The new tech from DTS gives you a huge amount of flexibility when adding speakers
Onkyo's latest receiver is fairly impressive on its own, but the addition of DTS Neo:X technology makes it that much more interesting. The new tech is designed to allow you to have freedom when setting up extra speakers.
Neo:X tech upscales 2.0, 5.1, 6.1 and 7.1 channel audio sources to 9.1 or 11.1, but that's just the beginning. When adding to your 5.1 setup, you get to choose what you'd like to do with the extra speakers. You can add speakers for more ambient sounds, a fuller soundstage or even put all four in the front for a nice wide space that doesn't need added back speakers.
The receiver also boasts HQV Vida upscaling of standard definition video sources. It'll take them to 1080p as well as enhance and clean up compressed video. If 1080p isn't far enough, the Qdeo processing tech included in the receiver will take you all the way to 4k.
