Product Description

Product Description

Top-End Features at a Realistic Price

Home networking for PC- and cloud-based audio. Six HDMI® inputs. WRAT noise-reduction suite. Powerful and immersive 5.1 surround. High-Definition audio decoding and 3D video support. If all this sounds like an AVR that’s beyond your budget, get ready to be pleasantly surprised. Onkyo’s TX-NR414 Network A/V Receiver boasts all this and more. For a start, the receiver incorporates InstaPrevue™ technology, a new picture-in-picture HDMI input source preview system that greatly simplifies the operation of your home cinema. Or try the HDMI-linked overlaid on-screen display, making mid-program setting adjustments quick and easy. There’s also a USB port for direct-digital iPod/iPhone connection, Zone 2 line-outs for playback of a different stereo source in another room, digital music file enhancement, top-shelf build quality, and the purity of sound for which our brand is famous. And the price tag? Let’s just say HD playback isn’t the only realistic thing about this potent AVR.

Cloud-Based Audio Streaming and Internet Radio Over the Home Network

Connecting to the internet and your home PC via a local network, the TX-NR414 makes streaming audio and internet radio easy. You can also play MP3, WMA, WMA Lossless, FLAC, WAV, Ogg Vorbis, AAC, and LPCM audio files stored on your PC through your Onkyo system with stunning power and fidelity. The receiver offers access to internet radio channels from Last.fm and vTuner, plus cloud-based music streaming from Spotify, AUPEO!, and MP3tunes*. Internet connectivity has the added benefit of making firmware updates simpler than ever.

*Availability of services depends on region. Some services may require a firmware update.

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.

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, well-balanced performance. It does this by employing a low negative-feedback amplifier design; using “closed” ground-loop 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.

I have had this receiver for a short while so this review started with first impressions and I am adding to it. My initial reaction was entirely positive and remains so.

First, the background stuff ...
The receiver is a little taller than the unit it has replaced but other than that has virtually identical dimensions. It fits easily onto the TV stand. Its styling is unobtrusive.

The manual is good: it is supplied on CD, but I downloaded it from the Onkyo website before purchase. I found this a udeful way of checking that all the features required are there without having to rely on the sales blurb or the technical summaries. The manual is in good English, not one of the poor translation efforts that are all too common. There are quick-start guides in the box.

The connections on the back are clearly labelled and it was easy to wire the unit correctly: the use of HDMI cables helps and certainly cuts the spaghetti behind the unit. It has six such connections, which makes it one of the best specified on the market. A nice touch is the sheet of sticky labels supplied to wrap round the many cables that feed into the unit.

Now for the performance ...
The sound the Onkyo produces is crystal clear. I was so pleased: the fidelity of my system is back to what I grew used to with previous equipment and is a vast improvement over the receiver that it has replaced, which in its day was no slouch either. It delivers with an effortless style and is well balanced over the entire frequency range: the bass is not booming and the treble is sharp and clear. The channel separation is good right/left and front/rear meaning that a 5.1 soundtrack is delivered with clarity.

I would have to agree with the previous reviewers on pretty much everything. This is an excellent unit and as long as you can live without the bells, whistles and expense of more capable receivers and are happy with 5.1 then I scratch my head in wondering how you could better it at this price point. Even for those that purchased a 5.1 amp a very few years ago, they would be delighted with the goods that the Onkyo produces. Ours is coupled to the equally surprising Tannoy TFX 5.1 micro speaker package and the result is a revelation. Stuff this cheap and this good is hard to fault, though I will. It has one problem that it shares with many other manufacturers and that concerns DLNA, or streaming of a local library. If you want to skip my ramblings, Google up "Gapless Playback" and all will be revealed, but for those brave enough to stay here, this problem means that your album tracks will each play, but with a short gap between those tracks. This especially affects lovers of classical music and fans of the singing frocks, but also can spoil modern albums that are meant to be listened to as one piece blends into the next. It is a minor gripe, but a real one. Not everybody listens to Spotify. Even the Squeezebox that the Onkyo was meant to supplant, can handle gapless playback and if you have taken the trouble to rip your music collection at a higher quality than the offal that usually dribbles out of a smartphone, then this does become a fly in the ointment.

A related point is that navigation of larger DLNA libraries via the easily read display is still a pain in the butt. Onkyo do a free Android app for the control of their receivers, but for music at least, there is far better out there in the shape of Bubble UPNP which might dent your wallet to the tune of three quid.

As part of a project to upgrade my home cinema system, I wanted to replace an old home entertainment centre (with bespoke sub-woofer/speaker set up) with something more generic and flexible. The Onkyo fitted the bill perfectly. With six HDMI inputs, and just about every component-based wiring option covered, it is so easy to add devices. I kept the old speakers, but replaced the old proprietary subwoofer with a seperate active one, and it works great. The Onkyo upgrades both picture and sound to the highest spec it can, which is a great improvement on what I had before. The Onkyo comes network ready, so access to the internet for firmware upgrades and internet entertainment is a doddle. The remote control can be programmed to control just about any third-party device you care to think of by means of five digit codes listed in the documentation. Still working through the very comprehensive user manual, which could be summarised into one page which says 'this thing does it all !'.

At the time of writing and for 150 quid in store this has to be the best receiver on the market in this price bracket with this amount of features.
What did it replace? A 5 year old, dearly loved (but HDMI-less) Yamaha RX v357. In fact, I nearly plumped for the equivalent current Yamaha model (the RX v373) but I needed 5 HDMI connections. (The Onkyo has 6, the Yamaha only has 4).
Streaming? Internet radio was another tick in the box, and the wired ethernet connection via powerline adapters works perfectly.
Firmware? The supplied USB stick with the latest (Aug 2013) firmware update was unexpected fairly straight forward.
Set-up? It took a few tweaks in the set-up options to ensure HD signals were received from the blu-ray and sky plus box (ensure you've set to bitstream).. the instruction manual isn't the clearest I've ever read, but spend a little while getting it right and the end result is outstanding.
Verdict. 3d Blu-ray's look and sound glorious in True HD (the difference compared to standard Dolby Digital is noticable - 5.1 surround immerses you completley. I increased the level of the centre speaker and lowered the level of the rear surrounds to find the best balance. And a real bonus is being able to programme the remote to control the Sky+ box, the Sony blu-ray player, and the LG telly.
