Onkyo TX-NR696 M3 (Black)
‘Best-in-class’ audio - Certified by THX
The Onkyo TX-NR696 M3’s cinematic sound is tested and approved by THX to perform to the highest standards. THX are a Californian company founded by George Lucas of Star Wars fame. To gain THX approval, products are bench tested to a rigorous level, covering every aspect of audio performance. Only a handful of products gain the THX certification, making it a true badge of honour for any home cinema product.
Dolby Atmos, DTS:X and DTS Neural:X for cinematic sound
Continuing the ‘cinema at home’ theme, this Onkyo AVR is compatible with both Dolby Atmos and DTS:X. Both formats use ceiling or upward firing speakers to deliver an immersive, multi-dimensional sound. Dolby Atmos and DTS:X make an overhead aircraft sound frighteningly realistic or a tropical storm a drenching experience. DTS Neural:X upmixes non-DTS:X signals, giving you a similarly enveloping sound with other sources.
Get the Atmos or DTS:X effect, without the extra speakers
It's not always possible to accommodate Atmos or DTS:X height speakers, which is when Dolby Atmos Height Virtualization and DTS Virtual:X come in handy. Play any Dolby format and enjoy a more immersive sound with virtual height enhancement – using your existing speakers. DTS Virtual:X also creates a more enveloping sound from any DTS codec. Compatible with 2, 5.1 or 7.1 speaker configurations, DTS Virtual:X gives a greater impression of height and immersive sound.
Vast range of streaming potential
Much more than just an AV receiver, the TX-NR696 M3 is also a fully comprehensive music streamer. From Apple AirPlay 2 to Chromecast and taking in ‘Works with Sonos’, this Onkyo AVR has you covered. Integrated Amazon Music, Spotify (Premium account required for full features), TIDAL and Deezer are all standard. There’s even FlareConnect and DTS Play-Fi plus TuneIn for Internet radio and Bluetooth music streaming.
Apple AirPlay 2

Works with Sonos
’Works with Sonos’ certification means that this Onkyo seamlessly integrates with your existing Sonos system. Once connected to a compatible Sonos product, you can group the receiver with other Sonos devices or use it independently. Working with Sonos means as soon as you start playing music from your Sonos app, the Onkyo switches on and automatically selects the correct input.
