Does anyone know abt Onkyo 706 capabilities?

I am surprised you did not go to Onkyo's website. At a high level,

the 706 has the same video processing as the 806.

Other diff between 706 and 806 (to give you an idea of where 706 stands up to its big brother)

4 HDMI vs. 5 for 806

130 watts/ch versus the 706's 100 watts

THX Select2 processing mode vs. Ultra 2 for the 806

independant crossover for each channel for 806 (the 706 is "limited" to 4 crossover groups)

a detachable cord for 806.

Hope this helps.
