Summary: Plain and simple, its an awesome receiver. It was very easy to setup and hook the speakers up. It produces a great sound with all my gaming systems (Wii, Playstation 3) and surround sound with tv is great for sporting events. The only downside is that it doesn't have the newer HDMI hookups but thats a small complaint for an otherwise great receiver.
Summary: Our Phillips AV receiver died. Our oldest Son recommended Onkyo for a replacement. After participating in several auctions that went beyond my price point, I finally scored this Onkyo TX SR600 and couldn't be happier. A big improvement in all respects from the Phillips at far less money. It included remote and original packaging. I downloaded the manual and set up was a snap.
Summary: We purchased this product to use primarily for movies/tv/video games/etc. and I must say I'm very pleased with it. It is also a very attractive setup as well. I do use it for listening to music sometimes (and it's fine for me) but I can see how a previous reviewer who bought it to replace his stereo system was disappointed though. If you're looking to use it for bumping loud music and the like, it probably is not the right choice.
Summary: I decided to try out the HT-SR600 and a Yamaha RX-V361/NS-SP1600 speakers after reading the reviews and my experience is summarized below: Onkyo HT-SR600 -------------- Pros: Very easy to set up (color coded speaker wires make it a breeze), Superb receiver Cons: Passive subwoofer weak/underpowered also vibrates a lot at higher volumes, speakers a tad large for a entertainment stand and sound OK but not great.
Summary: When I was looking for home theater systems, I knew nothing about Onkyos until I read some reviews online. I wanted something that sounded crisp and true to life so when I watch movies, I would feel like I was part of it. I like it when the sound is so real, I can't tell if it is the movie or something in the house. So far, I just received this system from Amazon today and it has been incredible. It definitely has enough power for any room in the house.
Summary: This is the first home theater system i have owned but compared to the tv's speakers this is a nice upgrade. The hookup was easy since they color code all the speakers and wires. With this unit you get suround sound for your t.v. and all its components (dvd vcr video games) but you also have am fm tunner plus you can hookup your ipod. I am happy with this system and would buy it again.

Summary: I returned this item for a full refund including shipping. Amazon is great about returns and for that I give Amazon high marks. The subwoofer to this stereo was not powered so the bass was terrible. The speakers weren't all that great either. I would recommend this system to a buyer who is looking for low to mid quality sound but if you are into bass and a sound that punches, this system is not for you.
Summary: I love the receiver that I won. It had dts on it, which is one reason why I bid on it in the first place. The other receiver that I had didn't have it on there, so when it died I wanted to buy one that had it. My son in law has the same receiver and thats who talked me into getting it. The receiver is get, and thak you for asking how I liked it.
