Onkyo HT-S5400 7.1 Channel HTiB First Look


As much as you might not want to admit it, you must know about recent Home Theater in a Box (HTiB) offerings. If you consider yourself an Audioholic, it is practically a requirement. The fact is that no matter how good your reasons or justifications,...

If you're looking for a full featured HTiB solution with the ability to upgrade as you go, Onkyo's HT-S5400 is a great way to go. $600 certainly won't break the bank, even in this economy, and the included speakers should allow you to get used to...

Dollar for dollar, best deal around


If you're looking into this set, you're probably getting your first set or are shopping for someone who is. I'm upgrading from a $50 2.1 speaker set so I'm not an experienced audiophile. I've been looking at speakers and HTIBs for weeks before...

Great Highs ; Great Lows ; Sound fills the room ; Very affordable for the features (Automatic setting adjustments and such) ; Multiple simulated 7.1 sound options for non-7.1 input which are effective ; Very upgradeable

Serious break-in period on the sub. When I first set it up I maxed the volume on the sub and receiver. Could barely hear it. By the end of the day it was shaking the house, so don't stress it if it doesn't sound great right away ; I don't want to say...

Great for Sale Price


Came quickly. Some of the wires were not long enough for the way I wanted to wire the system, but I got speaker wire pretty cheap and was able to wire the whole thing myself. It was pretty straightforward if you know anything about speakers. The sound...

Awesome Sound


I don't use the radio, don't even know where the antenna is now. The speaker cables do seem thinner than I would like but everything works fine so I'm not going to go buy anything new. I'm not a huge audio person but I think this sounds great and I'd...

I've always heard Onkyo is a good brand name. I've used this with a laptop, desktop and PS3, all sound great. The system comes with an auto-adjuster which works pretty well but I still had to fix it up a bit myself. It can get really loud without any...

Bass seemed somewhat depressing at first, but after a week or 2 it was great. I've read new speakers, and even more so subwoofers, have something like a burn-in time up front. This seems to be pretty normal with new sound systems so I cant count off

Better than I expected


Buy it !!!! It's a win/win solution.

Great sound and plenty of power for my 30x15 room. The auto setup for the surround sound was a surprise because it really works. It was very affordable and the black matches all my components

I can't find any cons. I don't really understand some of the other surveys. Maybe the small wire may look as if it will loose some power, but I didn't find that it was

Onkyo HT-S5400 7.1 3D Home Theater System


Overall, I'm very happy with this system, however I really wanted to give it a 4.5 rating.- Sound quality is very good, but finding the right sound mode for a source is imperative.- Bass is incredible, I can feel the vibrations clear across the house...

The receiver is fantastic. Lots of HDMI inputs, love the 7.1 option of having two front 'high' speakers, and the Audyssey setup mic makes getting the surround sound perfect WAY easy. The speakers are nothing to write home about, but I was replacing...
