Cost effective sound system that'll knock your socks off

Summary: I did plenty of research prior to buying this product. Depending on your specifications this is, in my oppinion, the best mid-range priced system available. It arrived in a 4 1/2 foot tall box and in good time from the distributor.
Summary: OK, if you are looking at this review you are probably the owner of a room that you are calling your "theater room" or the like and you are looking for a good system for around $500 or less. Well, I have good news, you just found one.
Summary: The spirit of my comments may also be applied to the cheaper ($299 vs. $499) Onkyo HT-S580 system as well, and also I see there's an intermediate Onkyo HT-S680. I'll let others comment on their subjective reactions to this system versus other systems.
Summary: Outstanding system for a modest budget. I purchased this system for 400 and tax from Circuit City. The handling of dvd surround is superb and it brings movies to life; as is stereo music from CD. The radio receiver is also outstanding. I'm listening to my CD collection with new ears.
Summary: Ok, this is not a high end multi-thousand dollar system. It is a well priced, excellent sounding system for anyone. I installed the system in my "home theater" room and the sound it generates is excellent.
Summary: This was my first experience installing a pre-configured system. In the past it has always been individually picked components. I have to say for the price, this system is PERFECT. $439 frankly is too low of a price.
