11.2 Channel Network AV Controller - Onkyo PR-RZ5100
The Onkyo PR-RZ5100 features the latest surround sound decoders for DTS:X and Dolby Atmos. DTS:X is a whole new sound format created by sound specialists DTS. It adds a new height dimension to give your movies a listening experience like never before. It has been said by many that Dolby Atmos is quite possibly the biggest breakthrough in sound technology since the surround sound idea was conceived. Dolby Atmos is sometimes referred to as 3D for your ears. When you experience it you will feel like the roof of your listening room has been removed. Either of these fantastic technologies can easily be integrated into an existing surround sound setup to give you the best home cinema experience possible.

The design of the front panel is a huge step forward for Onkyo, rather than the purposeful looks of previous models such as the TX-NR 1030 , attention has been afforded to all aspects including the feet.
