Onkyo TX-NR686 7.2-Channel Network A/V Receiver‎ 

Mind-blowing entertainment every day of the week

With high-current Dynamic Audio Amplification driving your surround system to THX Certified Select™ cinema reference levels, you can transport your audience to the heart of the movie. DTS:X® and Dolby Atmos® soundtracks complement the latest in 4K HDR video via HDMI® pass-through supporting 4K/60p, Dolby Vision™, HDR10, HLG, and the BT.2020 color standard. Now with cross-compatible 3D audio upmixing solutions from Dolby Surround and DTS Neural:X®, you can enjoy regular multichannel movies with spatially immersive sound. Cast music from mobiles to the receiver and other compatible systems in your home over Chromecast built-in, DTS Play-Fi®, or FlareConnect™ wireless multi-room platforms. AirPlay and Bluetooth® technology are also on board. Enjoy built-in streaming services as well Hi-Res Audio via network and USB, all with the dynamic and emotional sound only an Onkyo can deliver.

 

THX® Certified Select™ reference sound 

THX Certified Select guarantees the high-volume sound experienced at a commercial cinema in your home. To gain certification, amplifiers must pass severe THX bench-tests covering every aspect of audio performance. THX Certified Select components suit rooms where screen-to-seat viewing distance is about 3 meters and room volume around 57 cubic meters.

 

Dolby Atmos® and DTS:X® with upmixing solutions 

Object-based audio lets sounds play independently through any speaker, moving all around your audience so they feel 5.2.2-ch Dolby Atmos or DTS:X soundtracks with natural conviction. DTS Neural:X® and Dolby Surround upmixing solutions find spatial cues in legacy multichannel soundtracks and upmix them for 3D audio playback through your object-audio-ready speaker system. Both solutions offer cross-compatible support for common movie soundtracks, such as Dolby® Digital 5.1, Dolby® TrueHD, and DTS-HD Master Audio™, so you can enjoy more immersive 3D sound from your movie library as well as with supported video streaming services.

 

Wi-Fi, AirPlay, Spotify®, and Bluetooth®

Dual-band 5 GHz/2.4 GHz Wi-Fi assures stable connectivity so you can enjoy smooth streaming over AirPlay, the Spotify app, and the local network. Bluetooth technology also provides simple wireless streaming from music applications.

 

Onkyo Controller app for easy multi-room management 

Onkyo Controller app collects streaming services and network-attached audio into one intuitive interface. Control playback, navigate internet services, and distribute audio all over the home with ease.

 

Chromecast built-in, now with the Google Assistant 

Stream any music from your smartphone, laptop, or PC to the TX-NR686 with ease. Control playback with Chromecast-enabled apps you know and love from your iPhone, iPad, Android™ phone or tablet, Mac® or Windows® laptop, or Chromebook™. If you have a speaker device featuring the Google Assistant, such as the Onkyo Smart Speaker G3, you can cue, play, and control music playback on your TX-NR686 by voice. 

 

Ready for DTS Play-Fi® multi-room audio 

DTS Play-Fi allows you to enjoy high-quality music from connected online services, networked media servers, and your device library over Wi-Fi® to any number of compatible products using the Onkyo Music Control App for iPad, iPhone, and Android smartphones/tablets. DTS Play-Fi can synchronize the music in every room. Each member of your family can use their own device to listen to their music in a room or group of rooms. DTS Play-Fi lets you structure a comprehensive multi-room ecosystem that satisfies virtually any need. For more information, visit www.play-fi.com.

 

More streaming services and internet radio

Amazon Music, TIDAL, Deezer, and TuneIn are baked into the GUI, making it easy to select from music and radio programs with Onkyo Controller or Onkyo Music Control App.

 

FlareConnect™ wireless multi-room audio

FlareConnect shares audio from network and external audio input sources between compatible components. Enjoy effortless multi-room playback of LP records, CDs, network music services, and more with supported components and speaker systems. Music selection, speaker grouping, and playback management across the home are built into the Onkyo Controller app.

 

Supports 4K HDR, BT.2020, 4K/60 Hz, and HDCP 2.2 

Six rear HDMI® inputs support pass-through of 4K HDR in HDR10, HLG, and Dolby Vision™ formats. They handle the BT.2020 4K Video Standard, 4K/60 Hz playback, and HDCP 2.2 for premium content. Front HDMI connects video cameras or consoles, while rear Sub Out is ideal for connecting a projector. 

 

Give life to sound with Dynamic Audio Amplification 

High-current power is proven by an ability to drive four-ohm speaker loads, which test the toughest multichannel amplifier. Heaps of muscle means superior control for fast dynamics and high energy. Non-phase-shift amps present a detailed and cohesive audio image, while VLSC™ eliminates high-frequency distortion for ultimate clarity of sound.

 

Graphical User Interface with Easy Setup

With speakers and media players connected, plug in the AccuEQ mic and let the receiver GUI guide you through setup, from speaker calibration (including AccuReflex phase correction for Dolby Atmos-enabled speakers) through to network connection. The refined interface makes control simple and enjoyable. 

 

Powered Zone 2 and Zone 2 line-out

Powered Zone 2 speaker outputs let you send amplified audio sources, including network, S/PDIF, and analog, to a pair of speakers in another room. Line outputs can connect home cinema sources to a separate hi-fi system. Manage playback distribution with Onkyo Controller.

 
 

 

KEF T105 Speaker System

 

Slim speakers, serious sound 


KEF’s revolutionary T Series is in a different league from any low profile speaker you’ve ever heard.

As one of the world’s thinnest high performance home theatre systems, the new T Series combines several landmark innovations: a radical new ultra-low profile bass and midrange driver, and a large, fully vented new tweeter. By incorporating both in cabinets only 35mm (just over 1.25in.) deep, the T Series brings you all the pleasures of true audiophile quality sound in a speaker that perfectly complements the aesthetics of the latest flat screen TVs. 

 

Ultra-slim bass driver

Clean, forceful response that brings the action vividly to life.
Instead of a cone, the radical new twin-layer bass and midrange unit has a flat diaphragm whose rigidity throughout the frequency range is maintained by very fine stiffening ribs, with the driver as a whole acting as a stressed member to help eliminate any unwanted resonance from the slim cabinet. The resulting response is as clean, accurate and distortion-free as a quality conventional speaker, with none of the bulk.

In addition to minimising the height of the magnets, we placed the entire suspension outside the magnet system so that it adds nothing to its height. Whether you opt for the standard satellite and centre speakers or the larger models with additional bass/midrange drivers, the result is an exceptionally shallow unit that allows the enclosure to have the same installed depth as current flat screen TVs without compromising acoustic integrity in the slightest. Lush yet well controlled, it’s the kind of performance that brings soundtrack effects to life with a real sense of drama


Large new vented tweeter


A warm, natural sound that’s so real you feel you’re there.
The generous size of the sophisticated new 25mm (1in.) vented tweeter specially developed for the T Series allows exceptionally accurate reproduction, especially of the human voice. And silken, effortlessly pure high notes. The clarity is outstanding, even played loud. 

KEF’s unique ‘tangerine’ waveguide helps to disperse the sound image evenly throughout the room. The combined effect is remarkable: you find yourself immersed in a dense three-dimensional sound picture that completely engages you with what’s happening on screen.

 

Total excellence

The perfect balance: engineering integrity with design flair.

Everything about the new T Series has been designed from first principles to achieve a sleek, unobtrusive look that matches the styling of modern TVs while still maintaining the high standard of audio fidelity KEF is famous for. 

The precision etched logo and chamfered black anodised aluminium side trims hint at the meticulous attention to detail and superb build quality of what’s inside. Ease of use is built in from the start, with KEF’s ingenious Selecta-mount™ system concealed in the optional stand automatically adjusting each speaker’s sound balance according to whether it’s mounted on your wall, desktop or floo
