The 08s' will be out in the April/May window..

However don't look for any significant changes as they already occupy the top-selling AVR slots in North America.

Even after seeing the latest AVRs @ CES 2008, we don't know any other brand delivering an AVR including HDMI 1.3, repeater, HD decoders that is lower in cost then the 605..


Just my $0.03.5..

Why would you go with a 705 that costs $649 everywhere you look when you can get the 805 for only $699 from Amazon!

Vann's has Silver Onkyo 705 for 599.99 shipped or you could try what I did.


Go to 6th Ave and put the Silver 605 receiver in the cart and the use cat6off code to get it down to $561 shipped.


It is out of stock now but YMMV to get another dealer to price match.

Anything new on this topic? Been wanting to upgrade for the last year or so, but thought I'd at least wait and see if next year's models had anything new feature wise worth holding out for. The prices on the 2007's have really come down lately!

in germany onkyo will present an 906 at the IFA this summer (september '08).

this receiver will be a "refurbished" 905 with some new chips and same design as far as I read.


in germany we have probs with the 905 on blue-ray's/hd-dvd's coming from the label "concorde".

there are some loud "bangs" on the dts-hd master layer by bitstream.

e.g. in Master And Commander, 12 Monkeys, Tomb Raider 2.

In a Statement of DTS-Global Product Manager to Concorde he said that receivers from Yamaha and Onkyo have defective dts-chips which cause the "plopps/bangs".
