Onkyo HT-S5400 Home Theater in a Box

672565.jpg

Onkyo announced the 7.1-channel Onkyo HT-S5400 home-theater-in-a-box (HTiB) receiver-and-speaker system that combines the convenience of packaged home theater with the audio pedigree.

The home theater receiver at the heart of the system features the latest implementation of the HDMI connectivity standard with support for 3D video, lossless audio from Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio, and an Audio Return Channel. The latter feature sends an audio signal “upstream” from a connected HDTV's tuner, eliminating the need for a separate audio cable. Along with four HDMI inputs and one output, each receiver includes a generous selection of digital and analog A/V inputs to handle a wide range of playback devices.

The amplifier sections of the receiver incorporates a massive transformer, optimum gain volume circuitry, and PLL jitter-cleaning circuitry to preserve signal accuracy. Other features include high-quality TI Burr-Brown audio DACs, a new Advanced Music Optimizer to enhance the fidelity of compressed audio files, and a convenient overlaid on-screen display for adjusting the settings. It also includes Audyssey Dynamic EQ and Audyssey Dynamic Volume, two volume and equalization technologies that enable users to enjoy audio content in greater comfort.

The HT-S5400 offers the most extensive feature set. Its two extra audio channels enable it to support Dolby Pro Logic IIz, an audio processing technology that allows users to reconfigure the two surround-back channels as “front height” channels and increase the ambience of movies and games. The HT-S5400 boasts slightly superior audio DACs compared to the HT-S3400.

Located on the front panel of the HT-S5400's receiver is a USB port that offers a direct digital connection for iPod/iPhone. Other highlights of the HT-S5400 include a powered subwoofer and a subwoofer pre-out for greater low-end impact, and Audyssey 2EQ, which works to adjust the soundstage to the unique dimensions of the user's listening space. The receiver is complemented by a seven-channel speaker set consisting of mid-size, two-way front LCR speakers and four compact full-range satellites.

Price and Availability
The Onkyo HT-S5400 will be available in April for $599.
