See Onkyo TX-NR696 specs you want to know before purchasing in this Onkyo TX-NR696 review.
Onkyo TX-NR696 has a seven-channel configuration, its output stages are built on discrete elements and are able to provide significant current to the load. This makes the unit compatible with acoustics, whose impedance is 4 ohms. To achieve the power of built-in amplifiers of 175 W per channel, a custom power transformer with a low noise level is installed in the system. Onkyo TX-NR696 is supported by Dolby Atmos and DTS: X, and it is argued that in the absence of “top” speakers, that is, if 5.2.2 is not possible, Dolby Atmos HeightVirtualizer and DTS Virtual: X technologies will be able to create a three-dimensional sound field from horizontal column layouts. As before, the stereo output of the amplifier to the second room is possible.
Although the appearance of the Onkyo TX-NR696 remained quite traditional and recognizable, its electronic circuitry and functionality were finalized in 2019. Onkyo TX-NR696 has improved circuitry with a reduction in the length of the supply and grounding buses, as well as the removal of digital circuits from analog. A high-quality custom transformer is installed in the power supply unit of the AV receiver.
The device has seven HDMI inputs and two outputs, with support for 4K video, Dolby Vision and HDR10. Among the inputs for connecting external signal sources, we can note the connectors of the built-in phono corrector for the MM pickup of the vinyl player.
