Good product the second time around

  • Excerpt: Bought this as a gift for my husband, who has wanted surround sound in the living room for a while. Had a great experience with B&H, but the product initially was defective (two surround speakers and sub-woofer did not function). We sent it back and it was replaced very quickly at no cost to us. Everything works, husband is happy.
  • Pros: Clear Sound, Easy To Set Up
  • Cons: Confusing Remote

  • Excerpt: im a newbie when it comes to home theater...but this is very easy to set up. Sounds are very clear and it made my movie or game experience more awesome.Did a little research and found out that you should calibrate your speakers for better quality sounds. L/R front speakers 3db, front mid speaker 5db, L/R surround 12db, sub 10db.
  • Pros: Clear Sound, Easy To Set Up, Good Remote, Interfaces Well With TV, Intuitive Controls, Thundering Bass

Best HTIB under $300, possibly under $500. Five STARS!!!!!

  • Summary: For the money, this Onkyo system is an outstanding performer and a remarkable value! This is my 2nd Onkyo A/V receiver and it is sounds great right out of the box. Just hook up the color-coded speaker wires to the same color connectors on the speakers and you are in business. I searched and reviewed every HTIB (home theater in a box) and this one consistently got great reviews on every site. Not a surprise, as my Onkyo TX-SR604 has been solid for several years now.

Decent, but very cheap

Alex Delin, Amazon
16 September 2014
  • Summary: It's OK, but won't blow you away. This is just about as cheap as any 5.1 home theater system can be sold for without being complete garbage. I did have this for about a year and a half and enjoyed it while I had it, but since upgrading the difference is night and day. The receiver is halfway decent, and the HDMI passthrough is by far the best part of this entire system. If you use it to play loud music on a regular basis, the speakers will die on you in a few months.

Wow

Kevin, Amazon

  • Summary: Wow. I didn't think I could get anything of such great quality for such a low price, but I was wrong. I've had this for about two years, any the sound quality has been great the entire time. The one problem I've had with the amp is audio from my PC's HDMI output is quite choppy, but there are plenty of workarounds. Great speaker system for a great price.

Good Value, Doesn't Talk to Non-Onkyo Remotes, One Input Died After 18 Months

NWCT Iota, Amazon
3 September 2014
  • Summary: This unit is a great value. Warning: it only speaks to Onkyo remotes. After about 18 months, one of the video inputs became unreliable and would cut out periodically. We don't have a lot of devices, so we just switched to another video input and it works. A good unit that we've had for almost two years. If it died tomorrow I'd feel I got my money's worth. I will buy a higher end unit next time, though.

A Very Affordable, Dependable, and Enjoyable Sound System

Haiwang Yuan, Amazon
26 August 2014
  • Summary: I meant to return it after I purchased it not because of its quality. It was because I would like to purchase a more expensive brand for a change as I used a Onkyo previously. Since it was too late to do so, I accepted it, and it turned out great! The small improvements on the control provide easier commands. I particularly like the USB where you can plug in your iPhone and play your favorite music right away, and with much enhanced sound effect!
