These 5.1 channel audio-video receivers bring HDMI 1.4a capability to a new, lower price point, enabling 3D video and higher sound quality through Audio Return Channel’s ability to receive high-resolution audio from Blu-ray disc. The products share identical performance specifications and most features, with the step-up RD-606i adding networking capability and Internet Radio access.
Featuring three HDMI 1.4a inputs and a single output, with repeater and Audio Return Channel, both receivers deliver 100 watts/channel to each of five channels.

Five additional synthesized surround modes are available for playback of non-DTS and Dolby sources, and audio quality is maximized through 192 KHz/24 bit DACs for all five channels.
