The CS-N765 is the successor to Onkyo's Award-winning CR-N755 network CD receiver, and comes with a host of “significant upgrades”, including high-res audio support and a new headphone amp.

The CR-N765 CD receiver forms the heart of the system and features a high-grade, DSD-supporting Verita DAC. Onkyo claims this allows gapless playback of 24-bit/192kHz and 2.8 MHz or 5.6 MHz DSD files streamed over a network.

The new Class A/B headphone amplifier uses trickle-down technology from Onkyo's high-end Reference hi-fi components, which Onkyo claims helps to remove noise from the signal for improved audio.

Besides networked audio the CR-N765 can accept audio from a variety of sources - you can play music from an iDevice using Onkyo's compatible USB port. The port also supports high-resolution PCM and DSD files from a USB flash drive.

In addition there's a front-loading CD player and FM/AM radio tuner, while an optional UBT-1 Bluetooth USB adaptor will allow for wireless aptX Bluetooth streaming. 

 

More after the break

It will be available in black or silver from the end of May. The CS-N765 system costs £450 and comes with a pair of Onkyo's D-055 bookshelf speakers in tow, while the CR-N765 receiver is available on its own for £350.

Onkyo's news comes hot on the heels of Denon announcing the D-M40, the successor to another Award-winning system.

Onkyo vs Denon

Hello, I'm torn between Onkyo CR-N765 and Denon RCD-M40; I'm not interested in the features of music streaming, network ecc. Which device would you recommend?

Onkyo vs Denon

Well the Denon has just won our system Product of the Year, so we'd heartily recommend that!
