Mid-range Receiver Brings the Latest in Audio-Video Technology for Immersive Entertainment in the Living Room and Beyond

March 28, 2017

OSAKA, JAPAN. Crystal clarity and superb dynamic performance define the 7.2-Channel TX-NR676E Network A/V Receiver from Onkyo, a high-value component that adds next-generation audio-video support, app-based streaming, and multi-room audio distribution to a foundation of high-current amplification power.

The 160 W/Ch TX-NR676E features Dynamic Audio Amplification to produce high current through low impedance, improving control of speaker drivers for accurate sound. Original non-phase-shift amp circuitry assures imaging clarity with low distortion, even at high volume and with all channels driven, resulting in thrilling surround-sound.

Combined with AccuReflex, which aligns the phase of directional and non-directional sounds when used with compatible elevation speakers, Dolby Atmos® and DTS:X™ object-based soundtracks are reproduced with astonishing clarity through 5.2.2 channels.

The TX-NR676E features Dolby Surround and DTS Neural:X™ upmixing solutions that recreate an object-based experience from legacy multichannel formats in environments where height channels are employed.

The TX-NR676E includes six rear HDCP 2.2-compliant HDMI® inputs supporting pass-through of Dolby Vision™, HDR10, BT.2020, and 4K/60p video for the ultimate in visual immersion, while front HDMI input and HDMI Sub Out terminals are added for convenient video camera and projector connection.

Music lovers can listen to their favorite songs anywhere, any time with Onkyo Controller for iPad, iPhone, iPod touch, and Android™*1. The app manages multi-room distribution of streaming services, internet radio, and network files, as well as music from CD players and turntables connected via analog audio inputs, from the receiver to Onkyo NCP-302 wireless speakers over FireConnect™*2 powered by Blackfire.

The TX-NR676E comes with Chromecast built-in*3, a platform that lets users stream any music from apps on iPhone, iPad, Android phone or tablet, Mac or Windows® laptop, or Chromebook™. Furthermore, DTS Play-Fi®*3 enables quick casting from supported apps and devices for playback on the TX-NR676E.

On-demand music and internet radio services include Spotify®*4, TIDAL*4, Deezer*4, and TuneIn*4. All network streaming and control functions, including AirPlay, operate over 5 GHz/2.4 GHz Wi-Fi® for stability in areas with household network congestion. Music streaming capabilities are further bolstered with built-in Bluetooth® wireless technology.

Onkyo Controller also allows users to select albums and songs from network-attached music libraries; play music stored on USB memory devices; or select a source to share to speakers in another room via Powered Zone 2 speaker outputs.

Combined with a 32-bit DSP chipset, high-quality 384 kHz/32-bit DAC, and proprietary VLSC™ high-frequency noise removal technology, the receiver exploits Hi-Res Audio formats including DSD 5.6 MHz/2.8 MHz*5 and 192 kHz/24-bit WAV, FLAC, AIFF, and ALAC to fullest potential for high-fidelity stereo listening.

Other practical inclusions are pairs of composite and component video inputs, a phono input, three digital audio inputs (two optical/one coaxial), and six analog audio inputs.

Powered by a smart GUI, and with finger-friendly keys on a stylish front panel, the TX-NR676E is ready to enrich daily life, transforming thin mobile and TV sound into an unforgettable entertainment experience.
