The Onkyo TX-SR608 is a mid-range A/V receiver very similar to the Onkyo TX-SR508. However, the SR608 boasts a number of key improvements over the SR508, including: a 7.2 channel THX-Select2 Plus-certified receiver at 100 watts per channel (as opposed to the 508's 7.1 channel), 6 HDMI 1.4 inputs (as opposed to 4), 1080p upscaling available on all video sources and a rear PC (VGA) port.

The TX-SR608's 7.2 channel THX-Select2 Plus-certified receiver is supported by a variety of high-end components for the best possible audio quality, components such as: Burr-Brown DACs, three-stage inverted Darlington circuitry and jitter-cleaning technology. Its HDMI 1.4 inputs provides the TX-SR608 with 3D video transmission capability between two 3D capable devices as well as Audio Return Channel two-way audio transmission while also providing 1080p upscaling available on all video sources thanks to Faroudja DCDi cinema. Additionally, an analogue VGA port allows for direct connectivity to your PC for a broader multimedia experience.
