Onkyo home theater amps

Home theater manufacturer Onkyo has recently announced the release of two new high-end home theater receivers, with the TX-NR807 and TX-SR707. Both are 7.2-channel systems, though the TX-NR807 has the ability to stream audio from Internet-based services such as Pandora, Rhapsody, Sirius and Internet radio from vTuner's database. Music on networked PCs and hard drives can also be played back as the receiver is DLNA 1.5-compliant. It supports MP3, WMA, FLAC, OGG Vorbis and AAC file playback from PCs.

Otherwise, it has six HDMI inputs, upconverts DVDs to 1080p, and can deliver 135W per channel. It can also decode Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio, and is THX-Select2 Plus as well as Dolby Pro Logic IIz certified. Up to 9.1 channels can be supported thanks to Audyssey DSX processing.

In comparison, the TX-SR707 lacks the networking compatibility, and is less powerful, at 100W per channel.

Both are currently available, with the TX-NR707 priced at $899, while the TX-NR807 costs $1,099. [via Crave]
