PR-SC5530 11.2-Channel Network A/V Controller
Onkyo is among the first to introduce the exciting
Dolby Atmos surround-sound format to home cinema
environments. Dolby Atmos uses object-oriented mixing to
layer independent audio elements through discrete channels,
moving three-dimensional sound effects around the theater
with astonishing realism. The format adapts to any home
cinema layout incorporating height channels for a more
enveloping soundfield with extremely accurate directional
and overhead effects.
THX® Ultra2™ Plus for Reference-Level Sound
THX certification guarantees the same high-volume sound
you experience in a multiplex cinema. Your PR-SC5530
processor has passed more than 2,000 laboratory tests to
ensure every aspect of audio performance meets rigorous
standards for cinema-reference sound. THX Ultra2 Plus is
recommended for screen-to-seat viewing distances greater
than four meters and for room volumes 85 cubic meters or
Engineered for Audio-Video Perfection
Cutting-edge audio-video processing and handcrafted
construction combine to deliver a vivid and immersive
entertainment experience. At the heart of the PR-SC5530
is a massive customized toroidal transformer supported by
two separate EI transformers for A/V processing, which is
controlled by dual 32-bit DSP engines. Digital-to-analog audio
conversion comes courtesy of seven discrete 32-bit BurrBrown DACs. From source device to output, audio and video
signals are kept clean and clear for optimal performance.
Latest HDMI® for 4K/60 Hz Video and HDCP 2.2
All HDMI terminals feature the latest specification supporting
4K video at 60 frames per second and 21:9 cinema aspect.
Now you can add enveloping 11.2-channel surround-sound to
next-generation Ultra HD games and video for a breathtaking
entertainment experience. The PR-SC5530 also supports
HDCP 2.2 DRM copy protection via HDMI Input 3 and the
main output. This is essential for viewing premium streamed
and broadcast Ultra HD content.

The PR-SC5530 includes industry-leading Qdeo™ 4K
upscaling technology, which converts low-resolution video
to liquid-smooth 1080p (for a Full HD display) or 4K on
compatible Ultra HD sets. Selectable ISF video calibration
further optimizes picture quality for stunning images in bright
or low-light conditions.
Three HDMI Outputs for Multizone Video
The Zone 2 HDMI output routes 1080p video from media
players connected to your receiver to a second TV with easy
remote app control in all rooms. HDMI Sub Out is ideal for
connecting a projector.

extraordinary depth and detail of high-resolution music on
your home cinema.
DTS Neo:X™ 11.1-Channel Upmixing
DTS Neo:X employs unique algorithms to upmix stereo or
5.1-channel soundtracks for playback through up to eleven
channels. Selectable listening modes optimize frequency
response for music, movies, and games with intelligent
multiplexing technology allowing you to enjoy balanced and
immersive surround sound from regular stereo sources.

your home, perhaps via some in-ceiling speakers in the
kitchen or bedroom. Select and play any audio you want
in any zone using the remote app. Alternatively, you can biamp compatible front loudspeakers for improved audio

As part of our Emotion, Delivered audio concept, which
brings together technologies that significantly improve both
stereo and multichannel sound quality, Onkyo introduces
the powerful AccuEQ room calibration system. AccuEQ
measures and corrects speaker distances, levels, crossovers,
and frequency response from one convenient listening
position to ensure clear and cohesive surround-sound while
enabling playback of 7.1-channel formats at 96 kHz (no
down-sampling). For the ultimate in pure stereo performance,
AccuEQ bypasses the front channels so the unique
characteristics of your loudspeakers can be enjoyed without
DSP correction to potentially alter the sound.
