AccuEQ conducts two measurements- one to set the level, distance and crossover for ALL speakers, including the subwoofer. Choose to include or bypass EQ measurement for front left and right speakers, and choose to automatically or manually set the EQ. Further, you can save your own manual EQ settings into three available presets.
AccuReflex technology aligns the phase of up-firing "height" speakers with the sound coming directly from your other speakers. Any delay is resolved so that everything arrives at your ears at the same time. The result is cohesive reproduction of object-based soundtracks.
Powered Zone 2 speaker outputs let you send amplified audio sources, including network, S/PDIF, and analog, to a pair of speakers in another room. Line outputs can connect home theater sources to a separate hi-fi system. Manage playback distribution with Onkyo Controller.
With speakers and media players connected, plug in the
AccuEQ mic and let the receiver GUI guide you through
setup, from speaker calibration (including AccuReflex phase
correction for Dolby Atmos-enabled speakers) through to
network connection. The refined interface makes control
simple and enjoyable.
Dual-band 5 GHz/2.4 GHz Wi-Fi assures stable connectivity so you can enjoy smooth streaming over AirPlay, the Spotify app, and the local network. Bluetooth technology also provides simple wireless streaming from music applications.
Amazon Music, TIDAL, Deezer, Pandora®, and TuneIn are baked into the GUI, making it easy to select from music and radio programs with Onkyo Controller.

No matter what you're listening to, it will sound powerfully full, clean and clear. A premium-quality AK4458 digital-to-analog converter from Asahi Kasei implements unique low-distortion filtering technologies for clear sound, and unlocks the full potential of any audio format, including compressed, lossless, and hi-res audio (MP3, WMA, FLAC, WAV, OggVorbis, AAC, Apple Lossless, DSD 5.6 MHz, LPCM, and Dolby TrueHD).
Onkyo developed Vector Linear Shaping Circuitry (VLSC) to reassemble the audio signal to its original form following processing. Unlike conventional filters, VLSC removes pulse noise generated in D/A conversion, allowing the sound wave to be reproduced with extremely high fidelity for a smooth analog signal.
High-current power is proven by an ability to drive four-ohm
speaker loads, which test the toughest multichannel amplifier.
Heaps of muscle means superior control for fast dynamics
and high energy. Non-phase-shift amps present a detailed and
cohesive audio image, while VLSC™ eliminates high-frequency
distortion for ultimate clarity of sound.
Onkyo's dynamic audio amplification delivers massive power at 210 W/Ch (6 Ohms, 1 kHz, 10% THD, 1 Channel Driven)/ 100 W/Ch (8 Ohms, 20 Hz-20 kHz, 0.08% THD, 2 Channels Driven).
