Performance

 

Onkyo TX-NR1000

World's first hardware- and software-upgradable A/V receiver; full 7.1-channel A/B speaker switching; unprecedented connectivity options; THX Ultra 2 certified; high-end build quality.

The multilayered menus may confound even the most experienced home-theater mavens; upgrades cost even more money; current HDMI card can't handle multichannel audio; expensive.

Onkyo's new flagship receiver can be all you want it to be, now and in the future.

Onkyo TX-NR906 7.1-Channel Home Network A/V Receiver

 

Onkyo has broken new ground by introducing two receivers to be the first in the world with isf video calibration. The TX-NR906 is the flagship of the Onkyo receiver line and the step up from the equally ISF-capable TX-SR876. Several features set the...

Onkyo has hit the ball out of the park. The TX-NR906 has carved a nice place for itself in the market. Other products offer the level of video performance (minus the isf features) the 906 does but at significantly higher price points. The sonic...

Onkyo TX-SR806 THX Ultra2 Plus 7.1 A/V Receiver

 

On the whole the 806 is a mixed bag when looked at as simply the next offering in a line of AVRs with a rich heritage.  There is no question that there is some value in the new video processor, value which unfortunately is undermined by its less-than...

Onkyo TX-NR906 Receiver Reviewed

 

The TX-NR906 is Onkyo's top of the line model and they spared no features or functions. It features seven 145-watt amplifiers inside and a state of the art HQV Reon-VK video processing with scaling to 1080p. Musically, our reviewer noticed "the...

The HDMI switching has a slight lag displaying video when switching sources, or even channels for that matter, so people who constantly switch channels might find this problematic. For those of us who are more inclined to find something to watch and...

The Onkyo TX-NR906 is truly a reference-level receiver, and while some will find its $2,299 price high, I assure you that you are getting what you pay for and more with this unit. It sounds fantastic, and that alone would make it worth its retail...

Onkyo TX-NR906 Home Theater Receiver Review

 

Lots of power for up to 7.1 channels, Easy setup with Audyessy system, Network capabilities expand the entertainment beyond home theater

Remote is bland and not very bright, Sometimes slow when switching HDMI sources, Clicking sound when switching sources or formats

Performance and features like this don't come cheap. The TX-NR906 carries an MSRP of $2,299, though that's cheaper than comparable products from companies like Pioneer and Denon. This model rocks for standard home theater use--it's got plenty of power,...

Onkyo TX-SR806 A/V Receiver

 

When I compare the Onkyo TX-SR806 receiver with last year's Onkyo crop, I see incremental but significant improvements. The most notable ones are licensed technologies from THX and Audyssey (more on them soon). But when I compare this product with the...

Loudness Plus tackles that with THX's Multichannel Spectral Balancing and Dynamic Ambience Preservation. These manipulate frequency response and surround levels in a surgical and psychoacoustically savvy manner. This then enables the system to sound...

Onkyo TX-NR1000 A/V Receiver

 

A receiver that doesn't handle the latest video and surround formats is a doorstop. A similarly outmoded high-end receiver is a very expensive doorstop. And that's a problem for anyone who bought one during the 20th century. Most DVDs have Dolby...

Even so, Onkyo has come up with a provocative response to the upgradeability crisis. Their TX-NR1000 is arguably the best compromise between disposable black-box surround gear and malleable but oft-annoying, marginal-sounding HTPCs. Now we want our...

Onkyo TX-NR905 AV Receiver

 

Introduction Founded in 1946, Onkyo has produced many memorable AV components over the last half-century, including several behemoth receivers from the 1970s which are still sought out by vintage equipment collectors. Their reputation for building...

Onkyo TX-NR906 review

 

Phenomenal scale and authority to sound ; extensive spec ; impressive build ; superlative video processing

Others at this price offer a little more agility and composure

Not the best in class, but a very solid receiver in many ways, and a great choice for movie action fans
