Introduction to the Onkyo NR929 9.2 A/V Receiver

2013 is a milestone year for Onkyo and their partnership with the George Lucas founded THX Corporation. Onkyo has the distinction of having released the very first THX certified A/V Receiver in 1994, the TX-SV919THX. It has been a mutually beneficial relationship over the years as an established brand in Onkyo helped legitimize the technology while Onkyo benefited from the certified level of quality. The THX standards were originally developed to provide a reference for reproducing the movie theater audio experience in a home theater setting. Though the company is no longer owned by Lucas film, Ltd., the standards are still rigorous and Onkyo still produces receivers that meet THX certification. While the TX-NR5010 remains the company's flagship model, the TX-NR929 is Onkyo's most fully-featured receiver released in 2013, carrying the THX Select2 Plus variety. Having both owned and reviewed Onkyo receivers, I was greatly looking forward to putting this model through the paces.
