Overlaid Menus for Quick Adjustments
To be awarded THX Select2 Plus certification—the most
rigorous performance benchmark for this type of product—
the home cinema receiver must play at studio reference
volume levels with minimal distortion. Select2 Plus is
specified for screen-to-seat distances of three to four meters
and room volumes of about 56 cubic meters.
Touch the Quick Set-Up button on your remote to overlay
menus in-program. You can now access useful settings

meanwhile, offers simple icons for choosing a media source,
and more detailed system adjustment.

discrete low-negative-feedback amplifiers for punchy, true-tolife sound; closed ground-loop circuits to reduce noise; and high
instantaneous current to counter impedance fluctuations.ThreeStage Inverted Darlington Circuitry is used on all channels to
handle reference-level playback without distorting.

An Introduction to High-End Sound Quality
Audyssey MultEQ®
MultEQ equalizes your system to suit the unique shape of
your room. Measuring six listening positions, MultEQ applies
filters to satellites and subwoofers to create a perfectly
balanced soundstage.
Audyssey Dynamic EQ®
Dynamic EQ solves the problem of deteriorating sound
quality at low volume. It selects the best frequency response
and surround levels moment-by-moment, resulting in an
optimal listening experience at any volume.
Audyssey Dynamic Volume®
Audyssey Dynamic Volume® compensates for volume
fluctuations in different audio content—for example, during
noisy commercial breaks—and adjusts the volume in real time.
Audyssey DSX® and Dolby® Pro Logic® IIz for
Expanded Surround Sound
Audyssey DSX lets you augment your setup with two Front
Wide channels, expanding the width of the soundstage, or
two Front Height speakers to add a vertical dimension to
movies and games. Dolby Pro Logic IIz offers Front Height
channels with 7.1-channel upmixing from stereo sources.
App-Controllable Multi-Zone Audio
The TX-NR727 features Powered Zone 2 outputs and Zone
2/3 line-outs. This lets you assign two channels to power audio
in a room equipped with speakers. An existing hi-fi system in a
third room can also be connected via the line-out, enabling the
use of the A/V receiver as a pre-amp and audio server. Control
content in all three zones via remote app; play the same song
in all zones; or enjoy a different song in every room.
Phase-Matching Bass Enhancement
Onkyo’s PM Bass optimizes low frequencies while preserving
mid-range clarity. It counters phase shifting (which can affect
sound quality) by synchronizing frequency timing. The result is
deep, well-defined bass that won’t overwhelm vocals or strings.
