Onkyo HT-S5200 Home Theater System First Look


Prices for home theater systems have absolutely plummeted over the past decade. If we were proving this in a court of law, Exhibit A would have to be the Onkyo HT-S5200 7.1-channel system.

This is an impressive little 7.1 system that is really priced right. What we like about it most is the fact that for $599 you get what is essentially a $399 A/V receiver. That means that you get 7 speakers and a 10-inch powered subwoofer for just $200....

Great Value Great Price


I have this set up and it sounds amazing. One thing to note though if you are using the HDMI Moniter you will need to connect a nother cable for digital sound

I have an old Pioneer surround sound system and really wasn't expecting much. But I should have--this home theater system sounds 100 times better and when I checked prices locally--the cheapest I found was for 599--shipping was fast and I will continue...

Great System


This is my 2nd home theater system that I have owned and it's great! The bass on it is nice and clear. The sound is pretty good at max volume levels. I would recomment buying bigger gauge wiring, but what comes with it is good too. I have owned this...

Great Product, Great Price


I was really impressed with the ease of set-up as I have never had a system like this before. I feel that this system has great sound quality once the speakers are set-up correctly. Great deal for a great price.

Product Specifications

Looking for a home theater package with some genuine caliber? Then the HT-S5100 7.1-channel receiver / speaker package deserves your attention. As one of Onkyo's second-generation HDMI-compliant packages, the HT-S5100 gets the best out of high-definition video sources and lets you connect up to three 1080p sources for switching to one display. But a quality home theater package isn't defined by video alone. The HT-S5100 packs 1200 watts of overwhelming power, backed up by Audyssey room correction technologies, to create the perfect surround-sound environment. This is also Onkyo's first home theater package to come with a dedicated dock for iPod playback. With the right gear, you can even connect and subscribe to SIRIUS radio. And fleshing out the receiver is a 7.1 speaker package designed to sound even better than it looks when matched with the latest high-definition displays.
