In just a few weeks, the newest line of Onkyo receivers, the TX ‘Double-0’ series, will be shipping.  Onkyo sought to add a diverse feature set to this A/V receiver line which includes, among other things, 9.2 channel processing.

All receivers in the line, including the TX-NR1007, TX-NR3007 and the TX-NR5007 feature nine amplifier channels and a pair of independent subwoofer outputs.  This allows for a great deal of flexibility, and users are able to configure the receiver in a variety of ways, from a full 9.2 channel arrangement, to a 5.1 set up with a fair amount of added power.

Filling out the feature set is a rear panel Ethernet port, allowing for streaming of Pandora, Rhapsody, Sirius Internet Radio.  These receivers are all DNLA 1.5 certified and are fully compatible with Windows 7.

Video processing in the higher end models, the TX-NR3007 and TX-NR5007, is handled by a HQV Reon-VX chipset.  They feature seven and eight HDMI inputs respectively, with six on the TX-NR1007, and all models feature dual parallel HDMI outputs.

The TX-NR5007 also benefits from higher quality 32-bit Burr Brown Digital Analog Converters, though all feature Burr Brown DACs.  A trio of TI Aureus DSP chips take care of processing on all three models, and all feature optimizations from THX and Audyssey.

The ‘Double-0’ line will be available in September at MSRPs of $1,599 for the TX-NR1007, $2,099 for the TX-NR3007 and $2,699 for the TX-NR5007.
