A truly excellent home cinema amp and a high bar for rivals to reach

The upscaling is 4k not 1080p... Right?

Yes, "the amp will upscale past 1080p right up to 4K resolution".

I've seen other dimensions quoted elsewhere. Most particularly, the D (depth) dimesion which you quote as 38cm I've seen as 46. Which is correct as this is a major consideration for my installation site

The depth of 46.9cm is in the box – it's 38cm unboxed as stated on the Onkyo website.

Why has it taken so long for What HiFi to review the 809? They all came out at the same time, right?

I'd be very interested to know what improvements the 809 has over the 709. This question has been asked on other posts but mysteriously never answered.

Cheers!

When a manufacturer launches a complete range, it tends to place different models with different publications, to get as wide a spread of coverage as possible.

Sorry to be anoying but this reciever only ways 12.2kgs not 16.2Kgs.

Not annoying at all, Jagace – the packed weight had been entered instead of the weight of the receiver alone. It's now corrected.

Thanks Andy and Andrew.
I also doubt that this AV Receiver is 30 cm high as stated in the specs Smile

No, it's 17.4cm tall, as stated in the specs.

I have the impression that the TX-NR709 has 2 HDMI Video outs
Can you please confirm this?
If yes, then please correct the Tech Specs

Btw, if I want to use my AV Receiver with both a TV and a Projector, I need 2 HDMI outputs, correct? (If I don't want to switch cables all the time of course Smile)

Yes it has, and yes you either need two HDMI outs or an HDMI splitter. I've asked for the tech specs to be changed.

Specs now updated.

 

Sorry to be annoying but HDMI can carry both Video and Audio (from what I know). When you say 1 HDMI video Out and 2 HDMI Audio Out what is the difference?

HDMI Video out 1
Optical digital out
HDMI Audio out 2
HDMI Video in 5

The difference between the specifications not having been corrected, and having been corrected. Which they now have been. Apologies for any confusion.

Ok Thanks
I think it is better to say 2 HDMI outputs and not specify Audio or Video
Written like this now, it looks there are 4 HDMI outputs (or maybe it is only my impression) Smile

Agree, Dennis, it can look a bit confusing so something we'll bear in mind when we next update the tech specs.
