Jaw-dropping power: check. Superb video performance: check. Flexible multi-room entertainment, network music, and intuitive operation: check, check, and check. Onkyo seems to have thought of everything with their newest top-of-the-line A/V receiver. The TX-NR5010 comes fully loaded with features that home theater aficionados will use and love.
The 'NR5010's THX® Ultra2 Plus™ badge of certification means it can reproduce riveting, accurate movie sound that'll have you glued to your TV or video projection screen. It all starts with plenty of good, clean power, care of a massive toroidal transformer feeding the amplifier circuitry. This receiver's preamp and power amp sections are built on separate blocks for improved noise isolation. Advanced 32-bit/192kHz digital-to-analog converters help bring out the subtle details in your digital sources. You also get decoding for the latest surround sound formats, and some nice perks for multi-room setups, including an independent HDMI output for sending digital audio and video signals to a second room.
The 'NR5010 boasts two fantastic video processors that work together to deliver superlative images. The HQV® Vida™ circuit upscales analog content to 1080p. And the Marvell Qdeo™ chip adds a crisp finish to the signal. Nine HDMI inputs — including one in front for easy access — let you connect all your high-def equipment. Plus there's ISF (Imaging Science Foundation) video calibration to dramatically improve picture quality. Each video input source is independently calibrated to achieve the best possible performance from your connected HDTV. But movies, video games and TV are just the beginning.
Just plug your iPod® or iPhone® into the front-panel USB port to get the tunes started. This connection delivers a digital signal directly to the 'NR5010's high-quality audio circuitry, so your music sounds awesome. Use the Ethernet port or the optional Onkyo UWF-1 Wi-Fi adapter to connect the 'NR5010 to your broadband home network, and you'll get easy access to the music files stored on your networked computers. Then dive into thousands of Internet radio stations — you can enjoy entertainment from every corner of the planet. Your potential playlist just expanded exponentially. Want more? You can also stream music from Internet services like Pandora® Internet radio, Spotify®, Sirius/XM® Internet radio, Rhapsody® and more (may require registration and subscription fees).
Most home theater setups consist of five speakers and a subwoofer, but the nine-channel TX-NR5010 offers you more ways to use your receiver, even in multiple rooms. For starters, in your home theater room, you can drive a pair of back surround speakers to create greater spatial accuracy: get ready to duck when a mortar round screams overhead and explodes behind you. Or use an extra pair of front "height" speakers, so when the incoming rounds start to fall, you may want to take cover. If your main speakers have dual sets of connectors, you can re-assign two channels to "bi-amp" the speakers — doubling the power they receive is a great way to get every last ounce of performance from them. Even using seven amplifier channels toward your home theater setup, the 'NR5010 will have two channels left over for you to use in a second listening area — play music on a pair of outdoor speakers on the patio, while housemates watch TV or catch a favorite flick in the theater room. Or, go for a five-speaker/subwoofer home theater setup and use the remaining channels to power stereo speakers in two additional listening zones.
The 'NR5010 comes equipped with award-winning Audyssey® technology to automatically balance and equalize the sound based on your room's acoustics. Place the included setup microphone in as many as eight of your favorite listening positions, and the receiver calibrates your speakers for optimal sound. Audyssey Dynamic Volume helps you keep a lid on surprise volume attacks by commercial sponsors. Onkyo's InstaPrevue™ system lets you see thumbnails of digital video sources on-screen, taking out the guesswork of which HDMI source is plugged into what port. You also get a graphic user interface to make control easy and intuitive with overlays on your TV screen. And you can download a free app to use your iPhone® and Android™ devices as powerful Wi-Fi® system remotes. Requires connection to a wireless home network.
Your receiver powers your speakers and lets you connect and select your entertainment sources. But a great receiver does a lot more it ignites your emotions. From the passion of a favorite musical artist, to the crossfire of a super-charged movie soundtrack, to the intensity and immersion of a fast-paced video game, your receiver is the key to experiencing and enjoying it in full.
Great flexibility at the center of my home theater system. This replaced an Onkyo 806 receiver because of the additional power, internet connectivity, and ability to bi-amp the Magnepan 1.6 front speakers which are power hungry and 4 ohm. I compared this to comparably priced receivers from many other manufacturers and it came out on top for the features and audio quality.
Pros: The top Audyssey signal processing 9 channel power amp Flexible connection options
Cons: The documentation is difficult to follow
This is my first Onkyo Receiver. I purchased it because I was looking for the cutting edge and wanted it to be THX certified. The TX-NR5010 is all that and more. Word to the wise this unit is heavy but, how else are they suppose to put all these great tech goodies in one box? The amp has plenty of ample power, I am running a 9.2 surround setup with the option of going to 11.2 I am in awe when I watch a movie. Being that this is on the cutting edge, I have the abilty to go to 4K resolution. I guess this means I will have to upgrade my tv soon. The interface is easy to use, alot easier than my previous brand receiver. Did I mention this also comes with HD Radio, WoW I never knew radio could sound so great! I have the feeling I will now be a long time fan of Onkyo. Thank you Crutchfield for pairing us together.
Pros: Flexiblity, Power, 4K Scaling, THX, Toridal Power Supply, Easy to use interface, 11.2 capable, HD Radio.
Cons: None that I can think of.

Push-Pull Design (with 3-Stage Inverted Darlington Circuitry): The Onkyo TX-NR5010 employs an efficient push-pull amplification design originally created for Onkyo's much higher-end receivers. The TX-NR5010's push-pull amplification design uses different transistors on each channel to separately amplify the positive & negative halves of the waveform. Meanwhile, 3-Stage Inverted Darlington Circuitry helps reduce distortion at the output stage. Together with the push-pull amplifier design, the 3-stage inverted Darlington Circuitry shapes a clean, consistent signal to send to the outputs for ultra-low distortion & greater sound quality.
WRAT (Wide Range Amplifier Technology): WRAT is based around a low negative-feedback circuit topology that works to reduce signal noise and distortion across the frequency range. A "closed ground-loop circuit" design is employed, in which each circuit has a separate link to the power supply. This helps to cancel individual circuit noise and keep the ground potential free of distortion. High Instantaneous Current Capability (HICC) enables WRAT amplifiers to immediately cancel the speakers' reflex energy and instantaneously send out the next signal. The same high current better manages speaker impedance fluctuations, which can negatively affect performance.
Independent Toriodal + H.C.P.S. Transformers : Under the anti-resonant cover of any Onkyo receiver, you'll instantly notice the massive Toriodal transformer for the amplifier section and two separate H.C.P.S. (High Current Power Supply) transformers for the audio & video circuitry. Thanks to these independent, isolated transformers, the A/V receiver delivers the large amounts of power necessary for reproducing the wide dynamics of movie soundtracks and the detail and clarity of your music.
Optimum Gain Volume Circuitry: Optimum Gain Volume Control adjusts the gain so that less than half the amount of attenuation is needed, ensuring the signal never comes close to the noise floor. This protects the signal against noise, resulting in a dramatically clearer sound.
9-Channel Amplifier: The Onkyo TX-NR5010 features a 9-channel amplifier rated at 145 watts (into 8-ohms, at 20Hz-20kHz, with 0.05%, driving 2 channels) and two mono subwoofer preamp outputs. The 9-channel amplifier can be configured in four ways.
Separate Panel Construction w/ Gold-Plated Connectors: The TX-NR5010 features separate aluminum panels for the sides & front to reduce unwanted vibrations caused by internal resonance. Compared to a one-piece chassis design, this construction method offers greater rigidity and improved noise reduction. The Onkyo TX-NR5010 is fitted with gold-plated HDMI terminals, speaker posts, and A/V inputs for high-quality construction & sound.
32-Bit TI Burr-Brown DACs (Digital-to-Analog Converters): This receiver is equipped with seven high-quality 192 kHz/32-bit TI Burr-Brown digital-to-analog converters to decode & playback high-resolution recordings with less jitter and clearer sound. These next-generation DACs employ an advanced Texas Instruments (TI) architecture to achieve excellent dynamic performance & improved tolerance to clock jitter.
PLL (Phase Locked Loop) Jitter-Cleaning Circuit Technology: PLL (Phase Locked Loop) jitter-cleaning circuit technology reduces jitter by comparing the input and output phases of the digital signal and creating an accurate clock waveform. This enhances the precision of digital signal processing and noticeably improves audio quality. Jitter-cleaning technology works both for digital signals input via HDMI and for digital signals converted from analog signals inside the receiver itself.
VLSC (Vector Linear Shaping Circuitry): Conventional D/A conversion methods reduce digital pulse noise at the conversion stage, but can't remove it completely. Previously only found on higher-end components, VLSC (Vector Linear Shaping Circuitry) employs a unique D/A conversion circuit to overcome this problem. Data is converted between sampling points and these points are joined with analog vectors in real-time to produce a smooth output wave form. The result is a virtually noiseless, smooth analog signal based on the digital source to bring out even the most subtle of nuances in your music, movie soundtracks, and even MP3.
32-Bit Processing DSP: The Onkyo TX-NR5010 is equipped with a powerful and highly accurate 32-bit processing DSP (Digital Signal Processor) for better surround sound reproduction.
Multi-Channel Decoding Formats: The Onkyo TX-NR5010 AV receiver supports the following multi-channel (Dolby Digital, DTS, Dolby Pro Logic) decoding formats.
Note: Dolby Digital and DTS listening modes can only be selected if your audio source is connected to the AV receiver via a digital audio connection (HDMI, optical, or coaxial). To enjoy true 7.1ch Dolby Digital TrueHD and DTS-HD surround sound, the receiver must be connected to your Blu-ray player via HDMI.
THX Certified: The TX-NR5010 AV receiver is THX certified. Founded by George Lucas, THX develops stringent standards that ensure movies are reproduced in movie theaters and home theaters just as the director intended. From early design concepts to product rollout, THX works with its manufacturing partners at each step of product development. Every detail is meticulously mapped to the THX performance standards. And THX engineers spend countless hours testing and analyzing each product for sound quality, usability and interoperability. The result of this collaborative process is a THX Certified receiver, amplifier or pre-amplifier designed from the ground-up to present your favorite movies, music, and games in 5.1ch to 7.1ch surround sound loud and clear at studio reference volumes.
Onkyo Original DSP Modes: Onkyo's Original DSP Modes, combined with Dolby Digital/DTS/Dolby Pro Logic processing, produce more realistic, powerful sound effects for your movie and music sound tracks based on the type of content and your home theater setup. You can choose from the following:
Audiophile Listening Modes: The Onkyo TX-NR5010 offers two audiophile listening modes which bypass the receiver's tone & DSP processing for higher sound quality performance. In Direct mode, audio from the input source is output without surround-sound processing. This mode delivers pure sound with minimum sound quality adjustment and filtration. In Pure Audio mode, the display and video circuitry are turned off, minimizing possible noise sources for the ultimate in high-fidelity audio reproduction.
Audyssey Technology: The TXN-R5010 features a full package of Audyssey audio technologies for optimal sound quality. Audyssey Dynamic Volume offers real-time volume adjustment, while Audyssey DynamicEQ improves your system's surround effects during low volume levels. Audyssey MultEQ XT32 automatically sets speakers to suit your room's listening environment and the speakers' characteristics. The AV receiver even offers Audyssey DSX which adds front speaker effects.
Surround Parameters: The Onkyo TX-NR5010 lets you tweak and fine tune specific surround sound modes to suit your preference.
Digital Processing Crossover Network: The A/V receiver Digital Processing Crossover Network provides a separate routing system by splitting the audio signal into separate frequency bands optimized for each speaker driver. It provides a fine, three-dimensional sound field that extends each driver's performance to the uppermost. With its built-in time alignment function, this system also adjusts the sound shifting that occurs when there is a physical offset between sound drivers. At a digital processing level, it corrects this offset by delaying the related audio signal. Although this function is meant for speakers without a crossover network, it can also be used with bi-amped speakers.
Dolby Volume: Dolby Volume automatically adjusts the difference in volume levels which can occur between different contents or source components, freeing the user from having to make volume adjustments. Also, by adjusting the frequency balance according to the playback volume, it recreates the original source audio. Dolby Volume therefore provides comfortable listening, effectively controlling the volume level difference without unnatural changes in volume or sound quality to recreate the balance and nuance of the source audio.
Dialog Normalization: Dialog Normalization (DialogNorm) is a feature of Dolby Digital, which is used to keep the programs at the same average listening level so the user does not have to change the volume control between Dolby Digital, Dolby Digital Plus, and Dolby TrueHD programs.
CinemaFilter: Using the CinemaFilter you soften overly bright movie soundtracks. Movie soundtracks are typically mixed for a large theater (relative to your home theater) with lots of soft seats and thick curtains on the walls. Home theater settings often lack these high frequency absorbing wall treatments, making the soundtrack sound too bright. CinemaFilter accounts for this and for many movies sounds more natural at home.
Music Optimizer: While MP3 or AAC files may sound fine through the headphones of your portable digital player, the limitations of these files can be exposed when played back through a quality home entertainment system. This is because a significant amount of high-frequency bit information is lost during the file-compression process. To counter this, Onkyo has designed the Advanced Music Optimizer to compensate for lost bit information and improve the quality of compressed audio signals. This results in a clearer and more expansive sound. Also included in this technology is a loudness correction feature that further improves the audio character of compressed files. The Music Optimizer function only works with PCM digital audio input signals with a sampling rate below 48kHz and analog input signals.
Re-EQ: With the Re-EQ function, you can compensate for harsh high-frequency content, making it more suitable for listening.
Late Night Feature: The Late Night feature limits the dynamic range of Dolby Digital recordings. Limiting the dynamic range makes it easier to find a volume that ensures the quiet sounds are not too quiet and the loud sounds are not too loud for night time listening. This allows you to comfortably listen to without the need to constantly adjust the volume to keep from waking family/neighbors. The choices are: Off, Low, and High. This feature only works with Dolby Digital Encoded software and the depth of the feature will vary based on the individual software package.
Bass & Treble: You can independently adjust the Bass (50Hz) and Treble (20kHz) of the TX-NR5010 from -10 to +10 dB. You can also activate the Double Bass function in order to boost bass output even more by feeding bass sounds to the front left/right speakers, center-channel, and powered subwoofer.
Volume Setup: The Onkyo AV receiver provides the following volume settings.
Audio Inputs/Outputs: The Onkyo AV receiver offers a variety of analog and digital audio inputs/outputs.
Dual Core Video Engine: The Onkyo TX-NR5010 employs a dual core video engine with HQV Vida and Marvel Qdeo processing, along with ISF Video Calibration for exceptional reproduction of standard and high definition video sources.
Note: The receiver's second HDMI output is set to Zone 2, it does not support analog-to-HDMI conversion or scaling. Composite video inputs signals can also be output through the receiver's Component video monitor output (with scaling up to 1080i).
HDMI (v1.4): The TX-NR5010 has nine HDMI v1.4 inputs (8 rear/1 front). The front jack is fixed as the Aux input, while the eight rear panel jacks are assignable to any of the other inputs. There are two HDMI monitor outputs; both outputs can be active simultaneously and will pass digital audio and video. The 2 HDMI outputs display the same video signal and can be used simultaneously (the second HDMI monitor output can also be used for Zone 2 to display a different HDMI source). The HDMI inputs will support uncompressed standard or high definition digital video along with the following audio signals: 2-channel linear PCM, Multichannel linear PCM, and Bitstream. The receiver's HDMI circuitry allows the receiver to output an HDMI audio signal from its speaker outputs, headphone out, and HDMI out so you don't have to run additional analog or digital cables. The HDMI inputs accept 480i, 480p, 720p, 1080i, and 1080p video signals. The analog video inputs (composite/component) are converted to HDMI for transfer to the TV.
Front-Panel HDMI (MHL) Port: The front-panel HDMI port is designed for the connection of select mobile phones and other portable electronic devices using the new MHL standard. Simply plug your MHL compatible smartphone into the receiver's front-panel HDMI port using the HDMI cable that is included with your mobile phone. MHL allows you to display full 1080p video and still images on your HDTV with up to 7.1 channels of surround sound. By programming the A/V receiver's supplied remote control with the appropriate numeric code, you can use it to operate your connected MHL-enabled smartphone. Your connected smartphone is also recharged upon connection, and no separate power supply for the device is necessary while connected to the receiver. The A/V receiver is compatible with Android smartphones from Samsung, HTC, and LG (must support MHL standard); as of 6/7/2012.
3D-Compatible: The TX-NR5010's HDMI v.1.4 connections will accept 3D video from your 3D-ready Blu-ray player and output the video signal in 3D to your 3D-ready flat-panel television.
x.v.Color: The AV receiver supports x.v.Color, offering a wider color range than the current broadcast standard. For the x.v.Color feature to be useful, the entire video production chain must be compatible (camera-editing-format-player-display).
Deep Color: The Onkyo receiver also supports Deep Color which allows the color depth of video signals passing through HDMI to be raised. The number of colors that could be expressed by 1 pixel was 24 bits (16,777,216 colors) with a standard HDMI jack. However, the number of colors which can be expressed by 1 pixel is 36 bits with a Deep Color enabled HDMI jack. Since the gradation of the depth of a color can be expressed more finely with more bits, continuous color changes can be more smoothly expressed. For the Deep Color feature to be useful, the entire video production chain must be compatible (camera-editing-format-player-display).
HDMI Through: When enabling the HDMI Through function, regardless of whether the AV receiver is "on" or in "standby" both audio and video streams from an HDMI input will be output to your television, via the receiver HDMI monitor output. You can select between 3 HDMI Through functions modes.
ARC (Audio Return Channel): This feature allows audio to be sent from your compatible HDTV to your receiver through the same HDMI cable already being used to send audio and video to your HDTV. This eliminates the need for extra cables connected to your television. The receiver's main HDMI monitor output supports the ARC function, while the sub HDMI monitor output does not.
InstaPrevue: InstaPrevue technology provides a live video thumbnail of the available content on your devices connected to the receiver via HDMI. As a result, you can preview audio/video streams coming from up to 5 HDMI inputs (1-4, Aux) previously assigned to input selectors on your HDMI connected TV. Even with multiple components connected to receiver through HDMI, you can easily switch between inputs as their previews are displayed on a single screen on your television. You can even use the InstaPrevue feature for Picture-in-Picture. You can specify the number of preview thumbnails, as well as their positioning on-screen.
Note: If no video signal are present, the thumbnails will be filled in black. With 3D video signals, the image may not be properly rendered on the preview thumbnails of InstaPrevue.
Auto Lip Sync: The Lip Sync function can automatically synchronize HDMI audio and video that has gotten out of sync due to the complex digital video processing being performed by your HDMI-compatible TV. With HDMI Lip Sync, the audio delay required to synchronize the audio and video is calculated and applied automatically by the AV receiver.
A/V Sync Control: Occasionally, you may need to manually adjust the audio/video signals that are not properly synchronized manually. Typically when using a progressive scanning DVD player. You can correct this by delaying the audio; options are 0 (no delay) to 800 milliseconds, in 10 millisecond steps.
Front-Panel AV Input: The receiver features a front-panel AV input for easily connecting a portable device; there are stereo RCA, composite video, optical digital, and HDMI jacks.
Picture Adjust: Using the Picture Adjust feature, you can adjust the picture quality and reduce any noise appearing on your TV screen.
ISF (Imaging Science Foundation) Video Calibration: The Onkyo TN-NR5010 offers ISF (Imaging Science Foundation) video calibration for optimal video performance. The receiver has been designed to incorporate setup and calibration standards established by the Imaging Science Foundation (ISF). The ISF has developed carefully crafted, industry-recognized standards for optimal video performance and has implemented a training program for technicians and installers to use these standards to obtain optimal picture quality from the receiver. Accordingly, Onkyo recommends that setup and calibration be performed by an ISF Certified installation technician.
Network-Ready: The Onkyo TX-NR5010 A/V receiver is network-ready, which means you can connect it to your home network with a standard Ethernet cable and enjoy the music files stored on your computer or media server. If your network is connected to the Internet (broadband), you can also enjoy Internet radio.

Component or composite video connectivity ensures a stable, high-quality video signal output. The DS-A4 supports video output from the iPod video (5th gen), iPod classic (80/120/160GB), iPod nano (3rd/4th/5th gen), iPod touch (1st/2nd/3rd/4th gen), and iPhone (2G/3G/3GS/4S).
On-Screen GUI (via HDMI): The Onkyo AV receiver offers an on-screen setup menu (GUI) through its HDMI output. The on-screen display offers multiple language text, such as - English, French, Spanish, German, and Italian. If your TV is connected to the composite video or component video monitor output, you will need to use the AV receiver's front-panel display when changing settings.
Hidden Front-Panel Controls: The majority of the receiver's front-panel control are hidden behind a manual fold-down panel. This gives the AV receiver a very clean, sleek look.
Multi-Zone: The TX-NR5010 offers three Zones; a multi-channel audio/video system in your main listening room (Main Zone), a stereo audio/video system in a second room (Zone 2), and another stereo audio only system in a third room (Zone 3).
Note: *Compatible Sources - Only Tuner, analog, USB, and Network audio sources can be sent to Zone 2 and Zone 3. Zone 2 also supports HDMI audio/video sources. You must currently be listening to a USB device or Network audio source in the Main Zone to initially select USB or Network as a source in Zone 2 or Zone 3(then you can switch the Main Zone to any source you desire). *Incompatible Sources - You cannot listen to different USB and Network content in separate Zones at the same time. Optical/coaxial digital audio sources are not output to Zone 2 or 3. You cannot output any video signal to 3.
Whole House Mode: The Whole House Mode is useful when you want to simply add extra background music to your home party. This mode allows you to enjoy the same stereo music as the main room in separate rooms (Zone 2/3). The Whole House Mode selects the same input source for Zone 2/3 as the main room. During the Whole House Mode, stereo playback is automatically selected for all zones. The Main Zone & Zone 2/3 will play at the same volume level.
Name Edit: You can enter a custom name for each individual input selector and radio preset for easy identification. When entered, the custom name will appear on the display. This function cannot be used for the Network and USB input selectors.
Separate Source Audio/Video: You can listen to the audio of one input source while watching the video of another. This function takes advantage of the fact that when an audio-only input source (TV/CD,PHONO) is selected, the video input source remains unchanged.
Display Dimmer: The display brightness has three settings; Dim, Dimmer, and Normal.
Screen Saver: If there is no video signal on the current input source and no operation for a specific time, a screen saver automatically comes on. You can set the time (3min/5min/10min/off) until the screen saver activates itself. Once active, the screen saver will go off and the screen will return to its previous state if the AV receiver is operated in any way.
Sleep Timer: From the remote, you can set the unit to automatically turn off after as much as 90 minutes or as little as 10 minutes; choices are presented in 10 minute increments.
Auto Standby: The AV receiver will automatically go into Standby mode, if there is no operation for 30 minutes with no audio/video signal input.
Hybrid Standby: The Onkyo TX-NR5010 features "Hybrid Standby" mode to save energy and provide greater levels of convenience. Hybrid Standby Mode provides "HDMI through" functionality and maintains a local network connection while the receiver is essentially powered down. This allows the user to watch TV without turning the whole surround system on. Furthermore, when on Hybrid Standby, the home theater may be powered up from "cold" using the Remote Apps for iPod touch/iPhone and Android.
Optional Bluetooth Adapter (sold separately): The Onkyo UBT-1 Bluetooth USB Adapter (580UBT1, sold separately) lets you wirelessly stream music from your Bluetooth-enabled smartphone, portable audio player, tablet, laptop, or PC to the Onkyo A/V receiver. The Onkyo UBT-1 is fitted with a male USB (type-A) connector which plugs into the Onkyo receiver's USB (type-A) port. The Onkyo UBT-1 is Bluetooth version 3.0 certified and lets you wirelessly stream music from many Bluetooth-enabled devices supporting A2DP (Advanced Audio Distribution Profile). The Onkyo UBT-1 is equipped with apt-X, an audio coding technology that works within Bluetooth to wirelessly deliver CD-quality audio from your Bluetooth-enabled device to the Onkyo A/V receiver.
Note: Due to the differences in Bluetooth technology, some Bluetooth enabled devices may be incompatible, function improperly, or may not support all features when used with the Onkyo UBT-1.
Multibrand/Learning Remote (w/ Macros): The supplied wireless remote is a multibrand/learning remote. The remote is pre-programmed to operate popular brands of equipment including DVD players, DVD recorders, Blu-ray players, VCRs, TVs, Cable boxes and Satellite receivers. Also, the remote can learn up to 32 commands from infrared remotes of other components. You can sequentially operate Onkyo components via simple commands from a single-button press, using the included IR remote control. There are three Activities buttons (My Movie/My TV/My Music) that can be programmed to perform a sequence of commands with just one button press; each macro button can perform up to 32 commands.
HDMI Control: This function allows CEC-compatible components (Toshiba REGZA-LINK TV/Sharp TV) or RIHD-compatible components connected via HDMI to be controlled with the TX-NR5010. The AV receiver offers the following CEC HDMI controls.
Remote Inputs/Outputs: The TX-NR5010 contains RI Control, IR Remote, 12V trigger, and RS-232C connections.
Remote Apps for Apple iOS Devices and Android Smartphones: The Onkyo Remote App 2 for iPod touch/iPhone and Onkyo Remote for Android provide an alternative way to operate Onkyo network A/V receivers. A simple yet powerful Graphical User Interface allows the user to control input sources, adjust audio settings, and control playback across multiple zones in the home, from anywhere within wireless range.
I would recommend reaching out to an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. They should be able to help answer your questions about the build quality and circuitry of this unit. [ Jeff Feb 01, 2014 ] Staff
