-ONKYO TXNR3008 HOME CINEMA RECEIVER
Once again upping the ante for high-end A/V receivers, Onkyo packs the Onkyo TX-NR3008 Network AV Receiver with an extremely generous selection of cutting-edge home cinema features. This 9.2-channel networking behemoth has the flexibility to handle the latest high-definition and surround formats from DTS, Dolby, and Audyssey, while also giving you the scope for powered audio in two extra rooms. Among the connectivity highlights are an analogue PC video input, a front-panel USB input, and eight new HDMI® 1.4a inputs providing compatibility with 3D video content. All video sources can be upscaled via HDMI and HQV Reon VX to breath-taking widescreen 1080p, with ISF calibration ensuring optimal video performance. PC-based audio and internet radio come into play too, thanks to DLNA 1.5-compatible network streaming. The key to the Onkyo TX-NR3008's dynamic home cinema performance is its high-end amplifier design: proprietary VLSC™ for all channels, a massive transformer, and two separate transformers for audio and video processing. So sit back, strap in, and prepare to be amazed.
The eight HDMI 1.4a inputs on the Onkyo TXNR 3008 let you simultaneously connect high-definition sources such as a Blu-ray player, a gaming console, 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-NR3008 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 you're A/V receiver, without the need for a separate S/PDIF audio cable.
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 OnkyoTX-NR3008 AV Receiver 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-NR3008 brings to life a huge array of internet radio channels from Last.fm, Napster, and vTuner*. As well as being compatible with earlier platforms, the receiver is compatible with Microsoft's new Windows 7 platform, which includes the DLNA 1.5-specified "Play To" media streaming feature. Another benefit of having the TX-NR3008 connected to the internet is that you can then easily update its firmware.
The ultimate benchmark for home audio performance, THX Ultra2 Plus is specified for rooms where the screen-to-seat viewing distance is more than 4 meters and the room volume is 85 cubic meters or greater. To achieve THX Ultra2 Plus certification, the Onkyo 3008 must meet the world's most demanding standards for home cinema audio quality and performance, and must play at reference volume levels with minimal distortion.
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 cinema. In the case of the TX-NR3008, a massive main transformer improves power efficiency and radiates very little noise into the surrounding circuitry, while two separate transformers cater specifically to audio and video processing. The Onkyo TX-NR3008 also employs large, custom-designed transistors to drive the high currents that today's home entertainment demands.
The TX-NR3008 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 deliver 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.
