Good Sound, Poor Quality, Poor Warranty Service

T. Troxel "Powder Head", Amazon
22 December 2011
  • 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. When I switched the inputs to analog everything worked fine. I sent the unit to Onkyo's warranty repair dealer who told me the HDMI board was bad. It took about 6 week to get it back.

Great deal!!!

  • 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. The lowest price Bose system I looked at was $999 so I got this one at a fraction of the price. Con: It should have come with the Ipod attachment but I'll spring for that add-on.

Very good set for the money - good value

Howrey2002, Amazon
25 April 2011
  • 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. I even had an active one that I was prepared to use but the one that came with this set is more than good enough. The speakers are crisp and clear and set up was easy.

Avoid

Kari L. Barton, Amazon
20 April 2011
  • 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. I've called Onkyo customer relations and "Don" told me they can take as long as they want to fix the unit. Update, they still have the unit in repair 2 months now.

Old School meets New School for a HOME RUN!!!

Sean "Sean", Amazon
28 December 2010
  • Summary: Bought this for my folks. I have owned this same model line of Onkyo 5.1 speaker/receiver technology for 4 years now. Mine only has 2 hdmi in/1 passthru... The sound is absolutely incredible for the money. I am an "audiophile" and this Onkyo system might be the best value for the money on the planet! I have now heard most of the competition and All I care about is the end result: rich, powerful, naturally balanced sound! If there is better, I would be shocked...

Great for movies, not for music

P. P. M. G, Amazon
24 December 2010
  • Summary: I bought this system 3 weeks ago, and I want to be completly honest with this review. This system it's great for movies, I have a Sony Blu Ray Player BDP-S570 and the sound it's really good. At the begining I had problems to bitstream HD Audio (DTS Master and Dolby TruHD) but after some settings started to work. But....for music it's not, NOT GOOD!

Onkyo HT-S3300 5.1 channel home theater

Charles F. Hushbeck, Amazon
21 December 2010
  • Summary: I have hearing loss. My new flat screens' sound quality is really poor (for me). But after hooking up the Onkyo sound system, I enjoyed listening to TV and movies again. If I were to complain about anything, it would be about the directions that came with the product. The tech writers assume everyone is as versed as they are hooking things up. It didn't help that I was connecting various brands.

More than a "Best Bang for your Buck"

Beaver "Beaverboy", Amazon
16 December 2010
  • Summary: People say this system is a "Best Bang for your Buck" system...it's actually a best bang system period. I would've paid $499 for a system like this. Setup was easy, sound is incredible...OSD is fantastic. Sub is loud for being passive and audio is crystal clear. If you get sick of the speakers that come with the system you can easily switch the speaker setting to "large" and upgrade your speakers as you see fit. I have it hooked up to a PS3 (slim..
