Take home theater to the next level

If you've invested in a 4K TV and Blu-ray player, you need a receiver that lets you get the most out of them. The Onkyo TX-NR676 supports 4K and HDR. Want realistic, dynamic sound to match that lifelike picture? This receiver decodes Dolby Atmos and DTS:X, for the most immersive surround sound you'll hear outside a theater.

On top of all that, you'll have loads of music at your fingertips — playing in multiple rooms if you like — with convenient control through your phone or tablet.

Easy wireless music listening

Built-in Wi-Fi lets you access the music you have stored on your networked computer so you can easily play tracks from your personal library through the 'NR676. Chromecast built-in (requires a firmware update, available now) lets you use your computer, phone, or tablet to stream music from over 100 audio apps to the receiver.

Use the Onkyo Controller app to control streaming from your mobile device. Apple® AirPlay® lets you stream from a compatible iOS® device or from any computer with iTunes®. And Bluetooth adds even more wireless music options.

Geared toward great sound

Outstanding audio performance is an integral part of the 'NR676's design. A premium 32-bit/384kHz digital-to-analog converter gives you crystal-clear reproduction of music, TV, and movie soundtracks. Dynamic Audio Amplification delivers massive power with low distortion for thrilling movie sound effects. Phase-matching Bass Enhancement lets you enjoy deep, satisfying low frequency effects while vocals and dialogue remain clear.

This receiver also decodes high-resolution audio formats. And Onkyo's Music Optimizer improves the sound from compressed audio files and Bluetooth streams, so you get clear, detailed sound no matter how you listen.

Music in two rooms

The 'NR676 has outputs for nine speakers, allowing for flexible speaker configurations (but remember, its seven channels can only power seven speakers at once). If you're happy with 5.2-channel surround sound in your living room, you can use the receiver's powered Zone 2 outputs to connect a pair of speakers for stereo sound in another room.

You can also connect a stereo receiver or amplifier through line-level Zone 2 connections and use the 'NR676 as a preamp, for full 7.2-channel surround sound in your home theater and stereo sound in a second room.

A second HDMI output lets you watch the same video source in your main zone and a second room. Start a movie in your living room and finish it in your bedroom or kitchen. Or watch the same content on a TV and projector in the same room. Use the Onkyo Controller app to control playback in different zones from anywhere in the house.

Roon-compatible for serious music lovers

The 'NR676 is also compatible with Roon, a subscription digital music player you download to your smartphone, tablet, or computer. It gives you multi-room audio playback for all your Chromecast-compatible devices and more. Roon accesses your digital music collection from your iTunes library or NAS drive. It also works with your TIDAL subscription. Roon lets you do deep dives into your music, showing artist bios, photos, reviews, and lyrics. Roon can also suggest other artists and songs based on your selections, making it easy to discover new music you'll enjoy.

    Dynamic Audio Amplification: The TX-NR676 AV receiver features Onkyo's Dynamic Audio Amplification with a 7-channel amplifier rated at 100 watts (into 8-ohms, at 20Hz-20kHz, with 0.08%, driving 2 channels). Onkyo's new Dynamic Audio Amplification technology incorporates a Hi-Current, non-phase shift amplifier design with discrete output stage circuitry and a H.C.P.S (High Current Power Supply) capable of driving 4-16 speakers with dynamic control, while producing clear, detailed sound.

    • Hi-Current Amp Design: The unique elements of Onkyo's Dynamic Audio Amplification system comprise high-current, low-impedance architecture with discrete output stage circuitry & custom audio capacitors for instantaneous high-current power and precisely control of your loudspeakers for dynamic, accurate sound.
    • Non-Phase-Shift: Onkyo's Wide Range Amp Technology (WRAT) circuit layout prevents phase shifting by pushing the roll-off point higher than the listening-level frequency. Amplifying sound without phase shift creates an uncommonly well-focused and realistic audio image.
    • H.C.P.S. (High Current Power Supply): The TX-NR676's H.C.P.S. (High Current Power Supply) allows the receiver to deliver large amounts of power necessary for reproducing the wide dynamics of movie soundtracks, plus the detail and clarity of your music.

    Amplifier Assignment: The 7-channel amplifier can be configured in a variety of ways to match your type of speaker setup.

    • Surround Back (7.1ch): The Onkyo TX-NR676 provides 7.1ch surround in your main listening area with dedicated Surround Back speakers.
    • Front Bi-Amp (5.1ch): The Surround-Back/Height speaker terminals can be reassigned and used along with the Front terminals to bi-amp the front speakers, providing improved bass & treble performance. When bi-amping the front speakers the receiver is limited to a 5.1ch speaker system in the main room (no Surround Back or Front Height speakers)
    • Powered Zone 2 (7.1ch + Zone 2): In this configuration, you can connect Front, Center, Surround, Surround Back, and Zone 2 speakers to the AV receiver. When Zone 2 is off, all seven channels will be used in the Main Zone. However, when Zone 2 is on, power to the two surround back (or front height) channels will be directed to the two speakers in Zone 2 and the Main Zone will receive only five channels of power.
    • Dolby Atmos (5.1.2ch): The Surround-Back/Front-High speaker terminals are assigned to power a pair of Front-Height, Rear-Height, Overhead Ceiling, or Dolby Atmos-enabled speakers to create 5.1.2ch Dolby Atmos surround sound. Zone 2 speaker can still be powered by the receiver in the configuration. When Zone 2 is off, all seven channels will be used in the Main Zone for Dolby Atmos. However, when Zone 2 is on, power to the Dolby Atmos channels will be directed to the two speakers in Zone 2 and the Main Zone will receive only five channels of power without Dolby Atmos.

    Dual 32-Bit DSP Engines: The Onkyo TX-NR676 AV receiver employs powerful and highly accurate 32-bit DSP (Digital Signal Processor) engines for better surround sound reproduction.

    384kHz/32-Bit Hi-Grade DAC: The Onkyo TX-NR676 utilizes one premium-quality AK4458 digital-to-analog converter from Asahi Kasei for all channels. This 384kHz/32-bit DAC 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 (MP3, WMA, WMA Lossless, FLAC, WAV, OggVorbis, AAC, Apple Lossless, DSD 5.6 MHz, LPCM, and Dolby TrueHD).

    Vector Linear Shaping Circuitry (Front Channels Only): Onkyo developed Vector Linear Shaping Circuitry (VLSC) to reassemble the signal in its original form following processing. Unlike conventional filters, VLSC removes pulse noise generated in D/A conversion, allowing the sound wave to be reproduced with extremely high fidelity for a smooth analog signal. The signal's data is converted between sampling points and joined with analog vectors in real time to produce a smooth output wave form. The result is a virtually noiseless, smooth, analog signal that brings out even the most subtle of nuances in music sources.

    AccuEQ w/ AccuReflex: AccuEQ conducts two measurements: (1) it measures and sets the distance, sound pressure level and crossover of your speakers and subwoofer to ensure all channels are treated equally (2) it evaluates your room's sonic characteristics and adjusts your speaker's frequency response to prevent standing waves from forming. AccuEQ incorporates AccuReflex technology to align the phase of upfiring "height" speakers with the sound coming directly from your other speakers. Any delay is resolved so that everything arrives at your ears at the same time. The result is cohesive reproduction of object-based soundtracks. You can save up to 3 AccuEQ presets. The included microphone plugs into the front-panel of the receiver.

    Note: You can choose bypass the AccuEQ for your front speakers or all speakers, and manually set the distance, crossover, EQ, and level of each speaker.

    Compatible Digital Audio Formats: The AV receiver supports the following stereo & multichannel digital audio formats through its HDMI jacks and optical/coax digital inputs.

    Digital Audio Connector Audio Signal Type Audio Signal Format
    HDMI 2Ch Linear PCM 2ch, 32-192kHz, 16/20/24-bit
    Multichannel Linear PCM 8ch, 32-192kHz, 16/20/24-bit
    DSD 2ch, 2.8 MHz, 1-bit
    Bitstream Dolby Digital, DTS, DTS ES, DTS 96/24
    High Definition Audio Bitstream Dolby Atmos, Dolby Digital Plus, Dolby TrueHD, DTS:X, DTS-HD Master Audio, DTS-HD High Resolution, DTS Express
    Optical/Coaxial 2Ch Linear PCM 2ch, 32-96kHz, 16/20/24-bit
    Multichannel Linear PCM 6ch, 32-96Hz, 16/20/24-bit
    Bitstream Dolby Digital, DTS, DTS ES, DTS 96/24

    Immersive Surround Sound: The Onkyo TX-NR676 AV receiver goes beyond regular surround with the latest immersive surround sound formats, including Dolby Atmos, Dolby Surround, DTS:X, & DTS Neural:X.

    • Dolby Atmos: With Dolby Atmos, sound comes alive from all directions, including overhead, to fill your home theater with astonishing clarity, power, detail, and depth. The TX-NR676 has the processing power to run a more enveloping 5.1.2ch Dolby Atmos layout utilizing ceiling mounted or Dolby Atmos-enabled speakers (sold separately). A 5.1.2ch speaker configuration is based upon a traditional 5.1 speaker layout complemented by 2 overhead or Dolby Atmos-enabled speakers.
    • Dolby Surround: Dolby Surround offers an enhanced cinema experience to your 2ch or multichannel movie soundtracks using your existing 5.1ch, 7.1ch or Dolby Atmos speaker setup. Dolby Surround enhances audio definition by improving the spatial dimension and overall audio definition of movie soundtracks. It does this by using four distinct surround zones that provide greater control over the exact placement of each detail in a movie sound track, so audio can be matched more accurately to the video on screen; this means more depth and greater realism for your movies. As a result, individual sounds are clearer and more distinct. It also improves the surround sound experience across the entire theater by widening the listening "sweet spot".
    • DTS:X: DTS:X will be enabled through an online firmware update coming later this year. DTS:X is the next generation object-based, multi-dimensional audio technology from DTS. Unbound from channels, DTS:X conveys the fluid movement of sound to create an incredibly rich, realistic and immersive soundscape - in front of, behind, beside and above the audience - more accurately than ever before. DTS:X offers the ability to automatically adapt the audio to the speaker layout that best fits your space.
    • DTS Neural:X: DTS Neural:X will be enabled through an online firmware update coming later this year. DTS:X incorporates Neural:X, the latest spatial remapping technology from DTS, which provides a fully immersive output for all types of source content; this includes DTS bitstreams and non-encoded (PCM) data. Neural:X delivers a thrilling sense of immersive sound to your speaker layout regardless of the original source format.

    Onkyo Original DSP Modes: Onkyo's Original DSP Modes, combined with Dolby Digital & DTS processing, produce more realistic, powerful sound effects for your movie and music sound tracks based on the type of content and your home theater setup. You can choose from the following:

    • Orchestra: Suitable for classical or operatic music. This mode emphasizes the surround channels in order to widen the sound image, and simulates the natural reverberation of a large hall.
    • Studio-Mix: Suitable for rock or pop music. Listening to music in this mode creates a lively sound field with a powerful acoustic image, like being at a club or rock concert.
    • TV Logic: Suitable for TV shows produced in a TV studio. This mode enhances the surround effects to the entire sound to give clarity to voices and create a realistic acoustic image.
    • Unplugged: Suitable for acoustic instruments, vocals and jazz. This mode emphasizes the front stereo image, giving the impression of being right in front of the stage.
    • Multichannel (Multich)/Game:   Multichannel mode is suitable for playing sources recorded in multichannel PCM. The receiver also offers four different Gaming modes - RPG, Action, Rock, and Sports.
    • Stereo/All Channel Stereo (AllCh Stereo): In Stereo mode, sound is output from the front left and right speakers and subwoofer. In All Channel Stereo Mode, stereo sound is output from all speakers - ideal for background music.
    • Mono/Full Mono: In Mono mode, when the input signal is analog or PCM, the left and right front speakers output the sound in monaural. In Full Mono mode, all speakers output the same sound in mono, so the sound you hear is the same regardless of where you are within the listening room.
    • Theater-Dimensional (T-D): In this mode, you can enjoy a virtual playback of multichannel surround sound even with only two or three speakers. This works by controlling how sounds reach the listener's left and right ears

    Direct Mode: In Direct mode, audio from the input source is output without surround-sound processing. This mode delivers pure sound with minimum sound quality adjustment and filtration.

    Audio Enhancements: The Onkyo TX-NR676 receiver provides various audio enhancements to deliver a high-quality listening experience every time.

    • CinemaFilter: The CinemaFilter softens overly bright movie soundtracks. Movie soundtracks are typically mixed for a large theater (relative to your home theater) with lots of soft seats and thick curtains on the walls. Home theater settings often lack these high frequency absorbing wall treatments, making the soundtrack sound too bright. CinemaFilter accounts for this and for many movies sounds more natural at home.
    • Music Optimizer: The Music Optimizer function enhances the sound quality of compressed music files. The Music Optimizer function only works with PCM digital audio input signals with a sampling rate below 48kHz, analog input signals, and Bluetooth audio.
    • Late Night Feature: The Late Night feature limits the dynamic range of Dolby Digital recordings. Limiting the dynamic range makes it easier to find a volume that ensures the quiet sounds are not too quiet and the loud sounds are not too loud for night time listening. This allows you to comfortably listen to without the need to constantly adjust the volume to keep from waking family/neighbors. The choices are: Off, Low, and High. This feature only works with Dolby Digital Encoded software and the depth of the feature will vary based on the individual software package.

    Bass Management: The Onkyo AV receiver offers Tone Control, Phase Matching Bass technology, and a Double Bass feature to get the most bass impact out of your system.

    • Tone Controls: You can independently adjust the Bass (90Hz) and Treble (7.5kHz) of the receiver's Front L/R channels from -10 to +10 dB.
    • Phase Matching Bass: Onkyo's Phase-Matching Bass optimizes low frequencies while preserving mid-range clarity. This means that powerful bass plays back with clear vocals; it doesn't overpower them.
    • Double Bass: You can also activate the Double Bass function in order to boost bass output even more by feeding bass sounds to the front left/right speakers, center-channel, and powered subwoofer.

    Volume Setup: The Onkyo AV receiver provides the following volume settings.

    • IntelliVolume: With IntelliVolume, you can set the input level for each input (+/-12dB) selector individually. This is useful if one of your source components is louder or quieter than the others. This function does not work in Zone 2.
    • Maximum Volume: Use this feature to set the receiver's maximum volume level. This feature is useful to avoid turning the volume too loud by mistake. You can set the Max Volume from 30-79 (max), or Off (disabled).
    • Power On Volume: Use this feature to set the volume level when the power is turned on. You can choose between Last (same as the volume when the unit was turned off), Min (0), or 1-79.
    • Mute Level: Set the volume lowered from the listening volume when "Mute" is selected. Choose from 0, -40dB, or -20 dB.
    • Headphone Level: With this setting, you can specify the headphone volume (+/-12dB) relative to the main volume. This is useful if there's a volume difference between your speakers and your headphones.

    Analog Audio Outputs: The Onkyo TX-NR676 is outfitted with the following analog audio outputs.

    • Binding-Post Speaker Terminals: There are binding-post terminals for all speaker connections - Front, Center, Surround, Surround Back/Height, and Zone 2. The binding post terminals will accept bare-wire, pin-connectors, and banana plugs (single only). Use 4- to 16-ohm speakers.
    • Dual Subwoofer Outputs: The receiver is fitted with two subwoofer outputs to connect dual powered subs for extra bass. The dual outputs are wired in parallel and share the same input signal (the are not discrete).
    • Headphones: When headphones are plugged into the full-size 1/4" jack on the front panel, all the speakers are automatically muted.

    Phono Input: The Onkyo AV receiver is fitted with a Phono (MM) input and ground terminal for connection of a turntable, so you can enjoy listening to your vinyl records.

    Front-Panel Aux Input: The TX-NR676 is fitted with a front-panel 3.5mm Aux input for connecting a portable audio player.

    Video Features

    HDMI 2.0a: The Onkyo TX-NR676 has seven HDMI 2.0a inputs (6 rear/1 front) and dual HDMI 2.0a outputs. The dual HDMI outputs can simultaneously output the same HDMI audio/video signal to two TVs (video is output at the resolution supported by both TVs). Thanks to the latest HDMI 2.0a specification, the receiver can support 4K/60 Hz Ultra-HD video, HDCP 2.2 compatibility, 4:4:4 color sub-sampling, High Dynamic Range (HDR), and BT.2020 Wide Color Gamut.

    • 4K/60Hz: The TX-NR676 supports up to 4K (3840x2160 pixels) video @ 60 frames per second on all of its HDMI inputs and outputs. It will also pass a 480p, 720p, 1080i, or 1080p video signals via HDMI (not compatible with 480i video signals).
    • HDCP 2.2: The receivers HDMI inputs and HDMI outputs support HDCP 2.2, which fully complies with the latest copyright protection standard for 4K video transmission.
    • 4:4:4 Color Subsampling: The receiver's HDMI inputs and HDMI monitor output support RGB, YCbCr 4:4:4, YCbCr 4:2:2, and YCbCr 4:2:0 color subsampling (@ 60Hz or 50Hz). With 4:4:4 color subsampling, luminance (brightness) and chroma (color) are sampled at the same rate; resulting in an RGB color palette as big as the video sampling rate for a video image with more colors, plus greater color accuracy and detail. HDMI inputs 4-8 only support 4K 60/50Hz @ YCbCr 4:2:0.
    • Wide Color Gamut (BT.2020): The BT.2020 color standard delivers a much wider color gamut and represents about 75% of the total visual color spectrum, while the current Rec. 709 color standard selected as the color space for HDTVs and early generation 4K Ultra HDTVs covers only 35% of the total visual color spectrum.
    Note: Use a premium high-speed 18Gbps HDMI cable for the best 4K/HDR performance.

    HDR (High Dynamic Range): HDR (High Dynamic Range) video provides enhanced picture quality by simultaneously enabling greater detail for both the dark and bright parts of an image. HDR reproduces a greater dynamic range of luminosity or brightness levels, creating greater contrast. This increased contrast reveals the subtle nuances of the image, from detailed blacks and shadows to the brightest whites and colors, plus greater depth. This receiver supports two HDR formats - HDR 10 & Dolby Vision.

    • HDR 10: HDR 10 is an open standard and currently the most popular HDR format on the market. It supports 10-bit color and 1,000 nits. It uses static metadata at the start of a movie to tell the receiver and your TV that the video content is encoded using HDR.
    • Dolby Vision: Unlike HDR 10 which contains static metadata, Dolby Vision utilizes dynamic metadata which adjusts brightness, color, and contrast automatically for each scene. Dynamic metadata carries information that maps every image to your TV's display capabilities, so you see more of what the content creator intended. Dolby Vision supports 12-bit color and 10,000 nits.

    Analog Video-to-HDMI Conversion: Analog composite and component video signals (480i only) input to the receiver will be converted to HDMI signals and then output from the receiver via its main HDMI monitor output to your TV. The resolution remains the same and is not upscaled.

    Other HDMI Features: The TX-NR676 AV receiver's HDMI connectivity also offers 3D video pass-through, ARC (Audio Return Channel), Deep Color & x.v. Color support, as well as an auto LipSync function.

    The FireStick connets to through HDMI, so virtually any receiver with an available HDMI input will work. I have the Onkyo TX-NR676 which has a dedicated HDMI input labeled "Stream Box" which I use to connect my Chromecast, with the video being fed via the HDMI RC into my LG TV.

    Q
    How can I set up the TX-NR676 to play 5.1 sound in my main room, with stereo speakers in a secondary room, playing the same source (TV, DVD, CD, whatever) in both rooms? i.e. If I am watching a DVD or movie or listening to an album in the main room (5.1 setup) and I go into the secondary room (which in my case happens to be a bathroom) I want to continue listening to the same sound (but in stereo.)

    Pressing the Zone 2 button causes "Z2:..." to display for a few seconds. While that is displayed press Zone 2 again to display "Z2: Source". This causes zone 2 to play the same input as the main room, and zone 2 will follow the main room source if you select a different input source. If you want zone 2 to stay on a specific source, press the Zone 2 button followed by a source button (i.e. "Net"). That source can be different from the main room and will not change if you select a different main room source. Also, while "Z2:..." is displayed you can adjust the zone 2 volume with the volume control.
    [ BRENT  Sep 05, 2018 ]

    I haven't hooked up this unit yet but I have an older model that I'm still using and if you engage zone 2, you just stay with "source"; if you want a different thing to play, you turn the zone knob to the preferred source

    I use my Onkyo for music most of the time. It has an aux jack in front that you can plug a smart phone into...but I usually use the Bluetooth for that. I also have a CD player hooked. I do have 5.1 speakers all around and they all work great for playing music. But you can just use two speakers if that is all you have. I love this unit. For the money you cant beat it.

    Q
    How to activate Zone 2 for CBL/SAT feature? It works on all other features such as tuner, but I cannot get sound from the CBL/SAT button which connects my cable box.
    [ John  Jul 20, 2018 ]
    1 answer
    A
    Zone 2 can only take analog audio. So you need RCA red/white cables to come out of your cable or satellite box or DVD or Xbox or whatever. My DVD, though, for example, only had a digital out. So I had to buy a digital to analog converter box - digital cable into the converter and RCA red and white out. It works beautifully now. It's kind of a drag these receiver manufacturers don't have a better comprehension of what people actually need to do. It's a great receiver but you have to do some hacks to get what you want, particularly with Zone 2.

    Good question! There are outputs for "zone 2" for your outdoor speakers. However, I have had some issues trying to make use of this, and have NOT been able to get the TV sound to come out on zone 2 even though it looks like it should. On other inputs like bluetooth, sound comes in fine on zone 2. If you figure it out, let the rest of us know!

    can I play music inside the house and them play music out side without having the speakers playing inside? if i hook up outside speakers to zone 2, will it only play the speakers outside?
    [ Hollywood  Jun 23, 2018 ]

    A
    Yes, you can have each zone play its own music source, e.g. zone 2 streaming internet music while main zone watches TV. This also means the main zone can be off while zone 2 listens to an audio source. I have found that using the smartphone app is the best way to manage the zones. It is convoluted using the IR remote.

    For best results I suggest using the best pair of front tower speakers your space and budget allows, a quality center channel speaker,a minimum 10"subwoofer,(12"works great),and two rear surround speakers.This will work for a home theater set up or to listen to any music you want to listen.Be sure to use 12 gauge oxygen free copper wire, for all of your speaker connections!!

    Try changing your HDMI cable to a better cable
    [ richard  Jun 11, 2018 ]
    A
    Im not a pro, but this is a hand shake symptom in my opinion. Have you tried a new HDMI cable? Are you sure there is no damage to the HDMI ports on the TV or the Receiver? I just installed the ONKYO and used HDMI extensions, about $5 a piece via Amazon as I have damaged ports before because they the cable had lateral tension. Its not fun when that happens. It could be the Cable box or other input. Does it happen with DVD/Blue player? Apple TV/Firestick/Ruku inputs? Read up on handshake issues. Sorry I can't be more help! Often its trail and error to fix something and a process of elimination. Keep extra cables and adapters to easily switch things out.. You have to go thru each piece and find what works, and what does not. Sorry, this receiver is new to me and I can't remember if you can bypass it, which you should try if possible as it might be the receiver's software. Do things work without the recieverr??? Try lots of things, maybe you get it, maybe not. GOOD LUCK!!!

    Is this reciever compatible with Alexa?
    [ Xavier  May 30, 2018 ]
    4 answers
    A
    Here's the REAL answer = Yes and No. For example, I've got a Logitech Harmony Elite remote connected to all of my AV gear, including my Onkyo TX-NR676, and I've got my Alexa Echo Show connected to the Harmony remote. When, for example, you walk into the room and say, 'Alexa, let's watch a movie', she turns on the overhead lights and dims them to 10%, turns on the TV and set it to the appropriate input, turns on the Apple TV, turns on the Onkyo and set that to the appropriate input, and then presets the receiver volume to 25. So, while the Onkyo itself does not respond to Alexa, there is an excellent and seamless way to get this to work - Alexa won't talk directly to the Onkyo, but she WILL talk to the Harmony remote, which in turn will talk to the Onkyo. Mine works flawlessly.

    Can you connect to Netflix or Amazon Prime movies through the 676?
    [ Kevin  Sep 23, 2017 ]
    1 answer
    A
    Both of these "content streamers" require a relative fast Internet. The 676 does not have Netflix or Prime software on it per se. But, in my setup, I can run Netflix et al either from my TV, or my BluRay player, my TiVo, or a streaming service (Apple TV, Roku etc.) And your computer can wirelessly "cast" or Airplay Netflix to your system. The 676 is involved in all of this, but it is a conduit to said services. Clear as mud, but feel free to ask a followup if I didn't get the gist of your concern.
