Onkyo TX-SR805

CNET
20 February 2008
  • Summary: The Onkyo TX-SR805 is an all-around excellent AV receiver with plenty of audiophile appeal, but its less-than-ideal video performance may give HDTV aficionados a reason to hold out for higher-end alternatives.
  • Pros: Three HDMI 1.3 inputs; converts analog video sources to HDMI; onboard Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio decoding; THX Neural surround processing; XM- and Sirius-ready; automatic speaker calibration; switches as many as six high-definition video sources; multiroom functionality for second and third zones.
  • Cons: Downconverts 1080i component video signals to 720p when outputting over HDMI; HDMI video quality converted from analog sources may not satisfy videophiles; current crop of high-def disc players lack bit-stream output, which is needed to utilize the receiver's onboard Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio decoding.

Onkyo TX-SR805 : un ampli audio et vidéo HD

tekit.fr
3 February 2008
  • Summary: La HD est au cœur de cet ampli signé Onkyo. Un modèle bien né qui ne néglige rien au niveau des décodeurs audio et de la puissance développée. Frappé du label THX Ultra 2, il intègre le Dolby TrueHD et le DTS HD ainsi que des prises HDMI 1.3a. Que du bonheur ! C'est un fait incontestable, les amplificateurs audio-vidéo sont en avance sur leur temps, ce modèle Onkyo illustre à merveille ce propos.
  • Pros: Le prix Les décodeurs audio HD
  • Cons: Pas de port USB Pas de port Ethernet
