There is also discrete headphone amplifier circuitry that will drive 600-ohm cans no problem. DIDRC technology aids in erasing high-frequency clock noise.
This mini system is perfect for your desktop as well, handling anything from gapless 192 kHz/24-bit FLAC to native 5.6 MHz DSD seamlessly - just browse to your albums using our remote app or stream from online services or your phone directly. An iPod/iPhone-certified terminal supports most formats on USB flash drives; there’s FM/AM radio and a front-loading CD player. Whatever your source - get ready to hear it as it should be heard.
The CR-N765 is engineered to play 192 kHz/24-bit Hi-Res PCM and native 2.8/5.6 MHz DSD formats via the home network. Download the Hi-Res albums of your choice, store them in a folder on PC or NAS, and use our smartphone app to select and stream via DLNA.
Gapless playback is supported on the most popular Hi-Res formats including FLAC, WAV, and ALAC. This prevents a distracting moment of silence when tracks blend into each other, such as between movements in classical music.
Onkyo’s free control app lets you navigate and stream music stored on your device, and also incorporates a number of internet radio and music streaming services including Spotify and Deezer. Subscribers can also stream direct to the CR-N765 from the Spotify app, which lets you use other mobile applications as you listen without pausing playback.
You can also explore a massive selection of online radio channels or browse and stream from leading on-demand music services such as Deezer, all within the smartphone app.
The front-panel USB input enables a direct-digital connection to iPod, iPod touch, and iPhone, meaning the CR-N765 performs digital-to-analog conversion for vastly improved sound quality. The connection also supports playback of compressed, lossless, and Hi-Res file formats (including DSD) stored on USB flash drives.
PM Bass optimizes low frequencies while preserving mid-range clarity. It counters phase shifting (which generally occurs in the all-important mid-range zone occupied by vocals) by synchronizing frequency timing. The result is deep, well-defined bass that won’t blur vocals or strings.
To realize our aim of reproducing authentic Hi-Fi sound in one compact component, we include Three-Stage Inverted Darlington Circuitry—the same technology used in our range-topping Reference Series Hi-Fi amplifiers. The design uses minimal negative feedback to preserve the energy and vitality of the original performance while unique three-stage topology, discrete output transistors, and a solid metal heat sink cut distortion to negligible levels. The result? Breathtaking sound.
Smoothly decoding Hi-Res PCM and Double DSD (as well as other digital sources) is the flagship AK4490 VERITA 768 kHz/32-bit stereo D/A converter. As well as reducing audio degradation, the device boasts outstanding THD+N performance and an impressively wide dynamic range. The DAC works in harmony with Onkyo’s VLSC (Vector Linear Shaping Circuitry), a system that reduces high-frequency pulse noise generated by the clocking signal. Together, these D/A conversion technologies produce brilliantly clear and detailed sound from any digital source.
The CR-N765 doubles as a dedicated DAC/amp for headphone listening. Discrete Class A/B headphone amp circuitry delivers 150 + 150 mW of power—enough to drive any headphones rated between 16 and 600 O. The amplifier also benefits from proprietary DIDRC (Dynamic Intermodulation Distortion Reduction Circuitry) originally developed for our Reference two-channel components. This technology reduces high-frequency pulse noise to enhance clarity. With onboard 32-bit D/A conversion, you can simply move the symphony inside your head any time you want without compromising the power and emotion of your listening experience.
Housed inside a thick 1.2 mm anti-vibration metal chassis are top-quality audio components. A custom power transformer links to the symmetrical L/R channels via short signal pathways to reduce errors in stereo playback. Two large 4,700 µF capacitors (sourced from our top-of-the-line P-3000R pre-amplifier) keep a deep reserve of power on hand for stellar dynamic performance, and there’s also a dedicated transformer for standby mode. Processing and amplification blocks are separated to minimize noise, and your speakers are treated to gold-plated banana-plug-compatible terminals. From top to toe, this receiver is built for high-fidelity sound.
