Summary: I bought it hopes of eliminating the rear speakers in a 5.1 setting having failed that I added 3 more speakers and this is what I found :great staging of dolby surround the sub is a bit weak and I found the lack of user controlled treble and bass really limits it, the ability to add speakers to make it 5.1 makes it very versatile and comes on with the tv and controlled with the tv remote (volume) is very very nice and its decoding of pro logic as stated is incredible but...
Summary: I bought this system for a fairly large room (10x20). As it turns out the set-up isn't too bad but I now wonder if the transition/wires running through the system cause the picture to be diminished. If so, I don't think it's too noticeable. Regarding the sound - it does have pretty good sound. Generally, I'm happy with the system so I didn't return it. I bought it for around $200. For some reason the sound on the system needs to be turned up fairly high on many movies.
Summary: Pros: 1. Beautiful design 2. Good Audio quality 3. Simple Set up Cons: I've purchased Samsung UN46D8000 46-Inch 1080p 240Hz 3D LED HDTV (Silver) along with this Onkyo sound system and comcast xfinity cable box. The whole system can be operated by my comcast remote control, except I must manually change the input selection from ARC to HDMI1 on Onkyo receiver EVERYTIME I turn on my system. If you don't mind doing this, this is the system for you.
Summary: Very nice system once you play around and tweak the settings. I bought this to supplement my awful tv speakers. I was a bit annoyed with how high you have to turn the volume up to really hear the roundness of the system. And my biggest problem was the add on speakers Onkyo SKS-22X (center+surrounds) I guess this is a problem with Amazon.com not carrying the add on speakers. I've been searching high and low to locate the add on speakers without luck.
Summary: Bought this system for the tv in my bedroom because i thought it was time to "upgrade" my home theater. Up to this point, i had been using my brothers 3-year-old logitech computer speakers that he bought for $50. Because i had very little experience with sound systems, i just looked at some of the highest rated setups on amazon, and the onkyo htx-22hdx was among the top ones that looked good to me.
Summary: gets 5 stars for ease of hooking it up. on screen menu is easy. we have it hooked up HDMI. from a very basic review,its sounds ok. i have the sony htct 500 sound bar on another tv. the sony sounds better to me. this one has a tinny sound.ive adjusted it many different ways. im not upset with the buy at all. but its just ok. decent. sony is better sounding to me.
Pretty good, But I Had much higher expectations based on reviews

Summary: I bought this system because Onkyo is a reputable name in audio equipment (especially receivers) and also based on glowing reviews from amazon and other sites. I originally bought the Sony HT-CT15o soundbar system because I wanted a minimalist, simple setup up system, that's easy on the eyes and sounds great,perhaps phenomenal. I was severly disappointed by the sony soundbar even though it had so many positive reviews on amazon.
Summary: Prodotto indubbiamente di buona qualità, ma probabilmente troppo costoso in relazione a ciò che è (3 piccoli altoparlanti). Purtroppo è un passo obbligato per sanare l'errore iniziale di aver acquistato il sistema 2.1 ONKYO HTX-22HDX: prodotto di buona qualità anche questo, ma nato con un pregiudizio "originale": nella configurazione di base 2.1 non permette di utilizzare (perchè non attivabili) alcune sue funzioni di ascolto che sarebbero comunque utili, in simulazione,...
Summary: I bought the Onkyo home theater system (HTX-22HDX plus 5.1 optional speakers) based largely on a rave review by CNET.uk, which rated it 4.5 stars out of 5, along with happy reviews on amazon.uk's site by many satisfied buyers. I chose to give these more weight than the tepid review by CNET's American colleague, CNET.com, which awarded only 3 stars. Alas, the Yanks seem to have got it right. The sound is okay, but not much more.
Summary: You need these for the ht-x22hdx - don't order it without them as the sound is just not up to scratch. See my review on the main unit for info. Edit 14/10/11 Received delivery minus one of the rear speaker cables. This would have been ok as I am using my own (thicker) cable. However, main unit developed a fault and has therefore been returned. No need for these now!
