Based on the hugely successful TXSR505, the Onkyo TXSR506 is a 7.1 channel home cinema receiver featuring an excellent feature count for the price. Superb Onkyo design and build quality make this a great buy.
Three HDMI inputs and one output (supporting 1080p pass-through switching) make the TXSR-506 ideal for use with DVD or Blu-ray. There's also component video, S-Video and composite video inputs and outputs.
The TX-SR506 features a myriad of audio options. It can be configured for 7.1, 5.1 with or without bi-amplified front speakers and also features both a second zone speaker out and line out. There's decoding of Dolby Digital and DTS and the good selection of equalisation modes allow you to tune the TXSR506's sound to your listening taste. The advanced Audyssey 2EQ auto-microphone calibration system also makes set-up a breeze - plug in the microphone, push a few buttons on the remote, and the system is ready to go.
With a stylish design and top-notch performance, the Onkyo TXSR506 is a superb choice for those wanting a feature packed but affordable home cinema hub.
The SFX 5.1 Speaker System from Tannoy is an elegant and discrete home cinema speaker package solution which represents great value for money. Four attractively designed satellites and a dedicated centre speaker provide excellent surround sound that will immerse you in the movie soundtrack, whilst the powerful subwoofer delivers impressive bass to make those explosions sound even more realistic. The ultra-wide frequency response of the SFX5.1 is perfect for DVD-Audio and SACD and ensures that both movies and music sound fantastic.
The compact satellites can be discretely placed around the living room and the included brackets mean that you can mount them on the wall to avoid taking up valuable shelf space. Optional stands are also available for maximum flexibility.
If 5.1 isn't enough for you that's not a problem, because optional additional speakers enable 6.1 or 7.1 upgrades and improved performance.
