Onkyo TX-SR706 7.1 A/V Receiver

 

At $899, the Onkyo TX-SR706 is Onkyo's least expensive THX certified model and an interesting product within Onkyo's range of receivers. It is the lowest priced receiver in Onkyo's line-up that offers all the features I want in a receiver including...

I truly enjoyed using the Onkyo. It has all of the features I need and sounded very good with all of my sources. However, my feelings for the TX-SR706 are colored, much like they were for the TX-SR576, by the model that sits between them in Onkyo’s...

Onkyo TX-SR706 THX Certified Seven Channel A/V Receiver

 

While the TX-SR706 may not be the best looking receiver out there, it does not compromise on sound. In fact, our reviewer found the sound quality, "so un-receiver-like that you're bound to double take more than once during a listening session." It...

Though only utilizing 100 watts per channel, the TX-SR706 proves to be plenty strong for loud passages through semi-inefficient speakers. The inner detail, soundstaging and overall musicality of the TX-SR706 is very surprising, giving it a far more...

The TX-SR706 runs very warm to the touch and should be installed in a properly ventilated space ; The TX-SR706 is a bit light on component and digital audio inputs for those who still use non-HDMI-capable pieces ; The remote is far better than its...

Onkyo has always been an industry leader at the sub-$1,000 price point and the TX-SR706 continues in that tradition. While a single step up in price will garner some improvements, it may be hard to justify, considering what you get for less. The...

Onkyo TX-SR706 review

 

Onkyo's TX-SR706 offers THX Select2 Plus post-processing and HD audio decoding for a mere £600

Strong feature set ; Subtle, expressive sound quality ; The most affordable THX Select2 Plus receiver currently available

Punchy but no powerhouse

Delivers more than enough oomph for most people, and at a very reasonable price

Hmmm...i should have...but...but...

 

But, NE did honor the $30 less at original order time after calling, and another $25 on future purchases for the RMA hassle. Bottom line, you can get it for $500, or less if you watch , and wait, for it. Originally on the fence with this because of...

None yet. First one DOA. NewEgg to replace

First one DOA. Should have waited for it to go down in price. An hour before I first ordered it (as I was deciding) it went up $30 and now it's again being offered at the $30 less price. The day my RMA was recieved in CA at NewEgg (today), they were...

ONKYO TXSR706B THX Select2 Plus 7.1-Channel Home Theater Receiver

 

Great buy and great sounds

Once agian newegg does a great job. I am average when it comes to receivers and this is a huge upgrade for me and I can tell such a big difference in this reciever. I am very happy with the price and the quality of the TXSR 706 reciever.

only thing I could even think off is that it is more advanced than I am used to, but that is a good thing, make me learn more about the reciever.

ONKYO TXSR706B THX Select2 Plus 7.1-Channel Home Theater Receiver

 

I have purchased Onkyo equipment before, many years ago and this is my first Onkyo purchase since and let me tell you I am not disappointed. Onkyo is a name I trust and will continue to buy. I don't know if this helps anyone with their decision to buy...

This was a piece of cake to set up, just followed the manual and no problems. The features and quality of sound are excellent.( My setup uses Polk Audio speakers). It's just nice to have a receiver with so many options, and inputs. One other pro is...

Not really a Con but their are so many different sound configurations to choose from.

ONKYO TXSR706B THX Select2 Plus 7.1-Channel Home Theater Receiver

 

1080p up-converting and 4 HDMI so i only have to run one cable to my tv. The audyssey auto setup is quick and simple and does an amazing job! Decodes all the new surround formats! The remote can be programed to replace all you other remotes witch is...

I had some issues with it blacking out while watching my TiVo but it was solved by using a HDMI instead of component cable. All the features took some getting used to but i got the hang of it pretty quikly

Bang for the buck

 

I had first seen this unit at the local Circuit City. It was marked down about 30% and I quickly went home to see what kind of reviews the unit had. My previous receiver was a Harman/Kardon AR240 which was a great unit. The 706 had DTS-HD and TrueHD...

Remote doesn't have any glow in the dark buttons, but still a nice sleek look.
