    So what are all the negatives to the Onkyo 606? I know they are supposed to run hot and some people have complained about a humming issue??

    I plan on getting one from CC when they get closer to $325 and would like to know of any potential problems. The heat issue isn't a big deal for me as it will be on the top shelf of a component rack with open face/sides/half back. The humming does worry me a little but seems more like a defect than a common issue.

    i run the 606 in my theater room and it does a great job. I wish i had a little better EQ for music listening but other then that its great for the money. Just keep the top from being covered and it wont run that hot.

    I have/had a 705 - everyone said it runs hot so I got a fan. But it was completely fine. I just bought a Pioneer SC-05 to replace it for other reasons not relating to performace, but I'd go with Onkyo for sure if you're looking to spend the least on a good receiver.
