As promised, Onkyo has launched its Dolby Atmos firmware upgrade. The free update is now available for the company's TX-NR636, TX-NR737, and TX-NR838 receivers through a network connection or USB download, just in time for the release of 'Transformers: Age of Extinction,' the first Blu-ray to support an Atmos mix.

"We are excited to provide this free update to owners of our 2014 network receivers beginning with TX-NR636," says Onkyo Corporation General Manager, Kevin Miyagi. "Our Dolby Atmos enabled receivers allow Onkyo customers to enjoy not only new content that will be released in Dolby Atmos but will also provide an enhanced experience of their current Blu-ray libraries through Dolby Surround.”"

Dolby Atmos home theater technology uses object-based mixing to expand audio design beyond the traditional limitations of channel-based systems, and incorporates the inclusion of overhead sound. In addition to the aforementioned devices, Onkyo is also releasing the high-end TX-NR1030 ($1,599) and TX-NR3030 ($2,299) receivers, and the PR-SC5530 Network A/V Controller ($2,499) with Atmos support built-in this October. Likewise, the HT-S7700 Network Home Theater System will also feature integrated Atmos support and will ship at the end of September. For more details on Dolby Atmos, check out our Dolby Atmos Home Theater Guide.

The TX-NR636 ($530), TX-NR737 ($795), and TX-NR838 ($826) receivers are all available for purchase now.
