A master of both home cinema and music streaming, the Onkyo TX-NR696 M3 is your one-stop shop for total entertainment.

‘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
Ideal for Apple users, AirPlay 2 takes this popular wireless streaming format and makes it better. Controllable by simply asking Siri or using your Apple device, AirPlay 2 lets you effortlessly stream music and podcasts around your home – and all in perfect sync.

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.

Chromecast with Google Assistant
Chromecast lets you stream music, podcasts and audio apps, including Google Play, at the touch of a button. Alternatively, use Google Assistant and this Onkyo AV receiver becomes part of your voice controlled smart home.

DTS Play-Fi for effortless streaming and multiroom
DTS Play-Fi is a premium, wireless control system that brings everything under one 'roof'. Download the free app and you'll not only have access to Internet radio but also popular music apps such as Spotify, Tidal, Deezer and Napster. As well as bringing all your streaming sources together, Play-Fi offers the potential for full multiroom music. Simply add other Play-Fi compatible sources and you'll quickly be able to build up a comprehensive music system around your home - all under the control of a single app.

FlareConnect for any music source in any room
Streaming music between rooms from any source, including records and CDs, is easy with FlareConnect. When used with compatible FlareConnect speakers, you can listen to your treasured vinyls and CDs in any room. Music selection, speaker grouping and playback control is all built-in to the Onkyo Controller App for effortless smartphone or tablet control.

HDMI interface with twin outputs
Featuring six HDMI inputs at the back, plus a further front-mounted socket, the TXNR696 M3 is equipped for the most comprehensive systems. Twin HDMI outlets include a second, Zone 2, for independent outputs. Zone 2 audio can also be outputted via active or passive outlets.

Connect it all; right down to your turntable
When it comes to connecting all your music and AV sources, this Onkyo has everything covered – including your turntable (with Moving Magnet cartridge). As well as the turntable input there are four line level ones – ideal for a CD player, music streamer and other music sources. There are also digital coaxial and optical inputs plus a rear USB for media playback.

Optimise all your home cinema and music sources from a single hub, with the Onkyo TX-NR696 M3.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Features and sound for a great price! I've had this AV receiver for nearly 3 years now so thought it was about time to write a review. I use it in in a 7:2 system. The main reason for buying this apart from it ticking the main format boxes, Atmos DTS X, is that you can run a line level output to another amplifier for stereo listening. For surround playback this also reduces the load on the Onkyo psu which is a bonus if you like to listen to your movies loud! It also has Tidal and Spotify support so it is possible to control music playback from their respective smartphone apps, It supported by Playfi and Onkyo controller apps. It has an AKM (AK4458) 384 kHz/32-bit DAC is THX certified and high current amplifier audio. You can pay more for just a DAC Highly recommended! L & R are Monitor Audio gold 100 4g , centre is a Monitor Audio gold C250 5g (4ohm speaker). dual mono outputs 2 x BK Monolith Subs

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Buyer beware I bought this Xmas 2019. It's now semi operative. HDR has gone (colours are crazy) as have two third if the HDMI ports. Wished I'd taken out the now free 6 year warranty as getting your receiver fixed by what is now Onkyo is impossible. Their own customer service has confirmed this. I'm up a creak without a paddle. Sound is not as good as older models. Lacks punch. Was very disappointed and regretted selling my old Onkyo.
Date published: 2023-05-27
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great replacement for my previous Onkyo. I had to replace my previous Onkyo Amplifier because it malfunctioned and they were unable to fix it. I had a look online and this was the best match as good or better than what I previously had. The sound is awesome and we are glad we bought it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product and service Bought this a few weeks ago and wow, it’s exceeded my expectations. With the 7.1 speakers and the projector, it’s perfect. The salesperson was fantastic and his knowledge was excellent.
