Been waiting for this to come down in price for a while and found that HIFIX are now selling it at £299.99. Cheapest I've found elsewhere is Richersounds at £329.95. I'm sure if you go to Richersounds they will pricematch this but if you don't want the hassle of going to store this is the deal for you.
I'm sure if you are looking at this you know what it does and how good it is but for those that don't:
The Onkyo TX-SR607 7.2 home cinema receiver raises the bar once again in the competitive world of mid-range home theatre. With HDMI 1.3a inputs for up to six components, it's ready to handle all your high-definition video and audio needs. Whether it's a Blu-ray Disc player, a cable or satellite box, or a gaming console, your video signals will be travelling first class. Lower-resolution analogue video signals, meanwhile, can be upscaled to 1080i and fine-tuned by Faroudja DCDi Edge. HDMI version 1.3a also transports the master-quality HD audio formats, DTS-HD Master Audio and Dolby® TrueHD. The very latest Dolby technology, Dolby® Pro Logic® IIz, enhances the spatial sensation of music, movies, and video games by letting you incorporate front height channels. The Onkyo TX-SR607 home cinema receiver packs an array of convenient connectivity options, allowing you to incorporate DAB+ Radio, iPod, MP3 players, and more. Four specialized gaming modes, Audyssey room-correction technologies, and Zone 2 capability add the gloss to what is a phenomenal all-round package.
Incorporating HDMI version 1.3a, along with advanced processing capabilities, the Onkyo TX-SR607 makes for a powerful A/V control centre. Five rear-side HDMI inputs, along with a convenient front-side one, enable connection of up to six components, including Blu-ray Disc players, gaming consoles, and set-top boxes. The Onkyo TX-SR607 can receive and switch high-def media, such as HD broadcasts and Blu-ray Discs, and send a pure digital output to your HDTV. What's more, all multichannel audio from bit-for-bit streams to standard Dolby Digital can be input via HDMI for processing on the Onkyo TX-SR607. HDMI version 1.3a enables CEC (Consumer Electronics Control) and offers greater bandwidth to deal with higher resolutions, 36-bit Deep Colour, and high frame rates
Dolby Pro Logic IIz offers the proven quality of Dolby Pro Logic IIx and adds a new vertical dimension to your home theatre soundstage. As with previous versions of Dolby Pro Logic, this latest version delivers a convincing surround-sound experience from any movie or music source even a stereo one. On the Onkyo TX-SR607, Dolby Pro Logic IIz enables you to incorporate two "front height" speakers into your surround-sound set-up as an alternative to the two surround back speakers. The front height channels carry ambient, non-directional audio that helps immerse you even more deeply into your movies and games. With Dolby Pro Logic IIz, rain seems to burst from clouds right above you, and helicopters fly realistically overhead.
The Onkyo TX-SR607 7.2 home cinema receiver handles Dolby® TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio two lossless decoding formats that enable delivery of a bit-for-bit soundtrack identical to the studio master track. Both Codecs take advantage of the high data capacity of the Blu-ray Disc (BD) format. Another BD-related technology is DTS-HD Express, which provides access to secondary audio features. The Onkyo TX-SR607 also handles two "lossy" audio formats: Dolby® Digital Plus and DTS-HD High Resolution Audio. Dolby Digital Plus is designed to accompany high-definition video delivered via disc media, broadcasts, and online content. DTS-HD High Resolution Audio, meanwhile, offers a greater bit rate, a higher sampling rate, and more channels than the core DTS technology.
The Onkyo TX-SR607's HDMI inputs can receive pristine digital video from HDMI-enabled components for a single-cable output to a display device with an HDMI or DVI connection. Native 1080p video is processed as it is, but lower-resolution signals from component video and composite video are upscaled to 1080i via HDMI. Upscaling takes the video resolution to HD quality, so it better matches the resolution of today's high-definition displays. To further improve performance on high-definition displays, the Onkyo TX-SR607 features a deinterlacing chip with Faroudja DCDi Edge technology, which effectively eliminates video artifacts.
