Onkyo Releases Network AV Recievers

Publish date:

Onkyo announced the release of three new mid- and upper mid-range network AV receivers for 2010: the TX-NR1008, TX-NR808, and TX-NR708. Each of these models is THX Select2 Plus certified and offers the latest processing and user-friendly features to support multi-room set-ups, network audio streaming, iPhone/iPod-compatible USB, and fully immersive 3D capable home theater with multidimensional surround sound to match.

All of these models have seven of the latest HDMI 1.4a connections, specifying compatibility with the new 3D video formats, which promise to bring an exciting new dimension to movies and games in the home. These new receivers are also compatible with the mandatory formats for 3D broadcast content of “Side-By-Side (Half)” and “Top-and-Bottom” 3D video formats.

HDMI is also the conduit for 1080p video upscaling of all video inputs, regardless of native resolution, via Faroudja DCDi Cinema™. On all three of the new Onkyo receiver models, DCDi Cinema works to remove jaggies during the video signal deinterlacing process, resulting in smooth progressive-scan video images.
