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: 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: 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.
Summary: Einfach geniales Teil! Handhabung, Bedienung und Design ser Gut verarbeitet! Die Installation war einfach. Und nun zum Wichtigsten Punkt: Der Sound! Höhen, Mitten und Bässe einfach und gut einstellbar. Genialer Sound in jedem Bereich.
