The Onkyo TX-SR576 is a fine receiver and solid value at $479. It was easy to setup, easy to use and consistently delivered a strong audio performance. In the context of its direct competition, the Onkyo TX-SR576 is a very compelling product, offering a competitive feature set and solid performance. However, the strongest competitor for this receiver doesn't come from another brand, but from within Onkyo's own product line. For an extra $120, the TX-SR606 gives the user some very useful video processing, another HDMI input (for a total of four), full support for the Dolby and DTS HD audio codecs and an on screen display. If you have three or fewer sources and you can run them all on HDMI then I would say the TX-SR576 offers the better value, but if your system is more complex, the extra $120 for the for the TX-SR606 will be money well spent.
