Features

The unit with 115W (6 Ohm) power supports the Dolby Atmos for watching Ultra HD movies, 4K games at 60 frames per second, with compatible HDMI inputs and HDCP 2.2 system for copy protection, which is used by various movie studios, streaming service providers, broadcast and satellite TV channels. Qdeo upscaling technology converts DVDs and low-resolution games to Full HD or 4K (if you have an Ultra HD display).

Design and build

The receiver is endowed with a pre-amplifier for the EPU electromagnetic pickup and has access to the second sounding zone. You can use the rear channels to connect additional upper front speakers, the app supports 7.2-channel Dolby Pro Logic II sound. The Onkyo TX-NR545 AV receiver is manufactured using the high-quality digital-to-analog converter AK4458 (manufacturer - Asahi Kasei), which significantly reduces noise and provides the most natural sound, since this DAC guarantees the thoroughness of a digital filter.

Connectivity

All six HDMI inputs are specification 2.0 with 4K support, and the first three are also HDCP 2.2, which will allow them to receive content from Ultra HD discs that will appear later this year. The HDMI output is also compatible with HDCP 2.2. There are also two optical and one coaxial inputs, a USB port, seven RCA analog stereo inputs, four composite and two component video inputs. This receiver can receive various audio files wirelessly via Bluetooth and Wi-Fi technology. In addition, this device supports the AirPlay interface. For user convenience, the receiver is equipped with the built-in Spotify Connect software application, which streams music.

Setup

Configuring Onkyo is no more difficult than most similar receivers; All connectors are clearly labeled. Connect the device to the network, connect the microphone for tuning - and everything will work out by itself. AccuEQ's proprietary auto-calibration software has long learned to produce accurate results. A series of test tones is short-lived - just enough time to boil the kettle.
