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.
