Onkyo TX-NR828 - 7.2 Channel Network AV Receiver (Demo Unit / Without Box Unit)
Live Life to the Fullest with an Onkyo Home Theater
The TX-NR828 gives you—the avid music and movie fan—power to make your home entertainment dreams a reality. From the aluminum faceplate through to the banana plug-compatible speaker posts, it’s easy to pick this as a heavyweight contender. Three-Stage Inverted Darlington Circuitry on all seven channels effortlessly handles big dynamic gains without distorting—as THX® Select2™ Plus certification attests—with musicality to render audio in extraordinary detail. On the hardware side, 7.2 multichannel pre-outs, powered Zone 2 outputs, and bi-amping capability grant the flexibility to customize. Eight 4K-ready HDMI® inputs including frontside MHL™ enable Dolby® TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio™ decoding. Audio processing comes courtesy of Audyssey MultEQ®, Audyssey DSX®, and Dolby® Pro Logic® IIz, while Marvell’s outstanding Qdeo™ technology upscales standard video to 4K. Need music right now? With a tap on your smartphone screen, you can serve lossless audio to your home theater—whether its stored on handset, NAS, PC, or online streaming service—using built-in Wi-Fi, or pair up and stream with onboard Bluetooth technology. Owning an Onkyo A/V receiver is not just about having big sound on movie night—it’s about maximizing the enjoyment of your daily life.
THX® Select2™ Plus for Reference-Level Sound
To be awarded THX Select2 Plus certification—the most rigorous performance benchmark for this type of product—the home theater receiver must play at studio reference volume levels with minimal distortion. Select2 Plus is specified for screen-to-seat distances of three to four meters and room volumes of about 56 cubic meters.
An Introduction to Premium Hi-Fi Sound
Onkyo’s WRAT (Wide Range Amp Technology) includes discrete low-negative-feedback amplifiers for punchy, true-to-life sound; closed ground-loop circuits to reduce noise; and high instantaneous current to counter impedance fluctuations. Three-Stage Inverted Darlington Circuitry is featured on all channels to handle reference-level playback without distorting.
4K Video Upscaling via Qdeo™ Technology
The TX-NR828 uses Qdeo technology from Marvell to upscale standard video sources to brilliantly smooth 1080p (for regular HDTVs) and to an incredible 4K on compatible displays.
Onboard Wi-Fi and Bluetooth Streaming Technology
The TX-NR828 connects to the wireless home network without LAN cables or adapters. Send a huge range of hi-res, lossless, and compressed files to your home theater from smartphone, PC, tablet, NAS, and online sources using our remote control app. Or pair devices for quality wireless streaming using the built-in Bluetooth technology.
Audyssey DSX® and Dolby® Pro Logic IIz®
Audyssey DSX lets you augment your setup with two Front Wide channels, expanding the width of the soundstage, or two Front Height speakers to add a vertical dimension to movies and games. Dolby Pro Logic IIz offers Front Height channels with 7.1-channel upmixing from stereo sources.
App-Controllable Multi-Zone Audio
The TX-NR828 features Powered Zone 2 outputs and Zone 2/3 line-outs. This lets you assign two channels to power audio in a room equipped with speakers. An existing hi-fi system in a third room can also be connected via the line-out, enabling the use of the A/V receiver as a pre-amp and audio server. Control content in all three zones via remote app; play the same song in all zones using Whole House Mode; or enjoy a different song in every room.
