Onkyo has included expanded audio, video, USB, network and internet connectivity in two new upgraded models in its HT-RC family of home theater receivers. The new Onkyo HT-RC370 and HT-RC360, which replace the HT-RC270 and HT-RC260, are also among the first AV receivers equipped with the new Marvell Qdeo 4K video upscaling processor. Both include a front-panel USB port that offers a direct digital connection for an iPod or iPhone, along with support for audio playback from USB mass-storage devices. The USB port also supports album art from your iPod/iPhone. Among other upgrades, the HT-RC360 gains full networking capabilities while the HT-RC370 adds Audyssey MultEQ XT processing.

These two network-capable receivers support streaming PC audio and Internet radio from Pandora, Rhapsody, Napster, SiriusXM Internet Radio, Slacker, Mediafly and vTuner and provide compatibility with Windows 7 and DLNA. The These networking models can also take advantage of Onkyo's free Remote App for iPod, iPhone, or iPad to control the A/V receiver. Both models are also compatible with the recently announced UWF-1 Wireless USB Adapter that provides an IEEE 802.11b/g/n connection to access music on a home network.
Both the HT-RC370 and HT-RC360 include connections for USB, Ethernet, and Onkyo's proprietary Universal Port (U-Port), as well as a full array of traditional audio and video sources. 


The HT-RC370 has THX's Select2 Plus certification. Both models are equipped for 7.2-channel surround sound systems with Audyssey DSX or Dolby ProLogic IIz processing. The receivers support Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio codecs, like every modern receiver. The HT-RC370's sonic performance has been upgraded with Audyssey MultEQ XT and the addition of Dolby Volume. The HT-RC360 uses Audyssey 2EQ room correction and includes Audyssey Dynamic EQ and Dynamic Volume to correct loudness issues. 


Both models feature the brand new Marvell Qdeo video-processing chip, which claims to be able to upscale video to as much as 4K resolution. 


The Onkyo HT-RC370 and HT-RC360 will both be available in April with suggested retail prices of $849 and $549 respectively.
