The new TX-NR787 THX Certified Select 9.2-channel AV receiver from Onkyo USA is now shipping and carries an MSRP of $799 U.S.
A 100-watts-per-channel (8 ohms, 20 Hz–20 kHz, 0.08% THD, 2 channels driven, FTC) or 220-watts-per-channel (6 ohms, 1 kHz, THD 10%, 1-channel driven) AV receiver, the TX-NR787 is engineered for clients seeking coverage through 5.2.4 or 7.2.2-channel speaker layouts for Dolby Atmos and DTS:X soundtrack immersion, or for music fans wanting a 5.2 or 7.2-channel home theater with app-controllable powered digital and analog audio distribution to stereo speakers located in up to two additional zones.
Dynamic Audio Amplification featuring discrete non-phase-shift amps is proven by THX Certified Select for theater-reference volume within strict THX sound-quality parameters. Certification comes after thousands of independent bench-tests covering every aspect of product design.
As well as decoding DTS:X and Dolby Atmos formats, the receiver features Dolby Surround and DTS Neural:X up-mixing technologies. Both cross-compatible solutions work with legacy Dolby and DTS soundtracks, enabling 3D reproduction through any speaker layout, including those with height channels, from sources such as DVD, Blu-ray Disc, and selected video streaming services.
The TX-NR787 has universal pass-through support for 4K HDR video formats, including HLG (Hybrid Log-Gamma), HDR10, and Dolby Vision, as well as BT.2020 color space, 4:4:4 color sub-sampling, 24-bit video, 4K/60p video, and HDCP 2.2 via six rear HDMI inputs, Main Out, and Sub Out. A front HDMI terminal is intended for temporary device connections, and the Sub Out for a projector.
With the unit, Onkyo introduces AccuEQ Advance, a new premium multi-point room-acoustic calibration system that eliminates standing waves. Users can place the setup mic in three positions to assure optimal imaging across an expansive soundstage following an easy automated calibration process. AccuEQ Advance is enhanced by AccuReflex technology, which aligns the phase of directional and non-directional sounds for cohesive, comfortable, and well-organized object-based audio reproduction through Dolby Atmos-enabled speaker systems.
As well as analog audio distribution, powered ZONE 2 and powered ZONE 3 speaker outputs are serviced by dedicated DACs to share all digital input sources for simultaneous playback of single or unique sources in any or all rooms. Zone 2 line-output can share the multitude of content available to the receiver to a hi-fi system featuring a line-level input.
With 5 GHz/2.4 GHz Wi-Fi connectivity and support for a variety of network audio distribution platforms, the TX-NR787 can fit in with compatible network speakers and audio systems of almost any brand, allowing users to structure an intuitive multi-room music ecosystem to suit their needs.
AirPlay is included, while Bluetooth wireless technology expands easy steaming capabilities from a broad range of phones, tablets, and personal computers. Amazon Music, TIDAL, TuneIn, Deezer, Pandora, and Spotify are built into the receiver*6 for easy selection via the Onkyo Controller or Onkyo Music Control App.
