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.

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

  • Audyssey Dynamic Volume ain’t all that, sister

  • The Onkyo TX-NR609 is an exciting, well-connected, 3D-compatible AV receiver that bristles with features, including Internet radio and support for Spotify Premium. It's something of a belter....
