It may be a home theater in a box, but the HT-S9300THX is downright impressive.
Onkyo seems determined to prove people wrong when they say that a home theater in-a-box can't compete with separates. Their latest HTiB, the HT-S9300THX, is THX certified, handles 3D, and it's nice and upgradeable.
It all starts with the receiver, which sports four HDMI 1.4 inputs as well as plenty of component and composite inputs. Anything going into the receiver at less than 1080p will be upscaled courtesy of the Faroudja DCDi Cinema processor.
The receiver handles the latest in lossless Blu-ray audio and includes Dolby ProLogic IIz for height channel processing. It's also got Audyssey features included for the best possible setup and optical and coaxial audio ins and outs.
Along with the incredibly capable receiver, you'll get one center channel speaker, two speakers for the left and right channels, four satellite speakers and a 12 inch subwoofer. All that will be available at the end of the month for $1,099.
