Onkyo announced the TX-NR509 entry-level, 5.1-channel A/V receiver which includes advanced networking capabilities and a 'Made for iPod/iPhone' USB interface. When used with a free new App from Onkyo, it can be remote controlled using an iPhone/iPod.

The network-capable home theater receiver supports streaming PC audio and Internet radio, and provide compatibility with Windows 7 and DLNA. The Internet connection greatly simplifies the process of providing future updates to the receiver's firmware. Audio files on your computer and streaming internet radio can both now be played through your main system, with fidelity far beyond what you're used to on a PC. This front-panel USB port also offers a direct digital connection for an iPod or iPhone, along with support for audio playback from USB mass-storage devices.

Other features include PLL jitter-cleaning circuitry to preserve signal clarity; lossless Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio decoding; an overlaid on-screen display for easy adjustment of settings; and a new front panel design.

When it comes to setting up the TX-NR509, Audyssey 2EQ works to adapt the soundstage to the unique dimensions of your room. On-the-fly adjustments to audio and video settings are simple, thanks to the user-friendly overlaid on-screen display. Additional system control is provided by Onkyo's Remote App, which lets you use your iPod/iPhone as a remote controller. The receiver's four advanced HDMI inputs handle stunning high-definition audio from Dolby and DTS, as well as dynamic new 3D video. Further connectivity highlights include a new front-panel USB port that offers a clean digital link for both iPod/iPhone and USB storage devices, and Zone 2 line-outs that let you send a stereo audio signal to a second room equipped with an amp and speakers.
