Don't buy Onkyo


Onkyo service and reliability sucks. Stay away !

I've had this unit since 09 and i'm compelled to share my experiences with onkyo to date ; 1. Exactly 6months after purchase, the remote receiver circuit failed making the remote useless. Manual selection of inputs worked ie DVD, Cable etc ; 2. Then i...

So Glad I bought this


It took me forever to pick out a HT system and I am glad I did. or such a great price, easy set up, Great sound with so many features. I just wish I bought it sooner. I did have to upgrade my time warner dvr for this unit to work with it. The onkyo...

Great Sound with a lot of features plus pretty simple to set up. For the price it dosn't get any better

The speaker wire, you already spent this much money you might as well invest in some nice 14 awg wire

It was always my understanding that HDMI by definition is a compact audio/video interface for transmitting uncompressed digital data. But apparently Onkyo's definition is different. I feel that the very existence of this product is a scam. What is the...

great system


I went onto and this system is rated 2nd best on the market only to be surrpassed by its sister model.

This system is great! the sound quality is amazing and the Room Calibration Tool is very nice. I am very happy with it

the supplied wire is low grade and needs to be replaced. the surround speakers are not designed with a way to mount them to speaker posts or wall mounts...had to impovise

Insane value. Breathtaking sound. Deep bass. Gets LOUD. Very cool automated speaker postion optimization system

On/off button on remote works only when it feels like it

the wiring really sucks,i spend another $150 in 16 guage in wiring,the ones from factory are so tiny and short don't even worth trying to use them.No audio with hdmi,have to use a separate cable for audio other than that this thing rumble the house

Stay away, FIRE HAZARD!!!


Don't buy it unless you want little fire inside your house or apartment.

cheap for a huge free shipping package

If I could give it a very high negative rating, I would ; I've received this thing from newegg on Oct.19, 2009. It was OK for a while ; Today I turned it on. It played for a couple of minutes then turned itself off. I turned it on again and after a...

Great Unit for Price!


The unit sounds great, 7.1 sound with Xbox 360 running Rock Band at very high volume for about 8 hours straight and the unit handled it like a champ. It's oddly very easy to set up and take down even using the mic calibration. Very well made and pretty...

If anything it runs very hot. After the 8 hours *at 55-65 on the volume so near max*. The Amp was pretty darn hot, the plus is it's very quiet but maybe one or two cooling fans would have helped. Still an insanly awesome system for the price

Awesome Sound system - Onkyo is the Best - Especially for Price!


* - Don't Test this System out of the Box!! - * This System will Not sound good just out-of-the-box, without Adjustments & Fine-Tunning. 1- Do the Audyssey EQ Setup with the Mic First! And don't make Any Noise when this is Calibrating. 2- Turn ON the...

I Installed this Home Theater system for an Individual. Excellent Sound, once you do the Audyssey EQ Sound syncronization. Incredible that this Home Theater system uses a Mic to Adjust Acoustic-Timing ; Also Very Good for Music, once you turn on the...

X No Cons here! X ; You can't complain about how it Sounds, if you can't find All the Audio Adjustments on this System ; TURN ON THE DYNAMIC SOUND ; Throw-away the Speaker wire it comes with, and use High-Grade 14 AWG Speaker Wire instead ; (At least...
