Summary: They sound good. The pairing with a laptop is kinda frustrating. I don't like that this model auto turns on/off and the bluetooth is easy to use but annoying to set up on a laptop as well. I thought it was strange it didnt have a red and white input. Your options are aux, bluetooth, optical, or coax. The indicator lights absent from the unit would be helpful but the sound is big enough and I am using for the bedroom tv/game setup.
Summary: Just a couple reasons why I do not like this product. I generally like Onkyo but this was bad. 1- it sounds horrible using the audio hook up. the bluetooth is ok. 2- there is no real standby/ off position. as soon as you turn up the volume using a remote it turns back on at the volume you left it. 3- there are no tone controls (hid mid low etc) 4- there is a subwoofer volume control but it does not have enough of a range.
Summary: I really wanted to like this system. I love the brand, the system look really nice, and it feels quality. Unfortunately I found myself returning it because it sounds very muffled. High frequencies are barely noticeable, and mid-range sounds very flat, even in the vocal mode. At this price point I was expecting something better.
