Features

Features arriving on the TX-NR595 include Onkyo’s DSP-based Vocal Enhancer which lets users raise or lower vocal frequencies to clarify movie or TV dialog via the remote controller or front-panel VOCAL buttons, and a Zone B line-out that passes audio signals. The Advanced Music Optimizer restores compressed audio files close to their original integrity for improved playback quality, and a USB power output supports network media streaming sticks. The TX-NR595 is a 7x 80-watt-per-channel receiver (4 ohms) with an exhaustive list of features, including support for the atmospheric Dolby Atmos and DTS:X formats.

Design and build

Keeping the same design does mean that the TX-NR595 retains my favorite feature of any receiver - direct source buttons! Like most people I misplace the remote a lot and so being able to tap a button to get to the source I want is super useful.

Connectivity

The TX-NR595 utilizes six HDMI inputs all of which support 4K/60p, 4:4:4, 24-bit video pass-through, and the HDCP 2.2 digital copy-protection standard. Video with HDR (High Dynamic Range) in HDR10, HLG (Hybrid Log-Gamma), or Dolby Vision™ formats is passed through to a compatible display. Further, video with BT.2020 color is supported, while Super Resolution, a 4K upscaling technology suited to HD sources is also on board.

Setup

AccuEQ Room Acoustic Calibration creates a harmonious sound-field in the room, detecting speaker presence, size, and distance from a measurement point, and setting sound-pressure levels. AccuReflex technology optimizes 3D audio reproduction through Dolby Atmos-enabled speakers by resolving phase-shift that arises from path differences between directional and non-directional sounds.

Pros and Cons

  • Music and movies sound great, especially when paired with a balanced-sounding set of speakers
