Onkyo TX-NR636


Let me pose to you a potentially leading question: is there any piece of home-theater equipment less sexy than a receiver? Useful, oh yes -- and it pays to get a good one -- but most of them are very, very unsexy. The Onkyo TX-NR636 isn't quite an...

The Onkyo TX-NR636 has a laundry list of features including Dolby Atmos support and High-Resolution Audio streaming; HDMI 2.0 and HDCP 2.2 means the receiver is potentially more future-proof than its competitors; very good sound quality; a phono input...

On-screen display is minimal and difficult to read; imposing external design.

The Onkyo TX-NR636 offers a compelling mix of features and performance with "future-proofing" that is unparalleled for the money.

Onkyo TX-NR636 7.2-Channel Network A/V Receiver


Onkyo's $700 TX-NR636 is a forward-looking AV receiver that's loaded with features, including HDMI 2.0 and HDCP 2.2. How does it perform? Dennis Burger finds out.

So, thumbs up or thumbs down on the TX-NR636 7.2-channel network AV receiver? I say thumbs up. Way up. If the company had only included subwoofer correction in its new, proprietary AccuEQ system, I would climb a stepstool to get my thumbs a little...

Video Card went out around 7-8 months of use.


Sound is terrific, calibrator works great looks beautiful very strong the on-screen video guide is great the wifi works good if you're listening to Pandora it'll stop playing and lagging after a few hours of use without touching anything maybe sooner,...

After seven to eight months of ownership the video card went out. I have to pay around $50 for shipping to send my stereo away, the retail store video only can't offer me any help other than biting the bullet. Telling they'll give me a discounted price...
