Test Bench: Onkyo TX-SR804 A/V Receiver


At the 6-ohm setting, however, it drove 4-ohm loads to high power in 1- and 2-channel operation, with no discernible ill effects. On our difficult (and admittedly not real-world) 5-channels driven test, the TX-SR804's current-limiting protection...


Product Specifications

With such complete home entertainment functionality, it would seem wrong to define the TX-SR804 by only two words - Power and Simplicity. Take power, at a rock-solid 200 watts per channel. It's only a rating, but it's something completely different when you realize that the TX-SR804 is built on Onkyo's Wide Range Amplifier Technology. WRAT provides a sound amplification framework that combines a high instantaneous current capability with a distortion-preventing circuit design to channel power for the demanding sound requirements of today's high-definition movie sources. Simplicity might not be a word that you associate with an A/V receiver of this class, but with HDMI, that perception quickly changes. HDMI is not only the most technologically advanced transport available for delivering movies, music and gaming; it's also the most straightforward. Virtually any component can be connected to the TX-SR804, upconverted, and outputted via a single HDMI cable. Just what you need to complement your HD-ready display.
