Onkyo has introduced a home theater system that adds DVD video and multi-channel surround sound to any TV in minutes. The LS-V955 system consists of a one-piece integrated 40-Watt per channel surround receiver and progressive-scan DVD player, 150-Watt powered subwoofer, and five aluminum speakers designed to complement any video display.

The Onkyo LS-V955's one-piece DVD receiver features progressive-scan component video as well as composite and S-video, and standard A/V outputs for compatibility with existing televisions. Built-in Dolby Digital, Dolby ProLogic II and DTS decoders deliver 5.1-channel audio to the included speaker/subwoofer package for clear, dynamic sound effects and a multi-channel soundstage that "immerses viewers in the movie" according to Onkyo. The player is also compatible with CDs, CD-R/RWs, and even MP3-encoded discs, making the LS-V955 versatile as both an audio and home theater system.

The included six-speaker surround system includes slim extruded aluminum two-way front and surround satellites, a two-way horizontal center channel, and a 150-watt powered subwoofer for deep bass reproduction. The front left, right and center channel speakers each have a pair of 3-1/8 inch cone woofers flanking a 1-inch balanced dome tweeter, while the rear surround speakers employ a single woofer and tweeter. All of the speakers are magnetically shielded to prevent interference with video displays.

Color-coded terminals and intuitive design makes setup and operation of the LS-V955 simple and fast. The receiver includes enough connections for up to four additional components such as VCR, cable or satellite and tape loop. The unit also features a built-in FM/AM tuner with 30 presets. The LS-V955 includes a full-function preprogrammed/learning remote control that can be used to operate all the components in a home entertainment system, eliminating the "remote clutter" that plagues most entertainment systems.

The Onkyo LS-V955 integrated home theater system is now available with a suggested retail price of $1,000.
