Control at your fingertips
Dolby Pro Logic IIz for a 3-Dimensional Sound Field
Dolby Pro Logic IIz offers the proven quality of Dolby Pro Logic IIx and adds a new vertical dimension to your home theater soundstage. As with previous versions of Dolby Pro Logic, this latest version delivers a convincing surround-sound experience from any movie or music source--even a stereo one. On the TX-SR607, Dolby Pro Logic IIz enables you to incorporate two "front height" speakers into your surround-sound set-up as an alternative to the two surround back speakers. The front height channels carry ambient, non-directional audio that helps immerse you even more deeply into your movies and games. With Dolby Pro Logic IIz, rain seems to burst from clouds right above you, and helicopters fly realistically overhead
A Full Range of the Latest High-Definition Surround-Sound Codecs
The TX-SR607 handles Dolby® TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio --two lossless decoding formats that enable delivery of a bit-for-bit soundtrack identical to the studio master track. Both codecs take advantage of the high data capacity of the Blu-ray Disc (BD) format. Another BD-related technology is DTS-HD Express, which provides access to secondary audio features. The TX-SR607 also handles two "lossy" audio formats: Dolby® Digital Plus and DTS-HD High Resolution Audio. Dolby Digital Plus is designed to accompany high-definition video delivered via disc media, broadcasts, and online content. DTS-HD High Resolution Audio, meanwhile, offers a greater bit rate, a higher sampling rate, and more channels than the core DTS technology.
A Suite of Audyssey Technologies for the Ideal Listening Environment
The TX-SR607 has three Audyssey technologies to help create the most suitable listening environment for your home. The first is Audyssey 2EQ for Room Acoustic Correction. The TX-SR607 uses Audyssey 2EQ to counter distortion created by walls, furniture, and other objects. This technology detects speaker distance, and then sets levels, delays, and crossovers, while also measuring room acoustics. Compared to one-position room correction systems, Audyssey 2EQ covers a much wider listening area. Moreover, it corrects problems in both frequency response and time domain (where most of the problems lie) across the entire listening area. The results are immediately obvious--a clear, well-balanced, and natural sound.
The second is Audyssey Dynamic Volume control. This technology allows you to set the volume level that you want and keep it there, without having to constantly adjust it. By anticipating sudden spikes and dips in the audio soundtrack and compensating for them in real time, Audyssey Dynamic Volume ensures consistent volume levels, regardless of the content you're enjoying. Thanks to Audyssey Dynamic Volume, quiet dialogue is easier to pick up, loud passages retain their impact, and commercials are less intrusive.
The third is Audyssey Dynamic EQ for Loudness Correction. In professional sound studios, music and movies are recorded at reference levels far louder than what is typical for home listening. As a result, when you play audio content at a low volume on a standard home theater receiver, the bass disappears, voices change in timbre, and the surround soundstage loses definition. To counteract this audio deterioration, Audyssey Dynamic EQ continuously adjusts frequency response and the surround soundstage loses definition. To counteract this audio deterioration, Audyssey Dynamic EQ continuously adjusts frequency response and surround levels to produce the ideal balance for a given volume level.

Top Customer Reviews
Someone mentioned that it does not have HDMI pass-through but this is incorrrect. It does. You have to flip the switch in the setup menu, but it is there. The upscaling for non-HD tv leaves something to be desired but otherwise I think it actually improved my HD viewing from my FIOS box.
My only negative so far if you can call it that was no XM interface, only Sirius. With the merger I'm hoping that won't be a big issue, but that is really not a major negative at all for me. Would have prefered that it had HD-Radio unit built in rather than HD-ready but again, don't listen to the radio that much. The remote could be better. I too hate having to push the receiver button, but once I get the universal programmed it'll go in the drawer with all the others.
I was down to this model vs. the Denon 1909, but after reading all the stories of how difficult it was to set up and the extra $71 off at checkout, this choice is really a no brainer. I have not run into any of the humming or running hot issues that so many have claimed on other Onkyo units. I'm starting to think this is a myth. I used to sell stereo equipment and I got more Denon's returned on me than any other brand. One even caught fire in the showroom. Never had any trouble with the Onkyo's.
No other receiver in this price range can come close to this value.
UPDATE: Two years in now with this unit and still extremely pleased with it. It is a little bit finicky sometimes powering up in sequence with Cable Box and TV with Universal remote, but otherwise a great purchase. I have it powering old 5.1 Velodynes and it really sounds great.
It took about five minutes to hook up the 607, and another five minutes to figure out the menu system. The only reason I cracked open the docs was to figure out how to launch the much-vaunted Audessy speaker configuration procedure. It took another ten minutes to run thru the Audessy setup, and then I was cleared for weird.
Having become somewhat familiar with the 607 over the last four days or so, I must say that I have a few reasons to favor my old 674, but I think those concerns will be overcome once I break open the docs and start tweaking the 607. My only real disappointment so far is in the video upconversion (or lack of it). Standard definition broadcasts don't appear nearly as good on my three and a half year old Hitachi 42" 1080i plasma as they did when processed by the 674; nor do my DVDs, for that matter. I'm hopeful that this is one of those issues that'll be smoothed out once I get in bed with the docs and learn how to enhance the output.
The widespread complaint about having to attenuate the subwoofer output following the Audessy configuration appears to be a valid one. I've been playing with my subwoofer volume and crossover controls since day one and still can't get them right - I'm getting rumble when there shouldn't be any in the soundtrack. This is beyond my ability to comprehend because my subwoofer is passive - it hangs off my front surround speakers, not the receiver. I may have to either attenuate my front surround speakers or invest in a new subwoofer to fix this problem.
As to the rumored heat/ventilation issue: my 607 is in a rack that allows it only two inches of clearance on either side, 4 inches above, and four inches to an open rear, and it seems to run well within tolerance (and much cooler than my old 674). But then again, it's only driving a 5.1 8-ohm configuration and, as I mentioned above, the subwoofer's passive.
To this point, the only other problem I'm having is with the remote - it keeps activating my old 674, which is in another rack 4 1/2 feet away. This is probably fixable by changing the ID of the remote - which is another one of those things I'll figure out when I read the docs.
As regards cosmetics: my old 674 has a silver face with yellow LEDs and a blue backlight on the volume knob; it's sharper than 8 razor blades. The new 607 has a black face with green LEDs and no backlight; it's about as sharp as a ball bearing. Be that as it may, if I can get five years out of the new one, I'll be over the moon.
At bottom, I don't think you can find this feature set anywhere else at the $350 - $400 pricepoint. You may be able to next month, but for the time being, I think this is the mid-price receiver to beat.
UPDATE: Nearly 7 years later, this unit is still performing very well. I particularly like the auto-switching features. I'm upgrading my rating to 5 stars.
After a solid week of owning the 607 model I can honestly say I'm just as happy and possibly happier. The 607 has the same onscreen menu as before but what makes me more impressed was the audyssey microphone for tuning your speakers according to your room setup. The hardware in the new receiver seems to have been more define and precise in its tuning calibration. Once the setup was complete I was amazed on how listening to TV shows broadcasted surround sound.
These receivers also work well with the Logitech Harmony Universal remotes. I have had my remote for over 3 years now and 3 receivers and it work 100% in everything I need it to do.
Over all I find Onkyo receivers to be one of the best brands out on the market. From their product, customer services and price how can you go wrong?
