Onkyo TX-NR545 review

Onkyo TX-NR545

Despite the fact that Onkyo TX-NR545 is considered an entry-level receiver, it gives a soft, but at the same time dense and surround sound in the game mode and when watching movies, and also pleases with a wealth of shades of sound and good dynamics in the music listening mode. However, Onkyo TX-NR545 review with all the technical advantages and nuances of this device should be described in more detail.

Design

If on the front panel of last year’s TX-NR636 model, there were a USB port and an HDMI input, now they have been replaced with composite video input and stereo RCA, as well as a 6.3 mm headphone output. The rest of the Onkyo TX-NR545 specs don’t differ from each other: the same durable case in the black or silver finish, strict and neat, as well as a convenient remote control with practical dimensions and a thoughtful arrangement of buttons.

Features

The sound calibration does a great job. Features and sound are really good and the volume fills a space easily. It is great, an affordable system with 2 zones, TV inside and music outside. This is a solid receiver for an affordable price, one that is always on. As a budget-friendly receiver with 4k capabilities, it should last you for years.

Performance

The clock radio amps in this thing have an audible distortion rate, but that's not the real world, just don't put it in too large a room. And since you can't put an amp on it, I would strongly suggest you do what's called "BI-AMPING", that is if your speakers allow it. This receiver can receive various audio files wirelessly via Bluetooth and Wi-Fi. In addition, this device supports the AirPlay interface.

Sound Quality

Changing the video/audio source is as easy as selecting the source on the Remote Control and presto, you are watching what you want to see and hear what you want to hear. The Bluetooth feature is nice for listening to the music; select Bluetooth on the remote and start enjoying. Great surround receiver, and good for listening in a non-critical fashion. Being of audiophile pretensions, this is not for serious audio, but not what it’s built for.

Connectivity

Support for Airplay (iTunes speaker mirroring not noticing ANY delays or echo, but I have a good home network), Bluetooth, and DLNA, as well as online services such as Pandora, Sirius. Spotify and Deezer. The amplifier with which this device is equipped is made of discrete elements, due to which the device demonstrates impressive performance, especially in the new surround sound mode - Dolby Atmos.

Pretty good audio automatic calibration system. Six HDMI inputs, 3 of them with the latest protocols necessary for ultra high-def. Can make even mediocre speakers sound pretty good.

Setup

Setting up Onkyo is no more complicated than most similar receivers; all connectors are clearly signed. Turn on the device in the network, connect the microphone to adjust - and everything will turn out by itself.

Conclusion

Despite the fact that this receiver is ranked as a class of initial Hi-Fi equipment, it can compete with more expensive models for its functional equipment. The obvious advantage of such an acquisition, since with excellent technical indicators, this device is not too expensive.
