Dolby Atmos is a new audio format that uses object-oriented mixing techniques to layer individual sound elements over a channel-based audio bed, putting sound into motion all around you, even overhead. Content creators mix soundtracks in a 3D space, seamlessly moving the sound above and around the audience. This receiver has Dolby Atmos built-in. Just install a pair of in-ceiling speakers or purchase a pair of SKH-410 Dolby Atmos-enabled speaker modules.
The HT-S9700THX's A/V receiver has the latest HDMI 2.0 connections that support 4K/60Hz and 21:9 format, and also the latest Digital Rights Management (DRM) copy protection compatibility: HDCP 2.2. which has been adopted for future premium 4K releases by Hollywood studios, satellite broadcasters, and internet video streaming services. Even if you're not planning on upgrading your current TV right away, it's good to know your Onkyo receiver is ready for the future of gaming and video entertainment..
The HT-S9700's A/V receiver has Wi-Fi and Bluetooth technologies built in. No wires, no dongles, no mess. Complete the one-time Wi-Fi setup, download our free control app for iOs and Android devices, and you've got a full range of remote control and audio streaming features in the palm of your hand. You can also pair your Bluetooth-capable device and stream directly to your home theater.

Whether you're just beginning one or adding to you're an existing collection, the dedicated phono input lets you enjoy your classic vinyl in all its analog glory. Onkyo's commitment to Hi-Res audio playback and supports gapless playback and the ability to play DSD, Double DSD, FLAC and ALAC along with other Hi-Res formats.

Spotify Connect also allows users to make calls or use other apps without interrupting playback, since the technology is built into the receiver.
WRAT (Wide Range Amplifier Technology) is all about current. Receivers need a lot of current not only to handle sudden explosive actions scenes but also to reproduce the detail of quiet passages. We use a massive high-power transformer to drive discrete amps that help eliminate distortion and preserve the energy of music and movies. Delivering 115 watts per channel, the HT-S9700THX's A/V receiver packs a colossal punch for movies but still retains the pure musicality you need for two-channel playback. Also, Phase-Matching Bass Enhancement optimizes low frequencies while preserving mid-range clarity. It counters phase shifting by synchronizing the timing of different frequencies. The result is deep, well-defined bass that won't blur vocals or strings.
The included speaker system is serious about immersive surround sound. Solid MDF cabinets feature A-OMF diaphragms (layered polyethylene naphthalate and flexible cotton weave material to improve stiffness and heat resistance) for vivid and natural mid-range performance.Where other brands skimp on the surrounds, we include proper two-way speakers with 5 1/8" (13 cm) A-OMF drivers to ensure you get maximum impact from all directions. Rounding out the package is a high-capacity acoustic-suspension subwoofer fitted with a 12" (30 cm) front-firing cone for 125 Watts of wall-shaking bass. Beautifully finished and including detachable cloth grilles for protection, this THX-certified speaker system is the true heavyweight of the HTiB world.
Video from older gaming consoles and DVD players looks clean and sharp, giving your old favorites a new lease on life. Qdeo™ technology from Marvell automatically upscales low-res video to liquid-smooth 1080p (for HDTV) and 4K (3840 x 2160 pixels) with a compatible UHD display.
AccuEQ easily calibrates your system to suit your home theater space. Just connect your speakers, plug-in the included mic and the system automatically measures aspects such as speaker distance, type, crossover, and output, while taking into account any sonic reflections from your walls and floor. The system by-passes your front left and right speakers to preserve the purity of those channels and optimizes the frequency response of the remaining speakers for amazingly balanced surround sound regardless of room shape or furnishings.
Note: Chromecast built-in™ and FireConnect™ are operable on these receivers via firmware updates.
FireConnect™ is a technology developed by Blackfire Research. Multi-room audio enabled by this technology requires an optional Onkyo wireless speaker.
Onkyo cannot guarantee the compatibility of its A/V receivers with other devices featuring FireConnect™. Please consult the Onkyo website for further announcements regarding these technologies.
