The Yamaha HTR-6060 is a low-to-mid range a/v receiver as part Yamaha's lineup HTR receivers. It is a 7.1 channel receiver with 2 x HDMI inputs, and outputs up to 90 Watts RMS of power per channel. It has similar specs to the Yamaha RX-V661, but drops multizone capabilities. The HTR-6060 is a competitor to the popular, and similarly priced, Onkyo TX-SR605 but differs in two significant ways: 1) it supports only HDMI 1.2a whereas the Onkyo supports the HDMI 1.3 standard, and 2) it does not upconvert its analog S-Video inputs to HDMI.
