There’s two superb surround-sound technologies using the TX-SC608.. There is a new dimension of sound for the games or movies, this is with both Audyssey DSX with also the Dolby Pro Logic lIz. It can even reconfigure the back channels to “front height” channels. While using the “front wide” speakers instead of the back speakers could give a more realistic listening experience with the Audyssey DSX. This could better expand the width of your soundstage.

The TX-SR608 has long been described as an “amazing receiver for a reasonable price.” The features that many customers rave about is its value with great sound and may even be a space saver. The great features that many customers praise about this home theater receiver is its 3D capability at such a bargained price. Most owners of this system say that they would purchase it again.
There exists although a slight issue with the volume, because it cannot produce volume at a very high level and has difficulty when switching between the inputs. There would be a need to increase the volume to at least 50% for the audio sources. The audio could possibly get to a loud enough level after doing this adjustment.
It is such an excellent receiver that you would not even mind the minor issues. The Onkyo TX-SR608 audio receiver is overall a great system even with the minor issues. If there are people looking for a superior quality receiver, I would surely recommend this unit with its advanced features and connection capabilities. To include on top of that, the 3D feature makes it a technologically advanced system.
