The Gunman Trivia Sweepstakes: Enter to Win an Onkyo Dolby Atmos-Ready AV Receiver!


In conjunction with the upcoming Blu-ray release of The Gunman, our friends at Dolby and Onkyo are offering a terrific opportunity for AVS Forum members to win an Onkyo TX-NR1030, 9.2 channel Dolby Atmos A/V Receiver valued at $1699.00. As a bonus a copy of The Gunman on Blu-ray will be included in the prize pack!



Here are some details on the TX-NR1030 from Onkyo’s website:

Get tomorrow's high-impact entertainment today with the TX-NR1030. Separate amp and processing blocks, a massive high-current transformer, seven Burr-Brown DACs, and dual 32-bit DSP engines provide a solid foundation for astonishing Onkyo sound and vision. Built-in is the new Dolby Atmos®, the revolutionary surround-sound format. Originally developed for use in multiplex theaters, now you can bring Dolby Atmos into your own home with the TX-NR1030.

Balanced front XLR and 11.4-multichannel pre-outs and 135 Watts per channel effortlessly handle the most dynamic of audio tracks. 8-in/3-out 4K/60 Hz HDMI® 2.0 terminals support HDCP 2.2-copy-protected 4K internet video and provide the ultimate connectivity for your future- ready home theater. The TX-NR1030 is also engineered for breathtaking stereo performance, as Pure Direct Analog Path puts soulful analog sound right up there with dedicated hi-fi amps. Wi-Fi® and Bluetooth open a world of wireless digital music, from hi-res network music streaming through to Spotify. On top of all this, there's 4K video upscaling, ISF video calibration, and smartphone control in every zone. It's simply the best-equipped, best-sounding 9.2-channel receiver available for next-generation entertainment.


Onkyo’s fervent commitment to high quality high value home theater gear has made them a favorite among many here on AVS Forum. In addition, Dolby Atmos represents one of the most exciting advances in home theater sound since the advent of multi-channel listening.


About THE GUNMAN:

From the director of Taken comes The Gunman, a pulse-pounding action thriller starring two-time Academy Award® winner Sean Penn. It’s been eight years since Jim Terrier (Penn) worked as a black ops assassin and now someone from his old organization wants him dead. Pursued across Africa and Europe by elite hit men, Terrier is dragged back into his dangerous past as he engages in a relentless cat-and-mouse game to take out the man who betrayed him. Idris Elba, Ray Winstone, Mark Rylance and Oscar® winner Javier Bardem costar in a hair-trigger thrill-ride the critics are calling “intense!” (Dave Karger, Fandango).

I haven't seen the movie so I guessed at all the answers. Hope I don't have to answer the questions correctly to win.

I have never won any of these contests and don't expect to win this one, but I'd love to get my hands on this receiver and replace my current aging Onkyo. So once again, I fill out a survey....

No matter where you go, There you are ;)

I don't like surveys since they use your information any way they want.

And why are the rules so subdued like that?

Entered. Though I'm sure this gig only applies to USA citizens or something silly like that again. Being from New Zealand I seem to be excluded from all the good prize draws these days...

I already own a brand new Denon though, so would gift the Onkyo to a friend if I win. :-)
