Onkyo HT-S7200 and HT-S6200 Home Theater Systems Released

Written on Jul 29, 2009 by Brian and filed under News, Onkyo

Onkyo has released two new 7.1-channel home theater in a box systems. The HT-S7200 and HT-S6200 both include AV receivers with 1080p-compatible HDMI inputs, 130 watts-per-channel, and Onkyo’s U-Port iPod dock.  Unfortunately Onkyo still doesn’t bundle an optical player, so buyers of this system will have to add a DVD player of their choice to both systems. These two systems replace the HT-S7100 and HT-S6100 which were released about a year ago.

In terms of specs, the two systems are actually very similar. Both have the same AV receiver, though the HT-S7200 comes with five HDMI 1.3a inputs (1080p compatible) where the HT-S6200 only has four. The HT-S7200 also incorporates upscaling of component and composite video sources to 1080i.  Both include audio processing for every major surround format, including Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio lossless audio formats, as well as Dolby’s new ProLogic IIz algorithm.

Both systems include seven speakers that come with high gloss black finish. Onkyo’s HT-S7200 features dual-drive tallboy front speakers with dual 3-1/4-inch woofers and a 1-inch balanced dome tweeter, a horizontal center channel with the same drivers, and four satellite surrounds. The HT-S6200 uses bookshelf sized speakers with single 4-inch woofers and 1-inch balanced dome tweeter on the three front speakers and 3-1/4-inch full range speakers for the surrounds. Both systems will fill your room with sound though, especially in the bass levels with a 10″ 230-watt bass reflex subwoofer.

Like most HTiB systems, these come with acoustic correction technology to make sure good an balanced sound gets delivered. In this case Onkyo includes their Audyssey 2EQ room correction and calibration system, Audyssey Dynamic EQ, and Audyssey Dynamic Volume.

The Onkyo HT-S7200 and HT-S6200 are now available for a suggested $899 and $699 each, respectively.
