The TX-NR509, meanwhile, offers an appealing choice to users who do not require the 4K video upscaling feature or the expanded surround sound of Audyssey DSX and Dolby Pro Logic IIz. It offers 4 HMDI inputs and the same range of networking and superb audio processing as its higher sibling.
Rounding out this release is the most affordable model of all, the TX-SR309. This 5.1-channel A/V receiver is targeted at users who do not require the networking, Zone 2, or Audyssey equalization features, but who still seek a modern and budget-friendly home theater centerpiece. It features three HDMI inputs and high-quality TI Burr-Brown audio DACs, along with Onkyo’s proprietary advanced music optimizer and gaming audio modes.
With this current release, Onkyo aims to further cement its position as a trusted provider of high-quality, yet affordable, home theater receivers.
The Onkyo TX-NR609 will be available with a manufacture's suggested retail price of $599; TX-NR509 at $399; and TX-SR309 at $299. The Onkyo UWF-1 wireless adapter will cost $39. All of these products will be available at retail in early April.
