The TX-NR5008 9.2-Channel Network A/V Receiver, Onkyo's new flagship network receiver answers all your home entertainment questions--even some you hadn't yet thought to ask. The quality starts at the very foundations: a massive toroidal transformer, 22,000 µF capacitors, gold-plated terminals, and separate transformers for audio and video processing. Speaking of video, HQV Reon-VX offers the ultimate in 1080p upscaling via HDMI, while ISF calibration gets the best out of every video source. On the audio side, 9.2 speaker channels let you take advantage of lossless Dolby and DTS codecs, as well as expanded surround formats from Audyssey and Dolby. The extra channels also allow you to enjoy a multichannel source in your main room and powered stereo in two other zones. Connections abound, with eight HDMI 1.4a inputs, two USB inputs, and an Ethernet port for streaming audio from your PC or Internet Radio. To simplify setup and adjustments, Onkyo provides a new overlaid on-screen display and Audyssey room correction. It all adds up to one smart and muscular heavyweight contender.

HDMI 1.4a Support for 3D Video and Audio Return Channel
The eight HDMI 1.4a inputs on the TX-NR5008 let you simultaneously connect high-def sources such as a Blu-ray player, gaming consoles, and a cable/satellite tuner. And the two HDMI outputs let you send a pristine signal at the same time to two different high-resolution displays. As the latest version of this connector, HDMI 1.4a adds the exciting possibilities of 3D video and an Audio Return Channel. 3D video is the next big thing in home entertainment, with movie, game, and broadcast content on the increase and 3D-compatible TVs coming to market. The TX-NR5008 also offers the convenience of an Audio Return Channel via HDMI. Audio content received directly by your HDTV’s tuner can be sent "upstream" to your A/V receiver, without the need for a separate S/PDIF audio cable.
PC Audio and Internet Radio with DLNA 1.5 and Windows 7 Compatibility
As one of Onkyo's new breed of receivers that can link directly to the Internet or to your home PC via a local network, the TX-NR5008 takes streaming audio and Internet Radio to a whole new level. MP3, WMA, WMA Lossless, FLAC, WAV, Ogg Vorbis, AAC, and LPCM audio files--whether on your PC or from the internet--can now be played back through your main system with unprecedented power and fidelity. The TX-NR5008 brings to life a huge array of Internet Radio channels from Pandora, SIRIUS Internet Radio, vTuner, and more*. As well as being compatible with earlier platforms, the receiver is compatible with Microsoft's Windows 7 platform, which includes the DLNA 1.5-specified "Play To" media-streaming feature. Another benefit of having the TX-NR5008 connected to the Internet is that you can then easily update its firmware.

THX Ultra2 Plus Certified
The ultimate benchmark for home audio performance, THX Ultra2 Plus is specified for rooms where the screen-to-seat viewing distance is more than 12 feet and the room volume is 3,000 cubic feet or greater. To achieve THX Ultra2 Plus certification, the TX-NR5008 must meet the world's most demanding standards for home theater audio quality and performance, and must play at reference volume levels with minimal distortion.
Advanced Video Processing and 1080p Upscaling with HQV Reon-VX
HQV Reon-VX is the most sophisticated video-processing chip available for home theater. It provides the ultimate support for 1080p scaling; for filtering of jaggies and artifacts; and for the reduction of random, "mosquito", and block (codec) noise. HQV Reon-VX also enables color region enhancement and the rendering of more than one billion colors.

VLSC (Vector Linear Shaping Circuitry)
Onkyo's VLSC employs a unique digital-to-analog conversion circuit to mitigate the effects of signal noise. Data is converted between discrete sampling points, which are then joined with analog vectors in real-time to produce a continuous output wave form. The result--a noiseless, smooth analog signal based on the digital source.
Harnessing Power for Audio Performance
Onkyo's H.C.P.S. (High Current Power Supply) concept is based around power transformers with the capability to respond to the wide dynamics of home theater. In the case of the TX-NR5008, a massive toroidal transformer improves power efficiency and radiates very little noise into the surrounding circuitry, while two separate transformers cater specifically to audio and video processing. You’ll also find capacitors (operating at up to 22,000 microfarads) that store the charge necessary to support an effective power supply, along with large new custom-designed transistors to drive high currents.

Customized Audio via Audyssey and Dolby Technologies
The TX-NR5008 is equipped with MultEQ XT32, Audyssey's most powerful room-correction technology. MultEQ XT32 gathers frequency and time-domain measurements from up to 8 positions in the listening area, to help create a clear, well-balanced, and natural sound. Two other Audyssey technologies, Dynamic EQ and Dynamic Volume, work to optimize frequency response and dynamic range at all volume levels. In a similar vein, Dolby Volume performs independent loudness adjustments to different frequencies and channels to produce a listening experience that includes all the dynamics of the original mix at whatever volume you choose. It also offers the option of maintaining playback volume at the same user-chosen level across all input sources.
