Good system for the low price

Y. C. Cheung, Amazon

  • Summary: It was easy to install. The sound quality of the subwoofer is good but that of the front and surround speakers is average. I like the choices of the different listening modes provided by the receiver. They emphasize the sound effects for different sound sources. I replaced the front speakers with the Polk Audio speakers from my other system for testing and the sound quality is much better. As the experts say, the speakers are often more important than the receiver.

  • Excerpt: Product set at home as primarily sound system for TV and music, great sound, quality and performance.<br /><br />*The only letdown is the speakers don't have a standard mount to use with any mount system, you will need to buy some of their own i guess.<br />*The wire was too short for my living room, so i had to buy some extra wire, but it was ok.
  • Pros: Clear Sound, Interfaces Well With TV, Thundering Bass

  • Summary: This is the best Home theatre system for the price. I would expect this to have wireless speakers to make this the unbeatable in this range. the sound quality is even better than $700 models from other brands. I would easily recommend to anyone who is looking for the best entry level Home theatre system.

Really great system! Just buy the wire...

Donald Swing, Amazon
11 November 2013
  • Summary: First of all, I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 due to the microscopic, pre-cut length speaker wires that come with this set and the fact that there are no threaded holes for mounting the speakers, otherwise it would definitely be 5 stars based on performance. I am brand new to the surround sound system world, so I spent significant time shopping and reading an exorbitant amount of reviews on different products.

Great product

  • Excerpt: Great product, and great value. I knocked off a star because it runs HOT when placed in a cabinet, and who doesn't put it in a cabinet. I found a perfect solution though - I bought two 120 mm Coolermaster computer case fans and a 1 amp, 12 volt power supply, and mounted the fans on top of the receiver with wire ties. Problem solved. I have two Onkyo receivers in closed cabinets using this setup, and the both run much cooler.
  • Pros: Clear Sound, Easy To Set Up, Good Remote, Interfaces Well With TV

Great receiver, good sound, easy setup

Darwin Campa, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this as my main living room sound system in a new apartment. I haven't owned any similar systems. It's a solid performer, and the sound quality is probably as good as you can get without upsizing the speakers (which would be too much for an apartment). I have the subwoofer turned almost all the way down out of respect for the neighbors, but it still delivers nicely.

Only complaint I have

ALFRED DIACK, Amazon

  • Summary: Everything works well. Only complaint I have is that the balance of the speakers is not controllable. Wish it had that feature.
