The editors didn't like

  • There's no built-in AirPlay support
  • So the Onkyo TX-NR609 wouldn't be our top choice if you have an iOS device. It also doesn't sound quite as good as the Pioneer and Denon
  • Especially using the automatic speaker calibration.
  • No AirPlay support (for Apple iOS devices)
  • Great
  • But not flawless
  • Musical performance
  • WiFi requires optional adapter

  • The Onkyo TX-NR690 has six HDMI inputs and lots of built-in streaming music services, but it lacks AirPlay and doesn't sound quite as good to our ears as some competitors.

  • Extensive collection of built-in streaming apps makes it an excellent choice for buyers who don't need AirPlay compatibility, Has six HDMI inputs, including a convenient front-panel input, Onkyo offers a Wi-Fi dongle for just US$40, Street price is also lower than that of any other mid-range receiver,
  • No built-in AirPlay support, so the Onkyo TX-NR609 wouldn't be our top choice if you have an iOS device, Doesn't sound quite as good as the Pioneer and Denon, especially using the automatic speaker calibration,

  • Great sound quality; loads of inputs; can be used to control your audiovisual setup,
  • No turntable input; network music playback was too fiddly,

  • Hearty, tangible sound control, Spotify, Napster and Internet radio access, compatible with every format under the Sun
  • Audyssey Dynamic Volume ain’t all that, sister
  • Every imaginable feature you'd desire from an AV receiver, and a few you didn't know you wanted. Plus, it sounds simply amazing and doesn't cost the Earth...

  • Support for Spotify Premium and other music streaming services, Exciting, multichannel delivery, Fine stereo performer, Generous connectivity options

  • Smooth, powerful sound quality, Astonishing amount of features, Attractive new external design,
  • Could be a little more refined with music, No multichannel analogue inputs, Front sockets not covered, Editors choice,
  • After you’ve digested the TX-NR609’s epic feature list – which takes in everything from THX certification to 4K upscaling via Spotify and DLNA – you can sit back and revel in its marvellous movie sound quality, which is eminently powerful yet smooth an...
