The Onkyo TX-SR607 - A Stunning Balance of High-Definition Formats, Upscaling Video, and All-Round Versatility
The TX-SR607 raises the bar once again in the competitive world of mid-range home theater. With HDMI 1.3a inputs for up to six components, it's ready to handle all your high-definition video and audio needs. Whether it's a Blu-ray Disc player, a cable or satellite box, or a gaming console, your video signals will be traveling first class. Lower-resolution analog video signals, meanwhile, can be upscaled

to 1080i and fine-tuned by Faroudja DCDi Edge. HDMI version 1.3a also transports the master-quality HD audio formats, DTS-HD Master Audio and Dolby® TrueHD.
The very latest Dolby technology, Dolby® Pro Logic® IIz, enhances the spatial sensation of music, movies, and video games by letting you incorporate front height channels. The TX-SR607 packs an array of convenient connectivity options, allowing you to incorporate HD Radio, iPod® and MP3 players, SIRIUS Satellite Radio, and more. Four specialized gaming modes, Audyssey room-correction technologies, and Zone 2 capability add the gloss to what is a phenomenal all-round package. 1080p Video and High-Def Surround Sound via HDMI 1.3a
Incorporating HDMI version 1.3a, along with advanced processing capabilities, the TX-SR607 makes for a powerful A/V control center. Five rear-side HDMI inputs, along with a convenient front-side one, enable connection of up to six components, including Blu-ray Disc players, gaming consoles, and set-top boxes. The TX-SR607 can receive and switch high-def media, such as HD broadcasts and Blu-ray Discs, and send a pure digital output to your HDTV. What's more, all multichannel audiofrom bit-for-bit streams to standard Dolby Digitalcan be input via HDMI for processing on the TX-SR607. HDMI version 1.3a enables CEC (Consumer Electronics Control) and offers greater bandwidth to deal with higher resolutions, 36-bit Deep Color, and high frame rates.
Dolby Pro Logic IIz for a 3-Dimensional Sound Field
Control at your fingertips
Dolby Pro Logic IIz offers the proven quality of Dolby Pro Logic IIx and adds a new vertical dimension to your home theater soundstage. As with previous versions of Dolby Pro Logic, this latest version delivers a convincing surround-sound experience from any movie or music source--even a stereo one. On the TX-SR607, Dolby Pro Logic IIz enables you to incorporate two "front height" speakers into your surround-sound set-up as an alternative to the two surround back speakers. The front height channels carry ambient, non-directional audio that helps immerse you even more deeply into your movies and games. With Dolby Pro Logic IIz, rain seems to burst from clouds right above you, and helicopters fly realistically overhead A Full Range of the Latest High-Definition Surround-Sound Codecs
The TX-SR607 handles Dolby® TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio --two lossless decoding formats that enable delivery of a bit-for-bit soundtrack identical to the studio master track. Both codecs take advantage of the high data capacity of the Blu-ray Disc (BD) format. Another BD-related technology is DTS-HD Express, which provides access to secondary audio features. The TX-SR607 also handles two "lossy" audio formats: Dolby® Digital Plus and DTS-HD High Resolution Audio. Dolby Digital Plus is designed to accompany high-definition video delivered via disc media, broadcasts, and online content. DTS-HD High Resolution Audio, meanwhile, offers a greater bit rate, a higher sampling rate, and more channels than the core DTS technology. A Suite of Audyssey Technologies for the Ideal Listening Environment
The TX-SR607 has three Audyssey technologies to help create the most suitable listening environment for your home. The first is Audyssey 2EQ for Room Acoustic Correction. The TX-SR607 uses Audyssey 2EQ to counter distortion created by walls, furniture, and other objects. This technology detects speaker distance, and then sets levels, delays, and crossovers, while also measuring room acoustics. Compared to one-position room correction systems, Audyssey 2EQ covers a much wider listening area. Moreover, it corrects problems in both frequency response and time domain (where most of the problems lie) across the entire listening area. The results are immediately obvious--a clear, well-balanced, and natural sound.
The second is Audyssey Dynamic Volume control. This technology allows you to set the volume level that you want and keep it there, without having to constantly adjust it. By anticipating sudden spikes and dips in the audio soundtrack and compensating for them in real time, Audyssey Dynamic Volume ensures consistent volume levels, regardless of the content you're enjoying. Thanks to Audyssey Dynamic Volume, quiet dialogue is easier to pick up, loud passages retain their impact, and commercials are less intrusive.
The third is Audyssey Dynamic EQ for Loudness Correction. In professional sound studios, music and movies are recorded at reference levels far louder than what is typical for home listening. As a result, when you play audio content at a low volume on a standard home theater receiver, the bass disappears, voices change in timbre, and the surround soundstage loses definition. To counteract this audio deterioration, Audyssey Dynamic EQ continuously adjusts frequency response and the surround soundstage loses definition. To counteract this audio deterioration, Audyssey Dynamic EQ continuously adjusts frequency response and surround levels to produce the ideal balance for a given volume level.
