Onkyo has proudly introduced the world’s first home theater receiver, TX-NR1009 to feature DTS Neo:X multidimensional audio technology, delivering a highly realistic sound experience for consumers.
This technology enables customers to employ up to nine loudspeakers, creating a lifelike 3-D soundscape.
As a successor to the TX-NR1008, this THX Select2 Plus-certified home theater receiver also packs several audio and video upgrades such as Marvell Qdeo and IDT’s HQV Vida video upscaling and processing circuits, and Audyssey’s MultEQ XT audio room correction.

The IDT HQV Vida VHD1900 chip provides upscaling to 1080p, while the added built-in Marvell QDEO processing chip provides futher upscaling up to 4K (3840×2160) resolution – provided you have a 4K display.
