Default Onkyo Announces 2013 Line of AV Receivers

Original Post

Onkyo has just unveiled three network A/V receivers-along with an affordable home theater package ideal for first-time buyers-for the 2013 model year.

See reviews in our AV Receiver Review section.

As the most powerful model on release, the THX Select2 Plus-certified TX-NR727 Network A/V Receiver drives through 7.2 channels equipped with Three-Stage Inverted Darlington Circuitry, designed for filling larger rooms with surround sound. The receiver offers Dolby Pro Logic IIz and Audyssey DSX upmixing, and Whole House Mode for distributed audio in up to three zones. Eight HDMI inputs include MHL support for 1080p video from smartphone and tablet, while two HDMI outputs are featured to connect a projector and TV display.

InstaPrevue video switching technology and an HDMI-powered user interface are included. Remote app control, meanwhile, extends across three zones, supporting audio streaming from the local network and making it easy to search for the albums, playlists, and internet radio channels available through the receiver.

Users searching for audio-video performance on a tighter budget may consider the TX-NR626 Network A/V Receiver. Three-Stage Inverted Darlington Circuitry - an amp topology designed for high-energy output with minimal distortion - is present on the front and center channels. The TX-NR626 is suited to playing multi-channel movie soundtracks and two-channel music. 4K Ultra HD video passthrough and upscaling - plus built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth technology - reflect the value of this A/V receiver.

With a useful amount of power, network connectivity, and streaming service implementation - along with provision for Bluetooth technology and wireless LAN via optional adapters - the 5.2-channel TX-NR525 Network A/V Receiver is a strong contender at the entry level. Six HDMI inputs, Audyssey MultEQ, InstaPrevue technology, and Hybrid Standby (which maintains HDMI and network connectivity) are practical inclusions to streamline, simplify, and optimize the home theater system for everyday use.

Onkyo also offers the HT-S5600 7.1-Channel Home Theater Receiver/Speaker Package. Newly compatible with the UBT-1 Bluetooth USB Adapter, the included receiver includes Dolby Pro Logic IIz and Audyssey 2EQ equalization for immersive surround sound. Multizone support via Powered Zone2 connections is also available on the powerful package. The eight-piece speaker set employs high-performance OMF drivers in the two-way front and center speakers, and a 120 W active subwoofer.

The TX-NR525, TX-NR-626 and TX-NR727 network receivers will have suggested retail prices of $499, $599 and $899 respectively, and the HT-S5600 home theater system will have suggested retail prices of $599.

The TX-NR525, TX-NR626 and HT-S5600 will be available at retail in April while the TX-NR727 will be available in May.

Onyko has one of the best specs for the latest technology and GUI. They are a bright sound and probably would be better for me at my age. I have gone Marantz

I end up with Yamaha.....
My 2002 Onkyo serve me very well for 11 years - but I desaded go with Yamaha, after reading Onkyo blog with hundreds of user complain about HDMI module fail for last few year. Maybe this new model will fixed, but I get a Yamaha - so far very happy. Connect my home network, can play any pics, movie and music from home media server, Blu-ray looks amazing and it has airplay also.
