TX-NR838

7.2-Channel Network A/V Receiver

Spellbinding Entertainment, However You Like It

Destined to intoxicate Hi-Fi enthusiasts as much as film lovers, the TX-NR838 boasts the absolute latest in high-resolution A/V processing. This heavyweight marries Onkyo’s Emotion, Delivered high-current amplification with Dolby Atmos® multidimensional sound*, a format that locates and moves directional audio above and around the listener in a seamless sphere of living sound. Thanks to the massive customized transformer and discrete Three-Stage Inverted Darlington Circuitry, you can feel the awesome power of multiplex movies in your own home. Hi-Fi credentials are further cemented with Pure Direct Analog Path, a selectable mode that shuts down all digital circuitry when you’re listening to LPs or other analog audio sources for pristine sound. Devotees of high-resolution can stream their network-attached Hi-Res albums using the remote app and Wi-Fi®, or get an instant fix with a smartphone and DSP-enhanced Bluetooth. The TX-NR838 is also packed with cutting-edge features for movies and gaming, with 4K/60 Hz-ready HDMI® 2.0 terminals, HDCP 2.2 for future Ultra HD video streaming, and the sheer power you need for a convincing surround-sound experience.
