ONKYO TX-NR809 7.2-Channel 3D Network A/V Receiver

  • 7.2 channel
  • 8HDMI/3D passthrough
  • Dolby True HD, DD Plus, DTS-HD Master Audio
ICON Loading...

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.

  • newegg HDMI Support for 3D Video and Audio Return Channel The HDMI implementation on the TX-NR809 receiver 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.
  • newegg THX Select2 Plus Certified THX Select2 Plus certification incorporates THX Loudness Plus, and is designed for AV receivers in rooms where the screen-to-seat viewing distance is approximately 10-12 feet, and the room size is approximately 2000 cubic feet. AV receivers that achieve THX Select2 Plus certification meet the world’s most demanding home theater standards for audio quality and performance, and promise to play at reference volume levels with minimal distortion. Because ambient sounds and bass can be lost or perceived differently when the volume is lowered, THX Loudness Plus automatically adjusts the front-to-back speaker level and frequency balance to ensure you experience all of the rich details of movies when listening below reference level.
  • newegg Marvell Qdeo Video Chip for 4K Upscaling and Processing The Qdeo is a suite of QuietVideo processing technologies that produces quiet and natural video free from noise and artifacts. Using this technology, you can enjoy 4K upscaling and processing for your contents for a more stunning video experience.
  • newegg Audyssey DSX and Dolby Pro Logic IIz Add New Dimensions to Surround Sound Of course the TX-NR809 supports high-definition audio formats like Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Audio to give your Blu-ray Disc movies' soundtracks unsurpassed audio quality. In addition, 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. Audyssey DSX lets you augment a standard 7.1-channel surround set-up with two “front high” channels.
  • newegg Network & DLNA Support With the network capability, the ONKYO TX-NR809 receiver delivers Internet Radio reception and Network Audio streaming via Ethernet. And the DLNA support enables DLNA-enabled devices connected to a home network to share their content with one another directly, without the need for a complex set-up procedure.
  • newegg Audyssey MultEQ XT Advanced Room-correction and Speaker Calibration Audyssey MultEQ XT for System Equalization removes much of the distortion caused by speaker enclosures and the typical room environment and produces far superior sound than on comparable products that lack correction capabilities. Audyssey Dynamic Volume maintains the desired listening level for all content, while optimizing the dynamic range. Audyssey Dynamic EQ for loudness correction.

1 out of 5 eggsOnkyo still having HDMI audio issues

Pros: Was very good while it worked.

Cons: This is the second Onkyo receiver to fail (HDMI audio fails to start) in 3 years. I would stay away from Onkyo. This one failed precisely 3 weeks afer my 2 year waranty expired.

4 out of 5 eggsNo regrets - Still a good purchase 2 years later

Pros: The audio quality of this amplifier is quite outstanding. The receiver is pretty heavy too, weighing in at a about 40 pounds. The front high/wide speakers are not necessary but worth setting up if you have the room and extra speakers to give it a try. Some movies and music really do benefit from the high/wide options. Also, Onkyo has kept up with software updates for the receiver over my 2 years of owner ship. Usually a few times a year there is an update to correct minor issues or add a small features. The zone2/3 option is nice also if you want to set speakers up in another room or outside. The receiver can also stream music directly from a pc (via DLNA) or from a smart device (using the Onkyo remote app).

Cons: The remote control can be confusing to use at times since a single button may serve multiple functions depending on what you are currently doing with the receiver. It also is not fully back lit, so trying to use it in a dark room while watching a movie is about impossible. Using the ipod dock (port) with remote is very awkward. The manual does not clearly state how to navigate and change modes using the remote control. After 20 minutes or so of trial and error, it can be figured out though. Also, the hdmi switching is quite slow. It can take several seconds to regain the video/audio signal.

Other Thoughts: The Onkyo remote app (which can control this receiver) has gotten much better with the second version. It is easier to navigate the streaming music options as well as controlling zone2 and zone 3 sources. I really do feel this is still a good purchase 2 years later based on how much I use this receiver and still enjoy its sound quality and features. I generally use this receiver between 10-16 hours a week between movies, music, video gaming and sporting events. Throughout the summer I quite frequently use the zone 2 option to power outdoor speakers while also using the main zone in the living room. Most of the music streaming apps do require you to pay a subscription to use them but many offer a free 30 day trial. The pay to stream model was no big deal to me personally since I already had subscribed to many of the music providers already (Sirius, Slacker, Pandora, Spotify).

5 out of 5 eggsONKYO has problem

Pros: I reviewed what I wrote in September 2011 and still feel that this is a great Network receiver. We are very happy with the machine. Excellent Integration of all components with a lot of possible power to the loudspeakers

Cons: The supplied remote is the weakest part of the package. ONKYO has some known issues with this receiver. I had some initial issues yet when known problems arose ONKYO chose not to inform customers. Consequently the unit has failed and I am slightly out of the 2 year warranty period. I bought extended warranty coverage through NEW Egg when the receiver was new so we may never see what ONKYO may have done.

Other Thoughts: Overall quality is a real issue. ONKYO was lauded at one time for high quality products. Can ONKYO still make a product that runs flawlessly for 10 years?

1 out of 5 eggsDied after 2 years

Pros: Network based streaming and could control via smartphone app

Cons: Cheap compared to prior Onkyo products. I have owned 20 Onkyo components over the last 25 years including this TX-NR809, TX-NR901, M-508 and M-504 amps, preamps, integrated amps, CD players, DVD players, tuners, tape decks, EQ, etc. and the quality just seems to go down year after year. I guess time to try Denon as I give up...

2 out of 5 eggsworks well..until it doesn't

Pros: Sounds great, hdmi switching,

Cons: stopped working in 8 months. Now I have to rewire everything back to the old reliable Sony and rewire again when unit is returned from repair. HDMI board prone to failure per service center. Next time it will be Denon or Sony.

5 out of 5 eggsNice receiver

Pros: HDMI switching
7.1 surround
Loads of inputs
volume overlay

Cons: No serious cons. Just to nitpick, it would be nice if there were more indication of from which device an HDMI sync failure occurred, and maybe a hint as to the problem. There is a flashing HDMI text while trying to sync, but you can't tell from that if the problem is with the video source or the display.

Other Thoughts: Primary video source is a PS3, switched through receiver, driving a ceiling-mounted ACER P7500 projector through a Tripp Lite P167-000 HDMI over cat5 active extender. Once I got everything properly connected and the right output settings on the PS3, everything talks together nicely. Currently wired for 5.1, and it sounds beautiful. The receiver replaced a fully functional 10-year-old Denon AVR-1801 (a good receiver at the time) because I wanted HDMI switching to the projector, and a friend was happy with his Onkyo.

4 out of 5 eggsONKYO TX-NR809 7.2

Pros: I first bought the Onkyo TX-NR808 7.2-Channel from Newwegg and it was a total dissapointment the unit was faulty from start - Onkyo offer to service the unit couple time but after the first repair I was not happy to diiconct everything and I decided to contact new egg and they offer a store credit after the unit died shipping was expensive over $80 UPS, but lets go to the main point regarding the ONKYO TX-NR809 7.2-Channel 3D Network A/V Receiver if you're serious about sound and technology and want something that works dont hesitate and get this item I will stand with this 99.9% cost $699 with new egg free shipping and fast delivery this system delivers everything it promises, I have my computer, playstation, Xbox,DVD plyer,on a 55 inch LCD on true 5.1 sorround and everyone that came and enjoy this at my home they all impress and they want to get it for themself.

Cons: the only draw back is the from lip that opens, I witch it did not exist since I use the front USB port to connect my ipod, but other than that is a great receiver stay away from the Onkyo TX-NR808 7.2-Channel

Other Thoughts: stay away from the Onkyo TX-NR808 7.2-Channel

4 out of 5 eggsGreat A/V Receiver...when it works

Pros: Great volume, upscales automatically to 1080p when necessary; 2-year warranty (odds are, you'll NEED it)

Cons: It's freakin' BIG! (it's 7+ inches tall!); after 5 months of ownership, it now overheats and shuts off automatically when I up the volume to 70+ dbs (used to go to 80dbs without even a hickup); still can't get it to sync the receiver remote to the Samsung TV that I have (did sync w/ my cable receiver though); updates to the firmware take up to an hour!

Other Thoughts: Simply put, it's a relatively good receiver. The first four months went by without so much as a blip. Only recently did this thing start to "act up" like others have mentioned. I'm going to call Onkyo myself on Monday and see what they have to say. It better be covered by the warranty, and Onkyo better not charge me for fixing it either.

I'll provide updates if/when possible.

2 out of 5 eggsSuperb product...for awhile

Pros: Very difficult to find a more capable receiver for the money. Onkyo definitely packs their receivers with a wide variety of listening modes/ inputs. Very powerful 7.2 amp with a multitude of speaker wiring options (impedance/bi-amp/ multizone/ etc.)

Cons: After 11 months of perfect performance, the receiver "locked up"-- no response to remote or front panel buttons. Queried Onkyo customer service and received inconsistent information. Eventually Onkyo paid to have the receiver shipped to an authorize repair facility. Took three weeks to receive the unit back. Receiver works okay for now...worried when it will fail again.

Other Thoughts: When it works, this receiver is better than my old Kenwood and current Denon AVR-1912. The Denon is much more consistent though. Research the Onkyo issues and buy if you are willing to accept the possible issues on your unit. Would definitely recommend an extended service plan.

Pros: easy installation and configuration
sounds great. I played a few of my old DVD movies, and could even hear some sound effects that did not hear before with my previous receiver
a lot of features - still exploring all the good features it has to offer.

Cons: can't think of any
