Onkyo

The Onkyo HT-S9100THX

The new Onkyo HT-S9100THX combines a home theater receiver with a 7.1-channel home theater speaker system, all of which were designed to conform to THX's Integrated System Plus certification protocols. It also boasts1080p capable HDMI v.1.3 connectivity, Faroudja DCDi video upscaling, Audyssey 2EQ and Dynamic EQ, and complete decoding for the latest high resolution audio formats. The system also includes the new THX Loudness Plus technology which compensates for the tonal and spatial shifts that occur when the volume level is reduced below the reference levels.  Read More

July 24, 2008 While home-theater-in-a-box (HTIB) systems typically include hybrid DVD player/AV receivers that offer little in the way of an upgrade path, Onkyo's HT-S series includes a dedicated AV receiver capable of decoding Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio.  Read More

Audio speakers constructed like a guitar

August 24, 2006 Audiophiles and audio engineers have long debated the relative sound quality of vacuum tubes, vinyl records, Class A amplifiers, and exotic speaker cables, however, while the musical character of some acoustic devices was often a happy coincidence, there is nothing unintentional about a new loudspeaker from Onkyo and Takamine. Onkyo is now shipping the unusual loudspeaker, designed jointly with renowned guitar manufacturer Takamine, to express the positive qualities of both speaker performance and musical instrument design and construction. The Onkyo D-TK10 designers consciously rejected the inert-box acoustics of conventional speaker cabinetry in favour of a freely-vibrating thin-wall enclosure based on high-end guitar construction. Through strategic placement of struts, stringers, and thickness variations, the speaker harnesses the sounds that would normally be absorbed within the enclosure to stimulate carefully controlled cabinet resonances for a much fuller and richer sonic character.  Read More

Onkyo Combines OMF Speakers with Flat Screen Video Stand for Superior Sound Without Clutte...

March 4, 2005 Not everyone wants to hang their flat screen teevs on the wall. Indeed, one of the major problems is where to put the speaks, because they're not necessarily big and flat. Onkyo has come up with an elegant solution for some of us - the CB-SP1200 is a video display stand with integrated left, right, and centre channel speakers for high quality audio, and no added clutter. The gloss black stand is compatible with LCD or Plasma flat panel displays, and tabletop rear projection or conventional CRT models weighing up to 250 pounds.  Read More
