Get Connected to the Cutting Edge of High-End Home Theater
The TX-NR3009 sports a huge array of digital and analog connections, including eight 3D-ready HDMI® inputs, 9.2 multichannel pre-outs, and a USB input for connecting flash drives and digital audio players. An Ethernet jack, meanwhile, supports networked content in the form of internet radio and streaming audio from a PC or media server. Processing, too, is top-class. Audyssey MultEQ® XT32 achieves optimal balance for movie soundtracks and breathtaking realism for music sources. Along with sophisticated surround-sound technologies from Dolby and Audyssey, the TX-NR3009 employs DTS Neo:X™ to create an immersive nine-channel soundscape from any audio source. Video sources also get the red-carpet treatment, thanks to HQV® Vida™ processing, independent ISF calibration, and 4K upscaling via Qdeo™ technology. Onkyo’s dedication to build quality is reflected in the low-resonance chassis, multiple transformers, three-stage inverted Darlington circuitry, and high-grade audio terminals. All this and more earns the TX-NR3009 coveted THX® Ultra2 Plus™ certification—your guarantee of an ovation-worthy performance every time.
THX® Ultra2 Plus™ Certified
The ultimate benchmark for home audio performance, THX Ultra2 Plus is specified for rooms where the screen-to-seat viewing distance is more than 4 meters and the room volume is 85 cubic meters or greater. To achieve THX Ultra2 Plus certification, the TX-NR3009 must meet the world’s most demanding standards for home theater audio quality and performance, and must play at reference volume levels with minimal distortion.
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-NR3009 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-NR3009 also brings to life a huge array of internet radio channels from vTuner, plus on-demand music streaming from Spotify and AUPEO!*. 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-NR3009’s internet connectivity has the added benefit of making firmware updates simpler than ever.
VLSC™ (Vector Linear Shaping Circuitry)
Onkyo’s VLSC employs a unique digital-to-analog conversion circuit to mitigate the effects of signal noise. Data is converted between discrete sampling points, which are then joined with analog vectors in real-time to produce a continuous output wave form. The result—a noiseless, smooth analog signal based on the digital source.
