Onkyo TX-SR505E review


Impressive features and performance for an attractive price

Excellent features ; Strong performance

Unattractive ; Flimsy build

Beneath the dull exterior this entry-level AV receiver is laden with features and packs a mighty punch for the price

Onkyo TX-SR505E


The new Onkyo TX-SR505E AV receiver is a remarkably flexible home cinema model for the money. Its looks are eye-catching for all the wrong reasons, but the cheap and rather plasticky styling is the only sacrifice to keep pricing low

Onkyo TX-SR705 Home Theater Receiver


The evolution in high-tech A/V receivers is accelerating at a dizzying pace. Advanced features previously debuted in fl agship receivers and then trickled down into more affordable models a year or so later. Nowadays quantum leaps in technology occur...

At $899, Onkyo’s TX-SR705 receiver is a bona fi de bargain, providing a nearly ideal combination of cutting-edge technologies, features that make a meaningful difference for listeners, and—most important—sophisticated sound. No other AVR I’ve heard...

Product Specifications

To best appreciate the versatility of the TX-SR505E, think of the home entertainment components that define today's consumer electronics landscape. It's a formidable selection, with HD-ready displays (from the first generation to the latest 1080p models), DVD players (including the latest Blu-ray and HD DVD players), gaming consoles (such as the Xbox and PlayStation 3), set-top boxes (consider PVRs offering HD transmissions) and MP3 players (specifically the dominant iPod). With the TX-SR505E's HDMI transport enabling pass-thru sources up to 1080p and component video supporting 720p and 1080i sources, this A/V receiver is a fine investment for those who want the best of what's available today... and tomorrow. Also, with the ability to tune the TX-SR505E to your room's surroundings through Audyssey 2EQ, you're looking at a seriously capable entertainment control center, without the excessive price tag.
