So if you've got a 3D-ready HDTV or home theater projector, 3D-ready cable and 3D glasses you've got everything you need to enjoy high-powered immersive visuals to match the detailed, low-distortion audio this receiver is capable of supporting.

This receiver utilizes 192 kHz/24-Bit Burr-Brown D/A converters for improved jitter and clearer audio, and a High Current Power Supply (H.C.P.S.) Massive High Power Transformer ensures there is enough power for audio peaks.

A front-panel USB port offers a high-quality digital link to your iPod or iPhone. The "Made for iPod / iPhone" mark means it was designed and built to connect specifically to your iPod or iPhone and was certified by the developer to meet Apple performance standards. To get the best from your compressed audio files, the TX-SR309 employs Onkyo's proprietary Advanced Music Optimizer.

When gaming, you can choose from four customized audio modes to match your gaming content both in 2D and 3D: Rock, Sports, Action and Role Playing modes.

Four DSP Audio Gaming Modes

A high setting allows your subwoofer to produce more sound, whereas a low setting offers less sound depending on the output of your system and your desired sound output. For optimum bass output, the crossover frequency can be set according to the size and frequency response of your speakers.
Universal Port for Optional iPod Dock or Optional HD Radio Receiver
