Onkyo Unveils New Home Theater Gear
 
 

Onkyo is one of the big names in home theater gear and they have all sorts of offerings. I have one of its home theater in a box system in my media room and love the gear. It sounds good, looks good, and was very easy to set up. If you are in the market for a new home theater system Onkyo has just unveiled a bunch of new gear.

Onkyo has new premium home theater in a box systems including the HT-S6400. This system has a new 5.1 channel speaker set with a powered sub all with matching glossy black cases. The speakers will be available alone too in a SKS-HT690 package. The S6400 will ship in July for $699. Onkyo also has other systems including the HT-S7400, HT-S8400, and HT-S9400THX that will ship in May. They will sell for $799, $899, and $1099 respectively.

Onkyo also has a new receiver called the TX-NR709. It will ship late this month and it is a 7.2 channel receiver. It supports network connectivity and has compatibility for Windows 7 and DLNA. It has a front USB port, WRAT amps, and lots of audio format support with Dolby and DTS among others. It has dual subwoofer outputs and Marvell Qdeo 4K upscaling. It will sell for $899.

Onkyo has also pulled its first affordable Blu-ray player out of the shadows called the BD-SP309.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
