Onkyo TX-SR575 is Company's First A/V Receiver Ready for Both XM and Sirius Satellite Radio

UPPER SADDLE RIVER, NJ (4/24/07) -- Onkyo is now shipping the TX-SR575, a full-featured, versatile, and high value audio/video receiver that is the company's first to include compatibility with both XM and SIRIUS satellite radio broadcasts. The 7.1-channel receiver boasts 75 watts per channel, HDMI pass-through and HD component video switching, and sophisticated Audyssey 2EQ automatic calibration technology.

The TX-SR575 is compatible with both XM and SIRIUS satellite radio tuners, allowing subscribers of either network to enjoy programming in their theater room and external zones. For XM subscribers with an optional XM mini-tuner and home dock, the TX-SR575 also includes Neural Surround decoding for reproduction of Neural-encoded XM broadcasts in discrete 5.1-channel surround sound. Sirius satellite radio is equally accessible through the use of an optional SIRIUSConnect home tuner kit. The receiver also features a high quality terrestrial AM/FM radio tuner and features 40 presets for AM, FM, XM, or SIRIUS stations.

The TX-SR575 receiver has a broad array of audio and video connections, including HDMI pass-through switching with the ability to transmit 1080p video and Deep-Color™ data through 2 inputs and 1 output, as well as three component video inputs for 1080i and 720p sources. It also features component video upconversion for composite and S-Video sources, dramatically reducing the need for multiple redundant connections to modern video displays. Additional connectivity includes four assignable digital audio inputs, three A/V inputs and two outputs, and a full set of color-coded 7.1-channel multichannel analog audio inputs, making it ready for the new generation of Dolby Digital Plus and DTS-HD sources, such as HD-DVD and Blu-Ray video players.

The TX-SR575's Audyssey 2EQ automatic speaker calibration feature uses an included calibration microphone to analyze the system's acoustical output at two unique positions in the listening area. The receiver sends test signals to each speaker in turn, then uses the inputs from the microphone to adjust channel level and time delay settings for each speaker. By taking readings in two different positions in the theater room, the receiver can be calibrated to the speakers and environment, delivering optimal response throughout the room rather than just at the 'sweet spot' directly in front of the screen.

For sharp and accurate audio reproduction, the TX-SR575 employs 32-bit DSP processing and 192 kHz/24-bit digital-to-analog converters on all channels. It includes 7.1-channel surround processing for Dolby Digital EX, Dolby ProLogic IIX, DTS-ES, DTS-96/24, and DTS Neo:6. The receiver also includes a user-selectable eight-setting subwoofer crossover adjustment for ideal integration of any subwoofer/satellite speaker system.

Onkyo has also designed the TX-SR575 to take complete advantage of the company's RI (Remote Interactive) iPod dock/charger models. The receiver includes a preprogrammed RI-compatible remote control, and is currently available in either black or silver finishes at a suggested retail price of $479.
