Onkyo – CES 2012
Checking out Onkyo’s 2012 audio video receiver (AVR) with InstaPrevue and Mobile High-definition Link (MHL) was one of the things I was looking forward to the most at CES, and I wasn’t disappointed. Not only was InstaPrevue a slick way to view and select inputs (third picture in the gallery), but given how it seems to work I would be surprised if it didn’t alleviate many of the common switching-inputs EDID issues. They weren’t able to share much about feature segmentation in the 2012 models so it won’t be known for a few months which SKUs will benefit from both of these features. That said, Onkyo has consistently demonstrated a very high feature-per-dollar ratio so I wouldn’t be surprised to see them in all but the budget models.
