Powerful, THX certified sound meets ultimate streaming versatility, with the Onkyo TXNR696 – it’s a multi-tasking marvel.

The highest standards in cinema sound - Certified by THX

This top quality AV receiver is just guaranteed to sound great by Onkyo, it’s certified by THX, too. 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 select few 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
Dolby Atmos uses ceiling or upwards firing speakers to produce a multi-dimensional, immersive sound that's a match for the finest cinemas. DTS:X literally pushes the boundaries of what you can expect from home cinema. It renders images in three dimensions that conventional processing can't match. DTS Neural:X upmixer supports Dolby formats, giving you DTS surround whatever the format.

Extra height, without the speakers - Dolby Atmos Height Virtualization and DTS Virtual:X*
It's not always possible to accommodate Atmos height speakers, which is when Dolby Atmos Height Virtualization comes 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 the impression of height and immersive sound. *Both functions available with future firmware update.

Support for Dolby Vision, HDR10 and HLG
Ideal for pairing with your quality video sources, the TXNR696 is compatible with an extensive range of formats. It supports HDR10, Dolby Vision, HLG and HDCP 2.2, which means you can play UHD Blu-ray discs and stream UltraHD video in the highest quality. It's also equipped with 4K upscaling, giving you the most detailed picture on your 4K TV from all sources. The HDMI sockets allow 4K pass-through, for hassle free switching and viewing without the receiver needing to be on.

Stream it your way, with Apple AirPlay 2 and ‘Works with SONOS’
Much more than just an AV receiver, the TXNR696 is also a comprehensive music streamer. Apple AirPlay 2 is now standard as is ‘Works with SONOS’. Integrated Amazon Music, Spotify (Premium account required for full features), TIDAL and Deezer are all standard. There’s also Chromecast, FlareConnect and DTS Play-Fi plus TuneIn for Internet radio and Bluetooth music streaming.

Works with Apple AirPlay 2
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
Link up to a SONOS Connect and the TXNR696 becomes integrated into your SONOS system. 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 selects the correct input – automatically.

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 multi-room
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 multi-room 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.

Comprehensive HDMI interface with twin outputs
Featuring six HDMI inputs at the back, plus a further front-mounted socket, the TXNR696 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.

The hub of your system – with space for all, including your turntable
When it comes to connecting all your music and AV sources, this Onkyo has everything covered – right down to your turntable. 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 USB (rear) for media playback.

Upgrade your entire music and movie experience, with the Onkyo TXNR696.
