Onkyo Tx-nr809 Receiver..........

Recommended Posts

Does this mean PurpleRay is coming? :lol:

Presumably it does mean that 4K displays are coming. I can feel my credit card trembling in fear. :ninja:

I prefer the look over the previous Onkyo styling - still not as nice as some others.

Looking forward to seeing the equivalent prepro.

Noticed this 4k scaling in search of 4k displays a while ago and asked in the oppo 95 thread at avs whether the marvell qdeo chip in the oppo [same capability] will get this upscaling . The silence was deafening :rolleyes: Who knows how its been configured :unsure:

Qdeo video processing is currently offered in a family of video format converters from Marvell – the 88DE2710 [4]

and the 88DE2750 [5]. It has already been implemented in platforms with image sizes that range from QCIF to 4K

x 2K – this corresponds to a pixel count ranging from 5000 to 10M. This vast range highlights the unique adaptivity

of the technology

Qdeo has the capability of even higher rez's than 2k ;skys the limit [if thats hard to upscale :) ]

They have never been a great looking machine, have they?

The green flouro display looks soooo dated.

Should sound good though!

I just picked up one of these beauties when I was in Hong Kong 2 days ago for AUS $934 to replace my TX-SR707 as I needed the 3D and HDMI 1.4 for my TV and Blu-ray player. Wow! The 809 amp sounds amazing! I love the new look, the sounds is quite a bit better than my 707, media streaming, Digital radio, Ipod connectivity, gosh, it's fantastic!

I've now got a 707 for sale in near new condition if anybody is interested. I will consider all offers.

Cheers,

Homer

Just make sure that the serial number is still on the unit & has not been removed, a little nasty that comes with buying equiment from Hong Kong,mine was removed.

And yes my Onkyo NR808 ( previous model) 4 months old, stopped working also, repair cost me $120 however there is no guarantee that it won't play up again.

Also this may send a shiver down your spine, the 809 is also affected ( refer attachment) & we have no warranty here for Hong Kong purchases.

Cheers,

I didn't buy from the "normal" HK place. I purchased it myself from a very high end store on the 19th floor (I think) in a building that had many expensive hifi shops in it. I had it delivered to my hotel and took it home to Aus as extra luggage, sending it on the oversize belt with fragile stickers plastered all over it.

Happy to say that it made the journey intact and works beautifully.

EDIT: BTW I'm pretty sure the 809 is NOT affected. I can't see any reports in that thread and the official Onkyo bulletin dosn't mention that model either.

06/21/11 - Models: TX-NR708, TX-NR709, TX-NR808, TX-NR1008, TX-NR3008, TX-NR5008, PR-SC5508, HT-RC270, HT-RC370

Hi,

I'm in Hong Kong at the moment and am on the verge of buying this amp. Best price I can get is $7900 HKD.

I would very much appreciate it if you could let me know where you bought your amp and what price you paid in HKD.

Thanks, in anticipation, Mark.

Hi Mark, have you bought it yet and if so, how much did you pay and where from? I am going to ask my family to buy it from HK so any tips would be appreciated.

Hi Guys,

Paid $7900 HKD for it from Michael's Audio, Shop 10, Basement, Prosperity Bldg

6E Nelson St, Mongkok.

No problems with excess baggage charges (Air NZ) or Customs.

Luckily I didn't strike the very bolshie female officer to my right

who was questioning every passenger in depth about what they had purchased!

Very pleased with it so far, but haven't had much time to play with it.

After shopping around most electronics retailers - Fortress, Broadway etc

would only give 5% off retail ($8950) and most did not have stock for a couple of weeks.

Mark

Guys what's the best price you've seen from an Aussie seller? I found it for $1690 here

http://www.digitalcinema.com.au/ProductDet...er&CartID=1

Can anyone recommend a better/cheaper place to buy? thinking of purchasing this week.

I think you will find that Digital Cinema are not an official local Onkyo retailer. Given, it will be grey import, and you want cheaper then Hong Kong/Singapore will give better prices - even after shipping.

If you are after genuine official Australian stock, check out the 5 official Onkyo Authorised Internet Dealers.

Sunnybank HiFi

Eastwood HiFi

AV Australia - showing stock $1899

Direct HiFi
