Meet your Google Assistant
The Onkyo G3 Smart Speaker has the Google Assistant built-in. You can stream music, find answers on Google Search, manage everyday tasks, and easily control smart devices around your home- simply by using your voice. Just say "Ok Google" to start a conversation with your Google Assistant.
Go multi-room with Chromecast built-in
As well as streaming music from a wide selection of linked services, including Google Play Music, Pandora®*, and TuneIn, you can ask the Smart Speaker G3 to play media on other Chromecastenabled speakers, such as home theaters, wireless speakers, soundbars, and hi-fi systems. Play music in one room or in multiple rooms at once. Chromecast built-in works with iPhone, iPad, Android™ devices, Mac or Windows® laptop, and Chromebook™.
*Service available in US only.
Automate your home
The Google Assistant also integrates with apps for selected smart appliances, such as Philips Hue and SmartThings, to enable home automation by voice. You can ask the Google Assistant to dim the lights or adjust room temperature, for example. For more information, visit https://assistant.google.com.
One app for everything
The Google Home app sets up your G3 and tailors it to your family's needs. It helps you integrate your favorite music service apps for voice-automated streaming. You can also cast audio from supported mobile devices, laptops, and PCs by touching the "cast" icon within Chromecast-enabled apps.
Plug-and-play right out of the box: connect the power cord, set up the speaker using the Google Home app, link the music apps you'd like to use, and say "Ok Google" to choose your music.
Crafted for immersive hi-fi sound
Pick up the speaker and hold it in your hand. You'll notice its weight. That's because it's built to sound better, creating a wide and deep sound field using a massive long-throw driver and soft-dome tweeter inside a tuned enclosure. Trust Onkyo's 70 years in audio to elevate the smart speaker experience.
Tuned cabinet for clear sound
Engineers mapped resonances and standing waves caused by sound reflections inside and around the wooden cabinet with computers. The information was used to proportion and tune the enclosure to virtually eliminate vibration and enhance clarity. Enjoy clean, punchy bass with a sparkling and unstrained mid-range for vocals.
Custom 2-Way drivers
A custom woofer is encircled by a thick metal frame supporting a massive, heavyweight magnet and basket system. This powerful motor generates huge force to throw the woofer cone about 1.5 times further than conventional speakers. The result is a wider frequency response and deeper bass. High-frequency sound is aired by a quality soft-dome tweeter. Music takes shape realistically on a wide soundstage, with energetic presentation delivering more satisfying listening.
High-output switching amplification
Original switching amplification system achieves excellent thermal efficiency for driving power with virtually no heat. Dynamic noise reduction technology assures clear and smooth sound even at high volume.
