TX-NR828

7.2 - Channel Network A/V Receiver

Live Life to the Fullest with an Onkyo Home Theater

The TX-NR828 gives you—the avid music and movie fan—power to make your home entertainment dreams a reality. From the aluminum faceplate through to the banana plug-compatible speaker posts, it’s easy to pick this as a heavyweight contender. Three-Stage Inverted Darlington Circuitry on all seven channels effortlessly handles big dynamic gains without distorting—as THX® Select2™ Plus certification attests—with musicality to render audio in extraordinary detail. On the hardware side, 7.2 multichannel pre-outs, powered Zone 2 outputs, and bi-amping capability grant the flexibility to customize. Eight 4K-ready HDMI® inputs including frontside MHL™ enable Dolby® TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio™ decoding. Audio processing comes courtesy of Audyssey MultEQ®, Audyssey DSX®, and Dolby® Pro Logic® IIz, while Marvell’s outstanding Qdeo™ technology upscales standard video to 4K. Need music right now? With a tap on your smartphone screen, you can serve lossless audio to your home theater—whether its stored on handset, NAS, PC, or online streaming service—using built-in Wi-Fi, or pair up and stream with onboard Bluetooth technology. Owning an Onkyo A/V receiver is not just about having big sound on movie night—it’s about maximizing the enjoyment of your daily life.
