Welcome to Immersive, Affordable Home Cinema
For small- to medium-sized rooms, It would be a mistake to ignore the well-balanced and affordable HT-S3505 home cinema package. Newly equipped with Onkyo’s WRAT (Wide Range Amplifier Technology), the AV Receiver and six-speaker set will surprise and delight with audio performance you would expect from a much more expensive system. The package is easy to set up right out of the box, thanks to the intuitive HDMI®-overlaid On-Screen Display and wall-mountable speakers. Four HDMI inputs provide connectivity for Blu-ray Disc players, Broadcast boxes, Personal Video Recorders and gaming consoles. The HDMI ports are also Audio Return Channel enabled to send the TV audio through the receiver. Connect your iPod/iPhone to the optional dock and enjoy pristine sound, thanks to an inbuilt optimizer that enhances the quality of compressed digital music. The AV Receiver decodes Dolby® TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio™, and is ready for 3D games and movies.
Perfect for replacing an aging system, or for your first foray into the world of home cinema, the package is rounded out with a powerful subwoofer to boost low frequency sound.
Audio Return Channel and 3D Video via HDMI®
Four HDMI inputs allow you to easily integrate high-definition devices such as Blu-ray players, cable/satellite tuners, and gaming consoles. HDMI implementation on this receiver also supports an Audio Return Channel, allowing audio received directly by your TV’s tuner to be sent “upstream” to the A/V receiver. That means you can enjoy television programs in magnificent Onkyo sound. HDMI also supports 3D video and numerous other high-resolution formats, and has the added advantage of reducing cable clutter for a cleaner and simpler installation.
Convenient Overlaid On-Screen Display via HDMI
The receiver’s overlaid On-Screen Display (OSD) feature makes changing the settings on your A/V receiver quick and easy. On-screen set-up menus appear overlaid on the video image you’re watching. This means you can adjust the settings immediately, without having to stop the program and switch to a different screen to access menus.
WRAT (Wide Range Amplifier Technology) Delivers Higher Fidelity
WRAT is a suite of innovative technologies developed to improve signal-to-noise ratios, and to enhance the fidelity of amplified audio. The technologies work to reduce noise across the frequency range, guaranteeing a well-balanced performance even with the most dynamic soundtracks. It achieves this by employing a low negative-feedback amplifier design; using “closed” ground-loop circuitry to cancel noise from individual circuits; and by ensuring high instantaneous-current capability to cancel reflex energy and impedance fluctuations from the speakers. The WRAT design has made Onkyo AVRs the firm favorite among discerning audio enthusiasts.
Enjoy Lossless High-Definition Movie Soundtracks
The receiver can decode Dolby® TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio™—two “lossless” Blu-ray formats that deliver a soundtrack identical to the studio master. The receiver also handles Dolby® Digital Plus and DTS-HD High Resolution Audio™. Dolby Digital Plus is designed to accompany HD video delivered via disc media, television broadcasts, and online content. DTS-HD High Resolution Audio, meanwhile, offers a higher bit and sampling rate than the core DTS technology.
Top-Quality DACs Produce Clearer Sound
Digital-to-Analog converters are of particular importance to audio fans seeking excellent sound reproduction, and the HT-R358 receiver features reliable, high-performance 192 kHz/24-bit chips from Burr-Brown. As well as optimizing analogue performance, these DACs are highly resistant to “clock jitter”, a subtle form of digital distortion
Get More Realistic Action with Four Different Gaming Modes
Select from four different optimized audio modes to match your gaming content for a highly realistic surround sound experience. Rock, Sports, Action, and RPG game modes will help to bring out the best in any soundtrack, from subtle ambient effects to thundering explosions.
Super EX.Bass for Deeper, More Dynamic Bass
Onkyo’s proprietary Super EX.Bass function boosts low-frequency output at two separate points: 40 Hz and 80 Hz. At low volumes, Super EX.Bass creates a deeper, more dynamic bass sound for your music and movies. When the volume is turned up high, the boosted bass automatically returns to normal levels
