This is a swop out unit from agents to the NR626.
This model from Onkyo has a very high quality of audio both in stereo and in home theter. The main reason behind that is it’s THX Select2 Plus Certificate. You will get a power hog with 110W per channel that can drive the full 5.1 HT in one room with 2.1 speaker configuration in the other room at the same time. Onkyo will never stop surprising us with features that are coming on their new models. Ok consider this 800$ for the every option you will need for many many time. This is a good deal in our book. The most important feature that we like very much is that Onkyo TX-NR727 comes with the built in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth adapters inside. So you don’t need to buy additional USB components for that. Ok in this case we could say that the Ethernet port is maybe a third wheel but we are feeling much safer when we have the option tu put our cable somewhere. The only thing we are missing here in this price range is AirPlay. We could tolerate that on TX-NR626 but this time it would be the top feature. This device supports almost every meaningful online service that you like and you need. There is Last.fm, SiriusXM, Spotify , Rhapsody and even TuneIN and some others too. Streaming music has never been easier cause there is Onkyo Remote app that is available for free for your smart-phones. With this application you can change the needed things on your receiver on the fly including Zone controls. For better and easier calibration of your speakers there are Audyssey Dynamic EQ and Audyssey Dynamic Volume that will doo their job in no time with the great precision. And one thing that we almost forget to tell you is that all HDMI ports support 4K and 3D upscalling. So that is it about features we think you don’t need more of them. Mybe Airplay:)

You know us that we don’t want to bother you too much with many details that most of us maybe don’t even track. So we will stay on our path of bringing you the reviews you can understand this time too. Onkyo TX-NR727 is worth every penny when you consider what you will get from it. On the stereo testing we tested it with the Led Zepellin’s songs ”Kashmir” , ”Stairway to Heaven” and some songs from the Porcupine Tree – Lightbulb Sun album. The sound was exceptional, detailed, dynamic, alive and really neutral. So this device is also good if you want to replace some of your stereo amplifiers that you have home for years but you don’t want’ to put device on device. In home theater we were blown away cause there is also one thing more for you to reconsider. It is har do find the Audio Video Receiver that is THX certified in this price range. Wireless stream worked super fluid with all of it’s glow. We still could use the AirPlay but we don’t mind it really:)
