Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
This is the second Onkyo receiver I have purchased. First one lasted 7 years. Works great as expected.
If you love thrilling home theater sound you'll want to check out the Onkyo TX-NR777. This 7.2-channel THX® Select2™ Plus certified receiver brings movie soundtracks to life with heart-pounding accuracy. Got a 4K TV and Blu-ray player? You'll get picture quality so realistic you might think you're looking through a window. The 'NR777 even upscales HD video content to 4K resolution, so your older Blu-rays will shine with new life.
Built-in Wi-Fi lets you access the music you have stored on your networked computer so you can easily play tracks from your personal library through the 'NR777. Chromecast built-in (requires a firmware update, available now) lets you use your computer, phone, or tablet to stream music from over 100 audio apps to the receiver.
Use the Onkyo Controller app to control streaming from your mobile device. Apple® AirPlay® lets you stream from a compatible iOS® device or from any computer with iTunes®. And Bluetooth adds even more wireless music options.
Outstanding audio performance is an integral part of the 'NR777's design. A premium 32-bit/384kHz digital-to-analog converter gives you crystal-clear reproduction of music, TV, and movie soundtracks. Dynamic Audio Amplification delivers massive power with low distortion for thrilling movie sound effects. Phase-matching Bass Enhancement lets you enjoy deep, satisfying low frequency effects while vocals and dialogue remain clear.
This receiver also decodes high-resolution audio formats. And Onkyo's Music Optimizer improves the sound from compressed audio files and Bluetooth streams, so you get clear, detailed sound no matter how you listen.
The 'NR777 has outputs for nine speakers, allowing for flexible speaker configurations (but remember, its seven channels can only power seven speakers at once). If you're happy with 5.2-channel surround sound in your living room, you can use the receiver's powered Zone 2 outputs to connect a pair of speakers for stereo sound in another room.
You can also connect a stereo receiver or amplifier through line-level Zone 2 connections and use the 'NR777 as a preamp, for full 7.2-channel surround sound in your home theater and stereo sound in a second room.
A second HDMI output lets you watch the same video source in your main zone and a second room. Start a movie in your living room and finish it in your bedroom or kitchen. Or watch the same content on a TV and projector in the same room. Use the Onkyo Controller app to control playback in different zones from anywhere in the house.

This is the second Onkyo receiver I have purchased. First one lasted 7 years. Works great as expected.
All the features I was looking for and at a price I could live with. Well laid out back made connections easy. Drives the new Polk speakers well. Music and movies sound great. Next step is to add Dolby Atmos for over the top sound. Used mostly for TV and movies (70%) and the rest for audio (30%)
Pros: Well laid out connections Network connectivity Smartphone app
Cons: None so far
Muy contento por esta compra Muy rápida entrega y unas excelente condiciones gracia lo recomiendo
Very nice receiver. Lots of inputs and the sound is really great. My old Onkyo was really great and I had it for several years but it literally went under water and I had to replace it. This unit does everything that I need it to do. Onkyo has always been a solid buy and worth the money.
Pros: Lots of inputs and outputs. It does everything that I need it to do.
Cons: None so far.
I've only had this a few days, but so far I like it. The only disappointment would be that the NET or network functionality does not include video -only audio. With Chromecast built in I expected to be able to use it same as I would my $35 Chromecast that plugs into the HDMI.
Pros: Excellent sound quality, good quality and easy remote, smartphone app, nice interface, lots of HDMI and other input options. Zone 2
Cons: Network functionality is audio only, wa-what? Can't change decoder modes from smartphone app. Can't adjust subwoofer level from app, adjusting EQ makes audio dropout briefly.
Lots of muscle to drive my tower and surround speakers. Good deep bass on cable and streaming box. I plan to add a center speaker soon.
I had an older TX NR807 Loved it but it only lasted 8 years. Others I have had lasted 15+ years
This Onkyo received fulfills our requirements. It was easy to set up and with the assistance of Crutchfield tech support aorks wonderfully. Good purchase
I have the Onkyo TX-NR777 set as 5.1 with bi-amp on the front speakers and use all Klipsch speakers. First of all the sound is amazing and I can't imagine anything else providing a sound I would prefer more. I made one call to my advisor "Stone" and then talked with Crutchfield tech support on a concern I had. They both immediately responded and were excellent. On initial setup I ran the auto features using their included microphone. It worked without problem but when finished, it sounded good but was not what I was hoping for. I then started manually adjusting crossovers, levels, eq, etc and that's when it all clicked for me. The sound has plenty of boom and still provides lots of mids and highs. Concerts (DVD, Blu-ray, Dish, etc) are amazing - it sounds as if you were actually there. Then turning down the volume to lower levels provides very smooth and mellow/but clean sounds. There are many settings and combined have some serious impacts to the output. The more you tweak the better it gets. After about 2 weeks of tweaking (I didn't have much time at first) the sound is now just fine. There have been a couple of concerns where it appears some settings may have reset themselves but I am not really sure - maybe it was me. Only time will tell so therefore that's the reason for 4 stars. As far as power, it has more than I really need and sound is crisp and clean. Volume levels usually range from 42 to 50 & concerts max about 62 out of a max of
Pros: Outstanding sound and provides lots of adjustments for tweaking. Lots of clean power.
Cons: Some concerns as if some settings may be resetting themselves but not sure yet (could be me).
very nice receiver. Great price Canot go wrong with onkyo
Cons: none so far
I love the sound and features. It seems to be built well. I have only had it a few weeks but I have never been disappointed with Onkyo. Always worth the extra.
Pros: Sound Quality, features
Cons: Remote does not operate other items like t.v. or cable receiver.

Dynamic Audio Amplification: The TX-NR777 AV receiver features Onkyo's Dynamic Audio Amplification with a 7-channel amplifier rated at 110 watts (into 8-ohms, at 20Hz-20kHz, with 0.08%, driving 2 channels). Onkyo's new Dynamic Audio Amplification technology incorporates a Hi-Current, non-phase shift amplifier design with discrete output stage circuitry and a H.C.P.S (High Current Power Supply) capable of driving 4-16Ω speakers with dynamic control, while producing clear, detailed sound.
Amplifier Assignment: The 7-channel amplifier can be configured in a variety of ways to match your type of speaker setup.
Dual 32-Bit DSP Engines: The Onkyo TX-NR777 AV receiver employs powerful and highly accurate 32-bit DSP (Digital Signal Processor) engines for better surround sound reproduction.
384kHz/32-Bit Hi-Grade DAC: The Onkyo TX-NR777 utilizes one premium-quality AK4458 digital-to-analog converter from Asahi Kasei for all channels. This 384kHz/32-bit DAC implements unique low-distortion filtering technologies for clear sound, and unlocks the full potential of any audio format, including compressed, lossless, and hi-res audio (MP3, WMA, WMA Lossless, FLAC, WAV, OggVorbis, AAC, Apple Lossless, DSD 5.6 MHz, LPCM, and Dolby TrueHD).
Vector Linear Shaping Circuitry (Front Channels Only): Onkyo developed Vector Linear Shaping Circuitry (VLSC) to reassemble the signal in its original form following processing. Unlike conventional filters, VLSC removes pulse noise generated in D/A conversion, allowing the sound wave to be reproduced with extremely high fidelity for a smooth analog signal. The signal's data is converted between sampling points and joined with analog vectors in real time to produce a smooth output wave form. The result is a virtually noiseless, smooth, analog signal that brings out even the most subtle of nuances in music sources.
AccuEQ w/ AccuReflex: AccuEQ conducts two measurements: (1) it measures and sets the distance, sound pressure level and crossover of your speakers and subwoofer to ensure all channels are treated equally (2) it evaluates your room's sonic characteristics and adjusts your speaker's frequency response to prevent standing waves from forming. AccuEQ incorporates AccuReflex technology to align the phase of upfiring "height" speakers with the sound coming directly from your other speakers. Any delay is resolved so that everything arrives at your ears at the same time. The result is cohesive reproduction of object-based soundtracks. You can save up to 3 AccuEQ presets. The included microphone plugs into the front-panel of the receiver.
Note: You can choose bypass the AccuEQ for your front speakers or all speakers, and manually set the distance, crossover, EQ, and level of each speaker.
Compatible Digital Audio Formats: The AV receiver supports the following stereo & multichannel digital audio formats through its HDMI jacks and optical/coax digital inputs.
|Digital Audio Connector||Audio Signal Type||Audio Signal Format|

This is to replace my ancient Onkyo TX-DS595 receiver (bought in 2001). I know the Onkyo TX-NR777 will work very well with today's technology, and hope it lasts 17 years also! ?? [ N May 20, 2018 ]
Best unit in my desired price range [ Jim May 17, 2018 ]
Component had the features I required, size I needed to fit current setup and had good reviews. Also, Onkyo has a solid reputation. [ THOMAS Apr 20, 2018 ]
research [ John Dec 13, 2017 ]
Purchased a Denon receiver a few months ago. It was a lemon out of the box and Denon refuses to replace it after having it in the shop for repairs twice. Cut my losses and upgraded to this Onkyo TX-NR777 which is THX Certified gear which is a must for total 4k home theater satisfation. I'll never by Denon brand ever again. [ Eric Oct 29, 2017 ]
I was referred by my brother which said Crutchfield is a good choice to shop home theatre receivers, and I like it. [ Henry Oct 14, 2017 ]
Yes, I have great sound quality and clarity. [ Gary Jan 10, 2018 ]
According to the specs I have the NR777 can output to 6 and 8 ohm speakers. There is a note that 4 to less than 6 ohms requires some adjustment after initial configuration. [ Alan Jan 10, 2018 ]
Yes. The unit autodetects the speakers and sets the amplifiers appropriately. 6 ohm speakers will not be damaged nor will they cause the units amplifiers to be overdriven. [ James Jan 10, 2018 ]
Manual says you can use speakers 4-16 ohms. [ J HAROLD Jan 10, 2018 ]
yes just need to change in the settings [ Douglas Jan 10, 2018 ]
There is no ideal way to connect a rear center channel speaker to receivers like this model but there are ways to connect it so it can still play. I recommend contacting an advisor on 1-800-324-9695 to discuss your options. My Bio: http://www.crutchfield.com/Support/Bio.aspx?bio=101 [ Paul Jan 15, 2018 ] Staff
