Earlier this month Onkyo announced its 2011 range of multichannel receivers, and here at Bristol you can see two of the forthcoming models, the £250 TX-SR309 and £500 TX-NR609, in the Onkyo room at the show.
The 7.2-channel TX-NR609 is THX Select2 Plus certified, and is the first home cinema receiver in the world to use the Marvell Qdeo video processor, allowing upscaling of video to a maximum of 3840x2160 pixels (aka 4k resolution).
Networking is built-in, either through built-in Ethernet or an optional UWF-1 wireless USB Adapter, giving an IEEE 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi connection to all Onkyo network-capable receivers with a USB port.
Audyssey DSX decoding, 2EQ, Dynamic Volume and Dynamic EQ are also provided, and there's a new overlaid GUI for easy set-up.
The budget TX-SR309 drops networking, Zone 2 and Audyssey features, and has three HDMI inputs.
