156623
The NS-6170 combines the accessibility and usability of digital audio with the soul of analog, 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.

Engineered for Hi-Res Audio

Hi-Res Audio contains more information and therefore more of the recording’s atmosphere, allowing you to hear and feel things you miss with other formats. The NS-6170 is built from the ground up to preserve the fidelity of DSD 11.2 MHz and 192/24 Hi-Res Audio formats so you get a complete sonic picture.

Wideband DIDRC Filter

DIDRC (Dynamic Intermodulation Distortion Reduction Circuitry) Filter replaces standard DAC output filters. Hi-Res Audio covers a much wider frequency band than CDs, and conventional filters can’t erase noise that falls outside that spectrum. This interference alters the harmonic character of audible sound. Wideband DIDRC Filter erases ultra-high frequency distortion for unparalleled fidelity.

Connect and Play HDD Audio via USB

Connect mass-storage-class HDDs via front or rear USB inputs and put your entire digital music collection at your fingertips. Use the new Onkyo Controller app to browse, select, and play albums from HDD quickly and easily. Note: HDD must be formatted to FAT32.

Chromecast built-in* for Mobiles and PCs

Chromecast built-in lets you cast audio from your mobile or laptop to the NS-6170. Control playback via familiar apps for iPhone, iPad, and Android™ devices as well as Mac, Windows®, and Chromebook™ computers.

Separate Power Supply Paths for Stereo Precision

The NS-6170 features a twin monaural layout for L/R channels with separate power supply paths, upgraded transformer, and extra-large audio capacitors for left and right DACs. This dual design enhances power stability and precision for extremely accurate stereo playback, adding authenticity and emotion to the musical experience.

Dual-Differential DAC Configuration

Flagship AK4490 768 kHz/32-bit DACs for L/R channels decode the positive and negative halves of the signal waveform separately. As well as improving voltage stability and dropping the noise floor, dual- differential DAC configuration increases bandwidth and pulls every detail from Hi-Res Audio.
