Absolute 3D Sound by Sonic Emotion
The iLunar’s Absolute 3D sound concept is made possible by innovative technology from the Swiss company Sonic Emotion. Absolute 3D works by processing incoming stereo signals, locating sound objects within the mix, and recreating their original positions using the iLunar’s 6.1 loudspeaker array. Called Sound Field Control, the patented technology eliminates the conventional stereo sweet spot so everyone in the room can enjoy a natural, immersive listening experience. With remote-selectable 3D modes including Normal, Enhanced, and Vocal, this technology renders an authentic Absolute 3D image to create the feeling of being in the studio with the musicians playing around you.
Bluetooth Streaming at Your Fingertips
Whether you’re an iPhone or iPad user, an Android fan, or an owner of a compatible device with Bluetooth capability, streaming music through your iLunar couldn’t be easier. Just pair the devices, select the track, playlist, or album you want to listen to, and press “play”. With the robust data transfer capabilities of Bluetooth 2.1 +EDR, you’ll be delighted with remarkably clear sound reproduction. There’s even a handy USB port for charging compatible smart phones and tablets while you’re streaming your music.
iPod/iPhone Digital Audio Connection and Power Recharging Dock
As most seasoned iPhone and iPod users know, you can never have too many chargers around the home or office. The dust-free dock on the iLunar provides yet another way to top off your batteries as you enjoy the super-clean sound of Onkyo’s digital-to-digital connection technology. All audio signals are transported in digital form, rather than analog, so there is much less chance for signal degradation—which means your music sounds cleaner and more faithful to the original. And your iPhone or iPod is left charged and ready for when you’re back on the move.
Efficient Digital Amplifier Circuitry for Clean Audio
The iLunar employs digital amplifier circuitry to extract a noise-free signal from digital audio sources. Whether it’s an AAC file stored on iPhone, or an MP3 streamed wirelessly from your laptop via Bluetooth technology, your music will sound clearer than ever. Because digital amplifiers can convert power with very high levels of efficiency, much less energy is wasted as heat. With no need for a bulky heat sink, the amplifier design can be smaller and lighter. Hence, the iLunar can generate room-filling power through 6.1 channels while remaining portable enough to move from room to room.
A Design and Build You Can Trust
Unlike some docking system manufacturers, Onkyo brings more than 60 years’ audio engineering experience to bear when designing its products. Onkyo—the world’s leading audio and home cinema brand—is admired for its unique approach to design and engineering. As well as placing strong emphasis on technological innovation, it insists on an exceptionally rugged build, functional yet elegant design, and above all, extremely good sound quality. Products within Onkyo’s compact range are known for their solid feel and very high standard of finish, with good quality materials used throughout.
