The new trio will include a nine-channel flagship, the TX-NR5010 networked AV receiver.
The batch, to be released in August, demonstrates Onkyo’s commitment to keeping pace with dynamic and evolving technology. In addition to the TX-NR5010 Network AAV receiver, the crop will include a more affordable nine-channel alternative, the TX-NR3010 Network AAV receiver, and a high-power seven-channel model, the TX-NR1010 Network AAV receiver.
Each includes THX Ultra2 Plus certification, Audyssey MultEQ XT32 room equalization, multi-channel upmixing from DTS Neo:X, Audyssey DSX, and Dolby Pro Logic Ilz, Cisco Linksys’ SimpleTap router for better connectivity and control and Zone2 HDMI connectivity.
There’s also Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio, access to audio streaming services such as Spotify Premium, and connectivity for smartphones, tablets, and PC via DLNA or Bluetooth. Multi-room operation is enhanced with extra HDMI inputs supporting 3D video. All three models feature Onkyo’s dual core video engine.
Linking with an iPhone, iPod or flash memory device, all the models include two USB ports in the front and rear to accommodate the UWF-1 wireless LAN adapter and UBT-1 Bluetooth USB adapter (sold separately).
The flagship TX-NR5010 also includes gold-plated audio terminals and speaker posts, an anti-resonance aluminium top and side panels, and a massive toroidal transformer supported by two discrete transformers for audio and video processing.
The receivers will be priced as follows; TX-NR1010 £2,000, TX-NR3010 £2,500, and TX-NR5010 £3,000.
