    Post Onkyo's New Flagship!

    I love these Monsters. Have owned a couple of Onkyo's flagships. But now they are too pricey for my wallet.TX-NR1000

    I like Onkyo's stuff ... I still have an 801 elsewhere in the house and their universal player in my HT rig ... but when all is said and done, it's STILL JUST a RECEIVER ...

    Hit the link and read up on it, that is why I posted it.

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    In an age when home entertainment technology is often out of date as soon as it is introduced, Onkyo has now adapted the computer industry's architecture of replaceable modules, upgradeable software, and build-to-order marketing. These will make it possible for consumers to upgrade and even customize hardware and software to avoid short-term obsolescence. As new modules become available, customers will have choices, just as they do when purchasing a computer.

    I like the idea, and think it's a technicians' dream....but I am not an Onkyo fan. Onkyo manufactures some solid gear, no doubt, this will hopefully follow their high-end approach. It certainly look's, and read's the part.

    I can just see the HT newbie, with more money than brains, looking at the back of his new 14.1 DD- EXXX-DTS-ESSS receiver and bragging to his buddies about the 14 channels of surround sound!

    That sure is a buttload of speaker terminals.:D

    Onkyo & Denon had showed thier new flag ship products at ces & both have gone to upgradeble type products. Need HDMI order an hdmi board etc. Kinda like the higher priced meridian products. Forward compatable is what thier shooting for! Great concept! Spend the money & you will get a product that will be upgradeble for years(hopefully)! You will be able to taylor your receiver to what you need not set your system up around what the receiver can do!

    It states that it is a 7.1. For $5000 I think I would lean twards seperates, but if I was spending that much I would give pretty much everything a look-over before commiting.

    This receiver has some nice features for video. It will do video up and down conversion from any source to any source. In these days of video flux, this is almost a need to have feature.

    I suppose since my first piece of HT gear was the Onk tx-ds787 I have a bit of soft spot for them. I can say the piece still operates flawlessly and whenever I called Onkyo I always got a person on the other end who understood my questions and gave me an answer I could understand. It really does a great job with HT, with music I find it best just to bypass any processing and go with their "Direct" function.

    The idea of being to upgrade by ordering specific parts is another way the electronics industry is trying to meet our needs, likely to trend others will and have followed.

    I'd have to agree, although it looks nice and I'm sure has an endless supply of bells and whistles, no way would I spend 5 grand on a receiver.
