Onkyo TX-NR525 overview

  • 1Description

Magnify your entertainment experience with the Onkyo TX-NR525 5.2-Channel Network A/V Receiver. This power-packed system comes equipped with WRAT (wide range amplifier technology) that uses a 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 system delivers lossless, high-definition audio using Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio formats. These formats are carried by 6 HDMI inputs, which also support 4k up-scaling and pass-through. The single output comes with an Audio Return Channel that lets you amp up your TV volume through the receiver. The system also features 2 USB ports you that can be connected to any Apple or mass storage devices for instant audio playback. The USB port gives a direct digital signal and a purer sound quality.

The remote control app on your TX-NR525 lets you monitor playback, adjust settings, and handle content on your home theater system via your Apple or Android device. And, it also allows you to stream audio from your iPhone or Android device directly to your receiver. Using a free app, you can connect this receiver to your home network for internet radio and music streaming.

Wireless- & Bluetooth-Ready

With an aptX enhancement codec and Bluetooth 3.0, the UBT-1 adapter (sold separately) offers wireless sound quality approaching that of CD audio. Simply plug it into the USB port to send audio from a range of electronic devices, including phones, tablets, and laptop computers.

HDMI for High-Resolution Playback

The TX-NR525's six HDMI inputs take surround sound formats from Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio, and support 3D video. The single output has an Audio Return Channel, so you can boost your TV's sound through your receiver. Also, this receiver allows for pass-through of 4K resolution signals from source devices (like a Blu-ray player) to an appropriate display.

Wide Range Amplifier Technology

From quiet passages to booming explosions, Onkyo's exclusive WRAT (Wide Range Amplifier Technology) enhances the audio of your movies, music and games like never before.

Good Quality Digital-to-Analog Converter

This receiver employs a 192 kHz/24-bit TI Burr-Brown DAC for good dynamic performance and improved tolerance to clock jitter, which translates as clearer, more expressive sound from your speakers.

Clear Sound for Your Mobile Music

The TX-NR525 features 2 USB ports to connect iPod/iPhone and mass storage devices loaded with music. The direct digital connection carries signals to the receiver in digital format and gives a noticeable boost to audio quality.

High-Quality Internet Music

This receiver boasts of popular music streaming and Internet radio services, which you can browse using the free app. You can also stream audio stored on your iPhone or Android device directly to your receiver.

Quick & Easy Remote App

The Onkyo remote app for iPod touch/iPhone and Android devices is a convenient way to control your home entertainment from anywhere within wireless range. The app has a clear graphical interface to control playback, adjust settings and handle content across multiple zones.

Deep, Defined, Powerful Bass & Clear Vocals

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.

Audyssey MultEQ (Auto Speaker Calibration with Mic)

MultEQ room-correction technology delivers clear, well-balanced, natural sound.

Audyssey Dynamic EQ

Dynamic EQ maintains consistent bass, tonal and surround sound effects at different volume levels.

Audyssey Dynamic Volume

Dynamic Volume automatically compensates for volume fluctuations, for example during loud commercial breaks.
