Onkyo TX-NR696

A surround sound stalwart

Onkyo home theater receivers have a long-standing track record of performance and value. The TX-NR696 combines a ton of fun features with state-of-the-art processing, all while retaining an attractive price tag. At 100 watts per channel, it's got enough power for just about any floor-standing or bookshelf speakers you want to use in your home theater system.


The TX-NR696 is packed with wireless music streaming options that make listening to your favorite tunes a breeze.

Immerse yourself in sound

This receiver can power up to seven speakers at the same time, giving you flexibility for different home theater and wired multi-room music configurations. Use all seven channels in a 5.1.2 Dolby Atmos® or DTS:X™ system, or go with a more modest surround sound setup and repurpose the extra channels for music in another zone.

Plenty of wireless music choices

The TX-NR696 gives you all kinds of options for wireless listening, including the popular Apple® AirPlay® 2 and Chromecast built-in streaming platforms. There's built-in support for streaming Spotify® and Pandora® over your Wi-Fi network, and you can play tunes via Bluetooth.

Works with Sonos

If you're a Sonos lover, the 'NR696 easily integrates into your wireless multi-room music system. Just add a Sonos Port, and you can send any music or audio source from the Sonos app to the receiver. The 'NR696 will even automatically turn on and switch to the correct input when you fire it up in the Sonos app.
