Onkyo has introduced the world’s first home theater receiver to feature DTS Neo:X multidimensional audio technology. Now that sounds like it will shoot you through the next dimension, but it just means that you get a highly realistic sound experience. This technology allows you to use up to nine speakers, creating a lifelike 3-D soundscape.
The TX-NR1009 is a THX Select2 Plus-certified home theater receiver that also features several audio and video upgrades like Marvell Qdeo and IDT’s HQV Vida video upscaling and processing circuits, and Audyssey’s MultEQ XT audio room correction. The Onkyo TX-NR1009 will be available this month for $1,399.
