Onkyo TX-SR608 AV receiver is THX certified and 3D-ready

Onkyo has some of the best AV gear in the business and sits right at the top of my personal home theater wish list. Onkyo offers a wide range of gear including AV receivers and home theater in a box systems. Onkyo has debuted its latest AV receiver called the TX-SR608.

The 3D-ready receiver is a 7.2 channel THX-Select2 Plus certified receiver that uses a three-stage Darlington output topology to increase power from 90 to 100 watts. The receiver also uses an Audyssey DSX dimensional sound processor along with its Dolby PLIIz capability.

All input signals can be upscaled with the Faroudja DCDi cinema video processor to 1080p resolution via HDMI out. Upscaling applies to the PC input as well and the original source resolution of the content doesn't matter. The receiver also has a front HDMI input and will ship in April for $599.
