Onkyo has announced its 2016 range of receivers, which include features such as Dolby Atmos, Google Cast and the company's first multiroom system.
While you can pay thousands of dollars for an AV receiver we've focused on the best bang-for-your-buck models between $200 and $1000. You'll generally get five-to-eight HDMI inputs, built-in networking functionality, and automatic speaker calibration.
Considering the Onkyo TX-NR646's generous feature set and superlative sonic skills, it's one heck of a value.
Onkyo's TX-NR535 receiver offers decent home-theater performance and a useful number of streaming features, but it's not the last word on value.
The Onkyo TX-NR636 offers a compelling mix of features and performance with "future-proofing" that is unparalleled for the money.
Onkyo's TX-NR525 is a solid AV receiver value, especially considering its affordable accessories, but competitors offer integrated wireless features for not much more.
Onkyo's TX-NR626 is a value-packed AV receiver with Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and even a turntable input, but it's just short of being our top pick.
Yamaha's RX-V475 is a great-sounding 5.1 receiver and a good value, although competitors offer better features and design.
The Onyko TX-NR414 offers the best AV receiver value for those with a tight budget, although the step-up TX-NR515 model is worth the extra cash if you can afford it.
Pricing not available
The Onkyo TX-NR616 is a tremendous AV receiver value, with eight HDMI inputs and a very low street price, although Onkyo's step-down models may be an even better buy.
The Onkyo TX-NR609 has six HDMI inputs and lots of built-in streaming music services, but it lacks AirPlay and doesn't sound quite as good to our ears as some competitors.
