A harmonious mix of tech and tradition, the TX-NR696 adapts to entertainment life and finds the emotion in every sound source, from 3D film-scores to vinyl records. SMART AV Receiver™ gathers Chromecast built-in, Works with Sonos, AirPlay 2, and DTS Play-Fi® with streaming services for smooth multi-room audio evolved by support for the new high-speed 802.11ac (2x2 MIMO) Wi-Fi® specification. Dolby Atmos® and DTS:X® pull audiences deep into movies and games, THX Certified Select assuring a theater-reference experience. If a 5.2.2-ch setup isn’t possible, Dolby Atmos Height Virtualizer and DTS Virtual:X™ can create a 3D sound-field from horizontal speaker layouts. Separate Zone 2 outputs with switching also enable 7-ch layouts in Main plus Zone 2 speakers. With revitalized DAA system, 4K/60p/HDR HDMI® terminals, and many extras, this product excels in every aspect.
SMART AV Receiver is the heart of your home entertainment
system. Access streaming content from Amazon Music,
Pandora®, Spotify®, TIDAL, Deezer, and TuneIn and share
sound as part of a multi-room system
via Works with Sonos, Chromecast
built-in*, AirPlay 2, DTS Play-Fi®, and
* The unit may automatically download and apply an Over-the-Air software update during setup.
The TX-NR696 can join your existing Sonos Home Sound
System, or be the start of a new one, just by pairing it with
a Sonos Connect*. The AVR ties into the Sonos ecosystem,
waking, changing inputs, and playing at the desired volume on
command from the Sonos app*.
*Sonos Connect sold separately. Sonos app is available free for iPad, iPhone, and Android™ at the App Store and Google Play. Please check device and OS compatibility before installation.
Stream any music from your smartphone, laptop, or PC to the receiver 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 smart speaker featuring the Google Assistant, you can cue, play, and control music playback by voice.
*The unit may automatically download and apply an Over-the-Air software update during setup.
THX Certified Select guarantees the same reference volume and sound quality of at a commercial theater in rooms where the viewing position is about 10-12 ft. from the screen. To deliver THX reference movie sound, receivers must pass 2,000 bench-tests in 75 categories covering 14,000 data points.
Dolby Atmos® and DTS:X®formats allow engineers to map sound anywhere in 3D space, effects moving from speaker to speaker all around the room and wrapping your audience in the latest films and games. You can also enjoy your 3D speaker layout with classic titles. Dolby Surround® and DTS® Neural:X find overhead cues in legacy soundtracks and upmix for awesome spatial realism.
When playing any Dolby® format, engaging Dolby Atmos
Height Virtualizer* enables a more immersive listening
experience, creating a virtual surround and height effect from
traditional speaker layouts without employing additional
surround or height speakers.
*Available via firmware update.
DTS Virtual:X* is a surround virtualization technology that creates an immersive 3D sound-field from horizontal speaker layouts without requiring height-speaker connection. It uses DSP algorithms to create a sense of 3D spatiality and is effective in rooms of any size and shape. DTS Virtual:X works with DTS:X, DTS® formats, and non-encoded stereo soundtracks.
*Available via firmware update.
Enjoy support for HDR (High Dynamic Range) video including HDR10, HLG, Dolby Vision®, and BT.2020. The 4:4:4 color space is also supported. Seven HDMI inputs, ARC-ready MAIN OUT, and SUB OUT pass 4K/60p and HDR video from player to compatible TV and projector and all terminals are HDCP 2.3 compliant.
High-quality AKM 384 kHz/32-bit D/A conversion is enhanced by VLSC™ filtering (Front L/R channels), an original technology that erases digital noise arising from D/A conversion. Enjoy the purity of Hi-Res Audio sources, CD, and streaming music.
Refined over 70 years to deliver an emotional listening experience, DAA features a custom High-Current Low-Noise Power Transformer, customized capacitors, and discrete amp output stage. Unique circuit topology prevents phase-shift for accurate sound, while high current improves speaker control for thrilling dynamics. Driving 4-ohm loads through all channels, DAA has power to move you.
While cosmetically familiar, the TX-NR696 has significant upgrades inside that control noise, boost driving power, and improve S/N performance. A new HDMI® board features larger, stronger, better-finished grounds and shortened signal-paths for clean and accurate A/V signals. New SoC processor has its own board remote from audio signal-paths to reduce noise. Key aspects of the power-supply line have been strengthened and upgraded in pursuit of driving power, which you can hear in the blistering attack speed and force of the bass, and in the clearer separation and localization of instruments across a large and spacious soundstage.
AccuEQ creates a harmonious sound-field in your room. It detects speaker presence, size, impedance, and distance from a measurement position, and sets sound-pressure levels. It then selects the subwoofer crossover and EQ's all speakers, including the sub. AccuReflex optimizes 3D audio reproduction through Dolby Atmos-enabled speakers. It resolves phase-shift arising from path differences between directional and non-directional sounds. Enjoy a cohesive 3D sound-field with vertical movement and overhead dimensionality.
Zone 2 outputs enable 7-ch surround in Main plus stereo speakers in Zone 2. Distribute different analog, NET, Bluetooth®, SPDIF, and HDMI audio sources in either or both zones at the same time (there's a Zone 2 DAC) just by switching to a 5.1-ch + Zone 2 layout. Output from Zone 2 and Zone 2 line-out is enabled.
*HDMI and SPDIF supports PCM audio only. HDMI audio available on inputs 1-3.
A quad-core SoC (System on a Chip) has power to perform multiple processing tasks at once. It evolves network functions and supports the latest high-speed 802.11ac (2x2 MIMO) specification while compatible with 802.11b/g/n dual-band routers.
*Note: Some countries or regions have regulations that affect wireless signal strength and the use of Wi-Fi channels.
This technology solves inaudible dialog in TV programs and movies. DSP-controlled Vocal Enhancer identifies voice frequencies so you can raise or lower them with keys on the remote or via the controls on the front panel.
Connect an audio system via analog RCA input and the AVR's Zone 2/Zone B line-out. With Zone 2, you can play the same or different analog/digital sources (including SPDIF and HDMI) in either or both rooms at the same time. Zone B is ideal for connecting a compatible transmitter so you can listen to any source-including the TV-through wireless headphones, perfect for midnight movies and TV.
At the touch of a button, Stereo Assign Mode switches playback from Front speakers to either Surround, Rear Surround, or Height speaker pairs. Ideal for ambient listening, BGM, or any time you want to create a relaxing atmosphere.
