The Foundation of Onkyo Sound
At the core of Onkyo's Signature sound is Onkyo's proprietary Wide Range Amplifier Technology (WRAT). This technology includes discrete low-negative-feedback amplifiers for punchy,
true-to-life sound; closed ground-loop circuits to reduce
noise, and high instantaneous current to counter impedance
From the quietest dialog passages to booming action scenes, Onkyo's exclusive amp technology enhances the audio of your movies, music and games like you've never before experienced.
Working in concert with WRAT amps, Three-Stage Inverted Darlington Circuitry is also a core Onkyo technology. It incorporates a low negative feedback design that conducts more sublimely natural sound. It's used on all channels to handle reference-level playback without distortion.
Take a look at the TX-NR828's WRAT features here.
Powerful Bass AND Clear Vocals
Phase-Matching Bass optimizes low frequencies and preserves mid-range clarity. This means that powerful bass plays back with clear vocals; it doesn't overpower them.
Onkyo's PM Bass boost technology improves the phase timing to preserve the natural clarity of the mid-range, and allows vocals and strings to shine while maintaining a smooth, powerful bass response at all volume levels.
