    An interesting review. Price down and claimed quality up BUT Onkyo's marketing guys are sailing close to the wind with a statement that says

    " With Sky due to launch its High Definition TV service in 2006 the TX-SR603E’s trio of wide bandwidth (50MHz) component video inputs (plus one output) will shortly come into their own."

    It may well be able to access non-encryted HDTV from Sky but as I understand it, unless its got an approved HDMI socket it won't allow you to view alot of Sky's planned HD output.

    more importantly as far as i am concerend is 100MHz Bandwidth is normal for AV recievers so that may be something to do with cost down spec up...................

    Hallo

    As you know Sky's first HD PVR will feature analogue component output as well as HDMI outputs.

    According to Sky you'll be able to watch all of Sky's HD channels at launch, via the analogue component.
    outputs...

    Re component video bandwidth: actually 50Mhz bandwidth is more than adequate for HDTV since a 720p/1080i signal requires a theoretical maximum of around 37Mhz.

    As I understand it the US experience is that, in practice, a bandwidth of just 22-25Mhz often suffices...
