I had a play with the SR6003 and was well impessed by it sound quality, picture signal reproduction and other features it had to offer. It is a top dollar piece of kit. The 6004 should be of at least the same quality.
Like you i have a 763 and only a PS3 is connected to it via hdmi. I do have the sound from Sky+ and a Pioneer DV 400 connected via opitcal but since i not reach the stage of needing more hdmi ports, i have no intentions of replacing it as yet. However, If i were, (and especially after a demo) i would definity be looking at a SR6003.
Why would the SR6003 offer better "picture signal reproduction" than other receivers ?
The SR6004 has an additional hdmi input and more Audyssey features than the SR6003 but the problem with decoding HD audio and Audyssey at the same time is still there.
I was quite impressed by the 5003 but the 6003 still seems somewhat expensive at 650-700 given that the Denon 2310 has now dropped to £700.
