[CES 2011] Onkyo releases new hi-fi components with nostalgic styling
Onkyo has just released three new separate component models, the P-3000R pre-amplifier, M-5000R power amplifier, and C-7000R CD player. To counteract high-frequency interference; they all feature Onkyo’s new Dynamic Intermodulation Distortion Reduction Circuitry (DIDRC). To further reduce interference, the components feature separate digital and analog circuitry. Other features common to all models include audiophile-grade parts—such as massive toroidal transformers and gold-plated terminals—along with a new circuit board construction and separate chassis panels, to eliminate unwanted vibrations. Despite having the latest technology inside, these components feature Onkyo’s 1980s styling. The price tags are reminiscent of high-end 80s technology too. They are asking $1,699 for the P-3000R pre-amplifier, $2,499 for the M-5000R power amplifier, and $1,499 for the C-7000R CD player.
