Onkyo TX-NR809 Receiver Review

BigPictureBigSound
22 February 2012
  • Conclusion: Calling these my "final" musings on the subject would be somewhat disingenuous, as I plan to bite the bullet and buy my very own TX-NR809 receiver and make it a permanent, central part of my home theater rig. Based on what I've seen/heard it do, and what it promises to do in the future, I look forward to discovering its many precise customizations and refining its varied settings to run my home theater exactly the way I want it to be run.
  • Pros: So many ways to customize this receiver to our exact needs!, So many ports!, Outstanding audio and video hardware onboard, So many digital music options, online and locally, Broad complement of Audyssey and Dolby enhancements, including configurable height and width channels and Dolby Volume
  • Cons: No AirPlay, Twitchy iPod/iPhone connectivity, Deep menus and sub-menus can sometimes be non-intuitive

Onkyo TX-NR809 Wireless Network 7.2 A/V Receiver

Secrets of Home Theater and High Fidelity
9 January 2012
  • Summary: The Onkyo TX-NR809 is a fantastic value in its class. It offers excellent performance and a bevy of features that will make any home theater enthusiast happy. An MSRP of $1,099 may sound high, but when you consider that it can take the place of at least 2 components you might otherwise have, it is well worth the price. Once again, Onkyo has put out a first-rate product that I enthusiastically recommend.

Onkyo TX-NR809 Review – THX Certified 7.2-Channel Network A/V Receiver with 8 HDMI inputs

Review Horizon
9 August 2011
  • Conclusion: The Onkyo TX-NR809 is the best received I ever had / tested. It is feature packed, offers a large number of HDMI inputs, every Internet Radio  / music streaming client you could want and a good DLNA client implementation. It runs fairly cool compared with previous Onkyo generations and offers a very nice sound packing a lot of punch while keeping a smooth and clear sound. I got mine for $699 shipped and I am really happy with its performance.
  • Pros: 7 x 135 W power, smooth and clear sound, excellent network connectivity, clients for the most popular streaming services, good DLNA implementation, price, well designed remote control
  • Cons: The first received I tested that  needs time to boot. It is not really a complaint, I understand that it is essentially a computer at core but it feels weird., Bump noise from the subwoofer every time the receiver is powered on. I would like this fixed in a future firmware release if possible.

  • Excerpt: Med otte HDMI-kanaler tager Onkyo tilslutningsudfordringen i strakt arm. Her kan også billedet opskaleres op til 4K opløsning, fire gange 1080p! Produktet kan streame musik fra pc, har internetradio og de med Spotify-konto kan desuden glæde sig over direkte adgang via receiveren. Apple- og Android telefoner kan tage over som fjernbetjening via app´en OnkyoRemote.
  • Pros: Meget god lyd, Godt med kraft, Netværksstreaming
  • Cons: Mangler direct-knapper på fjernbetjeningen
