I have the bd35 and onkyo 606 which says or reads Dolby hd or dts hd with the bd35 set to bit stream.(playing blu-ray movies) The sound is real nice.

also the receiver says audyssey. Use the mic to set up the speakers it works well. Then fine tune it I turned up my center channel and back off the rears so I can hear more of the vocals.

I used the Audessey setup as well. I haven't seen the need to fine tune it for my setup. Some DD audio will overpower the center but that is usually a commercial or something on DirecTV.

Just a side note really. As some of you know, I had the Onkyo 806 and now have a Denon 988. Both have audessey mic.

When running audessey on the Onkyo, my surrounds were way more active (not always what I wanted) than with exact same disc on my Denon. Hm. This is not a negative comment. Just odd I guess.

I just received and set up my new 606 yesterday and it seems to work great. The only AVR I can compare it to is an older Denon 1801 that didn't have HDMI that the 606 is replacing. Last night I was watching Ronin, not through the BD 35 (still don't have it yet), and at one point I about jumped out of my chair when a car raced up from behind...so you may be right about the surrounds, at least compared to my older Denon.

if the player is decoding TrueHD into PCM and sending it across HDMI you are sending TrueHD.

From what I could tell by his settings his receiver should say DTSMA or DD True HD with the settings he has now. More than likely he needs a new hdmi cable. Also like Stew stated he could set his BD-35 to PCM so it will do the decoding itself. Then his receiver should say Multi C on the display. Also like someone else stated, when the movie starts hit the audio button on the remote to double check that you have selected DDTrue HD. Also turn off the PCM downconversion in the BD player. That should fix your problem. One other thing you might wanna change is in the receiver on your hdmi input, I have mine set to passthrough. That way it passes the signal straight through the receiver. My tv is a 1080p tv and so is the player. You can play with that setting to see what looks best to you.

hello junkie - how do you like your 806? Any video or audio issues?
I am debating this over the 706 and Denon 1909.
thanks

Man, the 706 at Amazon for only $538 shipped is a great deal.. But the 806 for only $621 shipped is even better.. Since the 1909 and 806 at about the same price, I would be putting the 806 in the mix as well. Seriously thinking about trading up from the 606... But very happy with it so I just need to sit on my wallet......

so of those units you mentioned, which one is best for AUDIO and VIDEO processing?

Man, both the Denon 1909 and SR806 are great receivers. You can't go wrong with either pick.. If it was me for around the same price, I would go with the 806.. But no loosers here.. A slight edge in power with the 806. But both have the Faroudja DCDi chip for video processing, so good to go their on both accords. 1 other advantage for the 806 (to me) is 5 HDMI inputs vs 3....But having a 705 already should give you a bit of a scope. Let you eyes and ears be the judge. But that 806 for only $618 is a killer deal IMO... Being THX Ultra2 Plus certified is a bonus too, but not a biggie..

sounds great Big thanks!
I was leaning towards the 806 given the good reviews. I did hear some issues with video artifacts thru bluray players though. I think they were using the PS3 player that was the issue - mine's a BD35 player so perhaps I'm covered??
Any input on that issue?

Ugh.. what kind of video artifacts?? I use a PS3 as my blu-ray player and am trying to decide what receiver to get. However I am looking more at the Onkyo 606 (and others in that range) to power these: http://www.wwstereo.com/#/ecommerce/...rs/33/144560// I thought if the source signal was already 1080p then the receiver would just pass the video on through to the TV?

OK so the artifact claim is unfounded then?

I have the onkyo 605 and the panasonic 30 bluray player. I use the bitstream on the onkyo receiver. so it will read the trueHD & DTS MA.

Unless those complaining have a defective unit.
