Onkyo TX-NR809 Wireless Network 7.2 A/V Receiver

 

The Onkyo TX-NR809 is a fantastic value in its class. It offers excellent performance and a bevy of features that will make any home theater enthusiast happy. An MSRP of $1,099 may sound high, but when you consider that it can take the place of at...

Onkyo TX-NR809 7.2 Channel THX Network Receiver First Look

 

My God! It's full of buttons!

When we get information about a new receiver, we're often hesitant. We know the manufacturer is going to try to impress us and consumers. Many times they do but sometimes they don't. The Onkyo TX-NR809 surely is an impressive receiver for the price....

Onkyo TX-NR809 Receiver Review

 

So many ways to customize this receiver to our exact needs!, So many ports!, Outstanding audio and video hardware onboard, So many digital music options, online and locally, Broad complement of Audyssey and Dolby enhancements, including configurable...

No AirPlay, Twitchy iPod/iPhone connectivity, Deep menus and sub-menus can sometimes be non-intuitive

Calling these my "final" musings on the subject would be somewhat disingenuous, as I plan to bite the bullet and buy my very own TX-NR809 receiver and make it a permanent, central part of my home theater rig. Based on what I've seen/heard it do, and...

No regrets - Still a good purchase 2 years later

 

The Onkyo remote app (which can control this receiver) has gotten much better with the second version. It is easier to navigate the streaming music options as well as controlling zone2 and zone 3 sources. I really do feel this is still a good purchase...

The audio quality of this amplifier is quite outstanding. The receiver is pretty heavy too, weighing in at a about 40 pounds. The front high/wide speakers are not necessary but worth setting up if you have the room and extra speakers to give it a try....

The remote control can be confusing to use at times since a single button may serve multiple functions depending on what you are currently doing with the receiver. It also is not fully back lit, so trying to use it in a dark room while watching a movie...
