Works with Sonos

This Onkyo receiver can join your existing Sonos Home Sound System, or be the start of a new one, just by pairing it with a Sonos Connect*. The AVR ties into the Sonos ecosystem, waking, changing inputs, and playing at the desired volume on command from the Sonos app*.

Dolby Atmos

You can reproduce object-oriented sound in smooth, curving movements, or the realistic three-dimensional movement overhead by the top speakers.

DTS:X

Can automatically adapt the audio to the existing channels and speaker system, no specific speaker layout is required.

Chromecast built-in

You can use your mobile device to stream your favorite music, radio, or podcasts to the receiver. You can also control the audio from anywhere in the house using Chromecast-enabled apps running on your personal device such as an iPhone, iPad, Android phone and tablet, Mac and Windows laptop, and Chromebook.

MCACC Auto Room Tuning

With the custom microphone, the system automatically compensates for differences in speaker size, level and distance, and equalizes response.

Reflex Optimizer

By using the phase control technology this adjusts the shift, and improves the localization of the sound image by aligning the frequencies with those of the floor speakers.
