Onkyo Outs New High End Receivers
To help justify the hefty investment, both receivers bring a ton of features to the table, including support for network audio streaming, various multi-room setups, iPhone/iPod playback over USB, and fully immersive 3D compatibility, Onkyo says.
The similarities don't end there. Both receivers feature dual HDMI outputs so you can hook up two high-definition displays simultaneously, and both come with advanced ISF video calibration to make fine-tune adjustments to each source. Other features include 9.2-channel audio, Audyssey DSX, Dolby Pro Logic IIz, Dolby TrueHD, DTS-HD Master Audio, gold-plated inputs and PLL jitter-cleaning circuit technology.
The TX-NR3008 comes with a front-side USB port, while the TX-NR5008 has USB ports front and rear, Onkyo says. See product pages below for a full list of features.
