The TX-NR636 wins prime position on your gear rack for three reasons. Firstly, it’s among one of the few A/V receivers to support Dolby Atmos® multidimensional sound following a quick firmware update. Dolby Atmos very accurately places and moves sound around the theater, including overhead, for a breathtakingly realistic movie experience. This receiver is also ready for Ultra HD streaming and 4K gaming at 60 fps with the latest 4K/60 Hz HDMI® 2.0 inputs and HDCP 2.2 compatibility. Qdeo™ upscaling technology is included to convert low-res video into pin-sharp Full HD or Ultra HD. Secondly, it sounds incredible, with high-current Three-Stage Inverted Darlington Circuitry on the L/R/C channels for all-enveloping surround sound and musical two-channel audio. Thirdly, it’s simple to use with Wi-Fi® and Bluetooth for universal audio streaming via PC, NAS, and mobiles, plus there’s a huge selection of music streaming services waiting for you to explore. Overlaid menus with InstaPrevue™ technology make loading content quick and easy. Throw in a phono equalizer and Powered Zone 2 and you’ve got a value-packed powerhouse ready for the next wave of high-resolution entertainment.
Onkyo is among the first to introduce Dolby Atmos sound to home theaters. Dolby Atmos uses object-based mixing techniques to layer independent audio elements through discrete channels, placing and moving sound effects above and around the listener with astonishing realism. The format adapts to any home theater layout augmented by two or more in-ceiling height speakers or Dolby Atmos-enabled front speakers to bring sound alive from all directions.
Imagine playing the latest RPG blockbuster on your Ultra HDTV at a breathtaking 60 frames per second. Now add thunderous 7.2-channel surround sound from Onkyo. With HDMI terminals on your TX-NR636 receiver supporting 4K/60 Hz, this dream can be your reality. Even if you’re not planning on upgrading your current display right away, it’s good to know your receiver is ready for the future.
With Hollywood studios, satellite TV broadcasters, and video streaming services announcing a move to HDCP 2.2 copy protection for future 4K and Full HD releases, it’s important that your A/V receiver can handle this new standard. The TX-NR636 is one of the first A/V receivers to support HDCP 2.2, making it ready for next-generation Ultra HD streaming and broadcasting.
The TX-NR636 has Wi-Fi and Bluetooth technology built in. Complete the setup, download our control app, and you’ve got a graphic remote control and range of streaming features in the palm of your hand. Or pair your Bluetooth-capable device and stream almost any audio to your home theater. With Advanced Music Optimizer enhancement, music via Bluetooth has never sounded so good.
WRAT (Wide Range Amplifier Technology) is all about high current. You need it to stay in control when speaker impedance fluctuates, and to grip without clipping as the soundtrack explodes into action. We use a massive high-power transformer driving ultra-low-distortion Three-Stage Inverted Darlington Circuitry*. Combined with high-resolution processing, the TX-NR636 packs a colossal punch for movies while retaining musicality for two-channel playback.
Onkyo A/V receivers are engineered for universal hi-res compatibility and ease of use. Use the remote app to locate your 192/24 and 96/24 albums (including 5.6 MHz DSD playback) on PC or NAS and bask in the clarity, depth, and detail of high-resolution music.
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.
