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.
MultEQ equalizes your system to suit the unique shape of your room. Measuring six listening positions, MultEQ applies filters to satellites and subwoofers to create a perfectly balanced soundstage.
Audyssey Dynamic EQ®
Dynamic EQ solves the problem of deteriorating sound quality at low volume. It selects the best frequency response and surround levels moment-by-moment, resulting in an optimal listening experience at any volume.
Audyssey Dynamic Volume®
Audyssey Dynamic Volume® compensates for volume fluctuations in different audio content—for example, during noisy commercial breaks—and adjusts the volume in real time.
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.
Phase-Matching Bass Enhancement
Onkyo’s PM Bass optimizes low frequencies while preserving mid-range clarity. It counters phase shifting (which can affect sound quality) by synchronizing frequency timing. The result is deep, well-defined bass that won’t overwhelm vocals or strings.
Hybrid Standby Power-Saving Mode
HDMI passthrough and network connectivity are maintained while the receiver is powered down. This facilitates use of your TV and other devices without turning on the receiver.
