At home in almost any home theater
Onkyo doesn't know what kind of speakers or music sources you already have in your home theater. That's why they designed the TX-NR828 receiver with so many versatile features and connection options. With 7 channels of power, 2 subwoofer outputs, and connections for up to 11 speakers, the 'NR828 offers plenty of ways to enjoy music and movies in stereo and surround sound. Use those extra channels to power speakers in a second room, bi-amp your front speakers for more detailed sound, or go for fully immersive 7.2-channel surround sound. With lots of inputs for digital and analog source components, built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, and a steady supply of robust Onkyo power, this receiver will be right at home in almost anyone's living room, home theater, or basement rec room.
Bigger, more realistic sound with THX® and Audyssey DSX®
Want your home theater to sound more like the movie theater? The 'NR828 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. Audyssey DSX and Dolby® Pro Logic IIz audio processing optimize movie soundtracks for this theater-like setup that will make your home theater sound positively huge.
Take high-def video even higher
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 'NR828's Marvell Qdeo™ processor. And with 4K upscaling, this receiver is ready for the next generation of Ultra High Definition TVs. This receiver is not HDCP 2.2-compliant and will not support copy-protected 4K video content.
Stream music wirelessly from anywhere and everywhere
Wireless music streaming doesn't get any easier than with the TX-NR828. With both built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, you've got plenty of options for enjoying music from the Internet, computers, and portable devices. There's built-in support for online music services like Spotify®, Pandora®, and SiriusXM, as well as free Internet radio with TuneIn. Or send music directly to the receiver from your Bluetooth-compatible smartphone or tablet. Plus you can send music from your DLNA-compatible PC to the 'NR828 for playback over your Wi-Fi network. Onkyo's Music Optimizer helps make all your digital music sound its best, so you'll get the most out of all these options for enjoying your favorite songs and discovering new ones.
Easy setup and control
You won't be intimidated by this receiver's setup 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.
Onkyo has also added menu overlays, a great feature that allows you to view and tweak settings while watching a movie or show without having to toggle back and forth between screens. And for easy touchscreen control, Onkyo's free remote app for Apple® and Android™ lets you control the TX-NR828 from your smartphone or tablet.
