Onkyo has just announced the release of  three new entry-level receivers, the TX-SR343, TX-SR444 and the TX-NR545. 4K compatibility is the “it” feature this year and it’s evident with Onkyo’s entry-level line-up. All three of the receivers below support HDCP 2.2 copy protection in preparation for the onslaught of 4K media. Anyone eager to pick one up shouldn’t  have long to wait as they’re expected to arrive on store shelves any day now.

Onkyo TX-SR343

Onkyo’s entry-level receiver, the 5.1 channel TX-SR343, puts an emphasis on ease of use. The rear panel of the 343 has clearly labeled inputs and outputs to make set-up easy. It features about 100 watts of power per channel and includes built-in bluetooth. More interesting is the fact that it supports HDCP 2.2 copy protection which will be critical for 4K video in the future.

The step-up receiver from the SR343 is the 7.1 channel TX-SR444. The TX-SR444 has the same feature set as the 343 with a couple notable additions. For starters, it has a little more power than the SR343 pumping out about 115 watts per channel. Like the 343, the 444 is HDCP 2.2 compliant and, as an added bonus, it also supports Dolby’s new Atmos format.
