Onkyo jumps to HDMI 1.3a

High-end component maker Onkyo has announced two new AV receivers, the TX-SA605 and the TX-SA805. The major upgrade to both is HDMI 1.3a, giving the products support for HD and 7.1 surround codecs, such as DTS-HD and Dolby TrueHD. This is partly possible because of 1.3's bandwidth increase to 10.2Gbps.

The 605 distributes 185W of power along seven channels, while the 805 is boosted to 230W; the 605 however is being made in silver and gold colors, while the 805 is only being produced in gold. The systems should first arrive in Japan on June 16th for 84,000 yen ($692) and 189,000 yen ($1,556) respectively. [via Akihabara News]
