Summary: The Onkyo LS3100 is a good 2.1 speaker system, but it doesn't blow me away. When you are able to send a Dolby Digital 5.1 signal to the unit, it does an excellent job of rendering it with a good pseudo surround experience. For all other signals, including 2-channel sources, it doesn't sound as warm and filling as the Bose Cinemate II GS (which is now at a comparable price point). Listening to 2-ch sources on the Onkyo for prolonged periods can actually cause ear fatigue.
Summary: In my opinion, LS-3100 is a good sound system to improve sound quality during normal TV watching and listening to radio or music (by airplay + Apple TV + an old smartphone). It is particularly suitable to people who watch movies non-frequently, say once or twice per month. I don't mean the sound quality is bad for movies, but the so called surround effect offered by SRS WOW HD is REALLY insufficient.
Summary: We have a huge living room (more of a great room) with vaulted cathedral ceilings, so when I saw the size of the Onkyo speakers I was skeptical they would be able to fill the room appropriate with sound. Rest assured, the fears were unfounded. The system sounds spectacular in a large room, the design of the speakers and subwoofer being very efficient and making the most of its watts.
Summary: Performs exactly as advertised! Relatively easy to install and really gets the job done of bringing out the full stereo and bass sound of the t.v. as well as music channels! Completely satisfied. Probably will get another one for the upstairs t.v..
Summary: I don't want to leave my house. Why go to the movies when this system gives my comfortable living room all the power and sound I need. The system was easy to install and works effortlessly.I easily am able to use my phone via the bluetooth in my living room. The subwoofer is incredible for the size. I'm freaking shocked!! When I feel like being an a%#hole , I open my door while it's turned up and the cops get called out to my house.
Great System - Despite the high price it's worth the cash!

Summary: Have had this system 2 weeks and it's pretty spectacular. Auto detects sound device inputs therefore turning itself on/off automatically with the TV/Blueray/etc; great feature that removes the need to really ever use the included remote after initial setup. The blue tooth input is awesome, with the push of a button it instantly hooks up to my iphone, basically allowing this system to operate as a home stereo system; with apps to my favorite radio stations installed on my...
Summary: I bought this product as a gift for my Best Friend. I needed to be sure that it's working before I give it to him so I tested it. What an impressive system it really is. The wireless subwoofer compliments the beautiful satellite speakers and sounded so good. He'll surely appreciate Onkyo's superb sound system.
