Onkyo announced a trio of new receivers today that are capable handling just about anything you can throw at them.  
3D video is a snap thanks to seven HDMI 1.4 inputs, and Onyo's new receivers are compatible with all mandatory 3D formats.  Upscaling is smooth too, thanks to Faroudja DCDi Cinema.

Streaming is no problem either.  If you've got MP3, WMA or AAC files, you can simply attach the receiver to your home network with an Ethernet cable and you're ready to go.  Don't worry, lossless is covered too.  Whether you prefer WAV, WMA Lossless or FLAC, the new Onkyo receivers can handle it.

Multi-room flexibility is where the three receivers start to differ.  The 7.2 channel TX-NR708 offers both a powered Zone 2 and a Zone 2 line out.  The NR808 – also 7.2 channel – has a powered Zone 2 along with pre-outs for both Zones 2 and 3.  The 9.2 channel TX-NR1008 offers powered stereo audio to Zone 2 and 3 while still maintaining 5.1 surround in the main room.

You'll be able to pick up the 708 and 808 in early July for $899 and $1,099 respectively.  The TX-NR1008, which also boasts ISF calibration controls and an extra 192 kHz/24-bit Burr Brown DAC, ships in late July at a price of $1,399.
