Summary: I also have an Onyko 5.1 home theater system in my basement, I bought the 7.1 because it has 3D pass-thru. I like everything about it except for the subwoofer, which seems to be a common complaint with this model.
Summary: Had it for two years now. Sound is amazing. Should of bought the 5.1 channel considering alot of movies export to 5.1 but video games feel like a roller costar and with this bass is so powerful to make an impact on sound that I leave it at 1/4 of the volume.
Summary: So far the system is working excellent. My theater room was pre-wired and i can understand a complaint about poor quality of wires which came with system. I also used my own better quality cable for woofer and so far it has been responsive as expected.
Returned my RCA and replaced with this! Wonderful choice.

Summary: Fantastic item. Before the Holidays we purchased a cheaper RCA system at WalMart. It kept cutting out randomly though Thanksgiving and Christmas. We finally had enough and bought this unit and had it before New Years. It is about double the price we paid for the RCA, but easily 4x better.
Summary: Sound is great for the price, but ultimately you get what you pay for. Sub died after three months of use. Capacitors blew up / melted all over the board. I've never ran it at anything above 25% volume.
Summary: I only used the sub a few times before it started making a buzzing noise. I unplugged it at the time and did not think much of it. Then I turned the sub back on a while later and had music playing. I came back after 5 minutes and the sub was SMOKING!
The first one worked great. I hesitated to purchase this one based on ...

Summary: This is the second Onkyo system I have owned. The first one worked great. I hesitated to purchase this one based on all of the complaints related to the sub-woofer. My sub-woofer died within 2 months of purchase. The warranty / repair process is ridiculous. I will not purchase another Onkyo product.
Summary: Took a little bit of time to figure out how to set it up to get surround through all 7 speakers for television, music, etc...not super intuitive...but once we got it figured out, we love the system!
