Surround Sound Speaker Systems enable you to enjoy the intense and immersive sound and atmosphere of the cinema in the comfort of your living room. A typical hi-fi amplifier is only suitable for use with a pair (or maybe two) of speakers. Home Cinema Surround Sound Systems typically feature five or more speakers, and so require a special amplifier able to simultaneously power and provide signal to multiple channels. These are known as AV Receivers. 


Onkyo is a well-established Japanese company who specialise in consumer hifi and audio visual products. With a wealth of experience. Onkyo is now synonymous with high quality design, build and performance.

Onkyo are a leading manufacturer of AV Receivers, home cinema systems and hi-fi separates with a range that spans from budget to high-end products, offering the latest technology.

With hi-fi products, Onkyo offer a range of integrated amplifiers, pre/power amps, digital streamers, network players, CD players, all with Onkyo's famous build and sound quality.

Onkyo was initially established under the name of Osaka Denki Onkyo and became known as an innovator researching work for pick-ups and loudspeaker chassis. The company began producing clay tonearms for record players with the CP100 becoming its first product with a price tag that was 3/5ths of the average monthly wage. A mere two years later after the CP100, the creation of a non-pressed loudspeaker cone revolutionised the speaker industry and Onkyo started with the structure of a loudspeaker factory designing special diaphragm materials.

Over the proceeding the years, the company has gone onto develop many innovative solutions which received worldwide global acclaim and multiple industry awards. In 1973, following the introduction of loudspeakers with titanium diaphragms and stereo amplifier Onkyo Integra A-755 to the market, Onkyo began manufacturing loudspeakers in Korea and revealed their slogan 'Artistry in sound.' In 1982 the first original CD players developed by Onkyo came on the market offering automatic continuous rendition, copying in high speed and simultaneous mixing in consumer products for the first time.

Onkyo have become one of the first major companies to transform management practices by following a philosophy of simple and fast to market. They debuted their flagship 'Reference' Hi-Fi Series in 2010 with the introduction of DIDRC and began producing a series of exclusive hi-fi separates for discerning audiophiles.

Today, Onkyo Corporation's umbrella incorporates Onkyo and the Integra and Integra Research divisions; it is currently headed by Naoto Othsuki and has become synonymous with sonic excellence and high-quality loudspeakers and components you would expect.

Standing at the centre of your Audio Visual and home entertainment system, an AV Receiver offers a wide range of inputs, allowing you to have all of your devices connected at any one time. Just like an integrated amplifier, an AV Receiver features a pre amp and power amp in one unit meaning you simply need to connect your speakers and a source (TV, CD player, Blu Ray player, DVD player etc.). It is possible to switch between your sources without having to unplug anything, and experience full surround sound for all your media.

Many modern AV Receivers include modern features and connectivity options, such as networking capabilities, Bluetooth and wireless. AirPlay technology is featured on many models, and allows you to play music from a device or smartphone wirelessly directly to your AV Receiver. Similarly, Bluetooth enables a secure and high quality wireless connection from any Bluetooth-enabled device. Many models feature networking, letting you connect your receiver to your home network and enjoy streaming services such as Spotify and Napster.

Modern AV Receivers feature a range of impressive features and components, making them a much more viable proposition for hi-fi use and standard stereo playback. Some models feature a high quality internal DAC, allowing for the connection of digital sources for greater audio quality and fidelity. Some models also include a set up microphone, enabling you to optimise your speaker positioning and ensure that you create a fully immersive surround sound experience.

All AV Receivers will allow you to use at least five speakers and a subwoofer, known as 5.1 surround sound. This configuration consists of two speakers at the rear, two at the front and one in the middle as well as a dedicated subwoofer to provide bass and depth to your favourite movies. Many customers choose to create an even more immersive system by adding speakers or even an additional subwoofer in configurations such as 7.1, 7.2, 9.1 or 9.2. If you wish to use a non-standard speaker configuration such as this, many AV Receivers offer this feature, but it is important to check that yours does if you wish to add additional speakers.
