Soundbar Speaker Base: The Onkyo LS-T10 is an under-the-TV soundbar
solution that dramatically improves your audio/video experience when watching
your flat-panel TV. The LS-T10 soundbar speaker base is great for movie and
music soundtracks. The LS-T10 will fit under flat-panel TVs up to 55" and
weighing 77 lbs. The TV's pedestal base should be no more than 26.5" (w) x
10.375" (d). The soundbar speaker base system can connect to your television via
a single analog (3.5mm) or digital (optical/coaxial) cable.
Multi-Speaker Array w/ Built-in Subwoofer: As a self-contained space-saving,
virtual surround sound system, the LS-T10 features a six-channel digital
amplifier to power the six-driver array; with four 2.75" full-range drivers on
the front, a 2.75" full-range speaker on each side, and an active 5" subwoofer
on the underside. You can adjust the volume level (-/+10) of the subwoofer
independently from the main volume (0-30).
Dolby Digital Decoding: Dolby Digital is a high quality audio format
commonly encoded on DVDs, Blu-ray Discs, and in TV broadcasts. Select TVs can
pass Dolby Digital audio from there built-in ATSC/QAM tuner and network apps
through to the LS-T10 for dynamic playback, enhanced even further with
AuraSphere DSP technology. You must connect the audio signal of your Blu-ray/DVD
player or Satellite/Cable box directly to the soundbar speaker base to receive a Dolby Digital
signal. If you route the audio signal of your Blu-ray/DVD player or
Satellite/Cable box through the TV first, it will come out as PCM (2ch) at the
TV's digital output; the AuraSphere DSP technology will create a virtual
surround sound effect either way.
Panoramic 3D Sound w/ AuraSphere DSP: The LS-T10 is powered by
AuraSphere DSP (Digital Signal Processing) technology. It works by optimizing
driver output to create a 3D surround effect from stereo sources. Unlike other
DSP technologies, AuraSphere expands the sweet spot (the area in front of the TV
where audio sounds best) to create a 3D soundfield that places the listener in
the center of the action, wherever they're sitting. The LS-T10 offers three
pre-programmed AuraSphere sound modes.
- Movie: Onboard AuraSphere technology applies custom EQ filters to
get the most out of movie and game soundtracks. Deeper bass and an open
mid-range carry dialog clearly, all enhanced by AuraSphere's panoramic 3D
- Music: For music, you want plenty of punchy bass, that doesn't
drown out vocals and strings. AuraSphere manipulates the EQ and sound
pressure levels to best suit music playback, while expanding the soundfield
so that you enjoy balanced stereo sound no matter where you're sitting.
- News: This sound mode makes dialog more intelligible and
maintains clean, balanced response for all types of content, including TV
programs, movies, and news. With this mode engaged, you won't have to keep
raising the volume to hear what's going on. The LS-T10 simply makes TV sound
clear and rich.
Analog + Digital Inputs: The Onkyo LS-T10 is fitted with both analog
and digital inputs to connect your external AV components. There is one optical
(toslink) and one coaxial (RCA) digital input to connect up to two digital audio
sources, such as your flat-panel HDTV and Blu-ray player. The digital inputs
will accept PCM (2ch) or Dolby Digital (5.1ch) audio signals. There is also one
analog audio minijack (3.5mm) input for connecting a portable MP3 player with a
headphone jack output or a TV without a digital output.
USB Port: The Onkyo LS-T10 features a USB (type-A) port which allows
you to connect a compatible USB mass storage class device; such as select
Android smartphones (Gingerbread/Froyo OS only), digital audio players, or USB
thumbdrives. The unit will support music playback and basic control (play/pause &
previous/next track) of MP3 music files (8-320kbps; 8-48kHz) stored on a
compatible USB msc device formatted in FAT 12/16/32. The speaker's USB port will
also charge your USB-enabled device while connected.
Note: The USB port is not compatible with the Apple iPod,
iPhone, or iPad.
Bluetooth Audio Streaming: Pair your smartphone, tablet, laptop, or
desktop computer to the LS-T10 and stream music wirelessly via built-in
Bluetooth (ver.2.1+EDR) technology. You'll be able to wirelessly stream stored music and music
apps on your Bluetooth-enabled devices to the LS-T10. You'll still use your
Bluetooth-enabled mobile device for music navigation and song/artist
information. Pairing is done with the press of a single button.
Note: Due to the differences in Bluetooth technology, some
Bluetooth enabled devices may be incompatible, function improperly, or may
not support all features when used with the Onkyo system.
Remote Control: The LS-T10 features top-panel controls and
includes a wireless IR remote for operation of the system's power, volume, input
sound mode, and USB playback controls. It also comes preprogrammed with IR codes for
a variety of major
TV brands (and learning capability for others), which means it switches on
automatically with your television and responds to your TV remote volume
Note: The LS-T10 is preprogrammed with IR codes for nine
major TV brands; including Funai, LG, Panasonic, Philips, Samsung, Sharp,
Sony, Toshiba, and Vizio, with learning capability for other TV brands.
Auto Standby: The system automatically enters standby mode if
there is no operation and no sound for approximately five minutes.
