The Onkyo TX-NR509 Network Receiver is a network-ready home theater centerpiece that is capable of decoding advanced Dolby and DTS audio formats for immersive audio, while it is also capable of integrating seamlessly into your home network.
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 you're setting up this receiver, Audyssey 2EQ works to adapt the soundstage to the unique dimensions of your room. Fine-tuned adjustments to audio and video settings are easy, thanks to the user-friendly overlaid on-screen display (OSD) of the system.
By downloading Onkyo's Remote App, you can even use your iPod or iPhone as a remote control for the system. The receiver's four HDMI 1.4a inputs handle stunning HD audio from Dolby and DTS, as well as dynamic 3D video. Onkyo has also included several DSP audio modes of their own, along with four audio gaming modes tailored to the type of game you're playing.
The unit also has a front-panel USB port that offers a digital link for your iPod, iPhone and USB storage devices, and Zone 2 line-outs allow you to send a stereo audio signal to a second room equipped with an amp and speakers. The TX-NR509 offers an array of features at an affordable value for home theater enthusiasts.
