In addition to their solid, but perhaps prohibitively priced Blu-ray player, Onkyo has announced a pair of home theater systems that look very competitive.
As they’re much better known as audio specialists than generalists, the HT-S7200 and HT-S6200 are right in Onkyo’s wheelhouse.
Both packages include receivers with 130 watt per channel amplification, and featuring Dolby’s new IIz processing. The S6200 includes four 1080p capable HDMI inputs, while the S7200 boasts one additional input as well as the ability to upscale composite and component inputs to 1080i.
Adding to the package is a grouping of seven speakers including four surround speakers, two front speakers which upgrade to tallboys for the S7200, a horizontal center channel and a 230 watt bass reflex sub with a ten inch woofer.
A bevy of connection options are available as well, including a simple iPod/iPhone dock which integrates audio and video playback, and a one cord hookup to their optional HD Radio tuner. The S6200 runs $699, the S7200 sells at $899 and the speaker package is available separately at $499.
