Onkyo's TX-NR5008 9.2 Channel A/V Receiver is the answer to all your home entertainment needs. Onkyo builds a receiver similar to the way a construction company would build a house. It all starts with a solid foundation. They started with a massive toroidal transformer, 22,000 µF capacitors, gold-plated terminals, and separate transformers for audio and video processing.
On the audio side of things, 9.2 speaker channels let you take advantage of lossless Dolby and DTS codecs, as well as expanded surround formats from Audyssey and Dolby. The extra channels also allow you to enjoy a multi-channel source in your main room and powered stereo in two other zones.
Now speaking of video, HQV Reon-VX offers the ultimate in 1080p upscaling via HDMI, while ISF calibration gets the best out of every video source. Connections abound with (8) HDMI 1.4a inputs, two USB inputs, and an Ethernet port for streaming audio from your PC or Internet radio.
To simplify set-up and adjustments, Onkyo provides a new overlaid on-screen display and Audyssey room correction. It all adds up to one smart and muscular heavyweight contender that will bring together your home entertainment system.
