Listen Up If You’re Serious About Home Entertainment
With its advanced processing and fabulous array of connections, the TX-NR809 is ready to lift the roof off. Eight HDMI® inputs handle all your high-def content, from master-quality audio to upscaled 4K video. Home network capability lets you bring streaming internet radio and PC audio to your living room. And the drop-down front panel conceals a plethora of one-touch audio controls and A/V inputs. Video—whether standard or high definition—gets the royal treatment from a high-quality HQV® Vida™ processor and independent ISF calibration for each source. Advanced audio options include bi-amping, 7.2 multichannel pre-outs, and distributed multi-zone audio. As you’d expect from a receiver near the top of Onkyo’s mid-range line-up, construction is first-rate. A massive transformer, symmetrical L/R channels, separate power and pre-amp blocks, and a highly rigid chassis provide the bedrock for a superlative audio performance. Built with the serious home theater fan in mind, the TX-NR809 offers a class-leading mix of power, features, and performance.
Network Capability Delivers Internet Radio and Network Audio Streaming
Linking directly to the internet or to your home PC via a local network, the TX-NR809 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-NR809 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-NR809’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.
ISF Video Calibration for Accurate Video Reproduction
ISF (Imaging Science Foundation) video calibration dramatically improves home theater video by enabling sharper-focused, fuller-resolution images and a more accurate color balance. Turning your A/V receiver into a true video hub, this function ensures that every video source is independently calibrated for your connected high-definition display. Also, ISF video calibration has been shown to improve energy savings in displays and projectors by up to 50%.
