Onkyo introduces two new AV receivers, the HT-RC370 and HT-RC360, replacing the HT-RC270 and HT-RC260. The new receivers are the among the first AV receivers equipped with the new Marvell Qdeo 4K video upscaling processor and include full networking capabilities with Ethernet LAN port.
The 7.2-channel RC370 and RC360 systems both feature Audyssey DSX, Dolby ProLogic IIz processing as well as Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio high-definition audio codecs. The former comes with Audyssey MultEQ XT for a superior room equalization setup and the addition of Dolby Volume for optimal sound at any volume setting, while the latter uses Audyssey 2EQ room correction and includes Audyssey Dynamic EQ and Dynamic Volume to correct loudness issues. They both have Burr-Brown 192kHz/24-bit DACs AND WRAT (Wide Range Amplifier Technology) amplifiers, and the HT-RC370 adds Onkyo’s three-stage inverted Darlington circuitry for even higher dynamics and lower distortion, and THX’s prestigious Select2 Plus certification.
With network connectivity, the HT-RC370 and HT-RC360 support streaming PC audio and Internet radio from the likes of Pandora, Rhapsody, Napster, SiriusXM Internet Radio, Slacker, Mediafly and vTuner and provide compatibility with Windows 7 and DLNA. There is also USB port for audio playback from USB mass-storage devices. Both receivers are also compatible with the recently announced UWF-1 Wireless USB Adapter that provides an IEEE 802.11b/g/n connection to access music on a home network.
Onkyo will release the HT-RC370 and HT-RC360 in April.
