Onkyo Mid-year Product Launch Includes Two THX Home Theater Receivers and Two New HTiB Packaged Systems

Onkyo USA has introduced two mid-price home theater receivers and two packaged home theater systems, as part of its mid-year new product announcements. Both receivers are THX certified and include the new THX Loudness Plus audio processing technology for improved low-volume-level listening. All of the new models include expanded HDMI connectivity, Faroudja DCDi video processing capabilities, Audyssey room acoustics correction and Dynamic EQ, and Onkyo’s Music Optimizer for improved sound from heavily compressed digital sources.

“These new models represent solid gains in performance, versatility, and convenience in the mid-price market,” said Paul Wasek, Onkyo’s marketing manager. “They give consumers the ability to attain optimal performance with all the newest AV sources and high definition video screens at an affordable price. We have added more HDMI inputs with greater use of Faroudja DCDi technology to provide high definition video. The THX certified models now have THX Loudness Plus processing for improved sound quality at quieter listening levels. Overall, these receivers and HTiB systems represent an incredible value in terms of price and performance.”

The Onkyo TX-SR806 and TX-SR706 home theater receivers have THX Ultra2 Plus and Select2 Plus certification respectively, and both include the new THX Loudness Plus technology. The TX-SR806 and TX-SR706 have five and four HDMI 1.3a repeater inputs respectively to allow optimal HD audio and video performance with the full spectrum of Blu-ray, cable, game, and satellite sources. The sophisticated Faroudja DCDi Cinema video processor circuits can upscale HDMI digital video sources to a 1080p output, and dramatically improve the resolution of analog video signals compared to the source. The TX-SR806 also provides up-conversion to 1080i for the analog component video output.

Onkyo’s new HT-S7100 and HT-S6100 HTiB packaged systems each consists of a home theater receiver, seven-channel loudspeaker system, powered subwoofer, and iPod dock. In addition, the HT-S7100 includes two stylish speaker stands. The system receivers have four HDMI inputs with video upscaling to 1080i via Faroudja DCDi Edge technology. The premium audio processing includes DTS-HD Master Audio and Dolby TrueHD, Audyssey 2EQ room acoustics correction, and Audyssey Dynamic EQ loudness correction.

The Onkyo TX-SR706 receiver is now available with a suggested retail price of $899. HT-S7100 and HT-S6100 systems are also currently available with suggested retail prices of $899 and $799 respectively. The TX-SR806 will have a suggested retail price of $1,099, and it will be shipping in mid August.
