Onkyo TX-SR606 review: Onkyo TX-SR606

 

Onkyo TX-SR606

Four HDMI inputs; onboard Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio decoding; upconverts analog signals to 1080i over HDMI output; Sirius-ready; excellent automatic speaker calibration; switches as many as six high-definition video sources; improved remote.

Poor video processing limits utility of HDMI upconversion for analog sources; sounds better on movies than with music; no phono input.

The Onkyo TX-SR606 offers tons of functionality for the price, but subpar video processing and improved competition means it's less of a standout receiver than last year's version.

Onkyo TX-SR606 A/V Receiver

 

The great thing about technol-ogy is that everything eventually becomes affordable. The latest generation of A/V receivers certainly demonstrates this, and the Onkyo TX-SR606 exemplifies the extraordinary features and performance capabilities of AVRs...

Onkyo seems to include these functions instead of certain custom-install features more common to pricier AVRs. It doesn't have a 12-volt trigger, IR jacks, or RS-232 connectivity for support with third-party hard-wired controllers. These omissions make...

Onkyo TX-SR606 A/V Receiver

 

With four HDMI 1.3a inputs, the Onkyo can receive and decode both DTS-HD Master Audio and Dolby TrueHD bitstreams from a Blu-ray or HD DVD player—in fact, it's one of the least-expensive AVRs to do so. Additionally, it offers auto lip-sync compensation...

Onkyo TX-SR606 A/V Receiver

 

As a maker of quality A/V components for over 60 years, Onkyo offers a wide range of AVRs at various price points. The TX-SR606 falls at the upper end of its "budget" receivers with a price of $599. Onkyo proclaims that this model is at "the forefront...

Onkyo TX-SR606 review

 

Solid specification ; simple to set up and operate ; muscular, invigorating sound

Not the final word in refinement and finesse

We’re still big fans of the TX-SR606, but new models from rival brands have seriously upped the ante

ONKYO TX-SR606 review

 

Onkyo has updated its most popular AV receiver, but was it worth it?

Good connectivity with plenty of HDMI sockets ; Much improved GUI ; Dynamic EQ

Not a powerhouse when all channels are driven

Plenty to recommend it, this is a superb entry-level receiver

We took a quick look at the other upscaling options offered by the TX-SR606 (480p and 720p) and although they didn't have the same issues filling the screen, we saw a similar loss in resolution in both modes, which resulted in program material. The...
