Product Description

Color: Silver

From the Manufacturer

A Home Theater Bonanza of Audio-Video and Satellite Radio Prowess Without sophisticated engineering know-how and design, combining multichannel surround sound with video processing capabilities in A/V receivers presents some formidable challenges, particularly in the mid-level price range.The TX-SR575S balances high-performance audio (for movies and music) with HDMI 1080p pass-thru and component video switching (with upconversion) capability for every video resolution available.With connectivity to both XM Radio and SIRIUS Satellite Radio, the TX-SR575S can give you access to the most varied and exhilarating radio this country has ever seen. Not simply content with giving you multi-dimensional entertainment, the TX-SR575S comes equipped with Audyssey 2EQ room-correction technology that enables you to accurately align sound output with the contours of your home.

Sirius Ready
SIRIUS brings access to over 130 digital-quality channels, including 69 channels of 100% commercial-free music, plus exclusive channels of sports, news, talk, entertainment, traffic, weather and data. This model has a SIRIUS jack on its rear that connects to an optional SIRIUSConnect home tuner kit. This kit includes everything you need for easy home installation, including the SIRIUSConnect receiver, indoor/outdoor antenna with 21-foot cable, and an AC power adaptor. SIRIUS has three powerful satellites situated directly above the U.S., enabling coast-to-coast coverage with high elevation angles. With a "clear line of sight" to your home, your signal is unimpeded by buildings, trees or objects that might block conventional satellite signals.

XM Ready
XM has introduced exciting new products called the XM Mini-Tuner and Home Dock (both sold seperately) which replaces the Connect-and-Play antenna. The XM Mini-Tuner and Home Dock work with any XM-Ready product — plus the Mini-Tuner enables subscribers to easily move a single subscription from one product to another. Customers that have already invested in an XM Connect-and-Play antenna need not worry. The Connect-and-Play will still work with compatible XM Ready Home Stereo systems.

192/24 digital-to-analog converters
Costly, extremely powerful digital-to-analog converters , that not only boast a dynamic range of 120 dB, they process information faster and are virtually resistant to clock jitter, to ensure the best possible performance from DVD-Audio, DVD-Video and audio CD.

Audyssey 2EQ to Counteract Room Acoustic Problems
Loudspeakers are specifically designed to deliver sound without distortion or coloration. Nevertheless, walls, furniture and other objects reflect and absorb sound, creating distortion that is unique to your own space. To counter this, Audyssey 2EQ corrects problems both in frequency response and in the time domain (where most of the problems lie), across the entire listening area. The results are immediately obvious—a clear, precise and natural sound.

DTS-ES 96/24 Neo6
There are two DTS-ES (Extended Surround) formats: DTS-ES Discrete 6.1 and DTS-ES Matrix 6.1. The DTS-ES Discrete 6.1 format is, as the name implies, a 6.1-channel system with a discrete back surround channel, while DTS-ES Matrix 6.1, like Dolby Digital Surround EX, provides a matrix-encoded back surround channel. There’s also DTS Neo:6, which derives a 6-channel surround output from a stereo soundtrack, and regular DTS, which, like Dolby Digital, is a discrete 5.1-channel system, but which uses less compression than Dolby Digital. Receivers carrying the "96/24" designation are able to decode a new high-resolution audio format, DTS-96/24. This breakthrough allows for high quality, 5.1 channel audio encoded at 96kHz/24-bit resolution to be stored on a DVD-Video disc (or the DVD-Video portion of a DVD-Audio disc). This format is compatible with all DVD players, with those able to pass a 96kHz signal providing the highest quality output (DTS-96/24 is also backwards compatible with older 48kHz DVD player models).

HDMI
HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) This high-bandwidth interface supports not only brilliant digital video, but digital audio as well. Up to 5 Gbps of data—more than twice what’s needed for a high-definition movie with surround sound—can be handled, with room for future requirements. All this data is kept in the digital domain, as there are no D/A or A/D conversions needed, to ensure the highest sound and video quality available.

HDMI is fully backward compatible with PCs,displays and consumer electronics devices incorporating the Digital Visual Interface (DVI) standard. Both HDMI and DVI were pioneered by Silicon Image and are based on TMDS®, Silicon Image's powerful, high-speed, serial link technology. HDMI supports standard, enhanced, or high-definition video, plus multi-channel digital audio on a single cable. It transmits all ATSC HDTV standards and supports 8-channel digital audio, and with 5 Gbps of bandwidth, HDMI can accommodate future enhancements and requirements. Because HDMI was designed specifically for consumer electronics applications, it offers an array of additional consumer enhancements. As digital content can manifest itself in a variety of sizes, resolutions and formats, HDMI-enabled systems will automatically configure to display content in the most effective format. In addition, HDMI enables a single remote point and click, allowing manufacturers to deliver home theater systems that automatically configure from a single command from a remote control -- turning on or off the components necessary to view a DVD, listen to a CD, or watch cable or satellite TV.

Component Video Upconversion
Converts incoming composite & S-Video signals (like a VCR to S-Video equipped TV) all the way to Component on most models. A Time-Base Correction circuit prevents picture distortion due to instabilities in the video source signal.

WRAT (Wide Range Amp Technology
Imagine turning up the volume and filling your entertainment room with noise-free, impressively powerful, true-to-life sound. That's the benefit of Wide Range Amplifier Technology. Originally developed for our most expensive high-end amplifiers to handle the sonic demands of today's digital age, you'll now find WRAT even in our lowest-priced A/V receivers. The WRAT family of technologies includes a broader frequency range with lower noise entering the signal path – perfectly suited for new high resolution DVD-Audio and SACD formats.

7.1 Multichannel Inputs
The emergence of HD-DVD and Blu-ray discs promises to bring unparalleled realism to home theater. Dolby and DTS have each developed improved audio formats to be encoded on these new DVD discs that will superbly complement the latest in highdefinition video. By connecting a player compatible with these new audio codecs to an Onkyo A/V receiver equipped with 7.1 multichannel inputs, you will be able to experience extreme sonic clarity from these new discs, while retaining the full use of the receiver’s other onboard codecs.

Theater-Dimensional
You can experience the excitement of surround sound from as few as two ordinary speakers. Onkyo's exclusive Theater-Dimensional circuitry takes the complexity out of conventional surround-sound setups and lets you experience the excitement of surround sound from as few as two ordinary speakers. Want more? Theater-Dimensional's unique multi-speaker modes let you place up to five speakers conveniently by the TV, for the most realistic virtual-surround sound possible.

CinemaFILTER
The tonal balance of a film soundtrack can be edgy and bright when played back over audio equipment in your home—this is because film soundtracks are designed to be played back in large theaters, using commercial equipment. Onkyo has developed its own solution that restores the correct tonal balance of a movie soundtrack in the smaller environs of your home theater.

Dolby Digital EX / Pro-Logic IIx
Home theater realism reaches new heights with the creation of Dolby Digital EX. By adding a matrix-encoded surround back channel derived from the existing discrete left and right surround channels, the lack of rear surround in 5.1 channel is eliminated. The result - a fuller 360º experience is created…even from 5.1-channel DVD releases. Best results are obtained when Dolby Digital EX is used with movie soundtracks recorded with Dolby Digital Surround EX. Pro-Logic IIx is the latest improvement on the original Pro-Logic and subsequent Pro-Logic II standards. Pro-Logic IIx adds post-processing to 5.1 channel and stereo signals, creating a realistic 7.1 channel surround environment from 5.1 channel movies and stereo sources, such as CD, Tape, FM Radio.

NeuralSurround
Neural Surround represents the latest advancement in surround technology developed for music and is adopted by XM Satellite Radio for digital radio broadcast of surround recordings and live events in surround sound. Neural Surround employs psychoacoustic frequency domain processing which allows delivery of a more detailed sound stage with superior channel separation and localization of audio elements. System playback is scalable from 5.1 to 7.1 multi channel surround playback.

RI (Remote Interactive)
With Onkyo’s exclusive RI (Remote Interactive) system capability, you can integrate and operate all compatible components through a single remote control. What’s more, RI capability enables you to simply connect the iPod® to your receiver through Onkyo’s RI Dock for the iPod (DS-A1). Your iPod effectively becomes another Onkyo component from which you can relish a fuller sound that just can’t be experienced through headphones. RI capability will also give you remote operability of your iPod for hands-off control over your digital music.

Before purchasing this receiver, I did my research, trying to find a receiver with HDMI capability, 7.1 sound, 80 - 100 watts (this one outputs 80 watts per channel which is plenty for me) for under $500. This is the best choice on the market! Here's some information you may find useful.

This receiver has 2 HDMI inputs and 1 HDMI output (i.e. to an HD TV). I have an "upconvert" DVD player (changes 480i format DVD to 1080i video resolution) attached via HDMI (video), and a digital optical (audio) cable. I have a second DVD attached as the "VCR", using composite video cables and a digital coax (audio). I use the second DVD player to play CDs. Both can be programmed in the setup of the receiver, so that the SR575 knows which cables are used for which inputs. The sound is very clear. Make sure you use the microphone to auto calibrate the speakers after your system is in place. It takes 10-15 minutes and is automatic, just start the setup and it takes care of itself. The sound will be much better than sound out-of-the box, since it calibrates for your room acoustics. Once the setup is completed, you will like the results...there are several "listening modes" that you can try out to see what sounds best in your room.

Here are a few caveats that I learned about after I purchased the receiver....

1. If you have a phonograph (turntable), then you need a pre-amp (can be purchased from Amazon for about $40). Connect the left/right RCA cables from the turntable to the pre-amp, then from the pre-amp into one of the inputs in the receiver (I use the "tape" input for my turntable since I do not have a tape deck attached - which means I program the setup of the "tape" player in the receiver for my turntable - it's simple to do).

Overall the Onyko tx-sr575 is a nice receiver. It received a recommended buy from Home Theater Magazine who I highly respect. The few minor complaints are that the remote buttons are very small and the volume has to be turned way up, ~ 20, to be heard.

However, for $299, it's a great buy and I would buy it again after having it for 6 weeks of testing. The sound from the system is crystal clear. Also, you can choose either 5.1 or 7.1 depending on how many spoeakers you want to use.

I bought this AVR, Onkyo TX-SR575, at the recent (04/08) price of $219. I have it hooked up with HDMI from cable box to AVR and HDMI from AVR to TV. I have the TV volume turned off and play the audio though the AVR 5.1 system. I added Sirius radio using the Sirius SC-H1 receiver through the little din connector. Power is not provided through this connector so you need to use the power adapter which comes with the Sirius receiver. I have my old Dual turntable plugged into the CD IN connection but I did have to put a turntable preamp inline here. I used the Pyle PP-999 Phono Turntable Pre-Amp from Amazon. My wife has some wireless speakers that she loves to carry out on the patio. I plug the transmitter for the wireless speakers into the TAPE OUT connection. At the moment I have a plain vanilla DVD player plugged in using component video and optical for audio. I will upgrade this later and use the 2nd HDMI input to the AVR. The speaker calibration process is easy and takes about 10 minutes. In my case the calibration makes a big difference. My center speaker is hidden behind some decorative knick knacks and calibration makes a big difference in the sound. I don't pretend to be an audio expert. All I can say is it sounds great to me and was very easy to get everything hooked up and working properly. Oh, the remote that comes with the TX-SR575 controls all of my other components for normal operation. If I need to change the setup of one of the other components I may have to get out that particular remote but for normal input/output, channel, DVD, DVR, volume and Sirius radio the TX-SR575 remote does it all. At the current price I think this AVR is a great bargain and I am very happy with it.

I was disappointed in the fact that the audio is not being transmitted to the receiver through the hdmi cables. It requires seperate cables for digital audio to be processed, although it processes audio through hdmi to my hdtv???. When I hooked up my upconvert dvd player through the receiver, I receive an error message on some dvd's that it's format is not supported by the receiver. So in essence, I cannot even use the hdmi ports on the receiver, the video goes straight to the tv and I use coax cables to the receiver. I also experience an audio "drop out" that Onkyo's website, if I remember right, refers to as a problem that they are working on with Dolby... On a positive side, I really like the auto speaker configuration, and the sound of the unit is good..The price was extremely good.

The first strike against this is overheating. Part of that is my fault, I stuffed it high in my cabinet without much ventilation. When the sun hit the cabinet glass it would heat up until the sound started to distort significantly. I lowered it in the cabinet and gave more ventilation and that seems to have taken care of it.

I'm not using a sub so I can't comment on cross-over and tuning features, although I've scanned through them and they seem comprehensive and feature packed. I haven't used the satellite radio features. The remote works great and programed really easily.

The sound is really good. I based my purchase largely on a pro review where he called this receiver his favourite budget receiver for its good sound reproduction. That's really what I wanted from a receiver. Turns out he was right. That's why I've rated it so high (4/5). I rarely rate products this high unless they really impress me. It doesn't get a 5/5 because it has to be truly amazing to get that, even in this price range. And I'm assuming the subwoofer would work flawlessly.
