Pull out those movies, grab the popcorn, and get ready for the excitement of realistic home theater. Onkyo's TX-NR727 has plenty of power to rock your world, in stereo or 7.2-channel surround sound.

Bigger, more realistic sound with THX® and Audyssey DSX®

Want your home theater to sound more like the movie theater? The 'NR727 is THX Select2 Plus™ certified, so you can be sure you're getting the most accurate performance from your movie soundtracks. Plus, the "surround back" channels of this 7.2-channel receiver can be reassigned for use with "front height" speakers. This expands your home theater's soundstage vertically.

Onkyo's free remote app for Apple and Android

Onkyo's free remote app for Apple and Android smartphones offers easy control of network music sources (subscription required for some services).

Just as your movies and music will sound robust and detailed, movies and shows will look gorgeous in 1080p no matter the source thanks to the 'NR727's Marvell Qdeo™ processor.

Easy setup and control

You won't be intimidated by this receiver's set-up and control functions. Onkyo makes it simple to get your system up and running. The Audyssey MultEQ® speaker calibration system automatically makes adjustments to account for room dimensions and speaker placement. All that's required from you is to plug in the included setup microphone, place it in your listening position and follow the on-screen prompts.

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    I haven't gotten all of my speakers yet, but the 3 that I did connect to it sounded fabulous. I can only imagine the sound once I receive the other 4. I only did a trial run with the speakers, but I didn't place them in their final destinations. I will update my review if the site allows.

    Pros: Huge power and sound in every watt

    Cons: None

    First off amazing company and customer service. One of the few companies in the world that still truly care how their customers feel about the business and their product. This product is amazing. Puts out some powerful sound and barely had to make any adjustments to the sound after auto setup!! I would recommend this product to anyone!! And this company!!

    Sent it back the same day I got it, bought a Marantz

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    The initial setup was cumbersome. The unit wouldn't recognize my PS3. The unit wouldn't recognize the MIC input for the Audissy (sp?) set up. The software was lousy. After working for a few hours trying to set this up, I gave up, called Crutchfield, bought a Marantz. The setup on it was so smooth, it was def the right decision.

    Pros: none

    Cons: everyhting

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Quality product! Little challenging to set up and I count myself as electronic savvy but not infallible. Made mistake of disconnecting HDMI after powered on while rerouting cables...It messes with the receiver big time and it took me a long time to recover the video output.

    I am very happy with the features and especially the wifi and BT capabilities. Output is super!

    Pros: Sound and function -- top notch

    Cons: little sensitive to HDMI connections and disconnects while powered.

    Written By Wayne, California on Tuesday, June 23, 2015

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Easy to hook up and install. The auto sound balance worked better than other receivers I have programed. Remote was easy to program to control other devices. Plenty of power. Big bang for the buck.

    Pros: Has phono connection for those of us who still play vinyl on occasion.

    Cons: The easy install guide does not explain how to access the different programming aspects of the remote. I had go to the full manual on the included CD.

    Will recommend to a Friend

    Written By Chris R, Richmond VA on Tuesday, May 05, 2015

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Just received this TX-NR727 and it sounds great! I look at many different manufactures but Onkyo gave the biggest bang for the money on this unit with WiFi, phono connection and the powered 2nd zone and a 3rd zone as well. This meets all my needs. It sounds great and was easier to set up and use in both zones.

    Pros: Has many features that other manufacturers do not have at the same price point. Easy set up and use. Works great with Spotify. Has a phono connection. Powered 2nd zone. 3rd zone option. Lots of power! Sounds great!

    Cons: None yet.

    Great sound

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    The sound of this unit blows my old Yamaha out of the water. Powered zone 2 makes listening to my outdoor speakers a whole new experience. The surround sound is much crisper also.

    Pros: Powered zone 2. Ease of switching between components.

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    The onkyo tx-nr727 is an unbelievable receiver. I thought I might have a problem going from the tx-sr806 with more power then the 727 but I was wrong the 727 sounds clearer and louder then the 806 and the built in wifi is awesome. And once again Crutchfields service stands alone!!!

    Pros: Clear sound, easy to use

    Cons: There isnt any

    I love the power (rms) and the new features (Bluetooth and wireless connectivity, and streaming servixes). However I wish it was easier to access the Bluetooth feature. Overall, very good price and pleased with my purchase.

    Pros: Easy set up and powerful

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    I purchased this receiver with Bose 301 front speakers, Bose 201 back speakers, Cambridge Audio Mix sub-woofer and Definitive Technology ProCenter Technology center speaker. The receiver was easy to set up using the electronic manual that came with the disc. The sound is phenomenal for both surround and stereo. I am happy with the results. The technical support team at Crutchfield helped me decided on the sub-woofer and center speaker. Their help was the key to making this a system of which I could be proud. Thanks for the help!

    Pros: Ease of set up Sound Quality Channel separation quality

    Cons: Electronic manual made it a little more difficult.

    Onkyo receiver - NR727

    Written By Ralph, Boston, MA on Saturday, March 14, 2015

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    I wanted a receiver with BT features. Focused on Denon, Yamaha and Onkyo. SALES staff very helpful. After several questions and reviews of customer feedback went with Onkyo TX-NR727. At this point in time, I am very happy. Only had it just a week.. still learning and playing with all the capabilities that are available.

    Pros: Features, easy install, great price, very good support, easy to use, love the bluetooth

    Cons: Bluetooth feature cannot be in zone 2/3 alone but is required to be in main source also.

    Excellent receiver. Does it all for me.

    Written By Dktenor, Oak park, IL on Saturday, March 07, 2015

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    This receiver has lots of inputs for all my coonents: cable box, blu-ray, Apple TV, CD player, phono, cassette player. It has not only a zone 2' but also a zone 3 which I hooked up to desktop so I can digitize my analog collection (records and tapes).

    Pros: All my video can output to one HDMI connection. No longer necessary to switch TV inputs Zones 2 and 3 powered output Lots of inputs

    Cons: Very confusing and incomplete instruction manual for more advanced features. Had to call Crutchfield support to figure out how to get zone 2 working. Was. Simple fix that was not clear in the manual. Couldn't get my component/optical output from cable box to work. Ended up switching (moving existing wiring) to HDMI for this source. Probably possible to do this but couldn't figure it out from the manual.

    Verry Nice

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Very good receiver so far. Have never owned an Onkyo product before and so far it has been at least as good as some of the Denons I have owned.

    Pros: Plenty of Power Easy Setup

    Cons: Slight popping noise from surround speakers in one of the surround modes. On everything else it is fine, sounds like a common Onkyo problem.

    Close but almost perfect.

    Written By Kendall, Crestview, Fl on Thursday, February 26, 2015

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Great sound quality! It has plenty of power and the auto-eq did a great job with my room. I have this setup in my bedroom with the zone 2 powering speakers in my bathroom. The zone 2 is easy to use. Pretty straight-forward controls.

    Pros: Easy setup and operation. Powerful sound with great effects. Easy wifi and Bluetooth pairing and allows pandora to play through the Zone 2.

    Cons: Switching inputs and startup time is pretty long in comparison to my older TX-nr808. Sometimes I won't get an image after switching inputs and have to restart the unit. Crutchfield graciously swapped out my first unit when I told them of these problems. I even bought a new Blueray player and Hdmi cable to use with the new unit. I updated the firmware as soon as I got it. It still suffers from the same issues. It really is too bad. Sonically this thing is a beast!

    This receiver does everything it says it does. Easy set-up. All the power we need. The Crutchfield team we dealt with for service and delivery was excellent. We even went better we purchased a sub and center speaker also. All for a small craft room.

    Written By Patrick, Michigan on Monday, January 26, 2015

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    This unit has exceeded my expectations. Set up was really easy and the features work flawlessly. I currently have this powering Polk Monitor 70's series II which are very power hungry and this unit hasn't even blinked. I love that I have so many options to listen to music...off a hard drive, bluetooth using my ipod, or connecting on the network to my computers audio files.

    Pros: Lots of power Lots of useful features Lots of input options

    Cons: The only con I have is that the bluetooth connection option doesn't seem to be integrated very well. It works flawlessly but I actually have to walk up to the unit to push the pairing button as opposed to getting to it through an onscreen menu, yes, I am super lazy.

    Have only had receiver a couple of weeks, but impressed so far. Still learning to use its many features/abilities; one I have used is the speaker calibration system and it is fantastic. The Crutchfield Rep., did a fantastic job--if the receiver matches the Crutchfield service, I will be extremely happy.

    Pros: So far, great sound, easy to set up even for a novice.

    Cons: None thus far.

    total let down

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    This unit was easy to setup and sounded good. But the wireless was defective. It wouldn't even pickup any signals even though every other device in my household can easily find over 12. Called Crutchfield sending it back replacing it with a Denon S900W. Hope it works right out of the box.

    Pros: Might be a good recievers if it ever worked.

    Cons: Defective right out of the box.

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    I've had this unit for a few months now. I just now have managed to get around to fully setting it up. I have Polk speakers all around and a Sony powered Sub. My living room isn't that big. I love the sound! It's right on!! Now, everyone will find some features they use more than others. Here are my favorites. 1. The Iphone app!!! I can turn the unit on while laying in bed (wifi function!). Also select what Pandora station I want!!! ROCKS!!!! The app lets you control just about everything on the unit. 2. I set it up to turn on my TV at the time I turn on the receiver (not sure how I did this!). 2. Bluetooth from my phone! Even when I go to my office in the back of the house....if I switch to say my Bose mini via Bluetooth, it will allow my phone to automatically switch devices! No extra work. Turn on the Bose and the Onkyo will stop and the Bose will pickup the audio! BAM! I spoke personally with a rep from Crutch to select a unit, and my rep was SPOT ON with this recommendation. It was well worth the $$$. I don't mess around with audio.

    Pros: Sound and Iphone App.

    Cons: I use a USB flash drive also. It's take just a few seconds for it to recognize all the music on it.

    Onkyo TX-NR727 review

    Written By stevey, Georgia on Monday, December 22, 2014

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    I purchased this Onkyo for a system in the living room as I had purchased a higher end model several years ago and have been very pleased with it for the mancave. The price and performance of this system can't be beat and it has plenty of punch and a multitude of settings to get the sound you want. The only down side is the fact you have to either view the manual online or print it off. (onkyo needs to change this as it's not being very customer friendly saving a dollar or 2.) The setup of this is easy, the wifi works great and I would recommend this to anyone needing a new unit.

    Pros: easy setup, easy to use and great performance/sound.

    Cons: no manual provided and it's only online.

    Great

    Written By TonyO., North Carolina on Tuesday, December 16, 2014

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Set up was easy, even without a printed manual. I have this set up with Polk audio speakers and a Polk 10" sub. The 727 replaced a Yamaha 7.2 receiver with only 90w/ch and less features such as Bluetooth and Wireless. I noticed the difference right away. The Onkyo provided a greater sound environment with clarity and detail. I'm very pleased I made the switch.

    Pros: Great sound and depth, at a very good price even if I didn't buy it on Cyber Monday.

    Cons: Remote lacks in features and not as easy to use as my Yamaha.

    Pros: Great sound quality and great video up conversion from composite video. Works fine with Chromecast. I am powering the chromecast from the front USB port. Works fine with Harmony remote app.

    Cons: Cannot play slide shows and videos via DLNA. Just music. Remote is not very user friendly. Having HDMI handshake issues with my Mediasonic TV Tuner.

    Replaced a perfectly fine Onkyo HT-R520 from 2003 only because the sale made it irresistible. I don't know what changed in 12 years, but this new Onkyo TX-NR727 sounds noticeably better on the same Onkyo speakers. Its processor finds details in music previously hidden.

    Pros: Has 2 sub preamp outputs for my 2 subwoofers. Easy Bluetooth connects to iPod and iPhone songs and controls via remote. Front USB port lets me play my high quality songs directly from thumb drives. Can connect to net for firmware updates and online music services. Ample HDMI inputs. Comes with magical calibration microphone and on screen easy walk through of set up. Doesn't break a sweat. Remote is easiest I've seen to program.

    Cons: These are next to insignificant compared to all this receiver does wonderfully but if I have to point out anything: Remote not backlit like previous lower model. No Bluetooth button on remote. Bluetooth is selected by switching device BT to connect.

    Fine A/V Receiver

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Purchased the Onkyo TX-NR727 to replace an older Denon.AVR-789 The Onkyo was easy to set up and calibrate. It is being used in 7.1 mode with Orb Audio speakers, including powered sub woofer. The Audessey MultiEQ sound processing is excellent and the Onkyo automatically selects an appropriate processing mode (which can be over-ridden if desired) Sound is notably cleaner than the Denon. As well the receiver makes it convenient to tweak the tone settings, if desired. The availability of a phono input is a plus. The wi-fi connection, part of the initial set up menu, was near effortless and effective. The subsequent 'thank-you' card from Crutchfield was a nice touch.

    Pros: Fine sound. Audessey processing is very good. I would recommend the Onkyo TX-NR727.

    Cons: The instruction manual is available in pdf via download or on a supplied disk. The "advanced" section of the manual could be more clear in describing how to access the more detailed menus available.

    The receiver is solid and the setup was relatively easy. The reason I bought this was for the Internet access to my music and control with my iPhone. Unfortunately that is were the problems are. The receiver drops the connection randomly and the app is flakey and hard to use. You also cannot turn it on with the app. I have to turn it on with my remote and wait for it to get connected and then hopefully the app will find the device. They also need a tablet version of the app.

    Pros: Good sound

    Cons: Drops network, app functionality

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Excellent... i am very satisfied with this product...very easy to operate. the wifi feature i can not get enough of....my speakers never sounded so good. I am hearing sounds with such clarity, when i listen to music or just watching TV., Movies. The bass response is so profound, I was thinking of getting new sub woofer.....not now!!!!!! I use my Onkyo everyday. I discover new features that help me improve my listening experience, it seems like it is daily, there are so many features.

    Pros: easy of set up...... auto speaker calibration great feature.... eliminates the guess work

    Cons: I wish they would include a paper manual.It would be helpful to have in hand while experiencing and learning all the features! The remote does not have a light feature for night time use. I tend to have the room at very low light levels.

    I ordered this unit for my surround sound / music base - based on recommendations from Rocky at Crutchfield. I could not be happier. I am no young pup (10 decades) old and the set up went very smoothly. It took a little time just getting everything connected but it all worked out perfectly. The set up is quite intuitive and really easy to do even though this unit has a lot of really cool options and features. The sound is excellent and I am very glad I went with this unit. Thank you Rocky.

    Pros: Easy set up, a lot of features, great sound.

    Cons: Knobs to connect speaker wire are hard to turn if you have big hands. This is the reason I could not be a surgeon.

    Written By Mark D, TN on Thursday, October 09, 2014

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    I've had this unit up and running for about two weeks now. The TX-NR727 is a whole lot of receiver for a relatively inexpensive price point. In fact, it's $100 cheaper than the Yamaha RXV871 that it replaced. The sound from this Onkyo is far superior to the Yamaha. I watched "the fifth element" on Blu-ray and the sound quality was breath taking in 7.1 surround sound. The difference was night and day in comparison to my previous receiver! My music CD collection also sounds much better with this receiver. If you are Into audiophile music this receiver will not disappoint. I've listened to high resolution SA CDs and Blu-Ray Pure Audio disks in Stereo and 5.1 surround sound using this receiver and again was blown away by how much better they sound on this unit.i've previously used Sony, Onkyo and Yamaha receivers to power my home theater system and the TX-NR727 is easily the best of the bunch.I highly recommend this receiver to anyone looking to upgrade the quality of the sound in their home theater system. I fully expect to be using this receiver for many years to come.

    By the way-I found the receiver to be quite easy to set up, it probably took me about an hour and a half to connect all of my speakers and equipment and have the whole thing up and running. I've read that some people have had problems with the HDMI board and connections, however, I've experienced none of these problems so far.

    Pros: The sound is amazing! Easy to set up. Lots of HDMI connections.

    Cons: The remote control is not Backlit.

    Onkyo TX-NR727

    Written By Jim Kov, Albuquerque, NM on Tuesday, September 23, 2014

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Excellent sound, max flexibility with 5.1 sound, two additional zones, and inputs/outputs that can accommodate virtually any mix of home electronics gear,

    Pros: Number of input/output options. Sound quality Ease of installation

    Cons: Zones two and three can play only analog inputs, not digital. Required duplicating connections to get higher quality digital sound from my CD player and also allow it to be used for entertainment in Zones 2 and 3. Unit always turned on with Blu Ray input, although I wanted to have the default to be the Cable TV input. Crutchfield Tech Support did not have a solution. Discovered that receiver returns to the device selected for pass through when receiver is turned off. Set to last.

    Written By PerryM, Chandler, AZ on Sunday, September 14, 2014

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Excellent medium power receiver. Easy to setup using the on-screen display. Number of inputs/outputs are awesome, including HDMI in and out.

    Pros: Powered/Unpowered Zone 2, Unpowered Zone 3. Second HDMI output. Easy to setup with on-screen display.

    Cons: Any HDMI input component can not be directed to the powered Zone 2. Component selector button names are terribly small and are not back-lit making it impossible to read without excellent eyesight and a flashlight. (Reason for 4-star rating).

    Nice with challenges

    Written By Elston, Burien, WA on Sunday, September 07, 2014

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Sound is great. Really great.

    The usual challenges. Fortunately, this is my second Onkyo in a year (different model) so it was a little easier. But setup can be a challenge.

    To its credit, Denon does have good phone support.

    The remote control for both my Denon's has to be the worst control I have ever experienced. Not intuitive. Very small buttons.

    I was hoping that the application on my phone would work with both Denons. No way. I called support and they confirmed this

    I also hate using my receiver as the control center. With my Denon which it replaced, I could just turn on the TV and receiver and move around from DVD, TIVO, and Apple TV without messing with the receiver. Again, support told me I was expecting too much.

    I love the internet radio. The one downside is having to reestablish the connection when the internet hiccups.

    Pros: Good sound.

    Cons: Challenging to set up with no printed manual. Poor remote control.

    Onkyo has bad HDMI switching issues

    Written By Marc, Grand Junction, CO on Thursday, August 14, 2014

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    The HDMI board went out within just over 3 months of purchase. I live 4+ hours away from the nearest service center, and Onkyo expected me to pay for packaging and shipping even though it's covered under warranty. This is the second onkyo receiver I purchased and looking back I had similar issues with the first one regarding switching. Do your research with Onkyo and HDMI.

    Pros: Plenty of features

    Cons: Bad HDMI technology and bad warranty/customer service.

    This replaces an early Onkyo I but that actually caught fire. This has all the bells and whistles you could want. I was nervous giving up my direct connection to Sirus XM for a connection through the internet, but it's worked out fine with very little issues concerning buffering. And plenty of power. If there's a down side, the all the black on black. It's looks super cool but unless the lights are on in the room you'll have some problem seeing the control switches.

    Pros: Powerful, easy set up, internet is great.

    Cons: Like I said above, black on black is just too dark.

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    This unit is marvelously engineered! I began as a hifi nut in 1958 with mono Marantz tube equipment and have never been without at least hifi stereo ever since. This 7 channel receiver sets up the speaker balancing all by itself. Its 4 ohm speaker capability lets me use my vintage AR speakers and that was a necessary factor in selecting it. It is a big upgrade from a 12 year old 6 channel receiver that had no HDMI at all, and speaker balancing on that was a ticklish totally manual process. Its FM reception is good but its internet capability makes FM unnecessary.

    Pros: This unit is All-Pro

    Cons: None yet found after a month in use.

    Lost in translation

    Written By cm, Boston on Saturday, July 12, 2014

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Perhaps one of the few AV receivers with a phono port. 0.08 TDH - not too shabby. 110 watts per channel - nice. Excellent subwoofer sound. Ease of setup could be a little easier. Don't understand Zone 1 & 2. What is their function?

    Pros: Once the setup process is complete, I am learning to like the system. Seemingly enough RCA input ports. Speaker/room setup works flawlessly with the packaged mic. Love the surround difference between this receiver and the my old JVC. Still learning things about it, eg., the various sound functions (orchestra, etc.) still a mystery. Do they work for all the buttons?

    Cons: Setup for other equipment (remote codes) can be challenging and requires some effort and patience. Also, after setting up remote codes for other equipment there is an absence of full remote use which requires use of the OEM remotes for full functionality. Some of the HDMI ports seem sloppy/lose. Perhaps because of streamlining or subtle design look, the micro switches are difficult to see on the base unit. Too bad the NET functions don't show up on the front panel when the TV is off.

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    I have had Onkyo products for the last 20 years, but was without a system for the past 4 years. The equipment I had In the past was outstanding. I had a complete integrated separate system that was just out of this world for sound, then I went to an audio/video receiver because the amplifier I had was not made for a/v. That receiver was a great introduction to the world of surround sound. Because of my past experience with Onkyo, I did not hesitate to buy this new model, the TX-NR727. It provides 110 watts of awesome sound reproduction for music, movie, and television audio. It has plenty of HDMI ports for other devices to plug into, and I love hearing the sounds from the online game I play through it from my computer. It brings the game to life like I never heard it before as the game was made with surround sound audio. Overall, I give the receiver high marks for looks and audio reproduction.

    Pros: The sound this receiver delivers is awesome. I would give anything one day to add some really nice speakers to it one day.

    Cons: Setting up some of the devices such as adding optical cable to it from my computer or coaxial cable can be a tricky feat to do. It always wants to revert to the HDMI audio source.

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    I purchased this receiver as an upgrade for a Pioneer receiver which I purchased almost twenty years ago at about twice the price of the new Onkyo receiver. The TX-NR727 out-performs my older Pioneer receiver in many ways. The sound is clean and crystal clear, and when the unit is complimented with a powered subwoofer, it packs plenty of punch....enough to rattle your windows. I installed the new receiver in a 20X24 home theatre and media room and it fills it with plenty of awesome sound. The separation among the seven channels is quite impressive. If you are looking to buy an excellent home theatre receiver at a price that will not require you to take out a second mortgage on your home, don't let this one get away from you...buy it now!

    Pros: Easy setup. Clean clear sound quality. Relatively small footprint, considering the power within. Automatic speaker and channel-balancing feature with included microphone.

    Cons: Have not found any as of yet. I am simply enjoying a great surround-sound experience and I am still experimenting with all the aspects of what this unit can do.

    Minor problems--I hope

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Cannot update firm ware. Spoke to Onkyo tech yesterday and emailed photo of error message. They are working on problem. Like most everyone else, I detest having to print out a manual of around 100 pages. And, the Manual could stand a lot of improving. I have owned three Onkyo receivers and still have the last two. They don't wear out or break. Updating to keep up with current technology. Had my last (and still have) receiver around 15 years. After waiting 15 years to purchase a new receiver I hoped that Onkyo had done something about my biggest gripe. "No, still the same". My receiver is underneath my big screen tv along with other components and of course it does not get much light. I have to get on my knees and use a flash light in order to read the faint, small print on the various control buttons. What a pain.

    The remote is too small with many tiny buttons. They could take a look at the DirecTV control.

    Pros: All in all, still a great receiver. Does a whole lot of stuff that I will never use. Delete the manual pages for those items and the manual is reduced considerably. Easy enough to master. Set up is simple enough. Some things I did not see in the manual (yes, I did read it) but had to find out by experimenting with the remote. Still, would not buy anything else. Tried Sony and Yamaha receivers. They did not live very long. This unit has plenty of power for my JBL L100t3's.

    Cons: Manual, remote, problem with update for firmware. Need lighted buttons on receiver or at least glow in the dark, etc.
