    onkyo 506 vs 606

    Looking to pick one of these up and i cant make up my mind! Is it worth the extra money to get the 606? or is there a better reciever in that price range?

    Re: onkyo 506 vs 606

    If you're looking to run HDMI components through the receiver, the 606 is a MUST! The 506 only does pass-through, so you won't get any audio through the receiver without running an additional optical/dig.coax cable. Not to mention the independant volume control on the 606's Zone 2 is very nice.

    What your gonna spend in additional cabling, you could have used to update to a more future proof receiver...

    Re: onkyo 506 vs 606

    I could be wrong, but I don't believe that the 506 can process lossless codecs, that alone is worth the upgrade. I'd go with the 606.

    Ooooorrrr, see if you can still find a cheap 805. I got one about 2 months ago for $415.



    System:
    Alpine 9886
    Front Stage:
    Sundown 100.2
    Rainbow CMX 265s
    Sub Stage:
    Rockford T10001bd
    2 10 JL W6v2s
