Onkyo has announced three new receivers, the top of the line being the TX-SR608, with the latest HDMI 1.4 spec so in addition to all their other features, they'll be able to pass a 3D signal from your 3D capable BD player.

All the specs and details after the jump.

In addition to HDMI 1.4, all three will decode the latest audio codecs and include 24-bit/192kHz Burr-Brown PCM1690 DACs.

The 7.2-channel TX-SR608 is THX-Select2 Plus certified and has 100 watts per channel. In addition to Dolby ProLogic IIz height processing, there is now Audyssey DSX for height and width capabilities. Video processing, scaling, and transcoding is done via a Faroudja DCDi Cinema chip. The TX-SR608 will ship in April.

Another really cool feature is called HDMI Thru. This allows the HDMI signal to pass to the TV without the receiver being on.

Also available, with a few fewer features, are the 7.1-channel TX-SR508 and 5.1-channel TX-SR308 which will be available in April and March respectively.

TX-SR608: $599
TX-SR508: $399
TX-SR308: $299

As usual Onkyo is one of the firsts, or the first, big company to include the latest technology. Two thumbs up!!!! for Onkyo, I hope not to be disappointed about these new receivers.
