Onkyo HTX-22HDX (black)

 

Stylish 2.1 design; AV receiver built into subwoofer; three HDMI inputs; can be upgraded to a full 5.1 system.

Subpar sound quality; no minijack input or iPod connectivity.

The Onkyo HTX-22HDX is a slick-looking 2.1 home theater system with good features, but its sound quality leaves a lot to be desired.

Onkyo HT-S580 Home Theater System Conclusion

 

As the gunshots flew by and the cars swerved back and forth in the highway chase scene from "The Matrix Reloaded," the surround effects were highly detailed and accurately produced as the action panned from left to right.

Excellent sound; easy installation; stylish

No S-Video or component-video switching; meager middle-bass response

The satellite speakers do suffer in the middle-bass range of 150 to 250 Hz, but the bass frequencies produced by the 8-inch subwoofer were sufficiently strong and deep. The onscreen dialogue was clear and distinct, and the overall sound quality...

"Great Surround System for the price"

 

I bought HTX-22HDX with SKS-22X for only $240. The speakers are very good looking in piano black. I connected the subwoofer with the HDMI 1.4 cable to the ARC HDMI port of my Samsung 8000 TV. I didn't need other cables to the TV. When I turn on the TV...

Hard to find a stand for the rear speakers

Consumer review by:

A modestly sized ultra smooth 5.1 that rivals 7.1 & 9.1

 

First off, crank the sub to peak performance and correctly set listening distances for each channel. Buy the expansion speakers (HTX-22HDX) that include the center speaker, and two back surround - this makes the listening experience flow buttery smooth...

upgradeable to 5.1 -> oh yeah! Also 7.1 replication, seamless high-def audio with 3d pass through, hdmi 1.4's, digital optical audio, various listening modes and tweaks, sub-woofer vibrates floor far smoother and realistically than my 250w Onkyo sub

Wireless satellite speakers would be gravy

Consumer review by:

Okay sound quality, but picture kept blinking.

 

Good amount of connectivity, easy to set-up, easy to use

Picture would occasionally blink repeatedly when watching through the system. Onkyo's SKS-22X speaker package to upgrade this unit to 5.1 is not available in the U.S. You can obviously purchase other speakers, but they won't match and at what price

Great decoder!

 

This unit for sound excellence and separation is awesome! Sub is ok but the amplifier clips (pops) on high volume lfe. its cool because it turns on with all my other components. do not believe that the other wireless extender will work because the sub...

Product Specifications

With a deficit of receiver/speaker packages that blend into your home both spatially and audibly - and deliver with the power and accuracy when it's needed most - Onkyo continues to provide with the release of the HT-S580 home entertainment 5.1-channel receiver/speaker package. With the HT-S580 supplying 100 watts per channel into its six channels, most would be satisfied. Look a little deeper and you will find that time-proven technologies, like WRAT (Wide Range Amplifier Technology) and Optimum Gain Volume Circuitry, show that the real power benefit lies in power that can be harnessed without distortion. Also, an H.C.P.S. (High Current Power Supply) transformer ensures there is power on hand for audio peaks and 192 kHz/24-bit DACs preserve the quality of the incoming signal. The 5.1-channel speakers have been designed to complement the receiver's drive power. Once again, quality, affordability and performance win.
