When almost the same Surround prozessor and digital video Board in the larger TX SR 806 (12/08) earned it respect, you deserve all respect in the RX V 706.

Again, two DSPs endeavour inter alia to the THX processing including a new loudness function. And again, a high-calibre FLI 30336 by Genesis/Faroudja brings together line by line, more elaborate taking account of movements to new images.

Still she can scale too with HDMI input signals or attach a la “contrast” and “Hue” video fine adjustments.

The limitations: It was now at four instead of five HDMI inputs. Also, the TX-SR 706 converts old video but still on HDMI high, he converted but no more back and forth between analog formats.

That the smaller Onkyo instead of two has only a (not disturbing) fan, will feel the music lover as an advantage. As well, that the TX-SR 706 CD playback not so over agitator-acts like the 806, but rather moderate calmly and smoothly. Maybe a little too good, for an even better touch the bass should have come gnarled and piano tones funkelnder something.

The moves, said then but appreciative at the outdated surround – also when he appeared at Dolby Digital times almost gruff.

At DTS, the Onkyo that built all the plastic about Medeski drums; I love how he left thrash drummer, angry E-bass and shred the Hohner organ.

With even more momentum, the TX-SR 706 in the HD world rushed to join then such as Peter of Gabriel’s “Solsbury Hill” (DTS-HD Demo) its limits.

The tester raunten “Be careful, boy”. Instead of getting away discreetly to duck, began to rumble bottom 706 prefer something.

Any Uncultivated but disappeared with external front amplifiers. The Onkyo must not be so to the debate, even if it was not quite enough to the high-end accolade.
