Onkyo HT-S990 Surround Sound Package Review

 

For the past few months, however, we've been testing a speaker and amp package that defies general preconceptions of HTIB kits. Onkyo's HT-S990 is a f...

At the moment the IGN Gear test theater includes more devices than the HT-S990 can handle. We decided to route our Xbox 360 and HD-DVR directly through the receiver, while our Wii and PS2 went first through our Pelican System Selector Pro 2.0, which...

Onkyo HT-S990THX

Users liked the crystal clear sound provided by the powerful amplifier. The setup was easy and the controls were intuitive

Consumer review by:

Okay, bang for the buck deal

 

It offers the best performance at the best price that I know of. I could not find another 7.1 system with this performance for the money. If I would have to go back and buy it again, i might not. Home theater in a box systems will never be as good as...

Price, optical imputs,THX certification, FM tuner, and doesnt run too hot

HORRIBLE customer support, thin wires, poor sub performace, a little pitchy, and no adjustable crossover

Dream System

 

Before you get conned by some salesman into buying $2500 worth of Bose crap, look into the Onkyo THX certified home theatre system. It will quite simply blow you away and the hit on the pocketbook is quite small for what you are buying. The sound...

Quality Sound, Low Price, Features

No HDMI, Your friends will be jealous and hate you

Consumer review by:

Awesome sound. Shakes my couch!!!

 

I love the onkyo. Now the best part of watching movies is cranking it during the THX sounder at the beginning. I have never been able to turn it up enough to distort the sound. Wonderful to listen to music, sports, action, and pretty much anything at...

Wonderful audio. Very clean and crisp sound

I feel the inputs are too close together for the thicker component cables but this is true for most electronic devices

Amazing Sound in a 120 LB box

 

I was building my entertainment center and it became time to get a surround sound system. A friend had onkyo, and I looked at their site. That was when I came across this beauty of a 7.1 Surround Sound system. When combined with some nice stands,...

Great quality sound, no muddiness

No HDMI, somewhat large

Haven't played this yet, but love the original Sorry game. This should prove interesting. Not for younger kids - would recommend it for ages 8 and up.

Product Specifications

The HT-S990THX is the first system to meet the parameters set by THX for overall system performance as opposed to separate loudspeaker and amplifier performance. In effect, the HT-S990THX represents a high-performance, powerful multichannel solution that combines the convenience of all-in-one systems with the performance of much higher priced separate components. With full THX processing capabilities - THX ASA-derived playback modes (THX Cinema2, THX Music Mode, THX Games Mode) - you can be assured that this system brings out the full potential of surround sound for all entertainment options. Equally as important, Onkyo's Wide Range Amplifier Technology (WRAT) gives the system a perfect base for stellar amplifier performance.
