With the power to fill large rooms with THX-certified sound, this cutting-edge receiver is ready to integrate and distribute entertainment throughout your home. Access music on a PC, stream from Spotify, explore online radio, or connect your iPod /iPhone to one of two USB ports. You can distribute any of these various stereo sources to other rooms for multi-zone entertainment. With a total of 10 HDMI connections, this receiver converges HD content from all your components- even smart phone media via a frontside MHL/HDMI- and provides easy input selection with InstaPrevue technology. HDMI also enables intuitive GUI with overlaid Quick Set-Up menu. Video upscaling to 4K, Audyssey's seven-channel sound expansion, and room correction are all included. Sound quality is the best in class, with powerful WRAT amplifier, three-stage inverted Darlington circuitry, and discrete output stage components delivering an otherworldly entertainment experience.
THX ensures what you hear through this Onkyo is precisely what was recorded. Select2 Plus certification is specified for rooms where the screen-to-seat viewing distance is ten to twelve feet, and the room volume is around 2000 cubic feet. To achieve THX certification, the TX-NR717 had to meet the most demanding standards for home cinema audio quality and performance.
Onkyo network receivers, which are also wireless LAN ready, have access to the most internet music content services, including: Pandora , Slacker , SIRIUS XM , Last.fm, vTuner, Rhapsody, Spotify, and AUPEO!. You can even connect to DLNA servers on your network. Internet connectivity also makes firmware updates simpler than ever.
InstaPrevue visual port management technology makes source selection much easier. InstaPrevue provides a live video thumbnail of the available content on your devices connected via HDMI. You no longer have to remember that your gaming console is connected to Port 3, or your BD player to Port 1, for example- you can see what's playing and choose accordingly.
The front-panel HDMI port is designed for the connection of mobile phones and other portable electronic devices using the new MHL standard. MHL allows you to display full 1080p video and still images on your HDTV with up to 7.1 channels of surround sound. Use the receiver's remote to control playback from your phone as it receives a handy recharge.
The Onkyo Remote App 2 for iPod touch/iPhone and Onkyo Remote for Android and Kindle Fire provide an intuitive way to operate Onkyo network A/V receivers. Control input sources, adjust settings, and play audio stored in your device wirelessly (Android and Kindle Fire only) - even across multiple zones. The remote apps are available separately as free downloads.
You can assign its Front High or Front Wide channel outputs to power speakers in two other rooms of your home. You can play music in the main room and Zone 2- or, alternatively, Zone 3- at the same time, or play a different audio source in either room. Use your stereo amp to power one of the rooms and enjoy any audio source from the receiver in all three zones simultaneously, controllable with Onkyo Remote Apps for iPhone and Android phone, and Kindle Fire. Integrated house-wide entertainment is now a reality.
Surround sound technologies from Audyssey and Dolby offer you a choice of home theater setups. Audyssey DSX can expand 5.1 sources to incorporate Wide or Height channels, while the Dolby system adds Height channels. Dolby Pro Logic IIz can also expand stereo sources such as music or TV programs. Subtle directional and ambient effects are brought out through these 7-channel setups, making your sonic experience even more realistic experience.
(1) Audyssey 2EQ tailors multi-channel audio for your home theater speaker set-up by measuring three room positions and applying a resolution filter to the satellite speakers to correct for room acoustics. (2) Audyssey Dynamic EQ maintains a consistent bass response, tonal balance, and surround-sound effect at different volume levels, so you can enjoy the natural dynamics of your content regardless of the volume. (3) Audyssey Dynamic Volume automatically compensates for volume fluctuations in different audio content-for example, during commercial breaks-while optimizing the dynamic range.
On a compatible 4K wide-screen display, this receiver will upscale standard video sources, making your Blu-rays and DVDs pop with more cinematic detail than ever before. The versatile Qdeo video processor uses algorithms to enlarge to 4k the video you're playing, while also erasing video jaggies and feathering. The results are dazzlingly detailed images.
Hybrid Standby provides 'HDMI through' functionality while the receiver sleeps, so you don't have to fully power up to watch a Blu-ray or play a game using just your TV's sound. The receiver also maintains a local network connection when on Hybrid Standby mode, so you can switch the unit on at any time using the Onkyo remote apps for iPod touch/iPhone, Android, and Kindle Fire.
Have an Apple TV? Use it with your Onkyo Network AVR. It's all integrated, and it all works together beautifully.
The front-panel USB port lets you play MP3 and AAC stored in an iPod/iPhone, and MP3, WMA, AAC, and FLAC audio files stored on a flash-memory device, and you can use the system's own remote for track selection and playback. Your music will sound much cleaner and clearer, as the audio signal is transported in digital rather than analog form through the direct digital connection.
