Onkyo TX-SR805 Home-Theater Receiver

 

The first home-theater receiver to decode DTS Master Audio and Dolby TrueHD from Blu-ray movies produces phenomenal sound.

Decodes DTS Master Audio and Dolby TrueHD ; Very powerful

Extremely complex, with poor on-screen help ; No HD Radio tuner or network capability

Altogether, the audio was the best I've heard outside a theater

Onkyo TX-SR805 Review - PCWorld

 

Audiophiles want their best piece of gear to handle decoding so they can enjoy optimum audio quality from their system. Presented with a high-end DVD player and an inexpensive receiver, an audiophile would set up the system so that the DVD player,...

Decodes DTS Master Audio and Dolby TrueHD

Extremely complex, with poor on-screen help

Brawny, great-sounding home theater receiver has the (for now) unique ability to decode Dolby TrueHD and DTS Master Audio tracks.

Onkyo TX-SR805

Three HDMI 1.3 inputs; converts analog video sources to HDMI; onboard Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio decoding; THX Neural surround processing; XM- and Sirius-ready; automatic speaker calibration; switches as many as six high-definition video...

Downconverts 1080i component video signals to 720p when outputting over HDMI; HDMI video quality converted from analog sources may not satisfy videophiles; current crop of high-def disc players lack bit-stream output, which is needed to utilize the...

The Onkyo TX-SR805 is an all-around excellent AV receiver with plenty of audiophile appeal, but its less-than-ideal video performance may give HDTV aficionados a reason to hold out for higher-end alternatives.

Onkyo TX-SR805 AV Receiver Review

 

The Onkyo TX-SR805 represents the current pinnacle of value at its price point. It sounds good, decodes all the latest HD audio codecs, a large power supply, lots of features, and more.

Features and flexibility exceeding price competitors ; HDMI 1.3a compliant ; Dolby TrueHD and DTS Master Audio decoding ; Audyssey MultEQ XT improves focus and coherence ; THX Ultra2 Certified ; Larger power supply than competitive products

Runs hot ; LFE does not support identical crossover frequencies as main channels ; Single subwoofer out connection ; Occasionally drops HDMI signal when exiting setup ; Automatic speaker setup missed a few settings

Onkyo TX-SR805 Multi-channel Home Theater Receiver Reviewed

 

Our reviewer was impressed with the TX-SR805, calling it "one of the best-sounding receivers in its price class" and adding that it has a "full-bodied, non-etched sound with incredible bass definition and impact." There is also power here, as there are...

The Onkyo 805 is arguably one of the best-sounding receivers in its price class, possessing a full-bodied, non-etched sound with incredible bass definition and impact ; The Onkyo 805 has 130 watts on tap across all seven of its channels and, based on...

The 805, with all of its processing power and amplifier might, gets hot to the touch, so proper ventilation is an absolute must ; I would have liked to see a few more digital audio inputs for those of us with a few extra sources in our systems ; While...

For close to $1,000, the Onkyo 805 is one of my favorite receivers available today. Sure, it doesn't up-convert everything to 1080p, but that's about all it lacks in terms of features when stacking it up against the competition. However, that little...

Review: Onkyo TX-SR805 Receiver

 

When consumers embraced DVD and the concept of home theater, the terms "surround sound," "Dolby Digital" and "DTS" quickly became household names. For years, we watched as films such as U-571, Master and Commander and Revenge of the Sith set new...

Speaking of assignments, the multi-channel analog input is one of my only gripes with the 805. Instead of having its own quick access button (like "DVD" or "Tuner"), you're forced to associate it with another source (such as "DVD") and then use an...

Introduction My grandparents would often attribute greatness to the presence of "something in the water." If there is something in the water, then the designers of today's modern home theater receivers are a hydrated bunch. The latest crop of receivers...

Decodes DTS Master Audio and Dolby TrueHD, very powerful

Extremely complex, poor on-screen help, no HD Radio tuner or network capability

The TX-SR805 can provide some of the best audio you're likely to hear outside a theatre - once you've managed to set it up.

Onkyo TX-SR805 review

 

Onkyo sets out its stall with this well-equipped yet affordable receiver.

Excellent sound ; Power in abundance ; Cutting-edge codec support

No onboard video scaling ; No LAN connection

An excellent array of features and without a mind blowing price tag, definitely worth your consideration
