Targeting the sweet spot where affordability meets superb functionality, Onkyo’s network-capable TX-NR609 A/V receiver takes you one step closer to fully integrated home entertainment. Now you can kick back on the sofa, play audio files on your computer or stream internet radio, and enjoy the extreme fidelity from this THX Select2 Plus Certified A/V receiver!
Six HDMI inputs - including one on the front panel - provide support for 3D video and ultra-high resolution 4K video upscaling via the cutting-edge Marvell Qdeo processing technologies. HDMI also carries master-quality audio formats from Dolby and DTS, as well as the expanded surround sound of Audyssey DSX and Dolby Pro Logic IIz. Along with 7.2-channel configuration including two subwoofer pre-outs, three-stage inverted Darlington circuitry and Onkyo’s proprietary WRAT, you’ll hear every whisper, feel every explosion and never miss a beat.
A front-panel USB port allows for direct digital connection to both iPod/iPhone and USB storage devices. Another connectivity highlight comes in the form of Powered Zone 2, which allows you to play a different audio source in a second room equipped with stereo speakers. Meanwhile, a suite of Audyssey technologies together with a user-friendly on-screen display and GUI make it easy to set up, adjust settings and navigate your content. All this and more makes the TX-NR609 an irresistible choice for the value-seeking home theater fan.
HDMI with 3D Ready and Audio Return Channel The HDMI implementation on the TX-NR609 supports both 3D video and an Audio Return Channel, along with numerous high-resolution formats. 3D video brings exciting possibilities to home entertainment, with movie, game, and broadcast content on the increase and 3D-compatible TVs now on the market. Meanwhile, the Audio Return Channel allows audio content received directly by your HDTV’s tuner to be sent “upstream” via HDMI to your A/V receiver, without the need for a separate S/PDIF audio cable.
Dolby TrueHD/PLIIz and dts-HD Master Audio With the integrated Dolby TrueHD and dts-HD Master Audio decoders, enjoy lossless and immersive surround sound like it was meant to be. Dolby Pro Logic IIz brings the added dimension of height to create an immersive 7.1- or 9.1-channel surround sound experience from any stereo, 5.1, 6.1, or 7.1 movie, music, TV, or game audio source. Additionally, Dolby Pro Logic IIz is uniquely capable of decoding specially encoded height channel information and also supports the traditional 7.1-channel configurations of Dolby Pro Logic IIx.
