Onkyo has just announced the release of one of their new receivers for 2014, the TX NR737. The Onkyo TX NR737 will be one of a handful of Onkyo receivers that will be THX certified this year.

 

The 737 will come THX select plus 2 certified and in order to achieve this certification the 737, needed to pass rigorous testing and benchmarks in order to be awarded this badge of honor. The Onkyo 737 uses a multitude of hi-tech gizmos under the hood in order to produce it’s hi-fidelity sound quality. For starters, the 737 boasts two 32-bit processing engines to handle multi-channel studio-master sound tracks. The Onkyo 737 also utilizes their famed WRAT (Wide Range Amplifier Technology). Take a look inside and you’ll see that the 737 has extra large capacitors and a custom high output transformer. In order to minimize electrical interference the audio and video processors, DAC section, networking, pre-amp, amplifiers, and power supply are isolated from each other.

 

The Onkyo TX NR737 comes equipped with 7 HDMI inputs, 4 of which will be 4K compatible. It also supports the latest HDMI HDCP 2.2 DRM copy protection which is expected to be adopted by studios and other media providers who will offer 4K content. If that doesn’t satisfy your thirst for 4k, then perhaps this will. The 737 also uses Qdeo 4K video upscaling technology to upscale video to 1080p or 4K.

 

Unsurprisingly, the Onkyo 737 comes equipped with built-in WiFi and Bluetooth technologies and is DLNA compatible. Like models before, the 737 offers access to a multitude of streaming internet radio stations. If internet radio is too compressed for your audiophile ears, then you’ll be happy to know that the 737 supports most hi-resolution audio formats including FLAC, ALAC, WAV and WMA.

 

The Onkyo TX NR737 is expected to be released sometime in May at a suggested retail price of $899. Stay posted for our review of the 737 as soon as it’s released.
