Onkyo BD-SP809 review

 

Top selling AV receiver brand Onkyo puts the case for feature-light Blu-ray players

Low noise ; High quality HD ; Commendable DVD upscaling ; 3D-ready

Poor streaming options ; Ugly user interface ; No IPTV portal ; No Super Audio CD/ DVD-Audio compatibility

You need to have a pretty compelling proposition if you want to buck the trend of releasing ever cheaper Blu-ray players.

Onkyo BD-SP809 review

 

Onkyo has carved itself a formidable niche in the lower-to-midrange AV receiver market by following a Tesco-like philosophy: piling features high and keeping prices low. But that's not the route it's taken with disc players. Here the company has played...

AV performance; twin HDMI outputs; build quality and design

No SACD or DVD-A playback; mismatched remote control; limited media streaming

Onkyo BD-SP809 review

 

Top-quality results from top-of-the-range Blu-ray deck

First-rate Blu-ray picture ; good upscaling ; superb, muscular movie sound ; decent stereo

Lacks streaming support ; no multichannel analogue outs

For cinema enthusiasts this is a fine choice. It's narrower of focus than some, though

Onkyo BD-SP809

 

Onkyo's flagship Blu-ray deck delivers knockout performance but lacks a couple of key features

Excellent build quality, Crisp, polished pictures, Some nifty features, THX & DLNA certified

Plasticky remote, Some streaming issues, No Wi-Fi or hi-res audio support, Slow loading of Java-heavy discs

Onkyo BD-SP809 Review

 

Reviews at AV MAX are incomplete without an Onkyo addition. They've been sending us their receivers and speakers for as long as we can remember, all the while designing budget-friendly Blu-ray players. Since we are in the times of 3D-everything, they...

Besides the common connectivity options, the one (or rather two) interesting options are the two HDMI outputs. More and more players seem to be coming with this because this is a time where people are switching over to Blu-rays but haven’t quite...

Onkyo Audio BD-SP809 THX Blu-ray Player Preview

 

The Onkyo BD-SP809 sports THX certification, 3D support, dual HDMI outputs, DLNA 1.5, Netflix 3.0, Blockbuster, Film Fresh, and VUDU streaming, Marvell Qdeo upscaling, and 297 MHz/12-Bit DACs.

There a few things to consider before choosing the Onkyo BD-809 Blu-ray Player. If you are interested in all the latest streaming, top notch video upconversion and DACs, and dual HDMI outputs, this THX certified Blu-ray player might be for you. But if...

Onkyo BD-SP809 Blu-ray Player

 

The Onkyo BD-SP809 is a premium Blu-ray player with solid build and good performance but a fairly limited new media feature set.

Excellent build quality ; Very good automatic scan conversion ; Dual HDMI output allows 3D use with older AV receiver ; Region Free DVD

Limited audio streaming formats ; Fairly expensive

This player is the kind that goes best with a high quality system consisting largely of other Onkyo products. You're paying premium price, not so much for a large feature set, as for quality construction and very good quality video output
