  2. Data sheet

As regards the facilities, there was at the big new Onkyo compared to the highlight TX equipped already with nine installation amplifiers NR much increasing 3007 of the January issue. In principle it was ultra 2 plus Dolby Pro Logic IIz and Audyssey DSX height and wide even at the same, rich laden Digital board with the three audio DSPs by THX everything front and back process. But now came an eighth HDMI input.

Most importantly: six sitting on the solder points for the DACs now instead of Burr Brown PCM 1796 more expensive PCM 1795, which at least theoretically manage the primeval dynamics of 32 bit and -even if not fully required — lighter than the old ICs do. Remains only a single constraint: that there are still no eight stereo converter and the 5007 therefore DSX height and wide can spend not at the same time.

The AVist again up to professional ISF picture jus days slogging the Reon-VX processor to allow, the 2500 euro Onkyo with stronger current toroidal transformer puts on it even a pound of performance – the brave includes may exploit, one of two boxes with a bridge power amplifiers double sustainably to pamper. But be careful – because flammable comes out then.

In the listening room, the TX knew no. 5007 even without this BTL circuit to ensure enough furore. But not for a brutal, but rather sensitive. Not necessarily plumper devolved basses in stereo comparison with the 3007, they appeared now but brisk and focused more closely on the rhythmic point. As well, he set his primal force – wide soundscapes – rather gently a delicate articulation and perfect respect of proportions such as Kari Bremnes vocals. Super vivid, fame and big-perspective: When the surround which the 5007 even further by the smaller brother contrasted. Similar to this, the great Onkyo Dolby HD preferred the DTS equivalent. But then he – sounded even more open, even more directly – fantastic.
