  • The TX-8555B: Forget about over-hyped processing technologies. If your receiver lacks the fundamental amplifier design from the power supply through to the output stage, everything else is superfluous. The TX-8555 stereo receiver is built with this in mind. Incorporating Onkyo's proprietary Wide Range Amplifier Design (WRAT) with an isolated power transformer and discrete output stage, the TX-8555 is focused on maintaining the purity of music, radio and video sources.
  • The TX-8255B: While new technologies come and go, the fundamentals of competent receiver design remain constant. You can never underestimate the importance of the power supply, and all other audio processing functions cannot rule over good solid amplification. This is the direction Onkyo has taken with the TX-8255 stereo receiver. Built for those people who value the benefits of time-proven amplification design, the TX-8255 takes core Onkyo technology--and an array of features you'll actually use--to bring you a no-nonsense stereo receiver that will deliver audio and radio signals with agreeable quality.

    Simply amazing! I must say, this has to be one of the most sophisticated pieces of electronic equipment that I've ever owned. I don't even know where to begin. Did I mention this thing is amazing?

    I was running a Bose Lifestyle 48 prior to this, but when I finally decided to make the most of HDMI connections, I shelved the Bose and stepped up to the ONKYO. What a breath of fresh air! There are so many features of the TX-NR906 that I like. Starting with the remote control--I'm sure it's common practice nowadays for receiver remotes to be fairly smart, but this guy is really bright. I've managed to teach it all the commands from my three main remote controls (TV, BD & CD Players), more or less, just by pointing the controllers at each other and clicking. I'm referring to commands that aren't usually part of a universal controller's arsenal. The large number of connection choices are really coming in handy, as well. I'm maxing out the HDMI inputs and have one of the two outputs connected to my TV. There's a ton of digital audio options as well. The front panel offers a number of connection choices, including a USB port for playing MP3s.

    Another aspect of this receiver that I really like is the fact that this system not only sounds phenomenal when playing movies, but sounds equally as incredible playing CDs or listening to music from my PC. With previous systems it always seemed like one was better than the other, but with the TX-NR906, I really feels like I'm getting audiophile quality sound from all components. Oh yeah, did I mention? HD FM radio sounds phenomenal! I don't have XM or Sirius yet, but that's on the short list of near term upgrades. There's an antennae connection for both.

    This receiver is the hub of my home theater.

    Color Name: Black
    This monster at some 55lbs is the center of my entertainment. I have a 52 120Hz Samsung HDTV, Xbox, Playstation 3, Nintendo Wii, Onkyo DVD player, HP Desktop all connected via HDMI ports being Onkyo at present is the only one to offer so many HDMI connections on one unit.

    I am using 7.1 channel speakers which combined with this system put out such incredible clear sound and power driven whether the TV, the gaming systems, radio, DVD, windows Media Center, Apple itunes or Netflix via the xbox 360. Everything runs like a charm through this unit and all on one remote. However, that is another review for Logitech Harmony One Advanced Remote.

    As for features, they are almost endless at least from my experience. I have had nice equipment in the past but this is in mid to upper lines of fine home audio and far surpasses all of the others I had researched in this class. I have had Onkyo in the past so I was at least familiar with their products, good service and online documentation as well as the big booklets provided, but if I had questions they were easy to reach and very knowledgable. I would recommend this item to anyone who does allot of movie, music, games for a complete entertainment control center. It is costly for most but it is something that used with care and cared for will last many, many years.

    Like with any electronics always do allot of research from online reviews via retailers, pro reviews and of course if you find this item in a store see it, test it and ask loads of questions to make sure it's right for you and your needs or what you truly want in high end home entertainment power hub. See the endless list of superb features below.

    Color Name: Black Verified Purchase
    * IN CAPITAL LETTER MY REVISIONS AFTER 3 MONTHS OF TUNNING.
    Bought it to replace the great and classic Onkyo TX-DS989 after 8 years of good services. After these 8 years I became a semi audiophile appreciating hi def audio sources such as DVD Audio,SACD and audiophile CDs. I wanted another DS989 with all the new modern features brought by HDMI such as 1080p, DTS-HD, Master audio etc. I also wanted something that could make my hi def audio sources sound better. The new Onkyo TX-NR906 looked like the perfect promise : the best in video processing with promising pure audio and bi-amp/biwire fetures for stereo or hi def audio lovers. So I decided to give it a shot. I am writing this review after a couple of weeks of acquiring the product. Since it is so packed with features I might certainly add comments in the near future.

    A) Pros and positive surprises:

    1. Video processing seems really great, full control of all video sources. Isf seems a nice surprise. You can relly on your receiver to adjust any video properties possible.
    2. Audissey processing works pretty well for MOVIES only. Don't reccomend it for Stereo. DynamicEQ allows you to listen to movie sound effects even at low volumes. Great feature for my case who is always alone, locked in my home theater late at night trying not to bother wife and kids
    3. Sound effects for movies are great. Great sound pressure makes movies come to live. Same movies have a different experience driven by the good dynamics and good chanel separation and effects from 7.1.
    4. Internet radio was a nice surprise. Works well. Reasonable good sound quality from some of the internet stations. Allows us to appreciate the most crazy transmitions from all over the world
    5.
