If the four HDMI® inputs, Audio Return Channel, convenient HDMI-linked set-up display, and Dolby® TrueHD/DTS-HD Master Audio™ decoding haven’t already persuaded you, here are three more reasons to consider the HT-S4505 home theater. Firstly, Onkyo’s acclaimed WRAT (Wide Range Amplifier Technology)—formerly a feature offered only on its higher-end models—is now included. This noise-reducing technology contributes to exceptionally good audio performance across a wide dynamic range. Secondly, this model features Audyssey 2EQ, which calibrates the speakers and amp to match your room’s acoustics, thus perfecting the surround sound; and Audyssey Dynamic Volume®, which lowers the volume of irritating commercials while making movie dialogue easier to hear. Thirdly, the active subwoofer is designed for high output and very low power consumption, rounding out a compact, powerful speaker set. All this (and much more) adds up to what we think is the best-value, best-performing, best-equipped home theater package around for the money.
