|HDMI® (High-Definition Multimedia Interface)|
|Transporting high-definition (HD) video, 3D encoded HD video, and multi-channel HD audio, HDMI is the most desirable connection for home entertainment. Onkyo’s HDMI-enabled A/V components send and receive HD signals, connecting components such as Blu-ray Disc players, DVD players, media streamers, and gaming consoles to compatible HDTVs. Recent versions of HDMI also incorporate an ARC (Audio Return Channel) for sending audio from the TV tuner through the connected receiver, and for enabling the use of an overlaid high-definition GUI (Graphical User Interface) on Onkyo A/V receivers.
|RIHD (Remote Interactive over HDMI)|
|For A/V receivers
Select Onkyo A/V receivers offer integrated system control with certain HDMI-compatible high-definition displays, DVD and hard-disk recorders, and Blu-ray Disc players. With one remote control, you can control certain functions, including Standby, Volume and Direct Change. These receivers can seamlessly integrate with other compatible playback components and displays.For DVD players
RIHD also enables selected Onkyo players to easily integrate with compatible Onkyo A/V receivers and other compatible displays.
*Compatibility depends on respective model.
|1080p Video Upscaling|
|Selected Onkyo A/V products feature upscaling technology performed by a powerful video processor. The technology allows compatible source video of a lower resolution—say, from standard DVD or an online source, for example—to be de-interlaced and converted to Full HD, or 1080 lines of vertical display resolution. Selected Onkyo network receivers and Blu-ray players use high-quality processors from Marvell and HQV®, which use complex algorithms to clean “block noise” and “mosquito noise” from video in real time. The resultant picture on your HDTV is extremely smooth, clear, and detailed.
|DIDRC (Dynamic Intermodulation Distortion Reduction Circuitry)|
|Since the advent of digital audio, signal-to-noise ratios have improved dramatically. However, the S/N ratio reflects static noise only, and takes no account of another type of noise that occurs as the byproduct of sound reproduction—dynamic noise. To reduce this type of noise, Onkyo has developed DIDRC technology for use in our hi-fi components. Despite being beyond the normal range of human hearing, frequencies above 100 kHz are susceptible to clock pulse and other forms of distortion from digital devices. Such distortion in the super-high-frequency range can generate “beat interference”, which in turn affects the character or atmosphere of the original sound. By improving linearity and reducing distortion in the super-high frequency range, Onkyo’s new DIDRC technology effectively reduces perceptible noise and delivers clearer-than-ever audio.
|VLSC (Vector Linear Shaping Circuitry)|
|Virtually removes digital pulse noise for a smooth analog signal.
Conventional D/A conversion methods reduce digital pulse noise at the conversion stage but can’t remove it completely. VLSC employs a unique D/A conversion circuit to overcome this problem. Data is converted between sampling points and these points are joined with analog vectors in real time to produce a smooth output wave form. The result—a virtually noiseless, smooth, analog signal based on the digital source that brings out even the most subtle of nuances in music sources (including DVD-Audio and Super Audio CD), DVD Video sources (including high-definition), broadcasts, digital music files such as MP3s, and gaming content.
|Multi-Format Playback Capability*|
|Onkyo players handle a range of commercial disc formats, including Blu-ray Disc, DVD, and audio CD. Their versatility extends to popular compressed file formats, too. On the audio side, MP3- and WMA-encoded discs are played back with a fuller sound and with energy lacking on PCs and portable music devices. And on the video side, DivX HD Plus files take on a whole new level of visual realism. Onkyo players can even let you play back your JPEG photos and AVCHD videos on a connected display.*Capability depends on specific model.
|Home Network Capability|
|The rear-side Ethernet port on selected Onkyo players lets you connect them to a home network and incorporate a huge array of content into your main entertainment system. The device then works as a seamless and convenient conduit for videos, music, and photos stored on your PC or digital media server.
|Super Precision Clock|
|If you think of the clock as an orchestra conductor, then the separate digital signals are the individual instruments in that orchestra. Without a talented conductor—an accurate clock— sound quality is degraded. That means you’ll get a harsh treble, a smaller soundstage and music that sounds synthetic. Our state-of-the-art crystal oscillator achieves a frequency deviation of just ±1.5 ppm, compared with ±50 ppm on a conventional crystal oscillator. The difference is clear: a stunningly realistic sound field and a beautifully sustained tone for all musical instruments.
|Thermally Regulated Super-Precision Clock|
|An extremely precise clocking mechanism coordinates the timing of all digital signal processes on selected CD players. The player’s crystal oscillator achieves an extremely low frequency deviation of ±1.5 ppm. Even in surrounding temperatures of -30°C or +80°C the frequency remains stable, with only ±0.5 ppm of additional frequency deviation.
|Silent Disc Mechanism with Die-Cast Tray|
|Affixed to four supports made of rigid machined brass, the CD drive provides excellent resistance to internal vibrations. Furthermore, the disc tray is precision-engineered from high-rigidity, die-cast aluminum. Thanks to these advanced design features, the disc mechanism offers smooth and silent operation.|
