ONKYO UNVEILS NEW A/V RECEIVER
The TX-NR5000E THX Ultra2 Home Theater & Network
Receiver Uses Card-Based Architecture for Hardware
In an age when home entertainment technology is often out of date as
soon as it is introduced, Onkyo has now adapted the computer industry's
architecture of replaceable modules, upgradeable software, and
build-to-order marketing. These will make it possible for consumers to upgrade
and even customize hardware and software to avoid short-term
obsolescence. As new modules become available, customers will have
choices, just as they do when purchasing a computer.
Four years ago, Onkyo introduced the world's first software-upgradeable
home theater receiver. Since then thousands of owners have been able to
keep current with the latest surround technologies from Dolby, DTS, and
THX. Now, with the TX-NR5000E, Onkyo adds the ability to upgrade hardware,
but will also be able to add brand new capabilities such as
high-tech broadcast reception, advanced networking, processing circuits,
and interface standards that don't yet exist.
Today Onkyo is announcing the TX-NR5000E THX Ultra2 Network AV
receiver with its key audio and video processing and interface features
provided on plug-in circuit modules. Now consumers will be able to take
advantage of future technologies by replacing a card instead of the entire
receiver. The first new modules are scheduled for 2005 with anticipated
upgrades for new radio technology and for video interface sections. Of
course Onkyo will also continue to provide appropriate software upgrades.
The first-production TX-NR5000Es will also include two features new to
home theater receivers. The first are a pair of iLink(TM) digital inputs that
allow bit-for-bit digital transfer of DVD-Audio and SACD audio without
violating copy-protection controls. The second is a high quality audio and
video HDMI high definition multimedia interface with two inputs and one
output for compatibility with the DVI digital video interface found on the
newest high-end AV components.
As would be expected of a top of the line receiver, the Onkyo TXNR5000E
is THX Ultra2 certified, with 200 watts of power for each of the
seven channels driving 6-ohm speakers. It has all the current THX, Dolby,
and DTS processing modes, including Dolby Pro Logic IIx. The receiver
has excellent build-quality and uses premium parts throughout, including
state-of-the-art Wolfson 192 kHz/24-bit D/A converters for all channels.
The receiver can also be connected to a personal computer network
(TCP/IP) via a rear-panel Ethernet port, and uses an included Onkyo Net-
Tune(TM) client processor to access MP3, WMA and WAV digital music
files stored on a networked PC or to play Internet radio through a
networked broadband connection. Up to 11 other Net-Tune(TM) client
receivers can run simultaneously on the same network.
The Onkyo TX-NR5000E offers a remarkable level of compatibility and
connectivity with more audio/video and audio-only inputs and outputs than
almost any home system could ever need. In addition to the iLink(TM) and
HDMI connections, there are optical and coaxial digital audio inputs and
outputs, cinch stereo inputs and outputs, a phono input, and component,
S-video, and composite video connections. The TX-NR5000E also has
composite and S-Video upsampling to component video, which greatly
simplifies switching and connections when mixing video source
components from different generations.
All seven amplifier channels use Onkyo's exclusive WRAT Wide Range
Amplifier Technology to provide the 5 Hz to 100-kHz bandwidth called for
by today's wide-band audio modes. It has two complete seven-speaker
sets of banana plug speaker terminals for two complete systems or for biwiring.
The receiver has three-zone capability, five 12-volt triggers, three
IR outputs, and a bi-directional RS-232 port for software upgrades and
connection to home automation systems.
