Immerse yourself in 7.1-channel surround sound with the Onkyo HT-S5500 7.1 Home Theater System. The receiver and speaker package offers a solid foundation for any home theater with 1,030 watts of total power, including an independently powered 120-watt subwoofer for deep, robust bass that you can hear and feel. You can easily add a Blu-ray or DVD player and gaming console to complete your entertainment experience. With processing for an array of advanced Dolby and DTS audio formats, you can achieve a more detailed, realistic sound field.
The receiver's four HDMI 1.4a inputs and one HDMI 1.4a output support 3D content, so in addition to surround sound you can immerse yourself in the realistic, wraparound visuals of 3D content all in the comfort of your living room. It also carries an Audio Return Channel so that content can be directly received by your HDTV's tuner to be sent "upstream" without another cable. For gaming, Onkyo has included four DSP modes to customize your experience based on what type of game you're playing. This system also employs 192kHz/24-bit Burr Brown D/A converters for all channels. These provide sampling rates of up to 192 kHz with high resistance to clock jitter and a 113 dB dynamic range. They allow you to achieve clear, distortion-free surround sound in your home theater system.
With Audyssey setup technologies, you can enjoy an optimized audio experience. These work to ensure a consistent bass response, tonal balance and sound effect as well as smoothing out volume fluctuations so you can enjoy an optimized dynamic range. This way you won't have to reach for the remote during loud commercials or quiet dialogue scenes in your favorite movies, because your home theater system will even these out for you.
Connect your iPod, iPhone, or USB memory device via the front-panel USB port to widen your entertainment options. What's more, your compressed files can sound better than ever with the Advanced Music Optimizer that compensates for lost bit information that happens during compression of these files. The front panel analog A/V inputs also allow you to connect a game console or camcorder.
Whether you're looking to pump high definition audio and video into your home theater for movies, music or games, the HT-S5500 is a superb choice that can get the job done. It offers a sleek design as well, with a black high-gloss finish to complement any home theater setup.
