Redefining Entry-Level Packaged Home Theater with HDMI 1.4 and HD AudioIf you’re looking for a future-ready receiver-and-speaker package that won’t break the bank, your search may be over. Meet Onkyo’s 5.1-channel HT-S3300--a system packed with so much advanced technology that it redefines entry-level home theater. As with every A/V receiver in Onkyo’s 2010 line-up, you get the latest iteration of HDMI—version 1.4. Three HDMI inputs let you hook up your Blu-ray player, game console, and cable/satellite box--all of which can be output via a single cable to your connected high-resolution display. Not only is HDMI 1.4 compatible with next-generation 3-D video, it also enables a convenient Audio Return Channel. On top of this, the HT-S3300 supports lossless HD audio formats from Dolby and DTS--previously the domain of mid-range to high-end receivers only. The HT-S3300 also provides an overlaid On-Screen Display function for easy adjustment of settings, a Universal Port for one-cable connection of peripherals, Audyssey equalization, four gaming audio modes, and a fully immersive, beautifully balanced 5.1-channel speaker set.
Three 3-D ready HDMI 1.4 inputs with easy audio setup
The three HDMI 1.4 inputs on the HT-S3300’s A/V receiver let you simultaneously connect high-definition sources such as a Blu-ray player, a gaming console, and a cable/satellite tuner. A single output then sends a pristine signal to your connected high-resolution display. As the latest version of this connector, HDMI 1.4 adds the exciting possibilities of 3-D video and an Audio Return Channel. 3-D video is the next big thing in home entertainment, with movie, game, and broadcast content on the increase and 3-D compatible TVs on the near horizon. This future-ready system also offers the convenience of an Audio Return Channel via HDMI. Audio content received directly by your HDTV’s tuner can be sent “upstream” to the A/V receiver, without the need for a separate S/PDIF audio cable.
Decoding of High-Definition Surround-Sound Codecs
The HT-S3300’s A/V receiver can decode Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio, two lossless formats that enable delivery of a bit-for-bit soundtrack that's identical to the studio master track. These codecs, previously available only on mid-range and high-end receivers, take advantage of the high data capacity of the Blu-ray format.
192 kHz/24-Bit Burr-Brown DACs Improve Jitter Performance to Deliver Clearer Sound
High-quality Burr-Brown DACs (PCM1690) work to optimize analog audio performance on the HT-S3300’s A/V receiver. These DACs perform advanced 24-bit signal processing and support sampling rates of up to 192 kHz, all while displaying high resistance to clock jitter and offering a 113 dB dynamic range.
EX.Bass for Deeper, More Dynamic Bass
Onkyo’s proprietary EX.Bass function boosts low-frequency output at two separate points: 40 Hz and 80 Hz. At low volumes, EX.Bass creates a deeper, more dynamic bass sound for your music and movies. When the volume is turned up high, the boosted bass automatically returns to normal levels.
A Suite of Audyssey Technologies for the Ideal Listening Environment
Audyssey EQ automates the speaker-configuration process and employs a pre-set correction filter for each speaker, reducing the acoustic interference caused by a typical listening room. Audyssey Dynamic Volume automatically compensates for annoying volume fluctuations in audio content--for example, during jarring commercial breaks--all while optimizing the dynamic range of your sound. Finally, 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.
Convenient Overlaid On-Screen Display via HDMI
Changing your A/V receiver’s settings is now more seamless than ever, thanks to Onkyo’s new overlaid On-Screen Display (OSD) feature. 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 switch back and forth from a blank screen background.
Onkyo HTP380: A Powerful, Full-Range 5.1-Channel Speaker SystemOnkyo has included a capable 5.1-channel speaker suite that is perfectly matched to the HT-R380 receiver. You get two SKF-380 full-range bass reflex front-channel speakers, one SKC-380 center-channel speaker, and two SKR-380 surround speakers. Each of these speakers come equipped with one full-range 3-1/4" woofer that is rated at 120-Watts. This package also includes one SKW-380 8" downward-firing bass reflex subwoofer, which is rated at 130-Watts of maximum input power.

First, let me say that I am by no means an expert "audiophile", but I did a lot of research before deciding on the Onkyo HT-S3300. I purchased it through Tiger Direct as Amazon would have it, then not have it and state "This item has not yet been released". Anyway, the first thing I noticed is the box is labled HT-S3300(B) and does state for Blu-ray. Not sure if any other 3300 models exist but this is the one I received. Now, for the review:
The receiver is a REPEATER...not pass through. I also called Onkyo tech support prior to delivery and a courteous and professional lady stated all 2010 models are now REPEATERS. So, for some prior models (3200, 5200) you don't need a seperate audio cable (this of course is a personal preference, if you choose, for the 2010 models, or based upon the types of cables you presently have). Audio and video is done via HDMI. It is also HDMI 1.4a(supporting 3D video and Audio Return Channel) (per Onkyo description). As this could create confusion for some (it did for me) I needed to verify the receiver is a repeater. The wording on many electronics' product descriptions (Sony is guilty, too) is unclear. Make sure you do your research since you plan on spending your money and know and learn a little about what you are purchasing.
Set up was about 30-45 min (reading and learning manual). Each of the speaker wires provided are color coded for easy hook up. Now, in the process of research I learned about gauge size. The ones provided do appear very thin, but I did a quick hook-up and will replace the the wires with a 14 or 16 guage.
Every piece of equipment provided is black and nicely put together. For some, aesthetics are very important...for others, sound and functionality.Read more ›
When I saw the 2010 Onkyo systems, I initially pre-ordered HT-S5300 but it being not released yet gave me some time to research and take a close look at ht-s3300 as well. After looking at its specs, I decided to give it a try and I am glad I did as it saved me $200. I am also happier with smaller and less-intrusive speakers of ht-s3300 compared to 5300 and having two less speakers to wire across the room. Now let me try to give you some opinion on the system and its sound.
First I must say, it is good looking system with shiny black speakers and a boxy but classy looking receiver. Its sound is much better than I expected especially it being an entry level system. Instead of going over all its specs, I will try to answer most people would have in mind and also list the important pros and cons.
-Has a HDMI repeater and do the switching, so you only need HDMI cables without extra audio cables.
-Supports all the new formats and it does pretty good job at decoding HD audio formats.
-I was initially hesitant about the audyssey audio correction system it is equipped with since it doesn't have a microphone for auto calibration. However, it turns out that the audyssey system is factory calibrated to the specifications of the speaker set it comes with and it does pretty good job of acoustic correction. The only adjustment I needed to do was measuring the speaker distances to the optimal listening area and manually entering it to the receiver set-up.Read more ›
Onkyo looks really nice and the piano black speakers were a great addition to our living room. I hooked up the Comcast HD DVR, Sony bdp-s360 blueray player and a Philips dvp3982 multi-region dvd player to the receiver through HDMI cables and connected it to my Sony Bravia kdl-52w5100. On screen menu is very helpful and I've done the setup fairly quickly with level calibration and speaker distances. I have Audyssey and Dynamic EQ turned on and I'm using the Dynamic volume on Light setting. There are a bunch of different surround settings you can use and since personal preferences change, I won't list them. Sound is incredible! We have a medium sized living room and, in my opinion, the passive subwoofer is doing a much better job than the active woofer of the Yamaha I mentioned above. I watched Hulk on blue ray and couldn't turn on the volume above 40 as the windows were rattling.
You can also turn on the Audio TV Out option on and only use your TV's speakers if you don't want to use the receiver's speakers for some reason.Read more ›
