Details from Onkyo

    Devotees of high–resolution, meanwhile, can stream their network–attached 5.6 MHz DSD or 192/24 hi–res albums using the remote app, while listeners seeking an instant fix can enjoy music from smartphone via built–in Wi–Fi® and Bluetooth.The TX–NR838 is also packed full of cutting–edge features for movies and gaming, with 4K/60 Hz–ready HDMI®2.0 terminals, HDCP 2.2 compatibility for future Ultra HD premium content, and the sheer power you need for a supreme surround–sound experience.

    Class–Leading Hi–fi Amplification for a Moving Listening Experience
    Drivers don't judge sports cars on top speed alone. Acceleration, cornering, and braking are equally important. It's the same with A/V receivers—wattage is an indication of loudness, not sound quality. The real test is current.

    High instantaneous current realizes ultimate control of the speaker drivers for accurate and musical audio reproduction, from the most delicate piano passages to the thunderous roar of an orchestra in full flight.

    High current is the cornerstone of our amplification philosophy, and no other brand can match Onkyo for dynamic driving power. We don't just translate signals into sound. We create sound you can feel.

    Engineered for Pure Exhilaration
    Best–in–class high–current capability is achieved with Wide Range Amplifier Technology (WRAT). The design is built around a custom high–output transformer, customized 15,000 µF capacitors, and low–impedance copper bus–plates.

    Three–Stage Inverted Darlington Circuitry amplification features a discrete low–impedance output stage with high–current transistors for instantaneous power and extremely low distortion.

    Unlike some A/V receivers, the audio and video processors, DAC section, networking, pre–amp, amplifiers, and power supply are all separated to minimize electrical interference on audio signals.

    The culmination of over 60 years' audio engineering experience, WRAT preserves the life and character of the master recording while guaranteeing an emotionally moving experience whether you're listening to compressed digital music, a treasured LP, or a hi–res movie soundtrack.

    THX® Select2™ Plus Delivers Reference–Level Sound in Your Home
    THX certification guarantees the same high–volume, low–distortion sound of a commercial multiplex theater in your own listening space, with high–resolution studio–master soundtracks reproduced precisely as the director intended.

    The TX–NR838 Network A/V Receiver has passed more than 2,000 laboratory bench tests across 75 categories and covering 14,000 individual data points to ensure that every aspect of audio performance meets rigorous THX standards for theater–reference sound.

    THX Select2 Plus is recommended for medium–sized rooms where the screen–to–seat viewing distance is about 3—4 m (10—12 ft.).

    Deeper, Wider, Clearer Sound for Vinyl and SACD
    At the touch of a button on the front panel, Pure Direct Analog Path mode brings higher fidelity to vinyl, SACD, or CD playback via your home theater. With this mode engaged, every digital circuit is physically shut down to prevent electrical interference on analog audio signals. Signals pass directly from the phono or analog audio inputs to the amplifiers and arrive at your front loudspeakers in pure analog form.

    The improvement in audio quality is quite dramatic. With subtle interference erased, you can hear more detail deeper down in the mix, while the rich tonal character of vinyl is displayed in all its analog glory. This mode also lets your home theater receiver double as a dedicated analog stereo amplifier for quality source components, if space or budget precludes a dedicated hi–fi stereo system.

    HDMI 2.0 for 4K Video at 60 fps and HDCP 2.2 Compatibility
    Five of the receiver's seven HDMI inputs are based on the latest HDMI 2.0 specification to support 4K video at 50/60 frames per second and 21:9 aspect ratio for theater–reference movie display. Now you can add thunderous 7.2–channel surround–sound to blockbuster 4K 50/60 Hz games and movies for a breathtakingly realistic entertainment experience. These next–generation HDMI 2.0 inputs ensure maximum display quality from a wide range of high–definition media sources, including future Ultra HD 50/60Hz broadcasting and internet streaming.

    The TX–NR838 also supports the latest HDCP 2.2 DRM copy protection standard via HDMI Input 3 and the main output.. Hollywood studios, satellite broadcasters, and internet video streaming services will adopt HDCP 2.2 for future 4K and Premium Studio Content releases. It's essential your A/V receiver have HDCP 2.2 compatibility to view Ultra HD content via internet streaming services and future TV broadcasts. Onkyo is one of the very few A/V receiver brands to currently support this feature.

    The TX–NR838 also includes industry–leading QdeoTM 4K video upscaling technology, which smoothly upscales low–resolution video from legacy game consoles, DVDs, and broadcast television to liquid–smooth 1080p (for a Full HD display) or 4K on a compatible Ultra HD display. Even if you're not planning on immediately upgrading to a 4K display, it's still good to know your receiver is ready. In fact, the TX–NR838 is the most future–ready A/V receiver on the market today.

    Share Your HD Video Sources in Two Zones
    The HDMI Sub Out can be used to connect your A/V receiver to a second display in another room. Now you can route 1080p content from the media players in your home theater room via the receiver and play it back in Zone 2. Enjoy your favorite Blu–ray Discs, cable TV shows, and other HD content in the kitchen, den, or bedroom with easy playback control via smartphone or tablet.

    Dual 32–bit DSP Engines
    Most conventional A/V receivers use just one Digital Signal Processor (DSP) to decode digital audio. The Onkyo TX–NR838 doubles the power with two 32–bit processing engines handling multichannel studio–master soundtracks along with a large variety of hi–res audio files, including 5.6 MHz DSD (the same format used for Super Audio CD). The dual DSP engines are super–efficient at decoding these complex files so you can enjoy effortlessly smooth high–resolution playback.

    Wi–Fi and Bluetooth Inside
    The TX–NR838 has Wi–Fi and Bluetooth technology built in. For network audio, use the remote app to stream music stored on your smartphone and to locate and stream hi–res audio from any network–attached DLNA–certified device (such as a PC or NAS). There are no hidden adapter costs, no need for close proximity to an Ethernet wall socket, and no long runs of unsightly cable just to enjoy a stable network connection.

    The receiver also has Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR on board. Pair up and stream whatever audio is playing on your compatible device, from MP3s to albums on YouTube. Audio streamed via Bluetooth is enhanced with Onkyo's Advanced Music Optimizer, a DSP mode that restores compressed files to close to their original fidelity for beautifully full and natural sound.
