Gizmodo: If you want a packaged home theater that’ll soak your eyeballs in three-dee and fill your ears with THX-certified boom, Onkyo’s HT-S9300THX will oblige. It has seven theater loudspeakers, a 12″ sub, and works with all the latest 3D gear.
The HT-S9300THX receiver has four 3D-Ready HDMI 1.4a inputs and will upscale video to 1080p. It definitely won’t sound shabby, either, with Dolby and DTS high def audio processing and Dolby ProLogic IIz height channel processing. It’s the first packaged system to be both 3D-ready and fully THX certified.
Some might consider the pre-packaged Home Theater In a Box concept the lazy man’s path to home theater nirvana, but those are the types that are likely to be tangled up in speaker wire while you’re hanging out in Pandora. Available at the end of the month for $1099. That’s a lot of boom for your buck.
