Product Description

Product Description

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 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. Connections Check. Three HDMI 1.4a inputs let you hook up a Blu-ray player, console, and cable/sat tuner. HDMI 1.4a is not only compatible with upcoming 3D video, it also lets you run an Audio Return Channel from your display’s tuner back to the receiver. Audio processing Check. The HTX-22HDX handles HD formats from DTS and Dolby, offers four distinct audio modes for gaming and includes Onkyo’s very own Theater-Dimensional. The latter creates an immersive and convincing surround effect through just 2.1 channels. Meantime, a new on-screen display makes it easier to adjust settings on the fly, so you can get back to 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.

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.

What can i say its awesome.
I have an older Panny commercial plasma which has no speakers.
Last week i fried my Samsung HT system (don't ask) which was the only audio out in my set up.
Did a quick web search for budget minded audio solution and was leaning in sound bar direction, and than i stumbled on this gem. Feature set this thing provides will cover all my needs for foreseeable future. Tone of inputs and video outputs, ARC, and expendability to 3.1 or 5.1 are great. Set up was quick and easy, it was up and running in 10min + another 10 for sound set up.

The sound:
Now this is where i was going to rate it 4 stars or even 3 stars (i have to say i was a bit disappointed at first)
In 2.1 set-up its sounds OK, not great, but ok... i fine tuned it, but i was not getting exactly what i wanted.
Also in 2.1 you do not get most of the systems audio processing features.
The biggest issue was dialog being washed out by FX sounds. Watching movie in the evening with kids asleep i constantly had to adjust the sound... NOT GOOD.
I did my research and picked up Yamaha NS-C210BL center channel speaker (took a while to find 6ohm speaker, Onkyo is rated at 6ohm don't forget that, 4ohm can possibly fry it, 8ohm will cut power output in half which is already on the low side at 25w per channel)

OHHH what a difference center channel made. IT sounds perfect, dialog is full and easy to follow even in action heavy scenes. With center channel attached i now get most of the audio processing features. Vol set 55-60 it feels my large living room with double height sealing with out any issues.

If you have this running in 2.1 drop everything and go by center channel, you'll be blown away.
