DTS-HD Master Audio
DTS-HD Audio delivers sound quality that matches the clear and vivid images of high-definition video. Blu-ray and HD-DVD discs deliver five times the video resolution of standard DVD and produce images with stunning realism. But that's only half of the story. You need incredible sound to complete the high definition experience and DTS-HD Audio provides the highest quality multi-channel sound possible. Movies come alive with sound as lifelike as the picture, and music becomes as real as a live performance.
Faroudja DCDi CINEMA
The Faroudja name is synonymous with high-quality video processing. The Faroudja technologies incorporated into our 2008 A/V receiver range give you the power to bring out the best from both high-definition and standard-definition video content. The Faroudja DCDi Edge video processor converts interlaced video signals to progressive scan signals and effectively eliminates video artifacts from HDTV images. The Faroudja DCDi Cinema video processor is a more sophisticated version that drastically reduces video noise without sacrificing image quality and sharpness. Both processors can scale standard-definition sources up to 1080i--and DCDi Cinema can additionally upscale to 1080p--for output to HDTVs.
Powered Zone 2
By dedicating a pair of channels on receivers with this capability, you don't need an external amplifier to enjoy an independent stereo audio source in a remote room. For example, on higher-end models this allows for a full 5.1 channel movie to be enjoyed in the home theater, while simultaneously sending a song from a CD (or other source) to speakers in another room.
Audyssey Audio Correction Technology
- Audyssey 2EQ for Room Acoustic Correction: Tailors multichannel audio for your home theater by correcting problems both in frequency response and in the time domain (where most of the problems lie) for a clear, precise, and natural sound.
- Audyssey Dynamic Volume: Maintains the desired listening level for all content while optimizing the dynamic range.
- Audyssey Dynamic EQ for Loudness Correction: Solves the problem of deteriorating sound quality at lower volumes.
HD Radio Ready
Enjoy the crisp clear sound of HD Radio by connecting the optional UP-HT1 module on u-Port capable Onkyo models.
What's in the Box
Onkyo HT-S6300, one subwoofer, one center channel speaker, six satellite speakers, iPod/iPhone dock, remote control (with batteries), operating instructions

Top customer reviews
1. Can up-convert all video inputs to 1080P and output through HDMI. S5300 can't do this.
2. Comes with a setup mic for Audessy to set up speakers automatically.S5300 doesn't have it.
3. Front Speaker is smaller than those of S5300. I hooked them up on wall they look better. The front speakers of S5300 are much bigger and the rear speakers are much smaller.
4. Subwoofer is taller and narrower than that of S5300. To me that is better.
5. Total weight is like 10lb less than S5300.
It is about $100 more than S5300. You can go with S5300 for cheaper if you don't mind those points above.
1st. The technician is out so I can't update you on the status.
2nd. The unit is on the technicians table so it must be getting worked on.
3rd. The technician is out but it's on the table so it's probably close to being done.
4th. Should be ready any day now (from the technician).
5th. The unit needed a special part ordered from Onkyo.
6th. The part was ordered and will arrive Friday the 17th of June.
7th. (Friday the 17th) Looks like the part is back-ordered and we don't have any expected delivery date.
8th. The part is still back ordered and there is nothing we can do about it.
That's when I got furious. I call Onkyo, get hung up on. Call back and speak to a rep in their service department. He kindly asks for my serial number which I read off my claim number. The serial is incorrect. I tell him the womans hand writing is very poor and he asks me what my problem is. I explain the situation, he looks up the unit and notices almost all parts are in stock. In stock! I ask him to call the authorized service center and deal with them directly because I am tired of wasting my time. He takes down the information for my claim and proceeds to tell me he'll call me back.
3 days later I still have not heard from him OR the shop. On the 4th day after I called, I finally hear word from the repair center - the first time they've ever called me! He wasn't nice and explained to me they have to send the unit directly to Onkyo now. Are you serious!? 37 days in your authorized repair center and now they have to ship it directly to Onkyo!? Absurd. Not only that, but they ask me if I have my original box. I explain to them that this unit was part of a 7.1 surround sound set and the box was enormous so I threw it out long ago. Their response, "Well we don't have a box and you don't have yours so we will have to wait for a box to come from Onkyo". Really? You're an authorized repair center and you don't have boxes to ship items back to Onkyo? This is a joke.
Immediately, I call Onkyo back and I don't get anything but an answering machine so I left them a very firm message and asked to call me back. We'll see if I even get a call back. I then decided to take my frustrations public. I 'liked' them on facebook, even though I now hate them, and commented with my complaints on their status. It was immediately deleted and I received a response "We're sorry, we'll look into this for you". I proceeded with another comment asking them to contact me via a 'message' and I will give them my personal contact info. It was deleted. What's the matter, Onkyo, you don't want 50,000 people to know your repair and service centers are jokes? You don't want everyone to know your customer service is subpar to the rest of the industry? I took it to twitter where they can't do anything about what I say.
I will update this review as time progresses. So far I've been without the ability to watch anything on my projector for 37 days and counting. I am very frustrated with this whole situation. I would NEVER buy this system or ANY system from Onkyo if I were you.
EDIT #1: 53 days now and still no replacement receiver. When I questioned their representative about the delay in shipping time I got this as a response:
"Company policy is nothing will leave our warehouse without receipt of your unit first. If you want a unit to ship sooner then please supply a credit card we can charge and when we receive your old unit we will then credit you back.
We have no control over transit time ."
Are you serious? It's in your repair center! YOU authorized this place as a service center, not me. If you want the unit back faster or want verification of the unit deal with them. You don't need to make your customers ticked off.
EDIT #2: 66 days later I have a new receiver. I was asked to verify my address on file, which I did, and they still sent the new unit BACK to their repair center. I was called and told I could come pick it up. I obliged, going out of my way AGAIN to pick it up. I wasn't even allowed to keep the box it came in :(. The new one worked fine the first day - I'll report back in a month or two. I would stray away from Onkyo's customer service.
I particularly like the Audyssey speaker setup function. It sounded great out of the box, but even better after I ran the setup with Audyssey. I didn't have any problems hooking up five or six components, and found it had plenty of HDMI hookups for my needs.
I've very pleased with this purchase and would recommend it to anyone who wants a mid-range surround sound system.
