Awesome set

James J., Newegg
5 May 2009
  • Pros: Affordable, great sound, everything you need in the box. Really nice having video pass through which isn't found on some cheaper receivers. It is very nice to sit down with just the receiver remote and flip between Cable, Xbox360 and Wii instead of having to sync up the TV's video with the receiv...
  • Cons: Can't really think of any

AWESOME

Joao P., Newegg
3 May 2009
  • Summary: HIGHLY recommend. very cheap for its performance. Get it, you will not regret! still on sale so hurry.
  • Pros: It sounds AMAZING. Very easy to set up, all color coded for the less tec savy individual. I cannot stress this enough... I'm a huge technology guy.. computers, sounds, etc... and it sounds great. I own a logitech z5500 for my computer set up, great set up... but this onkyo sounds BETTER for movie...
  • Cons: - None... optional IPOD dock that i thought came with it, too bad.

Amazing Surround

Corey T., Newegg
30 April 2009
  • Summary: This is great for the price. I highly recommend this to anyone looking for a nice 5.1 setup, or people who are just starting in home theater.
  • Pros: Ok. Reading the reviews, I wasn't sure if this surround was going to have great bass or not. Boy does it though. I set the dB settings for the sub to 10 (goes much higher though) and the bass in my room is already shaking things. The whole system sounds amazing to. Great, clear audio. And the pia...
  • Cons: I couldn't find my wire stripper....so I was using scissors for a little to cut speaker wire. Well the actual real con would be the speaker wire that comes with it. Its garbage. I bought some other speaker wire.

Great System

Sean B., Newegg
23 April 2009
  • Summary: There is no HDMI passthrough. I, however, decided I'd rather let my Receiver deal with audio and my TV deal with Video since that is their respective purposes.
  • Pros: I had been browsing Newegg to see what kind of audio systems they had available. I, originally planned on buying my components separately thinking I could get better stuff that way. I came across this system and read the rave reviews. Since it was fairly cheap I decided to go for it. I have not b...

WOW, perfect low budget solution

Justin H., Newegg
22 April 2009
  • Summary: If you have a low budget, don't waste money on other systems. I have a high $$ system too, and this one will hold its own against it.
  • Pros: This unit is awesome. It delivers way more than I expected. I actually had to turn down the subwoofer settings--and I am a 100% bass head, so that was awesome.
  • Cons: absolutely none

Great system must have

Anonymous, Newegg
19 April 2009
  • Summary: i just have the optical cable connected from the system to my lcd, i dont use the other inputs on the receiver i just got it for the features and 700 watts of power!!
  • Pros: nice powerful system for people on a tight budget, great surround sound and large speakers for amazing sound, got it connected through optical cable directly to my 40 inch lcd, alot of inputs to connect all your devices, the speaker wire included is long enough for a huge room.
  • Cons: a little on the heavy side but its expected in a system like this? no hdmi but doesnt bother me.

Great System!

Anonymous, Newegg
6 April 2009
  • Pros: Great sound quality, a huge selection of ways to hook your items up to the system, a must buy for the price.
  • Cons: I'm just nitpicking at this point, but the AM antenna that comes with it could definitely stand to have a longer feed line.

Sweet Sound

Anonymous, Newegg
27 March 2009
  • Summary: Price was awesome for this wonderful starter system. I can't really play it as loud as I would like cause of neighbors below me, so I really can't comment on overall power. It works wonderfully for me though. Newegg.com rocks, shipping was extremely fast got here in 2 days.
  • Pros: I brought this system and I absolutely love it. It has a ton of connections, everything but hdmi. I knew that going in as I didn't need them. The sound is crystal clear and the speakers are huge. The sub woofer has a really nice piano black finish. I needed the 2 optical digital audio connections...
  • Cons: none.

User Review

Michael U., Newegg
20 March 2009
  • Pros: Sounds just crystal clear, no amp hiss at high volumes even. Huge impressive system, not a discrete way to go, but I kinda like the big box bling. It's cheap for DTS 5.1 with this much power. Price is perfect. Well written manual and install guide.
  • Cons: Lacking any HDMI in/out or through. Slightly uncomfortable remote. Two optical ins and one coax digital audio ports, should be two coax and one optical in my thinking. Fairly cheap speaker wire, but using the stock ones I get great sound. User interface of the front panel is a bit confusing.
