This internet connectivity has the added benefit of making firmware updates simpler than ever.

UWF-1 Wireless LAN adaptor

Onkyo's UWF-1 Wireless LAN adaptor removes unwanted cables.

Crisp and Clean 1080p Upscaling... and Ready for Next Generation Displays, NOW! 

Onkyo's A/V receiver provides the finest, most beautiful and pristine 1080p upscaling you can find, thanks to the Marvell Qdeo™ video-processing chip that erases video noise and artifacts such as jaggies and feathering. The result: astoundingly crisp video. Played back on a compatible widescreen display, your Blu-ray Discs and standard DVDs will look AMAZING: more detailed and cinematic than ever. While deftly handling the most current high-def display formats, Onkyo's also the first in the world to support the coming full 4K upscaling (3840 x 2160) of standard video sources such as 480i/p, 720p, and 1080i/p. Interlaced-to-progressive conversion and scaling are performed by a high-quality Marvell Qdeo video-processing chip.

3D and ARC

All Onkyo A/V receivers support the latest in 3D technology. Play 3D movies, games, and broadcast content in cinematic quality in your own home and be amazed by the realistic quality. The HDMI® inputs let you connect multiple high-def sources, such as a Blu-ray player, a gaming console, and a cable/satellite tuner. The HDMI output, on the other hand, lets you send a pristine signal to a compatible high-resolution display. Audio Return Channel allows audio content received directly by your HDTV’s tuner to be sent “upstream” via HDMI to your A/V receiver, without the need for a separate S/PDIF audio cable.

A Suite of Audyssey Technologies

Audyssey MultEQ XT is an advanced room-correction technology with high-resolution filters for satellite speakers and subwoofers. MultEQ XT gathers frequency and time-domain measurements from up to eight positions in the listening area, to deliver a clear, well-balanced, and natural sound.

Audyssey Dynamic EQ maintains a consistent bass response, tonal balance, and surround-sound effect at different volume levels, so you can enjoy the natural dynamics of your content regardless of the volume.

Audyssey Dynamic Volume automatically compensates for volume fluctuations in different audio content (for example, during commercial breaks) while optimizing the dynamic range. 
 

Dolby® Volume performs independent loudness adjustments to different frequencies and channels to produce a listening experience that includes all the dynamics of the original mix at whatever volume you choose. It also offers the option of maintaining playback volume at the same user-chosen level across all input sources. 

Dolby® Pro Logic® IIz can reconfigure the surround back channels to deliver “front height” channels. These channels carry ambient, non-directional audio that adds a new vertical dimension to your movies and games. Audyssey DSX provides a similar front-height speaker option that likewise works to create a more enveloping home theater experience.

Change Your Receiver's Settings Seamlessly

Thanks to Onkyo's overlaid graphical on-screen display (OSD), set-up menus appear on top of the video image you're watching, so you don't have to switch to a blank screen background. Easily navigate intuitive menus to maximize all of the features and benefits of your Onkyo A/V receiver. The OSD and Graphical User Interface (GUI) both operate over HDMI, making excellent use of that versatile interface.

Extra Connectivity Options

Use PC-IN to easily connect your notebook or mediacenter PC to your Onkyo AV receiver, and watch your movie files on your flatscreen TV. You can now easily watch internet videos, PC-stored movies and pictures on your TV. (Audio connectivity may vary depending on your computer hardware, but Onkyo A/V receivers support a wide range of different interfaces.)

Phono Input- Those who have retained a love for vinyl, we've got you covered. We respect this most noble of devotions. We still include the Phono Input that allows you to use your turn table to spin those albums and hear them with pristine Onkyo sound Quality. Because, after all, it's all about Sound.

I hesitate to write this review because I like Onkyo - I bought this receiver (actually two of them - see below) to replace other Onkyo receivers. However, I wish I had listened to some of the other reviewers on here because this turned into a real headache for me. If you read through the reviews here and on other sites, you will see tales of units having to be returned because of video and other issues. I had my first unit for just over 30 days - just outside the Amazon return period - when it failed with exactly the same problem that is described by another reviewer here. First, the HDMI main output failed, so I switched to the HDMI sub output (which, by the way, isn't a long term solution for a variety of reasons), and then shortly thereafter the sub output failed too.

I had ordered a second unit by that time to use in another room and, guess what... I put it into the system and shortly thereafter its HDMI failed too. I'm not going to bore you with the blow by blow of what happened next, but the short story is that I was told, after having the first unit in the shop for almost a month, that the part that was needed to fix the first receiver was backordered for an additional 60+ days. Although in the end Onkyo did authorize the entire HDMI board to be replaced, getting this done took many phone calls and lots of time, and left me without a receiver for 6+ weeks. I simply sent the second one back.

I normally ignore reviews such as this one under the theory that if a company manufactures enough products, some of them will invariably break, and I don't hold the company responsible for these few inevitable defects. However, out of the currently 7 or so reviews that have been posted for this unit on Amazon, it seems that 5 units have not worked in one way or another.

In years past, many Onkyo owners (myself included) tended to migrate to either the value-curve melting entry-level 6-series or the full chassis muscle of the 8 series and up. The 7 series has long been an "in-between" model in Onkyo's lineup. It was omitted in 2006 altogether and seems to be an easy step to overlook as prices naturally descend above and below it. To this extent, the 70x was the proverbial Jan Brady - not quite the brawny muscle of the 80x or the entry-level, high bang for your buck 60x.

Networking, THX certificiation, and quality video processing have all tricked down the lineup even further this year, making model differentiation for the 709 more difficult. That said, the 709 presents a big leap over the 609 in respects of the version of Audyssey auto room callibration (2EQ vs MultiEQ XT); multichannel pre-outs for the connection of a separate amplifier; dual HDMI outs for video toggling between two displays; the historical inclusion of a learning feature in the remote; and a somewhat ridiculous 8 HDMI inputs. These are all (and in particular MultiEQ XT) considerable reasons to opt for the 709 over the 609. The advent of HDMI and rapdily falling prices have led to a scarcity of inputs on most modern mid-range receivers, notably with Denon. The onkyo tx nr709 and upcoming pioneer vsx-1121 probably offer some of the best connectivity in this space.

I have owned numerous Onkyo products in the past and am well aware of their quirks (massive heat, moody HDMI boards, etc), but have always been impressed by their raw power, strong featureset, and intuitive setup menus. Onkyo appears to have addressed a number of its predecessors' shortcomings in the 709. Gone is the easy-bake oven operating temperatures of past models.

It's hard to keep reviews like this short, because there are SO many features on this thing. I'll go over some of the things that stand out to me.

The internet radio is one of our favorite functions, you can even browse THOUSANDS of internet radio stations and it's seemlessly intergrated in the receiver. We began listening to a radio station in Hong Kong! Pandora sounds great, so does last FM. The music title/artist displays on the receiver's screen while the song is playing... WOW.

DLNA intergration: Ive used the unit to stream music to the receiver and it works well. My windows 7 PC is setup with Tversity (google it) and it found all my files right away. There is a slight lag browsing the files, but the sound is good regardless.

Sound.. well, Im not going to say it sounds better than (insert receiver name in here), HOWEVER, it is up to par...no distortion, nothing that makes it sound bad, only goodness from this thing. I don't claim to have golden ears, there are just TOO many variable in sound (mostly it depends on the SPEAKERS) you have.

Audyssey's MULTIEQ XT is the BIGGEST reason why I chose this receiver, for the price/performance... it cannot beat! If it's one thing that affects your sound quality, is the quality of your analyzer (Audyssey, yamaha's YPAO, pioneer's MCACC). If you look at the audio/video forums, this is a feature that is high sought after. This one is better than the Audyssey 2EQ system because it has better crossover control. Here is the quote from audyssey's website:

"MultEQ has twice the resolution of 2EQ (that was designed to fit within the constraints of smaller processing chips). So, MultEQ will do a much better job correcting the low frequencies of the main speakers.
