Hi-Res Audio with an Analog Soul

The NS-6170 combines the accessibility and usability of digital audio with the soul of analogue, transforming how you experience music on your Hi-Fi system. A wideband DIDRC Filter enhances flagship dual-differential DACs at the heart of a separately powered twin-monaural L/R channel circuit layout. These technologies help articulate the distinctive and nuanced instrumental resonances contained in Hi-Res Audio signals, but with a richness and vitality seldom associated with digital listening. Connect your HDD music library via USB and flick through terabytes of tunes like fingers through a crate of records using the Onkyo Controller app, or stream whatever’s playing from mobile to the player and other supported components over Chromecast built-in*, or FlareConnect™*. Every day is a new adventure in sound and all through the same amp and speakers that make your LPs sing.
*Enabled with a firmware update.
