HT-RC260 7.2-Channel Home Theater Receiver
 

Setting New Standards for Affordable Home Theater

While we may define it as an entry-level A/V receiver, the HT-RC260 gives you performance and features that leave class-competitors gasping in its wake. Six of the latest HDMI® 1.4a inputs provide easy connection for all your high-def sources and compatibility with the eye-popping new 3D video format. Another connectivity highlight is a handy Universal Port that allows you to hook up Onkyo peripherals such as a Dock for iPod/iPhone. Meanwhile, if you want to distribute music to another room, the HT-RC260 provides Zone 2 line-outs and speaker outputs. Regardless of their resolution, all video sources can be upscaled to stunning 1080p via HDMI and Faroudja DCDi Cinema™. High-quality Burr-Brown DACs work alongside jitter-cleaning technology and three-stage inverted Darlington

circuitry to minimize distortion and deliver extremely realistic audio for movies, music, and games. The HT-RC260 also offers

compatibility with lossless Dolby and DTS codecs, as well as the expanded surround formats of Audyssey DSX™ and Dolby Pro Logic® IIz. Quality home theater has never been more affordable.
