The Onkyo TX-NR686 brings you universal wireless connectivity with sound that fills the whole room.

THX® Certified Select reference sound
THX Certified Select guarantees the high-volume sound experienced at a commercial cinema in your home. To gain certification, amplifiers must pass severe THX bench-tests covering every aspect of audio performance. THX Certified Select components suit rooms where screen-to-seat viewing distance is about 3 meters and room volume around 57 cubic meters.
Dolby Atmos® and DTS:X® with upmixing solutions
Object-based audio lets sounds play independently through any speaker, moving all around your audience so they feel 5.2.2-ch Dolby Atmos or DTS:X soundtracks with natural conviction. DTS Neural:X® and Dolby Surround upmixing solutions find spatial cues in legacy multichannel soundtracks and upmix them for 3D audio playback through your object-audio-ready speaker system. Both solutions offer cross-compatible support for common movie soundtracks, such as Dolby® Digital 5.1, Dolby® TrueHD, and DTS-HD Master Audio, so you can enjoy more immersive 3D sound from your movie library as well as with supported video streaming services.
Onkyo Controller app for easy multi-room management
Onkyo Controller app collects streaming services and network-attached audio into one intuitive interface. Control playback, navigate internet services, and distribute audio all over the home with ease.

Stream any music from your smartphone, laptop, or PC to the TX-NR686 with ease. Control playback with Chromecast enabled apps you know and love from your iPhone, iPad, Android phone or tablet, Mac® or Windows® laptop, or Chromebook. If you have a speaker device featuring the Google Assistant, such as the Onkyo Smart Speaker G3, you can cue, play, and control music playback on your TX-NR686 by voice.

Give life to sound with Dynamic Audio Amplification
High-current power is proven by an ability to drive four-ohm speaker loads, which test the toughest multichannel amplifier. Heaps of muscle means superior control for fast dynamics and high energy. Non-phase-shift amps present a detailed and cohesive audio image, while VLSC eliminates high-frequency distortion for ultimate clarity of sound.
