Product Overview

Onkyo TX-SR494 is an affordable 7.2-channel AV receiver. It comes with a basic set of I/O options and supports Dolby Atmos and DTS:X surround sound. It is essentially the TX-SR393 with two additional surround channels.
Unlike higher-end models, the TX-SR494 is not a network receiver, though it still supports Bluetooth connectivity and is able to stream music from smart devices.
In terms of physical connections, the TX-SR494 is somewhat limited. It lacks phono preamp, which makes it unsuitable for any setup with turntables / vinyl. All but two of its speaker terminals are also of the snap type, which reflects the receiver's budget positioning. Nevertheless, it does have two digital inputs.
The TX-SR494 is also available with DAB+ tuner as TX-SR494DAB. It is the successor to the TX-SR474 from 2017, which by now is quite outdated.
A few other receivers by Onkyo from 2019 include the TX-RZ740, TX-RZ840, TX-NR696, and TX-RZ3400.
