  2. Data sheet

With automatic speaker measurement, video to-HDMI conversion and moderate multi-room capabilities, the 804 of his chief role under the attainable Onkyo’s meets and largely draws equal with the Marantz SR-6001. The latter has the better calibration system (Audyssey), for which attracts 804 THX, a better remote control and a phono inputs – which, however, promises due to high capacity with high-output MCs really balanced sound. Unfortunately missing the option to attract the surround back amplifiers idle in 5.1 as an alternative to the bi-Amping of the front channels the Onkyo – particularly in stereo mode this mode sound advantages can bring.
