Onkyo TX-NR656


Onkyo gjør jobben, men har et par lyter.

Mit optimierter Dolby-Atmos-Einmessung, dicker Multimedia-Ausstattung und voller 4K-Kompatibilität ist der Onkyo für 650 Euro ein echtes Schnäppchen. Leider wird DTS:X erst per Firmware-Update nachgereicht.

An amazing amp with everything you need!


Purchased this as I wanted to move from 7.1 on my old Onkyo amp to atmos and dts-x, set up was easy on the whole and the difference in sound using atmos was unbelievable. Also had the bonus of wifi and Bluetooth so I could use my Spotify account on it....
