Heighten your senses with the latest surround sound development

Surround back speakers are so last year. Add height to your home theater's sound stage with the Onkyo TX-NR838. When you upgrade this receiver's firmware for Dolby Atmos® capability, you'll be ready to experience a new dimension in home theater immersion as sound is projected from above your listening positions. Dolby Atmos lets you swap out surround back channels for in-ceiling speakers or special Dolby enabled speakers that reflect sound off the ceiling. It's just the latest technology the TX-NR838 can add to your home theater. There's also 4K video processing, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth for wireless music, and THX® certification for intense movie realism with traditional surround sound setups.

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 Dolby-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-NR838 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-NR838. 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 flesh out the sound of compressed files and Bluetooth streams.

Emphasis on sound


High-res audio

The 'NR838 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. 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 DSD. Or kick it old school by connecting your turntable and enabling Pure Direct Analog Path to turn off all digital circuitry for top-shelf analog playback.

Multi-room audio and video

If you'd like to add speakers and a TV to an adjoining bedroom, kitchen, or porch, you can plan ahead with the TX-NR838. There are powered Zone 2 outputs, so you can connect an additional set of speakers for use in another room. Two HDMI outputs operate independently, so you can watch different video content on each simultaneously. While the kids enjoy a movie on Blu-ray in the home theater, you can catch the ballgame on cable in the bedroom. 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 'NR838.

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.

Simple setup and control

The tiny microphone that's included with the TX-NR838 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.

    Audio Features

    7 Channel Amplifier: The Onkyo TX-NR838 AV receiver features a 7-channel amplifier rated at 130 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.

    • Separates Construction: Unlike many A/V receivers, the audio and video processors, DAC section, networking, pre-amp, amplifiers, and power supply are all separated inside the Onkyo receiver to minimize electrical interference on audio signals.
    • 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 a variety of ways to match your type of speaker setup.

    • Normal (7.2ch): The Onkyo TX-NR838 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.
    • Dolby Atmos (w/ Firmware Update): The Surround-Back/Front-High speaker terminals are assigned to power a pair of overhead ceiling speakers or a pair of Dolby Atmos-enabled speakers to create 5.2.2ch Dolby Atmos surround sound. Zone 2 speaker can still be powered by the receiver in the configuration. When Zone 2 is off, all seven channels will be used in the Main Zone for Dolby Atmos. However, when Zone 2 is on, power to the Dolby Atmos channels will be directed to the two speakers in Zone 2 and the Main Zone will receive only five channels of power without Dolby Atmos.

    192kHz/24-bit DACs + Dual 32-Bit DSP Processing: This Onkyo TX-NR838 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 powerful and highly accurate Dual 32-bit processing DSP's (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

    AccuEQ Room Calibration: Calibrating the sound to suit your room's acoustics is simple with Onkyo's AccuEQ auto-room calibration. Once you've connected your speakers, plug-in the included mic and wait a few moments as the TX-NR838 measures things such as speaker distance, type, crossover, and output, taking into account any reflections from your walls and floor. The system is designed specifically to by-pass your front left and right speakers. The system then optimizes the frequency response of the remaining speakers so you can enjoy balanced surround sound regardless of room shape or furnishing while retaining the characteristics of your front left and right speakers for optimum enjoyment

    Multi-Channel Decoding Formats: The Onkyo TX-NR838 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 A/V 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.

    Dolby Atmos: The TX-NR838 receiver is Dolby Atmos (5.2.2ch) compatible through a firmware update from Onkyo's website. Dolby Atmos combines traditional home theater speaker layouts with either ceiling-mounted speakers or new Dolby Atmos-enabled speakers to create a plane of sound above the listener. The impact of either in-ceiling or Dolby Atmos-enabled speakers is breathtaking. Your room fills with realistic, multidimensional sound that places you directly in the center of the entertainment experience.

    • Ceiling Mounted Speakers: Ceiling speakers are used for maximizing effects in Dolby Atmos listening mode. Install these speakers midway between the position just above the listening position and the position just above the front speakers, or simply install them just above the listening position.
    • Dolby Enabled Speakers: There are two types of Dolby Enabled Speakers; one is to be placed on the top board of other
      speakers such as front speakers and surround speakers; the other is integrated within the front or surround speakers. Dolby Enabled Speakers are designed with their output facing toward the ceiling to create an elevated audio effect in the Dolby Atmos mode by providing sounds echoing off the ceiling.
    Note: Globally, more than 100 cinema blockbusters have been released featuring Dolby Atmos soundtracks in the past two years, and many more are on the way. Major Hollywood studios are partnering with Dolby to create home video versions of both current box office releases and previously released favorites for release starting in 2014

    Dolby Surround: Dolby Surround offers an enhanced cinema experience to your Dolby Digital (Plus/TrueHD) and DTS (ES/HD) movie soundtracks using your existing 7.1ch or Dolby Atmos speaker setup. Dolby Surround enhances audio definition by improving the spatial dimension and overall audio definition of movie soundtracks. It does this by using four distinct surround zones that provide greater control over the exact placement of each detail in a movie sound track, so audio can be matched more accurately to the video on screen; this means more depth and greater realism for your movies. As a result, individual sounds are clearer and more distinct. It also improves the surround sound experience across the entire theater by widening the listening "sweet spot".

    THX Select 2 Plus Certified: The TX-NR838 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' 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.

    Audiophile Listening Modes: The Onkyo TX-NR838 offers two audiophile listening modes which bypass the receiver's tone & DSP processing for higher sound quality performance. In Direct mode, audio from the input source is output without surround-sound processing. This mode delivers pure sound with minimum sound quality adjustment and filtration. In Pure Audio mode, the display and video circuitry are turned off, minimizing possible noise sources for the ultimate in high-fidelity audio reproduction.

    Surround Parameters: The Onkyo TX-NR838 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-NR838 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 (50Hz) and Treble (20kHz) of the TX-NR838 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 two optical digital inputs and three coaxial digital inputs. All 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.
    • 7.2ch Pre Outs: The Onkyo TX-NR838 features 7.2ch pre-amp outputs (Front, Center, Surround, Surround Back/Front Height/Front Wide, and Dual Subwoofer) for connection of an external power amplifier. The dual sub outputs share the same input signal and are not discrete.
    • Headphones: When headphones are plugged into the full-size 1/4" jack on the front panel, all the speakers are automatically muted.

    Video Features

    7 HDMI Inputs/2 HDMI Outputs: The TX-NR838 has seven HDMI inputs (6 rear/1 front) and two HDMI outputs for connecting Blu-ray/DVD players, Satellite/Cable boxes, Game Consoles, and other video components to your TV. The front HDMI input is fixed as the Aux input, while the six rear-panel HDMI inputs are assignable to any of the other inputs. The dual HDMI outputs can simultaneously output the same audio/video signal to two TVs or you can assign the second HDMI output to Zone 2 to display a different HDMI source in another room (video is output at the resolution supported by both TVs). The HDMI jacks can accept and switch 480i, 480p, 720p, 1080i, 1080p, or 4K video signals to a HDTV (depending on input/output). All 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.). Additional HDMI features include -

    • 4K/60Hz + HDCP 2.2 (HDMI 2.0): The TX-NR838's HDMI 3 input and main HDMI output are version 2.0 compliant; supporting 4K/60Hz video signal, 21:9 display format, and HDCP 2.2 DRM copy protection compatibility. By implementing these new HDMI technologies, the TX-NR838 will be able to support future 4K streaming content from internet service providers (like Netflix) and UHD terrestrial/satellite broadcasts (not yet available). The AV receiver's HDMI 2-4 inputs and sub HDMI output are also version 2.0 and support 4K/60Hz video signal, but do not support HDCP 2.2 DRM copy protection. The receiver's HDMI 5-7 inputs are only version 1.4 and support up to 1080p video.
    • 3D-Ready: All HDMI jacks 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.
    • ARC (Audio Return Channel): The receiver's main HDMI output features 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 sub HDMI monitor output does not support this feature.
    • Auto Lip-Sync: The Lip-Sync function can automatically synchronize HDMI audio and video (for any HDMI jack) 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. You can also manually correct the audio delay from 0 (no delay) to 800 milliseconds; in 10 millisecond steps.

    Marvel Qdeo Video Chip for 4K Upscaling: The Onkyo TX-NR838 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). Upconversion and upscaling is only supported by the main HDMI video output.

    MHL-Compatible HDMI Port: The front-panel HDMI input is MHL compatible. This MHL compatible HDMI port provides easy, direct connection of MHL compatible Android smartphones. Playback of up to 1080p video and multi-channel audio from the phone is supported. The receiver will also charge your connected phone. Play, Stop, and other basic operations can be controlled from the AV receiver's remote control. Check here for a list of compatible MHL-enabled Android phones.

    Note: The front-panel HDMI input, along with the receiver's front-panel USB port can also be used to connect your Lightning or 30-pin connector Apple iOS device via Apple's Lightning Digital AV adapter or 30-pin digital AV adapter; you'll also need the USB cable that came with your Apple iOS device, and a HDMI cable (sold separately). This type of connection provides "screen mirroring", audio/video playback, and charging of your Apple iOS device through the Onkyo receiver and your HDMI-connected TV. All control of your Apple iOS device will be done through its own touchscreen (not the receiver). See AV adapter links for specific Apple iOS compatibility.

    HDMI Through: When enabling the HDMI Through function, regardless of whether the AV receiver is "on" or in "standby" both audio and video streams from an HDMI input will be output to your television, via the receiver HDMI monitor output. You can select between 3 HDMI Through functions modes.

    • Auto: Detects the signal and automatically selects the input sources.
    • Source: Selects the input source (BD/DVD, VCR/DVR, CBL/SAT, Game, PC, Aux, TV/CD, Port) for which the HDMI Through function in enabled.
    • Last: The HDMI Through function is activated on the input source selected at the time of setting the AV receiver to the "standby" mode.

    InstaPrevue: InstaPrevue technology provides a live video thumbnail of the available content on your devices connected to the receiver via HDMI. As a result, you can preview audio/video streams coming from up to five HDMI inputs previously assigned to input selectors on your HDMI connected TV. Even with multiple components connected to receiver through HDMI, you can easily switch between inputs as their previews are displayed on a single screen on your television. You can even use the InstaPrevue feature for Picture-in-Picture. You can specify the number of preview thumbnails, as well as their positioning on-screen.

    Note: If no video signal are present, the thumbnails will be filled in black. With 3D video signals, the image may not be properly rendered on the preview thumbnails of InstaPrevue.

    Analog Video Inputs: The receiver features four composite video inputs (3 rear/1 front) and one composite video monitor output which support 480i video signals only. There is one component video input and one component video output which support up to 1080i video signal. .

    Picture Adjust: Using the Picture Adjust feature, you can adjust the picture quality and reduce any noise appearing on your TV screen.

    • Wide Mode: Auto, Full, Zoom, Wide Zoom, or 4:3.
    • Picture Mode: Custom (Brightness/Contrast/Hue/Saturation/Color Temp), Cinema (for movies), Game (for gaming), Through (changes resolution), Direct (no adjustment).
    • Picture Settings: Film Mode (video or film), Edge Enhancement (sharpens image), Noise Reduction (reduce noise).

    Convenience Features

    On-Screen Menu 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 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-NR838 offers three Zones; a multi-channel audio/video system in your main listening room (Main Zone), a stereo audio/video system in a second room (Zone 2), and another stereo audio only system in a third room (Zone 3).

    • Zone 2 (Audio/Video + HDMI): Zone 2 allows playback of a separate audio/video source in 2-channel stereo in an additional room of your home. Zone 2 features line-level and speaker audio outputs. This way, Zone 2 can be powered by a separate amplifier (keeping 7.2ch playback in your main room) or by the TX-NR838's built-in amplifier (limiting the main room to 5.2ch). The Onkyo receiver also provides a Zone 2 HDMI output, so two different HDMI audio/video feeds can be sent to two different displays at the same time directly from the receiver (HDMI 1-4/Aux connected input sources only). HDMI Zone 2 will output up to 4K video and 2-channel audio for the HDMI input source selected. 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 can be controlled from the receiver when using the speaker outputs or line-level outputs, and from your add-on integrated amp when using the line-level outputs.
    • Zone 3 (Audio Only): 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 can be controlled by the AV receiver or your separate integrated amp's remote.

    Notes:

    1. Compatible Sources: Only Tuner, analog, USB, Bluetooth, and Network audio sources can be sent to Zone 2 and Zone 3. Zone 2 also supports HDMI audio/video sources. As for Network, USB, and Bluetooth sources; you cannot select different inputs for the main room and Zone 2/3. For example, if a Network source been selected in the main room and then a USB is selected as playback source in Zone 2/3, the input in the main room will also change to the USB source. When listening to AM/FM radio, you cannot select different stations for the main room and Zone 2/3.
    2. Incompatible Sources: Optical/coaxial digital audio sources are not output to Zone 2 or 3. You cannot output analog video to Zone 2 or Zone 3, and cannot output HDMI to Zone 3.

    Whole House Mode: The Whole House Mode is useful when you want to simply add extra background music to your home party. This mode allows you to enjoy the same stereo music as the main room in separate rooms (Zone 2/3). The Whole House Mode selects the same input source for Zone 2/3 as the main room. During the Whole House Mode, stereo playback is automatically selected for all zones. The Main Zone & Zone 2/3 will play at the same volume level.

    Name Edit: You can enter a custom name for each individual input selector and radio preset for easy identification. When entered, the custom name will appear on the display. This function cannot be used for the AM/FM, Network, USB, and Bluetooth input selectors.

    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 20 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.

    Hybrid Standby: The Onkyo TX-NR838 features "Hybrid Standby" mode to save energy and provide greater levels of convenience. Hybrid Standby Mode provides "HDMI through" functionality and maintains a local network connection while the receiver is essentially powered down. This allows the user to watch TV without turning the whole surround system on. Furthermore, when on Hybrid Standby, the home theater may be powered up from "cold" using the Remote Apps for Apple iOS and Android.

    Bluetooth + Remote Control

    Built-in Bluetooth: The Onkyo TX-NR838 features built-in Bluetooth (version 2.1+EDR) with support for profiles A2DP 1.2 and AVRCP 1.3. You'll be able to wirelessly stream music from your Bluetooth-enabled Apple device, Android smartphone/tablet, portable audio player, laptop, or PC to the Onkyo receiver. You will also be able to control basic playback functions (Play/Pause, FF/RW, Skip) using the receiver's remote control. Advanced music operation will still need to be handled from your Bluetooth-enable device. There is no song/artist information display on the receiver or connected TV; continue to use your Bluetooth device's screen to view song/artist info.

    Note: Due to the differences in Bluetooth technology, some Bluetooth enabled devices may be incompatible, function improperly, or may not support all features when used with the Onkyo receiver.

    Onkyo Remote App (for Apple iOS & Android): The Onkyo Remote App (from iTunes Apps & Google Play) allows you to operate the Onkyo AV receiver from your Apple iOS (4.3+) or Android (2.1+) device, using your home's wireless network. The Onkyo Remote App lets you you access Internet Radio stations, AM/FM stations, DLNA content, and Input sources right from your mobile device. Content information will be displayed on the device's touchscreen. You also get to adjust tone controls, listening modes, and speaker volume from your compatible Apple iOS or Android device. The Onkyo Remote App even allows you to wirelessly stream audio stored on your Apple iOS or Android device to the Onkyo AV receiver and lets you control audio output for up to 3 Zones. The Onkyo AV receiver and and your compatible Apple iOS or Android device must be connected to the same home network.

    Multibrand Remote w/ HDMI-Control: The receiver comes with an IR remote control for wireless operation of this receiver and other HDMI-connected sources (via HDMI CEC). In addition to the receiver, the remote can be programmed using the receiver's on-screen menu to control popular brands of TVs, Blu-ray players, DVD players/recorders, DVRs, VCRs, etc. HDMI Control allows HDMI-CEC compatible components or RIHD-compatible components connected via HDMI to be controlled with the TX-NR838. The AV receiver offers the following HDMI-CEC controls.

    • The AV receiver will enter Standby mode when the power of the TV is turned to Standby.
    • You can set on the menu screen of the TV to either output the audio from the speakers connected to the AV receiver, or from the speakers of the TV.

    Good for the Price

    Written By MJT, Staunton on Tuesday, November 11, 2014

    I was looking to upgrade to a 4K TV and needed to upgrade my receiver and was considering the Denon x3000, Onkyo TX-NR929.

    But after doing research these two receivers only did HDMI 1.4 which only allows 4K to be ran in 30Hz I wanted to do the full 60Hz and realize I needed a 2014 model.

    I purchased on 10/3/2014 the Onkyo TX-NR838. It does HDMI 2.0 on ports 1-4 and 3 is DHCP 2.2 And the MultiRoom HDMI switching is great to uses if you want to have input going to 2 different rooms.

    The on-screen display is simple and easy to navigate, setup was a breeze, it walks you through most of the settings on initial setup.

    As for the AccuEQ don't really know how it compares to the Audyssey MultEQ which is what my old one had. It measures distance very accurately and I always adjust the Db level to my preference.

    I have 6 Polk Audio Monitor30 Series II, CS1 Series II Center and DSWPRO 660wi. The receiver truly sounds awesome, the Phase Matching Bass adds depth to bass.

    New to 2014 is Dolby Atmos but this receiver only will do 5.1.2 and I had a 7.1 setup. The display seemed to be lacking info from previous models but all info can be seen on the TV.

    Overall if you want to spend about $1000 this receiver maybe for you it has great sound, 4K 60Hz ready. As for Atmos if you already have a 7.1 system you may not use it, but if you have a 5.1 system adding 2 ceiling speakers or Atoms enable speakers will give you an in-depth experience.

    Pros: 4K 60Hz on 4 inputs and DCHP 2.2 on 1 Switchable HDMI Zones 2 Sounds Great with Bass Depth

    Cons: Display lacking Info Only 5.1.2 Atmos

    Not Disappointed

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    I recently purchased the Onkyo TX NR 929. I had planned on keeping it until Onkyo announced they would upgrade the 2014 AV lineup with Dolby Atmos.

    I spoke with an Onkyo rep and was told that at this time Onkyo has no plans to upgrade the firmware on the 2013 lineup to accept Dolby Atmos. I then asked if i would lose anything sonically by going from the 929 to the 838. I was assured that the 838 would sound as good, if not better than the 929. So i went ahead and returned the 929.

    I've had the 838 for about a week now and, to me, it does sound better, with two channel and multichannel sources. I know some have reservations about Onkyo's in-house room correction, AccuEQ (2014 lineup no longer uses Audyssey). Although this was not a concern for me, I have to say that the AccuEQ appears to have made a difference in the sound quality. I like that it does not include the mains in the analysis, as i listen to CD's a lot on the Oppo 105.

    For those interested in setup / comparison information; the speakers used with this system is the Def Tech 8080 series, all around. When compared to the 929, I do prefer the layout of the speaker terminals on the 929 over the terminal layout on the 838. Depth wise the 838 is shorter

    Although I can do a 5.1.2 Dolby Atmos setup with the 838, I've read that a 5.1.4 or 7.1.4 setup is ideal. The upcoming TX NR 1030 and 3030 will do that. But it's not available now.

    Hope this helps anyone who may be considering the 838, 929 or 1030
