HT-RC270 7.2-Channel 3-D Ready Network A/V Receiver
 

Superb Mid-Range Versatility with the Networking Edge

If you’re ready to take your first step into the world of networked home entertainment, let the HT-RC270 be your guide. This versatile A/V receiver sports a handy Ethernet connection that lets you enjoy streaming PC audio and internet radio in the comfort of your living room.

When it comes to connectivity, the HT-RC270 handles virtually anything you throw its way. You get six 3D-ready HDMI® 1.4a inputs (one on the front-side); 7.1-channel analog audio inputs for legacy components; analog RGB inputs for PC video; a Universal port for Onkyo peripherals; and a front-side USB input for Pod® models and flash memory devices. Onkyo has a well-earned reputation for bringing advanced audio features to a wider audience. In the case of the high-value HT-RC270, that means low-jitter Burr-Brown DACs; lossless HD audio from DTS and Dolby; Audyssey MultEQ® room-correction; and the expanded surround dimensions of Audyssey DSX™ and Dolby® Pro Logic® IIz. All of this connectivity and processing power earns the HT-RC270 the quality assurance of THX® Select2 Plus™.
