Summary: All in all, I like this system. A friend of mine spent over 2k for his sound setup(7.1 Sony Receiver, 2 Polk A5s, and remaining satellites from the former Klipsch 5.1 system he had), and he is still impressed by what I got for the money I paid.
Pros: - Great sound and support. The 7.1 is impressive - 192KHz support for all those high end blu rays, like Akira and Chronos (the standard being 48KHz) - Good on screen menus - THX!!!
Cons: - Large system, speakers weigh 8 to 11 lbs, with the receiver and sub in excess of 25 lbs. Not Onkyo's fault, but UPS destroyed the box getting it to me, I am surprised the system survived. -Slight delay when starting audio on something (only the initial start, not pausing). - Noticeable single p...
Summary: I spent hours and hours researching HT. In this price level, Onkyo always appeared with the highest ranking. No doubt I agree with all positive reviews. I am very happy. Sound quality is amazing. Clear powerfull sound. You get much much more for what you pay.
Defective but sounds great (when not being serviced)

Summary: To be fair, the seller delivered the item on time and at a good price (5 stars for them). This review is on the product's performance and quality of Onkyo's in-warranty service. I was so excited and still am for the high quality signal this system delivers.
Summary: Have had for a year now, and this thing sounds great. The bas is so hardcore. Movies have never sounded better. Easily sounds as good as some of the super high end stuff. great for settingup multiple media outlets to play through ur speakers. U wont be dissapointed with this!
Summary: Excellent system speakers are a little bigger than I'd like but great quality. Doesn't seem to be as loud as I thought it would be but I'm still messing with the settings crystal clear at high levels though.
Summary: This is a one good HTIB system, best on the market. Great sounds. Technical set up not difficult and hanging of the speakers is convenient using keyhole. Be aware that HDMI version 1.4 is used, check for compatibility with TV. Used 12 gauge speaker cables as other reviews recommended. Great set.
