Small sound from small speakers


Owning a higher end Onkyo receiver I was hoping for some decent sounding Onkyo speakers. The speakers look fine enough at first glance but that is where it ends. The sound is small and lacks range. The grills of the speakers cannot be removed. The...

Onkyo Home Theater Systems SKSHT870


The first system came damaged and was replaced 3-4 weeks later in which I thought was very slow! And when UPS delivered the second one the system was left out in the rain in which it could have put in the porch under cover. This was laziness on the UPS...

Nice speaker for nice price


This 7.1 system offers pretty good sound. Much better than my old all in one box system. I paired this with my new Onkyo TX-NR609 receiver. I was on a budget and wanted to use all 7 channel speaker outputs. These fit the bill for price but Im pretty...

Great upgrade from old system!!


It was about time to replace my 10 year old 5.1 home theater system with a newer, more powerful setup. Onkyo was my choice because of the great sound and attractive look of the system. Rather than bundled, I purchased the speakers and receiver...

I bought this set for my sister for her birthday. I was a little leary about the price versus value for this set. I had read the past reviews on the website and took a chance. Not everyone has the same space or the same hearing capacity. I must say my...

Consumer review by: GARY JOHN LINDQUIST (



I had just purchased the 2011 Onkyo TX-NR609 AV Receiver and wanted some nice speakers to a part of the whole system. This receiver handles a 7.2 setup but, I do not have the room for the extra 2 speakers. Looking towards the future, I wanted to get...

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.
