Product Details

Onkyo TXSR806 THX Ultra 2 Plus Certified 7.1 Channel Home Theater Black Receiver, Model TXSR806B

The TX-SR806 occupies a unique position in the Onkyo line-up.We class it as a mid-range A/V receiver. But with its advanced capabilities and THX Ultra2 Plus certification, it’s a worthy challenger for high-end status. Built with high-definition entertainment in mind, the TX-SR806 accommodates up to five HDMI™ sources that can handle both 1080p video and studio master-quality surround sound.That’s more high-def sources than you’ll find on any other Onkyo A/V receiver. If that weren’t enough, onboard Faroudja DCDi Cinema™ scales all standard definition sources to 1080p for HDMI output, or to 1080i for component video output. Endowed with the amplification power and dependability expected from an Onkyo A/V receiver, the TX-SR806 stands out as a natural choice for highperformance home theater.

          Comments about Onkyo THX Ultra 2 Plus Certified 7.1 Channel Home Theater Black Receiver:

          I found the unit hard to set up at first. [...] As it turns out, it was the settings in the Onkyo that was causing the problem (the 2nd support rep. found the problem in 5 minutes). The True HD sound sounds very good but the dolby digital sound doesn't seen to have the dynamic range my Harman Kardon AVR 635 had. I think I need to tweek some of the auto set-ups created by the supplied set-up microphone.

              Comments about Onkyo THX Ultra 2 Plus Certified 7.1 Channel Home Theater Black Receiver:

              I use it as a home theater and audio center (DVD/ CD/ cable). I'm buying the Onkyo iPOD dock.
              Pros: Setup was amazingly easy. The variety of sound fields and the ease of switching between them make this an excellent unit. The receiver does much of the sound field selection automatically, but you can manually override it to select, for example, Pure Audio stereo for your CD. Plenty of power for my 24 x 18 x 8 listening area. The remote is easy to program and the macros make routine listening /viewing selections very simple. THX is a big plus for me.
              Cons:The HDMI passthrough restricts screen size if the receiver is not set to a video input. This won't bother most people, but I often browse cable channels while playing the tuner or a CD. There is no USB connection.
