Onkyo TX-NR609

 

Onkyo has a reputation for delivering tons of features and high-end performance at a budget price, and in many ways the TX-NR609 fits the bill. It's packed with six HDMI inputs (including a front-panel input), built-in networking (plus an optional...

The Onkyo TX-NR609's extensive collection of built-in streaming apps makes it an excellent choice for buyers who don't need AirPlay compatibility. It also has six HDMI inputs, including a convenient front-panel input, and we appreciate Onkyo offering a...

There's no built-in AirPlay support, so the Onkyo TX-NR609 wouldn't be our top choice if you have an iOS device. It also doesn't sound quite as good as the Pioneer and Denon, especially using the automatic speaker calibration

The Onkyo TX-NR609 has six HDMI inputs and lots of built-in streaming music services, but it lacks AirPlay and doesn't sound quite as good to our ears as some competitors.

Onkyo TX-NR609 THX Select2 Plus 7.2 Network Receiver Preview

 

The feature set of the $599 Onkyo TX-NR609 is very cutting edge. If you are planning on buying a receiver, either for yourself or your family this is a fantastic option.

Seeing networking as low as $399 is pretty impressive. Seeing the feature set of the $599 Onkyo TX-NR609 is even more so. While a trained audioholic will easily spot the corners they cut, they'll also just as quickly realize that they were the best...

On the whole, Onkyo receivers and amplifiers are excellent, especially for the price. Take last year's TX-NR808 for example, a superb specimen of sonic sorcery – it's 3D ready, got more bells and whistles than a cat and dog sanctuary, and delivers a...

Hearty, tangible sound control, Spotify, Napster and Internet radio access, compatible with every format under the Sun

Audyssey Dynamic Volume ain’t all that, sister

Every imaginable feature you'd desire from an AV receiver, and a few you didn't know you wanted. Plus, it sounds simply amazing and doesn't cost the Earth

Onkyo TX-NR609 - £500

 

Could Onkyo's TX-NR609 receiver be the best-featured audio tool on the planet? Ed Selley thinks he's found a great way to spend £500

Huge feature set, with an exciting and gutsy sound

Not very subtle; some limitations to streaming services

A remarkable product for £500 and very capable in a number of areas

Onkyo TX-NR609 review

 

The Onkyo TX-NR609 is an exciting, well-connected, 3D-compatible AV receiver that bristles with features, including Internet radio and support for Spotify Premium. It's something of a belter.

Support for Spotify Premium and other music streaming services ; Exciting, multi-channel delivery ; Fine stereo performer ; Generous connectivity options

No Apple AirPlay support ; Can sound ragged when all channels are driven at volume ; Network audio streaming needs some polish

Overall, the Onkyo TX-NR609 is a solid AV receiver. It sounds great when not stressed too hard, and positively creaks under the weight of features. For sheer functionality and value for money, the TX-NR609 takes some beating.

Onkyo TX-NR609 review

 

An AV amplifier can do much more than just drive your speakers. Onkyo's latest model, the TX-NR609, is an excellent amplifier which is also packed with extra features.

It’s great when used as a basic amplifier, but the NR609’s extra features make it practically unbeatable

Onkyo TX-NR609

 

Onkyo makes its annual assault on our awards with yet another feature-packed AV receiver.

Smooth, powerful sound quality ; Astonishing amount of features ; Attractive new external design

Could be a little more refined with music ; No multichannel analogue inputs ; Front sockets not covered

We didn’t think it was possible for Onkyo to improve on the superb TX-SR608 but incredibly it has. Everything we loved about last year’s model can be found on the TX-NR609 but mixed in with a bunch of new features that feel like so much more than mere...
