Summary: I very much enjoy mine. It is hard to find a system for this price that sounds good and is reliable. I have had others in the price range that were poor. Pros Price, made by an audio company, solid electronics with plenty of sound shaping options,good remote,reliable,optical and digital inputs, Good...
Summary: I have another Onkyo unit that I just love and got this as a gift for my other TV.. The first unit I got was bad.. it would make odd sounds when changing the channels and had a static sound to it.. I took back and got another receiver..
Summary: I purchased this as a Christmas gift. It was an Onkyo factory reconditioned unit, so I felt confident it was factory tested would work well. It does fill the room with sound and the channel separation is good. I was impressed with the front and rear speakers. The center channel sounded great.
Good value for money but subwoofer could be better

Summary: This system has really good sound quality and for sure it's a great purchase for its price. It has many cool features and for a small to medium size living room, it is powerful enough to satisfy you when watching movies or listening to music.
Summary: I looked at many systems before deciding to buy this one a few years ago, my first entry into Home Theatre. If you have a DVD/Blue ray player or a cable box with the surround outputs, hooking it up through this system using the digital optical or coaxial inputs adds a whole new dimension to music or...
Summary: Instead of a DVD player with speaker outputs, Onkyo has opted to make affordable a real stereo system with a real receiver. The entire line features better than average receivers with varying degrees of speakers and speaker cabinets, the HT S590 geing the least expensive of the bunch.
Summary: ~~Please keep in mind this is not a $5000 BOSE system" I got this brand new for $150 in December 2006. So it was the cheapest HTS you could find that came with a stand alone receiver (a basic receiver even costs over $100, right?).
Summary: For the price, the Onkyo HT-S590 is a good value. The instructions for connecting all the components could have been a little clearer, but once I worked through them and changed/added some connections, the system works great.
Summary: I bought this HTIB more for the receiver than the speakers. My 11 year old Sony just blew up, and I wanted a basic system to continue to listen to DVDs in surround mode. I already have some decent satellite speakers and a center speaker, so I didn't really need the speakers that came with this.
