Bluetooth + Remote Control
Five Channel Amplifier: The Onkyo TX-NR535 AV receiver features a
5-channel amplifier rated
at 65 watts (into 8-ohms, at 20Hz-20kHz, with 0.7%, driving 2 channels).
The AV receiver's amplifier employs WRAT, 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
- 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
- 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.
192kHz/24-bit DACs + 32-Bit DSP Processing: This
Onkyo TX-NR535 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
AccuEQ Room Calibration: The AccuEQ Room Calibration function,
Onkyo's proprietary technology, collects the test tones coming from each
speaker with the supplied speaker setup microphone and performs
automatic setting of the number of speakers, volume level, each
speaker's optimum crossover frequencies, and distance from the primary
listening position. Distortion caused by difference of room acoustic
environment will also be corrected to produce clear, well-balanced
Multi-Channel Decoding Formats: The Onkyo TX-NR535
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).
Even though the AV receiver will decode 7.1channel surround sound
(via HDMI), it will only output 5.1ch surround, because it lacks
Surround Back channel speaker outputs.
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,
- 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
- 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.
Surround Parameters: The Onkyo TX-NR535 lets you
tweak and fine tune specific surround sound modes to suit your
- 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 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).
- 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-NR535 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, Bluetooth, 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.
- 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
- Bass & Treble: You can independently adjust the
Bass (50Hz) and Treble (20kHz) of the TX-NR535 from -10 to +10 dB.
Audio Inputs/Outputs: The Onkyo AV receiver offers a
variety of analog and digital audio inputs/outputs.
- Assignable Digital Inputs: The Onkyo receiver
