High Fidelity Entertainment for Your Whole Home
With the power to fill large rooms with THX®-certified sound, this cutting-edge receiver is ready to integrate and distribute entertainment throughout your home. More than a home theater processor, the TX-NR717 allows you to access music on PC, stream from MP3tunes, explore online radio, or connect your iPod/iPhone to one of two USB ports. You can distribute any of these various stereo sources to other rooms for house-wide entertainment. With a total of 10 HDMI® connections, this receiver converges HD content from all your components—even your smart phone media via a frontside MHL/HDMI—and provides easy input selection with InstaPrevue™ technology. HDMI also enables intuitive GUI with overlaid Quick Set-Up menu. Visually managing settings and playback—even across multiple zones—is easy with the Onkyo Remote App for iPhone and Android phones. Video upscaling to 4K, Audyssey DSX® seven-channel sound expansion, and Audyssey 2EQ® room correction are all included. Sound quality is quite simply the best in class, with powerful WRAT amplifier, three-stage inverted Darlington circuitry, and discrete output stage components delivering an otherworldly entertainment experience.
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-NR717 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.
Innovative Design Delivers Spectacular Sound
The TX-NR717 incorporates three-stage inverted Darlington circuitry—an enhancement to Onkyo’s proven WRAT (Wide Range Amplifier Technology)—and discrete output stage components. The design ensures low negative feedback for reduced distortion and improved handling of speaker impedance fluctuations. Quality circuitry dovetails with a heavy-duty power supply for instantaneous response to signal gains. Furthermore, PLL (Phase Locked Loop) jitter-cleaning technology enhances digital processing by removing clock noise. The result is clear, effortless sound under heavy loads.
Entertain Your Friends and Family
The TX-NR717 can assign its Front High or Front Wide channel outputs to power speakers in two other rooms of your home. You can play music in the main room and Zone 2—or, alternatively, Zone 3—at the same time, or play a different audio source in either room. Use your stereo amp to power one of the rooms and enjoy any audio source from the receiver in all three zones simultaneously, controllable with Onkyo Remote Apps for iPhone and Android phone. Integrated house-wide entertainment is now a reality.
