Summary: great system for the price! Good job nice packaging as well. Great clarity with limited distortion for the wattage it pushes out. The subwoofer has deep bass for the small cabinet it comes in.
Summary: I had had the S5300 for 5 months now and have no specific complaints about the unit. I'm no audiophile but I am handy with electronics, and it still took me a few weeks to get the settings how I want them and experiment with different options.
Summary: After spending more time than my wife would like researching this item I was finally forced to either buy a stereo or go to counseling. I am glad that I chose the former. This is a great sound system. I primarily use it to listen to music from an MP3 player and it sounds great.
Summary: A huge box shows up, took two guys to bring it in, I start unpacking, very well packed to minimize shipping damage. The wires that came with the system will not be long enough for most rooms that should have a home theater system setup in it, had to take away a star for poor judgment on the company.
Summary: After careful research, I ordered this ONKYO surround sound system. I am 100% happy with my choice. At 375.00 it sounds as good as units Ive heard priced at 1000.00 to 2000.00 dollars. Install was easy and everyone comments the sound is GREAT!
Great receiver--does not work with PS3 (*white flashes and random power offs*)

Summary: First let me say this system is very nice for the money. Very good quality, heavy components. The box was 92 lbs and could NOT fit inside my BMW 3-Series. I had to open the box and put all the components in my car (had it shipped to my office) Anyway everything works as advertised EXCEPT this system...
Summary: This item is a classic example of "you get what you pay for". The speakers are excellent and I have no complaints other than the front ones are a bit on the heavy side. The receiver though has major issues. It repeatedly cuts out the HDMI signal on ALL ports.
Summary: I was a bit skeptical that I could get a home theater for this price. So far I have been very impressed. Had some minor issues with the HDMI connection and automatically turning the TV on. I have a LG LCD TV and some of the auto control features don't work all the time.
Summary: For many consumers, price point is of course important, but many are willing to spend a little more money if they get a lot more product, and that's exactly the case here. Except for the largest of over-sized rooms, this unit is going to crank plenty of volume.
Summary: Received my Onkyo HT-S5300 in early December 2010 and haven't had any problems thus far. My particular favorites include the great sound from the 10" powered sub and the 2nd Zone that the receiver can handle.
