Onkyo HT-S9400THX Networked HTiB First Look


The Onkyo HT-S9400THX Networked HTiB is a product that defies its price point. At $1099 MSRP (sure to find this on sale somewhere), you're getting a full featured receiver and THX certified speakers.

While actual details and pictures of the components of the Onkyo HT-S9400THX Networked HTiB are sketchy, the message is clear - this is a product that defies its price point. At $1099 MSRP (sure to find this on sale somewhere), you're getting a full...

Onkyo HT-S9400THX


In the pantheon of great products that is our home theater in a box category, the Onkyo HT-S9400THX is a powerful and compact option. For its size and price, this system is a great deal. The central feature is its excellent integration of the THX sound...

The system includes a microphone that auto calibrates satellite speakers for optimum performance

The video capabilities of this unit don't allow you to view movies in their native 24fps format

The system is great for small rooms such as dorms or bedrooms and adequate for larger home theaters as well.

I'd love to review this


Couldn't tell you since I rejected the package because it was HEAVILY damaged

1.5 months after ordering i'm STILL waiting. Newegg keeps "trying to contact the warehouse" that UPS delivered the destroyed package to. No response from the warehouse, no response from Newegg, absolutely ridiculous

Owner for 3 years


I've owned this system for 3 years and yesterday. It died. No idea what happened. I went to bed watching a movie, shut everything down like normal, and woke up to use it and it won't load anything. I can't update because the network option is greyed...

Sounds is amazing ; Product was cheap for what you get in my opinion ; Loads of HDMI ports

Cheap cabling (easily and cheaply replaced on monopricee dot com (remove the last "e" in that because of newegg's dumb filter) ; Sometimes the speakers don't... load? when switching inputs. It's like the system didn't detect the input that I had just...

ONKYO HT-S9400THX 7.1-Channel THX Certified Network Home Theater System


I bought a Samsung System from HH Greg before I saw this item. I returned Samsung and bough this system. The package was delivered on time, no missing items, everything as described on the web site. It is easy to instal and configure. It gives my...

All around solid system


Newegg delivered this incredibly fast--this huge and heavy box came a day before some little stuff I ordered on the same day from "the major online retailer." Box was in perfect shape, no damage. I was pleasantly surprised at the finish on the speaker...

Refined finish, solid hardware, simple design, AMAZING sound, easy setup, included microphone for auto configuration, color-coded wires, huge subwoofer

Cheap wires (get your own--most people do anyway), no included wireless connectivity, slight speaker hiss at 82db THX reference volume, wimpy speaker mount brackets

Onkyo 9400


Thies featrures more bells and whistles than the average person needs but I bought it hopefull that the lin years to come I might need them. The box was huge and actually it ahd some tears and a couple holes in it. Appears it went thru a war in...

The small dent in one of the speakers is all I have to complain about in the few days I have been using it. I rated it a five becasue the unit itself seems very good

ONKYO HT-S9400THX 7.1-Channel


All in all this system is the best on the market for 800.00 hands down...period. I looked long and hard for months thinking how to spend the money I was gifted and saved on my own. ONKYO is known for their fantastic ability to produce quality sound...

I got this system for 800.00 and I think it is worth ever penny I have spent on it. As others have stated you cannot turn this system to MAX volume but I do not think that it is needed. I watch regular TV at about 45-55 and movies cranked to 65. This...

I have had this system for more than a year and I have only had two hiccups with the receiver. Both times receiver cutt off in the middle of a movie. Once watching TRON the other watching Avatar. These are both very sound intensive movies so I am not...

Not really a con but the speakers are a little large
