    Onkyo TX-SR606

    Right now I have the Logitech Z-5500 5.1 setup but am looking to upgrade at least the receiver and the sub for now.

    Was looking at the Onkyo 606 and it looks pretty nice. Has support for 7.1 and DD True-HD and DTS HD-MA. I have a Xbox 360 along with a PS3 so that would be my main sources of media for it. I Was reading about it and the only knock is the internal video conversion on it. My Samsung tv is only 720p anyways so I dont think I would be using it anyways.

    Budget is around $350-400 for the receiver so this falls right in line. Anybody had any experience with this model. Mainly just want it for sound processing.

    I have no experience with Onkyos, but I have owned 2 different Yamahas and love both of them.

    No experience with the 606 outside of just messing with it at a store near by, but I have had a 805 and now the 806 and they are great, two of the best receivers I've had. They get a bit hot, but other than that, 0 problems.

    Now, in your price range, the other one to look at is a Yamaha 663. It is a good receiver in the same price range. Also the Denon 1909 (pretty sure that's what it is). You can find it towards the upper end of your price range at times. Both of these decode TrueHD and DTS-MA.

    All good choices, but I'd upgrade those speakers when you save some funds. Fry's always has good deals on some Polk floor standing speakers which with the right sub are a **** nice budget system with any of those receivers.

    Re: Onkyo TX-SR606

    You better have good cooling in the cabinet if your going with the 606, that b!tch gets hot...

    Actually, just look into cooling in general but get a higher CFM system if your going with the onkyo...

    You'd need a huge room to fully take advantage of what 7.1 offers...

    I have a 7.1 processor, but it has the ability to bi-amp the fronts with the rear surrounds. I just need better frontstage.

    I like my Yamaha. I just wish it had a blackout feature for the display so it wasn't distracting during movies.

    Re: Onkyo TX-SR606

    Yeah, I also use mine to bi-amp my front stage using a 5.1

    When watching movies, I'm driving all 7 channels @4ohms... and never had any problems. (It's rated for 8ohm operation, 6 ohm minimum.)
