  • 7.2 channel
  • 6HDMI

4 out of 5 eggs So far, so good... 04/25/2011

This review is from: ONKYO TX-NR609 7.2-Channel Network A/V Receiver

Pros:

2 zone, 2 sub out (1 assignable to zone2), improved Onkyo design, THX, Smooth Gui, Networking capable, 100w per, 4K UP via Marvell Qdeo, Component to HDMI switching, PC (vga) input, and probably more I am forgetting.

Cons:

No power in rear (I have always plugged my sub's power to receiver), cheap remote w/no backlight, No cover or door for front inputs.

I would have given 5 egg's if it had at least 2 of these. these aren't a huge deal just irritating.

**this may not be the receivers fault just FYI**
I cannot hook HDMI out directly to display. I have to go out to a switchbox then to display.

Other Thoughts:

All in all this is a good receiver. I paid $399 on an Easter sale. Overall it provides a smooth detailed sound. I have not had much time to test, but have tried music from usb drive, pandora via BR, BR movie with DTS HD, and dvd DD. Imaging and soundfield never had me wanting to tweak the settings, which is something that I couldn't stop myself from doing with my previous AVR.
My main cons are relatively minor, however I find each of them quite irritating. The remote feels cheap in the hand and makes me question how long it will last. The new design is a big improvement, but why mess it up with a big hole in the bottom corner? They should have put everything under a door, or provided a pop off cover. I would have left on as I have no real use for the imputs other than the seup mic. And no switched power? Really!
THX may be a marketing ploy, but it sounds cool to say and makes me feel good to play with it so mission accomplished.

I will give more feedback l8tr
