Onkyo TX-NR1008 9.2 Channel Networked A/V Receiver Preview


Third down the line in the refresh Onkyo has made to its line up of receivers is the new TX-NR1008 networked model, updating the TX-NR1007 with more HDMI, more features and more bling.

Onkyo TX-NR1008 Review


In the world of A/V receivers, there's usually a long wait before new or advanced features trickle down to models for those of us in the sub-'50,000 tax brackets. Six months ago, you would've paid at least ',000 for a receiver with an Ethernet port,...

The rear panel offers a rich collection of A/V inputs and outputs (see spec chart), but it doesn’t provide any digital audio outs. This is a drag if you have a high-end outboard DAC. All analog video input signals can be upconverted to 1080p—using the...

Nice Receiver


I dropped one egg because my previous Onkyo (TX-DS797) receiver just up and died one day, prompting me to look for a new receiver. The TX-DS797 was about 5 years old. One day I turned it on to watch a movie and no sound came out of it. Not cost...

Got this at a really, really good price from Newegg ; Awesome sound quality ; Solid Build, components seem high quality ; All features function as they should, so far so good ; Internet radio is cool ; HDMI Switching works fine ; 3D ready ; DLNA ; 9.2...

My biggest issue - Why no back-light on the remote control? I have to use a flashlight. My previous Onkyo receiver had a back-light (TX-DS797) ; Receiver must be powered on to switch inputs, which is a pain (especially in the dark) unless you use a...

Smooth as Silk...


This unit allows me to neatly and affordably transition* to the next generation of A/V receivers. * Onkyo TX-SR705 to TX-NR1008

Solidly constructed, it reeks of quality! Fast switching between HDMI ports. Two 1.4 HDMI Outs easily facilitates using two video displays in the same room (i.e. flatscreen & overhead projector) Internet and network device connectivity via ethernet...

Dumbed down features such as THX Select2 Plus and Audyssey MultEQ as opposed to THX Ultra2 Plus Certification and Audyssey MultEQ XT32 capability found on some older, lower series models. However, given my age (old as dirt) lack of those features or...

Music lover


It would seem that if a HDMI cable is connected that the unit will only accept audio from the HDMI. I may be wrong but I have not been able to find a way around that yet. So instead I simple supplied the audio to the HDMI and it was fine nut it took me...

Great quality sound. Very versatile in it connectivity. Good looking design. Feels right. Smooth action on all controls. Internet for control and for internet radio-love that part. Connected Flat panel TV, Cable box, PC and Xbox through the system....

My wife's only comment was ; I'll never see you again will I?" Next I need a small refrigerator.........tee...hee
