Onkyo TX-SR343 review

The review of Onkyo TX-SR343 is allowing us to understand how intricately the explosive development in the home theater sphere has been made. 4.3 points out of 10 are a proper feature and specs evaluation of this unit. The overall rating is too low, we would not recommend choosing this receiver. In 2015, this receiver model became available for purchase. 5.1-channel amplifier is what this model is equipped with.

  • Bluetooth is now one of the key wireless communication protocols. In AV receivers, it is used for audio signal transmission or remote control. And it is in the model under review that Bluetooth support is implemented.
  • The presence of a USB port allows the receiver to play content from external media.
  • With 4K/60Hz pass-through support, it is possible to pass data through this model without degrading image quality.
  • ARC feature eliminates the need for an additional composite or optical cable when connecting this unit to a TV.
