Boasting a THX Select2 Plus certification and the 3-stage Inverted Darlington circuitry, this receiver can harness all of the seven channels while also ensuring reference-level playback of high-resolution media. This power-packed system comes equipped with WRAT (Wide Range Amplifier Technology) that uses low negative-feedback and closed ground loop circuit to reduce signal noise and distortion. Also, the phase-matching bass improves sound clarity by optimizing low-frequency sound output.
This 3D-ready A/V Receiver delivers lossless, high-definition audio using Dolby Pro Logic IIz that offers front height channels with 7.1-channel upmixing and DTS-HD Master audio formats. These formats are carried by 8 HDMI inputs, which also support 4k up-scaling and pass-through.

The 2 outputs come with Audio return channel that lets you amp up your TV volume through the receiver. The system also features 2 USB ports that can be used to connect to iOS-enabled media players or mass storage devices for instant audio playback. The USB port gives a direct digital signal for rich sound quality.

MultEQ equalizes your system to tailor the sound to suit the unique shape of your room. Measuring 6 listening positions, MultEQ applies filters to satellites and subwoofers to create a perfectly balanced soundstage.
Audyssey Dynamic EQ
Dynamic EQ solves the problem of deteriorating sound quality at low volume. It selects the best frequency response and surround levels moment-by-moment, resulting in an optimal listening experience at any volume.
Audyssey Dynamic Volume
Audyssey Dynamic Volume compensates for volume fluctuations in different audio content, for example, during noisy commercial breaks, and adjusts the volume in real time.
Audyssey DSX and Dolby Pro Logic IIz for Expanded Surround Sound
Audyssey DSX lets you augment your setup with two Front Wide channels, expanding the width of the soundstage, or two front height speakers to add a vertical dimension to movies and games. Dolby Pro Logic IIz offers front height channels with 7.1-channel up mixing from stereo sources.
App-Controllable Multi-Zone Audio
The TX-NR727 features Powered Zone 2 outputs and Zone 2/3 line-outputs. This lets you assign 2 channels to power audio in a room equipped with speakers. An existing hi-fi system in a third room can also be connected via the line-out, enabling the use of the A/V receiver as a pre-amp and audio server. Control content in all 3 zones via remote app; play the same song in all zones; or enjoy a different song in every room.
Phase-Matching Bass Enhancement
Onkyo's PM Bass optimizes low frequencies while preserving mid-range clarity. It counters phase shifting (which can affect sound quality) by synchronizing the timing of different frequencies. The result is deep, well-defined bass that won't overwhelm vocals or strings.
Hybrid Standby Power-Saving Mode
HDMI pass-through and network connectivity are maintained while the receiver is powered down. This facilitates use of your TV and other devices without turning on the receiver, saving energy.
