This is the period where AV makers start showing off their gear for the upcoming year. Onkyo has given us a peak at their new entry-level model, the TX-SR373. Expensive amps usually get all the good features, however given enough time some of that tech trickles down to entry-level units. This is the case with the Onkyo TX-SR373.

Onkyo TX-SR373 Connections

The 5.2 channel Onkyo TX-SR373 doesn’t include Dolby Atmos or DTS:X, however it does include a ton of useful features nonetheless. Based on the stats released by Onkyo, the SR373 can deliver about 80 watts into 8 ohms (0.08% THD). In total the amp has 4 HDMI inputs which are 4K ready. HDCP2.2 and HDR10 passthrough are both supported by the receiver. Along with HDMI, the Onkyo TX-SR373 also includes two digital inputs (one coaxial and one optical). For older equipment, the receiver also has three analog inputs. DTS-HD Master Audio and Dolby TrueHD can both be decoded by the amp.

Onkyo-TX-SR373 Preview

The SR-373 doesn’t include an ethernet connection or WiFi, but that doesn’t mean you can’t send your music to it wirelessly. The receiver includes Bluetooth with aptX.  This allows you to easily sync your phone or smart device with the unit and stream audio to the amp without a wired connection.

 

For the first time ever, Onkyo’s ACCUEQ calibration system makes an appearance on one of their entry-level receivers. ACCUEQ essentially calculates the correct crossover frequencies, speaker distances and speaker levels for your system based on your room’s acoustics. While room calibration isn’t a necessity with an amp, it does help you get the most out of your AV receiver and speakers.

 

The wait time to pick up this little entry-level receiver should be short lived. The 373 is starting to pop-up on retailer shelves now.
