DTS:X™ firmware update announced for release August 31 2016


DTS:X™ is an object-based format that allows audio elements in movie and game soundtracks to be played through any channel, freeing sound to move naturally above and around the audience. The format is playable on DTS:X™-enabled AV receivers through any surround-sound speaker layout and works to maximum effect with the inclusion of height channels featured on a selection of newly released Onkyo AV receivers.


The AV receiver will automatically detect the firmware update and deliver prompts to be followed for installation. The firmware update is supported on the following Onkyo products:

2016 models

  • ·         TX-NR555
  • ·         TX-NR656
  • ·         HT-R695
  • ·         TX-RZ710

2015 models

  • ·         TX-NR646
  • ·         TX-NR747
  • ·         TX-RZ900

Following the firmware update, these Onkyo home theatre products support the most popular object-based, high-resolution, and lossless multichannel surround sound formats including Dolby Atmos®, DTS-HD Master Audio™, and Dolby® TrueHD.
