Summary: Onkyo is one of the Pioneer world class audio company. This system is well equiped with a powerful 7.1 Channels Pro-logic and XM satellite receiver technolgoy. The CinemaFilter cut down the noise level of the original audio/video sound track noise. The NeuralSurround produces the best ever surround sound beyond the price range of this system.
Summary: sweet sound , easy to use, sooo! much better than sony, and the bose,system,not even close. also free shipping.it just gets better every day. oh hey one half the price of the other systems, [crazy] trust me on this one. you will not be sorry!!
Summary: After 2 tons of research we bought the 790 and am very happy with it. A fantastic value for the money. Several reviewers mentioned how hot this unit runs.With this in mind I sealed the compartment on the entertainment center where the Onkyo lives and installed a 32 cfm "muffin" fan to pull air over the top of the unit and discharge the hot air out the back. Using a digital temp. probe the compartment temprature dropped from 105 to 76 degrees F.
Summary: I cannot believe all you get for such a low price. The speakers are not going to win any kind of beauty contest but (oh my) the sound is huge. I checked out a lot of speakers, and for the price, nothing can touch this system. I would highly recommend them.
A great home system with a lot of features. 4.5 stars

Summary: This system is a very good home system on a sub $1000 budget. The center and front speakers are excellent for anything from standard broadcast radio to your biggest blockbuster action movies. I am a little disappointed it the surround speakers. They require extensive tuning, and don't complement the front speakers like they should. However, when you get the system completely tuned in, you can sit back and watch your socks being rocked.
