Onkyo A/V receivers feature a dedicated Phono input for turntable connection as well as universal Hi-Res compatibility for ease of use. Use the remote app to locate your 192/24 and 96/24 albums (including 5.6 MHz DSD playback) on PC or NAS and bask in the clarity, depth, and detail of high-resolution music.
384 kHz/32-bit Hi-Grade DAC
A premium-quality AK4458 digital-to-analog converter from AKM unlocks the full potential of any audio format with unique low-distortion filtering technologies for clear sound.
AccuEQ equalizes the surround-sound to suit the room acoustics for crisply focused sound, while AccuReflex aligns the phase of upfiring “height” speakers with the sound coming directly from your other speakers. Any delay is resolved so that everything arrives at your ears at the same time. The result is cohesive reproduction of object-based soundtracks.
