Get High-End Performance at a Realistic Price
Enter a realm of high-definition sound and vision with Onkyo’s exceptionally well-equipped HT-R548 home theater receiver. This versatile unit offers outstanding value for money, packing an array of amplification, processing, and connectivity features into one easy-to-use component. Four HDMI® inputs handle 3D and hi-def video formats, high-definition gaming, and Dolby® TrueHD and DTS-HD™, while an Audio Return Channel allows your HDTV’s regular sound to be played through the receiver and speakers. Dynamic surround sound comes via a platform of high-end amplification features-and music lovers will appreciate the front-panel USB for iPod/iPhone and Advanced Music Optimizer to enhance the quality of compressed digital music files. Audyssey’s acoustic correction system calibrates the soundstage to your room’s unique shape, and vastly simplifies the initial set-up. Powerful, intelligent, and precision-engineered to exacting standards, the HT-R548 is ready to transform your lounge room into a high-definition heaven.
HDMI® Support for 3D Video and Audio Return Channel
The four HDMI inputs on the HT-R548 let you simultaneously connect high-def sources such as a Blu-ray player, a gaming console, and a cable/satellite tuner. A single output then sends a pristine signal to your connected high-resolution display. The HDMI implementation on this receiver supports both 3D video and an Audio Return Channel, along with numerous high-resolution formats. 3D video brings exciting possibilities to home entertainment, with movie, game, and broadcast content on the increase and 3D-compatible TVs now on the market. Meanwhile, the Audio Return Channel allows audio content received directly by your HDTV’s tuner to be sent “upstream” via HDMI to your A/V receiver, without the need for a separate S/PDIF audio cable.
Direct Digital Connection of iPod/iPhone via Front-Panel USB Port
The HT-R548’s front-panel USB port lets you access MP3, WMA, FLAC, and AAC audio files stored on a USB flash drive or iPod/iPhone. As the audio signals are transported in digital form, rather than analog, there is much less chance of signal degradation. End result: your music sounds cleaner and more faithful to the original. A further benefit of the USB input is that it lets you use the system’s remote controller to play back audio files on the connected device.
192 kHz/24-Bit TI Burr-Brown DACs Improve Jitter Performance to Deliver Clearer Sound
High-quality Burr-Brown DACs work to optimize analog audio performance on the HT-R548. These DACs perform advanced 24-bit signal processing and support sampling rates of up to 192 kHz, while displaying high resistance to clock jitter.
