Yes. Atmos would hookup to the HEIGHT inputs on rear of the receiver.

Options for 2020/2021 receivers pretty much zero under 1k

Suppose if you don't care about HDMI 2.1 this is probably one of your best options for the price.

It's my opinion that you probably want a HDMI 2.1 receiver in 2022 even if there is not a whole lot of content at 4K 120hz right now. In a few years as more and more lower to mid tier TVs switch to HDMI 2.1 and console refreshes/GPUs becoming more powerful, you're going to be happy that you bought a receiver with HDMI 2.1.

If you're only going to use your receiver to watch movies and listen to music then I agree, no big reason to upgrade. But for multimedia consumers I don't think paying 800 for this receiver is worth it.

Amplifier Features
• 220 W/Ch (6 ohms, 1 kHz, 10% THD)

Whenever these companies advertise power with 10% THD, they're being very disingenuous. That much distortion will destroy speakers and is unusable.

Onkyo has really went the way of walmart. 10% harmonic voltage distortion on a flagship receiver? LOL

That can't be right, can it?

That's just one (not very useful) spec. The more relevant spec is the continuous 100 watts per channel, 2 channel, .08% distortion spec.

Looking for advice. I currently have a Denon AVR-S940H 7.2 receiver connected to Pioneer speakers and subwoofer. SP-C21 center speaker, 4 FS-51's for L/R and surround, and 2 SW-8's for subwoofers. I put one set of SP-T22A add-ons for Atmos. I want to add another set of SP-T22A. That would mean I need a 9.2 capable receiver. Should I buy this Onkyo? A different receiver? Is there some other way to add the SP-T22A?

Would this eliminate the issue in a 7.2 system of having to either have the rears or the atmos speakers on?

Bought a Dolby Digital receiver and thought I was all set. Then the next round was DTS, then 6.1,7.1, then component switching then hdmi. Sucks limping on an old system

Came here to say the same. But it was in regard to quoting specs at 6ohm 1 channel driven. The THD number is just salt in the wound. Onkyo should be ashamed - total bargain bin crap marketing.

How are we going to 10% total harmonic distortion. When my Sony es series 20 years ago was not 10.Chinese. Crap. Products.

Why are so many people hung up on a THD figure that doesn't matter in real world usage? Read any review for this thing and the concensus is that it has excellent sound quality.
