  • Dolby Atmos® Multidimensional Sound

    Onkyo is among the first to introduce the exciting Dolby Atmos surround-sound format to home theater environments. Dolby Atmos uses object-oriented mixing to layer independent audio elements through discrete channels, moving three-dimensional sound effects around the theater with astonishing realism. The format adapts to any home theater layout incorporating height channels for a more enveloping soundfield with extremely accurate directional and overhead effects. Onkyo Dolby Atmos enabled receivers allow Onkyo customers to enjoy not only new content that will be released in Dolby Atmos but will also provide an enhanced experience of their current Blu-ray libraries through Dolby Surround. Learn more here: http://dolbyatmos.onkyousa.com.
  • Supporting Next Generation HDMI and HDCP 2.2 Copy Protection

    The TX-NR636 is the first receiver to boast not only the latest HDMI connections supporting 4K/60Hz and 21:9 format, but also the latest DMR copy protection compatibility, HDCP 2.2. By implementing the latest HDMI connections, supporting 4k/60Hz with HDCP 2.2, latest DRM content-protection method will be adopted for future premium 4K studio releases, 4K streaming via internet service providers, as well as for UHD terrestrial and satellite broadcasts, the TX-NR636 paves the way for Ultra HD video playback.
    Even if you’re not planning on upgrading your current display right away, it’s good to know your Onkyo receiver is ready for the future of gaming and video entertainment.
  • Wi-Fi and Bluetooth Inside

    The TX-NR636 has Wi-Fi and Bluetooth technologies built in. No wires, no dongles, no mess. Complete the one-time Wi-Fi setup, download our free control app for iOs and Andriod devices, and you’ve got a full range of remote control and audio streaming features in the palm of your hand. You can also pair your Bluetooth-capable device and stream direct to your home theater. With Advanced Music Optimizer DSP compensating for compression, music via Bluetooth has never sounded better.
  • From the Vinyl Revolution to the Digital Age

    Whether you’re just beginning one or adding to you’re an existing collection, the TX-NR636’s dedicated phono input let you enjoy your classic vinyl in all its analog glory. Onkyo’s commitment to Hi-Res audio playback and supports gapless playback and the ability to play DSD, Double DSD, FLAC and ALAC along with other Hi-Res formats. The TX-NR636 has what it takes to help you enjoy your music, and discover how truly amazing music can sound on an A/V receiver engineered for hi-res analog and digital audio.
  • Built-in Internet Radio and Streaming

    If you can think of it, you’ll most likely be able to stream it on your TX-NR636. The receiver comes loaded with Spotify, Pandora, SiriusXM Internet Radio, Rhapsody, AUPEO! and TuneIn, You can select a station and search for music available on these services via the free Onkyo app on your phone so you’ll never be short of your favorite music to enjoy.
  • Hi-Fi Power and Fidelity

    WRAT (Wide Range Amplifier Technology) is all about current. Receivers need a lot of current to not only handle the sudden explosive actions scenes but also to reproduce the detail of quiet passages. We use a massive high-power transformer to drive discrete amps that help eliminate distortion and preserve the energy of music and movies. Delivering 115 watts per channel, the TX-NR636 packs a colossal punch for movies but still retains the pure musicality you need for two-channel playback. Also, Phase-Matching Bass Enhancement optimizes low frequencies while preserving mid- range clarity. It counters phase shifting by synchronizing the timing of different frequencies. The result is deep, well- defined bass that won’t blur vocals or strings.
  • Exclusive AccuEQ Room Calibration (logo and images)

    Calibrating the sound to suit your room’s acoustics is simple with AccuEQ. Once you’ve connected your speakers, plug-in the included mic and wait a few moments as the TX-NR636 measures things such as speaker distance, type, crossover, and output, taking into account any reflections from your walls and floor. The system is designed specifically to by-pass your front left and right speakers. The system then optimizes the frequency response of the remaining speakers so you can enjoy balanced surround sound regardless of room shape or furnishing while retaining the characteristics of your front left and right speakers for optimum enjoyment.
  • Quick & Easy Remote App

    The Onkyo remote app for iPod touch®/iPhone® and Android devices is a convenient way to control your home entertainment from anywhere within wireless range. The app has a clear graphical interface to control playback, adjust settings and handle content across multiple zones.
  • Powered Multi-Zone Audio and Bi-Amping

    Powered Zone 2 speaker terminals (and a Zone 2 line-out) let you power audio in another room equipped with stereo speakers. You can also assign surround back channels to bi- amp your front loudspeakers.
