Each receiver is capable of accommodating single-cable pure-digital audio and video transfer from HDMI sources, including 1080p and Deep-Color capability.
Two of the new models, the Onkyo TX-SR875 and TX-NR905, are the first home cinema receiver models to include Silicon Optix’s acclaimed Reon-VX HQV video processing – IC chip-based technology which provides the receivers with state-of-the-art video scaling and deinterlacing capabilities, including upscaling of all video sources to 1080p for output over the HDMI connection. Additionally, all video sources are upconverted to HD output via the units’ component video outputs to accommodate video displays lacking an HDMI input. And for simplified setup, all of the models incorporate Audyssey Multi-EQ room acoustics correction, which uses an included microphone to detect and configure speakers in the room..
