Bundling Dynamic Audio Amplification with cutting-edge wireless multi-room audio technologies, 4K video support and 3D audio, Onkyo USA today announced two new 7.2-channel Network A/V Receivers: TX-NR686 (MSRP: $649 USD / $899.99 CAN) and the TX-NR585 (MSRP: $549 USD / $749.99 CAN).
The TX-NR686 is a 210 W/Ch (6 ohms, 1 kHz, 10 percent THD, 1-channel driven) A/V powerhouse that is now THX Certified Select ensuring theater reference level performance in your home. To gain certification, amplifiers must pass severe THX bench-tests covering every aspect of audio performance. Meanwhile, the TX-NR585 pushes 170 W/Ch (6 ohms, 1 kHz, 10 percent percent THD, 1 channel driven) and is ideal for first-time buyers or those looking to repower a system.
Both units feature support for the latest immersive soundtracks and give existing movie collections a new lease on life. In addition to playing DTS:X and Dolby Atmos soundtracks, the receiver carries DTS Neural:X and Dolby Surround up-mixing solutions. Each is cross-compatible with legacy sound formats encoded on Blu-ray Disc and DVD, such as Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio. AccuEQ Room Acoustic Calibration, which sets essential speaker conditions for optimal performance tailored to the listening space, is enhanced by AccuReflex technology. AccuReflex assures cohesive sound at the listening position by phase-matching directional and non-directional sound for soundtracks played though Dolby Atmos-enabled speaker systems.
