Onkyo TX-NR906 7.1-Channel Home Network Receiver

Introduction

Onkyo has broken new ground by introducing two receivers to be the first in the world with ISF video calibration. The TX-NR906 is the flagship of the Onkyo receiver line and the step up from the equally isf capable TX-SR876. Several features set the 906 apart from the 876. The 906 having more power supplies including a toroidal power transformer for the amplifier section. It adds THX post processing and network media features in the ability to stream internet radio and music from a PC or home media server. At $2,199.99 dollars the Onkyo is priced as a flagship product. However, as you read the review I hope you come to appreciate what a good value for money this product represents. It's a very complicated piece of equipment and it would take far too long to cover all it's options. Some of which have already been covered in other articles, features like Audyssey and THX processing. I'll be focusing more on the new features such as ISF calibration and on the audio and video performance of the TX-NR906.
