Onkyo poised to deliver Dolby Atmos sound this month

September 3, 2014

UPPER SADDLE RIVER, NJ. A firmware update enabling Dolby Atmos® sound on the Onkyo TX-NR636, TX-NR737, and TX-NR838 network A/V receivers will be released on September 29, the home entertainment specialists confirmed today.

The free firmware download enabling Dolby Atmos on these mid-range products precedes the release of Onkyo’s high-end TX-NR1030 and TX-NR3030 network A/V receivers, and the flagship PR-SC5530 Network A/V Controller, all of which will ship from mid-October with support for Dolby Atmos built in at the factory. The HT-S7700 Network Home Theater System will also ship with Dolby Atmos built-in beginning at the end of September.

Dolby Atmos delivers captivating multidimensional sound that places and moves specific effects anywhere in the room (including overhead) bringing movie entertainment to life all around the audience. Since its introduction in cinemas in 2012, Dolby Atmos has been embraced by all the major Hollywood studios, seven Academy Award®-winning directors, and 16 Academy Award-winning sound mixers.

All of Onkyo’s 2014-model A/V receivers and controllers from the mid-range and up feature Dual 32-bit Processing Engines to decode, scale, and calibrate Dolby Atmos for any home theater configuration.

With Dolby Atmos joining THX®-certified theater-reference audio performance, built-in Wi-Fi® for Hi-Res PCM/DSD, and HDMI 2.0 supporting 4K/60 Hz video, these Onkyo components have power to elevate next-generation media to transcendental heights.
