Pure Audio Muscle in a Space-Saving Design

Fathomless power, the lushness of detail, and ultimate convenience in a space-saving design: that’s the R-N855 in a nutshell. Serving music from connected HDDs and wirelessly from almost any audio app via Chromecast built-in, FlareConnect™, AirPlay and Bluetooth®, the receiver also features an FM/DAB+ tuner, internet radio and inputs for turntable and CD. Peek under the hood and you’ll find a fully customised transformer powering original Switching Amplifier technology. High-grade audio circuit boards are packed with top-quality audio components including two huge capacitors that deliver loads of oomph and deep, powerful bass. Housed in a rigid full-flat metal chassis reinforced by a solid aluminium faceplate, this amp is built heavy for full-scale sound.

* Enabled with a firmware update.

 

Hi-Fi Performance from a Compact Body

Onkyo’s in-house-developed Switching Amplifier technology delivers high power with vanishingly low distortion from a physically small receiver. Powered by a custom transformer and huge audio capacitors, the discrete modulation stage delivers exceptionally clear and musical sound, even with difficult-to-drive or sensitive speakers.

Super-Rigid Construction Reflects a Premium Build

The amp system and audio circuit boards are housed in a rigid, 1.6mm-thick full-flat metal chassis further stiffened by a solid aluminium faceplate. Together with anti-resonant insulator feet, vibrations that cause interference on audio signals are virtually eliminated, improving clarity.

 

Cast Music from Mobile and PC

Chromecast built-in and AirPlay included on the receiver let you cast audio from a variety of supported applications for iPhone, iPad and Android™ devices (as well as Mac, Windows® and Chromebook™ computers) in seconds. Bluetooth® wireless technology is also included.

*Future firmware update required.

 

On-Demand Music Streaming

Support for TIDAL, Deezer and TuneIn is built into the receiver. Use the Onkyo remote app to select a service and stream essentially any music you want, or stream directly from the Spotify® application.

 

Select, Play and Update Music Stored on a Connected HDD

Load your entire digital library onto an HDD, connect it to one of the receiver’s USB inputs, and use our smartphone app to browse and play anything in your collection complete with album art and song information. A future firmware update will enable full music server capability with audio files writable to HDD via personal computer.

* HDD must be formatted for FAT32. Onkyo cannot guarantee, nor has tested for, correct operation with all HDD device types and brands.

 

VLSC™ Reduces Noise and Reveals Detail

Pulse noise arises when converting digital signals to analogue. The R-N855 features VLSC (Vector Linear Shaping Circuitry), a unique technology that analyses input and output signals and erases noise, clarifying details otherwise hidden in subtle distortion.
