Bringing Next-Generation Entertainment to Your Home

The TX-NR636 is one of the only A/V receivers to feature the latest HDMI supporting 4K/60 Hz and 21:9 display format and HDCP 2.2 copy-protection compatibility. Qdeo™ upscaling technology also converts low-res DVDs and games into pin-sharp Full HD or 4K (if you have an Ultra HD display). TX-NR636 paves the way for Ultra HD video playback at a liquid-smooth 60 frames per second. This is great news for PC gamers who can now add wall-shaking surround sound to their 4K/60 Hz experience.

Onkyo's acclaimed WRAT (Wide Range Amplifier Technology), which provides the backbone that delivers Onkyo's classic sound, is coupled with Three-stage inverted Darlington Circuitry to the LCR channel to provide a big soundstage, superb timing, brilliant definition, and enough low-end grunt to make your speakers sing. The TX-NR636 packs a colossal punch for movies but still retains the pure musicality you need for two-channel playback.

Built-in Wi-Fi® for universal hi-res streaming from PC, NAS, and smartphone is just the beginning. You can select from a wild variety of music streaming services and locate your network-attached libraries using the remote app, or stream almost any audio via built in Bluetooth. An HDMI/MHL terminal connects smartphones to display 1080p video with 7.1 channels of surround sound. Throw in a dedicated phono input, room equalization, and powered Zone 2 and you've got a value-packed 7.2-channel powerhouse ready for the next wave of high-resolution entertainment.


Supporting Next Generation HDMI and HDCP 2.2 Copy Protection

The TX-NR636 is the first receiver to boast not only the latest HDMI connections supporting 4K/60Hz and 21:9 format, but also the latest Digital Rights Management (DRM) copy protection compatibility, HDCP 2.2. By implementing the latest HDMI connections, supporting 4k/60Hz with HDCP 2.2, latest content-protection method adopted for future premium 4K studio releases, 4K streaming via internet service providers, as well as for UHD terrestrial and satellite broadcasts, the TX-NR636 paves the way for Ultra HD video playback. Even if you're not planning on upgrading your current display right away, it's good to know your Onkyo receiver is ready for the future of gaming and video entertainment.

Wi-Fi and Bluetooth Inside

The TX-NR636 has Wi-Fi and Bluetooth technologies built in. No wires, no dongles, no mess. Complete the one-time Wi-Fi setup, download our free control app for iOs and Android devices, and you've got a full range of remote control and audio streaming features in the palm of your hand. You can also pair your Bluetooth-capable device and stream direct to your home theater. With Advanced Music Optimizer DSP compensating for compression, music via Bluetooth has never sounded better.

Built-in Internet Radio and Streaming

If you can think of it, you'll most likely be able to stream it on your TX-NR636. The receiver comes loaded with Spotify, Pandora, SiriusXM Internet Radio, Rhapsody, AUPEO! and TuneIn, You can select a station and search for music available on these services via the free Onkyo app on your phone so you'll never be short of your favorite music to enjoy.


Hi-Fi Power and Fidelity

WRAT (Wide Range Amplifier Technology) is all about current. Receivers need a lot of current not only to handle the sudden explosive actions scenes but also to reproduce the detail of quiet passages. We use a massive high-power transformer to drive discrete amps that help eliminate distortion and preserve the energy of music and movies. Delivering 115 watts per channel, the TX-NR636 packs a colossal punch for movies but still retains the pure musicality you need for two-channel playback. Also, Phase-Matching Bass Enhancement optimizes low frequencies while preserving mid- range clarity. It counters phase shifting by synchronizing the timing of different frequencies. The result is deep, well- defined bass that won't blur vocals or strings.

Exclusive AccuEQ Room Calibration

Calibrating the sound to suit your room's acoustics is simple with AccuEQ. Once you've connected your speakers, plug-in the included mic and wait a few moments as the TX-NR636 measures things such as speaker distance, type, crossover, and output, taking into account any reflections from your walls and floor. The system is designed specifically to by-pass your front left and right speakers. The system then optimizes the frequency response of the remaining speakers so you can enjoy balanced surround sound regardless of room shape or furnishing while retaining the characteristics of your front left and right speakers for optimum enjoyment.
