Onkyo 140w/channel - Yamaha 145w/channel - Sony 100w/channel.
The 606 does not get 140w/channel. more like 90.
and watts to decibels is not linear (and very misunderstood) and unnecessary in most cases (do you plan to keep the neighborhood up?)

The 606 has some arguable minor advantages over the 663, but the 606 gets really HOT. Seriously, I mean burn your hand hot. The deal breaker for me.

I ordered the 663. I only need 2 HDMI's though the receiver anyway.
