Best 7.2 home theater receiver

 

Reviewer after reviewer agrees that, for its price, the Onkyo TX-SR608 7.2-channel receiver is tough to beat. The sound quality with music and movies won't be as good as with an audiophile receiver costing thousands more, but it will be...

Great sound, feature packed, good video upscaling, tHX certified

Auto speaker setup program not as sophisticated as some, sound quality not quite as good as more expensive home theater receivers

First, it supports a 7.2 speaker set up which at the time I bought it was one of the few available at the time ; It supports a nice number of HDMI, Component, and other inputs and outs ; It supports a number of settings, such as Dolby TrueHD, DTS-HD...

Like the ONKYO TX-SR606 7.1-Channel Black Home Theater Receiver this one also has issues with clear dialog. As in if your watching a movie with a lot of sound effects which come across as LOUD which sadly drowns out the dialog. So you may find yourself...
