5.1-Channel A/V Receiver
Unlock the Full Movie Experience with Authentic 5.1 Sound
Soundbars definitely have their place, but if explosive surround sound is what you’re dreaming of—without an eye-watering price tag— check out the all-new TX-SR252. It serves as a next-gen 4K/60 Hz-ready hub for all your devices (game consoles, media streamers, VCRs, and BD players) and sends everything to your TV through a single cable. It can even be set up to switch on and off automatically with your regular TV remote. But best of all, its fully discrete analog amps immerse you in 100 W/Ch of clear and dynamic surround sound, whether it’s from your regular TV shows, DTS-HD Master Audio™-encoded Blu-rays, an AM/FM radio station, or MP3s played via the front USB. So if you’re set on fixing your flatscreen sound, do it properly and do it affordably with this compact A/V solution.

5.1 Channels Take Entertainment to the Next Level
Five-channel surround-sound presents the art of cinema in a way single-point-source audio systems can’t match. With speakers positioned all around you, movies, games, TV programs, and music are enhanced with immersive realism.

Connections to speakers and external devices are illustrated and clearly labeled on the back panel.
Front USB Port for MP3, WMA, and AAC Playback
