Tradition Meets Technology in Our Stunning New Flagship Model
The culmination of nearly 70 years’ audio engineering experience, our flagship model celebrates Onkyo’s proud heritage while pushing the boundaries of technology even further. Behind the thick anti-resonant exterior panels, you’ll find a massive toroidal transformer—assisted by separate transformers for audio and video processing—to power the Three-Stage Inverted Darlington Circuitry. Both are fundamental to achieving THX® Ultra2 Plus certification. Crucial details such as the premium 192 kHz/32-bit DACs, gold-plated speaker posts and terminals, and differential DAC mode will not escape the audiophile’s attention. Nor will the Audyssey MultEQ® XT32 and DTS Neo:X™ systems. Video processing is incomparably good, with technology from HQV®, Qdeo™, and ISF upscaling video sources to 4K. With HDMI® support for two displays, 11.4-channel pre-outs, and powered audio in three zones, your entertainment options extend throughout the home, yet are easily managed with our convenient remote apps and HDMI-enabled GUI. A total of 11 HDMI ports (including MHL™ for smart phone), DLNA, and ample legacy connections allow your media to be played with exhilarating power and accuracy. This iconic blend of phenomenal sound and advanced technology is why more home cinema experts own an Onkyo.

THX® Ultra2 Plus® Certified
The ultimate benchmark for home audio performance, THX Ultra2 Plus is specified for rooms where the screen-to-seat viewing distance is more than four meters and the room volume is 85 cubic meters or greater. To achieve THX Ultra2 Plus certification, the TX-NR5010 must meet the world’s most demanding standards for home cinema audio quality and performance, and must play at reference volume levels with minimal distortion.
World’s Best Video Processing
Three of the best video processing and enhancement systems are included to guarantee smooth and accurate images on your HDTV.
HQV® Vida™ VHD1900
The Vida VHD1900 upscales analog content to 1080p, and enhances native high-definition sources. The chip employs multi-cadence tracking, expanded 12-bit color processing, and four-field motion-adaptive de-interlacing. Auto HQV™ enhances the incoming image, while HQV StreamClean™ cleans up video from lower-quality online sources by eliminating mosquito and block noise.
Marvell Qdeo™ Technology
Qdeo technology upscales 1080p sources to 4K (4096 x 2160)—even content already upscaled from lower resolutions by the HQV Vida processor. Played back on a compatible 4K display, your highdefinition content will look more cinematic than ever.
ISF Video Calibration
ISF (Imaging Science Foundation) video calibration dramatically improves picture quality. Each video input source is independently calibrated to achieve the best possible performance from your connected HDTV.
Onkyo Remote Apps for iPod touch/iPhone and Android Phone
The Onkyo remote control apps for iPod touch/iPhone*1 and Android phone*2 both provide intuitive ways to operate Onkyo network A/V receivers. Control input sources, adjust settings, and play audio stored in a smart phone wirelessly (Android phone) using the application’s interactive graphical display. The two Remote Apps are available separately as free downloads.
*1 Compatible with iPod touch (3rd generation or later) and iPhone 3GS or later. All models require iOS 4.2 or later. *2 Requires Android OS 2.1 or later.
Three High-Performance Sound Expansion Systems
A nine-channel system provides the ultimate entertainment experience, with additional High and Wide channels convincing you with realistic directional and ambient effects. Audyssey DSX®, Dolby® Pro Logic® IIz, and DTS Neo:X™ expansion systems offer you freedom to choose your preferred speaker setup. Audyssey DSX can expand 5.1-channel sources to incorporate Wide and Height channels. The Dolby system adds Height channels and stereo source expansion, while DTS Neo:X offers Wides and Heights with cinema, music, or game listening modes.
House-wide Audio and Video Entertainment
Now there’s a way to share your hi-def content on a second TV—say, a wall-mounted flatscreen in the kitchen or bedroom—without having to buy and connect another Bluray player or set-top box. Connect your additional display using the receiver’s Zone 2 HDMI output to enjoy the same program, or two different HD sources, in both rooms. Naturally, this receiver also powers audio in two other zones by assigning Front Wide or Front High channel outputs. Playback of audio and video is easily controlled with the main system remote or Onkyo remote control app.
Design and Build to Audiophile Standards
From the gold-plated A/V and speaker terminals through to the massive toroidal transformer at its heart, the TX-NR5010 is built to uncompromising standards of excellence. For example, to limit the effects of interference, the pre-amp block and power amplifier are housed separately. There are dedicated transformers for audio and video processing. Anti-resonant aluminum side panels are fitted to reduce vibration. And on the processing side, PLL (Phase Locked Loop) jitter-cleaning technology removes digital pulse noise, while VLSC™ circuits help to create a pristine analog waveform, ready for amplification by Onkyo’s efficient Three-Stage Inverted Darlington Circuitry. This abundance of clean power, advanced processing technology, and generous build specification are what allow the TX-NR5010 to drive your home entertainment to previously unimagined heights.
