Onkyo just announced today the release of two new “home-theater-in-a-box” (HTiB) systems for those wanting to indulge but on a budget. The systems feature the latest HDMI connectivity standard with support for 3D video and lossless audio all built to exacting standards for the ultimate music, movies, and gaming experience in your home.
The higher end model HT-S5400 7.1-channel HTiB offers two extra audio channels for more audio control to enhance movie and gaming ambience. The audio channels can support Dolby Pro Logi IIz along with having superior audio DACs. The model also features a front panel USB port for iPod or iPhone connectivity.
The more affordable 5.1-channel HT-S3400 model omits a few features including the USB port, subwoofer pre-out, and Audyssey 2EQ.
On top of this, Onkyo also announces a new Remote Interactive Dock for iPod/iPhone, the DS-A4, which provides audio, video outputs, charging, and full function remote control.
The Onkyo HT-S5400 is priced at $599, the HT-S3400 at $379, and the DS-A4 at $139. All will be available in April.
