Onkyo Debuts TX-NR807 Mid-Price THX Select2 Plus AV Receiver Streaming Internet Radio Capabilities, DLNA 1.5 Networking

Onkyo has introduced and begun shipping the TX-NR807; its first
network-capable home theater receiver configured for Pandora, Rhapsody,
and Sirius' streaming Internet radio services. The new Onkyo TX-NR807 is
also capable of playing computer music files from networked PCs, is
fully compatible with the Digital Living Network Alliance's DLNA 1.5
consumer electronics interoperability specification, and sells for less
than half the price of the company's previous network-capable model.

With THX Select2 Plus certification and state-of-the-art processing from
Dolby, DTS, Audyssey and Faroudja, the Onkyo TX-NR807 offers high
definition audio and video performance. The TX-NR807 and non-networking
TX-SR707 model, also introduced today, are Onkyo's first receivers to
offer Audyssey DSX soundstage extension processing in addition to Dolby
Pro Logic IIz height-capabilities.

The Onkyo TX-NR807 connects directly to the Internet or a home network
via a rear-panel Ethernet port. The receiver's on-screen user interface
allows users direct access to Pandora, Rhapsody, Sirius Internet Radio,
and vTuner streaming radio services, or to access MP3, WMA, FLAC,
Lossless, Ogg Vorbis, and AAC files from any computer or storage device
on the network. The receiver is Windows 7 compatible, and its Ethernet
port can also be used for firmware updates.

As a premium home theater receiver, the TX-NR807 is also the perfect
match for high definition video displays with Blu-ray players and other
HD sources. It has six HDMI 1.3a inputs, 1080p video upscaling of all
sources using the powerful Faroudja DCDi Cinema processor chip. On the
audio side it has a full suite of surround processing, including
lossless Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio.

The TX-NR807 has seven 135-watts-per-channel Onkyo WRAT (Wide Range
Amplifier Technology) amplifier sections for high output and low
distortion, offering a dynamic power rating of 300 watts into 3 ohms. It
has an extensive array of analog and digital inputs and outputs,
including an MM/MC phono input. Its multiroom audio capabilities are
similarly extensive with Powered Zone 2 and 3 capabilities, multiple DC
triggers, bidirectional RS-232, and Onkyo's exclusive Universal Port for
connection of an optional iPod Dock and HD Radio tuner.

The Onkyo TX-NR807 is now shipping to Onkyo dealers and will have a
manufacturer's suggested retail price of $1,099.
