Onkyo TX-NR809 Wireless Network 7.2 A/V Receiver

 

The Onkyo TX-NR809 network receiver was announced in May of this year, and right away, it made me salivate. Having both reviewed and owned several Onkyo receiver models over the last few years, I have come to expect an excellent product that is both...

Onkyo TX-NR809 7.2 Channel THX Network Receiver First Look

Onkyo TX-NR809 Receiver Review

 

So many ways to customize this receiver to our exact needs!, So many ports!, Outstanding audio and video hardware onboard, So many digital music options, online and locally, Broad complement of Audyssey and Dolby enhancements, including configurable...

No AirPlay, Twitchy iPod/iPhone connectivity, Deep menus and sub-menus can sometimes be non-intuitive

Calling these my "final" musings on the subject would be somewhat disingenuous, as I plan to bite the bullet and buy my very own TX-NR809 receiver and make it a permanent, central part of my home theater rig. Based on what I've seen/heard it do, and...
