Welcome to 8K Ultra HD with the latest HDMI®
Features defined in HDMI 2.1 enable 8K/60p passthrough to a compatible display. As well as HDR10 and HLG, HDR10+ and Dolby Vision™ formats optimize brightness, contrast, and color frame-by-frame. All HDMI terminals support HDCP 2.3, while eARC on Main Out passes multichannel audio (including Dolby Atmos® or DTS:X) from TV to AVR for decoding and amplification. QMS (Quick Media Switching) reduces screen blanking when switching HDMI sources.
Note: features defined in HDMI 2.1 supported on HDMI inputs 1–6, Main Out, and Sub/Zone 2 Out in Sub Mode output.
Experience lag-free gameplay
Transform virtual worlds with 3D sound and get a competitive edge with all-new HDMI features for gamers. VRR (Variable Refresh Rate), ALLM (Auto Low Latency Mode), and QFT (Quick Frame Transport) eliminate lag, stutter, and frame-tearing for more fluid and responsive gameplay.
Note: features supported on HDMI inputs 1–6, Main Out, and Sub/Zone 2 Out in Sub Mode output.
Dolby Atmos and DTS:X
Dolby Atmos and DTS:X formats map sound origins as they are perceived in real life and transpose them around your audience for a captivating entertainment experience. Enjoy 3D sound through a 5.2.4 or 7.2.2 layout or connect a stereo amp and expand to 7.2.4 channels. Rediscover classic titles through your height-enabled system with Dolby Surround® and DTS® Neural:X. These technologies analyze legacy soundtracks for spatial cues and upmix for immersive 3D playback.
Dolby Atmos Height Virtualizer
Dolby Atmos Height Virtualizer enhances Dolby® formats for a more immersive experience. It creates virtual surround and height effects using a traditional speaker layout.
Exclusive refinements for clear soundy
HDMI board has short signal-paths and well-finished grounds that suppress noise. SoC board is isolated from audio circuitry, reducing interference. Reinforced power-supply line and refined power-amp grounds with copper bus bar reduce circuit noise for thick, clear, and detailed sound.

*Multi-room music may require a firmware update.
Connect speakers for powered multi-room sound
Powered Zone 2 and Zone 3 outputs connect passive speakers in two other rooms with a 5.2-ch speaker system in your main listening space. Together with MAIN, Zone 2 and Zone 3 DACs support D/A audio playback (including HDMI, SPDIF, and NET) in three rooms. You can sync the same track or play different songs in each room using Onkyo Controller to manage your entertainment.
Note: Zone 3 supports analog/NET only. Zone 2 HDMI audio available via inputs 1–3. HDMI and SPDIF support PCM only.
5 GHz/2.4 GHz Wi-Fi® supports 802.11ac standard
Isolated 1.8 GHz quad-core SoC performs multiple processing tasks at once. It evolves network functions and supports the 802.11ac (2x2 MIMO) standard for stable multi-room audio streaming.
Note: some countries or regions have regulations that affect wireless signal strength and the use of Wi-Fi channels.
Bidirectional Bluetooth® wireless technology
Send or receive audio via Bluetooth wireless technology. Stream from your laptop, digital audio player, or mobile to the receiver over SBC or AAC, or share what’s playing in the main zone* to a pair of wireless headphones using SBC, aptX™, or aptX HD codecs.
*Audio via Chromecast built-in and Works with Alexa excluded.
Convenient Zone 2 and Zone B pre-/line-out
RCA pre-/line-out has two modes: Zone 2 supports connection of active speakers or a hi-fi system, and can sync D/A audio in MAIN and Zone 2 or play a different source in each. Zone B plays MAIN audio through compatible wireless headphones via a connected headphone dock.
Note: Zone 2 mode supports HDMI audio via inputs 1–3. SPDIF and HDMI support PCM only. Zone B mode is line-level only and supports encoded or PCM signals (all inputs) in MAIN and Zone B.
Dirac Live® Room Correction
Dirac Live analyzes your audio system and listening environment by examining acoustic data measured with a setup mic. It corrects both the timing and amplitude aspects of sound coloration using a mixed-phase correction filter throughout the listening area, not just a particular zone. Correction is performed automatically using a proprietary app for smartphone or tablet*. Dirac Live improves staging, localization, clarity, voice intelligibility, and bass response.
*Mobile device and AVR must be connected to the same local network.
Flexibility for customized setups
Connect an external power amp or motorized projector screen via the AVR’s 12 V trigger output and power them up automatically with your AVR, with CEC performing the same task for media players over HDMI. An IR repeater input lets you conceal the AVR away from the screen, ideal for bespoke cinemas. Ethernet and RS-232 terminals integrate the AVR into your automation system, with the former supporting setup and web browser control via PC.
