Onkyo 5.1 Channel Black Home Theater Receiver, Model TXNR509

Affordable Home Theater Centerpiece with Audio Network Capability

New at the entry level, the networking ability of the TX-NR509 takes you one step closer to fully integrated home entertainment. Audio files on your computer and streaming internet radio can both now be played through your main system, with fidelity far beyond what you’re used to on a PC. When it comes to setting up the TX-NR509, Audyssey 2EQ® works to adapt the soundstage to the unique dimensions of your room. On-the-fly adjustments to audio and video settings are simple, thanks to the user-friendly overlaid on-screen display. Additional system control is provided by Onkyo’s Remote App, which lets you use your iPod/iPhone as a remote controller. The receiver’s four advanced HDMI® inputs handle stunning high-definition audio from Dolby and DTS, as well as dynamic new 3D video. Further connectivity highlights include a new front-panel USB port that offers a clean digital link for both iPod/iPhone and USB storage devices, and Zone 2 line-outs that let you send a stereo audio signal to a second room equipped with an amp and speakers. All in all, the TX-NR509 offers a superb feature set for the value conscious home theater fan.

    Comments about Onkyo 5.1 Channel Black Home Theater Receiver:

    I use the Onkyo A/V receiver for viewing cable TV, DVD/Blu-Ray movies, streaming video, and listening to CDs, phonograph records, and cassette tapes. As you might surmise, I'm no audiophile but I do appreciate good sound. I notice markedly better separation and subwoofer performance with this unit over my former, 12-year-old Sony.

      Comments about Onkyo 5.1 Channel Black Home Theater Receiver:

      I'm very pleased with this receiver. It sounds great after you run the Audyssey Auto Speaker Setup. I have it connected to my Bose Acoustimass 10 Series IV 5.1 Speaker System and I love the sound. It has great channel separation. It has a USB port in the front for IPOD and futures software updates. I really like the internet radio capabilities, I listen to Sirius Internet Radio and Vtuner alot. I also like the new looks of the Onkyo Receivers. I would highly recommend 509 to people.

            I am very happy with the Onkyo TXNR509. The sound is just incredible. I thought my speakers were worn out and I needed to replace them but this showed me the problem was with my old receiver. This unit brought my speakers alive. Everything works, it's easy and straightforward to hook up. The documentation is excellent. The controls are logical and easy to use. The internet functions all work well. And did I mention the music quality? The sound is truly superb. I could find no cons and I am very happy with this.
