Hi-Res Audio with an Analog Soul

The NS-6170 combines the accessibility and usability of digital audio with the soul of analog, transforming how you experience music on your Hi-Fi system.

A wideband DIDRC Filter enhances flagship dual-differential DACs at the heart of a separately powered twin-monaural L/R channel circuit layout.

These technologies help articulate the distinctive and nuanced instrumental resonances contained in Hi-Res Audio signals, but with a richness and vitality seldom associated with digital listening.

Connect your HDD music library via USB and flick through terabytes of tunes like fingers through a record-store rack using the Onkyo Controller app, or cast whatever’s playing on your mobile using Chromecast built-in, AirPlay®, or Wi-Fi®. Every day is a new adventure in sound, and all through the same amp and speakers that make your LPs sing.

 

Key Features

-Engineered for Hi-Res Audio
-Connect and Play HDD Audio via USB
-Chromecast built-in for Mobiles and PCs
-Stream Audio with AirPlay®
-Dual-Differential DAC Configuration

 

Engineered for Hi-Res Audio

Hi-Res Audio contains more information and therefore more of the recording’s atmosphere, allowing you to hear and feel things you miss with other formats. The NS-6170 is built from the ground up to preserve the fidelity of DSD 11.2 MHz and 192/24 Hi-Res Audio formats so you get a complete sonic picture.

 

Wideband DIDRC Filter

DIDRC (Dynamic Intermodulation Distortion Reduction Circuitry) Filter replaces standard DAC output filters. Hi-Res Audio covers a much wider frequency band than CDs, and conventional filters can’t erase noise that falls outside that spectrum. This interference alters the harmonic character of audible sound. Wideband DIDRC Filter erases ultra-highfrequency distortion for unparalleled fidelity.

 

Connect and Play HDD Audio via USB

Connect mass-storage-class HDDs via front or rear USB inputs and put your entire digital music collection at your fingertips. Use the new Onkyo Controller app to browse, select, and play albums from HDD quickly and easily. Note: HDD must be formatted to FAT32.

 

Chromecast built-in for Mobiles and PCs

Chromecast built-in lets you cast audio from your mobile or laptop to the NS-6170. Control playback via familiar apps for iPhone, iPad, and Android™ devices as well as Mac, Windows®, and Chromebook computers.

 

Stream Audio with AirPlay®

Send app-based audio from Apple laptops, PCs, and iOS mobile devices to the Network Audio Player over AirPlay in moments.

 

Selectable Dual-band Wi-Fi®

Connected homes mean more network traffic. Dual-band 5 GHz/2.4 GHz Wi-Fi® lets you select an uncongested channel for smooth and stable wireless streaming.

 

Any Music You Want, When You Want It

TIDAL, Deezer, and TuneIn streaming and internet radio services are conveniently accessible using the Onkyo Controller app or remote controller. This Network Audio Player also supports direct streaming from the Spotify Connect application.

 

Separate Power Supply Paths for Stereo Precision

The NS-6170 features a twin monaural layout for L/R channels with separate power supply paths, upgraded transformer, and extra-large audio capacitors for left and right DACs. This dual design enhances power stability and precision for extremely accurate stereo playback, adding authenticity and emotion to the musical experience.

 

Dual-Differential DAC Configuration

Flagship AK4490 768 kHz/32-bit DACs for L/R channels decode the positive and negative halves of the signal waveform separately. As well as improving voltage stability and dropping the noise floor, dual-differential DAC configuration increases bandwidth and pulls every detail from Hi-Res Audio.

 

Intuitive Control with Onkyo Controller app

Control playback from anywhere within Wi-Fi® range, select and stream music from onboard services, and explore music on connected HDDs with a new, user-focused remote control application for iOS*1 and Android™*2.
*1 Requires iOS 8.4 or later. *2 Requires Android 4.0.3 or later.
