Those familiar with the name Onkyo think high end when they hear the name, and they are right. Typically Onkyo is associated with home theater products costing thousands of dollars. Today Onkyo is launching a new line of home theater in a box system consisting of two products that are affordable, I’m talking as low cost as some of the junk you find at Wal-Mart.

The two systems are the HT-SR600 and the HT-SR700 which are both 5.1 surround sound systems. Each system uses a powerful sub woofer and a set of tonally matched two-way satellite speakers along with a high power multi-channel A/V receiver complete with component video switching and complete surround sound processing.

Connectivity wise both systems have three component video inputs and one output able to switch 1080i/720p HD video sources without picture degradation. There are also three A/V inputs and two outputs with component and S-video connections plus three optical and one coaxial digital audio input. For easy set up the 5.1 multi-channel analog inputs are color coded and the receiver is compatible with both Dolby Digital Plus and DTS-HD formats found on HD DVD and Blu-Ray media. Each system uses five of Onkyo’s new satellite speakers with the front three speakers utilizing 3 ¼ inch cone woofers and ¾ inch ceramic tweeters. The surround speakers use the same design as the front but only use one woofer.
