Great Home Theater in a Box VALUE!
 
I used to snub my nose at Home Theater in a Box (HTiB) systems. A few years ago, HTiB systems seemed clearly "inferior" to full-feature component systems. I currently own two full-feature Onkyo receivers which are excellent. HTiBs have improved dramatically in recent years. After some shopping around, I selected/ordered this HTiB for my friend/neighbor and set it up. This unit has amazing features, sound and quality for the price. Set-up was fairly easy and the Audyss...

Clear, Clean, & Warm
 
After having had this system for a week, I am now utterly impressed with it. Once you get all the speakers calibrated, replace all the speaker wire with some 14 gage, and get your room setup properly you'll find this system blows you away too.Strait out of the box you will not be impressed. But that will be the case with any sound system. They need to be properly setup.I HIGHLY suggest replacing the wire with METRA Ltd S14-100 MTA 14 Gauge Clear Speaker Wire. It reall...

Amazing HTiB for the price
 
Update 5/2/2008: I am still exploring the various capabilities of this HTiB, I received an HDMI cable box from COX and enabled the Dolby through the optical output, using the EX mode, the sound became astonishing. If you are using BluRay, it is better to leave it on PCM, but for regular DVDs, Dolby and DTS make an amazing contribution. This receiver is amazing, and still only one drawback, it does not process the audio coming from HDMI cable, it routes it to the TV (why would you want that?) but...

All the Reviews are True: Spectacular Sound After a Few Gotchas
 
I'm new to home theater and haven't bought a receiver in over 10 years, so I spent a few hours on the Internet researching home theater systems (what everybody calls HTIBs, "home theater in a box"). What convinced me to buy it was the cnet.com editors' video review, but the impression I got from reading about 50 reviews were:1. Skimpy wires (true, but may not matter)2. Auto-calibration makes setup easy (true, and is a must-do)3. More inputs than you need (true)4. HD...

Just Spectacular Booming Sound with all the options you need
 
First, the price of this system relative to other systems with exact and less features is UNBEATABLE. If you want to pay for the brand, such Bose/Sony for the same performance or less, by all means that is your choice.Second, the surround sound feature with incredidable bass is just amazing. At first I said to myself that most media does not even emit 7.1 sound but only 5.1, particularly HD cable tv. This system, actually takes a 5.1 sound source and emulates it in 7.1 if you ask ...

Overall very good, but no HDMI audio
 
I have had this system for about 9 months now, and I have no real complaints. The sound (with upgraded speaker wire and subwoofer cable) is very good, and the various listening modes are fun to play with, especially when using an iPod. The only drawback is the lack of "audio over HDMI." I will admit, I did not really know what this meant. Here's my take:It really doesn't matter if you have a standard definition (with or without upconverting capabilities) DVD player. You can outpu...

It's amazing how much your money will buy these days!
 
This system is an incredible value. I have had it for a week now and am really enjoying even my regular TV viewing more. With DVD , or HD DVD/ Blu Ray playback it will rock your house.. The receiver can handle all your devices and then some. I currently have a MOXI DVR , an HD DVD player, a Hi Fi Stereo VCR/DVD combo unit, and a CD player connected with inputs to spare. The Dolby matrixes it provides cover just about any listening situation you may encounter. The custom Onkyo DSP presets ar...

Great sounding all in one with a good price
 
The system that this HT-SR800 replaced was a Kenwood VR6050 receiver with Teac speakers.About a year after I installed the Kenwood I purchased an Onkyo HT-S590 for my bedroom. Same specs pretty much as the Kenwood but the Onkyo just blew away the Kenwood. So when I was looking for a more powerful system I went right to the Onkyo. Im not disappointed in the sound at all. Setup was a breeze for the Onkyo especially after struggling a bit setting up the Kenwood. I used the automatic speaker set...

Blows you away
 
I tried this out at Circuitcity and immediately was impressed by the quality of sound compared to the $1000 Denon system sitting next to it. After much debate, picked it up, and simply blown away by the clarity of sound while watching 300. I have a Sony 5.1 system before and this beats the crap out of it. I am not going to be using HDMI in the near future but its good to know it supports all the latest encodings (DTS-HD, True HD) so its future capable for the next 2-3 years.The only ...

Great value for the money
 
Is this the best 7.1 in the world? I'm going to guess not. But the best value? Well, my $0.02 are that's it's probably close. Obviously, I haven't bought a dozen systems and compared them all. But I did my research and did buy this one and it's pretty phenomenal. I'm just using it for movies. If you're a gamer, the bass probably isn't enough, I don't know. But the range of sounds that come out of those big front/centers is amazing. And the bass is good, very strong depending o...
