With the power to fill large rooms with THX®-certified sound, this cutting-edge receiver is ready to integrate and distribute entertainment throughout your home.

You can distribute any of these various stereo sources to other rooms for house-wide entertainment. With a total of 10 HDMI® connections, this receiver converges HD content from all your components—even your smart phone media via a frontside MHL/HDMI—and provides easy input selection with InstaPrevue™ technology. HDMI also enables intuitive GUI with overlaid Quick Set-Up menu. Visually managing settings and playback— even across multiple zones—is easy with the Onkyo Remote App for iPhone and Android phones. Video upscaling to 4K, Audyssey DSX® seven-channel sound expansion, and Audyssey 2EQ® room correction are all included. Sound quality is quite simply the best in class, with powerful WRAT amplifier, three-stage inverted Darlington circuitry, and discrete output stage components delivering an otherworldly entertainment experience.

Wireless Cloud Streaming, Internet Radio, and
PC-Based Music

Connecting to your home network using a standard LAN cable, the TX-NR717 makes streaming audio and internet radio easy. You can also play formats including MP3, AAC, Apple Lossless, FLAC, and WMA Lossless stored on your PC through your Onkyo home cinema system. The receiver offers easy access to internet radio channels from Last.fm and vTuner, plus cloud-based music streaming from AUPEO!, Simfy, and MP3tunes*. Wireless networking is enabled with an optional UWF-1 Wireless LAN Adapter.

Mobile High-Definition Link for Smart Phone Movies and Photos on HDTV
The TX-NR717’s front-panel HDMI port is designed for the connection of compatible smart phones and other portable electronic devices using the new MHL standard. 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.

InstaPrevue™ Technology Makes Switching Sources Easy
The TX-NR717 incorporates InstaPrevue visual port management technology, making input source selection 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 Blu-ray player to Port 1, for example—you can see what’s playing and choose accordingly.

THX® Select2 Plus™ Certified
THX Select2 Plus certification is specified for rooms where the screen-to-seat viewing distance is three to four meters and the room volume is around 56 cubic meters. To achieve THX Select2 Plus certification, the TX-NR717 had to meet the world’s most demanding standards for home cinema audio quality and performance, and play at reference volume levels with minimal distortion.

4K Video Upscaling and Processing via Qdeo™ Technology
The TX-NR717 offers full 4K (4096 x 2160) upscaling of standard video sources such as 480i/p, 720p, and 1080i/p. Interlaced-to-progressive conversion and scaling are performed by Qdeo video processing technology from Marvell. Qdeo uses algorithms 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.

Onkyo Remote Apps for iPod touch/iPhone and Android Phone
The Onkyo Remote App 2 for iPod touch/iPhone*1 and Onkyo Remote for Android phone*2 both provide an intuitive way to operate Onkyo network A/V receivers. Control input sources, adjust settings, and play audio stored in a smart phone wirelessly (Android phone only) using the application’s interactive graphical display. The two Remote Apps are available separately as free downloads.

Entertain Your Friends and Family
The TX-NR717 can assign its Front High or Front Wide channel outputs to power speakers in two other rooms of your home. 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. Integrated house-wide entertainment is now a reality.

Innovative Design Delivers Spectacular Sound
The TX-NR717 incorporates three-stage inverted Darlington circuitry—an enhancement to Onkyo’s proven WRAT (Wide Range Amplifier Technology)—and discrete output stage components. The design ensures low negative feedback for reduced distortion and improved handling of speaker impedance fluctuations. Quality circuitry dovetails with a heavy-duty power supply for instantaneous response to signal gains. Furthermore, PLL (Phase Locked Loop) jitter-cleaning technology enhances digital processing by removing clock noise. The result is clear, effortless sound under heavy loads.

Direct Digital iPod/iPhone Connection for Cleaner Sound
The receiver’s front-panel USB port lets you play MP3, AAC, and Apple Lossless 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.

Audyssey DSX® and Dolby® Pro Logic® IIz for Three-Dimensional Surround Sound
The TX-NR717 incorporates surround sound technologies from Audyssey and Dolby to offer you a choice of home cinema setups. Audyssey DSX can expand 5.1 sources to incorporate Wide or Height channels, while the Dolby system adds Height channels. Dolby Pro Logic IIz can also expand stereo sources such as music or TV programs. A seven-channel setup provides a more realistic experience, with the High or Wide channels carrying subtle directional and ambient effects.
