Dynamic Audio Amplification: The TX-NR5100 AV receiver features Onkyo's Dynamic Audio Amplification with a 7-channel amplifier rated at 80 watts (into 8-ohms, at 20Hz-20kHz, with 0.08%, driving 2 channels). Onkyo's Dynamic Audio Amplification technology incorporates a Hi-Current, non-phase shift amplifier design with discrete output stage circuitry and a H.C.P.S (High Current Power Supply) capable of driving 4 to 16-ohm speakers with dynamic control, while producing clear, detailed sound.
Amplifier Assignment: The 7-channel amplifier can be configured in a variety of ways to match your type of speaker setup.
AccuEQ Room Acoustic Calibration: AccuEQ streamlines the initial setup of your home theater setup and ensures the Onkyo AV receiver and speakers are properly calibrated for the best performance in your listening space. AccuEQ calculates speaker distance from the listening position, adjusts speaker sound pressure level, and sets the speaker crossover. The latter selects the correct point to roll off low-frequency sound to the subwoofer. The result is clear and balanced full-spectrum surround sound.
Note: You can choose to bypass the AccuEQ for your front speakers or all speakers, and manually set the distance, crossover, EQ, and level of each speaker.
Precision 24-Bit/192kHz DAC: The Onkyo TX-NR5100 employs 24-bit/192kHz digital-to-analog conversion for playback of 2ch Hi-Res audio (such as FLAC & DSD), as well a multichannel 3D audio (such as Dolby Atmos & DTS:X).
Compatible Digital Audio Formats: The AV receiver supports the following stereo & multichannel digital audio formats through its HDMI jacks and optical/coax digital inputs.
Dolby Atmos & DTS:X: Dolby Atmos and DTS:X allow engineers to map sound anywhere in 3D space with effects moving from speaker to speaker all around the room and wrapping your audience in the latest films and games. You can also enjoy your 3D speaker layout with classic titles thanks to Dolby Surround and DTS Neural:X which find overhead cues in legacy soundtracks and upmix for awesome spatial realism. In addition, when playing any Dolby or DTS audio soundtrack, engaging Dolby Atmos Height Virtualizer or DTS Virtual:X enables a more immersive listening experience, creating a virtual surround and height effect from traditional speaker layouts without employing additional surround or height speakers.
Onkyo Original DSP Modes: Onkyo's Original DSP Modes, combined with Dolby Digital & DTS processing, produce more realistic, powerful sound effects for your movie and music sound tracks based on the type of content and your home theater setup. You can choose from the following:
Direct & Pure Audio Mode: The Direct listening mode can be selected for all input signals. In this mode, processing that affects sound quality is shut down, and sound closer to the original is reproduced. The Pure Audio mode takes it one step further by also turning off the display to provide even purer sound. The sound is reproduced with the soundfield based on the number of channels in the input signal. For example, a 2ch signal is output only from the front speakers. Note that other sound adjustments are not available when this mode is selected.
Audio Enhancements: The Onkyo TX-NR5100 receiver provides various audio enhancements to deliver a high-quality listening experience every time.
Dialog Improvements: The receiver offers a variety of dialog enhancements that make it easier to hear dialog and vocal when listening to movie and music soundtracks. The Vocal mode emphasizes movie dialog and music vocals, so you can hear them more easily amongst the movie effects and musical instruments. The Vocal mode can be set from 1 (low) to 5 (high). Dialog Control allows you to boost the dialog in a DTS:X soundtrack to make dialog more intelligible in noisy environments. Center Spread expands the center channel signal to left and right front speakers to create a wider frontal audio image for the listener, when in Dolby Surround mode.
Bass Management: The Onkyo AV receiver offers Double Bass and Tone Control to get the most bass impact out of your system. You can activate the Double Bass function in order to boost bass output even more by feeding bass sounds to the front left/right speakers, center-channel, and powered subwoofer. In addition, you can independently adjust the Bass (20Hz) and Treble (20kHz) of the receiver's Front L/R channels from -10 to +10 dB.
Volume & Level Setup: The Onkyo AV receiver provides the following volume & level settings.
eARC (Enhanced Audio Return Channel): This feature of the AV receiver's main HDMI monitor output allows audio to be sent from your compatible TV to the receiver through the same HDMI cable already being used to send audio and video to your TV. This eliminates the need for extra cables connected to your television. eARC (Enhanced Audio Return Channel) will support uncompressed audio formats like Dolby TrueHD, Dolby Atmos, DTS:X, & DTS HD Master Audio - where as the previous ARC (Audio Return Channel) was limited to only Dolby Digital, Dolby Digital Plus, DTS, DTS HD, and PCM.
Note: Supported content will be dependent on whether your TV features a HDMI eARC or ARC jack.
Analog Audio Outputs: The Onkyo TX-NR5100 is outfitted with the following analog audio outputs.
AM/FM Tuner: With the built-in tuner you can enjoy AM and FM radio stations. You can store your favorite stations as presets for quick selection. You can store a combination of up to 40 of your favorite FM/AM radio stations as presets.
HDMI 2.1: Featuring four HDMI inputs and two HDMI outputs, the Onkyo TX-NR5100 incorporates an advanced video section that features some of the latest HDMI 2.1 specifications; including support for 4K/120 and 8K/60Hz video pass-through (up to 24Gbps), HDCP 2.3 compatibility, BT.2020 Wide Color Gamut, and 4:4:4 Pure Color sub-sampling.
HDMI Video Upscaling (up to 4K): The Onkyo AV receiver's video processor provides upscaling of 1080p HDMI video sources to 4K/60Hz Ultra HD (3840x2160 pixels). HDMI video upscaling is only supported by the main HDMI output (not the sub HDMI out).
Dual HDMI Outputs: The two HDMI outputs are parallel, so the same HDMI input audio/video signal is output through both and can be used simultaneously. The second HDMI output does not offer HDMI upscaling. Both HDMI outputs support up to 4K/120Hz or 8K/60Hz (up to 24Gbps).
HDR (High Dynamic Range): HDR (High Dynamic Range) video provides enhanced picture quality by simultaneously enabling greater detail for both the dark and bright parts of an image. HDR reproduces a greater dynamic range of luminosity or brightness levels, creating greater contrast. This increased contrast reveals the subtle nuances of the image, from detailed blacks and shadows to the brightest whites and colors, plus greater depth. This receiver supports two HDR formats - HDR10, HDR10+ Hybrid Log-Gamma (HLG), & Dolby Vision.
Enhanced Gaming: HDMI 2.1 enhancements for gamers include 4K/120Hz HDR pass-through that enables ultra-fast motion; VRR (Variable Refresh Rate) which eliminates lag, stutter, and frame-tearing for fluid gameplay; ALLM (Auto Low Latency Mode) to optimize latency from source to screen; plus QFT (Quick Frame Transport) which limits lag for a smoother video gaming experience.
Other HDMI Features: The TX-NR5100 AV receiver's HDMI connectivity also offers 3D video pass-through, Deep Color & x.v. Color support, as well as an auto LipSync function.
HDMI Through: When enabling the HDMI Through function, regardless of whether the AV receiver is "On" or in "Standby", both audio/video streams from an HDMI input will be output to your television, via the receiver HDMI monitor output. You can select between three HDMI Through modes.
Video Select: It is possible to play audio and video from different sources simultaneously. For example, you can play audio via Bluetooth and video from your Blu-ray player. This function is only effective when an input with audio only (Network, Bluetooth, or Tuner) has been selected initially.

5.0.2-Channel Klipsch Reference III Speaker Package: This system package includes speakers from Klipsch's Reference III series to create a 5.0.2 channel home theater setup. The package includes a pair of R-600F floorstanding loudspeakers for the front channels, a R-30C center speaker for the center channel, a pair of R-50M bookshelf speakers for the rear channels, and a pair of R-40SA Dolby Atmos speaker modules for the height channels. Klipsch's new Reference III series features updated Tractrix Horn technology, a new Spun-Copper TCP (Thermoformed Crystal Polymer) woofer design, and Tractrix geometry port technology to create a wide soundstage that is smooth, controlled and accurate.
Note: This speaker system does not included a powered subwoofer. A powered subwoofer must be purchased separately.
1" Horn-Loaded Tweeter: Each speaker in this Reference III series package features Klipsch's proprietary Tractrix Horn technology mated with a 1" LTS aluminum tweeter, for impressive high-frequency response and greater extension, enhanced imaging and powerful dynamics.
Spun-Copper TCP Woofers: The Klipsch Reference III series speakers house Spun-Copper TCP (Thermoformed Crystalline Polymer) woofers for deep, smooth, and accurate bass. TCP woofers have steeper angling of the cones for a smoother response and improved accuracy and transparency. The additional ribbing increases the overall rigidity for less cone breakup at higher frequencies. The R-600F floorstanding speaker is equipped with two 6.5" TCP cone woofers, while the R-30C center speaker featurs four 3.5" TCP cone woofers. The R-50M bookshelf rear speaker houses a single 5.25" TCP cone woofer, while the R-40SA Dolby Atmos speaker module features one 4" TCP cone woofer.
MDF Cabinet: The Klipsch Reference III series speakers feature a MDF cabinet with a scratch-resistant, textured wood grain vinyl that seamlessly integrates into almost any room or decor. The enclosure's reinforced MDF construction reduces cabinet vibration for less audible coloration and improved sonic accuracy. The MDF enclosure also features a satin painted baffle with a scratch resistant design for an elegant look without the grille.
Note: The Klipsch Reference III series R-40SA Dolby Atmos speaker modules utilize an acoustic suspension (sealed) cabinet - not ported.
Dolby Atmos Enabled: The included RP-40SA Dolby Atmos speaker module enhances your home theater system with overhead sound effects from Dolby Atmos and other movie soundtracks. By leveraging Klipsch proprietary horn-loaded controlled directivity technology, the RP-40SA II bounces sound off the ceiling to create an astonishing, immersive listening experience. Dolby Atmos delivers captivating, object-based sound that places and moves audio anywhere in the room to bring entertainment alive all around the audience. With Dolby Atmos sound comes alive from all directions, including overhead, to fill a home theater with astonishing clarity, power, detail and depth.
Binding Post Terminals: The Klipsch Reference III series speakers are outfitted with binding posts to ensure a secure connection to many types of cable and connectors. The binding post terminals will accept banana plugs (single only), pin-connectors, spade-lugs and bare wire (up to 12AWG). The Klipsch R-600F is outfitted with two sets of binding posts terminals, plus a proprietary Dolby Atmos speaker module connector. One set of the binding post terminals allow you amplify the loudspeaker's drivers, while the second set of terminals allow for connection to your AV receiver's Height channel when using the floorstanding speaker's banana plug inserts to connect the included R-40SA Dolby Atmos speaker modules.
Note: The two sets of binding post terminals on the R-600F floorstanding speakers do not support bi-wiring or bi-amplification of the speaker.
Placement & Mounting Options: For optimum performance as front speakers in a home theater application, Klipsch suggests placing the R-600F floorstanding loudspeakers 6' to 15' apart. They may also be toed-in slightly for better stereo imaging. The listening position should be about 1 to 1.5x the distance separating the speakers. The RP-40SA II Dolby Atmos speaker modules should rest directly on top of the R-600F floorstanding speakers. The R-30C center-channel is designed to place dialog and primary sounds so that they appear to come from the TV or projector screen. The speaker should therefore be centered and placed as close to the screen as possible, preferably directly on top of or below the screen. When used as rear surround speakers in a home theater setup, the R-50M bookshelf speakers should be placed approximately 2' above the listening position. Typically this will be approximately 5' to 7' above the floor. The rear surround speakers should be placed on the walls directly adjacent to the listening position. Another option would be on the wall behind the listening position.
Optional Powered Sub: For bigger & deeper bass response, pair the Klipsch Reference III series loudspeaker with one of Klipsch's powered subwoofers (sold separately - click on Accessories Tab).
