I've heard better

Nozama in NC, Amazon
22 April 2012
  • 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.

Integration Problem

M. PARK "MJ", Amazon
23 February 2012
  • 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.

Not bad, but not great either.

  • 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.

you get what you pay for

  • 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.

Ok, but not great

  • Summary: Ok, but not great. I had hoped the addition of a centre channel would lift the performance of this system, but it hasn't really. Results are ok but I've heard much better.

Not blown away

Fussyduck "AL", Amazon
23 March 2013
  • Summary: Ok you may ask what do I expect for the money. First it should be said the reason I tried these out is because I was looking for the best bang for my buck with the least expense, wires, components taking up space etc for my modestly sized flat. I know that everyone has different tastes and requirements so I will only say this. I found these speakers inadequate for use with watching tv or dvds.

Onkyo SKS-22X 2.1 - Costosi ma necessari

Ful, Amazon
12 November 2012
  • 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,...

A bit disappointing

st, Amazon
3 December 2011
  • 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.
