The Onkyo HT-S7200 and HT-S6200 feature five and four HDMI 1.3a inputs respectively and are completely compatible with 1080p HD video. The HT-S7200 also incorporates upscaling of component and composite video sources to 1080i including Faroudja DCDi Edge deinterlacing to eliminate unwanted conversion artifacts.
There is audio processing for every major surround format including decoding for Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio lossless audio formats as well as Dolby’s new ProLogic IIz algorithm which introduces a third dimension to surround sound through the addition of a pair of height channels above the front left and right channel speakers. Onkyo’s HT-S7200 and HT-S6200 each include a full complement of 7 speakers with attractive gloss black finishes and a powerful subwoofer for deep bass reproduction. The HT-S7200 speaker system features dual-drive tallboy front speakers consisting of dual 3-1/4-inch woofers and 1-inch balanced dome tweeter – that deliver a fuller mid-range while making a sleek visual statement – a horizontal center channel with the same drivers and 4 surround speakers.
In addition to its inclusion with the HT-S7200 this speaker system is also available separately as the standalone model SKS-HT870 speaker package. The HT-S6200 incorporates gloss finished bookshelf sized speakers with single 4-inch woofers and 1-inch balanced dome tweeter on the three front speakers and 3-1/4-inch full range speakers for the surrounds. Both systems derive deep bass sound effects from a powerful, 230-watt bass reflex subwoofer with a 10-inch woofer. Both the Onkyo HT-S7200 and HT-S6200 include a trio of acoustic correction technologies. Audyssey 2EQ room correction and calibration system Audyssey Dynamic EQ and Audyssey Dynamic Volume. When used in combination with the 2EQ system the latter dynamically adjust the receiver’s output to correct for room acoustics, listening position, and playback-level variations, delivering an overall experience much closer match to what the audio engineers originally intended. The Onkyo HT-S7200 and HT-S6200 include Onkyo’s exclusive Universal Port (U-Port) which enables one-cable connection for the included UP-A1 iPod dock.
This control and charging dock integrates both audio and video playback from Apple iPhone or iPod portable devices, greatly extending the flexibility of these systems to integrate consumers’ electronic entertainment devices. Additionally the U-Port connection can also provide a one-cable connection to the company’s optional HD-Radio tuner making it simple to bring this new transmission format to the home theater.
