Conclusions about the Onkyo TX-SR706 7.1 A/V Receiver

I truly enjoyed using the Onkyo. It has all of the features I need and sounded very good with all of my sources. However, my feelings for the TX-SR706 are colored, much like they were for the TX-SR576, by the model that sits between them in Onkyo's range, the TX-SR606. The TX-SR706 commands a significant $300 premium over the TX-SR606 and for that you get THX certification, more advanced video processing, pre-amp outputs and a phono input. I personally put a significant premium on pre-amp outputs and having the THX processing was nice, but you will have to determine the value of those features to decide whether or not the TX-SR706 is the right receiver for you. If you find the TX-SR706's value proposition compelling, you can be assured that you will be getting a full featured, well designed and great sounding receiver.
