Onkyo 7.2 Channel Black AV Home Theater Receiver - TXNR809

With its advanced processing and fabulous array of connections, the TX-NR809 is ready to lift the roof off. Eight HDMI® inputs handle all your high-def content, from master-quality audio to upscaled 4K video. Home network capability lets you bring streaming internet radio and PC audio to your living room. And the drop-down front panel conceals a plethora of one-touch audio controls and A/V inputs. Video—whether standard or high definition—gets the royal treatment from a high-quality HQV® Vida™ processor and independent ISF calibration for each source. Advanced audio options include bi-amping, 7.2 multichannel pre-outs, and distributed multi-zone audio. As you’d expect from a receiver near the top of Onkyo’s mid-range line-up, construction is first-rate. A massive transformer, symmetrical L/R channels, separate power and pre-amp blocks, and a highly rigid chassis provide the bedrock for a superlative audio performance. Built with the serious home theater fan in mind, the TX-NR809 offers a class-leading mix of power, features, and performance.

        Comments about Onkyo 7.2 Channel Black AV Home Theater Receiver:

        Excellent receiver for the money. I've been a Yamaha fan all my life, this is my first Onkyo. What a fantastic, well built product! Make sure you have lots of room available for this beast, it's big. It runs significantly cooler than my Yamaha did, but it's 1 1/2 times the size.

        I am very impressed with this thing except for one flaw. The "Net" interface (GUI) is clunky. Especially the XM function. Pandora, DNLA works great, but the entire interface could use some tweaking on a firmware update. This is the only reason I give it 4 out of 5 stars.

        HDMI processing, sound quality, looks, value, everything else is 5 stars.

            Comments about Onkyo 7.2 Channel Black AV Home Theater Receiver:

            I have only had the unit up and running a few days, but I miss it dearly! It was easy to setup and the sound quality was night and day compared to my old Pioneer VSX-1014 (I love my Pioneer too, but no HDMI inputs). 2/11 - I had just finished updating the firmware via USB and I was on my way over to the receiver when I heard sizzling, and a loud pop from the receiver! The whole inside of the receiver started to glow bright orange and then a big puff of electrical smoke showed it self. The unit was so HOT that I could not touch the top or even the front bezel (*FYI - I have been using it since Thursday 2/9 with out a heat issue, seemed fairly cool to the touch). I immediately unlugged the power and HDMI cables from the back to try and save my other equipment. So far the TV and PS3 seem to be working OK and didn't take a hit from the receiver that I can tell. I am working with ABT on getting this resolved. They have offered to replace it or refund my money. ABT rocks! I would love to get another one but I am weary on burning the house down! I don't know if durning the Firmware update the receiver shuts down all protective circuits including the 2 fans or what!?! I am in contact with Onkyo for an explanation.

            Service and delivery comments:

            Delivery was very fast! Ordered unit late Tuesday and it was in Omaha by Thursday ready for delivery. ABT does a great job and boxing up the item! I laughed when I saw the size of box waiting for me! That packaging could probably withstand a drop from a 20 story building! ;)

            Comments about Onkyo 7.2 Channel Black AV Home Theater Receiver:

            I had a NR-TX807 which was just a couple of years old and then I went out and upgraded to 3D television and did not realize the need to upgrade the receiver as well. If I didn't have a friend who had told me to let him know when I was ready to sell my 807 receiver I may not have been so quick to make the jump. However the salesman had told me that there were some nice improvements on the 809 over the 807 and he was definitely right. Onkyo makes a great receiver and when I needed to set it up, both ABT and Onkyo were right there to help me every step of the way. I have been an ABT customer for over 35 years and would never shop anywhere else. Absolutely the best to do business with and the customer service is second to none.
