Dolby Atmos® Multidimensional Sound
Onkyo is among the first to introduce the exciting Dolby Atmos surround-sound format to home cinema 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 cinema layout incorporating height channels for a more enveloping soundfield with extremely accurate directional and overhead effects.
THX® Ultra2™ Plus for Reference-Level Sound
THX certification guarantees the same high-volume sound you experience in a multiplex cinema. Your PR-SC5530 processor has passed more than 2,000 laboratory tests to ensure every aspect of audio performance meets rigorous standards for cinema-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.
Engineered for Audio-Video Perfection
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.
Latest HDMI® for 4K/60 Hz Video and HDCP 2.2
All HDMI terminals feature the latest 2.0 specification supporting 4K video at 60 frames per second and 21:9 cinema 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.
4K Video Upscaling and ISF Calibration
The PR-SC5530 includes industry-leading Qdeo™ 4K upscaling technology, which converts low-resolution video to liquid-smooth 1080p (for a Full HD display) or 4K on compatible Ultra HD sets. Selectable ISF video calibration further optimizes picture quality for stunning images in bright or low-light conditions.
Three HDMI Outputs for Multizone Video 
The Zone 2 HDMI output routes 1080p video from media players connected to your receiver to a second TV with easy remote app control in all rooms. HDMI Sub Out is ideal for connecting a projector.
Wi-Fi® and Bluetooth Inside
The PR-SC5530 features built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. Our free control app puts a range of streaming options at your fingertips, from hi-res audio via NAS to internet streaming to music on smartphone and tablet. Or pair up and enjoy whatever’s playing on your Bluetooth-compatible device with huge cinematic sound. Thanks to Advanced Music Optimizer enhancement, near CD-quality audio is ready in moments, without the wires.
Stream Music from Smartphone and Tablet
For lossless audio streaming, tap on the Onkyo Remote App icon on your smartphone to find your music loaded up and ready with familiar song organization and playback controls. You can also browse and stream from Spotify and Deezer (as well as internet radio services) from within the app, or locate and stream your 192/24, 96/24, and 5.6 MHz DSD albums on NAS and PC. It’s never been easier to enjoy the extraordinary depth and detail of high-resolution music on your home cinema.
DTS Neo:X™ 11.1-Channel Upmixing
DTS Neo:X employs unique algorithms to upmix stereo or 5.1-channel soundtracks for playback through up to eleven channels. Selectable listening modes optimize frequency response for music, movies, and games with intelligent multiplexing technology allowing you to enjoy balanced and immersive surround sound from regular stereo sources.
Wide Connectivity for All Your Components
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.
Multi-Zone Audio and Bi-Amping Capability
If a seven-channel home theater is enough for you, you can assign channels to send audio to two other rooms of your home, perhaps via some in-ceiling speakers in the kitchen or bedroom. Select and play any audio you want in any zone using the remote app. Alternatively, you can bi-amp compatible front loudspeakers for improved audio performance.
Note: Multizone playback and bi-amping requires a compatible power amp.
AccuEQ Calibration for Pure Audio Performance
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.

Up to 90 Day Returns!

Returns are easy and flexible. We will accept returned goods up to 90 days from purchase with the following restrictions as summarised below. For more details please read our Terms & Conditions of Sale, a link is shown at the bottom of the home page.

Changing your Mind
It's OK to change your mind but please be aware that all goods must be returned in as new, unused and re-saleable condition. This means that all packaging must be intact, all accessories are complete in their original wrappers and any free items are also returned with the goods. Essentially the product must be returned in the same condition as you would expect to receive a new unit in. In all cases the cost of returning the goods will be the customer's responsibility. All faulty items must be returned complete and will be repaired under the manufacturer's warranty.


How we Handle Returns
Depending on how long you have had the goods there are different options availble to you. In the case of faulty items, if the item fails due to a manufacturing fault between 1 and 28 days from delivery we will exchange it for a brand new one of the same model. Any items which are found faulty after 28 days from delivery will be repaired under the manufacturers warranty. For returns where you have changed your mind, please find our policy below:


This is were you return your item and we will exchange it for another item of equal or higher value. If the item you wish to change to is of higher value you only pay the difference. If the item is of a lower value we will issue you with a credit note for the difference which you can spend with us at a later date.

Credit Note
This is where you return your item and we issue you with a credit note which you can use against another purchase with us.

This is where you return your item and we issue a refund back to the same method you paid with. e.g. the same credit card. This is not available after 14 days, only exchange or credit note is available after 14 days.

25% Restocking Fee
If your item is returned to us between 29 and 90 days from delivery we will charge a restocking fee of 25% of the price you paid for the item initially. This will be deducted from the value of the exchange or credit note which is issued to you. This is because  technology in the AV marketplace moves fast, and as a result the value of items decrease very quickly.

Please note we do not accept returns after 90 days, except for repairs under warranty.

To complete your order please call us on 0800 634 4484
