It’s simply the best-equipped, best-sounding 9.2-channel solution available for next-generation entertainment.
Dolby Atmos® Multidimensional Sound
Onkyo is among the first to introduce the exciting Dolby Atmos surround-sound format to home theater environments. Dolby Atmos uses object-oriented mixing to layer independent audio elements through discrete channels, moving three-dimensional sound effects around the theater with astonishing realism. The format adapts to any home theater layout incorporating height channels for a more enveloping soundfield with extremely accurate directional and overhead effects.
Onkyo Sound is Emotion, Delivered
Drivers don’t judge sports cars on top speed alone. Acceleration, cornering, and braking are equally important. It’s the same with A/V receivers—wattage is only an indication of loudness, not sound quality. The real test is current. High instantaneous current enhances speaker control for accurate and musical audio reproduction. It’s the cornerstone of our amplification philosophy—no other brand can match Onkyo for dynamic driving power. We don’t just translate signals into sound. We create sound you can feel.
Engineered for Pure Exhilaration
Best-in-class high-current capability is achieved with Wide Range Amplifier Technology (WRAT). At its core are a custom high-output transformer, customized 18,000 μF capacitors, and low-impedance copper bus-plates with separate processing and amplification blocks. Seven two-channel 192 kHz/24-bit TI Burr-Brown DACs and two 32-bit DSP engines handle audio processing with Three-Stage Inverted Darlington Circuitry amplification and discrete low-impedance output transistors delivering instantaneous power. The pinnacle of over 65 years’ audio engineering experience, WRAT preserves the vitality of the master recording.
THX® Select2™ Plus for Reference-Level Sound
THX certification guarantees the same high-volume sound you experience in a multiplex theater. Your TX-NR1030 receiver has passed more than 2,000 laboratory tests to ensure every aspect of audio performance meets rigorous standards for theater reference sound. THX Select2 Plus is recommended for screen-to-seat viewing distances of three to four meters.
HDMI® 2.0 for 4K/60 Hz Video and HDCP 2.2
All HDMI terminals feature the latest HDMI specification to support 4K video at 60 frames per second and 21:9 theater aspect. Now you can add enveloping 9.2-channel surround-sound to next-generation Ultra HD games and video for a breathtaking entertainment experience. The TX-NR1030 also supports HDCP 2.2 DRM copy protection via HDMI Input 3 and the main output, which is essential for viewing premium streamed and broadcast Ultra HD content.
4K Video Upscaling and ISF Calibration
The TX-NR1030 includes industry-leading Qdeo™ 4K upscaling technology, which converts low-resolution video to liquid-smooth 1080p (for a Full HD display) or 4K on compatible Ultra HD sets. Selectable ISF video calibration further optimizes picture quality for stunning images in bright or low-light conditions.
AccuEQ Calibration for Pure Audio Performance
As part of our Emotion, Delivered audio concept, which brings together technologies that significantly improve both stereo and multichannel sound quality, Onkyo introduces the powerful AccuEQ room calibration system. AccuEQ measures and corrects speaker distances, levels, crossovers, and frequency response from one convenient listening position to ensure clear and cohesive surround-sound while enabling playback of 7.1-channel formats at 96 kHz (no down-sampling). For the ultimate in pure stereo performance, AccuEQ bypasses the front channels so the unique characteristics of your loudspeakers can be enjoyed without DSP correction to potentially alter the sound.
