Meet the Onkyo receiver from the low-price category. I was really pleased with this unit testing as well as with Onkyo TX-NR777 specs. See my thoughts in this Onkyo TX-NR777 review.
This Onkyo TX-NR777 receiver is in the low-price range, and it has 7 channels boasting 110 watts (8 ohms). The TX-NR777 upgrades the 4K Ultra HD experience with object-based audio and supports Dolby Vision, HDR10, HLG (Hybrid Log-Gamma), and BT.2020 pass-through. Experience ultimate sound and vision with clear, realistic picture quality. DTS Neural:X recognizes spatial effects in multichannel soundtracks and upmixes for 3D playback with object-audio-ready speaker systems. In a Dolby Atmos environment, Dolby Surround upmixes legacy sound formats for a multidimensional playback experience of legacy sound formats. With a 5.2-channel layout in the media room, Powered Zone 2A/2B speaker outputs send amplified network, S/PDIF, and analog audio sources to pairs of speakers in other spaces.
No matter what you're listening to, it will sound powerfully full, clean and clear. A premium-quality AK4458 digital-to-analog converter from Asahi Kasei implements unique low-distortion filtering technologies for clear sound, and unlocks the full potential of any audio format, including compressed, lossless, and hi-res audio.
There is plenty of inputs, 7 HDMI - 6 rear and 1 front, 2 Optical-In for audio and plenty RCA’s. Has wireless capabilities and Bluetooth. Nice option to have though. The NR777 includes built-in Wi-Fi, outputs for nine speakers, a second HDMI output, and the ability to connect a stereo receiver or amplifier through line-level Zone 2 connections.
AccuEQ conducts two measurements- one to set the level, distance and crossover for ALL speakers, including the subwoofer. Choose to include or bypass EQ measurement for front left and right speakers, and choose to automatically or manually set the EQ. Further, you can save your own manual EQ settings into three available presets.
