With all the latest surround processors, including Dolby Atmos and DTS-X, the Onkyo TX-NR656 makes movie nights more like the cinema than ever.

Dynamic Audio Amplification for cinematic sound

With the latest Dynamic Audio Amplification onboard, the TX-NR656 is ready for the most action-packed movies. HCPS (High Current Power Supply) means that no matter how intense the action gets, the Onkyo will always keep control, with a sound dynamic enough to make you 'jump' in your seat and send shivers down your spine. Thanks to other technologies such as PLL (Phase Locked Loop) and VLSC (Vector Linear Shaping Circuitry) the TX-NR656 produces ultra-low levels of distortion for a smooth, detailed sound.

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 TXNR656 is compatible with a wide range of HD audio formats, including DSD 5.6 MHz and FLAC 192kHz-24-bit for exceptional sound quality.

Ready for DTS:X
DTS:X is the flagship processor from this highly respected tech company. It literally pushes the boundaries of what you can expect from home cinema. This highly sophisticated processor renders images in three dimensions that conventional processing can't match. It also offers other advantages such as the ability to boost the spatial effect of conventional DTS and easily adapts with your existing speaker configuration.

Dolby Atmos
Optimised for Dolby Atmos, you can be amongst the first to experience the wonder of Dolby Atmos in your own home. Producing a multi-dimensional and totally immersive sound, Dolby Atmos has been hailed as the greatest advance in surround sound for 20 years - so don't miss out!

Google Cast, AirPlay and Bluetooth
It's easy to stream music from your smartphone and tablet with Googlecast* and AirPlay onboard. Link up wirelessly and stream your stored music or favourite music services using Google (Android) or iTunes (Apple) operating systems. For universal compatibility, including many laptops and PCs, Bluetooth wireless music streaming is also available.

Windows Media Player and built-in wi-fi for the complete networking experience
The TX-NR656 also comes with Wi-Fi, Internet radio and Windows Media Player. Simply connect to your home network using an Ethernet connection or Wi-Fi and you can access thousands of Internet radio sites via tunein as well as subscription services such as Spotify Connect and Tidal. Windows Media Player compatibility lets you stream music from other sources such as your PC, laptop or NAS drive.

Add a wireless speaker with FireConnect powered by Blackfire
Using the latest FireConnect by Blackfire technology it's possible to create a multi-room speaker system - wirelessly! Simply add compatible Onkyo wireless speakers and you can mirror what's playing on the main system in another room.

All this, plus you can still connect up your record deck
If all this connectivity weren't enough, the TX-NR656 still performs admirably as a hi-fi amp. Six line inputs and three digital connections are ample for the most complex of home entertainment systems. You can even plug in your turntable, thanks to the dedicated phono (MM) input.

Bring the sound of the cinema home, with the Onkyo TXNR656.
