Great Quality For The Price


Have only had this system for three days, but I have put it thru its paces. This Onkyo (HT-S3500) preforms like a high dollar unit. Has all the bells and whistles you would want and expect in a high end unit. You can not get more bang for your buck!...

Speaker wire not the best, but does the job

One speaker stopped working within 9 months of buying


The receiver seems nice. No problems with that so far

I have used this set of speakers and receiver for the past 8 months and recently I started to hear this chirping noise out of one of the speakers. A little frustrated about that

Good until the sound stopped working


Easy to set up and sound was decent.. used a digital optical cable to hook up from my computer to receiver to make my computer my home entertainment system

About six months in after using everyday the sound just stopped working... The receiver still works.. Everything seams to work like it used to but just no sound.. Used their website to troubleshoot and used all the tips but nothing worked... I have...

Awesome sound for great price


I am completely satisfied with this system, however, there are a few things I would change if I could. The first being the subwoofer. It is not a powered subwoofer, which tends to be very distorted when it comes to explosions in video games and movies,...

Great complete surround sound


I have it hooked up to a xbox and blu-ray player. Games and movies along with TV all sound great. Would recommend for sure.

Extremely easy set up and comes with everything needed. I am still using the wire that came with, but might not be a bad idea to get some different speaker wire. Sounds good and has a good volume range

This might be my remote, but there are times when the remote would turn the unit on/off or be able to switch between the different sound types. Not a huge deal for me, and might be an issue with just my remote

Excellent performance


Wise decision when selecting this unit. Enjoying the clarity, high volume and overall the high definition bass.

HTIB that is the Question


Glad that I came to realize that things could sound a lot richer and realistic and that it could be done without breaking the bank. Just wish that I figured it all out ahead of time. Note, do consider the Sony SS-F6000 as they are very good speakers...

I own the HT-S3400 HTIB which is virtually identical. When I first hooked it up it sounded great compared to the lousy TV speakers. After I while I came to realize that it lacked depth and range and left me wanting more. Had I thought about it I...

The only con for me is that I should have thought everything out up front, because in the end it would have been cheaper than what I have done because I spent 279 for the HTIB and all that I am using from it now is the receiver and unpowered sub

Solid for the price


The speakers are good and there's a good amount of thump to the subwoofer. Unfortunately you can't connect the television antenna to the receiver so you're stuck with the speakers in your TV for watching broadcasts

Great 5.1 surround sound!!


This is an amazing sounding system that's simple to set up. The only downside is the subwoofer is powered through the receiver without a bass knob on the sub itself.
