Onkyo has revealed the full-featured 9.2-channel TX-NR929 Network A/V Receiver, providing nine channel entertainment to the company's mid-range lineup. The new model is positioned between the 7.2-channel TX-NR828 Network A/V Receiver also seeing release today, and the company's existing audiophile-grade flagship products. Onkyo's TX-NR929 and TX-NR828 are both THX Select2 Plus certified.

The TX-NR929 Network A/V Receiver boasts 11.2 multichannel pre-outs and DTS Neo:X upmixing for surround-sound playback through up to 11 channels. If preferred, the user can assign four of the nine available channels to drive audio in Zone 2 and Zone 3 simultaneously. The receiver also has an extra HDMI output for sending high-def video to a second display. Multi-zone entertainment is managed via smartphone app, which encompasses the selection of online streaming services, internet radio channels, and network audio files.

Pre-processing on the TX-NR929 incorporates three 192kHz/24-bit TI Burr-Brown DACs with one stereo DAC per front channel in Differential DAC Mode. Amplification comes from Onkyo's Wide Range Amp Technology and discrete Three-Stage Inverted Darlington Circuitry, preserving high-fidelity musical sound even at high volumes.

Delivering a similarly high power output, but through 7.2 channels, is the TX-NR828 Network A/V Receiver. Along with 4K passthrough and upscaling, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi technology, and THX certification, the receiver has Audyssey DSX upmixing and Audyssey MultEQ room acoustic equalization. A full complement of analog and digital A/V connections-including 7.2 multichannel pre-outs and a phono stage-provide the flexibility for user customization. The receiver offers both Powered Zone 2 outputs and Zone 2/3 line-outs to deliver network audio sources to an existing hi-fi system in third zone.

Like its larger sibling, this A/V receiver is very simple to set up and use, with an icon-based overlaid graphical on-screen display and InstaPrevue video switching technology. Hybrid Standby, preserves a network connection and HDMI passthrough while the home theater sleeps, allowing the use of TV and media players with the receiver powered down.

The TX-NR828 and TX-NR929 network receivers will have suggested retail prices of $1,099 and $1,399 respectively. The TX-NR828 will be available at retail in June while the TX-NR929 will be available in July.
