Onkyo have announced the launch of three new mid-range receivers. Compatible with new 3D TV technology, they don’t scrimp on specs, nor do they do too much damage to your wallet either.
With full FLAC playback support, the TX-NR1008, TX-NR808, and TX-NR708 receivers are fully compatible with DolbyTrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio HD codecs, stamped with the THX seal of approval.
While each receiver has seven HDMI 1.4a ports and 1080p upscaling features, the TX-NR1008 offers a crazy 9.2 channels compared to the TX-NR808 and TX-NR708’s still-impressive 7.2 channels.
There are plenty of extra function the receivers can carry out too. With an Ethernet port you can connect up to your home network through DLNA, and access services such as Napster, LastFM and vTuner. You’ll also get to see any artwork that accompanies your iTunes collection too. The receivers support FLAC Lossless, MP3, WMA, WMA Lossless, WAV, Ogg Vorbis, AAC, and LPCM file types.
The TX-NR808 and TX-NR708 are both out in June, priced at £1000 and £800 respectively. The TX-NR1008 will follow in July, marked at £1300.
