Onkyo Sound is Emotion. Delivered.
Drivers don't judge sports cars on top speed alone. Acceleration, cornering, and braking are equally important. It's the same with A/V receivers—wattage is only an indication of loudness, not sound quality.The real test is current. High instantaneous current enhances speaker control for accurate and musical audio reproduction. It's the cornerstone of our amplification philosophy—no other brand can match Onkyo for dynamic driving power.
Engineered for Pure Exhilaration
Best-in-class high-current capability is achieved with Wide Range Amplifier Technology (WRAT). At its core are a custom high-output transformer, customized 18,000 μF capacitors, and low- impedance copper bus-plates with separate processing and amplification blocks. Seven two-channel 192 kHz/24-bit TI Burr-Brown DACs and two 32-bit DSP engines handle audio processing with Three-Stage Inverted Darlington Circuitry amplification and discrete low-impedance output transistors delivering instantaneous power. The pinnacle of over 65 year's audio engineering experience, WRAT preserves the vitality of the master recording.
