The Bottom Line If you want an AV receiver that has plenty of power and supports the latest high definition audio, the Onkyo TX-SR875 should be on your shopping list. Its support for DTS-HD Master Audio and Dolby TrueHD via HDMI is a boon

Onkyo TX-SR875

If you want to experience cinema-style surround sound in the comfort of your own home, then you're going to need some sort of surround sound system. You can pick up all-in-one systems from as little as £200, if you look around. At the top end, you could spend many thousands of pounds.

The Onkyo TX-SR875 sits proudly at around £1000, which puts it somewhere in the middle of the market. It's also the big daddy to some of Onkyo's more wallet-friendly machines.

Strengths
The clear advantage of this receiver over most others on the market is its amazing support for the latest audio formats used on HD DVD and Blu-ray. Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio are both supported.
