With its bountiful array of connections, the TX-NR709 A/V receiver handles just about any playback device you care to hook up. Eight HDMI® inputs give you plenty of scope for high-definition sources, while two HDMI outputs double your display options. HDMI supports pristine lossless audio from Dolby and DTS and video upscaling to stunning 4K resolution via Qdeo™ technology. Connectivity is further enhanced by a front-panel USB port for digital link-up of iPod/iPhone, and a wide range of analog and digital inputs—including S-Video and 7.1 analog multichannel inputs—for all your legacy components. The network-capable TX-NR709 also brings PC audio and internet radio to your living room, where Audyssey MultEQ® XT calibrates the soundfield to match the room’s unique dimensions. Onkyo’s graphical OSD and navigation GUI make it easy to browse your content and adjust settings on the fly. Finally, bi-amping capability, 7.2 multichannel pre-outs, and a dedicated phono input provide further flexibility for the demanding audiophile and help propel the TX-NR709 to the head of its class.
