>> Hey everyone I'm Jeff Bakalar, assistant editor here at CNET.com. And I'm here today with the Onkyo HT-SR800. The SR800 is strictly a AV receiver. It's a home theater in a box, but it doesn't come with a DVD player. if you want one of those you are going to have to provide your own. The front of the device is laid out pretty well, it has a ton of buttons, basically lets you do anything you can do on the remote upfront on the panel. It also comes with an easily accessible composite video input, so you can quickly hook up a camera or a video game console. The SR800 comes with an incredible amount of inputs, it has two HDMI inputs, three component inputs and a number of composite inputs, plenty you'll, you'll never need to go any further than this device right here. The only drawback to the HDMI input is that it can not carry the audio signal, usually HDMI is for video and audio, in this case you are only going to be getting the video signal out of HDMI. If you want to take advantage of the audio out of the device you are hooking up, you are going to have to use a different interface. The SR800 comes with Sirius and Xm compatibility, the SR800 is strictly a pass-through unit, it doesn't up convert anything, it doesn't upscale anything, whatever you put into it is whenever you're going to get out of it. The sound quality on the SR800 is excellent. What's even better is that it's upgradeable, you don't have to use the speakers that come with the unit, you can use your own. And if you use a higher grade speaker quality, you're going to get a better sound. Over all, the SR800 is a great value, it comes with a ton of inputs and it's incredibly affordable. I'm Jeff Bakalar and this has been Onkyo HT-SR800. ^M00:01:56 [ Music ]
The Onkyo TX-SR605 raises the bar for AV receivers by delivering an amazing number of next-generation audio and video features at an unbeatably low price.
The Onkyo TX-SR805 is an all-around excellent AV receiver with plenty of audiophile appeal, but its less than ideal video performance may give HDTV aficionados a reason to hold out for higher-end alternatives.
Onkyo's midrange AV receiver is packed with 8 HDMI inputs and a superlow street price of $410. What's the catch?
The thin-and-light Sony VAIO VGN-S470P delivers an ideal combination of performance and features in a perfectly portable package.
The Onkyo TX-SR606 offers tons of functionality for the price, but subpar video processing and improved competition means it's less of a standout receiver than last year's version.
While its bulky design isn't for everyone, you'd be hard-pressed to find a more full-featured and better sounding all-in-one 7.1 home theater system for the price than the Onkyo HT-S7200.
The Onkyo HT-RC260 offers an extraordinary value for a receiver with six HDMI inputs, although its sound quality isn't what we expect from an Onkyo.
The competitively priced Dell Inspiron 6000 delivers a very solid combination of performance, features, and design for basic home or small-office use.
Despite the jaw-dropping price tag, the HTC Touch Pro2 is a powerful smartphone that delivers in performance and features to make it one of the best devices for Sprint's business customers.»
For the price, the Motorola Atrix 2 is an amazingly feature-packed high-performance Android phone for AT&T customers.
