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 theater-reference sound

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.

TX-NR595 THX

Dolby Atmos® and DTS:X®- setting sound free

multiroom audio

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.

Dolby Atmos Height Virtualizer

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.

Dolby DTS

Flexible 3D sound with DTS Virtual:X®

TX-NR595 dts virtual

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.

Ready for 4K HDR entertainment®

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.

4K HDR

Rich analog sound from any digital source

VLSC

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.

Dynamic Audio Amplification

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.

Key design enhancements improve sound

TX-NR696 HDMI board

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 Room Acoustic Calibration with AccuReflex

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 share audio flexibly

TX-NR696 Zone 2

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.

Quad-core SoC supports 802.11ac Wi-Fi®

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.

Clearer dialog at the touch of a button

usb audio

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.

Share audio or listen privately

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.
