Network CD Receiver

This is the best high-fidelity CD Receiver we’ve ever made. Almost all of the premium technology featured in our Reference components has found its way inside the thick metal chassis to bring network Hi-Res PCM and double-rate DSD to your listening space. Everything is premium spec, from discrete three-stage amp circuitry to the top-shelf 768 kHz/32-bit D/A converter with VLSC™ pulse-noise removal. The huge capacitors, heavy-duty transformer, and symmetrical amp layout effortlessly power your choice of bookshelf speakers.

We pair discrete headphone amplifier circuitry that will drive 600-ohm cans with DIDRC technology to erase high-frequency clock noise. So this receiver is perfect for your desktop as well. Hi-Res is zero hassle. The CR-N765 will handle 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.



VERITA_AK4490EQAll-New 32-bit D/A Conversion with VLSC™ Technology

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.

VLSC (Vector Linear Shaping Circuitry)

Virtually removes digital pulse noise for a smooth analog signal.
Conventional D/A conversion methods reduce digital pulse noise at the conversion stage but can’t remove it completely. VLSC employs a unique D/A conversion circuit to overcome this problem. Data is converted between sampling points and these points are joined with analog vectors in real time to produce a smooth output wave form. The result—a virtually noiseless, smooth, analog signal based on the digital source that brings out even the most subtle of nuances in music sources (including DVD-Audio and Super Audio CD), DVD Video sources (including high-definition), broadcasts, digital music files such as MP3s, and gaming content.


WRAT (Wide Range Amplifier Technology)

CR-N755WRAT is based around a low negative-feedback circuit topology that works to reduce signal noise and distortion across the frequency range. A “closed ground-loop circuit” design is employed, in which each circuit has a separate link to the power supply. This helps to cancel individual circuit noise and keep the ground potential free of distortion. High Instantaneous Current Capability (HICC) enables WRAT amplifiers to immediately cancel the speakers’ reflex energy and instantaneously send out the next signal. The same high current better manages speaker impedance fluctuations, which can negatively affect performance.
