Onkyo has been working with THX for a long time, and was the first company to launch a THX certified A/V receiver back in 1994.  Since that initial launch, Onkyo engineers have worked closely with THX to maximize performance.

The latest creation from Onkyo is the PR-SC5508 preamplifier/processor.  This 9.2 channel preamp is THX Ultra2 Plus certified, 3D ready, and network capable.  The PR-SC5508 offers HQV-Reon VX video processing that will enhance Blu-rays and upscale standard definition signals up to 1080p.  Onkyo's preamp/processor also features ISF calibration capability for each individual source.

On the audio side of things, you'll reap the benefits of processing from THX, Dolby, DTS and Audyssey – including MultEQ XT 32 for the best in room calibration.  You'll also find support for height channels in addition to traditional surround sound. The PR-SC5508 comes out this September at a price of $2,199.
