 HDMI® Support for 3D Video and Audio Return Channel

The four HDMI inputs on the TX-NR579 let you simultaneously connect high-def sources such as a Blu-ray player, a gaming console, and a cable/satellite tuner. A single output then sends a pristine signal to your connected highresolution display. The HDMI implementation on this receiver supports both 3D video and an Audio Return Channel, along with numerous high-resolution formats. 3D video brings exciting possibilities to home entertainment, with movie, game, and broadcast content on the increase and 3D-compatible TVs now on the market. Meanwhile, the Audio Return Channel allows audio content received directly by your HDTV’s tuner to be sent “upstream” via HDMI to your A/V receiver, without the need for a separate S/PDIF audio cable.
Network Capability Delivers Internet Radio and Network Audio Streaming via Ethernet
As one of Onkyo’s new breed of receivers that can link directly to the internet or to your home PC via a local network, the TX-NR579 takes streaming audio and internet radio to a whole new level. MP3, WMA, WMA Lossless, FLAC, WAV, Ogg Vorbis, AAC, and LPCM audio files** can now be played back through your main system with unprecedented power and fidelity. The TX-NR579 also brings to life a huge array of internet radio channels from vTuner. As well as being compatible with earlier platforms, the receiver is compatible with Microsoft’s Windows® 7 platform, which includes the DLNA 1.5-specified “Play To” media-streaming feature. The TX-NR579’s internet connectivity has the added benefit of making firmware updates simpler than ever.
*Availability of services depends on region.
**Not all servers or platforms support all formats.
Direct Digital Audio Connection of iPod/iPhone via Front-Panel USB Port
The TX-NR579’s front-panel USB port lets you access MP3, WMA, WMA Lossless, FLAC, WAV, Ogg Vorbis, and AAC audio files stored on a USB flash drive or iPod/iPhone. As the audio signals are transported in digital form, rather than analog, there is much less chance for signal degradation. End result: your music sounds cleaner and more faithful to the original. A further benefit of the USB input is that it lets you use the system’s remote controller to play back audio files on the connected device.
Onkyo Remote App for iPod/iPhone*
Available as a free download, this app lets you use your iPod touch or iPhone as a remote controller to control a range of functions on the TX-NR579. As well as letting you select internet radio stations, it also lets you select streaming audio input from a DLNA-compatible server. The Remote App also enables you to perform basic playback operations and control the receiver’s volume with an interface that uses the iPod/iPhone’s built-in accelerometer.
*Compatible iPod/iPhone models: iPod touch 3rd generation or later; iPhone 3GS or
later. (All models require iOS 4.2 or later.)
4K Video Upscaling and Processing via Qdeo™ Technology
The TX-NR579 offers full 4K (3840 x 2160) upscaling of standard video sources such as 480i/p, 720p, and 1080i/p. Interlaced-to-progressive conversion and scaling are performed by high-quality Qdeo technology from Marvell. Qdeo is a versatile video processor that uses algorithms designed to erase video noise and artifacts such as jaggies and feathering. Played back on a compatible wide-screen display, your Blu-ray Discs and DVDs will look more detailed and cinematic than ever.
Universal Port for Single-Cable Connection of Optional Onkyo Dock for iPod/iPhone + DAB+ Digital Radio Tuner
A proprietary Universal Port located on the rear side of the TX-NR579 lets you connect an optional UP-A1 Dock for iPod/iPhone or UP-DT1 DAb+ Digital Radio Tuner. A key advantage of the Universal Port is that it accepts video and audio signals through the same cable that sends a power supply from the receiver to the devices. Net result: more connectivity, less cable clutter.
Overlaid Graphical On-Screen Display and GUI Navigation
Changing the TX-NR579’s settings is a seamless affair, thanks to the receiver’s overlaid graphical On-Screen Display (OSD). Set-up menus appear overlaid on the video image you’re watching, so you don’t have to switch to a blank screen background. Meanwhile, a new GUI lets you smoothly navigate internet radio and iPod/iPhone contents. The OSD and GUI both operate over HDMI, making excellent use of that versatile interface.
A Suite of Audyssey Technologies for the Ideal Listening Environment
The TX-NR579 comes equipped with three soundenhancing Audyssey technologies.
(1) Audyssey 2EQ®tailors multi-channel audio for your home theatre speaker set-up by measuring three room positions and applying a resolution filter to the satellite speakers to correct for room acoustics.
(2) Audyssey Dynamic EQ®maintains a consistent bass response, tonal balance, and surround-sound effect at different volume levels, so you can enjoy the natural dynamics of your content regardless of the volume.
(3) Audyssey Dynamic Volume®automatically compensates for volume fluctuations in different audio content—for example, during commercial breaks—while optimizing the dynamic range.
