Affordable Home Theater Just Got Better
With the addition of Onkyo’s acclaimed WRAT (Wide Range Amplifier Technology) to its entry-level A/V receivers, home theater fans on a budget can now enjoy greater fidelity than ever before. This 5.1-channel AVR packs an array of features into a compact and stylish cabinet—all designed to perfect audio performance and seamlessly integrate your A/V components into one intelligent and powerful system. Four HDMI® inputs and one output provide connectivity for your 3D TV, gaming consoles, and BD player, while a USB port offers a clean digital link to your iPod/iPhone or flash memory drive. An HDMI-linked interactive on-screen display makes set-up and mid-program adjustment easy. Naturally, the AVR decodes a range of high-definition codecs such as Dolby® TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio™. But it’s the sound that really sets Onkyo apart, and you can rest assured that with the TX-SR313, you’re getting the precision build, power, and fidelity that you might expect from a more expensive component.
Audio Return Channel and 3D Video via HDMI®
Four HDMI inputs on the TX-SR313 allow you to easily integrate high-definition devices such as Blu-ray players, cable/satellite tuners, and gaming consoles. HDMI implementation on this receiver also supports an Audio Return Channel, allowing audio received directly by your TV’s tuner to be sent “upstream” to the A/V receiver. That means you can enjoy television programs in magnificent Onkyo sound. HDMI also supports 3D video and numerous other high-resolution formats, and has the added advantage of reducing cable clutter for a cleaner and simpler install.
Direct Digital iPod/iPhone Connection for Cleaner Sound
The receiver’s front-panel USB port lets you play MP3 and AAC stored in an iPod/iPhone, and MP3, WMA, AAC, and FLAC audio files stored on a flash-memory device, using the system’s own remote for track selection and playback. Your music will also sound much cleaner and clearer, as the audio signal is transported in digital rather than analog form through the direct digital connection.
WRAT (Wide Range Amplifier Technology) Gives Even Higher Fidelity
WRAT is a suite of innovative technologies Onkyo developed to improve signal-to-noise ratios, and enhance the fidelity of amplified audio. The technologies work to reduce noise across the frequency range, guaranteeing a well-balanced performance even with the most dynamic soundtracks. It achieves this by employing a low negative-feedback amplifier design; using “closed” ground-loop circuitry to cancel noise from individual circuits; and by ensuring high instantaneous-current capability to cancel reflex energy and impedance fluctuations from the speakers. The WRAT design has helped make Onkyo AVRs the firm favorite among discerning audio enthusiasts, and is incorporated for the first time on the entry-level TX-SR313.
