Now your 3D Blu-ray players or gaming consoles or Sky 3D box can be plugged into the TX-SR309 conveniently and you will be able to enjoy 3D entertainment with minimum of fuss.
The HD audio processing capability can be considered as the heart of Onkyo TXSR309. The receiver will easily handle HD lossless audio codecs from Dolby and DTS while bringing great surround sound processing for Blu-ray.
With advances in the different types of entertainment gadgets that are available, Onkyo has kept up with the pace and has put in quite a few sockets to let you connect those gadgets to your AV receiver. 3xHDMI inputs and an output will let you connect Blu-ray, digital TV and games console and route all their visuals through to the TV.
While being advanced the AV receiver doesn't forget old devices and it is equipped with sockets that will allow you to connect older DVD players as well. Through the front-mounted USB socket you can connect your iPod or iPhone.
User-friendliness is the key with Onkyo AV receivers and TX-SR309 is no exception with its overlaid On-Screen Display that would allow you to adjust the settings as per your needs.
