Product Description

From the Manufacturer

The Ideal Compact Partner for Your Flat-Screen Display

Movies and games look great on today’s widescreen TVs. But let’s face it, the audio from your typical flat-panel display leaves a lot to be desired. That’s where the Onkyo HTX-22HDX steps in. In its basic 2.1-channel configuration, the HTX-22HDX gives you a combo subwoofer and A/V receiver plus two front speakers for stunning mid- and high-range audio. Three HDMI 1.4 inputs let you hook up a Blu-ray player, console, and cable/sat tuner. HDMI 1.4 is not only compatible with upcoming 3-D video, it also lets you run an Audio Return Channel from your display’s tuner back to the receiver. The HTX-22HDX also handles HD formats from DTS and Dolby, offers four distinct audio modes for gaming, and includes Onkyo’s Theater-Dimensional technology that creates an immersive and convincing surround effect through just 2.1 channels. What's more, a new on-screen display makes it easier to adjust settings on the fly, allowing you to jump back into the action sooner.

HDMI 1.4 Support for 3-D Video and Audio Return Channel
The three HDMI 1.4 inputs on the HTX-22HDX let you simultaneously connect high-def 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. HDMI 1.4 also offers the convenience of an Audio Return Channel. 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 HTX-22HDX 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.

VLSC (Vector Linear Shaping Circuitry) for Noise-Free Audio Signals
The HTX-22HDX employs Onkyo’s proprietary VLSC on both front channels to mitigate the effect of signal noise. Used in digital-to-analog conversion, this circuit converts bit data between two discrete sampling points, which are then joined with analog vectors to produce a smooth output wave form. The result is a noiseless, smooth analog signal based on the digital source.

Immersive Surround Sound from Just Two Speakers
Onkyo’s Theater-Dimensional circuitry streamlines the conventional surround-speaker setup by allowing you to experience the excitement of surround sound from as few as two standard speakers. What’s more, it also offers multi-speaker modes that you can use if you augment the HTX-22HDX with extra center and surround speakers. To save space, you can place up to five speakers beside the TV and still enjoy impressively realistic virtual surround sound.

Four Game Modes for More Realistic Action
These four gaming modes create an audio experience with more realism and impact. Select from Rock, Sports, Action, or RPG modes to match your gaming content.

Convenient Overlaid On-Screen Display via HDMI
Changing your A/V receiver’s settings is now more seamless than ever, thanks to the HTX-22HDX’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.

It is easy to set up and is a good quality product with good sound.
Alan
Here goes... - The sound connaisseur will notice right away that the bass response is lacking and power handling is sub-par.
Thor Hang
Sound quality is good, but probably not as good as a Bose Cinemate system.

I think with the 3 HDMI ins and 1 HDMI out, this 2.1 HTIB has helped simplify my wiring needs to enhance the audio for my HDTV in a fairly large living room which was not presenting itself well for me to fit a 5.1 or larger system.

The audio quality is great and I would say better than what you would get from a Bose Cinematesystem. Buy a $ 100 Blu-ray Player to complement this and it even trumps the Bose 3.2.1 system.

The only disadvantage is that I have a Wii hooked up which does not come with an HDMI output and since this sysytem does not have any other I/O for video other than HDMI, I had to buy a RCA to HDMI converter, again through Amazon for about $ 54.00.New 3 RCA Composite S-video R/L Audio to HDMI Converter.

The one negative is that I have not found a comaptible code for the remote to hook it to my Universal Remotes. ONKYO - Hope you are coming out with it shortly. At minimum give us alternative codes for Power On/Off, Vol Up/Down, Input Up/Down. Till Onkyo gives us that, you are tuck with atleast two remotes to handle your gadgets.

I purchased this system for use in my office/study to supplement the Vizio 26"LED Flat Panel I purchased earlier this month. Since the entire setup (TV, speakers/receiver, BluRay and cable box) sit on one corner of the desk/wall unit size is an issue. The small form factor was what attracted me to the unit.

It is extremely simple to set up. The controls work well and the remote is powerful enough to operate the unit, even when placed behind the flat panel. A definite plus for my installation.

Given the size of the unit it is packed with features and has more than enough inputs for the type of home theater setup I am creating.

Where the unit loses points is in the overall sound quality. The subwoofer is decent if configured and tweaked properly. But the speakers provided as the 'Front Channel' are not what I would expect from a system selling in the $300 range. They are housed in a glossy black plastic with a squishy feeling grill. The sound is tinny and lacks any depth at all. Taken on their own merit, the sound they produce is hardly better than the sound from the TV speakers.

I ended up spending an additional $150 and purchased a pair of Bose 161 bookshelf speakers for use in the front channel and put the supplied speakers in the rear channel for surround sound. The performance of the system driving the Bose speakers is what earned the 4 star rating. Now the sound is clean, crisp, and worthy of being called a home theater.

Going back to my original reason for purchasing this specific unit, I would still recommend it if space is at a premium or you don't want to have a lot of separate components to contend with. But be warned that what you're paying for is a receiver/subwoofer combination and expect to have to add better front channel speakers if you want to enjoy better than mediocre sound.

I bought this system because Onkyo is a reputable name in audio equipment (especially receivers) and also based on glowing reviews from amazon and other sites. I originally bought the Sony HT-CT15o soundbar system because I wanted a minimalist, simple setup up system, that's easy on the eyes and sounds great,perhaps phenomenal. I was severly disappointed by the sony soundbar even though it had so many positive reviews on amazon. it didn't sound good to my ears, that's all.

the HTX22HDX is way better than the TV speakers built into my Samsung 40" LED LCDTV but i feel that the system lacks in, crisp clear precise bass that's often produced by wooden subwoofer enclosures. The bass is kind of muffled and lossed.

The subwoofer also has a mini, built in audio receiver with many bells & whistles to tweak the audio settings which were lovely.

The highs and mids are clear and sound good good but I wish the bass was more powerful and precise.

I'm going to return it and put in a probably anothetr $150 for a better sounding system.

This system is much much better than the TV speakers but loses in bass sound performance in my opinion.

I attached this home theater system to my Mac Pro using an optical audio (toslink) cable. iTunes never sounded so dramatically pure. The clarity of sound is amazing and I am more than thrilled at my computer gaming experience. The subwoofer fits comfortably under my desk and the two satellite speakers are perched at the extreme ends of my desk. The Onkyo has the option of attaching a total of 5 satellite speakers to create a 5.1 sound system, but the lack of real estate on my desk would make that configuration cumbersome.

The two main reasons I chose Onkyo was my current experience with a 7.1 home theater system which I absolutely love, and the ability to connect to this system using optical digital cabling. There is no electrical interference from nearby cell phones or other electromagnetic spectrum polluters, and the digital sound is delivered from the source untrammeled to the amplifier.

There are plenty of good reviews here, so I would only add that this Onkyo is more than powerful for BIG rooms. I have it on a 17x34 feet (5x10 meters) room, and it sounds perfectly, so, unless you are some kind of king, it should be enough.
