Just a week after showing their new HTiBs, Onkyo is showing off a new line of receivers, aimed at giving customers the best value for their money.
In their words, “In these testing economic times, you can trust Onkyo to deliver maximum bang for your hard-earned buck.”
First up is the HT-RC160, selling now at a MSRP of $549, which offers 7.2 channel processing, five HDMI 1.3a inputs, analog to HDMI video upconversion and a strong range of audio decoding options. Also included in this receiver is the increasingly popular Dolby Pro Logic IIZ, which adds a new vertical dimension to sound.
Fewer details are available about the upcoming HT-RC180, which is due later this month, aside from the THX Select2Plus certification and networking capabilities, giving customers access to Pandora, Rhapsody and more. The suggested price for the HT-RC180 is a less recession-conscious $1049.
