Whether playing the latest home cinema formats or streaming music, the Onkyo TXNR686 is always a dynamic powerhouse.
Power to have you on the edge of your seat
Featuring high-current, Dynamic Audio Amplification, the TX-NR686 is ready for the most action-packed movies and stirring music. HCPS (High Current Power Supply) means that no matter how intense the action gets, the Onkyo always keeps control, with a sound punchy enough to make you 'jump' in your seat and send shivers down your spine. Other tech such as discrete output stages and VLSC (Vector Linear Shaping Circuitry) means the TX-NR686 produces ultra-low levels of distortion for a smooth, detailed sound.
Certified by THX
The high power thrill isn’t just guaranteed by Onkyo, it’s certified by THX, too. THX are a Californian company founded by George Lucas of Star Wars fame. To gain THX approval, products are bench tested to a rigorous level, covering every aspect of audio performance. Only a select few products gain the THX certification, making it a true badge of honour for any home cinema product.
Dolby Atmos and DTS:X for a new dimension in sound
Dolby Atmos uses ceiling or upwards firing speakers to produce a multi-dimensional, immersive sound that's a match for the finest cinemas. DTS:X literally pushes the boundaries of what you can expect from home cinema. It renders images in three dimensions that conventional processing can't match. It also easily adapts with your existing speaker configuration.
Supports HDR10, Dolby Vision, HLG and BT.2020 standards – perfect for UHD entertainment
The Onkyo TXNR686 is the perfect partner for your HDR-equipped TV and video source. It supports HDR10, Dolby Vision, BT.2020 and HDCP 2.2, which means you can play UHD Blu-ray discs and stream UltraHD video in the highest quality. The HDMI sockets allow 4K pass-through, for hassle free switching and viewing without the receiver needing to be powered up.
Hi-Res Audio playback
At the heart of the Onkyo's digital processing is a top quality AK4458 32 bit/384kHz DAC (Digital to Analogue Convertor). This not only provides a transparent and lifelike sound but also facilitates the playback of High Resolution audio formats. The TXNR686 is compatible with a wide range of HD audio formats, including DSD 5.6 MHz and FLAC 192kHz-24-bit for exceptional sound quality.
