A massive toroidal transformer with separate EI transformers for A/V processing, seven discrete 32-bit TI Burr-Brown DACs, and two 32-bit DSP engines support hi-res audio streaming via Wi-Fi® and the new Dolby Atmos® format for unbelievably realistic multi dimensional surround-sound. Your choice of balanced or unbalanced 11.4-channel pre-outs—along with Zone 2/3 audio and HDMI Zone 2 out—allow you to build the home theater of your dreams, be it a Dolby Atmos-ready 7.2.4-channel theater complete with in-ceiling speakers or an app-controllable multi-zone A/V system.

Onkyo is among the first to introduce the exciting Dolby Atmos surround-sound format to home theater 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 theater layout incorporating height channels for a more enveloping soundfield with extremely accurate directional and overhead effects.
THX certification guarantees the same high-volume sound you experience in a multiplex theater. Your PR-SC5530 processor has passed more than 2,000 laboratory tests to ensure every aspect of audio performance meets rigorous standards for theater-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 greater.
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 Burr-Brown DACs. From source device to output, audio and video signals are kept clean and clear for optimal performance.
All HDMI terminals feature the latest specification supporting 4K video at 60 frames per second and 21:9 theater 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 has both 11.4 multichannel pre-outs and balanced 11.4-channel XLR pre-outs to connect one or more multichannel and stereo power amplifiers. For home cinema lovers looking for ultimate in performance, there are four parallel subwoofer pre-outs, and connectivity is rounded out with a phono input, six digital audio inputs and seven analog inputs, four composite video inputs (and a Zone 2 analog video out), and three 12 V trigger outputs.
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.
