Onkyo TX-SR3100, the entry-level Dolby Atmos and Ultra HD 8K home cinema receiver for less than 500 euros

Onkyo has just announced the release of its new TX-SR3100 amplifier. Designed by engineers at the Osaka R&D Center, this 5.2-channel model promises to enhance the home entertainment experience, whether it’s movies, music or video games. Announced at a very affordable price, it offers Dolby Atmos, DTS:X compatibility and supports video signals up to Ultra HD 8K.

In order to provide an accessible offering to as wide an audience as possible, Onkyo is marketing the new TX-SR3100 home cinema amplifier. This entry-level model stands out for its Dolby Atmos and DTS:X audio decoding capabilities which can also provide virtual broadcasting in DTS Virtual:X mode. Furthermore, even with stereo sources, thee Dolby Atmos Height Virtualizer enhances the experience by creating an immersive sound effect, regardless of the speaker configuration in the room. This technology aims to do without additional Atmos speakers, which are often complex to install and which increase the budget of the home cinema configuration.

In addition, we can count on the presence of Onkyo’s exclusive technology, AccuEQ, which ensures optimal acoustic configuration of the speakers. It analyzes several essential parameters, such as the size and placement of the speakers, as well as the acoustic characteristics of the room. By compensating for possible acoustic defects, this technology precisely balances the sound, providing audio quality adapted to each environment.
As for the Vocal Enhancer technology embedded within the TX-SR3100 amplifier, it allows dialogue and voices to be accentuated. By adding a monaural center component to the front left and right speakers, this feature attempts to ensure dialogue is clear, regardless of sound level. Even during intense action scenes or quiet moments, the brand promises that every word is intelligible.
For music lovers, the “Music Optimizer DSP” mode restores compressed files, giving them a quality close to the original. This mode is particularly effective for WMA, AAC and MP3 formats, allowing you to regain the depth and richness of the soundtrack. Note the Bluetooth compatibility for wirelessly streaming music from mobile devices, for example.
