Hi All,

The Onkyo TX-NR929 has been announced here in the UK - it is 9.2 & £1500 - I attach a link to the offical Onkyo data sheet & product web-page. Not sure if the US versions have been announced but hopefully this may give some insight with regards to them.

Thanks. Yes, the US version was also announced, here's the product page:

http://www.onkyousa.com/Products/model.php?m=TX-NR929&class=Receiver&source=prodClass

The US manual isn't online yet... but when it does go live, it'll likely be at this link:

Here's the product sheet:

Looks like replacement for 1010 3010 than direct up to th 5010 ( keeping as the flagship) just a guess.

Hi All,

Well, I am very peeved off already - just getting fed up with Onkyo tbh. I have been waiting for a 9.2 AVR that has both DSX & Neo:X & can run both Wides & Heights at the same time. The 929 will do this with Neo:X but not DSX. Why the hell would Onkyo do this sort of crap - what possible reason could they have to allow full use of one format & not another? It is just so frustrating as there was no valid reason to do this imo - At this stage, I hope Denon kicks their bloody arses!

At the current prices the 818 is going for and with 4k content in the distant future, I see very little reason to get this unless your running a 9.2 system

No component video cross-conversion either. That's very weird -- they include component inputs, but the receiver can't upscale them or output them to HDMI?

MSRP is $100 higher than the 818 but some upgrades I see...

  • 2 more channels
  • built-in Wireless
  • 2nd HDMI board?
  • minor amp upgrade?
  • more HDMI, Optical inputs
  • supports Apple Airplay with an optional accessory (a stretch to call this an upgrade)

There's probably more I'm missing. I guess it's worth $100 more than the 818? That said, unless you plan to run 9 channels, the new Denon X4000 seems like more features for the same price as the 929; and with the 818 going for almost 1/2 the price of the 929, it still seems like the best price/performance option.

I am looking to upgrade my Pioneer 1021 and have been watching the 818 for a while. Now I see the new announcements about the 828 and 929 and my decision gets more difficult. I have always been a Pioneer guy but have heard great things about the Onkyo line. I am anxious to read what others see and feel about the 929 and determine whether it is my next purchase or if I should look elsewhere.

I'm looking to finally upgrade my old TX-NR989. Does anyone know if this will support "actual" 9.2 channel playback (sans Zone 2 or 3), so I could eventually upgrade my front R/L speakers to something more substantial and roll the current ones up for use as a "height channel"?

It looks as though this would be an excellent upgrade path for me. Aside from giving up my torroidal amp, it looks as though it will build upon everything that I've currently got. I don't see any mention of support for HD Radio. Is that option no longer available?

TX-NR929 is a 9.2 ch AVR. No mention of HD Radio in spec sheet. Ships in July.

Specs say that it has 11.1 channels pre-out. Anyone know if this means it can do 11.1 like he 3010 and 5010 - with an external 2-channel amp?

[EDIT] I just checked the manual, and yes it can do a full 11.1. This is a great cheaper alternative to the 3010, IMO.

That would be 11.2 on the pre-outs. Although it has eleven speaker outs, it only has nine channels of amplification. The explanation is in the details. So at one time it could power nine channels with two sub pre-outs.

I am still trying to decide if the 929 with 4k pass through is the correct decision or should I go with last years tx-nr1010. I don't have 4k yet, but I will in the next 5 years. What do you think is the better receiver if they are within a couple hundred bucks of each other? Does anyone have the 929 or have the ability to shed some light on which would be the better receiver in 7.2 home theater environment? I am replacing a tx-nr1007 and need the ability is pass 3D at the moment.

I purchased the Onkyo TX-NR929. My problem is I am a newbie and I am having problems setting up the remote control to control the other components in the system. The Onkyo remote controller is the RC-840M. If I want to turn off a component such as my Blu-ray Disc/DVD player (and have entered the proper 5 digit control code), what button do I push on the remote control to turn the component (e.g., Blu-ray player or any other component) off?

 

           Thanks for your help.
