Onkyo BD-SP809 review

4 May 2012
  • Conclusion: There’s plenty to like about this Onkyo player, but ultimately it left me feeling rather nonplussed. You see, I really enjoyed its predecessor, the BD-SP808. Even a year ago, that model was lacking niceties, but it compensated with raw performance. Somehow this model just doesn’t hit the same buttons. Meanwhile, the feature deficit now appears even more marked.
  • Pros: AV performance; twin HDMI outputs; build quality and design
  • Cons: No SACD or DVD-A playback; mismatched remote control; limited media streaming

Beeldmaand: Onkyo BD-SP809 Blu-ray speler - ook voor beeldschoon geluid

6 July 2012
  • Summary: In het middensegment heeft Onkyo met de BD-SP809 een dijk van een blu-ray speler weten neer te zetten. Het apparaat zet zowel op visueel als op audiovlak een indrukwekkende prestatie neer. Met deze speler is het nu mogelijk om op een redelijk betaalbare manier een blu-ray speler in huis te halen die niet alleen mooi beeld laat zien, maar daarnaast ook ‘beeldschoon’ geluid laat horen.

  • Excerpt: Der BD-SP 809-Player von Onkyo glänzt mit Haptik, nicht mit Ausstattung. Trotzdem hat er alles Interessante an Bord, spielt auch 3D-Blu-rays und bietet einen zweifachen…
