Onkyo’s New Flagship Pre-Amp Handles It All
Boasting the premium quality assurance of THX® Ultra2 Plus™, the PR-SC5509 is the ultimate conduit for all your music, games, and movies. Whether from a Blu-ray or SACD player, from your PC or the web, from a game console or an iPhone, your entertainment is brought stunningly to life. Eight HDMI® inputs for high-definition formats such as 3D video and lossless audio and an Ethernet jack for home-network audio make system integration a breeze. HDMI terminals, 9.2-channel XLR outs, and stereo XLR inputs are gold-plated for pristine signal transfer. Further evidence of audiophile build quality comes in the form of a customized toroidal transformer, separate audio/video transformers, and an anti-vibration chassis. Processing is also top-notch. For video, an HQV® Vida™ processor and Qdeo™ technology work to eliminate noise and upscale video to eye-popping 4K resolution. On the audio side, Audyssey MultEQ® XT32 and DTS Neo:X™ offer incredible flexibility for creating an immersive room-matching soundstage. Partnered with a high-end 9-channel power amp and surround speakers, the PR-SC5509 keeps the high-quality entertainment flowing.
THX® Ultra2 Plus™ Certified
The ultimate benchmark for home audio performance, THX Ultra2 Plus is specified for rooms where the screen-to-seat viewing distance is more than 4 meters and the room volume is 85 cubic meters or greater. To achieve THX Ultra2 Plus certification, the PR-SC5509 must meet the world’s most demanding standards for home theater audio quality and performance, and must play at reference volume levels with minimal distortion.
Network Capability Delivers Internet Radio and Network Audio Streaming via Ethernet
Linking directly to the internet or to a media server or home PC via a local network, the PR-SC5509 takes streaming audio and internet radio to a whole new level. MP3, WMA, WMA Lossless, FLAC, WAV, Ogg Vorbis, AAC, and LPCM audio files can now be played back through your main system with unprecedented power and fidelity. The PR-SC5509 also brings to life a huge array of internet radio channels from Last.fm and vTuner, plus on-demand music streaming from Napster, Spotify, and AUPEO!*. As well as being compatible with earlier platforms, the receiver is compatible with Microsoft’s Windows® 7 platform, which includes the DLNA 1.5-specified “Play To” media-streaming feature. The PR-SC5509’s internet connectivity has the added benefit of making firmware updates simpler than ever.
Massive Toroidal Transformer and Two Separate Transformers
Onkyo’s H.C.P.S. (High Current Power Supply) has the ability to respond to the wide dynamic range of home theater. A massive toroidal transformer efficiently delivers a steady source of power under any conditions. It has been designed to minimize noise radiation into the surrounding circuitry for a super-clean signal. In addition, the PR-SC5509 features separate transformers for audio and video processing, which means the system works more comfortably and efficiently.
