I love the guided setup of this great receiver. As my Onkyo TX-SR383 review, I think that after you have completed the setup procedure, you will probably want to do it over again just to experience the excellent quality of the product you've just gotten. Testing the surround sound during setup is wonderful. It allows you to fully experience the high-quality of your speakers. This Onkyo receiver delivers the full sound in all its glory. Separate respect in Onkyo TX-SR383 specs deserves such features as AccuEQ room acoustic calibration and 7.2-ch surround-sound experience with Dolby technologies. The speakers all sound a lot more clear and play much louder without distortion than the other receivers. The auto speaker calibration is awesome too and really works.
The receiver looks much more aggressive and more pleasant thanks to the minimum number of buttons and ports on the case, less than that of most receivers.
Seven discrete analog amplifiers powered by a high-output transformer let you connect front height or rear surround speakers, expanding to a 7.2-Channel layout. HDMI terminals support 4K/60p video, HDR, BT.2020, and HDCP 2.2, and rear output powers select HDMI media streaming sticks. For music, enjoy lossless cd-like audio transmission via Bluetooth technology from your Qualcomm
The device shows great performance thanks to powerful audio control tools such as Advanced Music Optimizer technology, AccuEQ room acoustic calibration etc.
Sound fully justifies its motto “Invest in class-beating surround-sound”.
All you need: Bluetooth wireless technology and Qualcomm aptX Audio. Output terminal supports Audio Return Channel (ARC). A 5V /1A rear-panel terminal supplies power to selected HDMI media streaming devices, allowing you to affordably upgrade your home theater with on-demand network entertainment simply by adding one of these devices.
The receiver is very easy to setup and to connect. It has a comfortable and very good guided setup instruction.
I would recommend this device for anyone looking for the great sound for its home. I love the guided setup of this great receiver. One thing that I definitely recommend, is this unit has the ARC (audio return channel). If you have a newer TV, follow it's instructions on setting up ARC with this unit. It allows you to only have one HDMI cord going to the TV, and it will automatically adjust volume and turn on/off with the TV. The TX-SR383 makes daily entertainment a satisfying multi-sensory experience at the right price. But playing different sources in each zone isn't exactly straightforward, however, so make sure that your kids don't start blasting video game sounds outside.
