This receiver is an affordable control center for your entire entertainment system. It has the power to control your speakers and let you listen to high quality sound from your audio sources and provide the decoding necessary for surround sound.
It is also a very capable piece of equipment since it can serve as a switch between your home theater’s audio/video sources. Better yet, it even allows you to tailor the sound of your system to fit your room and listening tastes.
Maximize your Sound Experience
With the Onkyo TX-SR506 Black Home Theater Receiverâ€™s amplification ability, you will be easily pulled into the rich world of high-definition cinema.
Youâ€™ll be swept away by the outstanding audiovisual performance. Playing games, watching TV, and listening to music with your family have never gotten better.
Exceptional surround sound decoding is one of the key features of this versatile device. There’s a wide array of surround sound formats available and, thankfully, this receiver can support decoding for multiple formats. This way, you can enjoy surround sound from nearly any audio/video source. It offers 7.1 channel configuration, which is the best for truly immersing yourself in an excellent movie experience. In addition to the standard front, center, and subwoofer configuration, a 7.1 channel system uses two rear surround speakers and two speakers positioned at the sides so that sound can be captured from nearly every angle.
The Onkyo TX-SR506 Black Home Theater Receiver employs 32-bit digital signal processing and 192 kHz/24-bit digital-to-analog converters on all channels. It can process Dolby Digital EX, Dolby ProLogic IIx, DTS-ES, DTS 96/24, and DTS Neo:6. The receiver also has a user-selectable eight-setting subwoofer crossover adjustment for ideal integration of any subwoofer/satellite speaker system.
But that’s not all. This great value receiver has 3.1 HDMIâ„¢ (High Definition Multimedia Interface) inputs ideal for high-definition media devices like a Blu-ray or HD-DVD player with Onkyoâ€™s dual-source Powered Zone 2 capability. This allows the receiver’s rear surround amplifier channels to power stereo speakers in a second room while still listening to 5.1-channel sound in the main room.
Well suited for use with high-definition displays and source components, it can handle 1080p Blu-ray players, HD set-top boxes, and gaming consoles with amazing proficiency. HDMI pass-through also lets it transmit 1080p video and Deep-Colorâ„¢ data.
If youâ€™re after great sound, you wonâ€™t be disappointed with the Onkyo TX-SR506 Black Home Theater Receiver. Audyssey 2EQ removes much of the distortion caused by speaker enclosures and the typical room environment to produce clearer sound. This technology measures two room positions, uses a basic resolution filter for the satellite speakers and does not apply a filter to the subwoofers. What you get is a significantly improved sound in your living room.
With Audyssey 2EQ and HDMI technologies, the Onkyo TX-SR506 Black Home Theater Receiver is a good value product that offers a 7.1 channel system. The entry-level price tag lets every family experience entertainment right at their home.
