THXÂ® Certified Selectâ„¢ reference sound
THX Certified Select guarantees the high-volume sound experienced at a commercial cinema in your home. To gain certification, amplifiers must pass severe THX bench-tests covering every aspect of audio performance. THX Certified Select components suit rooms where screen-to-seat viewing distance is about 3 meters and room volume around 57 cubic meters.
Dolby AtmosÂ® and DTS:XÂ® with upmixing solutions
Object-based audio lets sounds play independently through any speaker, moving all around your audience so they feel 5.2.2-ch Dolby Atmos or DTS:X soundtracks with natural conviction. DTS Neural:XÂ® and Dolby Surround upmixing solutions find spatial cues in legacy multichannel soundtracks and upmix them for 3D audio playback through your object-audio-ready speaker system. Both solutions offer cross-compatible support for common movie soundtracks, such as DolbyÂ® Digital 5.1, DolbyÂ® TrueHD, and DTS-HD Master Audioâ„¢, so you can enjoy more immersive 3D sound from your movie library as well as with supported video streaming services.

Stream any music from your smartphone, laptop, or PC to the TX-NR686 with ease. Control playback with Chromecast enabled apps you know and love from your iPhone, iPad, Androidâ„¢ phone or tablet, MacÂ® or WindowsÂ® laptop, or Chromebookâ„¢. If you have a speaker device featuring the Google Assistant, such as the Onkyo Smart Speaker G3, you can cue, play, and control music playback on your TX-NR686 by voice.
