5.1-Channel Home Cinema Receiver/Speaker Package
More Reasons to Choose an Onkyo Home Cinema
If the four HDMI® inputs, Audio Return Channel, convenient HDMI-linked set-up display, and Dolby® TrueHD/DTS-HD Master Audio™ decoding haven’t already persuaded you, here are three more reasons to consider the HT-S4505 home cinema. Firstly, Onkyo’s acclaimed WRAT (Wide Range Amplifier Technology)—formerly a feature offered only on its higher-end models—is now included. This noise-reducing technology contributes to exceptionally good audio performance across a wide dynamic range. Secondly, this model features Audyssey 2EQ®, which calibrates the speakers and amp to match your room’s acoustics, thus perfecting the surround sound; and Audyssey Dynamic Volume®, which lowers the volume of irritating commercials while making movie dialogue easier to hear. Thirdly, the active subwoofer is designed for high output and very low power consumption, rounding out a compact, powerful speaker set. All this (and much more) adds up to what we think is the best-value, best-performing, best-equipped home cinema package around for the money.
It's powerful, it's loaded with the latest connections, and it's ready to launch you on a high-resolution sonic adventure. The HT-S3700 has everything needed to supercharge music, movies, and games. Dynamic high-current amplification has muscle to fill your rooms with clean and punchy sound and smoothly handles the Dolby® TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio™ soundtracks featured on Blu-ray Disc.
There are six of the new 4K/60 Hz HDMI® 2.0 inputs to connect all your media players and gaming consoles, an HDMI output with ARC to add surround sound to broadcast TV, and DSP-optimized Bluetooth for wireless music streaming from smartphone, tablet, or laptop. With the stylish full-range speakers and subwoofer hooked up, you'll find your new home theater is easy to use thanks to overlaid setup menus and selectable listening modes for different types of content. The compact Onkyo HT-S3700 package has serious hi-fi credentials with convenience and features you can't beat at its price.
Authentic High-Fidelity Amplification for Movies, Music, Games, and More
Onkyo’s Wide Range Amplifier Technology (WRAT) is designed for high current delivery. High instantaneous current is needed to maintain control of the speaker drivers for precise yet musical audio reproduction. Backed by a massive high-output transformer, the amplifiers feature a discrete low-impedance output stage (not a cheap integrated circuit) with high-current transistors for instantaneous power and very low distortion. The resulting sound is detailed, dynamic, and highly realistic for both stereo and multichannel listening.
Future-Ready with HDMI® 2.0
Imagine displaying the latest blockbuster PC games on your Ultra HDTV at a breathtaking 60 frames per second. Now add powerful 5.1-channel surround-sound from Onkyo. With every HDMI terminal on the included receiver supporting 4K/60 Hz, all this and more is possible. Even if you’re not planning on upgrading your current display right away, it’s good to know your Onkyo receiver is ready for the future.
Inbuilt Bluetooth with Music Optimizer
Stream almost any audio you like from your smartphone, tablet, or PC to your home theater for clear and powerful hi-fi playback. Everything from tracks on internet streaming services to your device’s MP3 library are smoothly transmitted via Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR, with an Advanced Music Optimizer function compensating for lower-quality compressed audio.
Play Lossless and Hi-Res Music via USB
If you prefer a wired connection, the rear-panel USB port is ready to accept a range of audio formats from mass-storage class disks. As well as MP3, AAC, and WMA, you can play FLAC and WAV up to 192 kHz/24-bit resolution as well as WMA Lossless, Apple Lossless, and 5.6 MHz DSD. Alternatively, you can connect your PC, smartphone, tablet, or media player via the digital or analog audio inputs.
Preview Your HD Video Sources
Video switching is easy with InstaPrevue™ technology. Select InstaPrevue via the Home Menu and video thumbnails showing what’s playing on devices connected via HDMI are overlaid on screen. As well as being a fast and intuitive way to switch sources, it’s also great for keeping an eye on the cable sports channel while you’re playing a console game, for example.
Zone 2 Line-Out for Multi-Room Audio
The Zone 2 line-level output lets you enjoy music from the source devices connected to your A/V receiver via the analog audio inputs in another area of your home. If you have a power amp and a pair of speakers lying around,
you could set them up in your kitchen, garage, or even out on the deck and listen to CDs and radio playing via your A/V receiver.
