Grab some popcorn and settle in
The meteoric rise in the production quality of TV shows is an entertainment trend worth celebrating. Fan-favorite series like Game of Thrones and Stranger Things offer cinema-level soundtracks and special effects, which make watching them in surround sound at home an absolute blast.
Cue the Onkyo TX-NR595. This budget-friendly home theater receiver occupies a sweet spot within Onyko’s 2019 lineup. It’s the least expensive model that offers wireless streaming capability — which means you can set up a full 7.2-channel Dolby Atmos® surround sound system, and also stream music through Apple AirPlay 2 and Bluetooth. Talk about value!
A true home theater, and more
This receiver can power up to seven speakers at the same time, giving you flexibility for different home theater and wired multi-room music configurations.
Use all seven channels in a 5.1.2 Atmos or DTS:X™ system, or go with a more modest 5.1 surround sound setup and repurpose the extra channels for music in another zone.
At 80 watts per channel, the ‘595 pairs nicely with most bookshelf, in-wall, and in-ceiling speakers. It’s a great choice if you’re powering a surround sound system in a small- to medium-sized room.
Works with Sonos
If you’re a Sonos lover like I am, the ‘NR595 easily integrates into your wireless multi-room music system. Just add a Sonos Port, and you can send any music or audio source from the Sonos app to the receiver. The ‘NR595 will even automatically turn on and switch to the correct input when you fire it up in the Sonos app.
Geared toward great sound
Outstanding audio performance is an integral part of the ‘NR595’s design. A premium 32-bit/384kHz digital-to-analog converter gives you crystal-clear reproduction of soundtracks.
Dynamic Audio Amplification delivers massive power with low distortion for thrilling movie sound effects. And Specialized Vector Linear Shaping Circuitry (try saying that three times fast!) filters out noise across the two front channels for faithful reproduction of the original audio signal.
