TX-SR600 Home Theater Receiver

The TX-SR600 6-channel A/V Receiver adds rear-center surround capability with a sixth amplifier channel, and Dolby Digital EX and DTS-ES decoding. The unit also features sophisticated HDTV capable 50 MHz component video switching, improved digital processing for the left and right speaker channels, an on-screen display, and improved bass management for digital signals. Many of the latest DVD releases contain Dolby Digital EX and DTS-ES soundtracks, which include a center surround channel for 6.1 surround sound. The TX-SR600 is compatible with these new formats, as well as Dolby Digital and DTS 5.1 encoded titles. The receiver also includes Dolby Pro Logic II processing, which can derive a satisfying multichannel experience from two-channel sources. Because of the importance of the left and right channels in stereo and multichannel operation, these channels now feature 192kHz/24-bit DACs for greater resolution. The TX-SR600 has 50 MHz component video switching, which allows the high definition video signal to use the receiver's source switching without degrading video quality. This receiver simplifies home theater connections and with its wide array of audio and video inputs and outputs, it is designed to function as the centerpiece for any home theater system. There is even an optical digital output for the addition of an outboard processor or digital-ready recorder. For convenient connection of portable devices, the front panel has composite and S-video inputs, and an optical digital input jack. The Onkyo TX-SR600's six internal power amplifiers feature high-current, low-impedance discrete output devices, and the receiver is capable of a continuous power output of 110 Watts per channel into a 6 ohm load. Onkyo's WRAT (Wide Range Amplifier Technology) gives the power stage a linear frequency response from 10 Hz to 100 kHz to handle the most demanding audio sources such as SACD and DVD-Audio. The on-screen display and dot-matrix fluorescent front panel display make setup and operation of the receiver easy and fast. Speaker configuration and distance settings allow for simple optimization of any speaker arrangement. With the new adjustable crossover on the subwoofer pre-out channel, the LFE channel signal can be cutoff at 80, 100, or 120 Hz, depending on the subwoofer used. The sophisticated digital processing circuitry also includes 13 distinct DSP modes, as well as Onkyo's CinemaFILTER, which corrects for the 'brightness' that soundtracks designed for large theaters often display when played in the home. The unit's preprogrammed/learning remote control makes system programming and integration simple and convenient.The receiver's high quality AM/FM tuner section has 40 random presets, and FM automatic scan tuning.
