Excerpt: I use this product as my main entertaiment source since I use it for everything A/V related when I'm home, is a good quality product you can get for a reasonable price, the only thing i don't like about it is that it makes noises when switching from one type of audio to the other, for example if you change channels and the audio format is different you will hear a click sound form the receiver swiching modes. other that everything elese is Ok.
Pros: Clear Sound, Easy To Set Up, Interfaces Well With TV, Thundering Bass
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! We have a relatively small apartment, but I could absolutely see this system filling out a much larger space. We had to turn the subwoofer down so as to not have the neighbors at our door with torches and pitchforks.

Summary: This home theater system is awesome. I did experience the "dead subwoofer" but found that just unplugging it for a few minutes and plugging it back in seemed to fix it. haven't had an issue in weeks now. The sound from this system is amazing. I can't really imagine it sounding much better. The highs are high, the woofer booms nice and low but does sometimes reach it peak if I have it up loud during a space movie or something. Buy this sound system. You won't regret it.
Summary: I purchased this about a month ago. The setup was easy and everything sounded great! Then about 3 days in, the subwoofer died. I replaced the cable and tried leaving it unplugged from power for a while and nothing got it working again. Amazon was great and replaced it, and it worked great again... for a week. I've now lost a second subwoofer! I contacted Onkyo this time, and so far I'm not happy.
Summary: Perfect for our living room! I would give 5 stars but the sub woofer speaker blew when my Boyfriend turned the volume up bummer but we replaced it with a regular 10" woofer that is actually made for the car and it is almost even better now!
Summary: Fantastic surround system for All-in-one setup. Prepare to buy some more (better) wire though which is expected. I suggest picking up a new sub woofer wire as well. Overall, this system has proven itself over and over with unbeatable sound, settings, ergonomics, and appealing looks.
Summary: I'm not an audio expert, but I like it so far. I don't have much to compare it to as it's the first surround sound system I've used. I mounted four of the speakers (the right and left surrounds, and the back right and back left) to my walls (very easy to mount using single screws/wall anchors) and ran cable for them through the walls to the receiver.
Summary: This receiver was great for one month. Now the subwoofer has stopped working altogether. No blue light indicating power, no signal, nothing. After browsing the other reviews, apparently this is a pretty common problem. I called Onkyo's customer support who suggested that I would need to ship the subwoofer (or possibly the whole unit) back to NJ since there are no other service centers in my area. No thanks. I've already paid enough money.
