Onkyo TX-NR609 Review

Well, one of those terms that have been around for a while but now has begun to gain understanding of some is “red.” Onkyo has long been known to shoehorn everything that could be receiving their prizes to their fans. No, they try to bring the network to the masses with entry-level receiver from $ 399.

The two new “receiver is the TX-NR609 NR ($ 494) and TX-NR509 ($ 399), we will. Being focused more on a full-featured NR-609.

The Onkyo TX-NR609 7.2-channel with 5-way with messages for five and the type of spring on the rear surround channels. There are six HDMI (one in front), 2 component video, PC (RGB are converted to HDMI by the receiver) and four composite video inputs and one output for each. HDMI port is version 1.4 and supports 3D video, HDMI Through (on hold), and a new audio channel. Sport TX-NR609 each of the two optical inputs and coaxial digital audio inputs and six analog audio. Zone 2 audio support pre-departure (as well as dual subwoofer outputs) or activated through the rear-channel surround sound, but no other input or output analog computer to integrate legacy or external amplification. Things, however, is the rear Ethernet port and front USB port. The USB port provides a direct digital connection for iPod or iPhone, along with support for audio playback from USB mass storage devices. In the case of the TX-NR609 USB port and even supports the album from the iPod / iPhone.

TX-NR609 supports streaming via wired connection and is compatible with Windows 7 and DLNA. When connected to a network, can be much more simple firmware upgrade on your receiver (something that manufacturers are moving more and more towards) and the freedom to use the Onkyo remote application for the iPod / iPhone to control receptor.
Technically, Onkyo TX-NR609 features Marvell Qdeo upconverting (as opposed to the new BDP-93 BD player) and scaling up to 4K resolution – something that does not show the current home can do. It has a jitter cleaning PLL circuit to maintain signal clarity, and lossless Dolby TrueHD DTS-HD Master Audio, superimposed on the screen for easy configuration settings, and Dolby Prologic IIz (high-front) and Audyssey DSX ( Front height / width) support. Audyssey 2EQ is on board for the correction of space as the Dynamic EQ and Dynamic Volume.

The Onkyo TX-NR509 NR609 has more features that unless he has no advanced upconversion, two HDMI inputs, Audyssey DSX / Dolby Prologic IIZ, and two channels of amplification (which excludes food Zone 2). Onkyo has also CUP-1 wireless USB adapter is compatible with all Onkyo receivers compatible with the USB network and was introduced in 2011. IEEE 802.11b/g/n connectivity provides access to music on a home network.


Viewing the network as low as $ 399 is pretty impressive. As for the function sets NR609 Onkyo TX-$ 494 more. Although trained audioholic easily see the shortcuts, which also quickly realize that are best for cutting. We hope you can get one of the more advanced versions of Audyssey room correction there, but that’s it. We love the upconversion Mavell Qdeo, powered Zone 2, six HDMI inputs, front-mounted USB a word with the iPod / iPhone, and superimposed on the screen. 4K PC input and upconversion to talk to the technician room correction, and Audyssey Dynamic EQ / volume and superimposed OSD talk to the neophytes, and 3D, 7.2 channels, and the price is going to be talking to them that love words and the transaction. If you plan to buy a receiver, either for yourself or your family, and know that once installed will not be touched until it is overwritten, this is a fantastic choice.
