Bring a touch of the cinema into your home. The Onkyo TX-SR252 5.1 Channel AV Receiver uses Dolby True HD technology to deliver the sound quality the producer intended, whether you're watching an action-packed movie or checking out a new album.

Get ready to impress your mates and show off your home cinema setup. You'll hear atmospheric sounds and subtle detail you never knew existed. 

5.1 surround sound 

Hear birds of paradise distantly behind you while hearing the rustling of leaves ahead, all at the same time. The Onkyo TX-SR252 is able to connect with up to five speakers and a subwoofer, delivering a sound that envelops you and uses individual speakers to deliver certain sounds in the mix. The ideal configuration is displayed on the rear of the unit, showing you how to get the most out of audio playback in your living room. 

Four HDMI ports 

There's no need to mess around with cables when you're finished gaming and want to watch TV. The Onkyo TX-SR252 has four HDMI IN ports that offer ample space for your DVD & Blu-ray player, set-top box, and games console. With Ultra HD passthrough ability, you won't need to compromise on display quality when plugging your device in via the AV receiver, either.

Watch your favourite box sets in stunning 4K while getting the best audio quality to match. 

Front USB port 

Your larger entertainment devices can easily connect to your AV receiver, so what about the smaller ones? The Onkyo TX-SR252 5.1 Channel AV Receiver has a convenient USB port on the front that enables you to play music from any app using your smartphone. It's simple to use and means you won't need to rummage for a vacant port when there's a song you're desperate to hear.
