Ultra HD movie streaming as well as 4K gaming at 60 fps with 4K/60 Hz-compatible HDMI® 2.0* inputs and HDCP 2.2 copy-protection
compatibility. Qdeo™ upscaling technology also converts low-res DVDs and games into pin-sharp Full HD or 4K (if you have an Ultra HD
display). Secondly, it sounds incredible, with Three-Stage Inverted Darlington Circuitry on the front and center channels for all-enveloping
surround sound and musical two-channel audio. Thirdly, it’s extremely easy to use, with inbuilt Wi-Fi® for universal HD streaming from PC,
NAS, and smartphone. You can select from a wild variety of music streaming services and locate your network-attached libraries using the

TX-NR636
7.2-Channel Network A/V Receiver
Ready for the Future with HDMI® 2.0*
Engineered for High Fidelity
Imagine playing the latest RPG blockbuster on your Ultra
HDTV at a breathtaking 60 frames per second. Now add
thunderous 7.2-channel surround sound from Onkyo. With
HDMI terminals on your TX-NR636 receiver supporting
4K/60 Hz, this dream can be your reality. Even if you’re not
planning on upgrading your current display right away, it’s
good to know your receiver is ready for the future.
WRAT (Wide Range Amplifier Technology) is all about
high current. You need it to stay in control when speaker
impedance fluctuates, and to grip without clipping as the
soundtrack explodes into action. We use a massive highpower transformer driving ultra-low-distortion ThreeStage Inverted Darlington Circuitry*. Combined with HD
processing, the TX-NR636 packs a colossal punch for movies
while retaining musicality for two-channel playback.
*Supports 4K/60 Hz transmission of YCbCr 4:2:0 as defined by HDMI 2.0 specification.
Supports HDCP 2.2 for 4K Streaming and TV
With Hollywood studios, satellite TV broadcasters, and video
streaming services announcing a move to HDCP 2.2 copy
protection for future 4K and Full HD releases, it’s important
that your A/V receiver can handle this new standard. The
TX-NR636 is one of the first A/V receivers to support
HDCP 2.2, making it ready for next-generation Ultra HD
streaming and broadcasting.
4K Video Upscaling with Qdeo Technology
™
The TX-NR636 features Qdeo™ technology from Marvell to
upscale low-res video to liquid-smooth 1080p (for HDTV)
and 4K (3840 x 2160 pixels) with a compatible display. This
means video from older gaming consoles and DVD players
looks clean and sharp, giving old favorites a new lease on life.
Wi-Fi® and Bluetooth Inside
The TX-NR636 has Wi-Fi and Bluetooth technology built in.
Complete the setup, download our control app, and you’ve
got a graphic remote control and range of streaming features
in the palm of your hand. Or pair your Bluetooth-capable
device and stream almost any audio to your home theater.
With Advanced Music Optimizer enhancement, music via
Bluetooth has never sounded so good.
Stream Direct from Smartphone and Tablet
For lossless audio streaming, just tap on the Onkyo Remote
App icon on your smartphone to find your music loaded
and ready to stream with all the controls you’re used to. The
receiver can switch on and select your preferred playback
mode automatically.
Stream Your Network-Attached HD Audio
Libraries via Remote App
Onkyo A/V receivers are engineered for universal hi-res
compatibility and ease of use. Use the remote app to locate
your 192/24 and 96/24 HD albums (including 5.6 MHz DSD
playback) on PC or NAS and bask in the clarity, depth, and
detail of high-resolution music.
Built-in Internet Radio and Streaming
If you can think of it, you’ll most likely be able to stream it.
The receiver includes Spotify, AUPEO!, TuneIn, and now
Deezer, the music subscription service available in over 200
countries and boasting a library of 25 million songs. You can
search for available music using your free Onkyo remote app.

* Front and center channels only.
MHL™ for Mobile Device Connection
An HDMI/MHL terminal is included to connect smartphones
and other electronic devices, allowing you to display 1080p
video and other media on your HDTV with 7.1 channels of
surround sound.
Dolby® Pro Logic® IIz Seven-Channel Surround
Upmixing
Dolby® Pro Logic® IIz adds height to the soundstage with
two Front Height channels immersing you deeper into
the film. The system upmixes stereo or 5.1 sources to 7.1
channels, and offers a number of optimized listening modes.
Powered Multi-Zone Audio and Bi-Amping
Powered Zone 2 speaker terminals (and a Zone 2 line-out)
let you power audio in another room equipped with stereo
speakers. You can also assign surround back channels to biamp your front loudspeakers.
Remote Control App for Smartphone and Tablet
The free Onkyo Remote App gets your system up and
running in moments. All major playback controls, speaker
adjustments, listening mode/input source selections are at
your fingertips. Tap the music icon for internet radio or to
hear the music stored on your smart mobile, PC, or NAS.
Fast Switching and Adjustment
If you want to quickly adjust a speaker level, switch DSP
modes, or change inputs, the “Q” remote control button
does it in seconds by overlaying a simple transparent menu
on screen. Use InstaPrevue™ technology to preview content
playing on any HDMI-connected component—the overlaid
video thumbnails are great for keeping an eye on a cable
channel while you’re watching a Blu-ray, for example, and also
make video switching very clear and simple.
AccuEQ Room Calibration
Calibrating the sound to suit your room’s acoustics is simple
with AccuEQ. Connect the included mic and wait a few
moments as it measures speaker distances, crossovers, and
output levels, taking into account reflections from your walls
and floor. The system optimizes the frequency response so
you can enjoy balanced surround sound regardless of room
shape or furnishings.
