Summary: My purchase of the Onkyo system seems to be a costly mistake, Receiver over heated stuck with expensive paper weight. Going to find a better rated system. Cant even speak to a representative the 1 800# always busy. I have a Pioneer system from the 70s still works like new.
Summary: I love the audio that comes from this device, but I have had some issues with the "handshake" problem with my PS3 when I use this. I think this is more of a issue with the Sony software, but it does cause for annoyance when I have friends over, and have to start messing with my setup.
Summary: Would I purchase this system again? Probably not. However for the price it performs well. Issues I have with the system are: Controls are not very user friendly. Internet connectivity is "just ok" (not great) No iPod/iPhone/iPad connectivity Cannot plug in USB and play video Pros: Sound is great.
great unit I took the updates and everything works great

Summary: I love the sound that this unit has it fills the room with clear crisp audio has all of the volume that I want and then some the only thing is that the wire that comes with the speakers seems light weight but it's a minor thing I'm going to replace it with 14 awg or 12 awg not sure which yet but the...
Summary: Very easy to install, all the speaker wires are color coordinated. Plenty of inputs and the on screen displays help with setup nicely. My room lent itself to placing the tall speakers on the side in the back vice in the front and that is working very well.
Summary: I'll admit, this is my first stereo I've ever purchased (multi speaker anyway). I thought long an hard about which stereo system to purchase, and ultimately this was the one I bought for my home theater setup. I was shocked by how small the satellite speakers are, but they do make a lot of noise.
Summary: First: this thing was super easy to set up. The calibration was painless and sounded great (once I upped the power to the Bass a bit for personal preference). Second: It has so many options and settings you can really dial in the sound you want on each movie.
Summary: What a great combination of product. Receiver is excellent though aarguably not as beefy as the stand alone onkyo I bought a few years ago as that has 3 discrete amps for multipke room control.
