Summary: it seems to me that if you buy something and it gets hot you would have the common sense to cool it off im no genius by any means, im just a regular 19 year old kid that bought this stereo my name is josh and I want to give onkyo props this is a great sounding 5.1 surround system.
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.
A Very Affordable, Dependable, and Enjoyable Sound System

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!
I was shocked to find that the sound quality from this system was far better than the previous Blu-Ray home theater system I had

Summary: Coming from a system that retailed for around $700 and came with a Blu-Ray player, I was skeptical of this system and it's price. I was shocked to find that the sound quality from this system was far better than the previous Blu-Ray home theater system I had.
Summary: I am not unintelligent but trying to figure out the many different kinds of hook ups from one bit of electronics to another is difficult. The toll free number folks were very very helpful and now everything sounds great coming through this system. Do not be fooled.
Great sound and more options than you may ever need

Summary: I have tried other more expensive sound systems and this one competes with all of them. At first, I had not planned on using it as an AVI switch, but it works so well and has separate settings for each channel that I only have one HDMI cable going to the TV now.
Summary: I have never owned a surround sound system and this was my first. I feel like I got a lot of bang for my buck when I got this for $250. I have an issue with dialogue being much quieter than the rest of the audio, but this seems to be an issue regardless of the equipment.
