Product Description

This Onkyo network receiver is a winner in three areas. Firstly, its video performance is unrivalled. An HQV Vida VHD1900 processor upscales content to 1080p, with Qdeo technology taking full HD out to an eye-popping 4K. An ISF system calibrates video from all inputs to industry standards, and the resulting picture is spectacular. Secondly, audio performance is unmatched, as proven by THX Select2 Plus certification. The receiver delivers er effortlessly through three-stage inverted Darlington circuitry and 192 kHz/24-bit DACs. Finally, you get more setup flexibility. There are eight HDMI inputs-including an MHL for smart phones-and two outputs. Two USB ports connect iPod/iPhone and LAN adaptor, enabling wireless PC and online audio. Three mind-blowing sound expansion systems are included-Audyssey DSX, DTS Neo:X, and Dolby Pro Logic IIz-assisted by Audyssey MultEQ XT32 room correction. Digital crossover processing, front channel bi-amping capability, and three-zone audio distribution grant the freedom to customize. With new InstaPrevue input selection technology and intuitive system control via iPhone and Android phone, now is the time to upgrade to an Onkyo.

THX in Onkyo Hear Precisely What The Director Intended

THX ensures what you hear through this Onkyo is precisely what was recorded. Select2 Plus certification is specified for rooms where the screen-to-seat viewing distance is ten to twelve feet, and the room volume is around 2000 cubic feet. To achieve THX certification, the TX-NR818 had to meet the most demanding standards for home cinema audio quality and performance.
Onkyo Wireless NetworkAccess Endless Music Possibilities

Onkyo network receivers, which are also wireless LAN ready, have access to the most internet music content services, including: Pandora®, Slacker™, SIRIUS XM®, Last.fm, vTuner, Rhapsody, Spotify, and AUPEO!. You can even connect to DLNA servers on your network. Internet connectivity also makes firmware updates simpler than ever.
InstaPrevue Easy, Live Source Selection

This AVR incorporates InstaPrevue visual port management technology, making input source selection much easier. InstaPrevue provides a live video thumbnail of the available content on your devices connected via HDMI.
MHL Watch Your Smartphone Content on TV

MHL allows you to display full 1080p video and still images on your HDTV with up to 7.1 channels of surround sound. Use the receiver's remote to control playback from your phone as it receives a handy recharge.
Onkyo remote appsFree Apps: Seamless Control & Streaming

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, and Kindle Fire. Integrated house-wide entertainment is now a reality.

Dual Core Video Processor for 1080p and 4k High-Definition Precision


Two of the best video processing and enhancement systems guarantee smooth and accurate images on your HDTV. The Vida VHD1900 upscales analog content to 1080p, and enhances native high-def sources. Auto HQV™ enhances the image, while HQV StreamClean™ cleans up video from lower-quality online sources. Marvell Qdeo™ Technology upscales 1080p sources to 4K (3840 x 2160). Played back on a compatible 4K display, your high-definition content will look more cinematic than ever.

ISF Video Calibration: Amazing Picture Quality, Assured

ISF (Imaging Science Foundation) video calibration dramatically improves picture quality. Each video input source is independently calibrated to achieve the best possible performance from your connected HDTV.
Apple TV OnkyoApple TV- Friendly

Have an Apple TV? The Onkyo remote is preset to control Apple TV. Use it with your Onkyo Network AVR. It's all integrated, and it all works together beautifully.
Made for iPod iPhone Direct Digital Connection: The Cleanest Your iPod Can Sound

The front-panel USB port lets you play MP3 and AAC stored in an iPod/iPhone, and MP3, WMA, AAC, and FLAC audio files stored on a flash-memory device, and you can use the system's own remote for track selection and playback. Your music will sound much cleaner and clearer, as the audio signal is transported in digital rather than analog form through the direct digital connection.
 
green smart grid readySave Power With Hybrid Standby

Hybrid Standby provides 'HDMI through' functionality while the receiver sleeps, so you don't have to fully power up to watch a Blu-ray or play a game using just your TV's sound. The receiver also maintains a local network connection when on Hybrid Standby mode, so you can switch the unit on at any time using the Onkyo remote apps for iPod touch/iPhone and Android, and Kindle Fire.
