Future-Ready with the Latest HDMI®
Imagine playing the latest RPG blockbuster on your Ultra HDTV at a breathtaking 60 frames per second. Now add thunderous 5.2-channel surround sound from Onkyo. With every HDMI terminal on your TX-NR535 receiver supporting HDMI 2.0 4K/60 Hz, all this and more is possible. Even if you’re not planning on upgrading your current display right away, it’s good to know your Onkyo receiver is ready for the future of gaming and video entertainment.

Wi-Fi® and Bluetooth Inside
The TX-NR535 has Wi-Fi and Bluetooth technology built in. No wires, no dongles, no mess. Complete the one-time Wi-Fi setup, download our streaming and control app, and you’ve got a full range of remote control and audio streaming features in the palm of your hand. You can also pair your Bluetooth-capable device and stream direct to your home cinema. With Advanced Music Optimizer DSP compensating for compression, music via Bluetooth has never sounded better.

Stream from Smartphone and Tablet
For instant lossless or high-resolution audio streaming, just tap on the Onkyo Remote App icon on your smartphone and you’ll find your music is loaded up and ready to stream, with all the playback features you’re used to. Your receiver switches on automatically, selects your preferred playback mode, and you’re ready to rock and roll.

Stream Hi-res Audio from PC and NAS
Some A/V receivers might boast high-resolution capability, but few have been engineered for universal compatibility and ultimate ease of use like ours. Use the remote app to quickly locate and stream your 192/24 and 96/24 hi-res albums from PC or NAS and discover how truly amazing music can sound on an A/V receiver built for high-definition audio.

Built-in Internet Radio and Streaming
If you can think of it, you’ll most likely be able to stream it on your TX-NR535. The receiver comes loaded with Spotify, AUPEO!, TuneIn, and now Deezer, the music subscription service available in over 200 countries and boasting a library of an astonishing 25 million songs. You can select a station and search for music available on these services via the Onkyo app on your phone.

Play Lossless Music from USB
If you prefer a wired connection, the front-panel USB port is ready to accept almost any audio file format from mass-storage class drives. As well all the usual compressed formats, there’s FLAC, WAV, ALAC, and DSD support. Alternatively, you can connect your PC, smartphone, tablet or music player using one of the many digital and analog audio inputs and an appropriate cable.

Remote Control App for Smartphone and Tablet
The free Onkyo Remote App gets your system up and playing your selection in moments. You get all the playback controls, speaker adjustments, listening modes, and input source selections you need for everyday use at your fingertips. Tap the music icon and you’ll find a menu for internet radio and streaming services along with all the music stored on your handheld device, PC, or NAS.

Fast Switching and Adjustment
Our user interface is a thing of beauty. The Home menu is mainly for detailed adjustment and setup (such as configuring your A/V receiver remote to control all the components in your system, or to assign specific listening modes to different inputs). But if you just want to quickly boost the center level, switch DSP modes, or change sources, the “Q” button overlays a transparent menu on screen and lets you get the job done in seconds, without interrupting the program.

Hi-fi Power and Fidelity
WRAT (Wide Range Amplifier Technology) is all about current. You need lots of it to stay in control when speaker impedance fluctuates, and to hang on without clipping as the soundtrack suddenly explodes into action. We use a massive high-power transformer to drive discrete, low-negative-feedback amps that cut distortion and preserve the energy of music. Combined with high-resolution processing, the TX-NR535 packs a colossal punch for movies but still retains the pure musicality you need for two-channel playback.

Phase-Matching Bass Enhancement
PM Bass optimizes low frequencies while preserving mid-range clarity. It counters phase shifting (which generally occurs in the zone occupied by vocals) by synchronizing the timing of different frequencies. The result is deep, well-defined bass that won’t blur vocals or strings.

Hybrid Standby Saves Power

HDMI passthrough and network connectivity are maintained while the receiver is powered down. You can use your TV and other connected devices when you don’t want to turn on the receiver, which saves on your energy bill. The TX-NR535 is also compliant with the Smart Grid system.

Preview Your HD Video Sources
Video switching is made easy with InstaPrevue™ technology. Press the Home button, select InstaPrevue, and video thumbnails overlay on the program you’re watching, allowing you to preview content on any component connected via HDMI. This is great for keeping an eye on the cable sports channel while you watch a Blu-ray, for example, and is a fast and convenient way to flip between sources.

AccuEQ Room Calibration
Calibrating the sound to suit your room’s acoustics is simple with AccuEQ. Once you’ve plugged in your speakers, connect the included mic and wait a few moments as it measures things such as speaker distance, type, crossover, and output, taking into account any reflections from your walls and floor. The system then optimizes the frequency response so you can enjoy balanced surround sound regardless of room shape or furnishing.
