-3rd zone
-THX Ultra2
Price difference $200. What advantage has 100 Mhz vs 50 Mhz? What is Burr-Brown?

805 vs 875:
-Faroudja DCDi vs HQV Reon-VX Video Processing and NSV Precision Video
-Dual Push-Pull Amp with 3 stage inverted
-More inputs
-More power?
Price difference $600. What is the dual push-pull amp? How does it improve quality? Is the HQV Reon-VX far superior than Faroudja? Any comparison?

The 705 also has 3 HDMI inputs vs only 2 on the 605.

The fear now is that with lower priced receivers like the 605 offering full decoding support, Sony won't honor their promise and upgrade the PS3 to decode it internally.

This could be true. Since i recently purchased a marantz sr7001 i'm still looking for the firmware upgrade for the ps3 to decode DTS HD MA. I am very impressed with the list of features and badging these receivers have. The much cheaper TX-SR705 has more features(minus the number of hdmi inputs) than my marantz sr7001.

Despite the impressive features the onkyo 705 and up have, i probably would never compare the quality of sound to a marantz or harman kardon receiver.
To me, after listening to several onkyos, it seems this company is going for a more quantity over quality motto. Who knows though, these new receivers might have improved sound over the previous models but at these prices, I doubt it.

Honestly, who all here would buy this receiver if it didn't decode DTS HD MA ?
I highly suggest you don't blind buy any of these till at least hearing them. After hearing the tx-sr674 and tx-sr804, i wasn't too impressed with the sound quality so hopefully these new ones will be better.
Just my 2 cents

Will the 605 have the pass-through to upgrade all to HDMI out?

don, there is something to what you say. Now that I have my Onkyo 604 hooked up, I'm quite suprised how it sounds a little more "tinny" than the my previous receiver, which was a Pioneer.

Maybe I need to adjust it a little more (it could be the auto-setup EQ), but right now, it's about the same, but not as good as the last Onkyo I owned, which was about 4-5yrs ago.

Price difference $200. What advantage has 100 Mhz vs 50 Mhz? What is Burr-Brown?

The DACs convert the digital audio inside the receiver into analog signals for amplification and output to your speakers. The Burr-Brown PCM1796 parts provide higher quality conversion.

The 50MHz vs 100MHz refers to the bandwidth of the component switching. Analog connections like component are not lossless, so there will always be some amount of picture degradation when using component video switching. Higher bandwidth component connections reduce that picture degradation, particularly with 1080p signals. For example, if you are using 1080p component output from an Xbox360, you would want the model with 100MHz component switching.

If properly implemented, then yes, HQV Reon-VX processing is far superior to Faroudja. Faroudja is the sort of processing you find in most $1000-$1500 LCDs and $100 DVD players. HQV is the sort of processing you find in $8000 to $15000 displays and $800-$2000 DVD players.

If you have a display with above average (or better) video processing, the Faroudja units will probably degrade your picture quality. In contrast, if properly implemented, HQV will significantly improve your picture quality. Presumably, Onkyo will provide the option to disable the video processing, as you would probably want to do if you bought one of the units with Faroudja.

In the off-chance that someone from Onkyo is reading this thread, please make sure that your TX-SR875 and TX-NR905 pass the tests on the new Silicon Optix HQV HD-DVD (Blu-ray version coming soon). This high-definition test disk is currently available to press and manufacturers by request. Simply testing with the older HQV DVD -- the SD version of the tests -- is not adequate to ensure a quality implementation.

You would think with these being advertised that Onkyo's HD DVD player is just around the corner as well.

Do you think, if I bought the 505 and hooked up a Toshiba HD-A2 to it and that decoded the True HD soundtrack and sent it to the 505 via HDMI as LPCM, that the 505 would also apply the Bass management correctly for the LFE? Right now I have the XR57 and that can't apply BM on the LFE, so I'm getting little to no bass - if this receiver could do that then this would be ideal! Any ideas anyone?

Wait a minute here. Even if the Onkyo 605 offers full decoding support, the PS3 has to be updated so we can enjoy DTS-HD MA? I thought that since the Onkyo supports HD MA, we will be able to have it without any firmware updates on the PS3. Help me out here guys!

For real -- do the control knobs - tuning volume have any back lighting? If they do not it will be real easy for me to slide this one in and remove the SR573 and the little women will never know and save me a discussion.

I'm 100% interested in the 905 as my current receiver is the TX-NR901. I love Net-Tune. That list says "WMA" but I presume it will still have good old net tune and support MP3's eh? I would absolutely love it if Onkyo made it support Ogg Vorbis, Flac, MP3, and WMA.

The 674 has the backlight and you can turn it off... Don't ask me why I know that

The Sony PS3 must be updated to output the Dolby Digital Plus, DTS-HD MA, and TrueHD bitstreams over HDMI. This is a relatively simple task compared to adding built-in DTS-HD MA decoding. Said a different way, the PS3 hardware is HDMI 1.3, but at the moment, the PS3 software only supports HDMI 1.1 features.

Sony will almost certainly offer HDMI 1.3 software support in a firmware update later this Summer, but whether they do so before the first AVS members get their hands on the new Onkyo or Denon receivers...is unknown.

I was about 5 mins from clicking on an 804 for $654 shipped but stumbled across this site and now got the "bug". Its hard to keep up with all the changes since I bought my 747 almost 10 years ago.

I generally like to buy the new stuff since there are likely to be less niggling things in the newest stuff. Either way you'll enjoy great sound and great video.

This being said, I'm posting because I'm having a hard time understanding the "NEW FEATURES" of the new receivers, and if they would even be realised with my current componets.

I think its time to replace my 702. I got it from CC as a open box last year when my Sony died. I am looking at the 705 and I might just slide this into the rack "unnoticed".
Reason for unhooking, I am "dusting" the equipment, the bam!, replaced undetected.

When's the 705 coming out again, oh, anybody have a picture.

You'd have to get the 605. The 505 can't pull the audio off the HDMI. It's just a passthru. As far as the bass management, your guess is as good as mine.

I believe if the audio is sent via HDMI instead of multi-channel you can apply the any of the sound settings the receiver is capable of.

I think what he is asking and what I am wondering also is the denon887 will matrix 5.1 LPCM to 7.1 LPCM and accept 7.1 LPCM it doesn't say whether this Onkyo will do that.

If it can't then I'd be more apt to buy a Denon now.

The PS3 ships with 1.3 hardware yet it's software is 1.1? Idiotic. Since Sony couldn't even integrate something as simple as custom XMB backgrounds, I'll assume the firmware will be updated to pass Master Audio when the PS4 can be preordered.

In any case, I am indeed worried from going to an Onkyo from an H/K. Onkyo is not the first company to come to mind when it comes to audio quality, but many say that their units have a neutral sound, as opposed to an H/K, which must be colored to some extent since they are quite obviously warm sounding. So maybe it won't be a bad swap afterall.

The TX-SR875 looks like the real deal for me. It will be interesting to see the offerings from Denon, Yamaha and Pioneer compared to this. Maybe with this info, they will be forced to speed up their press-releases, at least to stop people from buying Onkyo?? One can always hope...

Yeah, Sony promised they would do this, I'm just nervous that as the prices of the receivers come down with internal decoding, they will back off on making PS3 1.3 support a priority. Sony is not known for being forthright and their honesty (check the new Sony receiver thread to see what I mean).

Everyone who owns a HDMI 1.1/1.2a compliant receiver is going to be pissed if the PS3 can't decode the other formats like Sony promised.

Well since I asked the original question, I agree. Most likely I will return the Denon tomorrow but I'm not feeling too good about it. There are no real specs yet on the Onkyo's so how can anyone really know what to expect.

Hope I'm not making a mistake.

The 505 doesn't use the audio from HDMI. To do that you'd need the 605 and up. the only Audio options for the 505/575 is Analog 7.1 and SPDIF (Optical/coax).

No thye 605 will do the decode for dts-HD MA. I think you confused a poster who said he needed that update for his current NON dts-HD MA decoding reciever

The 605 and 705 Look Identical Just the 705 has a THX logo on it.

Does anyone know if it will be possible to override the upscaling? I've never seen how the upscaling receivers work in conjunction with the source components.

I'm considering the 805, but I currently use the Toshiba HD-XA2 to play SD-DVD. The upscaling on the player will be superior to the receiver. Does the player upscale HDMI inputs? Will this degrade my PQ? Is there a way to shut it down on one of the inputs, so I can have it running just for my cable/DVR input?

The audio codecs and the low prices sound great, but if its going to degrade my PQ, I think I'll just go with a Denon 2807, pass the True HD over PCM to the receiver and hope that someday soon, SONY adds DTS-MA to the PS3.

Any input would be appreciated.
