Precautions
1. Recording Copyright—Unless it’s for personal use
only, recording copyrighted material is illegal without the permission of the copyright holder.
2. AC Fuse—The AC fuse inside the unit is not userserviceable. If you cannot turn on the unit, contact
your Onkyo dealer.
3. Care—Occasionally you should dust the unit all
over with a soft cloth. For stubborn stains, use a soft
cloth dampened with a weak solution of mild detergent and water. Dry the unit immediately afterwards
with a clean cloth. Don’t use abrasive cloths, thinners, alcohol, or other chemical solvents, because
they may damage the finish or remove the panel lettering.
4. Power
WARNING
BEFORE PLUGGING IN THE UNIT FOR THE
FIRST TIME, READ THE FOLLOWING SECTION CAREFULLY.
AC outlet voltages vary from country to country.
Make sure that the voltage in your area meets the
voltage requirements printed on the unit’s rear panel
(e.g., AC 230 V, 50 Hz or AC 120 V, 60 Hz).
The power cord plug is used to disconnect this unit
from the AC power source. Make sure that the plug
is readily operable (easily accessible) at all times.
Some models have a voltage selector switch for
compatibility with power systems around the world.
Before you plug in this model, make sure that the
voltage selector is set to the correct voltage for your
area. If it isn’t, use a small screwdriver to set it as
appropriate. For example, if the voltage in your area
is 120 volts, set the selector to “120V.” If it’s
between 220 and 240 volts, set it to “220-240V.”

Connecting Your Speakers
Enjoying Home Theater
Thanks to the AV receiver’s superb capabilities, you can enjoy surround sound with a real sense of movement in your
own home—just like being in a movie theater or concert hall. You can enjoy DVDs featuring Dolby Digital or DTS.
With analog or digital TV, you can enjoy Dolby Pro Logic IIx, DTS Neo:6, or Onkyo’s original DSP listening modes.
Front left and right speakers
These output the main sound. Their role in a home theater is to provide a solid
anchor for the sound image. They should be positioned facing the listener at
about ear level, and equally spaced from the TV. Angle them inward slightly so
as to create a triangle, with the listener at the apex.
Center speaker
This speaker enhances the front left
and right speakers, making sound
movements distinct and providing a
full sound image. For movies it’s used
mainly for dialog.
Position it close to your TV (preferably
on top) facing forward at about ear
level, or at the same height as the
front left and right speakers.
Subwoofer
The subwoofer handles the bass sounds of
the LFE (Low-Frequency Effects) channel.
The volume and quality of the bass output
from your subwoofer will depend on its position, the shape of your listening room, and
your listening position. In general, a good bass
sound can be obtained by installing the subwoofer in a front corner, or at one-third the way
along the front wall, as shown.
Surround back left and right speakers
These speakers are necessary to enjoy Dolby Digital
EX, DTS-ES Matrix, DTS-ES Discrete, etc. They
enhance the realism of surround sound and improve
sound localization behind the listener. Position them
behind the listener about 2–3 feet (60–100 cm) above
ear level.
Tip: To find the best position for your subwoofer, while playing a movie or some music
with good bass, experiment by placing your
subwoofer at various positions within the room
and choose the one that provides the most
satisfying results.
Corner
position
1/3 of wall

Surround left and right speakers
These speakers are used for precise
sound positioning and to add realistic
ambience.
Position them at the sides of the listener, or slightly behind, about 2–3 feet
(60–100 cm) above ear level. Ideally
they should be equally spaced from the
listener.

Speaker Configuration
Connecting a Powered Subwoofer
For 7.1-channel surround-sound playback, you need
seven speakers and a powered subwoofer.
Using a suitable cable, connect the AV receiver’s PRE
OUT: SUBWOOFER to the input on your powered subwoofer. If your subwoofer is unpowered and you’re
using an external amplifier, connect the PRE OUT: SUBWOOFER to the amp’s input.

No matter how many speakers you use, a powered subwoofer is recommended for a powerful and solid bass.
To get the best from your surround-sound system, you
must set the speaker settings. You can do this automatically (see page 38) or manually (see page 72).
Using Dipole Speakers
You can use dipole speakers for the surround left and
right and surround back left and right speakers. Dipole
speakers output the same sound in two directions.
Dipole speakers typically have an arrow printed on them to
indicate how they should be positioned. The surround left
and right dipole speakers should be positioned so that their
arrows point toward your TV or screen, while the surround
back left and right dipolar speakers should be positioned
so that their arrows point toward each other, as shown.

Speaker Connection Precautions
Read the following before connecting your speakers:
• North American models: You can connect speakers
with an impedance of between 6 and 16 ohms. If you
use speakers with a lower impedance, and use the
amplifier at high volume levels for a long period of
time, the built-in amp protection circuit may be activated.
• Other models: You can connect speakers with an
impedance of between 4 and 16 ohms. If the impedance of any of the connected speakers is 4 ohms or
more, but less than 6 ohms, be sure to set the minimum
speaker impedance to “4 ohms” (see page 42). If you
use speakers with a lower impedance, and use the
amplifier at high volume levels for a long period of
time, the built-in amp protection circuit may be activated.
• Disconnect the power cord from the wall outlet before
making any connections.
• Read the instructions supplied with your speakers.
• Pay close attention to speaker wiring polarity. Connect
positive (+) terminals to only positive (+) terminals,
and negative (–) terminals to only negative (–) terminals. If you get them the wrong way around, the sound
will be out of phase and will sound unnatural.
• Unnecessarily long or very thin speaker cables may
affect the sound quality and should be avoided.
• Be careful not to short the
positive and negative wires.
Doing so may damage the AV
receiver.
• Don’t connect more than one
cable to each speaker terminal. Doing so may damage the
AV receiver.
• Don’t connect a speaker to several terminals.
Connecting the Speaker Cables
1
Strip about 5/8" (15
mm) of insulation from
the ends of the
speaker cables, and
twist the bare wires
tightly, as shown.
2
Unscrew the terminal.
3
Fully insert the bare wire.
4
Screw the terminal tight.
The following illustration shows which speaker should
be connected to each pair of terminals.
If you’re using only one surround back speaker, connect
it to the left (L) SURR BACK SPEAKERS terminals.

Bi-amping Speaker Hookup
Bi-amping Front Speakers
The FRONT L/R and SURR BACK L/R terminal posts
can be used with front speakers and surround back
speakers respectively, or bi-amped to provide separate
tweeter and woofer feeds for front speakers, providing
improved bass and treble performance.
• When bi-amping is used, the AV receiver is able to
drive up to 5.1 speakers in the main room.
• For bi-amping, the FRONT L/R terminal posts connect to the front speakers’ tweeter terminals. And the
SURR BACK L/R terminal posts connect to the front
speakers’ woofer terminals.
• Once you’ve completed the bi-amping connections
shown below and turned on the AV receiver, you must
set the Speaker Type setting to Bi-Amp to enable biamping (see page 42).
Important:
• When making the bi-amping connections, be sure
to remove the jumper bars that link the speakers’
tweeter (high) and woofer (low) terminals.
• Bi-amping can only be used with speakers that support
bi-amping. Refer to your speaker manual.
1
Connect the AV receiver’s FRONT R positive (+)
terminal to the right speaker’s positive (+) tweeter
(high) terminal. And connect the AV receiver’s
FRONT R negative (–) terminal to the right
speaker’s negative (–) tweeter (high) terminal.
2
Connect the AV receiver’s SURR BACK R positive (+) terminal to the right speaker’s positive (+)
woofer (low) terminal. And connect the AV
receiver’s SURR BACK R negative (–) terminal to

Notes:
• Outdoor FM antennas work best outside, but usable
results can sometimes be obtained when installed in an
attic or loft.
• For best results, install the outdoor FM antenna well
away from tall buildings, preferably with a clear line
of sight to your local FM transmitter.
• Outdoor antenna should be located away from possible noise sources, such as neon signs, busy roads, etc.
• For safety reasons, outdoor antenna should be situated
well away from power lines and other high-voltage
equipment.
• Outdoor antenna must be grounded in accordance
with local regulations to prevent electrical shock hazards.
ANTENNA
Outdoor AM antennas work best when installed horizontally outside, but good results can sometimes be obtained
indoors by mounting horizontally above a window. Note
that the AM loop antenna should be left connected.
Outdoor antenna must be grounded in accordance with
local regulations to prevent electrical shock hazards.
■ Using a TV/FM Antenna Splitter
It’s best not to use the same antenna for both FM and TV
reception, as this can cause interference problems. If circumstances demand it, use a TV/FM antenna splitter, as
shown.

Connecting Audio and Video Signals to the AV Receiver
By connecting both the audio and video outputs of your DVD player and other AV components to the AV receiver, you
can switch the audio and video signals simultaneously simply by changing the input source on the AV receiver.

Which Connections Should I Use?
The AV receiver supports several connection formats for compatibility with a wide range of AV equipment. The format
you choose will depend on the formats supported by your other components. Use the following sections as a guide.
For video components, you must make an audio connection and a video connection.
Audio Connection Formats
Audio equipment can be connected to the AV
receiver by using any of the following audio
connection formats: analog, optical, coaxial,
analog multichannel, or HDMI.
When you connect audio equipment to an
HDMI, OPTICAL, or COAXIAL input, you
must assign that input to an input selector (see
pages 44).
When choosing a connection format, bear in
mind that the AV receiver does not convert digital input signals for analog line outputs and
vice versa. For example, audio signals connected to an optical or coaxial digital input are
not output by the analog TAPE OUT.

If signals are present at more than one input, the inputs will be selected automatically in the following order of priority:
HDMI, digital, analog (including multichannel). You can specify which audio inputs the AV receiver checks for the
presence of a signal in the “Automatic Audio Input Selection Setup” on page 46.

Video Connection Formats
Video equipment can be connected to the AV
receiver by using any one of the following
video connection formats: composite video,
S-Video, component video, or HDMI, the latter offering the best picture quality.
Video input signals flow through the AV
receiver as shown, with composite video, SVideo, and component video sources all being
upconverted for the HDMI output.
Video Signal Flow Chart
DVD player, etc.
Composite
If signals are present at more than one input,
the inputs will be selected automatically in the
following order of priority: HDMI, component
video, S-Video, composite video. However, for
component video only, regardless of whether a
component video signal is actually present, if a
component video input is assigned to the input
selector, that component video input will be
selected. And if no component video input is
assigned to the input selector, this will be interpreted as no component video signal being
present.
In the Signal Selection Example shown on the
right, video signals are present at both the
S-Video and composite video inputs, however,
the S-Video signal is automatically selected as
the source and video is output by the S-Video
and HDMI outputs.

Hooking Up the Multichannel Input
If your DVD player supports multichannel audio formats such as DVD-Audio and SACD, and it has a multichannel
analog audio output, you can connect it to the AV receiver’s multichannel input.
Use a multichannel analog audio cable, or several normal audio cables, to connect the AV receiver’s DVD IN FRONT
L/R, CENTER, SURR L/R, SURR BACK L/R, and SUBWOOFER jacks to the 7.1-channel analog audio output on your
DVD player. If your DVD player has a 5.1-channel analog audio output, don’t connect anything to the AV receiver’s
SURR BACK L/R jacks.
To select the multichannel input, see “Basic AV Receiver Operation” on page 47. To adjust the subwoofer sensitivity for
the multichannel input, see “Hardware Setup” on page 79.

Notes:
• The AV receiver must be turned on for recording. Recording is not possible while it’s on Standby.
• If you want to record directly from your TV or another video source without going through the AV receiver, connect
the audio and video outputs from your TV or other video component directly to the recording VCR/DVR’s audio and
video inputs. See the manuals supplied with your TV or VCR/DVR for details.
• Video signals connected to composite video inputs can only be recorded via the VCR/DVR OUT V jack. So if your
source TV or VCR is connected to a composite video input, the recording VCR/DVR must be connected to the
VCR/DVR OUT V jack. Likewise, video signals connected to S-Video inputs can only be recorded via the VCR/DVR
OUT S jack. So if your source TV or VCR is connected to an S-Video input, the recording VCR/DVR must be
connected to the VCR/DVR OUT S jack.

Connecting Components with HDMI
About HDMI
Designed to meet the increased demands of digital TV, HDMI (High Definition Multimedia Interface) is a new digital
interface standard for connecting TVs, projectors, DVD players, set-top boxes, and other video components. Until now,
several separate video and audio cables have been required to connect AV components. With HDMI, a single cable can
carry control signals, digital video, and up to eight channels of digital audio (2-channel PCM, multichannel digital
audio, or multichannel PCM).
The HDMI video stream (i.e., video signal) is compatible with DVI (Digital Visual Interface),*1 so TVs and displays
with a DVI input can be connected by using an HDMI-to-DVI adapter cable. (This may not work with some TVs and
displays, resulting in no picture.)
The AV receiver uses HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection), so only HDCP-compatible components will
display a picture.
The AV receiver’s HDMI interface is based on the following standard:
Repeater System, Deep Color, Lip Sync, DTS-HD Master Audio, DTS-HD High Resolution Audio, Dolby
TrueHD, Dolby Digital Plus, SA-CD and Multichannel PCM
Supported Audio Formats
• 2-channel linear PCM (16/20/24 bit/32–192kHz)
• Multichannel linear PCM (7.1 ch, 32–192kHz)
• Bitstream (Dolby Digital, Dolby Digital Plus, DTS, DTS-HD Master Audio, DTS-HD High Resolution Audio, Dolby
TrueHD, DSD)
Your DVD player must be able to output these formats from its HDMI OUT.
About Copyright Protection
The AV receiver supports HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection),*2 a copy-protection system for digital
video signals. Other devices connected to the AV receiver via HDMI must also support HDCP.
Use a commercially available HDMI cable (supplied with some components) to connect the AV receiver’s HDMI OUT
to the HDMI input on your TV or projector.
*1 DVI (Digital Visual Interface): The digital display interface standard set by the DDWG*3 in 1999.
*2 HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection): The video encryption technology developed by Intel for HDMI/DVI. It’s designed to
protect video content and requires a HDCP-compatible device to display the encrypted video.
*3 DDWG (Digital Display Working Group): Led by Intel, Compaq, Fujitsu, Hewlett Packard, IBM, NEC, and Silicon Image, this open
industry group’s objective is to address the industry's requirements for a digital connectivity specification for high-performance PCs and
digital displays.

Making HDMI Connections
Step 1: Use HDMI cables to connect the AV receiver’s HDMI jacks to your HDMI-compatible DVD player, TV,
projector, and so on.
Step 2: Assign each HDMI IN to an input selector in the HDMI Input Setup (see page 43).
■ Video Signals
Digital video signals received by the HDMI IN jacks are normally output by the HDMI OUT for display on your TV.
Composite video, S-Video, and component video sources can be upconverted for the HDMI output. See “Video Connection Formats” on page 22 for more information.
■ Audio Signals
Digital audio signals received by the HDMI IN jacks are output by the speakers and headphones connected to the AV
receiver. Normally, they are not output by the HDMI OUT, unless the Audio TV Out setting is set to On (see page 81).
Hint!
To listen to audio received by the HDMI IN jacks through your TV’s speakers, set the Audio TV Out
setting to On (see page 81), and set your DVD player’s HDMI audio output setting to PCM.

Notes:
• The HDMI video stream is compatible with DVI (Digital Visual Interface), so TVs and displays with a DVI input can
be connected by using an HDMI-to-DVI adapter cable. (Note that DVI connections only carry video, so you’ll need
to make a separate connection for audio.) However, reliable operation with such an adapter is not guaranteed. In
addition, video signals from a PC are not supported.
• When listening to an HDMI component through the AV receiver, set the HDMI component so that its video can be
seen on the TV screen (on the TV, select the input of the HDMI component connected to the AV receiver). If the TV
power is off or the TV is set to another input source, this may result in no sound from the AV receiver or the sound
may be cut off.
• The HDMI audio signal (sampling rate, bit length, etc.) may be restricted by the connected source component. If the
picture is poor or there’s no sound from a component connected via HDMI, check its setup. Refer to the connected
component’s instruction manual for details.

Connecting Onkyo
Components
Step 1: Make sure that each Onkyo component is connected to the AV receiver with an analog audio cable (RCA).
Step 2: Make the necessary
connections (see illustration below).
Step 3: If you’re using an MD, CDR, or RI DOCK component, change the Input Display (see page 45).
With
(Remote Interactive), you can use the following special functions:
Auto Power On/Standby
When you start playback on a component connected via
, if the AV receiver is on Standby, it will automatically turn
on and select that component as the input source. Similarly, when the AV receiver is set to Standby, all components
connected via
will also go on Standby. This function will not work with components that are connected to an AC
OUTLET on the AV receiver.
Direct Change
When playback is started on a component connected via
, the AV receiver automatically selects that component as
the input source. If your DVD player is connected to the AV receiver’s DVD IN (multichannel input), you’ll need to
press the [MULTI CH] button repeatedly and select Multich to hear all channels (see page 47), as the Direct Change
function selects the DVD IN FRONT L/R jacks.
Remote Control
You can use the AV receiver’s remote controller to control your other
-capable Onkyo components. You must enter
the appropriate remote control code first (see page 88). And remember to point the remote controller at the AV receiver
and not the other component.
Notes:
• Use only
cables for
connections.
cables
are supplied with Onkyo players (DVD, CD, etc.).
• Some components have two
jacks. You can connect either one to the AV receiver. The other jack is
for connecting additional
-capable components.
• Connect only Onkyo components to
jacks. Connecting other manufacturer’s components may cause
a malfunction.
• Some components may not support all
functions.
Refer to the manuals supplied with your other Onkyo
components.
• While Zone 2 is on, the Auto Power On/Standby and
Direct Change
functions do not work.

prevent any loud surprises the next time you turn on the AV receiver, turn down the
volume before you turn it off.
Up and Running in a Few Easy Steps
To get your system up and running with the minimum of fuss, here’s a few pointers to help you configure the AV
receiver before you use it for the very first time. These settings only need to be made once.
■ Do the automatic speaker setup—this is essential!
See “Automatic Speaker Setup” on page 38.
■ Did you connect a component to an HDMI input,
component video input, or digital audio input?
If you did, see “HDMI Input Setup” on page 43, “Component Video
Input Setup” on page 44, or “Digital Input Setup” on page 44 respectively.
■ Did you connect an Onkyo MD recorder, CD recorder, or RI
Dock?
If you did, see “Changing the Input Display” on page 45.

First Time Setup
This section explains the settings that you need to make before using the AV receiver for the very first time.
Using Audyssey 2EQ
Automatic Speaker Setup
With the supplied calibrated microphone, Audyssey 2EQ
automatically determines the number of speakers connected, their size for purposes of bass management,
optimum crossover frequencies to the subwoofer (if
present), and distances from the primary listening position. Audyssey 2EQ then removes the distortion caused
by room acoustics by capturing room acoustical problems over the listening area in both the frequency and
time domain. The result is clear, well-balanced sound for
everyone. Enabling Audyssey 2EQ allows you to also
use Audyssey Dynamic EQ, which maintains the proper
octave-to-octave balance at any volume level. (See
page 70)
Measurement Positions
Notes:
• If any of your speakers is 4 ohms, change the
Speaker Impedance setting before running the
automatic speaker setup (see page 42).
• If the AV receiver is muted, it will be unmuted
automatically when the automatic speaker setup
starts.
• Automatic speaker setup cannot be performed
while a pair of headphones is connected.
• It takes about 10 minutes to complete the automatic speaker setup for three positions. Total measurement time varies depending on the speakers.
• Do not connect or disconnect any speakers during
the automatic speaker setup.
To create a listening environment in which several
people can enjoy your home theater simultaneously,
Audyssey 2EQ takes measurements at three positions
within the listening area.

AUDYSSEY
If you’re using a powered subwoofer, as it outputs very
low-frequency sound and its position is usually low down,
it may not be detected by the automatic speaker setup. In
this case, increase the subwoofer’s volume, select its
highest crossover frequency, and then try running the
automatic speaker setup again. Note that if the volume is
set too high and the sound distorts, it may not be detected,
so use an appropriate volume level. If the subwoofer has
a low-pass filter switch, set it to Off or Direct. Refer to
your subwoofer’s instruction manual for details.

RDS only works in areas where RDS broadcasts are
available. When tuned to an RDS station, the RDS indicator appears.

■ What is RDS?
RDS stands for Radio Data System and is a method of
transmitting data in FM radio signals. It was developed
by the European Broadcasting Union (EBU) and is available in most European countries. RDS is approved by the
National Radio Systems Committee (NRSC) and is
available in North America.
Many FM stations use it these days. In addition to displaying text information, RDS can also help you find
radio stations by type (e.g., news, sport, rock, etc.).
The AV receiver supports four types of RDS information:

Pure Audio (not North American models)
In this mode, the display and video circuitry are turned
off, minimizing possible noise sources for the ultimate in
high-fidelity reproduction. (As the video circuitry is
turned off, only the HDMI OUT outputs video.)
Direct
5.1-channel source + Dolby PLIIx Music
These modes use the Dolby Pro Logic IIx Music mode
to expand 5.1-channel sources for 6.1/7.1-channel playback.
In this mode, audio from the input source is output
directly with minimal processing, providing high-fidelity reproduction. All of the source’s audio channels are
output as they are.
These modes use the Dolby Pro Logic IIx Movie mode
to expand 5.1-channel sources for 7.1-channel playback.
Stereo
Dolby Digital Plus
Sound is output by the front left and right speakers and
subwoofer.
Developed for use with HDTV, including the new video
disc formats Blu-ray and HD DVD, this is the latest multichannel audio format from Dolby. It supports up to 7.1
channels with 48kHz sampling rate.
Mono
Use this mode when watching an old movie with a mono
soundtrack, or use it with the foreign language
soundtracks recorded in the left and right channels of
some movies. It can also be used with DVDs or other
sources containing multiplexed audio, such as karaoke
DVDs.
Dolby Pro Logic IIx
Dolby Pro Logic II
Dolby Pro Logic IIx expands any 2-channel source for
7.1-channel playback. It provides a very natural and
seamless surround-sound experience that fully envelops
the listener. As well as music and movies, video games

TX-SR606_En.book Page 65 Wednesday, March 5, 2008 10:30 AM
Using the Listening Modes—Continued
DTS-ES Discrete
This mode is for use with DTS-ES Discrete soundtracks,
that use a discrete surround back channel for true
6.1/7.1-channel playback. The seven totally separate
audio channels provide better spatial imaging and 360degree sound localization, perfect for sounds that pan
across the surround channels. Use it with DVDs that bear
the DTS-ES logo, especially those with a DTS-ES Discrete soundtrack.
DTS-ES Matrix
This mode is for use with DTS-ES Matrix soundtracks,
that use a matrix-encoded back-channel for 6.1/7.1channel playback. Use it with DVDs that bear the DTSES logo, especially those with a DTS-ES Matrix
soundtrack.
DTS Neo:6
This mode expands any 2-channel source for 7.1-channel playback. It uses seven full-bandwidth channels of
matrix decoding for matrix-encoded material, providing
a very natural and seamless surround sound experience
that fully envelops the listener.
•
Neo:6 Cinema
Use this mode with any stereo movie (e.g., TV,
DVD, VHS).
•
Neo:6 Music
Use this mode with any stereo music source (e.g.,
CD, radio, cassette, TV, VHS, DVD).
DSD
DSD stands for Direct Stream Digital and is the format
used to store digital audio on Super Audio CDs (SACD).
This mode can be used with SACDs that feature multichannel audio.
Onkyo Original DSP Modes
Mono Movie
This mode is suitable for old movies and other mono
sources. The center speaker outputs the sound as it is,
while reverb is applied to the sound output by the other
speakers, giving presence to even mono material.
Orchestra
Suitable for classical or operatic music, this mode
emphasizes the surround channels in order to widen the
stereo image and simulates the natural reverberation of a
large hall.
Unplugged
Suitable for acoustic instruments, vocals, and jazz, this
mode emphasizes the front stereo image, giving the
impression of being right in front of the stage.
Studio-Mix
Suitable for rock or pop music, listening to music in this
mode creates a lively sound field with a powerful acoustic image, like being at a club or rock concert.
5.1-channel source + Neo:6
TV Logic
This mode uses Neo:6 to expand 5.1-channel sources for
6.1/7.1-channel playback.
This mode adds realistic acoustics to TV shows produced in a TV studio, surround effects to the entire
sound, and clarity to voices.
DTS-HD High Resolution Audio
Developed for use with HDTV, including the new video
disc formats Blu-ray and HD DVD, this is the latest multichannel audio format from DTS. It supports up to 7.1
channels with 96 kHz sampling rate.
All Ch Stereo
Ideal for background music, this mode fills the entire listening area with stereo sound from the front, surround,
and surround back speakers.
DTS-HD Master Audio
Full Mono
Designed to take full advantage of the additional storage
space offered by the new Blu-ray and HD DVD disc formats, this new DTS format offers up to 7.1 discrete channels of digital audio with 48/96 kHz, up to 5.1-channels
with 192 kHz sampling rate.
For the signals supported by the AV receiver, see
page 62.
In this mode, all speakers output the same sound in
mono, so the sound you hear is the same regardless of
where you are within the listening room.
DTS Express
This format supports up to 5.1 channels and a lower sampling rate of 48 kHz. Applications include interactive
audio and commentary encoding for HD DVD Sub
Audio and Blu-ray Secondary Audio. Also broadcast and
media servers.
T-D (Theater-Dimensional)
or
With this mode you can enjoy a virtual 5.1 surround
sound even with only two or three speakers. This works
by controlling how sounds reach the listener’s left and
right ears. Good results may not be possible if there’s too
much reverb, so we recommend that you use this mode
in an environment with little or no natural reverb.

Recording
This section explains how to record the input source and
how to record audio and video from separate sources.
Notes:
• The surround sound and DSP listening modes cannot
be recorded.
• Copy-protected DVDs cannot be recorded.
• Sources connected to the analog multichannel input
cannot be recorded.
• Sources connected to a digital input cannot be
recorded. Only analog inputs can be recorded.
• DTS signals will be recorded as noise, so don’t
attempt analog recording of DTS CDs or LDs.
• While the Pure Audio listening mode is selected, the
VCR/DVR OUT V and S jacks don’t output video signals, so select another mode when recording.
Recording from Different AV Sources
You can overdub audio onto your video recordings by
simultaneously recording audio and video from two separate sources. This is possible because only the audio
source is switched when an audio-only input source,
such as TAPE, TUNER, or CD, is selected, the video
source remains the same.
In the following example, audio from the CD player connected to the CD IN and video from the camcorder connected to the AUX INPUT VIDEO jack are recorded by
the VCR connected to the VCR/DVR OUT jacks.

Adjusting the Listening Modes—Continued
■ Center Width
With this setting, you can adjust the width of the sound
from the center speaker when using the Dolby Pro Logic
IIx Music listening mode. Normally, if you’re using a
center speaker, the center channel sound is output by
only the center speaker. (If you’re not using a center
speaker, the center channel sound will be distributed to
the front left and right speakers to create a phantom center). This setting controls the front left, right, and center
mix, allowing you to adjust the weight of the center
channel sound. It can be adjusted from 0 to 7. The default
value is 3.
Neo:6 Music
■ Center Image
The DTS Neo:6 Music listening mode creates 6-channel
surround sound from 2-channel stereo sources. With this
setting, you can specify by how much the front left and
right channel output is attenuated in order to create the
center channel. It can be adjusted from 0 to 5. The
default value is 2.
When set to 0, the front left and right channel output is
attenuated by half (–6 dB), giving the impression that the
sound is located centrally. This setting works well when
the listening position is considerably off center. When
set to 5, the front left and right channels are not attenuated, maintaining the original stereo balance.
Dolby EX Settings
■ Dolby EX
This setting determines how Dolby EX signals are handled.
Auto: When the source is Dolby EX, you can select
the Dolby EX listening mode.
Manual: When the source is Dolby EX, you can select
any of the listening modes compatible with this

• The effect of the Late Night function depends on the
material that you are playing and the intention of the
original sound designer, and with some material there
will be little or no effect when you select the different
options.
• The Late Night function is set to Off when the AV
receiver is set to Standby. For Dolby TrueHD sources,
it will be set to Auto.
Tone Control Settings
You can adjust the bass and treble for the front speakers,

With Audyssey Dynamic EQ, you can enjoy great sound
even when listening at low volume levels.
You can adjust the volume of each speaker while listening to an input source.
These temporary adjustments are cancelled when the AV
receiver is set to Standby.
Audyssey Dynamic EQ solves the problem of deteriorating sound quality as volume is decreased by taking into
account human perception and room acoustics.
It does so by selecting the correct frequency response
and surround volume levels moment-by-moment so that
the content sounds the way it was created at any volume
level--not just at reference level.
Off: Audyssey Dynamic EQ off.
On: Audyssey Dynamic EQ on.
Note:
• Audyssey Dynamic EQ can be set only when the
Equalizer Settings on page 76 are set to Audyssey.
■ Subwoofer

Auto.
• With some TVs and input signals, no sound may be
output even if On is selected.
• When the Audio TV Out setting is set to On, or TV
Control is set to Enable and you’re listening through
your TV’s speakers (see page 31), if you turn up the

HDMI audio and video that’s gotten out of sync due to
the complex digital video processing being performed by
your HDMI-compatible TV. With HDMI Lip Sync, the
audio delay required to synchronize the audio and video
is calculated and applied automatically by the AV
receiver.
Disable: HDMI lip sync disabled.
Enable: HDMI lip sync enabled.

the AV receiver with this setting.
■ Control
This function allows RIHD-compatible components
connected via HDMI to be controlled with the AV
receiver.
Disable: RIHD disabled.
Enable: RIHD enabled.
Notes:
• RIHD, which stands for Remote Interactive over
HDMI, is the name of the system control function
found on Onkyo components. The AV receiver can be
used with CEC (Consumer Electronics Control),
which allows system control over HDMI and is part of
the HDMI standard. CEC provides interoperability
between various components, however, operation with
components other than RIHD-compatible components
and recommended components cannot be guaranteed.
• Select Disable if a connected component is incompatible or you’re not sure about its compatibility.
• If operation is unreliable when set to Enable, select
Disable instead.
Power Control
To link the power functions of RIHD-compatible components connected via HDMI, select Enable.
Disable: Power Control disabled.
Enable: Power Control enabled.
Notes:
• The Power Control setting can be set only when the
above Control setting is set to Enable.
• HDMI power control only works with RIHD-compatible components that support it and may not work
properly with some components due to their settings
or compatibility.
• When set to Enable, the AV receiver consumes more
power.
• When set to Enable, the AV receiver enters Ready
mode when set to Standby, and the STANDBY indicator lights up.
• When set to Enable, regardless of whether the AV
receiver is On or on Standby, both audio and video
received by an HDMI input will be output by the
HDMI OUT for playback on the TV or other component that’s connected to the HDMI OUT.
Disable: “x.v.Color” disabled.
Enable: “x.v.Color” enabled.

Controlling Other Components
You can control your DVD player, CD player, and other
components with the AV receiver’s remote controller.
To control another component, you must first enter that
component’s remote control code to a REMOTE MODE
button.

Troubleshooting
If you have any trouble using the AV receiver, look for a
solution in this section. If you can’t resolve the issue
yourself, contact your Onkyo dealer.
If you can’t resolve the issue yourself, try resetting
the AV receiver before contacting your Onkyo dealer.

turn it on and, while holding down the [VCR/DVR]
button, press the [ON/STANDBY] button. “Clear”
will appear on the display and the AV receiver will
enter Standby mode.
ON/STANDBY
VCR/DVR
Note that resetting the AV receiver will delete your
radio presets and custom settings.
Power
Can’t turn on the AV receiver
• Make sure that the power cord is plugged into the wall
outlet properly.
• Unplug the power cord from the wall outlet, wait 5
seconds or more, then plug it back in again.
The AV receiver turns off as soon as it’s turned on
• The amp protection circuit has been activated.
Remove the power cord from the wall outlet immediately. Disconnect all speaker cables and input sources,
and leave the AV receiver with its power cord disconnected for 1 hour. After that, reconnect the power cord
and set the volume to maximum. If the AV receiver
stays on, set the volume to minimum, disconnect the
power cord, and reconnect your speakers and input
sources. If the AV receiver turns off when you set the
volume to maximum, disconnect the power cord, and
contact your Onkyo dealer.
Audio
There’s no sound or it’s very quiet
• To listen to an audio source that’s connected to an
HDMI input, make sure that input is assigned to an
input selector (page 43).
• To listen to an audio source that’s connected to an
OPTICAL or COAXIAL input, make sure that input is
assigned to an input selector (page 44).
• Make sure that all audio connecting plugs are pushed
in all the way (page 20).
• Make sure that the polarity of the speaker cables is
correct, and that the bare wire is in contact with the
metal part of each speaker terminal (page 16).
• Make sure that the speaker cables are not shorting.
• Check the volume (page 47). The AV receiver is
designed for home theater enjoyment and has a wide
volume range for precise adjustment.
96
• If the MUTING indicator is flashing on the display,
press the remote controller’s [MUTING] button to
unmute the AV receiver (page 48).
• While a pair of headphones is connected to the
PHONES jack, no sound is output by the main room
speakers (page 49).
• Check the digital audio output settings on the source
component. On some game consoles, such as those
that can play DVDs, the default setting is off.
• With some DVD-Video discs, you need to select an
audio format from a menu or with the AUDIO button
on your DVD player’s remote controller.
• If your turntable doesn’t have a phono preamp built-in,
you must connect one between it and the AV receiver.
• If your turntable uses an MC cartridge, you must connect an MC head amp, or an MC transformer and a
phono preamp.
• Check the speaker settings (pages 72–76).
• If the digital signal format is set to PCM or DTS, set it
to Auto (page 50).
• If there’s no sound from a DVD player connected to an
HDMI IN, check the DVD player’s output settings,
and be sure to select a compatible audio format.
Only the front speakers produce sound
• When the Stereo or Mono listening mode is selected,
only the front speakers and subwoofer produce sound.
• Check the Speaker Configuration (page 72).
Only the center speaker produces sound
• If you use the Dolby Pro Logic IIx Movie or Dolby
Pro Logic IIx Music listening mode with a mono
source, such as an AM radio station or mono TV program, the sound will be concentrated in the center
speaker.
• Check the Speaker Configuration (page 72).
The center speaker produces no sound
• When the Stereo or Mono listening mode is selected,
the center speaker produces no sound (page 64).
• Check the Speaker Configuration (page 72).
The surround speakers produce no sound
• When the Stereo or Mono listening mode is selected,
the surround speakers produce no sound.
• Depending on the source and the current listening
mode, not much sound may be produced by the surround speakers. Try another listening mode (page 57).
• Check the Speaker Configuration (page 72).
The surround back speakers produce no sound
• The surround back speakers are not used with all listening modes. Try another listening mode (page 57).
• Not much sound may be produced by the surround
back speakers with some sources.
• Check the Speaker Configuration (page 72).
• While Powered Zone 2 is being used, playback in the
main room is reduced to 5.1-channels and the surround back speakers produce no sound (page 83).
TX-SR606_En.book Page 97 Wednesday, March 5, 2008 10:30 AM
Troubleshooting—Continued
Can’t get 6.1- or 7.1-channel playback
• While Powered Zone 2 is being used, playback in the
main room is reduced to 5.1-channels and the surround back speakers produce no sound (page 83).
About DTS signals
• When playing DTS program material, using the pause,
fast forward, or fast reverse function on your player
may produce a short audible noise. This is not a malfunction.
• When DTS program material ends and the DTS bitstream stops, the AV receiver remains in DTS listening mode and the DTS indicator remains on. This is to
prevent noise when you use the pause, fast forward, or
fast reverse function on your player. If you switch your
player from DTS to PCM, as the AV receiver does not
switch formats immediately, you may not hear anything, in which case you should stop your player for
about 3 seconds, and then resume playback.
• With some CD players, you won’t be able to playback
DTS material properly even though your player is connected to a digital input on the AV receiver. This is
usually because the DTS bitstream has been processed
(e.g., output level, sampling rate, or frequency
response changed) and the AV receiver doesn’t recognize it as a genuine DTS signal. In such cases, you
may hear noise.
Can’t select the Pure Audio listening mode
• The Pure Audio listening mode cannot be selected
while Zone 2 is on.
• The Pure Audio listening mode is not available on the
North American model.
The beginning of audio received by an HDMI IN
can’t be heard
• Since it takes longer to identify the format of an
HDMI signal than it does for other digital audio signals, sound may not be output immediately.
The subwoofer produces no sound
• If the source material contains no audio in the LFE
channel, the subwoofer produces no sound.
• Check the Speaker Configuration (page 72).
The Zone 2 speakers produce no sound
• The Zone 2 speakers only output sources that are connected to an analog input. Check to see if the source
component is connected to an analog input.
• Powered Zone 2 cannot be used if Speaker Type is set
to Bi-Amp (page 42).
There’s no sound with a certain signal format
• Check the digital audio output setting on the source
component. On some game consoles, such as those
that can play DVDs, the default setting is off.
• With some DVD-Video discs, you need to select an
audio format from a menu or with the AUDIO button
on your DVD player’s remote controller.
The volume cannot be set to 79 (99)
• Check to see if a maximum volume has been set
(page 78).
• After the Automatic Speaker Setup function has been
run, or the volume level of each individual speaker has
been adjusted (pages 38 and 75), the maximum volume may be reduced.
• When the levels of each speaker have been adjusted
(page 75), the maximum possible volume may be
reduced.
• When the Equalizer setting (page 76) is set to Audyssey, the maximum possible volume is reduced by
6 dB.
Noise can be heard
• Using cable ties to bundle audio cables with power
cords, speaker cables, and so on can degrade audio
performance, so don’t use them.
• An audio cable may be picking up interference. Try
repositioning your cables.
The Late Night function doesn’t work
• Make sure that the source is Dolby Digital or
Dolby TrueHD (page 69).
The analog multichannel input doesn’t work
• Check the multichannel input connections (page 25).
• Make sure that the multichannel input is selected
(page 47).
• Check the audio output settings on your DVD player.
Video
There’s no picture
• Make sure that all video connecting plugs are pushed
in all the way (page 20).
• Make sure that each video component is properly connected.
• On your TV, make sure that the video input to which
the AV receiver is connected is selected.
• While the Pure Audio listening mode is selected, the
video circuitry is turned off and only the HDMI OUT
outputs video signals.
• If the video source is connected to an HDMI input,
you must assign that input to an input selector
(page 43), and your TV must be connected to the
HDMI OUT (page 31).
• If the video source is connected to a component video
input, you must assign that input to an input selector
(page 44), and your TV must be connected to either
the HDMI OUT or COMPONENT VIDEO OUT
(page 31, 23).
• If the video source is connected to an S-Video or composite video input, your TV must be connected to the
HDMI OUT or the corresponding S-Video or composite video output (page 31, 23).

Troubleshooting—Continued
There’s no picture from a source connected to
an HDMI IN
• Reliable operation with an HDMI-to-DVI adapter is
not guaranteed. In addition, video signals from a PC
are not supported (page 31).
• If the message “Resolution Error” appears on the AV
receiver’s display, this indicates that your TV does not
support the current video resolution and you need to
select another resolution on your DVD player.
Tuner
Reception is noisy, stereo FM reception suffers
from hiss, or the FM STEREO indicator doesn’t
light up
• Relocate your antenna.
• Move the AV receiver away from your TV or computer.
• When listening to an AM station, operating the remote
controller may cause noise.
• Passing cars and airplanes can cause interference.
• Concrete walls weaken radio signals.
• If nothing improves the reception, install an outdoor
antenna.
Remote Controller
The remote controller doesn’t work
• Make sure that the batteries are installed with the correct polarity (page 13).
• Make sure that the remote controller is not too far
away from the AV receiver and there’s no obstruction
between the remote controller and the AV receiver’s
remote control sensor (page 13).
• Make sure you’ve selected the correct remote controller mode.
• Make sure you’ve entered the correct remote control
code (page 87).
Can’t control other components
• Make sure you’ve selected the correct remote controller mode.
• If you’ve connected an
-capable Onkyo MD
recorder, CD recorder, or RI Dock to the TAPE
IN/OUT jacks, or an RI Dock to the GAME/TV IN
jacks, for the remote controller to work properly, you
must set the Input Display to MD, CDR, or DOCK,
respectively (see page 45).
• The entered remote control code may not be correct. If
more than one code is listed, try each one.
• With some AV components, certain buttons may not
work as expected, and some may not work at all.
• To control an Onkyo component that’s connected via
, point the remote controller at the AV receiver. Be
sure to enter the appropriate remote control code first
(page 88).

• To control an Onkyo component that’s not connected
via
, or another manufacturer’s component, point
the remote controller at that component. Be sure to
enter the appropriate remote control code first
(page 87).
Recording
Can’t record
• On your recorder, make sure the correct input is
selected.
• To prevent signal loops and damage to the AV
receiver, input signals are not fed through to outputs
with the same name (e.g., TAPE IN to TAPE OUT or
VCR/DVR IN to VCR/DVR OUT).
• When the Pure Audio listening mode is selected, video
recording is not possible because no video signals are
output. Select another listening mode.
Others
The sound changes when I connect my headphones
• When a pair of headphones is connected, the listening
mode is set to Stereo, unless it’s already set to Stereo,
Mono, Direct, or Pure Audio, in which case it stays the
same.
How do I change the language of a multiplex
source
• On the “Audio Adjust” menu, change the “Input Ch”
setting to Main or Sub (page 67).
The
functions don’t work
• To use
, you must make an
connection and an
analog audio connection (RCA) between the component and AV receiver, even if they are connected digitally (page 36).
• While Zone 2 is selected, the
functions don’t
work.
The AV receiver’s display doesn’t work
• The display is turned off when the Pure Audio listening mode is selected. Select another listening mode.

Troubleshooting—Continued
The following settings can be made for the
S-Video and composite video inputs
You must use the buttons on the unit to make these settings.
1. While holding down the input selector button for the
input source that you want to set, press the [SETUP]
button.
2. Use the Left and Right [ ]/[ ] buttons to change
the setting.
3. Press the [SETUP] button when you’ve finished.

This setting can be made for the DVD, VCR/DVR,
CBL/SAT, GAME/TV, or AUX input.
If you have a games console connected to the
S-Video or composite video input, and the picture
isn’t very clear, you can attenuate the gain.
Video ATT:0: (default).
Video ATT:2: Gain is reduced by 2 dB.
The AV receiver contains a microcomputer for signal processing and control functions. In very rare situations,
severe interference, noise from an external source, or
static electricity may cause it to lockup. In the unlikely event
that this happens, unplug the power cord from the wall outlet, wait at least 5 seconds, and then plug it back in again.
Onkyo is not responsible for damages (such as CD
rental fees) due to unsuccessful recordings caused by
this unit’s malfunction. Before you record important
data, make sure that the material will be recorded correctly.
Before disconnecting the power cord from the wall outlet, set the AV receiver to Standby.

Important Note Regarding Video Playback
The AV receiver can upconvert component video, S-Video, and composite video sources for display on a
TV connected to the HDMI OUT. However, if the picture quality of the source is poor, upconversion may
make the picture worse or disappear altogether.
In this case, try setting the HDMI Output Resolution setting (page 80) to 480p or 720p. If that doesn’t
improve the picture quality, try the following:
1. If the video source is connected to a component video input,
connect your TV to the COMPONENT VIDEO OUT.
If the video source is connected to an S-Video input,
connect your TV to an S-Video output.
If the video source is connected to a composite video input,
connect your TV to a composite video output.
2. On the main menu, select “1. Input Assign,”
and then select “1. HDMI Input.”
Select the relevant input selector, and assign it to “-----” (page 43).
3. On the main menu, select “1. Input Assign,”
and then select “2. Component Video Input” (page 44):
If the video source is connected to COMPONENT VIDEO IN 1,
select the relevant input selector, and assign it to “IN1.”
If the video source is connected to COMPONENT VIDEO IN 2,
select the relevant input selector, and assign it to “IN2.”
If the video source is connected to an S-Video input or composite video input,
select the relevant input selector, and assign it to “-----”.
