6 June 2013
Summary: I had a Bose cinemate2 in my living room and loved it for movies but not for gaming the onkyo hts5500 doesn't have the same sound quality however it is very powerful hideing wires for 7 speakers is difficult and speakers can seem bulky at times.when paying gamesyou do have an advantage knowing were the action is due to the 7.1 over all the sound system gives you a great verity of hdmi inputs a USB port RCA in put on front every thing you will ever need all though I would...
Summary: this is a great system with crystal clear sound! I like how I can plug my iPod/iphone and control it with the onkyo remote. I bought the unit as new display model and a week later the sub went out. i contacted onkyo and they paid for shipping and fixed it for free! hassle free! i love the system and the company!
