ONKYO HT-S5300 Home Theater in a Box


Plan to replace all the speakers soon.

Great receiver, even without speakers this is a fair price for the receiver. Sub is fantastic as well

Receiver is pretty heavy with all the heatsinks inside it and it does get pretty hot. I recommend good ventilation or you will burn it out quickly

ONKYO HT-S5300 Home Theater in a Box


the on screen menu system is a great feature, but at first is sort of confusing to navigate; however once you get use to it, it's quite nifty.

Great Price, great overall sound, plenty of inputs and customization options

haven't figured out how to properly set up the zone 2 yet, i can get it to work powered, but the non-powered option doesn't want to work. probably

Onkyo HT-S5300


I have lost progression in playing some XBox 360 games because the screen will turn blue or flicker. Turning the unit off sometimes solves this issue, but it means everything else is turned off because of HDMI pass-thru. If I didn't experience this...

I have owned this for almost 6 months. This is an exceptional deal for what you get. Lots of inputs, including 4 HDMI. Nice remote that has good universal capabilities. Sound is very good for movies and television. Colored speaker wire makes for easy...

As a previous post has mentioned, I occasionally experience HDMI screen flicker. Speakers are bulky, but that's because the room I have it in is fairly small. Colored speaker wire is fairly thin, but what HT in a box provides premium speaker wire anyway

I have an ati 5770 video card in my computer and have it hooked up with HDMI and have the sound set with 7.1 on the computer it sounds amazing.

Easy set up. Amazing sound. I have my computer, PS3, and Xbox 360 hooked up. The sound from all three are just amazing. The sub woofer is loud and vibrates my entire house if you have old windows be careful it broke the one in my living room where i...

None so far

My HT-S5300 experience.


It took me 10 years to finally break down and get a HT. I'm extremely satisfied with this choice. I hope you all enjoy yours.

Incredibly easy to install and setup. Color-coded speaker inputs w/ easy to follow quick reference guide ; Audissey (sp?) auto-calibration feature that is enabled via the interface ; HDMI Pass-thru when receiver is powered down ; Great HT at a bargain

Did not use provided speaker wire

ONKYO HT-S5300 Home Theater in a Box


While there a few minor things that could be changed, for the money it is a fairly decent boxed sound system. When comparing the price, the speakers were free compared to when looking at essentially the next step up in the component pieces.

For the price, you get a lot for your money. I've had this for almost six months, and can't complain one bit about the overall performance. The quality is good, the hook ups easy, and the sound is great, especially compared to my previous unit that was...

I wish it had upconvert. that is the one thing you would think they would include on an upper mid-range unit. The speaker wire is a bit too short and way undersized for the units output, but it made do while I redid the family room and ran everything...

Great System, but....


This is really sweet system but these two problems are beginning to upset me. I have owned it 3+ months and have decided to write this review then call Onkyo to see what they can do about it. I will report if I find anything out! The sound of this...

Great sound, terrific bass, extremely easy on screen setup, price, 4 HDMI ports which eliminated all RCA cables, programable remote. The setup guide is very easy to follow and everything is color coded. The subwoofer is fricken huge

This system has numerous problems that I have read about at other sites. The main two are...1) the sound cuts out frequently. It will only be for maybe 1 second, but it happens in both TV/Cable mode and Blue Ray mode. This is really annoying. 2) The...

I have returned this once luckily newegg took care of the shipping great job newegg. But now I see the problem is endemic to the reciever and I have to decide between a return and possibly loosing a lot of money on restocking and or shipping or keeping...

Reasonable price, all in one system, good sound overall for the price

HDMI problems. This reciever causes my TV to have a problem with shaking, the image pops up randomly. It looks like the image bounces up and down or has horizontal white lines. Sometimes the image flashes. I do not have the problem with anything unless...

Awesome System


One heck of the deal for the price.

Awesome Systems. Easy to configure. The woofer sounds really awesome. Got it for 399 and free shipping. New Egg, awesome as usual. I have it a 5 eggs just because of the price I'm paying and it's still one heck of a deal.... Even though it's not...

Low quality remote control. Need to keep on clicking different mode to turn off the receiver and tv at the same time. My old Sony will let me press one button and it automatically activate the rest of the button to turn off all devices. Lousy speaker...

Product Specifications

Onkyo has built a reputation for making advanced features and performance more affordable for budget-conscious fans of home entertainment. Take, as a prime example, the HT-S5300 receiver and speaker package. At the heart of this 7.1-channel system, you have an A/V receiver sporting four of the latest HDMI 1.4 inputs - enough for all your high-def sources. HDMI 1.4 brings compatibility with 3D video and an audio return channel. With the HT-S5300, you can also adjust settings on the fly with a handy overlaid on-screen display. The receiver offers a broad range of connectivity options, such as a front input for portable devices and a universal port for one-cable connection of the included Dock for iPhone/iPod. High-quality Burr-Brown DACs ensure pristine analog conversion of all digital audio sources, including HD audio formats from Dolby and DTS. And Dolby Pro Logic IIz gives you the option of a height-channel set-up with the included 7.1-channel speaker package.
