Home electronics company Onkyo is set to bring us two new entry level A/V receivers which are each available in black or silver finishes. The 80 watt-per-channel TX-SR576 and 75 watt-per-channel TX-SR506 are priced at around $480 and $380 respectively.
These new Onkyo A/V receivers offer dual source “powered zone 2″ capability, meaning the receiver’s rear surround amplifier channels to power stereo speakers in a second room while still listening to 5.1-channel sound in the main zone. They also both offer support for Audyssey’s new Dynamic EQ loudness correction technology.
Other features of the TX-SR576 and TX-SR506, depending upon the model, include front channel bi-amplification, HDMI 1.2a with single-cable connectivity, decoding for Dolby Digital Plus and special Onkyo technology to improve the quality of compressed audio such as MP3 and AAC. Both will be available in April.Home Theater, Onkyo, Receivers
