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.

Your music services streamed your way
Compatible with Amazon Music, Spotify, Deezer and Tidal, the TXNR686 covers all the major players. For Internet radio, the TuneIn service gives you access to thousands of radio stations from around the world. You also get a wide range of systems to stream your music. Choose from Wi-Fi over the network, Apple AirPlay or Bluetooth for the widest range of wireless music streaming options.

Chromecast with Google Assistant
Chromecast lets you stream music, podcasts and audio apps, including Google Play, at the touch of a button. Alternatively, use Google Assistant and this Onkyo AV receiver becomes part of your voice controlled smart home.

DTS Play-Fi
DTS Play-Fi is a premium, wireless control system that brings everything under one 'roof'. Download the free app and you'll not only have access to Internet radio but also popular music apps such as Spotify, Tidal, Deezer and Napster. As well as bringing all your streaming sources together, Play-Fi offers the potential for full multi-room music. Simply add other PlayFi compatible sources and you'll quickly be able to build up a comprehensive music system around your home - all under the control of a single app.

Or try new FlareConnect
For seamless multi-room compatibility, the TXNR686 also features FlareConnect. FlareConnect works with compatible Onkyo and Pioneer controller apps and lets you access your music from stored devices (such as NAS drives) or streaming services such as Spotify, Tidal, Deezer and TuneIn. From here you can send the music to all FlareConnect compatible Onkyo and Pioneer products, giving you effortless multi-room music around your home.

Spin your vinyl
It's not just the latest wireless sources that the Onkyo has covered, it can handle hi-fi sources, too. 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.

Get a thrill from all your music and movies, with the stunning Onkyo TX-NR686.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Same features than higher models and cheaper I bought this model few weeks back in change of a TX-NR616 and after connecting same speaker systems I can feel the difference in sound, before barely I could appreciate the fx from rear speakers whereas now I can feel more envolving sound. It has other nice features like Apple play and Bluethoot connection. Also, now I can update my system with Atmos speakers!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works a treat Partnered with Monitor Audio Bronze AV speakers and following a firmware update, upgrade of speaker cable and setup of main speakers using bi-amping it has great sound. Recent firmware now delivers "works with Sonos" which was easily setup. So overall really pleased. Have not yet cracked the HDMI ARC setup - but optical works just fine. Sounds very good.
