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...

Onkyo TX-NR636


Large-scale sound, Will go loud, Precise with sound placement, Well specified

Bass could be punchier and tighter, Lacks solidity, Dynamically soft

An impressively specified receiver, but its sound performance leaves us wanting

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...
