*Sold exclusively within the US only. No shipments allowed outside the US!


Dolby Atmos® and DTS:X Object-based Audio

DTS:X and Dolby Atmos® are not mere improvements to existing formats; they've revolutionized sound mixing. Free from the channel bed, sound comes from all directions, even above, with angled drivers bouncing effects off the ceiling and into the audience. No extra speakers or cables required: just authentic and immersive sound from all around.

Stream Anything with DTS Play-Fi®*

A free app for iOS and Android® devices, DTS Play-Fi technology collects network audio (including streaming services, internet radio, and network files) into one interface for casting to any compatible speaker. DTS Play-Fi technology supports multi-room distribution and can cast different  sources to different speakers simultaneously.

Network audio is at your finger tips and ready for streaming with Onkyo Controller app and selectable 5 GHz/2.4 GHz Wi-Fi® for connection stability. Apple device users can also mirror audio from a wide range of apps over AirPlay®, or just stream from your device using Bluetooth® wireless technology.

Play Music via Chromecast built-in, Wi-Fi®*, AirPlay®, and Bluetooth®

Chromecast built-in, AirPlay®, and dual-band 5 GHz/2.4 GHz Wi-Fi® are also included for seamless app-based music streaming, while Spotify® Connect lets subscribers stream direct from the Spotify® application. Bluetooth® connectivity completes a universal suite for wireless music streaming. Apple device users can also mirror audio from a wide range of apps over AirPlay®, or just stream from your device using Bluetooth® wireless technology.

Internet Radio and On-demand Streaming

TIDAL, Deezer, TuneIn, and Pandora® are baked into the GUI, which makes it super easy to select music using Onkyo Controller or the included remote. Spotify® subscribers can also cast direct from Spotify app to sound bar.

Wide Choice of Listening Modes

A suite of advanced sound programs are on hand including new Surround Enhancer, a listening mode based on Dolby® technology, which wraps sound around the audience by means of virtual rear speakers. DTS Neural:X, meanwhile, upmixes multichannel formats to 3D audio, while a variety of DSP programs tweak audio response to best suit music, movies, and games.

UltraHD / HDR Connectivity

The SBT-A500's HDMI specifications and HDCP 2.2 compatibility support the latest formats being released by Hollywood. The latest HDMI specs offer a significant increase in bandwidth (up to 18Gbps) to support new features such as 4:4:4 color space and [email protected]/60 (2160p), which is 4 times the clarity of 1080p/60 video resolution. The SBT-A500 enables transmission of High Dynamic Range (HDR) formats, with BT.2020 support, and provides enhanced picture quality by simultaneously enabling greater detail for both the dark and bright parts of an image. The SBT-A500 also upscales 1080p video to stunning 4k UltraHD.

Supports FireConnect™* Multi-room Audio

FireConnect mirrors any audio playing through your main entertainment system on wireless speakers placed around the home*. Playback control across zones is via Onkyo Controller.
* Multi-room audio is realized by FireConnect, a technology by Blackfire Research Corp., USA. Requires optional speakers. Onkyo cannot guarantee correct operation with other speaker brands supporting FireConnect. Audio sources supported by FireConnect are model-dependent.

Powerful Amps for Moving Sound

The receiver's slim form contains an efficient digital amplification system with independent power supply to deliver loads of clean power to the sound bar. Wireless sub has its own 50 W amp for deep LFEs in movies and games.

Clean and Simple Connection

How do we send five audio channels to the sound bar without a tangle of wires?
Simple: signals pass through a pin-type Multichannel Audio Cable. Plug your players into the receiver, link to the TV with a single HDMI®, and let simplified installation enhan
ce sound with a cleaner look.

Onkyo Factory Refurbished

Buying a Onkyo Factory Refurbished product is a great way to get "as-new" products at a considerable savings. Every product has been thoroughly tested, repaired (if necessary), cleaned and otherwise renewed to original condition. Next it’s repackaged in a new box with all original accessories included. When you consider that a factory-renewed Onkyo product undergoes such close scrutiny for defects and workmanship, you might actually be buying something that is in many ways better than new. And for your piece of mind and protection, your purchase is covered by a full 1 year parts and labor warranty valid at any authorized Onkyo repair center (you can look-up locations online here or call 201-785-2600)

Onkyo, like all electronics manufactures, receives products returned for various reasons. In 2011 consumers returned 17 billion dollars in electronics globally, of which less than 5% were found to be defective! Once a product has been opened it must be resold as refurbished and can’t be resold as new again. The history and reason why a product was returned is not provided to us, thus we can’t provide any additional details regarding its past. All products are processed by Onkyo certified technicians, where they are fully tested, repaired (only if necessary), and retested again to ensure the highest quality control. Each unit must pass a complete battery of test before it can be titled a "Onkyo Factory Refurbished" product.

Most units are Cosmetically in Mint Condition (graded a 9 or higher on a scale of 1-10). Very minor signs of wear (light surface scuffs or minor scratches) may be present, although most units show little or no signs of any usage. We DO NOT sell products that are cosmetically damaged (cracked displays, broken knobs, heavy scratches, or physically abused) unless noted in the description. Unfortunately, we can’t provide actual photos of each unit or pick the best one for anyone, as they are all randomly chosen from our factory sealed boxes.
