I agree. A very agressive pricepoint for THX certification. And with features like HDMI 1.4, HDMI through, and Audessey DSX, and 3D Ready!

yes, there is a powered zone 2. The beefed up amplifier section also may be the story behind the roughly 1.5 pounds of additional weight.

I miss that too. I have the TX-NR1007, and one of the features missing is the coffee warmer. It does not get too hot, at least that I have noticed.

Hello,

The description of the amplifier section (3 Stage Inverted Darlington Circuitry)

is the same as has been used in the TX-SR805, 875, 876, 905, 906, 1007, 3007,and 5007.


I do wonder if the TX-SR608 will share the same thermal characteristics of running hot. Unfortunately, the chances of the 608 having preamp outputs is slim. Truly am looking forward to reading about the upper level Series.

Cheers,

AD

I would agree. I am not sure that it will have a tendancy to run hot, but with the said amplifier design and THX certification, it looks like some of the features are trickling down the line. Probably no line outs, since that would ahve been referenced in the press release I posted at the beginning. But I am betting money that the new 708 gets networking capabilities, once it is announced.

"Additionally, all 2010 HDMI v1.4 models include a new feature call HDMI Thru. HDMI Thru allows content to pass through to the TV when the receiver is in a standby state"


Sweet deal!

there are no line outs on the 608.

With all the other features that trickled down to the 608 I'm wondering if they will even make a 708.


I mean if it doesn't have networking what else would distinguish it from the 608? The 608 picked up the THX certification, the Burr-Brown DACs, 1080p upscaling, more power, Audyssey DSX, etc.


I mean are pre-outs and the better Audyssey calibration enough to justify a separate tier without networking? And then if they include networking in the 708 how will they distinguish the 808?


With how good the 608 is looking with all the featues they flowed down to it, its hard to picture justifying both the 708 and 808, unless Onkyo is going to continue to blow us away with even more features on their higher end units... Maybe the 808 or 1008 and above will step up to streaming video in addition to streaming audio -- netflix, youtube, windows media center extender, etc. -- that would be amazing.

Depends if you need to pass through 3D signals. Without 1.4 you will not be able to use 3D video... (my understanding)
