Onkyo SKS-HT870

 

Onkyo is known for having speaker expertise, even though it's not primarily a speaker company. That's because of Onkyo's success selling home-theater-in-a-box systems (HTIBs), which combine a speaker system and an AV receiver in a single box, taking...

A 7.1 surround sound speaker system; excellent sound quality; subwoofer blends well with speakers; can fill relatively large rooms; relatively inexpensive, especially for a 7.1 system.

Relatively large speakers; boxy design; wood finish lacks refinement compared with other options; spring clip connectors.

The Onkyo SKS-HT870 speaker package offers up tons of performance for the price, but it's not the most stylish speaker system.

Consumer review by:

"Really Great Sound System for the Price!"

 

Overall Opinion: EXTREMELY recommended. I'm no sound expert, but very picky when it comes to sound quality, and was hoping for a deep bass, full range system, which I recieved.

Decent sized speakers

The center speaker doesn't have any non-skid feet

Good speaker package

 

I have the Onkyo HT-S7200 but can no longer review it, I guess it's too old a system. However I will review the speakers and receiver separate. So, these speakers are driven by the Onkyo HT-RC160 which has 80wpc. The speakers are good speakers and...

Designed to work together and work well ; Good sound

Thin speaker wire ; Spring clip connection ; Sub can not pressurize large areas but does fine in smaller spaces

"extreemy clear and crisp speakers, though sub is weak"

 

overall, I highly recomend this speaker system, especially if you are looking for a 6ohm 7.1 system. I did a LOT of reearch and finding a matched set of 7.1 it extreemly difficult [as of 3/2010 when i was looking]. The boxy design is a little quaint,...

I used an onkyo sr707 receiver, and right out of the box I was impressed with the crisp clear highs and lows. the front speakers especially make good use of the extra space provided in the towers as reverb chambers. excelent tone matching

sub is a little weaker than the receiver can drive it has good low end sound, but not the couch vibrating throb that a good stand alone will have, it tops out well before max volume on sub. though down fireing and front port make up somewhat for that

Very clear sound. The blend between the sub and speakers is phenomenal. Decent look, aesthetics in person are better than the photos. key holes if you need them. Compliments my LG 50" plasma quite well

Spring clips barely left enough room to accommodate 14g wire

"The wow deal of the year"

 

This is the system I've been waiting for. I've done tons of research and with having a budget of 1200. to spend on a new A/V receiver and speakers, naturally, I wanted the most for my money, the best bang for my buck. I believe I pulled it off, to...

Product Specifications

For maximum audio impact, your multichannel Onkyo receiver should be accompanied by a full-blooded surround-sound speaker set. Fitting the bill is the SKS-HT870, a 7.1-channel system that injects power and vitality into all your movies, games, and music. The highlight, both visually and aurally, is a pair of dual-drive, floor-standing tallboy front speakers rated conservatively at 130 W. In concert with the two-way center and full-range surround and surround-back speakers - each also rated 130 W - they deliver stunningly detailed high- and mid-range frequencies. Meanwhile, at the bottom end, a superbly calibrated 290 W subwoofer adds visceral heft to bass notes and low frequency effects.
