Onkyo's TX-SR805 carries Lucasfilm Ltd.'s prestigious THX Ultra2 certification for guaranteed home theater excellence. Top-notch THX processing plus 130 watts x 7 channels of high-current Onkyo power give you intense, high-impact surround sound for your movies, music, TV shows, and video games. You also get decoding for the latest surround sound formats, including Dolby® True HD and DTS-HD™ Master Audio — two new high-resolution surround sound formats found on many Blu-ray players and discs.

Flexible video connections
The 'SR805's 1080p-compatible HDMI inputs let you hook up three high-def sources for easy switching. Plus, analog-to-HDMI video conversion allows you to pass the video signals from all your components to your TV via a single HDMI connection — even older, standard-definition sources. This simplifies hookup and maintains the best picture quality possible for every source in your system. For televisions without a digital input, component video conversion offers similar convenience in the analog video realm.

Precision auto setup tailors sound to your room
The 'SR805 includes Audyssey MultEQ® XT, a sophisticated speaker calibration system that helps you get the most accurate home theater sound possible. This receiver uses the included microphone to analyze sound from up to eight different listening positions, then automatically adjusts level, equalization, and delay settings for each of your speakers. You get precise response across a wide listening area instead of just a single "sweet spot," so everyone in the room can enjoy perfect home theater sound.

Multi-room audio and more
This receiver's three-room/three-source audio output lets you enjoy surround sound in your main room while housemates listen to different stereo music sources in a second or even third room. A handy learning/multibrand remote makes it easy to control all of the components in your system. You can integrate your iPod® by adding Onkyo's handy control dock. The 'SR805 is also XM Ready and compatible with XM's HD surround music channels. Or connect an optional SiriusConnect™ home tuner kit to enjoy SIRIUS satellite programming. (Subscriptions required for XM and SIRIUS.)

Features

7.1 Channel Amplifier: The Onkyo TX-SR805 features a 130 watt x 7-channel amplifier in 8-ohms at 20 to 20,000 Hz with a maximum total harmonic distortion of 0.05%.

WRAT (Wide Range Amplifier Technology): This technology uses low-negative-feedback circuit topology for accurate signal reproduction, improved dynamic signal-to-noise ratio, and better delivery of power peaks.

Digital-to-Analog Converters (DACs): To decode and playback high-resolution recordings, this receiver is equipped with top of the line Burr-Brown 192kHz/24-bit DACs for all channels.

Speaker Impedance: There is a menu adjustment for minimum speaker impedance. Options are 6Ω (for speakers 6 to 16-ohms) and 4Ω (for speakers 4 or 5-ohms).

On-Screen Display (OSD): An OSD can be displayed on your television for easy system setup. The joystick/enter button on the remote makes display navigation and setting adjustment simple and convenient. The setup OSD is passed through all the monitor outputs (composite video, S-video, component video, and HDMI). Once the system is setup, operation details (volume for example) are displayed on screen when using the composite or S-video inputs. Operation details are not displayed when watching a source using the component video or HDMI inputs. You can select a 4:3 or 16:9 aspect ratio for the monitor output so the menu is displayed properly to match your TV's screen.

Component Video Switching: In addition to composite and S-Video switching, this unit can switch between high resolution component video sources. There are 3 component video inputs and 1 component video monitor output. The component video inputs and outputs have a bandwidth of 100MHz.

HDMI Switching: The TX-SR805 has three HDMI version 1.3a inputs and one HDMI version 1.3a output for connecting DVD players, HDTV set-top boxes, and other video components through the receiver to your TV or projector. The HDMI cables will pass digital audio and video. The HDMI inputs are compatible with DVI, so TVs and displays with a DVI input can be connected by using an HDMI-to-DVI adapter cable, along with audio cables. The receiver uses HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection), so only HDCP-compatible components can display the picture. The HDMI inputs can accept and switch 480i, 480p, 720p, 1080i, and 1080p signals to a TV, monitor, or projector. Each of the HDMI inputs can be assigned to any of the three rear panel A/V inputs (DVD, VCR/DVR, CBL/SAT).

Faroudija DCDi Edge Technology: The Onkyo TX-SR805 utilizes deinterlacing chips featuring Faroudja DCDi Edge technology to convert 480i interlaced video signals to 480p progressive scan signals.

Video Conversion: The TX-SR805 will also convert incoming analog composite video, S-video, and component video signals to HDMI so you can connect all your video sources through the receiver and then to your TV via HDMI to give you the best picture quality possible. The receiver can also convert composite video and S-video signal to component video; useful if your television does not feature an HDMI input.

RIHD (Remote Interactivity Over HDMI): RIHD synchronizes RIHD-compatible displays and components for integrated control via HDMI connection and use of the receiver's IR remote control. RIHD provides the following integrated operations.

  • Control: this function allows CEC-standard-compatible equipment connected to HDMI and RIHD-compatible equipment to be operated together with the Onkyo receiver
  • Power Control: provides an electrical power link between the TX-SR805 and RIHD-compatible components through the HDMI connection and allows for those components to turn on or off with the receiver
  • TV Control: allows you to control the TX-SR805 from an RIHD-compatible TV that is connected via HDMI, currently compatible with Panasonic Televisions featuring EZ Sync

Satellite Ready: The Onkyo TX-SR805 features proprietary ports on the rear panel for XM and Sirius Satellite Radio connection. In addition to the following optional satellite tuners needed (sold separately), you will need a subscription to XM and/or Sirius Satellite radio. 

  • XM Satellite Radio Ready: The receiver can be connected to the optional XM Home Mini-Tuner and Home Dock (part # 700XMTUNPK, sold separately), allowing you to receive XM Satellite Radio through the TX-SR805. You can search XM radio stations by Channel, Category or Direct Tuning. You can also choose to display the following XM information on the receiver's display - Channel Name, Channel Number, Category Name, Artist Name or Song Title.
  • Sirius Satellite Radio Ready: The TX-SR805 can also be connected to the optional SiriusConnect Home Tuner kit (part # 607SCH1, sold separately), which allows you to receive Sirius Satellite Radio through the receiver. You can search Sirius radio stations by Channel, Category or Direct Tuning. You can also choose to display the following Sirius information on the receiver's display - Channel Name, Channel Number, Category Name, Artist Name or Song Title.

iPod Compatible: The DS-A1 or DS-A2 Remote Interactive Dock for iPod (item #'s 580DSA1 and 580DSA2) provide an interface between an iPod digital media player and Onkyo TX-SR805. Once the iPod is docked you can control basic functions such as volume control, play, stop, and skip via the Onkyo system's RI-compatible wireless remote control. The dock also charges the battery in the iPod, and allows you to view digital photos and video on an Onkyo home theater system.

Audyssey MultEQ XT: MultEQ XT is Audyssey's most powerful built-in solution for countering distortion in dedicated home theaters. This technology detects speakers, and then sets levels, delays and crossovers, as well as measuring room acoustics. Using the receiver interface, it takes up to 8 measurements around the listening area and uses high-resolution equalization filters for satellites and subwoofers. MultEQ XT covers both frequency response and time domain (where most of the problems lie) across the entire listening area. The results are immediately obvious - a clear, well-balanced and natural sound. With the supplied speaker setup microphone, Audyssey MultEQ XT can measure the number of speakers connected, their sizes, crossover frequencies, and distances from the listening position and calculate the optimal speaker settings for you automatically. The supplied microphone is approximately 1-15/16" in diameter, 7/8" tall, and has a 19-3/4' cable that plugs into the front of the receiver. There is a threaded insert on the bottom of the microphone so it can be mounted on a tripod for accurate listening position placement. If you wish to setup the speakers manually, you can follow the procedure for Speaker Configuration.

Speaker Distance: The distance from your listening position to each speaker can also be set manually. The front speaker distance can be set from 1 to 30 feet in 1-foot increments. The center and subwoofer settings can be up to 5 feet more or 5 feet less than the distance you set for the front speakers (30 feet max). The settings for the surround left, surround right, surround back left, and surround back right speakers are each individually adjustable, and they may be up to 5 feet more or 15 feet less than the distance you set for the front speakers (30 feet max).

Speaker Levels: You can manually adjust the level of individual speakers between -12dB and +12dB; -15dB to +12dB for the subwoofer in 0.5 dB steps.

Double Bass: You can increase the bass output by activating the Double Bass function. This function feeds both the LFE and left and right channel bass output to the subwoofer. Double Bass can be set only when the subwoofer is set to On and the front speakers are set to Large.

Crossover: The TX-SR805 has a built-in crossover for the speaker system. The crossover points are set separately for the front, center, surround, surround back, and subwoofer channels. The sub crossover options are 80(THX), 90, 100, and 120 Hz. The other channels can be set to Full Range, 40, 60, 70, 80 (THX), 90, 100, 120, 150, or 200 Hz. The center and surround speakers can also be turned off.

LFE Level and Filter Settings: You can set the level of the LFE channel individually for Dolby Digital, DTS and multichannel PCM sources. The level can be set to -20 dB, -10 dB or 0 dB. You can also specify the cutoff frequency of the LFE channel's low-pass filter which can be used to filter out unwanted hum. The LPF only applies to sources that use the LFE channel. You can select from the following low-pass filter frequencies - 80 Hz (THX), 90 Hz, 100 Hz, 110 Hz, or 120 Hz.

Equalizer: Using the receiver's built-in electronic 7-band equalizer, you can adjust the tone of speakers individually. You can adjust the following frequencies independently for all seven speakers in your system between -6 dB to +6 dB in 1 dB increments - 63 Hz, 160 Hz, 400 Hz 1000 Hz, 2500 Hz, 6300 Hz or 16000 Hz. You can also adjust the following frequencies of the subwoofer between -6 dB to +6 dB in 1 dB increments - 25 Hz, 40 Hz, 63 Hz, 100 Hz or 160 Hz.

  • DTS + PLIIx Movie: uses the Pro Logic IIx Movie mode to expand 5.1-channel DTS sources for 7.1-channel playback

Dolby Pro Logic II & IIx Music Modes: While listening in the Dolby Pro Logic II or IIx Music format, there are three further enhancements you can adjust:

  • Panorama: broadens the front stereo image to the surround speakers to provide a wraparound effect, especially effective when there is limited output from the surround channels, panorama can be turned on/off in the menu
  • Dimension: allows you to move the sound field forward or backward
  • Center Width: allows you to adjust the width of the center channel

Center Image: In the DTS Neo:6 Music mode, the Center Image feature adjusts the output of the left and right channels relative to the center channel, allowing you to make the center channel more or less dominant as needed. This improves the image of the center channel, especially when the listener is off-center. Adjustment varies from 5 (nothing subtracted from the L/R channels) to 0 (L/R channel output is cut in half).

Re-Equalization Circuitry: Re-EQ (re-equalization) corrects a soundtrack with high frequency response that's too harsh, compensating for the fact that sound mixed for large theaters may sound too bright when played back through speakers in the home environment. This can be set to either On or Off.

Bass and Treble: You can adjust the bass and treble for the front speakers. You can boost or cut low-frequency (20Hz) sounds output by the front speakers from -10 to +10 dB in 2 dB steps. You can boost or cut high-frequency (20kHz) sounds output by the front speakers from -10 to +10 dB in 2 dB steps.

Late Night Feature: The Late Night feature limits the dynamic range of Dolby Digital recordings. Limiting the dynamic range makes it easier to find a volume that ensures the quiet sounds are not too quiet and the loud sounds are not too loud for night time listening. This allows you to comfortably listen to without the need to constantly adjust the volume to keep from waking family/neighbors. The choices are: Off, Low, and High.

Note: This feature only works with Dolby Digital Encoded software and the depth of the feature will vary based on the individual software package.

A/V Sync: When the picture is not perfectly synchronized with the sound, this receiver can delay the audio from 0-250ms, in 1ms increments.

IntelliVolume: The IntelliVolume setup function allows you set a volume correction value in the range of -12dB to +12dB, in 1dB increments, for each source to prevent large jumps in volume when switching from one source to another. This feature eliminates the inconvenience of manually readjusting the volume control each time you switch from a source with a weak signal to a source with a strong signal and vice versa.

Volume Setup: The receiver volume can be configured in the following ways:

  • Maximum Volume: prevent the volume from being turned too high by setting a maximum level for Zone 1, Zone 2 and Zone 3; specify any volume in the top half of the volume range
  • Power On Volume: specify the volume setting when the receiver is turned on for Zone 1, Zone 2, or Zone 3; specify any volume or Last to use the same level that was used when the receiver was turned off.
  • Headphones Level: set the headphone volume relative to the main volume, choose a level between -12dB and +12dB

Name Edit: You can enter a custom name for each individual input selector and radio preset for easy identification.

Bi-Amp Speaker Connections: The Front Left/Right and Surround Back Left/Right terminal posts can be used together to bi-amp a front pair speakers that support bi-amping, providing separate tweeter and woofer power feeds, giving you improved bass and treble performance. When bi-amping, the Front Left/Right terminal posts connect to the front speakers' tweeter terminals while the Surround Back Left/Right terminal posts connect to the front speakers' woofer terminals. During bi-amping, the receiver is able to drive up to a 5.1 speaker system.

Multi-room Capability: You can use three speaker systems with the TX-SR805 receiver - a surround-sound speaker system up to 7.1 channels in your main listening room (Zone 1), a stereo speaker system in a second room (Zone 2) and another stereo speaker system in a third room (Zone 3). The zone 2 and 3 outputs allow you to enjoy one source in your main listening room, while other sources play in remote rooms. Depending on how you configure the receiver, using Zone 2 will require an additional amplifier and speakers, a set of powered speakers, or simply a set of non-powered speakers located in a remote location. You can connect the dedicated Zone 2 stereo RCA line outputs to a receiver/amplifier or powered speakers in one room while powering a 7.1-channel speaker system in the main room; the output level of the RCA line outs for Zone 2 and Zone 3 can be switched from fixed for variable, so they can be connected to an amplifier or powered speakers equipped with or without a volume control. You can also connect a pair of speakers to the receiver's dedicated Zone 2 speaker terminals and simultaneously power a 5.1-channel speaker system in the main room. When the Zone 2 speaker terminals are turned on, the Surround Back speaker outputs do not work. When the Zone 2 speaker terminals are off, the Surround Back speaker outputs work as normal. The Zone 2 speaker output volume setting can be controlled with the remote. Only analog sources can be played in Zone 2 or Zone 3. Zone 3 requires an additional amplifier and speakers or a set of powered speakers to listen to a different 2-channel stereo source in another room while still playing 2-channel audio in Zone 2 and multi-channel audio in your main room (Zone 3 does not offer speaker terminal connection).

Sleep Function: From the remote, you can set the unit to automatically turn off after as much as 90 minutes or as little as 10 minutes; choices are presented in 10-minute increments.

Display Dimmer: The display illumination includes the green alphanumeric display and a blue ring around the volume knob. You can dim the display as follows: Normal and Volume light on, Normal and Volume light off, Dim and Volume light off, and Dimmer and Volume light off.

Lock Setup: With this feature, you can protect your settings by locking the setup menus.
