High-End Network Receiver Delivers Precision, Power, and PulseRaising Performance
Once again upping the ante for high-end A/V receivers, Onkyo packs the TX-NR3008 with an extremely generous selection of cutting-edge
home cinema features. This 9.2-channel networking behemoth has the flexibility to handle the latest high-def and surround formats from
DTS, Dolby, and Audyssey, while also giving you the scope for powered audio in two extra rooms. Among the connectivity highlights are an
analog PC video input, a front-panel USB input, and eight new HDMI® 1.4a inputs providing compatibility with 3D video content. All video
sources can be upscaled via HDMI and HQV Reon VX to breathtaking widescreen 1080p, with ISF calibration ensuring optimal video
performance. PC-based audio and internet radio come into play too, thanks to DLNA 1.5-compatible network streaming. The key to the
TX-NR3008’s dynamic home cinema performance is its high-end amplifier design: proprietary VLSC™ for all channels, a massive
transformer, and two separate transformers for audio and video processing. So sit back, strap in, and prepare to be amazed.
HDMI® 1.4a Support for 3D Video and Audio Return
The eight HDMI 1.4a inputs on the TX-NR3008 let you simultaneously
connect high-def sources such as a Blu-ray player, a gaming console, and
a cable/satellite tuner. And the two HDMI outputs let you send a
pristine signal at the same time to two different high-resolution displays.
As the latest version of this connector, HDMI 1.4a adds the exciting
possibilities of 3D video and an Audio Return Channel. 3D video is the
next big thing in home entertainment, with movie, game, and broadcast
content on the increase and 3D-compatible TVs coming to market. The
TX-NR3008 also offers the convenience of an Audio Return Channel
via HDMI. Audio content received directly by your HDTV’s tuner can
be sent “upstream” to you’re A/V receiver, without the need for a
separate S/PDIF audio cable.
PC Audio and Internet Radio via Network Function with
DLNA 1.5 and Windows® 7 Compatibility
As one of Onkyo’s new breed of receivers that can link directly to the
internet or to your home PC via a local network, the TX-NR3008 takes
streaming audio and internet radio to a whole new level. MP3, WMA,
WMA Lossless, FLAC, WAV, Ogg Vorbis, AAC, and LPCM audio files—
whether on your PC or from the internet—can now be played back
through your main system with unprecedented power and fidelity. The
TX-NR3008 brings to life a huge array of internet radio channels from
Last.fm, Napster, and vTuner*. As well as being compatible with earlier
platforms, the receiver is compatible with Microsoft’s new Windows 7
platform, which includes the DLNA 1.5-specified “Play To” mediastreaming feature. Another benefit of having the TX-NR3008 connected
to the internet is that you can then easily update its firmware.

THX® Ultra2 Plus™ Certified
The ultimate benchmark for home audio performance, THX Ultra2 Plus
is specified for rooms where the screen-to-seat viewing distance is
more than 4 meters and the room volume is 85 cubic meters or
greater. To achieve THX Ultra2 Plus certification, the TX-NR3008 must
meet the world’s most demanding standards for home cinema audio
quality and performance, and must play at reference volume levels with
minimal distortion.
Advanced Video Processing and 1080p Upscaling with
HQV Reon-VX is the most sophisticated video-processing chip
available for home cinema. It provides the ultimate support for 1080p
scaling; for filtering of jaggies and artifacts; and for the reduction of
random, “mosquito”, and block (codec) noise. HQV Reon-VX also
enables color region enhancement and the rendering of more than one
billion colors.

9.2-Channel Network A/V Receiver
VLSC (Vector Linear Shaping Circuitry)
Onkyo’s VLSC employs a unique digital-to-analog
conversion circuit to mitigate the effects of signal
noise. Data is converted between discrete sampling
points, which are then joined with analog vectors in
real-time to produce a continuous output wave
form. The result—a noiseless, smooth analog signal
based on the digital source.
Harnessing Power for Audio Performance
Onkyo's H.C.P.S. (High Current Power Supply)
concept is based around power transformers with
the capability to respond to the wide dynamics of
home cinema. In the case of the TX-NR3008, a
massive main transformer improves power efficiency
and radiates very little noise into the surrounding
circuitry, while two separate transformers cater
specifically to audio and video processing. The
TX-NR3008 also employs large, custom-designed
transistors to drive the high currents that today’s
home entertainment demands.
Tailor Multichannel Audio to Your Home
with Audyssey and Dolby Technologies
The TX-NR3008 is equipped with MultEQ® XT32,
Audyssey’s most powerful room-correction
technology. MultEQ XT32 gathers frequency and
time-domain measurements from up to 8 positions
in the listening area, to deliver a clear, well-balanced,
and natural sound. Two other Audyssey technologies,
Dynamic EQ® and Dynamic Volume®, work to
optimize frequency response and dynamic range at
all volume levels. In a similar vein, Dolby® Volume
performs independent loudness adjustments to
different frequencies and channels to produce a
listening experience that includes all the dynamics of
the original mix at whatever volume you choose. It
also offers the option of maintaining playback
volume at the same user-chosen level across all
input sources.
