Here’s the Sound and Vision Review
Onkyo's TX-LR552 is Onkyo's TX-LR552 is a 6.1-channel home theater receiver with a 65-watt six-channel digital amplifier and a glowing ring of blue around the volume control. (That alone makes it cool enough for me...) But the real story about this multi-amped marvel is the fact that it stands less than four-inches high.
Lest you think this digital darling is somehow compromised by its short stature, be advised that the TX-LR552 features HDTV-capable component video switching (two component inputs and one output), as well as three composite and three S-video inputs. Exceptionally nice is the fact that all video signals are converted to component video so you'll only have to run one set of cables from the receiver to your display. Digital audio inputs include two optical and one coaxial. There's also a 5.1-channel analog audio input for listening to high-resolution music from DVD-A and SACD players. As befits its status as a receiver, the TX-LR552 includes a built-in AM/FM tuner with 40 available presets. (Can someone please tell me where on Earth there are enough decent radio stations in one city to fill 40 presets?)
Color-coded speaker terminals plus an automatic speaker detection system help even the most electronically challenged properly hook up a system built around the TX-LR552. The included preprogrammed remote control makes it easy to calibrate the volume level for each individual speaker, and the subwoofer output has an adjustable crossover so owners can make it sound great by seamlessly integrating the subwoofer with the satellites (or doggone awful by setting the crossover way too high).
Available in silver, the TX-LR552 has a suggested retail price of $400.
