Great HTiB system

Justin T., Newegg
18 May 2011
  • Pros: Receiver is sturdy, plenty of inputs. I really like the onscreen menu for the receiver, makes setting things up a lot less chaos. The receiver alone is worth this price, I will probably replace the other speakers over time as money allows .
  • Cons: Radio doesn't really work when my PC is on. (PC sits about 3 feet away from the receiver) Probably isn't the receivers fault though.

Great starter home theatre unit

J. Forti "Amazoniac", Amazon
9 May 2011
  • 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.

The reviews were correct

  • 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.

Great value for awesome sound.

Anonymous, Newegg
26 March 2011
  • Summary: WOW... didn't know that Bulletstorm (PC Version) got 7.1 PCM sound before buying this system. Going to try other games.
  • Pros: 7.1 surround sound that doesn't break the bank. DTS-HD & Dolby Digital HD make Blu-ray movies sound as if you're there...oh yeah there's regular DTS & Dolby Digital for the DVD crowd. Like a girl on prom night...plenty of inputs. Plus it comes with a ipod dock that works with iPhone 4 & iPod touc...
  • Cons: No upscaling to HDMI from analog sources. I knew this going in so I'm not going to take a egg for that.

Great Home Theater Receiver System

Mickdog319 "EMinVA", Amazon
23 March 2011
  • 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.

Best system and sound for the money!

buckaroo, Amazon
10 March 2011
  • 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*)

Vernon, Amazon
9 March 2011
  • 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...

Classic Example

Heath C. Flor "Kik", Amazon
7 March 2011
  • 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.

User Review

  • Summary: Plan to replace all the speakers soon.
  • Pros: Great receiver, even without speakers this is a fair price for the receiver. Sub is fantastic as well.
  • Cons: Receiver is pretty heavy with all the heatsinks inside it and it does get pretty hot. I recommend good ventilation or you will burn it out quickly.
