a unit that lacks internal Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio decoders and 7.1-channel analog audio outputs (anyway, you can get around this if you, like I, already own an Onkyo receiver with high-resolution audio decoding) It fails to support digital-media formats (WMA, JPEG, and Divx) like many other Blu-ray players Most critically, it's video quality is not up to par (a bit soft) - when others say it...
Summary: I have owned this Blu-ray player for over a month, from the very first second of use I was astounded as to the picture and sound quality, both are superb for Blu-ray and upconverted DVD`s, also not a single glitch has occured after over a hundred movies have been played, I recomend this player to all with complete confidence that you will be completely delighted as I!
Summary: It's a fantastic equipment. Works very well with Onkyo hdmi home theater that a have at home. It's a litle bit expensive but it's not the same as the others rated $250,00. I'm from Brazil and I recomend this model to the Amazon Comunity.
