    I saw in the Crutchfield catalog that Onkyo now has a TX SR601 to replace the 600 I bought last year...is this right, and is the only difference (that I was able to make out) that it puts out 85 watts x 6 instead of 80 x 6? Is that it?

    There are a few features added to the sr601. Powered zone 2, DTS 24/96, 6x192 DACs, and more power. I also think they upgraded the power supply. Nothing to make me wish I'd bought a sr601 instead of a sr600.

    Thank You, Hiend...

    So really nothing to lose sleep over as far as feeling like we SR600 owners "missed out on something" here with the intro of the 601?

    I think the new power supply of the 601 corrected any of the much discussed issues here in regards to low wattage performance with all channel driven.

    Hmmmm....yeah I do feel this receiver is way underpowered, and thats WITH my calibrations and Intellivolume jacked up..

    I cant stand how in the world of electronics and computers, you spend tons of cash on something just to have a replacement model come out from right behind you...
