Key Features

DTS-HD Master Audio

DTS-HD Audio delivers sound quality that matches the clear and vivid images of high-definition video. Blu-ray and HD-DVD discs deliver five times the video resolution of standard DVD and produce images with stunning realism. But that's only half of the story. You need incredible sound to complete the high definition experience and DTS-HD Audio provides the highest quality multi-channel sound possible. Movies come alive with sound as lifelike as the picture, and music becomes as real as a live performance.

Faroudja DCDi CINEMA

The Faroudja name is synonymous with high-quality video processing. The Faroudja technologies incorporated into our 2008 A/V receiver range give you the power to bring out the best from both high-definition and standard-definition video content. The Faroudja DCDi Edge video processor converts interlaced video signals to progressive scan signals and effectively eliminates video artifacts from HDTV images. The Faroudja DCDi Cinema video processor is a more sophisticated version that drastically reduces video noise without sacrificing image quality and sharpness. Both processors can scale standard-definition sources up to 1080i--and DCDi Cinema can additionally upscale to 1080p--for output to HDTVs.

Powered Zone 2

By dedicating a pair of channels on receivers with this capability, you don't need an external amplifier to enjoy an independent stereo audio source in a remote room. For example, on higher-end models this allows for a full 5.1 channel movie to be enjoyed in the home theater, while simultaneously sending a song from a CD (or other source) to speakers in another room.

Audyssey Audio Correction Technology
  • Audyssey 2EQ for Room Acoustic Correction: Tailors multichannel audio for your home theater by correcting problems both in frequency response and in the time domain (where most of the problems lie) for a clear, precise, and natural sound.
  • Audyssey Dynamic Volume: Maintains the desired listening level for all content while optimizing the dynamic range.
  • Audyssey Dynamic EQ for Loudness Correction: Solves the problem of deteriorating sound quality at lower volumes.
HD Radio Ready

Enjoy the crisp clear sound of HD Radio by connecting the optional UP-HT1 module on u-Port capable Onkyo models.

Customer Reviews

It sounds fantastic to movies, music and games as well.

I called Onkyo, spoke to a rep who gave me their closest authorized repair center and asked me if I could drop the unit off.

The auto setup for the speakers was a snap and the system sounds great.

This model is basically the same as S5300, with extra features:
1. Can up-convert all video inputs to 1080P and output through HDMI. S5300 can't do this.
2. Comes with a setup mic for Audessy to set up speakers automatically.S5300 doesn't have it.
3. Front Speaker is smaller than those of S5300. I hooked them up on wall they look better. The front speakers of S5300 are much bigger and the rear speakers are much smaller.
4. Subwoofer is taller and narrower than that of S5300. To me that is better.
5. Total weight is like 10lb less than S5300.

It is about $100 more than S5300. You can go with S5300 for cheaper if you don't mind those points above.

First off, I should say that I bought this from Newegg, since - at the time - Amazon had an estimated ship time of 1-2 months. I see they now have it back in stock for immediate delivery (at time of writing, anyway). Overall I will say that for the reduced price they have it at (less than $500) it's quite a bargain - and worth every penny.

PACKAGING:

I've included pictures of the packaging, since I assume that this doesn't really change much between either seller. Everything is packed and separated pretty solidly in thick styrofoam, the TX-SR680 receiver is located at the top, the subwoofer is at the bottom, and all speakers, accessories and cables are in between. There was some slight damage to the box in UPS shipping, but nothing out of the ordinary. The equipment inside was fairly pristine.

SETUP & PERFORMANCE:

The included wires with this system are 22-Gauge (for the front and center channels) and 24-Gauge (for the surrounds and rear surrounds) respectively. I replaced these with 14 Gauge wire purchased at Monoprice. That being said, I found it much simpler to use cheap banana plugs from Home Depot for connecting the wires to the receiver, since the binding posts in the back of the receiver are fairly closely placed and it's fairly tricky to thread the bare wire into the connections. The banana plugs allowed me to plug into the front, minimal fuss. I also used speaker pins for the spring clip connections in the speakers themselves, but that's a personal preference, since I like the neater look and I'm too lazy to strip wire :-).

You should also know that I'm using this as a 5.1 system, I'll figure out what to do with the rear surrounds later I guess.

I just received this system last week and spent the better part of the Labor Day weekend setting it all up along with my new projector and screen. I paired the speakers with the Sanus speaker mount system to hang the front, rear and center channels. Another reviewer has already detailed the differences between this model and the next cheaper model below so I won't go into that. I would say I think it is work the extra $100 or so to get this one over the S5300 and am glad I went that route for the extra features.

It did not take long to unpack and set up into my entertainment center. I had already pre-wired my home theater room with 14/2 speaker wire to where all the speakers would go so set up went quickly. The auto setup for the speakers was a snap and the system sounds great. I have a satellite receiver (very old model with old connections only available) connected via composite cables and a PS3 for BD DVD/gaming via HDMI. The output is connected to an Optoma HD20 projector via the HDMI out. Once I read the instructions more clearly on how to configure the one input for the composite cables I quickly cleared a problem I had with audio but no video output when using the satellite receiver for TV. The picture looks great with the upconvert and now I wonder if I want to upgrade to HD TV receiver in the near future to maximize the potential of the system. With the BD DVD the picture is also fantastic and the sound is perfect, making for a great home theater experience. I do not as of yet own any Blue Ray DVDs, but have tried a few regular DVDs which look great. The iPOD doc is a handy bonus which also works and sounds great.

I had pre-wired the room some time back and only wired it for 5.1 so I am currently not using 2 of the speakers.

I purchased this system about 1 month ago, and i must say that i dont think that i could be happier with it!! I went from a 5.1 ch Yamaha system to this Onkyo 7.1 ch system, and whoa what a difference!! I did a TON of research on this system and i was looking for one that had a good amount of settings, and very good bass out of the powered woofer. I must say that the sub-woofer is a little on the large side, but i promise that its worth every bit of it. Another feature that i liked is that you can hook up 2 front high zone speakers, so in all reality you will have a 9.1 ch system!! the fact that this system comes with a microphone that comes into play once you get all of your speakers hung and everything set. you hook the Mic into the front jack titled "setup", and the receiver automatically goes into setup mode. It then walks you through and adjusts your speaker levels and such according to the height and distance of the speakers relative to the placement of the microphone, which is set to ear level. This feature was a HUGE seller for me!! The Speaker quality is most certainly higher than what you would expect from a system of this cost. I was just watching the newest transformers installment and WOW, my windows were shaking, and i actually felt the bass under my butt while sitting on the couch, from the sub-woofer across my living room. The speaker wire included with it is most certainly not even close to the gauge that it should be. I ended up buying a 100' spool of 14 gauge wire instead. Id say that it would be a must due to the fact that i do not think the 18 or 20 gauge wire that came with it, would support enough current for the speakers and you wouldn't get the full potential out of the system. Why they would give you such a small gauge wire, i dont know??Read more ›
