Onkyo Offers THX-Certified, 3D-Ready Receiver

C.I.S.: Charlotte NC's Choice For Home Theater Setup!The company’s new $599 TX-SR608 is a 7.2-channel THX-Select2 Plus certified model featuring HDMI 1.4.

Taking a cue from Pioneer’s recent announcement, Onkyo has just released the specifications of its 2010 entry-level A/V receiver line, all of which include support for HDMI v1.4 (which includes pass-through of 3D video). 

The flagship of the entry-level line and, if past models are an indication, likely to be one of the most popular AVRs on the market is Onkyo’s TSX-SR608 7.2 AVR.  Providing 100 watts per channel through an inverted Darlington output topology, along with Audyssey DSX, Dolby PLIIz, and THX Select2 certification, the SR608 offers several notable steps up over last year’s well received SR607. 

New video enhancements include an upgrade to Faroudja DCDi Cinema video processing, overlaid GUI for setup, and six HDMI inputs (including one front HDMI input). 

With an MSRP of $599, the TX-SR608 looks to offer a lot of bang for not a lot of bucks. Look for it on store shelves in April. 

Other models announced include the $299 TX-SR308 and $399 TX-SR508, 5.1 and 7.1 AVRs capable of decoding Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master audio, along with including Burr Brown DACs, overlaid GUI setup, and HDMI v1.4 video support. The SR308 and SR508 should be available this month.

A Year of Neat-O Installations
If you like controversy, 2009 was the year for you.

The custom electronics industry was ripe with scandal. There were lawsuits pitting industry bigwigs against one another, debates of integration companies’ ethics, and speculation that company owners are too old to be effective.

It might have been a difficult year, but it certainly wasn’t boring.

Below are our stories looking back on 2009. Enjoy. Here’s to a better 2010.
