Onkyo 7.2 Channel Black Home Theater Receiver, Model TXNR609

Quality Home Theater Is Now Within Your Reach

Targeting the sweet spot where affordability meets superb functionality, the TX-NR609 looks set to be another Onkyo classic. This THX® Select2 Plus™ Certified A/V receiver handles content from all your favorite disc-based media, as well as networked audio content from the internet, iPod®/iPhone®, and PC. Six HDMI® inputs—including one on the front panel—provide support for 3D video and ultra-high resolution 4K video upscaling via Marvell Qdeo™. HDMI also carries master-quality audio formats from Dolby and DTS, as well as the expanded surround sound of Audyssey DSX™ and Dolby® Pro Logic® IIz. Three-stage inverted Darlington circuitry and Onkyo’s proprietary WRAT ensure a clean and compelling amplifier performance. And when audio signals are output, the 7.2-channel configuration includes twin subwoofer pre-outs for added bass impact. Meanwhile, a user-friendly on-screen display and GUI make it easy to adjust settings and navigate your content. All this and more makes the TX-NR609 an irresistible choice for the value-seeking home theater fan.

All the features; volume leveling, ethernet, PC and USB you wont expect at this price point. I have a mid-lower level Martin Logan surround speaker system and a Pioneer Elite Plasma. I have a Tivo, Panasonic Blu-Ray and Toshiba HD-DVD as sources. Everything was great except an issue with the Tivo connected with HDMI. I would frequently get a flashing green screen.(I suspect it is the fault of the TV or Tivo though) I connected it using component and digital optical. I started getting these weird design type pictures for a second every time I switched to the Tivo or changed to Menu or Now Playing list. And the receiver would make that "click" sound every time I ff or rew or paused, anything that interrupted the audio feed. After Onkyo support had me do a system reset everything has worked fine. Besides the slight annoyances I love this receiver.

i have this product on a 7.1 set up with a zone 2 outside. sound is awsome piture upscale is ok not impressed think my ps3 does a better job. biggest complanet is you can't do 7.1 while the zone two is on. then to make 7.1 you have to go into setup and add it then take it back off when wanting to listen to zone 2 very poor design. price range can't complane to much i guess

      Very functional receiver. Second zone works great. Love that you can operate receiver from IPad. Can play MP3,s from my computer over the wireless connection. Does everything I want it to do and sounds great doing it. Hooked it up to a set of JBL speakers and the sound is terrific.

        Comments about Onkyo 7.2 Channel Black Home Theater Receiver:

        Great receiver! The surround set up is very easy and I had no problems hooking up various peripherals. I like the new interface where you can actually see the receiver's menu on the TV. It also allows you to control basic video output like brightness and contrast, but if you have your TV already calibrated, leave the settings alone. Overall, Onkyo delivers the best bang for your buck.

        Service and delivery comments:

        Delivery was fairly prompt and one corner of the box did look crushed, but the styrofoam took the impact. The receiver seems to work just fine and free shipping was very nice. The only odd thing was that I was called to verify the shipping address several days after I placed the order. Validation is always nice, but I felt it a little unnecessary since I input it online and verified it there. Then, after the weekend, I was called a second time to verify my address! I told the lady someone had already done that and it should have been shipped already. She apologized and said there was nothing to indicate it had been verified but that she will process it for shipping immediately. I was a little annoyed for the delay in shipping, however, better that they call twice to ensure it is delivered properly than not at all.

              Would have gotten 5 stars but didn't have simultaneous digital & analog output. Thus, you can't do digital sound in both zones at the same time. Only analog.
