Onkyo HT-S3300 5.1-Channel Home Theater Receiver/Speaker Package
25 July 2014
Excerpt: I have had m share of Audio systems in my time so I can say that there are all sorts of things that I look for when it comes to buying a home theatre system. Did this one past my test? Well, part of me want to say yes …
Summary: Like other reviews on this product, and other Onkyo receiver reviews, they seem to have a problem in the HDMI boards. They die. They probably use the same board design in all their receivers, even their newest models. Programming was not straight forward.
Summary: I've had this system for a little over a year now, and started having issues right away. I have had a few minor issues, such as pairing problems with the remote, but below are the two main troubles I've had with this system: 1. One of the HDMI ports went out after 6 months.
Summary: I bought this unit about a year ago. It sounds great and worked fine for a few months. Then I noticed occasional drop out of audio. This progressively got worse and then video started dropping out. I have a cable box, Blue Ray and computer all connected with HDMI.
Summary: Great sound at a low price. Thought about Bose but for the money you get a lot more from Onkyo. I combined mine with a Logitech One remote, Samsung 50" and PS3 and while it took me a few extra minutes to set up the final product is very nice.
Summary: I had read many of the previous reviews prior to purchasing this set. I am very pleased with the quality of the sound and in particular the bass. Some of the comments mentioned the passive bass as perhaps not generating enough sound. Well, we are in a 20 x 14 room and this is plenty.
Summary: This item started smoking and quit working about 6 mo after purchase. I contacted Onkyo for the warranty and had to drive the unit 25 miles to DTR a service center in Denver. They've had the unit for a month and still have not fixed it.
Summary: I decided to finally get out of the dark ages and get either a 5.1 or 7.1 surround setup. After doing some research, I determined that 7.1 was out of the question because I live in a small condo and there is no space behind my seating area for the extra speakers, so I went with 5.1.
Summary: It is hooked to a Comcast HDMI DVR with HDMI. Every time a commercial comes on, which is always low quality audio, you can hear the unit switch to a different audio setting. Every time you change the channel, you get the relays clicking and the sound changing.
