Escape into THX®-Certified Surround Sound

Movie, music, and gaming enthusiasts can now step up to realistic THX® Select2 Plus™-certified surround sound for less money down with the new TX-NR616 Network A/V Receiver. Onkyo’s acclaimed WRAT amplifier with three-stage inverted Darlington circuitry delivers cinema-like power in the home. With Audyssey DSX® expansion, you can add extra Front Height channels for more enveloping surround sound, while 2EQ acoustic correction guarantees optimal performance in any room. Eight HDMI® inputs handle 3D content, HD audio, and video display upscaled to 4K with onboard Qdeo™ technology. The MHL/HDMI input lets you connect a smart phone for smooth 1080p playback on your TV. Wireless home networking, meanwhile, opens up an exciting world of internet radio and cloud-based music streaming. You can even enjoy your multi-format PC-based music collection over Wi-Fi with an optional USB adapter. Intuitive system control—including audio distribution in multiple rooms—is provided by Onkyo’s Remote Apps for iPod touch/iPhone and Android phone, or press the Quick Set-Up button on the supplied remote for instant mid-program adjustments. Visual input selection with InstaPrevue™ technology rounds out what is an exceptionally refined and affordable THX receiver.

THX® Select2 Plus™ Certified

THX Select2 Plus certification is specified for rooms where the screen-to-seat viewing distance is three to four meters and the room volume is around 56 cubic meters. To achieve THX Select2 Plus certification, the TX-NR616 had to meet the world’s most demanding standards for home theater audio quality and performance, and play at reference volume levels with minimal distortion.

4K Video Upscaling and Processing via Qdeo™ Technology

The TX-NR616 offers full 4K (4096 x 2160) upscaling of standard video sources such as 480i/p, 720p, and 1080i/p. Interlaced-to-progressive conversion and scaling are performed by high-quality Qdeo technology from Marvell. Qdeo is a versatile video processor that uses algorithms designed to erase video noise and artifacts such as jaggies and feathering. Played back on a compatible wide-screen display, your Blu-ray Discs and DVDs will look more detailed and cinematic than ever.

Note: 4K video playback requires a 4K-compatible TV. HDMI pass-through of 4K content from source devices is not supported. 4K upscaling of analog video is only available at 480i.

Audyssey DSX® and Dolby® Pro Logic® IIz for Three-Dimensional Surround Sound

The TX-NR616 incorporates surround-sound technologies from Audyssey and Dolby to offer greater flexibility in the setup of your home theater. Audyssey DSX can expand 5.1-channel audio soundtracks to incorporate additional Front Height channels, while the Dolby system also adds two Height channels and stereo source expansion. A seven-channel set-up provides a more detailed, realistic, and three-dimensional soundtrack, with the extra channels carrying subtle directional and ambient effects.
