Awesome system, worth the money, and also new egg rocks


Read the manual, there is alot going on and it will help you get the most out of your system.

This system is the best you can get at this price range. It's sleek, the receiver is amazing and has the capability to be upgraded with better speakers ( the stock speaker are great, they sound amazing but the ability to upgrade in the future is always...

Now overall the system is great, but it does have some quirks. The Speaker wire is sufficient but you gotta make sure they are placed in the receiver just right, i had to fittle with them for about 30 mins. Also for some reason when i plug my xbox 360...

Surpassed my expectations


Newegg rocks as always. Bought Fri morning, at my house Mon afternoon, with free S&H!

I've had lower end home systems, and had no idea what I was missing. Sound is incredible, as is the bass. Watched a movie on my blu-ray player, and it just brings a whole new depth to the dvd. Really sounds better than the theaters, words are crisp,...

Make sure you have another person to help you bring in the box, it is over 100lbs

great system


if your looking to get a great system that will last, this is one the get its worth the money!!!

System was the first surround sound i've bought, read alot of the reviews before purchasing and the system as been great, very clear sound you can hear every pin drop makes watching a movie 1000 times better. Very easy set-up I recommend using HDMI for...

Speaker stands come with the wires already ran through them, Speaker wire was very small i already knew that before i purchased the system, so i went out and got 16GA wire for it.

Simply AWSOME!!


Would have been good if all the speakers came with stands(had to buy 4 more). Speaker wire could have been a better guage and maybe could have came with bananna plugs(just my 2 cents).

Has Everthing you want in a surround sound

Awesome System With A Few Quirks


I purchased this system of another website and also it was factory reconditioned. I have however purchased many products off of NewEgg and sincerely recommend it.

This system will rock your socks off. The audio quality is very good and the 7.1 channels really gives you the extra detail that a 5.1 would leave out. The Audessy Automatic Speaker Set-Up was a breeze and helps configure you're system for whatever...

First of all anything that follows is just nitpicking: The audio is great but the video upscaling is a problem. By streaming in composite video and upscaling it, there is a flashing bar on the top of my screen. Also I noticed if I attempt to connect...

Great bang for your buck


I would have given them 5 stars if they included better cables...but then again, it's a stock system.

Great HDMI upconvert and sound. Also subwoofer is good quality. HDMI switching is hard to beat....

Speakers could be better, as well as the provided cables. If you go and spend a bit more on cable wiring, you won't be disappointed with the system.

The Best Upper Mid-Range HDMI Receiver!!!


I would not trade this system for anything except the Onkyo 9100 THX system. Speakers are great, The stands are strong with heavy bases. The sub woofer isn't as heavy as you would think.

I purchased the Digital Lifestyle 42" LCD TV & realized I wasn't getting the full use from it. I did so much research on the best Home theater I could find in my price range. $799 was not in my price range. Oddly enough I found it cheaper elsewhere and...

1.Price is MSRP on newegg, I found it for $599 + shipping elsewhere.

I'm not sure how this setup would fare in a large home theater room. I'll try this system out when I buy my first house in the near future.

I'm an audiophile. But I currently live in a tiny apartment. The setup was ridiculously easy. Mount your speakers, run good cable (don't use the stuff that's included), hook up, and use the automatic speaker setup. It's more than adequate for small...

Cables. Get some better ones.

It took me months of research before I decided to get the Onkyo Ht-7100. I visited several websites looking for reviews and opinions on several Home Theater Systems. Just like whoever is reading this, I wanted to get HTIB system that has top-notch...

Great Sound, Many decoding options, good video upscale, 4 HDMI inputs, Ipod dock, Remote controls Ipod.

Length of Setup, Subwoofer is big...whoa!!!

Home theater System


Money well spent. I am currently setting this system up as 5.1 system, saving 2 of these speakers as back ups just in case if something blows lol.

Very good speakers and system. It pars well to more expensive systems but the cost to performance ratio truely is high remarkable. Very Crisp and Brilliant sounds.

I wish it had included an additional set of speaker stands. Is that really asking too much?

Product Specifications

The HT-S7100 includes powerful 130 watt-per-channel A/V receivers with HDMI inputs for up to four sources, including internal processing for the latest high resolution audio formats and 1080i video upscaling. The receivers are matched with a high-performance 7.1-channel speaker and active subwoofer package, and the company's highly regarded iPod dock. For connectivity, the HT-S7100 A/V receivers feature four HDMI inputs, including support for 1080p video and DeepColor capability. There is internal audio processing for the Dolby TrueHD, Dolby digital plus, DTS-HD master audio, and DTS-HD high resolution audio formats, making it possible to extract the full audio potential of the Blu-ray disc format. For video, the receivers include Faroudja DCDi Edge processing that is capable of upscaling all video inputs to 1080i resolution for output via HDMI, improving picture quality and simplifying the connection to HD video displays. Onkyo's HT-S7100 features seven satellite speakers and a powerful subwoofer for deep bass reproduction. The front L/R and horizontal center channel speakers each feature a pair of 3-1/8 inch cone woofers and a high quality 1-inch balanced tweeter. For a coherent and timbre-matched surround field, the included surround speakers each use the same drivers as the front speakers, but employ only a single woofer. The system includes a high-power downfiring subwoofer with a 10-inch cone driver with an internal 290 watt amplification module. All crossover points in system can be set to any of eight possible settings for ideal integration with the environment and listener preferences.
