New Onkyo 7.1-Channel AV Receivers

This site has moved to

Onkyo introduces 2 new receivers for European market - TX-SR803E (shown) and TX-SR703E. First model is THX Ultra 2 certified blasting 7x140 Watts into 6 Ohms and features HDMI switching, features that are omitted in TX-SR703E. However, TX-SR703E is THX Select 2 certified but has a little less power output than that of its bigger brother. These are the highlights of TX-SR803E:
• 7 x 140w per channel of all-discrete amplification (into 6 ohms)
• THX Select 2-Certified
• HDMI-switching (2 inputs/one output)
• iPod-compatible (via optional Onkyo DS-A1 dock)
• Microphone-based auto set-up system
• High-performance 32-bit processing
• 7 x 192kHz/24-bit Audio DACs
• Quality AM/FM RDS tuner with 40-station presets
• Composite/S-Video-to-Component Video Up-Conversion with TBC (Time Base Corrector)
• A separate powered Zone 2 output plus a stereo pre-amp output for Zone 2 (with 12v trigger)
• 12v trigger for Zone 2
• 9-stage subwoofer crossover switching, from 40Hz to 200Hz
• RS232 port for full integration with AMX/Crestron home automation systems
• MM phono section for turntable users
• Backlit learning/pre-programmed remote control

As I said, TX-SR703E is basically the same without THX Ultra 2 certification, HDMI, and tad less power.
Both models are available in black or silver. TX-SR703E is suggested at €899 and TX-SR803E for €1199
