Core Features

Power: The TX-8470 incorporates a high-current Class G amplifier that can deliver 110 watts per channel at 8ohms. The Class G amplifier ensures an efficient, accurate reproduction of audio signals throughout the frequency range via a low negative feedback design (NFB). This provides greater transparency and musicality. For added support, the TX-8470 features an AKM Premium 32-bit / 768 kHz Stereo 2-channel DAC (Digital to Analog Converter).

Connectivity: Abundant connectivity is included. Wireless options include Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. 

Wired connectivity includes 4 HDMI inputs with support for HDMI-ARC, 8K/40 Gbps video support, and audio-only Digital Optical (x2) and Digital Coaxial (x1) input connections. Gold-plated speaker terminals and audio-grade capacitors provide clean sound, while carefully selected copper components support a high current drive and minimize vibrations, resulting in superior sound reproduction and a richer listening experience.

Tech Note: The TX-8470 does not decode or pass through Dolby or DTS surround sound audio

Dedicated MM/MC Phono Input: The Onkyo TX-8470 supports vinyl record fans with the inclusion of a dedicated MM/MC Phono input with supporting discrete op amp circuits and isolated circuits that protect from unwanted distortions to improve clarity and audio performance.

AM/FM Tuner and Streaming: For those who enjoy listening to the radio, the TX-8470 includes a traditional AM/FM tuner – but it doesn’t stop there. The TX-8470 also provides access to key streaming services such as Spotify, Amazon Music HD, Tidal, Deezer, TuneIn radio, and Pandora, as well as supporting the Works with Sonos platform and Roon, and multi-room broadcast support via Wi-Fi. Of course, Bluetooth, Chromecast built-in, and Airplay provide additional music listening options.

Two-Channel Listening: The TX-8470 is a great choice for consumers who are not interested in multi-speaker surround sound set-ups but want exceptional sound performance for music and movies. Only having to deal with 2-channels, attention is made to optimize audio quality, and, of course, speaker setup is easier. 

Control: The TX-8470 comes with a traditional-looking remote control but support also provides for voice control via built-in Google (Google Assistant) and Apple (Siri).

    Robert,

    You’ve teased me with the mention of Energy in your first paragraph. Do you have any inkling when or if the Premium Audio Company plans to start producing speakers under the Energy brand again?

        David/Robert,

        We are all still waiting to find out what happened to “Mirage” that was supposedly returning. It’s starting to feel like a mirage at this point.

        Best,

        Ian White
