Audio Return Channel and 3D Video via HDMI®
Six HDMI inputs on the TX-NR414 allow seamless integration of high-definition devices such as Blu-ray players, cable/satellite tuners, and gaming consoles. HDMI implementation on this receiver also supports an Audio Return Channel, allowing TV audio to be sent upstream to the A/V receiver. That means you can enjoy television programs in magnificent Onkyo sound. HDMI also supports 3D video and other popular high-resolution formats.


InstaPrevue™ Technology Makes Switching
Sources Easy

The TX-NR414 incorporates InstaPrevue visual port management technology, making input source selection much easier. InstaPrevue technology provides a live video thumbnail of the available content on your devices connected via HDMI. You no longer have to remember that your gaming console is connected to Port 3, or your BD player to Port 1, for example—you can see what’s playing and choose accordingly.

Onkyo Remote Apps for iPod touch/iPhone and
Android

The Onkyo Remote App 2 for iPod touch/iPhone*1 and Onkyo Remote for Android*2 both provide an intuitive way to operate Onkyo network A/V receivers. Control input sources, adjust settings, and play audio stored in a smartphone wirelessly (Android only) using the application’s interactive graphical display. The two Remote Apps are available separately as free downloads.
*1 Compatible with iPod touch (3rd generation or later) and iPhone 3GS or later. All models require iOS 4.2 or later. *2 Requires Android OS 2.1 or later.


Save 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.
*4 Not all servers 0r players support all formats.

WRAT (Wide Range Amplifier Technology)
Delivers Higher Fidelity

WRAT is a suite of proprietary technologies Onkyo developed to improve signal-to-noise ratios, and enhance the fidelity of amplified audio. The technologies work to reduce noise across the frequency range, guaranteeing a clear, wellbalanced performance. It does this by employing a low negative-feedback amplifier design; using “closed” groundloop circuitry to cancel noise from individual circuits; and by ensuring high instantaneous-current capability to cancel reflex energy and impedance fluctuations from the speakers.

Overlaid On-Screen Display with Quick
Set-Up Menu

The receiver’s HDMI-linked On-Screen Display (OSD) makes initial set-up and in-program calibration very easy. The ‘Q’ button on your remote overlays a transparent ‘Quick Setup’ menu on the program you’re watching. This handy shortcut includes the most frequently used settings, and helps you optimize your home cinema’s performance with the minimum of disruption. The ‘Home’ button accesses standard set-up menus for more detailed adjustment.


Enjoy Lossless High-Definition Movie Soundtracks
The TX-NR414 can decode Dolby® TrueHD and DTSHD Master Audio™—two “lossless” Blu-ray formats that deliver a soundtrack identical to the studio master. The TX-NR414 also handles Dolby® Digital Plus and DTS-HD High Resolution Audio™. Dolby Digital Plus is designed to accompany HD video delivered via disc media, television broadcasts, and online content. DTS-HD High Resolution Audio, meanwhile, offers a higher bit and sampling rate than the core DTS technology.

Direct Digital iPod/iPhone Connection for Cleaner
Sound

The TX-NR414’s front-panel USB port lets you play MP3 and AAC stored on an iPod/iPhone, and MP3, WMA, AAC, and FLAC audio files stored on a flash-memory device using the system’s own remote for track selection and playback. Your music will also sound much cleaner and clearer, as the audio signal is transported in digital form (rather than analog) via the direct digital connection.


Top-Quality DACs Deliver Clearer Sound
Digital-to-Analog converters are of particular importance to audio fans seeking excellent sound reproduction, and the TX-NR414 features reliable, high-performance 192 kHz/ 24-bit chips from Burr-Brown. As well as optimising analog performance, these DACs are highly resistant to “clock jitter”, a subtle form of digital distortion.


Playback of Different Audio Sources in Two Zones
Zone 2 line-outs on the TX-NR414 allow you to enjoy surround-sound entertainment in the main room, while playing back a different stereo source in a second zone equipped with an amplifier and a pair of speakers.
