The Onkyo TXSR576 is the perfect way to make the move to High Definition without breaking the bank. With an impressive array of features, the TXSR576 will be a top-notch hub for your home cinema system.
Supporting 7.1 channels of audio, the TX-SR576 is ideal for use with DVD and Blu-ray. Via HDMI, it will decode Dolby Digital Plus - the new HD audio format commonly found on Blu-ray movies, as well as standard Dolby Digital and DTS. The impressive surround sound will immerse you in your movies and make the experience all the more enjoyable. Set-up is also made easy, thanks to the Audyssey 2EQ equalisation and calibration system.
HD video is no problem either as the TXSR576 has three HDMI inputs and one output supporting 1080p pass-through switching. There's also component video, S-Video and composite video inputs and outputs for use with non-HDMI devices.
If you want to join the HD revolution, but don't want a hefty price tag, then the Onkyo TXSR576 is an excellent choice.
