Let's face it, not everyone has a cool grand to drop on a new AV receiver, but Onkyo's looking out for the low- to mid-rangers out there with a nicely equipped duo each sporting a price tag under five bills. Both the $379 TX-SR506 and $479 TX-SR576 feature 32-bit DSP processing, 192 kHz / 24-bit digital-to-analog converters on all channels, 7.1-channel processing for Dolby Digital EX, Dolby ProLogic IIx, DTS-ES, DTS 96/24, and DTS Neo:6, support for the firm's Remote Interactive iPod dock / charger models, the Audyssey 2EQ automatic calibration system and Onkyo's dual-source Powered Zone 2 capability, which allows the receiver's rear surround amplifier channels to power stereo speakers in a second room while still listening to 5.1-channel sound in the main zone. Each unit also touts a trio of HDMI inputs, optical / coaxial digital audio ports and at least 75-watts per channel. For more details on the pair, hit up the read link below.
