Summary: Bought this mini stereo system for the apartment we're living in for a year here in DC. I wanted something that would produce decent sound from CD's, DVD's and the cable TV. That it also had internet radio capabilities was a plus. As it turns out the system performs as well as one could expect. I read many reviews of similar systems, and had narrowed my choice to this Onkyo unit or a similar Denon system. The Denon was less expensive, and did not have the connectivity.
Pros: Good sound for the money, stock speakers more than adequate, very flexible, easy to set up and use. I recomend downloading the remote control app for your iphone or android.
Cons: The manual is useless when trying to set up any of the networking functions. It's best to search the web for instructions and hints from others who have already done it.
Summary: I bought this system for my husband for the holidays. i wanted something that could neatly fit in our kitchen. He does a lot of cooking and likes to listen to the news, music etc. We also have a wireless router in the house for our computers and I thought getting access to the streaming radio stations on the net would be a great plus to a music system. Well this one does not disappoint.
Pros: very comprehensive music system easy to install great speaker sound
Cons: Connection to the internet may require a call to tech services Be sure to buy the LAN adapter if you plan to stream music
Summary: I did not find this product to be compatible with SIRIUS radio which I needed to complete my home audio system. I subsequently returned the product and was provided with a full refund by Crutchfield.
Summary: Bought this system after being disappointed in a Bose Wave III system (sounded pretty good for a compact unit, but didn't sound as good as other systems for the price). I bought this one partly on the basis of an expert review. I've only put a few hours on the Onkyo so far, but am really impressed with the sound and it packs a ton of features into a great package for the price. I'm an old-school guy and listen to a lot of old rock, blues, soul, etc.
Pros: Great sound & features.
Cons: Rear USB doesn't seem to let you use it as an input Some settings require navigating through several menu choices iPod can't be controlled from the iPod, you have to use the Onkyo's controls and they're not as slick as the iPod's.
Summary: Great bookshelf unit. After reading some of the reviews I was pleasantly surprised by how easy it was to set up and connect to my network With the UWF-1 adaptor. Very good sound that can fill a 14x20 room with large entry ways. Only recommendation I would make if you are considering these items is, if you want serious low end bass, you may want to invest in a powered sub. This unit sounds great, but it won't rattle the windows.
Pros: Size, Sound Quality, Ease of set-up and use, price
Summary: I wanted a small unit for a bedroom apartment. I wanted media flexibility and at a reasonable price range. I was very pleased with the simplicity and quality of the Onkyo. I did add a sub-woofer to broaden the bass sound. I like Classic Rock and was very pleased with the sound quality. I cranked up Led Zep, Who, and Heart and was very satisfied. I have a large CD collection and it plays flawlessly. I also stream Sirius off my Iphone with blue tooth.
Summary: Was looking for a small system for the bedroom. After reading several reviews and doing some further research online, I decided to go with this Onkyo system, and we're very happy with our choice. This is a well-constructed and thoughtfully engineered system that offers all of the features we were looking for and the sound quality is excellent! Very good value for the money.
Summary: Why buy something else when this does it all. Easily connects to a wireless LAN network for internet radio. Connects to an I-Pod or Smart Phone and provides excellent sound quality when connected to Onkyo's Powered subwoofer. Great for Movies or TV.
Summary: Beim Auspacken des Receivers und der Boxen aus dem beeindruckend schweren Karton fällt bereits die hochwertige, nahezu makellose Verarbeitung dieser kleinen Anlage auf. Die Installation ist denkbar einfach und auch ohne die mitgelieferte, ausführliche Bedienungsanleitung (Heft mit einem 48-seitigen, komplett deutschsprachigen Teil) ein Kinderspiel.
