Liberate Your Music with AirPlay
Expand your playback options and revel in the freedom of fully integrated AirPlay for iPod touch, iPhone, iPad, and iTunes-equipped personal computers. Just select your home theater as the destination for your wireless audio stream, sit back, and immerse yourself in the superlative sonic performance of your Onkyo A/V system. Personal computers (both Mac and PC) with appropriate iTunes software can also send high-fidelity audio over the network to your home theater.
THX® Select2 Plus™ Certified
THX Select2 Plus certification is specified for rooms where the screen-to-seat viewing distance is three to four meters and the room volume is around 56 cubic meters. To achieve THX Select2 Plus certification, the TX-NR616AE had to meet the world’s most demanding standards for home theater audio quality and performance, and play at reference volume levels with minimal distortion.
Audyssey DSX® and Dolby® Pro Logic® IIz for Three-Dimensional Surround Sound
The TX-NR616AE incorporates surround-sound technologies from Audyssey and Dolby to offer greater flexibility in the setup of your home theater. Audyssey DSX can expand 5.1-channel audio soundtracks to incorporate additional Front Height channels, while the Dolby system also adds two Height channels and stereo source expansion. A seven-channel set-up provides a more detailed, realistic, and three-dimensional soundtrack, with the extra channels carrying subtle directional and ambient effects.
