This review is from: ONKYO TX-NR809 7.2-Channel 3D Network A/V Receiver
Just upgraded my 5 year old 674 onkyo. What a progress in technology when it comes camparing!!!!Clean sound. Powerfull for large sized appartment. It is The hub for all home video audio needs. Plenty hdmi ins and 2 outs!! Has bi amping for front speakers unfortunately 2nd zone will not be available in this set up. Very nice looking and intuitive osd. Neat feature of volume displayed on screen when lowering or increasing sound. Good looking unit. Love streaming radio through the unit can add your own stations as well if they are not listed on the menu. It gets even better with android onkyo app which lets you control the unit with your smartphone!!! Just this feature alone gets another egg to already 5 i gave!!! The control works over home wifi and can stream music stored on the phone wirelessly!!!! Unit doesn't get hot at all eventhough it is in confined space the old unit was like a pan fry after an hour of use above 50% volume. 809 has 2 fans inside which i have not yet seen come on
2nd zone not able to work if fronts are bi amped. Hope onkyo app will get upgrades and support over the time. Wish there was some kind of screen visualisation while web radio plays it just shows name of radio being played which is Boring to look at also plasma tv might suffer burn in if left for long time.
