Onkyo have today announced the release of two brand-new networked receivers. Featuring THX Ultra2 Plus certification, the TX-NR5008 and TX-NR3008 will also be fully compatible with the incoming wave of 3D capable gear.
Both receivers feature eight HDMI v1.4a inputs, 1080p upscaling and ISF video calibration, as well as networked playback of FLAC, MP3, WAV, Ogg Vorbis, WMA, WMA Lossless, AAC, and LPCM files thanks to a rear-sided Ethernet port.
Both also have dual HDMI outputs for connecting up two HD displays, as well as the ability to set up multi-room set ups for stereo sources around the house.
Lossless Blu-ray codecs Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio are supported, as well as having 9.2 audio channels boosted by Audyssey DSX or Dolby Pro Logic Iiz.
The TX-NR3008 features a front sided USB port, while the TX-NR5008 has them front and back as well as a torodial transformer and 22,000uF power capacitors.
Out in August, the TX-NR3008 and TX-NR5008 will cost £1,700 and £2,400 respectively.
