Audio: The graph shows the Onkyo TX-NR828’s left channel, from CD input to speaker output with two channels continuously driving 8-ohm loads. Measurements for THD+noise, crosstalk, signal-to-noise ratio, and analog/digital signal frequency response were all within expected performance parameters. Full details available at soundandvisionmag.com/TestBench.—MJP

Video: The Onkyo passed all of our standard video tests without a hiccup, including the 2:2 cadence tests that many products fail. Its upconversions from 480i and 1080i to 1080p were excellent, and its direct passthrough of 1080p signals was pristine.—TJN
