High-res audio

Answering the call for more immersive sound

Ever look up wistfully at the ceiling in your home theater and wonder, “Why can't I get sound coming from up there?” Well, your daydreams have come true with the Onkyo TX-NR737 and Dolby Atmos®. With a firmware update, this receiver will be equipped with Dolby's latest surround sound breakthrough. It allows you to project sound from above your seating positions, for a new level of immersion and realism with movie soundtracks. Dolby Atmos is just the beginning of this receiver's features: 4K upscaling with Marvell Qdeo™ video processing, HDMI 2.0 connectivity, wireless music options, and seven channels of slammin' power make this receiver an excellent upgrade to your old receiver or a great starting point for budding home theater lovers.

Dolby Atmos adds a new dimension to sound

Dolby's latest surround sound technology was designed to bring a new level of immersion to your home theater. By employing in-ceiling speakers or special Atmos enabled upward-firing speakers that reflect sound off your ceiling, Dolby Atmos offers a greater sense of space for sound that's more three-dimensional. Already at work in film production studios and many movie theaters, Dolby Atmos represents a huge step in putting more "theater" into your home theater.

The TX-NR737 lets you add two overhead or up-firing speakers (sometimes called "height" or "top" speakers) to a conventional five-channel system — this is referred to as a 5.1.2 Dolby Atmos setup. You can use either one or two subwoofers with this setup.

Wi-Fi and Bluetooth offer lots of music choices

Music is increasingly delivered from sources other than shiny discs. Smartphones, tablets, computers, Internet radio, and subscription services offer a wealth of listening options. You can take advantage of all of them with the TX-NR737. Stream music from smartphones and tablets over Bluetooth, to play audio from any app through your home theater speakers. If you have a digital music library stored on a networked PC or storage drive, Wi-Fi lets you play those tunes over your home network. There's also built-in support for Spotify®, Pandora® Internet radio, SiriusXM, and free Internet radio streams via TuneIn radio. With so many choices, you'll never have trouble finding something to listen to. Plus, Onkyo's Music Optimizer helps restore musical enjoyment to compressed files and Bluetooth streams.

Onkyo's free remote app for Apple and Android

Listen to music from online music services using Onkyo's free remote app for Apple and Android smartphones.

Emphasis on sound

The 'NR737 is about more than just convenience and versatility. Onkyo has always put a premium on sound quality. This receiver features their Wide Range Amplifier Technology, which provides plenty of current to ensure smooth sound even during large swings in dynamics. This reduces distortion while ensuring music and movie soundtracks have plenty of punch. Phase-Matching Bass Enhancement keeps low-frequency tones from muddying the midrange, so you get plenty of deep bass while vocals and dialogue remain clear and detailed. And if you've downloaded high-resolution music from sites like HDtracks, you'll appreciate this receiver's ability to decode high-res files like FLAC, WAV, Apple Lossless, and even DSD.

Add music to a second and third room

If you'd like to add speakers to an adjoining bedroom, kitchen, or porch, you can plan ahead with the TX-NR737. There are powered Zone 2 outputs, so you can connect an additional set of speakers for use in another room. There are also line-level Zone 3 outputs, so you can send audio signals to a separate receiver in a third room — a great use for your old receiver when you upgrade to the 'NR737. While the kids enjoy a movie on cable in the home theater, you can chill out on the porch and listen to music from Spotify® and still have different music playing in another room. There's also a second HDMI output for use in large rooms with both a projector and a TV.

Simple setup and control

The tiny microphone that's included with the TX-NR737 is your key to properly calibrated home theater sound. Plug it into the front of the receiver, and let Onkyo's AccuEQ optimize your system for your room and speaker setup. This ensures you'll get the best possible sound in your room, even if its odd layout forces you to place speakers in less than ideal locations. Before you start exploring this receiver's features, be sure to download the Onkyo remote app to your Apple® or Android™ smartphone. It offers easy control of the receiver's most important functions, as well as giving you instant access to Internet radio and other online music choices.

    Definitely an upgrade

    Written By Eno, Georgia on Tuesday, November 24, 2015

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    This receiver is as a very good receiver for my purposes. I am not an audiophile, just a music lover and a Netflix lover. I have not owned very many products like this. My friend gave me an old Denon that I had been using for a while. We moved into a new house that had speakers in the ceiling and on the screened in porch. I needed a dual zone 7.2 channel receiver to drive the system. I saw this one and went for it. It sounds really good with a surround sound set of Onkyo speakers and subwoofer I found online. I am very happy with the sound. It was a little hard to figure out how to activate zone 2. The instructions are not very clear on that but a phone call to Crutchfield resolved that issue. I am still not able to log into my Sirius/XM internet account not matter what I try. Sirius blames it on Onkyo and Onkyo blames it on Sirius. The Crutchfield rep explained to me that every time Onkyo fixes the firmware to fit Sirius, Sirius changes it again. I was told a new firmware version is in the works. Who knows? I am disgusted with Sirius so I have changed to Spotify which I discovered on the receiver. I like it better.

    So, the receiver is a good buy. I don't know how it stacks up to all the other comps.

    Pros: Great sound. Dual zones.

    Cons: Instructions are weak. Sirius interface is lousy.

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    After doing research and having owned both Onkyo and Integra products I decided to purchase the TX NR-737 from Crutchfield. I've purchased many products from them over the years and have always had excellent service. The receiver had all the options I needed and the amplifiers power is perfect. I was replacing a few year old Integra DTR 6.5, so I wasn't sure I would have the same power. The new receiver has the right amount of power for the Mirage speakers it is paired with and delivers clean sound. Very happy with my purchase and follow up from Crutchfield.

    Pros: The display is great. The HDMI connections make for an easy set-up. The Bluetooth connectivity is a nice touch.

    Cons: I wish the remote had a back-light display like my previous receiver.

    I bought an onkyo system in 2009 from Crutchfield. It worked great for a while. It tore up the first time and it was under warranty but still had to pay for shipping. It tore up again a few months ago. Will NOT buy another onkyo product again.

    Written By Wayne, Ohio on Tuesday, November 03, 2015

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    I bought this product for a couple of reasons: it was offered at a closeout model price and it was an THX Onkyo receiver. Like most home theater receivers on the market, It has lots of features that I will probably never use. I have purchased Onkyo receivers exclusively for about 20 years. Starting off with my first rack system, I have watched home entertainment electronics downsize over the years to the point that a single component offers the best quality and saves space.

    Pros: Menu system projected on TV, making initial setup quick and easy; Bluetooth; Networking ready; ACCeq setup for the sound balance was fast and effortless

    Cons: I have only had the unit for about a month, No problems so far

    Great product - Onkyo TX-NR737

    Written By BrentJ, New Jersey on Saturday, October 31, 2015

    This is a great buy. Set up was really fast. I used the automatic speaker calibration which worked well but I ended up adjusting the the subwoofer a little higher. I use with 5 in-ceiling speakers plus subwoofer. I have cranked it up and the sound is really clear at all volumes. All of features work well including the app which I have been using on an iPhone 6s. I have used the Bluetooth in conjunction with iTunes and hooked up my Pandora and TuneIn Radio accounts on the receiver itself. This is my second Onkyo receiver and this one sounds better than my past one. I have an older plasma TV and use an external HDMI to analog converter to the TV monitor which allows me to take advantage of the on-screen programming feature. I am sure that there a million features that I am not using. Nevertheless, I am a satisfied customer and give this product a thumbs up.

    Pros: Customization features, bluetooth, iPhone app, great sound.

    Cons: none

    Lot of Value

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    It produces an incredible, clean sound, that brings my home theater and music to life with plenty of power. I love that it has a phono, plus modern inputs, (bluetooth, USB and wireless) capabilities. Only down side is the remote is out dated in design and not compatible with my FIOS DVR so I have to use multiple remotes. Which is why this is 4 Star review.

    Pros: Redundant to my review but.... Pro - It produces an incredible, clean sound, that brings my home theater and music to life with plenty of power. I love that it has a phono, plus modern inputs, (bluetooth, USB and wireless) capabilities.

    Cons: Remote is out dated in design and not compatible with my FIOS DVR so I have to use multiple remotes.

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    This unit is the brains of my 5.1.2 Atmos surround used in my home theater. I purchased this unit on suggestion of my Crutchfield "helper" and it does not disappoint. Upgraded the software online and all is well for Atmos. Using provided tuning mic made set up easy and optimized for where my wife and I sit in the theater. Pushes 4 ceiling, 2 tower, sub (later to add second) and center speaker with ease and evens them all out (due to mic setup) to make listening experience simply awesome.

    Pros: Easy setup, control, sound, 'smart' features.

    Whole Home 3 Zone System

    Written By George, Nebraska on Wednesday, October 21, 2015

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    I use this receiver with my 14 speaker whole home sound system. I do not use it for video nor surround sound.

    I bought it because I needed audio equipment for my new house which has 14 speakers grouped into three zones. For two zones (4 speakers in two locations), I needed to control the volume with the receiver. The third zone (10 speakers in six rooms) has volume controls in each room. This receiver met these requirements perfectly. It powers and controls the volume in two zones. The third zone is powered by a Niles SI-2150 amp connected to the receiver's zone 3 output.

    The power and audio source for each zone can be controlled independently. The volume of zones 1 and 2 can also be controlled indecently.

    The receiver's WiFi and internet music works great. It readily connected to my Pandora account.

    The android app works great. It controls each zone. With Pandora it displays the song playing.

    Pros: Three Audio Zones. WiFi Pandora Android App

    We moved int o a house that had an entire AV set-up already in place. It had good sound and was easy to use. We started having difficulties with the sound coming on when the unit was turned on. We were given an option of this new receiver and we are very pleased we went in this direction. The sound quality is something we never heard from our old receiver. It was easy to set-up and easy to control.

    Good feature set for the price

    Written By KCB, California on Tuesday, October 06, 2015

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Caveat: I am not an audiophile, and this is the first receiver I have purchased in over 10 years. So some of the following may reflect my lack of knowledge.

    The receiver generally works as advertised, I am satisfied with the sound it products. I bought this mainly because I wanted a system that could drive the home entertainment system in my living room (e.g., TV surround sound) and have a separate powered speakers for the rest of the house (dining room, kitchen, patio). I connected the Zone 2 powered output to a Niles passive switch box to feed the ceiling speakers in the rest of the house.


    Cons: Initial set up was confusing. I figured it out (with good tech support from Crutchfield), but manual does not make it clear. To get sound in Zone 2, go through steps to select Z2, select input for Z2, then manage volume for Z2 separately from main zone. Easy after I did it, but took a while to figure out how; the manual is less than clear. 2nd issue is audio from STB delivered via HDMI to Onkyo receiver will not play in Zone 2. Can't play music from STB in whole house.

    Just what the Dr ordered!

    Haven't used all the features yet, but setup was easy and is performing better than expected! Using in our movie theater and music in two other zones. Looking forward to testing the Bluetooth and WIFI settings on other speakers.

    Pros: Easy to setup and use. Clean power pushing atmos home theater.

    Cons: None

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    I set up the receiver with very little problem, paired with a DefTech 5.1 system. The manual included in the box was for a different Onkyo receiver, so the back panel was set up slightly differently. Not really a big deal though as plugging in the various wires was easy. The auto-calibration feature doesn't seem very good; it ended up adjusting my sub way down, to the point where there was no bass, so I had to manually adjust the setting to bring it back up. Paired my computer and phone via bluetooth without a problem, and the sound is great.

    Great features and sound

    Written By Nick, Albany, NY on Tuesday, September 22, 2015

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    This performs well compared with the old Sony's I've always used. I switched to the Onkyo because of the upconversion from Component/Composite to HDMI. Setup was very nice and the included color coding labels will be nice for changes down the road. This system is paired with a Definitive Technology ProCinema 600 set. The performance is very nice for both music and movies. I haven't setup with Atmos yet, but may down the road.

    One review mentioned the long startup time - this is definitely true, but once it's on, it's great. I especially like the CEC functionality which switches inputs etc as necessary. This makes use for my wife and son much easier. I am however surprised at needing to operate at 50 (50% power) to hear things well. Other receivers in the past have operated in the lower, 30% range. I expected, given the power output of this unit, it would operate in a similar range (the speakers have a ~89dB sensitivity).

    All and all, it is a solid buy.

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    So far this has been a very good replacement for my Denon AVR 900x. The wired connectivity can get about anything you have hooked up and the wireless/wired connections to the network work well. It is much easier to use than my Denon as far as direct access on the front of the receiver as well.

    Pros: Loud and clean reproduction. Well shielded even with my left channel less than 3' away. Easy to use with or without the remote. Clear connections on the back.

    Cons: Remote is pretty weak for a higher end receiver. Looks like a plastic kids toy.

    Good sound quality, no WiFi, mult problems

    Written By jms, Washington on Wednesday, September 16, 2015

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    This receiver/amp does a very good job of taking HDMI inputs and putting out very high quality, very clear sound through the attached speakers. Comparing it to my older Sony amp, the sound difference is incredible. Music comes through very clear, same with movie dialogue, etc. I've also used it to stream Pandora via a wired LAN connection, and it too sounds great.

    However, there are some significant shortcomings to this unit.

    Pros: Good HDMI audio, streams via wired LAN

    Cons: No WiFi. Called Crutchfield tech support, we went over all the settings, decided it's a defective unit. Replacement unit also doesn't do wireless. Onkyo tech support kept me stuck in a voice menu loop, no human. Optical digital audio in has a noticeable delay. Remote control is very unintuitive to use for anything other than switching inputs or adjusting volume. PDF user manual has no index or table of contents.

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    I've been using this Onkyo for about a month now and it is fantastic. I've got it bi-amping some mid-quality speakers and I doubt I've ever heard music with better sound quality. Because it can drive 7.1 channels, I've got 4 speakers plus a woofer going which makes the sound super surreal. I keep the volume really low, between like 25 and 35, and cannot believe how much I hear. This is a really solid reciever. The wifi capabilities mean I don't have run things like pandora through a phone or anything either, which is super nice.

    Pros: Excellent sound quality Solid features regarding input sources

    Cons: Doesn't have a detachable power cable.

    Written By RalphD, Massachusetts on Saturday, August 29, 2015

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    We returned this unit after a few days and were disappointed overall with its performance. For about the same money, the Denon S910W is a much better choice (at least for us). 2 deal breakers for us: 1) The Onkyo is really Apple unfriendly vs. Denon. The USB port on the Onkyo doesn't recognize Apple products. This is in the specs, but I guess we didn't look close enough before buying. 2) When using an internet audio source or bluetooth, you cannot select a different video source. So, say you want to listen to Sirius/XM and watch the game.....forget it. That's crazy and the Denon allows complete audio/video selection control. Also, the zone 2 control seems easier to navigate for us....not a big deal, but it's a nicer interface. We're a lot happier with the performance of the Denon.

    As usual Onkyo packs all kinds of great features and quality into their tuner/receivers (this is my 3rd unit purchased over the last 20 years), and prices them reasonably, especially when you connect with a sale at Crutchfield! With 7.2 surround, Dolby Atmos, Bluetooth and WiFi they have done it again.

    Pros: 110 watts per channel, 7.2 surround, Dolby Atmos, WiFi, Bluetooth, 7 HDMI inputs, Zone 2 & 3 capability, AccuEQ room calibration, and 2 sub woofer outputs.

    Cons: Once again, trying to set up the unit and decipher the Onkyo manual is a test of patience. And the more they design their components to be totally electronic and automatic the harder it becomes to set up a system properly. But once done - a great sound system for sure.

    Great receiver, terrible app

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    This receiver has been mostly great. I love having the ability to expand into three different zones for music purposes. The only problem with this is the Onkyo app. It was designed to make the user experience much easier and efficient, but poor development has only led to frustration. The app fails to connect to the receiver (via Wifi) half of the time and takes a long time to connect whenever it does happen to find the receiver. Once it has connected, the layout is very user friendly and easy to navigate. I personally use Spotify to stream music. A little under a month ago, I was able to use the Spotify app and just connect to the receiver through that interface. I guess there was an update to the Onkyo app and now I have to go through that app to play Spotify. The Spotify interface within the Onkyo app is terrible and works less than half of the time. I have since ditched trying to use the Onkyo app and use an Apple Airport Express to stream my music.

    Pros: Great features 3 Zones

    Cons: Terrible App

    The NR737 has every feature I wanted including 7.2 channels, THX, Dolby Atmos, Zone2 & 3 and plenty of wattage power. I think at this price its probably the best bargain on the market.

    Pros: 7.2 channel, easy to use remote THX, dolby atmos, high wattage

    Cons: no 4k upgrading

    New Receiver for wife

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Replaced a Samsung Blu Ray receiver and speaker set with this because the Samsung was flaking out and switching inputs randomly. I have an Onkyo 709 for the downstairs set up and after calling Samsung and Crutchfield about the problems with that receiver I decided to jump on a real surround receiver. I already knew what I was getting and am well pleased with the product in all areas. The price was less than I paid for my 709 and I expect the same service and reliability out of the 737, which is basically the same as the 709 with updates to output versatility. It sounds so much better than what was in place and the Samsung has been relegated to doing duty as a blu ray and netflix player. Thanks to the Crutchfield team!

    This product has exceeded our expectations as the remote is very user friendly. We were able to enter the codes for the Blue Ray, Cable (Direct-TV) ,hooked up the Phono Record player! It has great sound and the menus are very easy to read. Just make sure that you understand the speaker logic with setting your speakers to the right setting.....meaning THX, DOLBY, or NEO , etc......but am very pleased with the outcome! Thanks Crutchfield as your site also has good reviews about the products!

    I'm very impressed with this receiver. I have an older Onkyo Receiver but the difference between them is remarkable. I always liked the THX features and it's reliable approach. This is a very solid receiver and the sound is amazing. I'm looking for purchase in the near future a set of speakers Dolby Atmos enabled and download the firmware for it. I'm already very happy with my receiver.

    I've been watching the Onkyo receivers along with the Pioneers and Denon. The price was right on this model for me and does everything I ask it. Easier to set up than I expected and works very well with my Samsung TV. I had to use a workaround for the automatic hdmi switching but no big deal. The Onkyo app is very useful and easy to use. Buy with confidence.

    Pros: Easy hook up Great app

    Cons: Have to use TV/CD setting for both cable box and TV. (This is the work around)

    Might send it back

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Read every review, Crutchfield. The receiver cannot be as powerful as advertised. It is finicky about when and how it works, clicking on and off at will. No lighted selectors on unit, the remote is small and not up to par with my 24 yr old Sony. Good luck programing remote. Owners manual, basic, is poorly written and advanced manual has to be viewed on line or downloaded. It is big, needs lots of space. Connected easily to wifi but the menu for preloaded stations is difficult to maneuver. It was a good price and that is why I am giving it a little time. Some of the difficulties may be my, "remember the good old days attitude." Regardless, I work with computers everyday and still found this receiver annoying to setup and operate. When I called for technical support the tech simply did what I did and opened the "advanced" manual online. After ONE HOUR and TWENTY SIX minutes the tech offered to give me a return authorization # even though we did not know the receiver had any problems. He and I just did not know how to operate the receiver. Called back later and another tech figured it out with me. If you call for help ask for someone who has experience with this unit.

    Pros: Price, connected to wifi easily and tech help was patient

    Cons: See above

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    I had to replace my Marantz as it had an odd POP noise at times. I read online it was common. I feel like buying a Marantz is like buying a BMW; the best looking receiver, just keep your fingers crossed it doesn't break. I'm a previous Onkyo owner (3rd one now) and only had good luck. I should have stuck with it. One thing this has that the Marantz didn't is a viewable volume level. The Marantz only has a tiny circle which you cannot see from your media chairs (or couch). The sound is also far superior here as I'm getting far better imagine for things like a helicopter flying over. I run a full Definitive Technologies 8080 setup and the sound is now perfect!

    Pros: Easy to read volume. Far superior sound. Onkyo quality. Easy setup.

    Cons: None so far.

    Onkyo TX-NR737 utopia!

    Written By VW, Kansas on Friday, July 17, 2015

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    I upgraded from a nonHDMI input Onkyo receiver to the Onkyo TX-NR737. What an improvement! Having my HDMI components run to the receiver and one out to the TV simplified my connections. It also improved the sound quality immensely. My kids think streaming music to the stereo via Bluetooth is the best feature. The only problem I have had is it won't recognize my MacBook Pro when the "PC" input is selected. Overall, I would rate this receiver as "why did I wait so long to upgrade."

    Pros: Bluetooth, HDMI in and out, improved sound quality

    Cons: Won't recognize my Mac laptop

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Crutchfield tech support was there to help get me connected. Great company. I have purchased several items from them. Would highly recommend Crutchfield.

    Pros: This receive has a lot to offer anyone in the market for a replacement. I have had a Kenwood, Sony, and Pioneer And by far this is the best. Love that its built in with Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, no additional adapters to purchase unlike other brands. Zone 2 allows you to run additional speakers to other rooms inside and outside while someone is watching tv in the main room.

    Cons: Wish it came with more detailed instructions. You must download the advanced manual to understand all that this receiver has to offer. It is a little difficult to set up but Onkyo and Crutchield were great walking me through it.

    Took an afternoon or so to get everything hooked up and set up just right but that was expected. I have it set up for 7.1 now but will switch to Atmos when more/some streaming content is available. Great complement to my new Sony 70" 4k tv. Audio return on the main HDMI cable works great for Netflix downloads to the tv and the receiver automatically senses and switches over to this audio imput. An unexpected surprise since I did not read that on the spec sheet! All I can say is WOW! Everything looks and sounds fabulous. The only thing better than this receiver is the Crutchfield customer service. I have called 2 times now with set-up questions and they have been terrific! I am a very happy and loyal customer!

    Pros: All good!

    Cons: None- other than complaints from my wife for spending too much time in my man cave :)

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    I bought this receiver as a replacement for my 28-year old receiver (yes, you read that correctly). What was completely unexpected was the incredible sound quality of the Onkyo. My old receiver was top-of-the-line when I bought it, and sound quality is the thing for me. I don't have a lot of sophisticated video requirements, though the Onkyo is superb in that respect as well. I had been thinking about replacing the old receiver for quite some time, and when I saw this on sale, I decided it was time. When I hooked up the new receiver, I couldn't believe the difference. If you've been thinking about upgrading your retro gear, I think you'll be very pleased with this receiver.

    Pros: Sound quality

    Cons: The on-screen set-up could be a little more user-friendly and interactive.

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    I replaced a 7 year old Pioneer Elite receiver with the Onkyo TX-NR737. The Pioneer was almost twice the price when new and was THX,1080P upscaling, etc. The setup on the new Onkyo was SUPER EASY! The surround sound is better, not necessarily louder, just better dispersion. It seems they have figured out that the surround speakers need a lively center channel for dialogue and equal power front and rear. I have the Onkyo connected to my PC via an HDMI and am using the built in wifi to connect to the internet apps on the receiver. Setting up the remote to work with all of my existing remotes was a snap. Setting up the second room audio was easy as well. From unboxing to having everything plugged in and configured took me two hours. The old Pioneer took two days to set everything up. The biggest bonus with the Onkyo and the thing I didn't expect was that the Onkyo receiver gives our 1080P TV a noticeably better picture! Much sharper and well defined images. My wife's response was WOW the picture is WAY better! Overall the Onkyo has impressed me with it's ease of setup, picture and sound quality, and clean looks. The only things I would change are a remote with lighted buttons would be nice and I wish it had a switched A/C outlet in the back.

    Pros: Ease of setup, picture and sound quality, clean quality looks.

    Cons: Remote is difficult to see in low light. Needs a switched A/C outlet for my powered subwoofer.

    Great Feature Set - Wi Fi Didn't Work

    Written By JP, Minnesota on Wednesday, June 03, 2015

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Have to go right in the middle on this review for now. Just got it. Set it up no problem with the important exception that the wi fi didn't work properly even when it showed 100% signal. The signal came and went as it pleased. I need it VERY stable so I can run the Onkyo remote app which requires wi fi and my house remote control which uses the IP control this amp offers. Everything worked great while in those brief times when wi fi WAS working however. Crutchfield was great when I reported it. They are sending a replacement no charge both ways. Assuming the wi fi works on the new one I'll give the unit very high marks because everything else about it is great.

    Pros: Great feature set. Easy set up. Crutchfield as the vendor.

    Cons: Assuming the wi fi works on the replacement unit I will have no cons to report.

    onkyo receiver

    Written By the Bri, Colorado on Tuesday, June 02, 2015

    After owning Yamaha, and onkyo previous models, I really have to say I love this new onkyo 737. I didn't think that the THX would mean anything but having the THX modes on this receiver is sooo, cool. I glad I upgraded from the 636 . However, saying these things,if you look at the features for 636,737,and 838,there really isn't a noticeable difference other then the THX goodies. I say go for it. You don't like it , return it.

    Pros: A lot of power , thx modes. The sound.

    Cons: Only gripe, it looks like any other onkyo.

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    I was very happy with my original TX-NR606, but was definitely looking to upgrade the on-screen functionality on my new receiver. I alsow wanted to make sure the device is 'future proof'. The 737 has ATMOS, 4K pass-through and updated HDMI copy protection that should hold me through until the next leep frog technology. I will definitely be upgrading my room to ATMOS, but is currently a 7.1 configuration. The 737 has wifi, but I decided to use regular Ethernet instead. The unit is larger than my 606 and will generate more heat, so I had to move some components and gave it a large space to allow heat to flow away. I was able to view the sources and use the on screen display to walk through the other settings. It took a little playing around to learn the key sequence to enter the setup mode on the remote. I'm happy with the on-screen display, it really takes some of the guess work out of switching systems. The input source is right on the screen, and I like seeing what the volume level without having to squint to the equipment rack. I really like the IntellaView feature. It is a Picture In Picture for your video sources. I can be watching Cable and see what's happening on TIVO and then easily switch to it. Sound quality is very good. The decoding for movies is excellent and the amplifier matches nicely with my Polk speakers. I did need to adjust some of the channel levels, but this was easy. I was able to stream Sirius easily and so far it has worked as expect

    Pros: Future proof features, Picture in picture that works, great sounding amplifier and decoder

    Cons: Surround setting for sporting events is not as good as Yamaha, stadium sound setting is sub par in the Onkyo

    Very fast shipping on this product. Easy online ordering. Very much recommend Crutchfield and the OnkyoTX-NR737. The Onkyo 737 is all it is advertised as. I purchased the unit to do home theater and music and it does both super well. This is the first amplifier i have owned th as t is up to doing music well. It is also very powerful for the wattage output. I will buy Onkyo again and it will come from Crutchfield!

    Pros: Powerful multi mode home theater amp. Powerful music amp. No muddy bass or mids. Easy to set up. Easy to use. Nicely built.

    Cons: No short comings.

    Great Receiver

    Written By Tigrhntr, Massachusetts on Thursday, May 21, 2015

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    This is a great upgrade, considering Crutchfield's sale price and the ability to decode Dolby ATMOS programming. The unit walks you through an easy setup procedure (which, of course you can return to in the future for tweaking). I have a simple 5.1 setup now, but plan on adding ATMOS speakers (WIDE or HEIGHT) soon to take advantage of some newer Blu-Ray ATMOS content. On this model, you will have to perform an upgrade to the latest firmware to get the ATMOS (and other) features. The process is well- written on the Onkyo web site, and took me about 30 min. The unit has plenty of power, however, the volume really doesn't start being audible until about "40" on a scale to 100, from there it ramps up predictably, and we find a good movie needs to be at about 65 - 75 for good surround effect. We are using Infinity Primus towers for L-R,,matched with an Infinity Center speaker, Polk Audio TL-2's for our surround, and anInfinity 12"powered sub. A nice feature is the ARC, or audio return channel on the main HDMI output - this mated with an ARC on our TV HDMI-In allows for streaming services from the TV to transmit their sound to the Onkyo. Another nice feature is the network- ready nature of this receiver, both WIFI and Ethernet are included. Supports DLNA, so a networked drive now serves up our music; or use a Bluetooth connection from your phone or tablet to stream music to the Onkyo. Still learning some functions, but this is one great receiver that fits our sound needs.

    Pros: WIFI, Bluetooth, ATMOS capable, THX Select 2, ARC, HDCP 2.2 on one HDMI port, banana jacks

    Cons: Remote not back-lit, runs a little hot (use a small fan), not small speaker connector friendly (interfere with each other)

    Great so far

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Purchased receiver to drive a 3.1 SVS system. So can't speak for multi-zone or 7.1 capabilities. Auto-microphone set-up was easy and quick. Microphone cord was just barely long enough for my living room but worked fine. Receiver easy to set up and use. UI is fairly straight-forward and only a little dated looking. Perfectly functional though, I've found. The Spotify integration works very well and the addition of receiver volume control from the app (Samsung Galaxy Note 4) makes it my go to listening app. Plenty of power from the receiver for my needs.

    Pros: App integration, auto-calibration easy to use, plenty of power for medium room and bookshelf speakers

    Cons: Only minor quibbles: Receiver won't win any styling awards. Takes a bit longer to power up than some receivers I've had (10-20 seconds). Display doesn't auto-adjust to room brightness. Initial firmware update takes about 20 minutes.
