Onkyo TX-NR509B 5.1 Channel AV Receiver Black

The Onkyo TX-NR509 is a new entry level AV receiver with networking ability that takes you one step closer to fully integrated home entertainment.

Audio files from your computer and streaming internet radio can both now be played through your main system, with fidelity far beyond what you’re used to on a PC.

When it comes to setting up the TX-NR509, Audyssey 2EQ works to adapt the soundstage to the unique dimensions of your room. On-the-fly adjustments to audio and video settings are simple, thanks to the user-friendly overlaid on-screen display.

The receiver’s four advanced HDMI inputs handle stunning high-definition Dolby and DTS audio, as well as dynamic new 3D video. Further connectivity highlights include a new front-panel USB port that offers a clean digital link for both iPod/iPhone and USB storage devices, and Zone 2 line-outs that let you send a stereo audio signal to a second room equipped with an amp and speakers.

All in all, the TX-NR509 network AV receiver offers a superb feature set for the value conscious home cinema fan.

Nail on the head.
i love this brand better than sony !
Corking price for this amp.

USB socket works with USB sticks to play music, not films - I haven't found a way of playing back films (I suspect it lacks the hardware to do it)

I was happy with paying £329 for my amp.

I see this has ethernet, does it support Airplay from a macbook/ipod touch etc?

There seems to be some kind of remote control app called oplay for IOS that mentions airplay, but it doesn't say if it only works using that app?

I can't comment on Airplay, there is an Onkyo remote app that works with it.

The remote app lets you control the AMP. You can stream from your Android or IOS so i presume that airplay would work.
Amazing price for an amazing amp. I got this a couple of weeks ago from best buy for £299 with a 10% off so paid about £270. Thought that was good but wish i had waited! I must admit taking the badge off and writting Sony on it made it sound alot better.

It's HUKD - never let price, specs or availability get in the way of a pointless cold vote

Every time these pictures are posted I find myself drooling and reaching for my wallet.
Trouble is I haven't a clue what it can do nor what all the sockets are for.Although the 'Ethernet' socket is familiar.

Is there a manual anywhere that I can look at?

In a nutshell you will need to add a 5.1 speaker kit to this (KEF KHT1005.2 are excellent). That is all the speaker points on the right taken up and also the Sub Preout socket.

The other sockets:

You have 4 digital audio ins, 2 optical and 2 coax. This enables you to connect things like a media centre, PS3, Sky box, bluray, etc etc and get true DTS or Dolby Digital sound if the source you are watching is transmitting it.

Component video is for older kit like a DVD player or a Wii or Xbox. Still HDish but in an analogue way!

The Video/Audio bank of sockets is your normal analogue sockets like you would see on a standard audio Amp. You probably wouldn't need these if you have HDMI and optical. The HDMI's are basically a pass through to your TV and if the HDMI source transmits audio this Amp will pick up the signal and output it through the speakers.


The Ethernet lets you stream internet radio.

Hope this goes someway to explaining it!

Thank you that is very helpful.
Really like the look of this one, £299 at Best Buy now again though

How often do they have sales again? Presume price may go back to £239.99?

Many thanks for the explanation.
Sounds good. But still no spare cash.
