Onkyo Sound is Emotion, Delivered

Drivers don’t judge sports cars on top speed alone. Acceleration, cornering, and braking are equally important. It’s the same with A/V receivers- wattage is an indication of loudness, not sound quality. The real test is current. High instantaneous current realizes ultimate control of the speaker drivers for accurate and musical audio reproduction, from the most delicate piano passages the thunderous roar of an orchestra in full flight. High current is the cornerstone of our amplification philosophy, and no other brand can match Onkyo for dynamic driving power. We don’t just translate signals into sound. We create sound you can feel.

Spellbinding Entertainment

Destined to intoxicate hi-fi enthusiasts as much as hardcore film and game lovers, the TX-NR838 Network A/V Receiver combines pure analog power with the latest in high-resolution audio and video processing. This heavyweight receiver is built around Onkyo’s “Emotion, Delivered” high- current amplification concept with a massive customized transformer and discrete Three-Stage Inverted Darlington Circuitry. Hi-fi credentials are cemented with Pure Direct Analog Path, a selectable mode that shuts down all digital circuitry when you’re listening to LPs or other high- quality audio sources. Signals are routed via the phono or analog inputs to the amps for pristine sound that’s completely free of digital noise. Devotees of high-resolution, meanwhile, can stream their network-attached 5.6 MHz DSD or 192/24 hi-res albums using the remote app, while listeners seeking an instant fix can enjoy music from smartphone via inbuilt Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. The TX-NR838 is also packed full of cutting- edge features for movies and gaming, with 4K/60 Hz-ready HDMI terminals, HDCP 2.2 compatibility for future Ultra HD premium content, and the sheer power you need for a convincing surround-sound experience.

Engineered for Pure Exhilaration

Best-in-class high-current capability is achieved with Wide Range Amplifier Technology (WRAT). The design is built around a custom high-output transformer, customized 15,000 μF capacitors, and low-impedance copper bus-plates. Three-Stage Inverted Darlington Circuitry amplification features a discrete low-impedance output stage with high-current transistors cooled by a heavy-duty aluminum heat sink for instantaneous power and extremely low distortion. Unlike some A/V receivers, the audio and video processors, DAC section, networking, pre-amp, amplifiers, and power supply are all separated to minimize electrical interference on audio signals. The culmination of over 60 years’ audio engineering experience, WRAT preserves the life and character of the master recording while guaranteeing an emotionally moving experience whether you’re listening to compressed digital music, a treasured LP, or a hi-res movie soundtrack.
