TXNR525 - Onkyo Black 5.2 Channel Network AV Receiver

The Onkyo TX-NR525 has everything you need in an A/V receiver. There’s wireless-ready networking with an expanded choice of Internet streaming services to browse from your smartphone. You can send a range of audio formats from computer and NAS to the home theater, or stream music stored on iPhone® and Android devices using our remote app. We’ve included six HDMI® inputs for your media players and gaming consoles, enabled 4K video passthrough, and supported the latest hi-res audio and 3D video codecs. And it’s a really simple receiver to use—our hi-def user interface even has thumbnail video previews so you can select content at a glance. Remote app control extends beyond the living room to the kitchen or deck, for example. Most importantly, the TX-NR525 delivers exceptionally good sound without blowing the budget. Five discrete amplifiers and a 192 kHz/24-bit TI Burr-Brown DAC pumps out thrilling surround for games and movies, while offering superb two-channel performance to the hi-fi enthusiast. Inclusions such as banana plug-compatible speaker posts and upgraded Audyssey MultEQ® room equalization make the TX-NR525 the best deal around for first-time buyers.

      Bought this receiver to replace my old surround sound receiver which was not compatible with the HDMI connections from my new TV. Set up was a breeze and took less than 10 minutes. I really like the speaker phasing which customizes your speaker outputs to the room.

      Comments about Onkyo Black 5.2 Channel Network AV Receiver:

      In our living room, this replaced an older non surround unit. The sound is much better. It was easy to set up and has a solid feature set. While the on screen interface on the streaming apps is kinda weak, it works fine. The android app works well and facilitates the streaming functions. The microphone for automated setup was also great.

      I'm sure there are better units for more money, but this was feature rich, great sound, and a solid price.

          Comments about Onkyo Black 5.2 Channel Network AV Receiver:

          ABT Techs worked with me through hook up of old system (JVC 17 year old amp/receiver). Finally, gave up on old system and consulted Sales and Techs as to a mid-priced Amp/Receiver. I choose the ONKYO Black 5.2 A/V receiver. Very simple hook up instructions. Easy down loaded instruction manual as well. Surprised at the options available..trying diffrent settings for my personal use. Have not experianced any difficulties yet...don't expect to...Again,thanks to the ABT Staff...been recomending them to my family and friends...also my Customers

            Comments about Onkyo Black 5.2 Channel Network AV Receiver:

            Easy to set up, so far so good, still learning all of its functions, but it can do/hook up to about anything. Very price reasonable and quality component. I saved lots of money by keeping my old home theater system (10yr old JVC) I merely use the old speakers (right/left/center/front/back & base) and it sound great. My old receiver didn't have the HDMI connections. Now I have just a couple wires vice the nest prior.
            Thus far im very happy as I have theater sound with all my componets
