Score 10.0/10
Good points:
I pluged it into my samsung TV and Blu Ray then into my humax freesat box and it works perfectly. When I turn my TV on the Av starts within 10 secs giving me stereo TV (simulated) from the hdmi input of my Humax box. The sound is clear and even the subwoofer comes into play but the moment I turn on the Blu Ray player the sound is simply amazing. Avatar was a joy to listen too. The quality of THX sound is unbelivable or if you want Dolby or Mono the choice is yours but you'll be amazed. I have it set up as a 7.1 system and every speaker is crystal clear, and because you can set it up to suit the room with a feedback mic everyone gets good sound no matter where they sit.
Bad points:
FM aerial is pants.

Roland, Stoke on Trent

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
Sound quality and functionality. Remote is basically a bonus as it is a universal remote for all (or most devices)
Bad points:
Set-up is involved (I suspect that all modern AV amps are the same) I have had problems with audio sync mostly resolved and I am not sure that the remaining issues are actually down to the amp. The remote does not seem to take on all the functionality of the remote's it is copying, for example you cannot as far as I can make out record on Sky with the Onkyo remote.

Manufacturer's Description

ure, we call it an “entry-level” A/V receiver. But when you witness the full potential of the TX-SR608, you’ll know the level you’re entering is far beyond the ordinary. For a start, you get six of the latest HDMI® 1.4a inputs for simple hook-up of all your high-def sources. HDMI 1.4a also brings compatibility with the new 3D video format, as well as an Audio Return Channel from your display back to the receiver. Complementing HDMI on the input front, you have an analog RGB video input for connecting your PC, and a Universal Port for Onkyo peripherals. All video sources, regardless of resolution, can be upscaled to big and beautiful 1080p via HDMI and Faroudja DCDi Cinema™. Audio processing incorporates quality Burr-Brown DACs, lossless Dolby and DTS codecs, and the expanded surround formats of Audyssey DSX™ and Dolby Pro Logic® IIz. Three-stage inverted Darlington circuitry and jitter-cleaning technology work to ensure extremely precise and faithful amplification. In recognition of the TX-SR608’s outstanding A/V prowess, it has been awarded THX® Select2 Plus Certification.
