Onkyo Double Ought Receivers Preview

 

Starting at $1599, the Onkyo TX-NR5007, TX-NR3007, and TX-NR1007 will have 9 channels of amplification with two independent subwoofer outputs all with THX Ultra2 Plus and new Audyssey DSX processing.

All three of these receivers, the TX-NR5007, TX-NR3007, and TX-NR1007 will be in stores by the end of September. We expect they won't be on the shelves for very long. With the feature sets and at these prices, they look to be a hard act to follow. Once...

Onkyo TX-NR5007 AV Receiver Preview

 

The TX-NR5007 is the flagship model in Onkyo's current receiver line, also known as the "Double-0" series. The features 9.2 channel output allows for customizability in home theater setups. While a 9.2 speaker setup is possible, it's more likely than...

Onkyo TX-NR5007 review

 

We wonder if there's anything Onkyo's TX-NR5007 AV receive can't do

Sophisticated and polished sound ; Excellent scaling to 1080p ; Features galore

No Wi-Fi ; Lacks proprietary anti-jitter

Editor's Choice!

Onkyo TX-NR5007 review

 

The Onkyo TX-NR5007 is certainly expensive, but it competes with other companies' products that cost much more. Incredibly powerful, it retains its audio fidelity no matter how hard you drive it. It's ideally suited to people with dedicated home-cinema...

Excellent sound quality ; Attractive design ; Great build quality ; Plenty of connectivity options ; Flexible

Expensive ; Very large and heavy

Conclusion The Onkyo TX-NR5007 is expensive and too powerful for most households' requirements, but we love it with all our hearts. If you can afford it, we're confident you'll feel as well disposed towards it as we do

Onkyo TX-NR5007 AV Receiver

 

This has to be one of the easiest reviews we've written of late because to describe all the features all we need do is say: it has everything. And then some. Further it just took out the Sound+Image 2010 Awards for AV Receiver of the Year Over 4000. So...

Want a home theatre receiver with extensive support for other zones? The Only TX-NR5007 will do that nicely, thank you very much. You have a projector, so you want a receiver that supports two HDMI displays (one for the projector, and one for an LCD TV...

Excellent reference-level surround w/low distortion.

 

Excellent reference-level surround w/low distortion combined with superior video processing. All the HDMI inputs you will need for the foreseeable future - unless you plan on going to (notice I did not say 'upgrade to') 3D Updated on Jul 12, 2010

Every input/output needed for 9.2 pre-3D connectivity! Good on-screen setup. Clean sound in all processed modes, even when driving 4-ohm front speakers. Runs cool-warm with adequate ventillation

Universal remote is not as handy as Harmony One, but still not bad for an included item! HD radio not included - need to buy an additional component

Very Nice

 

I have owned this one since Oct 2009. I had an Onkyo 706B prior to this and have used Yamaha's for last 10's. (The newer Yamaha's just did not have the Features/connections I needed when I bought this. I am a huge Yamaha fan!). I love this reciever!...

Onkyo HDMI boards

 

I bought a different brand with less known issues. And that being said, there are a lot of good Onkyo units out that will not need HDMI board replacement service. DOA's are few.

A lot of pro's but, read below

Some Onkyo's, what percentage, who knows, Onkyo units 1007, 3007, 5007's have faulty HDMI boards & have to be sent in to Onkyo to get them replaced, U pay shipping in. And the DOA's, paperweights, more than there should be that's just poor Quality...
