Onkyo HT-S780

Component-grade 7.1-channel receiver; component-video switching; A/B speaker switching; three full-size bookshelf speakers plus four smaller satellite speakers; 230-watt, 10-inch powered subwoofer.

You supply the DVD player; blocky speakers may turn off style-conscious buyers.

The Onkyo HT-S780's winning combination of extraordinary value, features, build quality, and sound quality will attract the attention of performance-oriented buyers.

Onkyo HT-S780


With games consoles, DVD players and AV receivers all vying for a place under the TV, it can be a hassle setting up a home theatre system. Knowing whi...

Separate AV receiver and DVD player, powerful performance

Not very attractive, bulky, audio lacks subtlety, no on-screen menu

The HT-S780 is all about big: big sound, big size and big features

Onkyo HT-S780


The plus-size Onkyo HT-S780 HTIB delivers sonic power and glory that are simply unavailable in more fashionable systems.

If the upgrade urge strikes, HT-S780 owners can add higher-quality speakers, such as Polk Audio's RM6900, and enjoy much better sound from the S780's A/V receiver. Most competing HTIBs' receivers employ unique equalisation that works with only the...

Computer Hook Up


I hooked my computer up buy buying a 5.1 sound card that had digital optical out (Toslink/SPDIF). There are good sound cards out there that are capable for around $xx (you can spend A LOT more, but in my opinion you're only buying a name).

Best sound for the price

Big Speakers

I can't believe this system is under 500 bucks. I picked mine up for xxx and got a free pair of speaker stands and free shipping. The sound is amazing, clarity, richness... and the sub is fantastic. It comes with a 1000 watts, 7.1 THX EX reciever!,...

Piece of Junk



Doesn't work

good for the price


Good old fashioned dolby stereo with plenty of power for movies but not a serious music system. Nothing beats studio monitors for music but for a multipurpose system this works well. The system is fairly large for my small room so think twice about...

Easy Controls, Great Sound, Old fashioned simplicity, Powerful

Bulky, Cluttered wiring, No on off switch for sub, Unattractive Design

Product Specifications

All too often, home theater packages disappoint - underpowered, poorly engineered, and over-rated. Onkyo has emphatically resolved these shortcomings with the HT-S780 7.1-channel receiver/speaker package. Just like you'll find in Onkyo separate components, core elements - WRAT (Wide Range Amplifier Technology), Optimum Gain Volume Circuitry, 192 kHz/24-bit digital-to-analog converters, a 32-bit DSP processing chip and an H.C.P.S.(High CurrentPower Supply) - provide the backbone for the home theater performance that is noticeably lacking in today's market. Admirably supported by the 7.1-channel speaker system (an impressive package in its own right), the HT-S780 distinguishes itself as a home theater system for the mid-to large-sized family home.
