The Onkyo TXSR508 follows on from the successful TXSR507.
The Onkyo TX-SR508 offers a highly competitive, four, 3D TV compatible HDMI inputs - that's still at least one more than average at this price point. Added to this excellent HDMI count you'll also find twin optical and twin coaxial digital inputs and the full complement of component, composite and RCA phono sockets that you'd expect. In addition to a front-mounted mini-jack for easy connection of any portable with a headphone output, the TXSR508 features a universal port at the back for Onkyo iPod dock connection or DAB+ tuner upgrade module. Finally, a second zone output that's either active (powered) or passive (requires powered speakers) gives the option of spreading the sound into another room.
As you'd expect, DTS-HD Master Audio, DTS-HD High Resolution Audio, Dolby TrueHD and Dolby Digital Plus are all standard. In addition to this you'll also find Dolby Pro Logic IIz which is ideal for listening to many of the new HD TV broadcasts on TV.
When it comes to setting the TXSR508 up, the standard Audyssey 2EQ system is there to help out. This not only automatically calibrates speakers, but also corrects room acoustic issues. The upshot of this hi-tech processing is ideal sound quality, whatever the room.
Finally, there's the sound quality. The powerful sound of this amplifier is helped still further by the high power transformer, WRAT (Wide Range Amplifier Technology) Pure Audio and Double Bass Function - not to mention the 100 watts available to each speaker.
The Onkyo TXSR508 offers everything you'd expect from a class-leading AV receiver and then some!
