Product Details

Onkyo Black 7.1 Channel Home Theater System, Model HTS5500

This finely crafted 7.1-channel system features Dolby® Pro Logic® IIz to incorporate two extra Front Height channels. With the HT-S5500, you can enjoy a more realistic, three-dimensional movie or gaming experience over a standard 5.1 setup. The system’s powerful receiver hits all the right notes, featuring a discrete WRAT amplifier for clear, detailed sound; four HDMI® inputs and one output to handle 3D video and high-resolution audio; a USB por t for direct digital iPod®/iPhone® connection; and an HDMI-enabled overlaid on-screen display for stress-free system navigation. Likewise, the two-way front and center speakers are fitted with high-quality drivers and tweeters, while an energy-efficient 120 W subwoofer fills out the bottom end. The system is easy to set up right out of the bo x, with Audyssey’s 2EQ room acoustic correction optimizing the sound for your listening space. With its solid build quality, expansive sound, and intelligent feature set, the HT-S5500 offers you a satisfying blend of perf ormance and value.

Key Features:

  • Audio Return Channel and 3D Video via HDMI®
    Four HDMI inputs on the HT-S5500’s receiver allow seamless integration of high-definition devices such as Blu-ray players, cable/satellite tuners, and gaming consoles. HDMI implementation on this receiver also supports an Audio Return Channel, allowing TV audio to be sent upstream to the A/V receiver. That means you can enjoy television programs in magnificent Onkyo sound. HDMI also supports 3D video and other popular high resolution formats
  • Direct Digital iPod®/iPhone® Connection for Cleaner Sound
    The receiver’s front-panel USB port lets you play MP3 and AAC stored on an iPod/iPhone, and MP3, WMA, AAC, and FLAC audio files stored on a flash-memory device using the system’s own remote for track selection and playback. Your music will also sound much cleaner and clearer, as the audio signal is transported in digital form (rather than analog) via the direct digital connection
  • WRAT (Wide Range Amplifier Technology) Delivers Higher Fidelity
    Onkyo’s WRAT concept was developed to improve signalto- noise ratios, and enhance the fidelity of amplified audio. The technologies work to reduce noise across the frequency range, guaranteeing a clear, well-balanced performance. It does this by employing a low negative-feedback amplifier design; using “closed” ground-loop circuitry to cancel noise from individual circuits; and by ensuring high instantaneouscurrent capability to cancel reflex energy and impedance fluctuations from the speakers
  • Dolby® Pro Logic® IIz for a More Enveloping Sound Field
    Pro Logic IIz creates a surround-sound experience from any movie or music source—even a stereo one. Pro Logic IIz also enables you to incorporate two “front height” speakers that carry ambient audio effects for games and movies. Convenient Overlaid On-Screen Display via HDMI The receiver’s overlaid On-Screen Display (OSD) feature makes changing the settings on your A/V receiver quick and easy. On-screen set-up menus appear overlaid on the video image you’re watching. This means you can adjust the settings immediately, without having to stop the program and switch to a different screen to access menus
  • Audyssey Technologies Optimize Home Theater Performance
    The HT-S5500 comes equipped with three sound-enhancing Audyssey technologies. (1) Audyssey 2EQ tailors multi-channel audio for your home theater speaker set-up by measuring three room positions and applying a resolution filter to the satellite speakers to correct for room acoustics. (2) Audyssey Dynamic EQ® maintains a consistent bass response, tonal balance, and surround-sound effect at different volume levels, so you can enjoy the natural dynamics of your content regardless of the volume. (3) Audyssey Dynamic Volume® automatically compensates for volume fluctuations in different audio content—for example, during commercial breaks—while optimizing the dynamic range
  • Quality Speakers for Quality Sound
    A carefully matched Onkyo speaker set delivers clear, dynamic audio reproduction. Hefty two-way front speakers feature a 5½ (12 cm) OMF Diaphragm woofer for fast and accurate mid-range response, plus a balanced-dome tweeter for clean, well-separated highs. The center speaker boasts twin cone woofers and tweeter, while the satellite speakers have a single full-range driver. A powered subwoofer lends impact to games, movies, and music, yet is energy efficient, drawing 80 percent less power than the 2011 model
  • Get More Realistic Action with Four Different Gaming Modes
    Select from four different optimized audio modes to match your gaming content for a highly realistic surround sound experience. Rock, Sports, Action, and RPG game modes will help to bring out the best in any soundtrack, from subtle ambient effects to thundering explosions
