Onkyo Unveils THX-Certified 3D-Ready Receiver
Onkyo USA said this week that its first 3D-ready home theater receivers will ship this month, with more such products to follow later this spring, all which support the new HDMI v1.4 standard.
The products include the new TX-SR608 7.2-channel THX-Select2 Plus certified receiver, which is the world's first THX-certified 3D-ready receiver. It will arrive in April at an MSRP of $599.
The three A/V receivers and three home-theater-in-a-box systems range in price from $299 to $599. The receivers also include the 5.1-channel SR308 ($299) and the 7.1-channel SR508 ($399). The HTIB systems include the 5.1-channel S3300 ($379) and the 7.1-channel S5300 ($599), as well as the 2.1-channel HTX-22HDX ($349, and shipping in May.)
"Onkyo's 2010 entry-level product line represents a significant jump over last year's line," Paul Wasek, Onkyo USA's marketing manager, said as part of the announcement.
"We are excited to deliver this first wave of 3D capable products. By upgrading to 1.4, even on the least expensive HTiB, we have eliminated all HDMI pass-through products and allowed HD audio formats to be used across the line."
