Unbelievable Sound for the Price...

 

Do yourself a favor and save lots of money by buying speaker stands separately, or, alternatively, just attach the speakers to your walls as Onkyo seems to suggest.

Deep, rich bass. Great highs and mid range. This system is almost $200 cheaper than the S7100 and the only difference is the included speaker stands. The system is absolutely amazing, and sounds as good as my friends $2500 system that he spent an...

The automated setup requires that you use all 7 speakers. As I currently only have space for 5 of them I had to set up the system manually, it was a bit of a pain, but it still sounds amazing

Awesome Setup

 

This is my first real home theatre system and i absolutely love it. I bought one of those dvd player HTIB and this system blows it out the water completely. Shipping was at my door in two days in good condition. Make sure you read the Bulk Shipping...

Great sounding HTIB. Reciever has 4 HMDI inputs that pass sound as well unlike the lower price Onkyo HTIB. Plenty of options to choose from. Also comes with one HDMI cord. Remote worked on my cable box. Has a calibration mic for easy setup of speakers

Speaker wire was too small in my opinion. I went out and bought some heavier wire

Great System

 

This is a great great system for what you spend. There are little quirks that are slightly frustrating to deal with, but the sound is still fantastic and in the end thats what really matters. I would recommend this system to anyone.

The sound is truly amazing for what you pay for this system. The speakers sound clean and the sub hits like a champion. The HDMI connections are great. Having everything pass through one HDMI cable to my TV is fantastic. The microphone that comes with...

The speaker wire that comes with the system is pathetic. I upgraded my speaker cable to 16AWG. I snagged 100ft for super cheap on m0n0price. You cannot rename the inputs on the system. For example my xbox is hooked up to AUX, my PS3 to DVD, and my Wii...

Best bang for the buck

 

It took no more than two hours with two people to setup this entire HTIB. It has fully functioned without any issue for five months now. I bought it after a long decision process. At the time Newegg was offering it at a price I could no longer resist....

HDMI ports, sound power and quality, Dolby True HD, easy installation and setup, and decent speakers

The only problem I have with this HTIB is the gauge of the speaker wire. It's not the nicest by far but easily replaced for not a whole lot of money

So far, so very good!

 

All things considered, a very good experience despite my fears. I've promised my wife that I won't be taking a leap of faith like this very often. I'm just glad everything went as expected so I don't have to sleep outside. :)

I was actually a bit nervous getting something like this from newegg because of the bulk item disclaimer they have...what if it's DOA kind of thing, because the delivery person is not going to stand here for 2 hours while I hook it up, but so far so...

Although I managed to make it work, I would love for the rear surround speaker wire to be about 10-20 feet longer, but fortunately the room I set it up in is not that large. Also for a higher-end item like this, including banana clips or crimping pins...

Outstanding value despite a few little quirks

 

I watched prices for several months and finally in March 2009 snagged it from NewEgg for $549 shipped. NewEgg provided excellent service. UPS delivered within a few days and box arrived in good condition. I'd definitely buy it again.

Good sound, great features, amazing price for such quality audio gear ; Receiver provides plenty of power for a typical home theater application ; The speakers are relatively easy to mount and they look nice

Bass sound is a bit on the boomy and muddy side. It lacks punch for listening to stereo music, but it's fine for TV or movies ; A few odd quirks, such as the fact the volume goes to 79, and the channel gain levels max out at 12. Reminds me of Nigel...

Component input failure

 

DO NOT buy if you're going to use component connections.

Sounds fairly good...not great, but good

If you're using the component hookups, it just doesn't work. If the volume is over 48 or so when you turn it on with component connections, it turns itself off again. If you turn it on at a lower volume and then adjust the volume up, it will turn...

Great Sound at Great Value

 

Best system in a box that you can buy in my opinion. I have had the S-6100 for a few months without a problem yet.

Best surround sound for the price hands down! 4 HDMI inputs are great especially if you have only a few. Very easy to operate and set-up. What was real awesome was the Audyssey Dynamic EQ which helped the system sound great

Speaker wires were pretty thin and cheap looking. Also, it does not come with speaker stands and you will have to find and purchase them if needed

EXCELLENT A/V 7.1 SYSTEM

 

I'll be back to update this.

THE SPEAKERS ARE GOOD, THE RECEIVER RUNS HOT, BUT ONKYO'S ARE KNOWN FOR THAT, THE ABILITY TO PASSTHROUGH HDMI IS GRAT AND THE ADJUSTMENT POSSSIBLE ARE WELL THOUGHT OUT AND NUMEROUS, THE CONTRROLER CAN CONTROL MANY COMPONENTS, THEY HAVE A BIG REMOTE...

Onkyo HT-S6100

 

Once again, NewEgg has fast, reliable service.

Amazing system. Not only was it very easy to setup, but it worked flawlessly. I have my PC, cable box, dvd player and iPod all connected to this and they work without issues. Great price vs other available systems

None, I even got free shipping with NewEgg
