Enjoy enhanced multi-channel sound and THX certification with the Onkyo HT-S9800THX 7.1-Channel Network Home Theater System. This system produces up to 115W per channel at 6 Ohms and consists of a network-enabled A/V receiver, two front speakers, two surround speakers, two surround back speakers, a center speaker, and a 125W front-firing powered subwoofer. It can also accept optional height speakers for Dolby Atmos playback.
Built-in Bluetooth connectivity allows you to wirelessly pair with other Bluetooth-enabled audio sources such as computers, smartphones, and tablets for music playback. Onboard Wi-Fi and Ethernet connectivity give you the ability to stream music from Internet radio sources like Pandora and Deezer. You can also connect high-resolution audio sources to the receiver’s rear-panel USB port.
The Onkyo HT-S9800THX has seven HDMI inputs for connecting digital audio and video sources. There is also a digital coaxial and two optical connections for interfacing additional audio sources. Built-in high-resolution audio support allows you to take advantage of high-resolution surround sound formats like DTS-HD and Dolby TrueHD.
THX Certified Reference Sound
THX Integrated System certification is designed to guarantee theater-quality sound in an all-in-one package. Certified systems are well suited for smaller spaces where the screen-to-seat viewing distance is approximately 6 to 8′. All components within the system are tested to meet THX standards, delivering the same distortion-free sound volume you experience in a commercial theater.
Dynamic Audio Amplification
The high-current capability of Dynamic Audio Amplification is designed to drive 4-Ohm speaker loads, which test even strong amplifiers. This “muscle” means enhanced control, restoring energy to stereo and multichannel sound. In addition, VLSC is designed to eliminate pulse-noise for optimal playback of quality stereo sources.
THX Integrated System Certified Speakers
The included speaker system features solid MDF enclosures and A-OMF woofers (layered polyethylene naphthalate and flexible cotton weave). The surround speakers are equipped with A-OMF drivers to help ensure full-scale surround sound. The front-firing subwoofer fitted with a 12″ cone outputs 125 watts of bass.
Dolby Atmos and DTS:X
Object-based soundtracks allow independently mixed sound to play through any speaker in your system, moving above and around you with enhanced realism.
