tx nr1030 review

Get tomorrow’s high-impact entertainment today with the TX-NR1030, a 9.2-channel Dolby Atmos ready network AV receiver. It features 8 HDMI inputs and 2 outputs along with HDCP 2.2 copy protection and 4K up scaling. It’s easy to connect legacy game consoles, DVDs and broadcast TV to your TX-NR1030 and enjoy liquid-smooth 1080p (for a full HD display) or 4K on compatible Ultra HD displays.

The TX-NR1030 supports Dolby Atmos, the revolutionary surround-sound format that adds a new dimension to movie soundtracks. By combining object-oriented mixing with ceiling channels to move directional effects around and above your listening position, Dolby Atmos makes you feel like you are in the center of the action.

Built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth with our free control app open a world of wireless digital music, from hi-res audio streaming through to Spotify. Our Advanced Music Optimizer enhancement delivers near CD-quality playback. The TX-NR1030 is THX Select2 Plus certified to deliver an experience that is close to what you’d find in the cinema.

Built-in AccuEQ is a room correction system with a calibration microphone. It analyzes speaker placement, measures sound pressure levels, and optimizes frequency response based on the data it collects. The result is precise equalization for the entire speaker array and a sound-field tailored to your specific listening environment. This delivers an immersive, lifelike in-film experience. DTS Neo:X is also included. It uses unique algorithms to upmix stereo or 5.1-channel soundtracks to Dolby Atmos, allowing the original content to be played back in a multi-channel environment. Musical elements and non-directional sound effects, such as crowd noise and helicopter blades, really benefit from this treatment.
