Onkyo 7.2-Ch Dolby Atmos Ready Network A/V Receiver


Code: TX-NR838

Onkyo Sound is Emotion. Delivered

Destined to intoxicate hi-fi enthusiasts as much as serious film and game lovers, the TX-NR838 Network A/V Receiver combines pure analog power with the latest in high-resolution audio and video processing. This heavyweight receiver is built around Onkyo's acclaimed WRAT high-current architecture with a massive customized transformer and discrete Three-Stage Inverted Darlington Circuitry amplification.

Hi-fi credentials are cemented with Pure Direct Analog Path, a selectable mode that shuts down all digital circuitry when you're listening to LPs or other high-quality audio sources. Signals are routed via the phono or analog inputs to the amps for pristine sound that's completely free of digital noise.

Devotees of high-resolution, meanwhile, can stream their network-attached 5.6 MHz DSD or 192/24 hi-res albums using the remote app, while listeners seeking an instant fix can enjoy music from smartphone via built-in Wi-Fi® and Bluetooth. The TX-NR838 is also packed full of cutting-edge features for movies and gaming, with 4K/60 Hz-ready HDMI®2.0 terminals, HDCP 2.2 compatibility for future Ultra HD premium content, and the sheer power you need for a supreme surround-sound experience.
