The NR809 is the latest addition to Onkyo's receiver lineup. It's designed as a replacement to last year's NR808 and right out of the gate it makes some improvements.  You'll find two USB ports - one front and one rear facing - as well as Zone 2/3 preouts and ISF video calibration. The NR809 also features a pair of video processors . 

The HQV Vida processor takes care of upscaling standard definition content, cleaning up compressed video and 12-bit color processing.  Marvell Qdeo technology, meanwhile, takes your HD video and scales it on up to 4K. Onkyo's 809 is no slouch in the audio department either.  It packs Audyssey MultEQ XT room correction, Dynamic Volume and a variety of other features to get you the best audio possible.   It also offers Dolby ProLogic IIz if you're looking for height channels.

The TX-NR809 is capable of streaming audio from your PC or from internet sources like Napster, Pandora and Rhapsody.  It's also the first receiver from Onkyo this year to offer a bidirectional, preprogrammed, customizable RI control. You can pick up the NR809 when it reaches authorized retailers later this month at a price of $1,099.
