UPPER SADDLE RIVER, NJ (4/24/07) — Onkyo has begun shipping two high-value 5.1-channel home theater systems that deliver premium surround sound performance in value-priced packages that are remarkably simple to set up and operate. These high-quality receiver/speaker systems combine the commanding sonic performance characteristic of Onkyo separate components with the simplicity of an all-in-one system. Both the HT-SR600 and the HT-SR700 include a powerful subwoofer, a complete set of tonally matched two-way satellite speakers, and a high power multichannel A/V receiver with component video switching and complete surround processing.
For connectivity, the HT-SR600 and HT-SR700 A/V receivers each feature three component video inputs and one output that are fully capable of switching 1080i/720p high definition video sources without picture degradation. Additionally, there are also three A/V inputs and two outputs with both component and S-Video connections, as well as three optical and one coaxial digital audio input to accommodate a wide variety of source components. Color-coded 5.1 multi-channel analog inputs are also included, making the receivers compatible with the latest Dolby Digital Plus and DTS-HD formats found on HD-DVD and Blu-Ray sources.
Onkyo’s HT-SR700 and HT-SR600 each feature five newly designed satellite speakers and a powerful subwoofer for deep bass reproduction. The front L/R and horizontal center channel speakers each feature a pair of 3-1/4 inch cone woofers and a high quality 3/4-inch ceramic tweeter. For a coherent and timbre-matched surround field, the included surround speakers each use the same drivers as the front speakers, but employ only a single woofer.
Each system includes downfiring subwoofer with a 10-inch cone driver. In the HT-SR600 the subwoofer is driven by a sixth amplifier channel in the receiver, while the HT-SR700′ subwoofer is an active model with its own internal 230-watt amplifier module. All crossover points in each system can be set to any of eight possible settings for ideal integration with the environment and listener preferences.
The Onkyo HT-SR600 and HT-SR700 home theater systems each include a full-function RI (Remote Interactive) remote control and 30-preset AM/FM tuner. Each system is completely compatible with the company’s RI iPod docks, making it as simple as possible to play music and video from a portable iPod through the home theater system.
The Onkyo HT-SR600 and HT-SR700 are each currently shipping in both black and silver finishes at suggested retail prices of $349 and $499 each, respectively.
