Connect your sources to sublime sound Image

Connect your sources to sublime sound

Crafted in exacting detail to tempt hi-fi enthusiasts, the TX-8390 has connections to amplify all forms of TV-based entertainment, music, and audio sources. Inputs include HDMI®, analog and SPDIF audio, phono, Wi-Fi®, Bluetooth® wireless technology, and USB audio. A companion smartphone app gathers multi-room audio, streaming service management, and playback controls into one simple interface. GUI with transparent OSD simplifies setup and operation.

Dynamic Audio Amplification Image

Dynamic Audio Amplification

DAA is our original amplification system. It’s been refined over decades to reproduce the source as-is while freeing the emotion in music. Compelling sound is achieved by tuning each custom part by ear, so the amp not only measures well, but sounds amazing too. Fast dynamics, wide frequency response, and an earth-shaking 200 W + 200 W of analog power are realized with a high-current drive and original amp topology. High current improves speaker control, extending driver travel to articulate the entire sound-wave while tracking each note with absolute precision.

Discrete amplification and original custom-built components for clear sound Image

Discrete amplification and original custom-built components for clear sound

Parts such as the High-Current Low-Noise Power Transformer and 10,000 μF high-current smoothing capacitors are fabricated to Onkyo’s exclusive specification. Two transistors on the voltage-amplification stage of each power amp circuitry boosts current for deep, powerful bass, while the non-phase-shift amp topology focuses sound through layers of finely resolved detail. And the extruded aluminum heat sink, which has heat-dissipating anodized coating, helps suppress vibration together with the 5 mm-thick aluminum front panel. This material is complemented by aluminum controls with a firm, fine actuation.

Built to limit noise Image

Built to limit noise

A number of measures contribute to excellent S/N performance. HDMI board features short signal-paths and well-finished grounds to assure clean potential. The SoC is isolated to reduce interference on analog signals. VLSC™ output-filter circuitry, meanwhile, erases ultra-high-frequency pulse-modulation noise. The result is clearer sound, improved instrument separation, and a large, airy soundstage.

Features 802.11ac Wi-Fi® and Quad-Core SoC Image

Features 802.11ac Wi-Fi® and Quad-Core SoC

A state-of-the-art SoC (System on a Chip) has power to process multiple tasks at once. The SoC evolves network functionalities while enabling stable connectivity and high-speed data transmission over 802.11ac (2x2 MIMO) specified Wi-Fi.

* Note: Some countries or regions have regulations that affect wireless signal strength and the use of Wi-Fi channels.

DPersonalized listening with My Input Image

Personalized listening with My Input
