Onkyo TX-NR6100 7.2 Channel THX Certified Network A/V Receiver
Massive THX® sound and filmlike 8K resolution
Building key noise-reduction refinements into THX® Certified Select high-current amplification, the Onkyo TX-NR6100 sets the bar for reference sound while bringing 8K/60p and HDR10+ video to your compatible display over HDMI®. Enjoy Dolby Atmos® and DTS:X® soundtracks through your height-enabled surround system or use upmixing and virtualization solutions from DTS® and Dolby® to create a 3D sound-field from any layout. Cue and control music around your home with voice assistants Hey Google or Alexa, and connect a second display via HDMI Sub/Zone 2 output. Chromecast built-in, AirPlay 2, DTS Play-Fi®, and Works with Sonos cover every multi-room situation, and if you connect passive loudspeakers, you can switch between a 7.2/5.2.2-ch and 5.2-ch + Zone 2 layout at the touch of a button thanks to dedicated Zone 2 speaker terminals. Features such as a quality MM phono equalizer and bi-directional Bluetooth® wireless technology make this value proposition even more persuasive.
THX® Certified Select theater-reference sound
THX Certified Select guarantees the same reference volume and sound quality of a commercial theater in rooms where the screen-to-seat distance is about 12 ft. (3.5 m). THX® certified receivers must pass 2,000 bench-tests in 75 categories.
Welcome to the 8K Ultra HD experience
Onkyo TX-NR6100 features defined in HDMI® 2.1 specification enable 8K/60p video passthrough to your compatible display. As well as HDR10 and HLG, HDR10+ and Dolby Vision formats optimize brightness, contrast, and color scene-by-scene or frame-by-frame. All HDMI terminals support HDCP 2.3, while eARC on Main Out passes encoded multichannel audio (including Dolby Atmos® or DTS:X®) from your compatible TV’s tuner, video streaming apps, or connected media players to the AVR for amplification. QMS (Quick Media Switching) for movies and video eliminates the delay that can result in a blank screen before content is displayed. Note: Features defined in HDMI 2.1 specification, HDR10+, and passthrough capabilities described are supported on HDMI inputs 1–3, Main Out, and Sub/Zone 2 Out in Sub Mode output.
New enhancements for gamers
Transform your playtime with 3D surround-sound and gain the winning edge with new gamer-friendly features defined in HDMI 2.1. VRR (Variable Refresh Rate) eliminates lag, stutter, and frame-tearing for fluid gameplay. ALLM (Auto Low Latency Mode) optimizes latency from source to screen while QFT (Quick Frame Transport) limits lag for a smoother experience.
SMART AV Receiver multi-room audio streaming
SMART Onkyo TX-NR6100 AV Receiver shares audio around your home. It includes Amazon Music HD* , Pandora®, Spotify®, TIDAL, Deezer, and TuneIn, and works with Hey Google or Alexa. Share entertainment via Works with Sonos, AirPlay 2, DTS Play-Fi®, and Chromecast built-in. Amazon Music HD is supported via DTS Play-Fi.
Works with Sonos
Expand your Sonos Home Sound System by pairing this AVR to a Sonos Connect or Port. The receiver ties into the Sonos ecosystem, waking, changing inputs, and playing at the desired volume on command from the Sonos app. Sonos Connect and Port sold separately. Sonos app available free for iPhone and iPad from the App Store, and for Android devices on Google Play Store.
Chromecast built-in works with Hey Google
Stream music from your smartphone, laptop, or PC to the receiver via Chromecast built-in and control playback from Chromecast-enabled apps from iPhone, iPad, Android phone or tablet, Mac or Windows® PC, or Chromebook. Cue, play, and control audio just by using your voice.
Works with Alexa
Alexa lets you use your voice to control the A/V receiver by speaking commands through an Alexa built-in device. Whether you want to listen to music, radio stations, or podcasts, all you have to do is ask. It also supports multi-room music played on multiple devices. Multi-room music may require a firmware update.
Dolby Atmos and DTS:X – celebrate a new world of sound
Onkyo TX-NR6100 Dolby Atmos and DTS:X translate 3D soundtracks from the studio mixing desk to your living room. Sounds are no longer tied to specific channels, and are free to move around and above your audience, placing them at the heart of the action.
Enjoy legacy formats with 3D sound
Dolby Atmos Height Virtualizer and DTS Virtual:X deliver 3D sound through any listener-level speaker layout. The technologies can work independently or with Dolby Surround® or DTS® Neural:X upmixers to create a 3D sound-field with any audio signal (excluding Dolby Atmos, DTS:X, and DTS® Express).
5 GHz/2.4 GHz dual-band Wi-Fi® supports the 802.11ac standard*
A powerful quad-core SoC (System on a Chip) performs multiple processing tasks at once. It evolves network functions and supports the 802.11ac (2×2 MIMO) standard for stable multi- room audio streaming. * Note: some countries or regions have regulations that affect wireless signal strength and the use of Wi-Fi channels.
Clearer dialog at the touch of a button
Vocal Enhancer solves the problem of inaudible dialog in movies and TV programs by using DSP algorithms to elevate vocal frequencies in the soundtrack. The effect level can be raised or lowered using keys on the remote control.
AccuEQ room acoustic calibration
Onkyo TX-NR6100 detects speaker size, crossover frequency, and distance from the listening position and sets appropriate sound-pressure levels. Sets crossover and EQs all speakers including the subwoofers. AccuReflex optimizes 3D sound through Dolby Atmos-enabled speakers by correcting phase differences in directional and non-directional sound-paths. The result is a clear and cohesive sound-field.
Bi-directional Bluetooth® wireless technology
This Onkyo TX-NR6100 AVR can send and receive audio via Bluetooth wireless technology. Stream from your device to the receiver using SBC or AAC codecs, or transmit audio playing through the AVR to compatible wireless headphones using SBC, aptX, or aptX HD codecs including 24-bit audio over aptX HD. Note: supports MAIN Zone source transmission (excludes Chromecast built-in and Works with Alexa). Lossless 24-bit audio requires headphones supporting aptX HD.
Zone 2 outputs for powered multi-room audio
Deploy a 7.2-ch or 5.2.2-ch layout in MAIN with Zone 2 speakers connected via dedicated Zone 2 speaker posts and switch to 5.2-ch + Zone 2 playback anytime. Sync one source or play two sources (including analog, HDMI, SPDIF, and NET) in both rooms simultaneously. Note: HDMI and SPDIF supports 2-ch PCM only. HDMI available on inputs 1–3. Output from Zone 2 line-out is enabled.
Multi-function Zone 2 or Zone B line-out
Analog RCA line-out terminal is served by a Zone 2 D/A converter and supports two Zone audio modes: Zone 2 supports active speaker or hi-fi system connection. Sync a source in MAIN and Zone 2, or play two unique sources simultaneously. Zone B suits wireless headphone docks. Enjoy MAIN Zone audio source through your wireless headphones.
