It serves as a next-gen 4K/60 Hz-ready hub for all your devices (game consoles, STBs, VCRs, and BD players) and sends everything to your TV through a single HDMI. But best of all, its discrete analog amps immerse you in 140 W/Ch of clear and dynamic sound (6 Ohm), whether it’s from your regular TV shows, DTS-HD Master Audio-encoded Blu-rays, an AM/FM radio station, or MP3s played via USB. So if you want to fix your thin flatscreen sound, do it properly and do it affordably with this compact A/V solution.
This is a budget AVR weighing only 7.9 kg, it has a minimum of twists compared to its large-sized counterparts. A redesigned and clearly labeled rear panel and simple remote controller make initial setup and daily operation easy, while AccuEQ room acoustic correction ensures clear stereo imaging and equalized surround sound. It has 5-position screw terminals for the front channels, and the center and rear channels have spring terminals. Like its counterparts, the receiver has a typical Onkyo discrete channel circuit for all channels (great for 2-channel listening, especially with its 192K / 24-bit DAC) and 4K format.
There is analog subwoofer pre-out and USB input. In a multi-component multimedia system, there is 4/1 HDMI input / output from the Audio Return Channel to the TV.
AccuEQ measures and corrects speaker distances, output levels, crossover frequencies, and frequency response from one quick and easy listening position to ensure clear and balanced surround-sound. Connections to speakers and external source devices are illustrated and clearly labeled on the back panel.
