The company's latest A/V receivers offer object-based audio technology.
The TX-NR646 and TX-NR747 are both 7.2 channel network A/V receivers. The TX-NR646 offers 170 W/Ch and the TX-NR747 offers 175 W/Ch along with THX Select2 Plus certification. Likewise, both models include Dual 32-bit DSP Engines and a new 384 kHz/32-bit AK4458 DAC from Asahi-Kasei. In addition, the receivers include 4K/60Hz-ready HDMI 2.0a connections with HDCP 2.2 compliancy and support for HDR and 21:9 aspect ratios. Finally, each receiver also includes integrated Dolby Atmos support and upgradeable DTS:X support (via a future firmware update) for up to 5.1.2 speaker configurations. Onkyo also notes that the DTS:X format will allow for "enhanced flexibility for height-channel placement, including in-ceiling speakers, front/rear height channels, and even Dolby Atmos-ready speaker systems."
