About the Onkyo HT-S760
Whether you've already got a DVD player, or you're choosing a model from our selection of DVD players, Onkyo's HT-S760 home theater audio system is a convenient way to enhance your movie viewing with incredible 6.1-channel wraparound surround sound. It sports a powerful 600-watt receiver, and a complete 6.1 speaker package, including two front speakers, a center channel, three surround speakers, and a 150-watt powered subwoofer. Speaker cables are even included for easy hookup!
Onkyo components have a reputation for solid build quality and high performance and the receiver included with this system is no exception. With a clean 100 watts x 6 channels of amplification, it's got plenty of power to drive the included speaker package to multichannel perfection. On-board Dolby® Digital EX and DTS-ES® decoding let you enjoy 6.1 sound from 5.1- or 6.1-encoded DVD soundtracks. And you can transform any 2-channel source (including stereo music and VHS tapes) into 6.1 audio using DTS Neo:6 modes.
Onkyo's six voice-matched speakers and powered subwoofer deliver an intense audio experience. The front speakers and center channel include a 1" balanced dome tweeter and dual woofers (5-1/4" for left and right, 4" for center channel). The left, right, and back surrounds team the same tweeter with a single 4" midrange driver. The result? A solid 360º soundstage, with lifelike special effects. The subwoofer's 8" long-throw driver, powered by a built-in 150-watt amp, dishes out substantial low-frequency rumble for stellar surround sound and full, rich music.

More details on the Onkyo HT-S760
WRAT (Wide Range Amplifier Technology): This technology uses low-negative-feedback circuit topology for accurate signal reproduction, improved dynamic signal-to-noise ratio, and better delivery of power peaks.
96kHz/24-Bit Digital-to-Analog Converters: The HT-R510 receiver is equipped with six 96kHz/24-bit DACs to decode and play high-resolution recordings.
Subwoofer Adjustable Crossover: This receiver has a built-in crossover for the subwoofer output. This setting is available when you tell the receiver that there is a subwoofer being used, or when you set your main speakers to "Small". The frequencies that you can choose from are: 60, 80, 100, 120, and 150Hz.
Assignable Digital Inputs: The HT-R510 has 3 assignable digital inputs (2 optical, 1 coaxial) allowing you to tell the unit which input source is connected to which digital input jack.
Multi-channel Input: Although this unit features built-in Dolby Digital, Dolby Pro Logic II and DTS processing, it also has a 5.1 multi-channel input for use with external multi-channel decoders.
Listening Modes: This receiver incorporates a wide variety of listening modes to bring you maximum enjoyment from your audio and video software. The listening modes include:
- Surround Modes:
- Dolby Digital
- Dolby Digital EX
- Dolby Pro Logic II (Movie and Music)
- DTS-ES (Discrete 6.1 and Matrix 6.1)
- DTS Neo:6 (Cinema and Music)
- DSP Modes:
- TV Logic
- All Ch Stereo
Direct Mode: This mode delivers pure sound with minimal sound quality adjustment and filtration. The sound recorded for the right and left front channels is output to the right and left front speakers only and not output to the subwoofer.
CinemaFILTER Circuitry: This circuitry provides a subtle high-frequency rolloff for proper playback of soundtracks in the home. This feature provides the means to easily remove excess treble response from soundtracks that were originally equalized to sound best in a large theater. This function only works in the Dolby Digital, Dolby Digital EX, Dolby Pro Logic II Movie, DTS, DTS-ES Discrete 6.1, DTS-ES Matrix 6.1, and the DTS Neo:6 surround modes.
"Late Night" Feature: The "Late Night" feature limits the dynamic range of Dolby Digital recordings that have been encoded with dynamic range data. Limiting the dynamic range makes it easier to find a volume control setting that ensures the quiet sounds are not too quiet and the loud sounds are not too loud for night time listening. The choices are: "Off", "Low", and "High". Note: This feature only works with Dolby Digital Encoded software and the depth of the feature will vary based on the individual software package.
DPL II Music Modes: While listening in the Dolby Pro Logic II Music format, there are three further enhancements you can enjoy:
- Panorama: This mode extends the front stereo image to the surround speakers to provide a "wraparound" effect. This mode is especially effective when there is limited output from the surround channels. Panorama can be turned on/off in the menu.
- Dimension: This mode allows you to move the soundfield forward (toward "0" setting) or backward (toward "6" setting). Default setting is "3".
- Center Width: This mode allows you to move the center channel output totally to the center channel speaker ("0" setting) or divided between left and right channels, creating a "phantom" center channel ("7" setting). Default setting is "3".
Center Image: In the DTS Neo:6 format, the Center Image feature adjusts the output of the left and right channels relative to the center channel, allowing you to make the center channel more or less dominant as needed. This improves the image of the center channel, especially when the listener is off-center. Adjustment varies from 5 (nothing subtracted from the L/R channels) to 0 (L/R channel output is cut in half [-6dB] making the center channel most dominant).
Sleep Function: From the remote, you can set the unit to automatically turn off after a preset amount of time--10 minutes to 90 minutes in 10-minute increments.
Display Dimmer: The display illumination can be set to Dim, Dimmer or Normal.
Multibrand Remote: The RC-518M remote is pre-programmed to operate Onkyo CD, DVD, and cassette players. In addition, the remote is pre-programmed to operate other popular brands of equipment including DVD players, VCRs, televisions, cable boxes, and satellites.
SKW-200 Subwoofer: The subwoofer features an 8" cone woofer in a bass reflex enclosure. The LED indicator, locator on the front panel, glows red when in "standby" mode, and green when in operation. The subwoofer automatically turns on when an input signal is received, and returns to "standby" mode when no signal has been input for about 8 minutes.
SKF-200F Front Speakers: The front speakers feature two 5-1/4" woofers and a 1" balanced dome tweeter in a bass reflex enclosure. They are magnetically shielded to allow you to safely place them close to a TV screen without picture distortion.
SKC-200C Center Speaker: The center channel speaker features two 4" woofers and a 1" balanced dome tweeter in a bass reflex enclosure. It is magnetically shielded to allow you to safely place it close to or on top of a TV without picture distortion.
SKM-200S Surround Speakers: The surround speakers feature a 4" woofer and a 1" balanced dome tweeter in a bass reflex enclosure. They are not magnetically shielded. They can be wall mounted using the keyhole slot provided on the back of the enclosure.
SKB-200 Back Surround Speaker: The surround back speaker features a 4" woofer and a 1" balanced dome tweeter in a bass reflex enclosure. It is not magnetically shielded. It can be wall mounted using the keyhole slot provided on the back of the enclosure.
Terminals: All of the speakers have spring clip terminals that can accept bare wire or pin connectors. The subwoofer has a single mono RCA line input.
Speaker Wiring: Color-coded speaker wire is provided for all 6 speakers, plus a mono RCA cable is included for the subwoofer. Standard speaker wire can be substituted if longer lengths or thicker gauge speaker wire is desired.
Headphone Output: This receiver has a standard 1/4" headphone jack on the front panel. Speaker sets A and B are turned off while the headphone plug is inserted in the Phones jack. When you connect a pair of headphones, the listening mode automatically switches to Stereo, unless it's already set to Direct or Stereo. When you disconnect the headphones, the previous listening mode is selected.
Speaker Outputs: There are binding post connectors for the left front, right front, center, left surround, right surround, and surround back speakers. The binding posts are not 5-way because a plastic collar prevents their use with spade lugs. In addition, there are spring clip connectors for the Front B speaker outputs. Note: When you turn on Speaker set B, the listening mode for Speaker set A switches to Stereo.
RI Remote Control Jacks: The 1/8" RI (Remote Interactive) remote control jacks on the receiver allow you to connect the receiver to other RI-remote capable Onkyo components.
