“The rear-facing subwoofer adds the sort of weight and depth to proceedings most rivals would need a separate bass-box to muster.
In short, it’s a weightier, more full-bodied and all-round better sonic performance than is available from practically any other TV right now.
But that isn’t to say it’s perfect. This is good sound by flatscreen standards, but it’s still quite easily trumped by a capable soundbar.”
But extensive features aside, what really impresses us is how articulate, rhythmically precise and musical this AV receiver sounds. It’s punchy enough and fully exciting, but we love how it gives importance to the subtler aspects of sound quality.
While the mid-range priced receiver market is the most competitive and sought out range for purchase by consumers, the Onkyo TX-NR676 stands out in the crowd due to the emphasis on sound quality. It took everything I could throw at it and kept asking for more, with the Music Optimizer feature cleaning up not only compressed audio tracks but my vinyl as well. Onkyos’ Vector Linear Shaping Circuitry (VLSC), which takes the signal and completely removes pulse noise generated by the digital to analog conversion, made a noticeable difference in sound when comparing to high end external DAC’s I had on hand, allowing music played through the USB input to sound closer to pure analog such as high end tape or vinyl. The few times it didn’t satisfy me musically was due to comparison with products costing 10x as much, or pushing it far past what the general consumer would likely not push to. I highly recommend this unit and I will be sad to see it
