Onkyo’s 5.2-channel TX-SR393 AV receiver includes Dolby Atmos and DTS:X bringing extraordinary flexibility to simplify next-generation home entertainment.

Dolby Atmos and DTS:X soundtracks are mixed in a 3D domain. Metadata transposes sound origins within the scene to the corresponding positions in the listening space, tracking effects vertically, horizontally and placing audio all around the audience.

Dolby Atmos and DTS:X formats deliver audio at its highest quality, adapting to a range of speaker configurations.

TX-SR393 offers a room-friendly 3.2.2-channel solution to native Dolby Atmos and DTS:X. Dolby Surround® and DTS® Neural:X up-mixing technologies, remap legacy soundtracks for playback through any speaker layout, including those with height channels, for more spatially realistic audio.

When playing any Dolby® format, engaging Dolby Atmos Height Virtualiser enables a more immersive listening experience, creating a virtual surround and height effect. DTS Virtual:X™ creates a 3D sound-field with DSP-based algorithms, wrapping the user in audio from all directions through any speaker layout without surround or height speaker connection.  

While 3D sound virtualisation creates a spatial sound-field from as few as 2.1 channels, the TX-SR393 offers real 5.2-channel or 3.2.2-channel surround-sound.

Several new high-value features debut on this model. DSP-based Vocal Enhancer allows users to raise or lower vocal frequencies using the remote controller or front-panel VOCAL buttons, clarifying movie or TV dialog audibility in seconds. Zone B line-out passes audio signals including HDMI and digital audio to a component with an analogue RCA audio input, for example a nearby hi-fi system or wireless headphone dock. Clearly numbered and illustrated diagrams on the rear panel simplifies initial connection.

For those seeking an affordable, high-quality home theatre with latest technology, the Onkyo TX-SR393 AV receiver provides realistic surround sound without investing in additional speakers.
