Enter the Realm of Fully Immersive 9.2-Channel Entertainment
The TX-NR1009 transforms your living room into an immersive entertainment space. As the world’s first receiver to feature DTS Neo:X™, it harnesses 9.2 channels of pristine audio to create expanded soundscapes with spine-tingling ambience. Build quality propels the TX-NR1009 to the very top of the mid-range class. Housed in a rigid, vibration-reducing cabinet are separate power/pre-amp blocks, a massive transformer, and symmetrical L/R channels. This rock-solid base supports high-power amplification and a superb range of connections and processing features. Eight HDMI® inputs handle 3D video from Blu-ray, 4K video upscaled by Qdeo™ technology, and studio-quality lossless audio formats. An Ethernet port lets you incorporate internet radio and networked audio from a PC or media server. And USB ports let you play audio files stored on a flash drive or iPod/iPhone. All your video sources benefit from high-quality HQV® Vida™ technology and independent ISF calibration. And for the dedicated home theater enthusiast, the TX-NR1009 includes advanced features such as bi-amping, 9.2 multichannel pre-outs, and powered Zone 2 and Zone 3 audio.
Network Capability Delivers Internet Radio and Network Audio Streaming
Linking directly to the internet or to a media server or home PC via a local network, the TX-NR1009 takes streaming audio and internet radio to a whole new level. MP3, WMA, WMA Lossless, FLAC, WAV, Ogg Vorbis, AAC, and LPCM audio files can now be played back through your main system with unprecedented power and fidelity. The TX-NR1009 also brings to life a huge array of internet radio channels from vTuner. As well as being compatible with earlier platforms, the receiver is compatible with Microsoft’s Windows® 7 platform, which includes the DLNA 1.5-specified “Play To” media-streaming feature. The TX-NR1009’s internet connectivity has the added benefit of making firmware updates simpler than ever.
High-Quality Video Processing with HQV® Vida™ VHD1900
The sophisticated HQV Vida VHD1900 processor is designed to enhance the quality of both standard-definition and high-definition video sources. The chip employs multi-cadence tracking, expanded 12-bit color processing, and four-field motion-adaptive de-interlacing to optimize video quality and detail. Two new HQV technologies are incorporated into the VHD1900. Auto HQV™ works to automatically enhance the incoming image. And HQV StreamClean™ cleans up compressed video in real time by eliminating mosquito and block noise from lower-quality sources such as online video sites.
DTS Neo:X™ Adds Extra Dimensions to Surround Sound
The TX-NR1009 is the first receiver in the world to feature DTS Neo:X, a new technology that offers a multitude of ways to set up the speakers in a 9.1-channel home theater system. A basic 5.1-channel set-up can be complemented by one of three different arrangements: (1) You can add surround back and front-height speakers to bring out ambient, non-directional sounds; (2) You can add surround back and front-wide speakers to provide a more expansive soundstage; or (3) You can add front-height and front-width speakers to create an immersive space without needing to install rear speakers.
