Not so long ago, in 2016, the Japanese company Onkyo released the budget receiver TX-NR757. Manufacturers, presenting Onkyo TX-NR757 specs to a user audience, said that it is an inexpensive, but very high-quality device that, thanks to the support of multidimensional sound formats, will be able to provide the user with a wide range of audio tones. To make sure this is true, we prepared our independent Onkyo TX-NR757 review.
This is a receiver designed for use in a 7.2-channel system. It supports the function of reproducing 3D sound formats (including Dolby Atmos and DTS: X), which help to calibrate the audio scene based on the characteristics of a particular room, which ensures a unique sound result. The device has considerable power (110W at 6 ohm). An additional advantage of this device is the presence of a trigger output (12v), which is necessary for connecting to a projector screen located on the ceiling and retracted from there. It should be noted such a “bonus” as THX certification and THX processing mode, which is due to compliance with HCPS, Dynamic Audio Amplification and LSC standards.
The Onkyo TX-NR757 high-precision amplification system is built on discrete circuits that allow the speakers to reproduce the most powerful and accurate sound. The high-quality Asahi Kasei AK4458 DAC with 384 kHz / 32-bit parameters and dual 32-bit DSP reveal the full potential of any audio format due to low distortion filtering technologies, guaranteeing clear sounding of all audio recordings.
Onkyo TX-NR757 impresses with its widest functionality, as it has as many as eight HDMI inputs with support for HDCP 2.2, for 4K video, and two HDMI outputs, thanks to which you can watch movies in two different rooms. To be able to fully enjoy the capabilities of the amplifier, the Onkyo TX-NR757 receiver has eight analog audio inputs and two parallel audio outputs to subwoofers, as well as a USB connector for connecting any device with media files.
AccuEQ Acoustic Calibration Technology, using the built-in microphone, detects and corrects speaker distance, volume level and frequency response, creating a convincing sound environment.
