ONKYO Debuts 3 THX-Certified, 3D-Ready Receivers
Onkyo recently announced the release of three new mid- and upper mid-range network A/V receivers for 2010: the TX-NR1008, TX-NR808, and TX-NR708. Each of these models is THX Select2 Plus certified and offers the latest processing and so-called user-friendly features to support multi-room set-ups, network audio streaming, iPhone/iPod-compatible USB, and is fully 3D capable.
All of these models have seven HDMI 1.4a ports, specifying compatibility with the new 3D video formats, and are also compatible with the mandatory formats for 3D broadcast content of “Side-By-Side (Half)” and “Top-and-Bottom” 3D video formats.
In addition, each of these network receivers includes a rear-panel Ethernet (no wireless, though) that can be used to stream audio files including MP3, WMA, WMA Lossless, FLAC, WAV, Ogg Vorbis, AAC, and LPCM. They can also access a range of different streaming Internet radio services, from Pandora, Rhapsody, vTuner, and Sirius Internet Radio, and newly expanded services from Napster, Mediafly, and Slacker Internet radio.
