-ONKYO TXSR577 HOME CINEMA RECEIVER
The Onkyo TX-SR577 7.1 home cinema receiver rewrites the rules of affordable home theatre by combining superb video processing, convenient connectivity, and 7.1 channels of spectacular high-definition audio. With its four HDMI 1.3a inputs, the Onkyo TX-SR577 lets you hook up, say, a Blu-ray Disc player, an HD set-top box, an upscaling DVD player, and a PlayStation® 3 gaming system. HDMI is also the conduit for the superb, master-quality audio of Dolby® TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio™. The very latest Dolby technology, Dolby® Pro Logic® IIz, gives you the option of incorporating front height channels to enhance the spatial sensation of music, movies, and video games. When it comes to balancing volume levels and customizing the multichannel soundstage to the dimensions of your room, the Onkyo TX-SR577 employs a suite of intelligent Audyssey surround-sound listening modes. Rounding out this versatile A/V receiver is a rear-side universal port that lets you connect an optional Onkyo Dock for the iPod or Onkyo DAB+ Radio Tuner.
Incorporating HDMI version 1.3a, along with advanced processing capabilities, the Onkyo TX-SR577 home cinema receiver makes for a powerful A/V control centre. Up to four components can be connected via HDMI, including Blu-ray Disc players, gaming consoles, and set-top boxes. The Onkyo TX-SR577 can receive and switch high-def media, such as HD broadcasts and Blu-ray Discs, and send a pure digital output to your HDTV. What's more, all multichannel audio from bit-for-bit streams to standard Dolby Digital can be input via HDMI for processing on the Onkyo TX-SR577. HDMI version 1.3a enables CEC (Consumer Electronics Control) and offers greater bandwidth to deal with higher resolutions, 36-bit Deep Colour™, and high frame rates.
Dolby Pro Logic IIz offers the proven quality of Dolby Pro Logic IIx and adds a new vertical dimension to your home theatre soundstage. As with previous versions of Dolby Pro Logic, this latest version delivers a convincing surround-sound experience from any movie or music source even a stereo one. On the Onkyo TX-SR577, Dolby Pro Logic IIz enables you to incorporate two "front height" speakers into your surround-sound set-up as an alternative to the two surround back speakers. The front height channels carry ambient, non-directional audio that helps immerse you even more deeply into your movies and games. With Dolby Pro Logic IIz, rain seems to burst from clouds right above you, and helicopters fly realistically overhead.
The Onkyo TX-SR577 handles Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio two lossless decoding formats that enable delivery of a bit-for-bit soundtrack identical to the studio master track. Both Codecs take advantage of the high data capacity of the Blu-ray Disc (BD) format. Another BD-related technology is DTS-HD Express, which provides access to secondary audio features. The Onkyo TX-SR577 also handles two "lossy" audio formats: Dolby® Digital Plus and DTS-HD High Resolution Audio™. Dolby Digital Plus is designed to accompany high-definition video delivered via disc media, broadcasts, and online content. DTS-HD High Resolution Audio, meanwhile, offers a greater bit rate, a higher sampling rate, and more channels than the core DTS technology.
The Onkyo TX-SR577 features a proprietary universal port, located on the rear side of the unit, to which you can connect Onkyo's DAB+ Radio Tuner or Dock for the iPod. The dock sends both video and audio signals through a single cable. Earlier versions of Onkyo's Dock for the iPod can be connected via our Remote Interactive (RI) system.
