New Onkyo TX receivers
Having only recently announced another collection, Onkyo has revealed details on three more TX-series receivers. These begin with the NR1007, which is capable of 135W of output across each of 9.2 channels. The unit handles decoding of Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio, and additionally supports formats such as Dolby Pro Logic IIz and Audyssey DSX. It is compliant with DLNA 1.5 and THX Ultra2 Plus standards.
Present are six HDMI inputs, matched by two HDMI outputs. Video is upconverted to 1080p using Faroudja DCDi Cinema, and the receiver can also directly stream audio from Pandora, Rhapsody, vTuner or Sirius Internet Radio. It should be available in September for approximately $1,600.
The NR3007 incorporates all the features of the 1007, but boosts output to 140W, while adding a seventh HDMI input on the front panel; joining it is a single USB port. Processing is enhanced through Dolby Volume audio technology, and HQV Reon-VX upconversion. The system will ship alongside the 1007 in September at a cost of $2,100.
The NR5007 makes the jump to 145W, while sporting eight HDMI inputs, split between one on the front and seven in back. Two USB ports are included, the second being located at rear. The receiver is due in September with a premium of $2,700.
