The new HTiBs from Onkyo include 3D capable AV Receivers with Faroudja processors.
Home theater enthusiasts may scoff at the idea of purchasing a home-theater-in-a-box for your audio, but the latest offerings from Onkyo have a lot going in their favor.
For starters, both the new HD-S6300 and HT-S7300 feature 3D capable receivers with four HDMI 1.4 inputs. Video can be upscaled all the way up to 1080p thanks to Faroudja DCDi Cinema processors, which also remove the 'jaggies' from your standard definition video of choice.
Both systems come with a range of technologies from Audyssey built right in. They've got Audyssey Dynamic EQ, Dynamic Volume Processing and the 2EQ room acoustics correction tech. Both the 6300 and 7300 also include Dolby ProLogic IIz for height channel processing.
The main difference between the two is in the speakers. The 6300 comes with six bookshelf speakers, one center channel and a 290 watt subwoofer. The 7300, on the other hand, switches a pair of those bookshelf speakers for floorstanding left and right speakers that ultilize dual woofers.
You can pick up Onkyo's new line of HTiBs now. The HT-6300 runs $749 while the 7300 comes in at $899.
