    7 Channel Amplifier: The Onkyo TX-NR727 AV receiver features a 7-channel amplifier rated at 110 watts (into 8-ohms, at 20Hz-20kHz, with 0.08%, driving 2 channels). The AV receiver's amplifier employs WRAT, 3-Stage Inverted Darlington Circuitry, H.C.P.S, and Optimum Gain Volume Circuitry for dynamic, detailed, clear sound.

    • 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.
    • 3-Stage Inverted Darlington Circuitry: The AV receiver incorporates 3-Stage Inverted Darlington Circuitry into the front & center channels. This core Onkyo technology employs a low-NFB (negative feedback) design that makes the sound more natural.
    • H.C.P.S. (High Current Power Supply): Under the anti-resonant cover of any Onkyo receiver, you'll instantly notice the High Current Power Supply (H.C.P.S.) transformer. With its huge, isolated power supply design and high-capacity filter capacitors, it 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 Circuitry 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.

    Amplifier Assignment: The 7-channel amplifier can be configured in three ways to match your type of speaker setup.

    • Normal (7.2ch): The Onkyo TX-NR727 provides 7.2ch surround in your main listening area. You can choose either Surround Back or Front Height speakers (but not both).
    • Front Bi-Amp (5.2ch): The Surround-Back/Front-High speaker terminals can be reassigned and used along with the Front terminals to bi-amp the front speakers, providing improved bass & treble performance. When bi-amping the front speakers the receiver is limited to a 5.2ch speaker system in the main room (no Surround Back or Front Height speakers)
    • Powered Zone 2 (7.2ch + Zone 2): In this configuration, you can connect Front, Center, Surround, Surround Back (or Front Height), and Zone 2 speakers to the AV receiver. When Zone 2 is off, all seven channels will be used in the Main Zone. However, when Zone 2 is on, power to the two surround back (or front height) channels will be directed to the two speakers in Zone 2 and the Main Zone will receive only five channels of power.

    192kHz/24-bit DACs + 32-Bit DSP Processing: This Onkyo TX-NR727 is equipped with 192kHz/24-bit Burr-Brown DACs to decode and playback high-resolution recordings with less jitter and clearer sound. The receiver also employs a powerful and highly accurate 32-bit processing DSP (Digital Signal Processor) for better surround sound reproduction.

    PLL (Phase Locked Loop): PLL 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.

    Multi-Channel Decoding Formats: The Onkyo TX-NR727 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 Select 2 Plus Certified: The TX-NR727 AV receiver is THX Select 2 Plus 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. THX Select 2 Plus is specified for rooms where the screen-to-seat viewing distance is 10-12 feet and the room volume is 3,000 cubic feet or greater.

    • THX Surround EX: The THX Surround EX mode further expands 5.1ch sources for 6.1ch or 7.1ch playback.
    • THX Loudness Plus: THX Loudness Plus compensates for the tonal and spatial shifts that occur when the volume is reduced by intelligently adjusting ambient surround channel levels and frequency response. With THX Loudness Plus, home theater audiences can experience the rich details in a surround mix at any volume level.

    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:

    • Orchestra: For classical or operatic music.
    • Unplugged: For acoustic instruments, vocals, and jazz.
    • Studio-Mix: Suitable for rock or pop.
    • TV Logic: Adds realistic acoustics to TV shows.
    • Game: The receiver offers four different Gaming modes - RPG, Action, Rock, and Sports.
    • All Ch Stereo: Stereo sound from all speakers. Ideal for background music.
    • Full Mono: All speakers output the same sound in mono.
    • Theater-Dimensional (T-D): Theater-Dimensional circuitry takes the complexity out of conventional surround-sound setups and lets you experience the excitement of surround sound from as few as two ordinary speakers. Theater-Dimensional's unique multi-speaker modes let you place up to five speakers conveniently by the TV, for the most realistic virtual-surround sound possible.

    Direct Mode: 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.

    Audyssey Technology: The TX-NR727 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 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.

    • Audyssey MultEQ Automatic Speaker Setup: With the supplied speaker setup microphone, Audyssey MultEQ determines the number of speakers connected, their optimum crossover frequencies, and their distances from the primary listening position, then adjusts each automatically. The room's acoustical properties are then measured and corrected over the listening area in both the frequency and time domain. There is a threaded insert on the bottom of the microphone so it can be mounted on a tripod for accurate listening position placement. Up to 6 listening position measurements are taken to optimize the surround effect for a broad area. If you prefer you can also setup your speaker system manually.
    • Audyssey Dynamic EQ: Audyssey Dynamic EQ solves the problem of deteriorating sound quality as volume is decreased by taking into account human perception and room acoustics. Dynamic EQ selects the best possible frequency response and surround levels moment-by-moment as volume is changed. The result is bass response, tonal balance and surround impression that remain constant despite changes in volume. Audyssey Dynamic EQ combines information from incoming source levels with actual output sound levels in the room, a prerequisite for delivering a loudness correction solution. Audyssey Dynamic EQ works in tandem with Audyssey 2EQ to provide well-balanced sound for every listener at any volume level.
    • Audyssey Dynamic Volume: Audyssey Dynamic Volume solves the problem of large variations in volume level between television programs, commercials, and between the soft and loud passages of movies. Dynamic Volume looks at the preferred volume setting by t he user and then monitors how the volume of program material is being perceived by listeners in real time to decide whether an adjustment is needed. Whenever necessary, Dynamic Volume makes the necessary rapid or gradual adjustments to maintain the desired playback volume level while optimizing the dynamic range. Audyssey Dynamic EQ is integrated in Dynamic Volume so that as the playback volume is adjusted automatically, the perceived bass response, tonal balance, surround impression, and dialog clarity remain the same whether watching movies, flipping between television channels, or changing from stereo to surround sound content.
    • Audyssey Dynamic Surround Expansion (DSX): Audyssey DSX adds front effect speakers to improve spatial sound reproduction. Starting with a 5.1 channel system, DSX adds front Wide and/or front Height channels for better sound staging (although both wide and height speakers can be added, only one pair is used at a time). DSX also applies Surround Envelopment Processing to enhance the blend between the front and surround channels.

    Surround Parameters: The Onkyo TX-NR727 lets you tweak and fine tune specific surround sound modes to suit your preference.

    • Dolby Pro Logic II Music Settings: While listening in the Dolby Pro Logic II Music format, there are three further enhancements you can adjust; Panorama: (broadens the front stereo image to the surround speakers to provide a wraparound effect), Dimension (allows you to move the sound field forward or backward), and Center Width (allows you to adjust the width of the center channel).
    • Center Image: In the Neo:6 Music mode, the Center Image feature adjusts the output of the left and right channels relative to the center channel, allowing you to make the center channel more or less dominant as needed. This improves the image of the center channel, especially when the listener is off-center. Adjustment varies from 5 (nothing subtracted from the L/R channels) to 0 (L/R channel output is cut in half).
    • Pro Logic IIz Height Gain: The Height Gain Control in Dolby Pro Logic IIz enables the listener to select how much gain is applied to the front high speakers. There are three settings, "Low", "Mid" and "High", and the front high speakers are accentuated in that order. While "Mid" is the default listening setting, the listener may adjust the Height Gain Control to their personal preference.
    • Listening Angle: While listening in the Theater Dimensional mode you can adjust the listening angle to either Wide (if listening angle is 40°) or Narrow (if listening angle is 20°).

    Audio Enhancements: The Onkyo TX-NR727 receiver provides various audio enhancements to deliver a high-quality listening experience every time.

    • 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: The Music Optimizer function enhances the sound quality of compressed music files. The Music Optimizer function only works with PCM digital audio input signals with a sampling rate below 48kHz and analog input signals.
    • 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 Management: The Onkyo AV receiver offers Tone Control and Phase Matching Bass technology to get the most bass impact out of your system.

    • Tone Controls: You can independently adjust the Bass (30Hz) and Treble (20kHz) of the TX-NR727 from -10 to +10 dB.
    • Phase Matching Bass: Onkyo's Phase-Matching Bass optimizes low frequencies while preserving mid-range clarity. This means that powerful bass plays back with clear vocals; it doesn't overpower them.
    • Double Bass: 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.

    • IntelliVolume: With IntelliVolume, you can set the input level for each input (+/-12dB) selector individually. This is useful if one of your source components is louder or quieter than the others. This function does not work in Zone 2.
    • Maximum Volume: Use this feature to set the receiver's maximum volume level. This feature is useful to avoid turning the volume too loud by mistake. You can set the Max Volume from 30-79 (max), or Off (disabled).
    • Power On Volume: Use this feature to set the volume level when the power is turned on. You can choose between Last (same as the volume when the unit was turned off), Min (0), or 1-79.
    • Headphone Level: With this setting, you can specify the headphone volume (+/-12dB) relative to the main volume. This is useful if there's a volume difference between your speakers and your headphones.

    Audio Inputs/Outputs: The Onkyo AV receiver offers a variety of analog and digital audio inputs/outputs.

    • Assignable Digital Inputs: The Onkyo receiver is equipped with one optical digital input and two coaxial digital inputs. All three digital inputs are assignable. You can choose auto decoding , PCM, or DTS for the digital audio inputs. Auto will decode the signal in its original form (Dolby Digital, DTS, PCM, etc), PCM decodes the signal to 2-channel, while DTS decodes only DTS formatted sources.
    • Phono Input: The Onkyo AV receiver is fitted with a Phono input and ground terminal for connection of a turntable (MM).
    • Binding-Post Speaker Terminals: There are color-coded binding-post terminals for all speaker connections - Front, Center, Surround, Surround Back/Front Height, and Zone 2. The binding post terminals will accept bare-wire, pin-connectors, and banana plugs (single/dual). Use 4- to 16-ohm speakers.
    • Dual Subwoofer Outputs: The receiver is fitted with two subwoofer outputs to connect dual powered subs for extra bass.
    • Headphones: When headphones are plugged into the full-size 1/4" jack on the front panel, all the main speakers are automatically muted. However, the Zone 2/3 speakers remain on.

The front jack is fixed as the Aux input, while the six rear panel jacks are assignable to any of the other inputs. The dual HDMI outputs can simultaneously output the same audio/video signal to two TVs (video is output at the resolution supported by both TVs). The HDMI jacks can accept and switch 480i, 480p, 720p, 1080i, 1080p, and 4K video signals to a HDTV. The HDMI jacks will also support uncompressed standard or high definition digital video along with the following audio signals; 2-channel linear PCM, Multichannel linear PCM (up to 7.1ch), and Bitstream (Dolby Digital/DTS, etc.). In addition, the HDMI jacks are 3D, ARC, HDMI-CEC, Deep/x.v.Color, and Auto Lip-Sync compatible.

    • 4K Pass Through: 4K Pass Through allows the Onkyo TX-NR727 to receive ultra high-definition resolution video and pass the video signal to a 4K compatible TV or display monitor. This ensures compatibility with the latest super high resolution video formats. 4K pass through is supported by the receiver's HDMI 1-4 inputs and both HDMI outputs.
    • 3D-Ready: The TX-NR727 '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.
    • Deep/x.v.Color Support: The Onkyo receiver supports Deep Color and x.v.Color content, which can display a larger color range than standard-definition schemes. The result is a more lifelike, vibrant picture.
    • 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.
    • 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.

    Marvel Qdeo Video Chip for 4K Upscaling: The Onkyo TX-NR727 utilizes a Marvel Qdeo Video Chip for 4K upscaling and video processing. The Marvel Qdeo Video Chip produces quiet and natural video, free from noise and artifacts. Analog component/composite video signals are converted to HDMI, so you only need one cable to connect the receiver to your TV. 480i video from the receiver's component/composite video inputs and any HDMI video signal can be scaled to a higher resolution set in the menu. You can set the AV receiver to upscale analog and HDMI video to 480p, 720p, 1080i, 1080p, 4K, Auto (automatically scaled to the highest resolution supported by the display), or Through (no scaling).

    Convenience Features

    Advanced On-Screen GUI w/ Setup Assistance: The Onkyo AV receiver offers an on-screen (GUI) menu system through its HDMI output. The simple on-screen display combines text and graphics that make setup and other operations extremely easy. The Quick Set-Up button on the remote or Home Menu button on the receiver's front-panel puts menus over the program you're watching to switch inputs or change a settings without interrupting your viewing. The initial setup assistant takes you step-by-step through speaker configuration, source connection, remote programming, and network connection. 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.

    Multi-Source/Multi-Zone: The TX-NR727 offers three Zones; a multi-channel audio/video system in your main listening room (Main Zone), a stereo audio only system in a second room (Zone 2), and another stereo audio only system in a third room (Zone 3).

    • Zone 2 (Speaker-/Line-Level Output): Zone 2 allows playback of a separate analog source in 2-channel stereo in an additional room of your home. Zone 2 features line-level outputs and speaker outputs. This way, Zone 2 can be powered by a separate integrated amplifier (keeping 7.2ch playback in your main room) or by the TX-NR727's built-in amplifier (limiting the main room to 5.2ch). When powering Zone 2 with the receiver's built-in amplifier, listening modes that require surround back or front high/wide speakers are unavailable. You cannot power Zone 2 with the receiver's built-in amplifier, if you are bi-amping your front speakers. The volume of Zone 2 is controlled from the receiver when using the speaker outputs and from your add-on integrated amp when using the line-level outputs.
    • Zone 3 (Line-Level Output): Zone 3 allows playback of a separate analog source in 2-channel stereo in a third room of your home. Zone 3 features line-level outputs only. This way, Zone 3 can be powered by a separate integrated amplifier (keeping 7.2ch playback in your main room). The volume of Zone 3 will be controlled by your separate integrated amp's remote.
    Note: *Compatible Sources - Only Tuner, analog, USB, and Network audio sources can be sent to Zone 2 or Zone 3. 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. To playback Bluetooth audio in Zone 2/3, you must also have Bluetooth selected as your source in the main zone. *Incompatible Sources - You cannot select different AM/FM radio stations or listen to USB and Network content in separate Zones at the same time. Optical/coaxial digital and HDMI audio sources are not output to Zone 2 or 3. You cannot output any video signal to Zone 2 or 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.

    Preset Input Names: You can enter a preset name for each individual input source for easy identification. When selected, the preset name will be displayed. This feature cannot be used for AM/FM tuner, Network, or USB.

    Display Dimmer + Screen Saver: The display brightness has three settings; Dim, Dimmer, and Normal. 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.

    Timers: The receiver features a programmable Sleep Timer and Auto Standby function.

    • 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.
    • 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.

    • The AV receiver will enter Standby mode when the power of the TV is turned to Standby.

    Onkyo NR727

    Written By Greg, Nevada on Sunday, March 22, 2015

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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: Good sound. Good price. Good features.

    Cons: None so far.

    Music had never sounded this good from my Polk speakers. I love this receiver. I have it set up as 7.1 home theater system.

    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.

    Excellent Equipment - Right choice for me.

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    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.

    This is the first receiver I have ever bought and I am happy with it.

    Pros: It does what I wanted.

    Cons: Very trick to figure out how to get the TV and the receiver to communicate. But I would expect that is the same for any receiver.

    I bought this receiver about two weeks ago, I hooked it up and the receiver sounded great but it only lasted 2 days. When I went to turn it on, it would turn on for a few seconds that it would turn off. I sent it back to Crutchfield for a repacement but I have not gotten the exchage receiver yet.

    Pros: Had a nice sound.

    Cons: Burnt out in 2 days.

    Best receiver I've owned so far.

    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.

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    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.
