Quality Home Theater Is Now Within Your Reach

Targeting the sweet spot where affordability meets superb functionality, the TX-NR609 looks set to be another Onkyo classic. This THX® Select2 Plus™ Certified A/V receiver handles content from all your favorite disc-based media, as well as networked audio content from the internet, iPod/iPhone, and PC. Six HDMI® inputs—including one on the front panel—provide support for 3D video and ultra-high resolution 4K video upscaling via Qdeo™ technology. HDMI also carries master-quality audio formats from Dolby and DTS, as well as the expanded surround sound of Audyssey DSX™ and Dolby® Pro Logic® IIz. Three-stage inverted Darlington circuitry and Onkyo’s proprietary WRAT ensure a clean and compelling amplifier performance. And when audio signals are output, the 7.2-channel configuration includes twin subwoofer pre-outs for added bass impact. Meanwhile, a user-friendly on-screen display and GUI make it easy to adjust settings and navigate your content. All this and more makes the TX-NR609 an irresistible choice for the value-seeking home theater fan.

THX® Select2 Plus™ Certified

THX Select2 Plus certification is specified for rooms where the screen-to-seat viewing distance is 3 to 4 meters and the room volume is around 56 cubic meters. To achieve THX Select2 Plus certification, the TX-NR609 had to meet the world’s most demanding standards for home theater audio quality and performance, and play at reference volume levels with minimal distortion.

Network Capability Delivers Internet Radio and Network Audio Streaming

Linking directly to the internet or to your home PC via a local network, the TX-NR609 takes streaming audio and internet radio to a whole new level. MP3, WMA, WMA Lossless, FLAC, WAV, Ogg Vorbis, AAC, and LPCM audio files can now be played back through your main system with unprecedented power and fidelity. The TX-NR609 also brings to life a huge array of internet radio channels through vTuner. As well as being compatible with earlier platforms, the receiver is compatible with Microsoft’s Windows® 7 platform, which includes the DLNA 1.5-specified “Play To” media-streaming feature. TheTX-NR609’s internet connectivity has the added benefit of making firmware updates simpler than ever.

Three-Stage Inverted Darlington Circuitry

Three-stage inverted Darlington circuitry is a core Onkyo technology that brings greater efficiency to the TX-NR609. It incorporates a low-NFB design to remove distortion and enhance the natural character of audio signals. Sensitive to oscillations, this circuitry requires very advanced control technology in order to be incorporated into the amplifier.
