THX® Select2 Plus™ for Cinema-Reference Sound
To be awarded THX Select2 Plus certification—the most rigorous performance benchmark for this type of product—the A/V receiver must play at cinema reference volume levels with minimal distortion. Select2 Plus is specified for screen-to-seat distances of three to four meters and room volumes of about 56 cubic meters.
Onboard Wi-Fi and Bluetooth Streaming Technology
The TX-NR929 connects to the wireless home network without LAN cables or adapters. Send a range of hi-res, lossless, and compressed files to your home cinema from smartphone, PC, tablet, NAS, and online sources using our remote control app. Or pair devices for quality wireless streaming using the built-in Bluetooth technology.
Music Streaming and Internet Radio Services
The TX-NR929 comes preloaded with popular music streaming and internet radio services including Spotify,, and TuneIn Radio. They’re easily selectable using the receiver’s GUI or the remote control app. Explore more than 10,000 radio stations and enjoy albums and playlists with reference-level sound.
Note: Availability of services depends on region. Some services may require a subscription and a firmware update. Availability of services advertised here is accurate at the time of publication, but may be subject to change without notice.
HDMI® for High-Resolution Playback
The TX-NR929 features nine HDMI inputs to accept hi-res content from your media players and gaming consoles. HDMI enables Dolby® TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio™ audio formats, and supports 3D video. Two HDMI outputs are included for high-definition video in two separate zones.
Supports 4K Video Content
With 4K televisions, media players, and projectors hitting the market, it’s reassuring to know your A/V receiver is compatible with this new technology. Passthrough of native 4K from source devices to an appropriate display is fully supported.
4K Video Upscaling via Qdeo™ Technology
The TX-NR929 uses class-leading Qdeo technology from Marvell to upscale standard video sources to brilliantly smooth 1080p (for regular HDTVs) and to an incredible 4K on compatible displays.
MHL™ for Mobile Phones and Tablets
A frontside HDMI/MHL terminal is included to connect smartphones and other electronic devices. MHL allows you to display 1080p video and other media on your HDTV with 7.1-channel surround sound.
Quick and Easy Remote App Control
Remote apps for iPhone and Android devices offer a convenient way to control your housewide entertainment from anywhere within wireless range. The app offers a clear interface for managing content and settings across multiple zones.
Hassle-Free Video Switching
Switching between games, movies, and cable TV should be easy. InstaPrevue™ technology names your HDMI devices and displays video thumbnails of available content. Now you can switch sources without having to remember what device is connected where.
Overlaid Menus for Quick Adjustments
Touch the Quick Set-Up button on your remote to overlay menus in-program. You can now access useful settings without interruption to your viewing. The Home Menu, meanwhile, offers simple icons for choosing a media source, and for more detailed system adjustment.
Onkyo Premium Hi-Fi Sound
Onkyo’s WRAT (Wide Range Amp Technology) includes low-negative-feedback amplifiers for punchy, true-to-life sound; closed ground-loop circuits to reduce noise; and high instantaneous current to handle big dynamic gains. With its sophisticated control technology and discrete output stage, Three-Stage Inverted Darlington Circuitry is designed for high-energy output and very low distortion.
Three High Performance Sound Expansion Systems
Audyssey DSX®, Dolby® Pro Logic® IIz, and DTS Neo:X™ expansion systems allow you to choose your preferred speaker setup. Audyssey DSX expands 5.1-channel sources to incorporate Wide or Height channels. Pro Logic IIz adds Height channels with stereo source expansion, while DTS Neo:X offers Wides and Heights and supports 11.1-channel upmixing with the addition of an outboard stereo amp.
Audyssey MultEQ® XT32
Audyssey’s top-flight room correction suite equalizes the sound to suit the acoustics of your listening space. High-res filters are applied to all channels—including subwoofers—based on information collected from more than 10,000 individual control points across eight measurement positions.
High-Definition Video in Two Rooms
Now there’s a way to enjoy your hi-def content on a second TV without having to purchase another Blu-ray player or set-top box. Connect your additional display using the receiver’s Zone 2 HDMI output to enjoy the same program, or two different HD sources, in both rooms.
App-Controllable Multi-Zone Audio
This receiver features Powered Zone 2 and Powered Zone 3 outputs. You can assign surround channels to power audio in two additional rooms equipped with speakers while preserving a 5.2-channel setup in your cinema room. Content is managed via remote app, allowing you to play the same song in all zones using Whole House Mode, or to enjoy a different track in every room.
Digital Processing Crossover Network

Should you wish to bi-amp your front speakers, our onboard digital crossover system precisely separates high and low frequencies into two discrete signals and sends them to the appropriate drivers. Used in conjunction with conventional speakers, or with channel-divider-type speakers (which do not contain crossovers), the sophisticated DSP technology reduces frequency overlap at the crossover point for noticeably clearer sound.
Phase-Matching Bass Enhancement
Onkyo’s PM Bass optimizes low frequencies while preserving mid-range clarity. It counters phase shifting (which can affect sound quality) by synchronizing frequency timing. The result is deep, well-defined bass that won’t overwhelm vocals or strings.
