I agree with others who note that upgrading to heavier speaker wires is a good idea.
David Rolfe
I would highly suggest the system to anyone who doesnt want to spend the time or money on a custom configured system.

I installed the system in my "home theater" room and the sound it generates is excellent.

This was my first experience installing a pre-configured system. In the past it has always been individually picked components. I have to say for the price, this system is PERFECT. $439 frankly is too low of a price. The only thing I would change is that the bass could stand to be a little stronger, however I think it would be adequate for most people's taste. The reciever never stopped surprising me with what it offered, such as THREE Optical inputs, and 3 Video inputs. As well as the abiltiy to still hook up an existing Tape deck, and seperate CD Player.

Configuration was the simplest I have ever seen, simply tell the unit the distance each speaker is placed from where you will sit to watch the TV, then run a sound test to make sure each speaker is equally as loud, thats all. And best of all the unit IS NOT made in China or Taiwan. I would highly suggest the system to anyone who doesnt want to spend the time or money on a custom configured system. I think it will impress you, and if not you can always return it!

Ok, this is not a high end multi-thousand dollar system. It is a well priced, excellent sounding system for anyone. I installed the system in my "home theater" room and the sound it generates is excellent. When all 7 channels get to cranking in a movie or Xbox game (especially HALO2) well let's just its a complete immersive experience. The 5.1 to 7.1 converter capabilities really do a great job. The hookups are plentiful and well marked. The only negatives would be: included speaker cables are a bit short for in the wall or ceiling wiring; and no DVI or HDMI interfaces are included so you have to use component video hookups for HDTV. The included manual is a bit weak on helping you decipher how to optimize all the available settings and surround sound settings, but the ONKYO website has some help available there. The included remote will control just about any other device including TV, DVD, etc. If you are installing in a cabinet with fron glass door, you may want to measure the depth; but this is also true of most a/v receivers I looked at before I bought this one. I've had this installed for over a month now and I am absolutely happy with this purchase!

OK, if you are looking at this review you are probably the owner of a room that you are calling your "theater room" or the like and you are looking for a good system for around $500 or less. Well, I have good news, you just found one.

Before I go into more details about the highs and lows of my experience with this Onkyo system, let me address who this system is not indented for (and who will not be happy with this system). If the room that you are installing this system into is really large, let's say bigger than 30ft. x 30ft., then you might consider something with more power and bigger speakers. If you are a highly critical audiophile who has much, much more than $500 in aftermarket sound equipment in your car, you might consider something a bit more inline with your taste.

On the other hand, if you simply want the best sound and quality for the money and you only have $500 burning a hole in your pocket, this is the system for you. Here are my findings after purchasing this Onkyo system for my home theater:

1. As you will read elsewhere, the speaker cables are sub-par. I found a great deal on woot.com for a 5.1 home theater cabling system from Monster. $35 after shipping. Can't beat that. But you need two since this is a 7.1 system. If you are lucky you will find that deal on woot again soon. If not, definately find better cables somewhere. I mean, you can use the stuff that comes with the Onkyo system, but the sound quality difference is slightly perceivable if you have a good ear.

2. I would not say that the speakers in this system are the best... in fact, they are far from it. Are they adequate? Absolutely.

Outstanding system for a modest budget. I purchased this system for 400 and tax from Circuit City. The handling of dvd surround is superb and it brings movies to life; as is stereo music from CD. The radio receiver is also outstanding. I'm listening to my CD collection with new ears. It's my first home theater purchase and this is a terrific system for under $500.

It has plenty of inputs for component connectivity: 4 digital audio, 3 video (each with component, s-video and composite), analog 5.1 surround inputs, analog inputs for cd and tape. The remote has a large number of functions and controls my existing tv/dvd player/vcr after entering the appropriate remote codes (listed in the Onkyo manual). It takes a little while to get used to but it's very functional.

I have yet to try out all the DSP modes but PLIIx Movie for Dolby encoded DVDs sounds great. CDs sound just fine in Stereo or All Channel Stereo. The subwoofer is rated from 30Hz to 150Hz and certainly seems to be doing its job right. The center and front speakers sound great right through the spectrum. The front and center speakers are on the big side (compared to other comparable systems) but the sound is big too - I guess the wooden speaker cabinets help.

The included speaker wire may be a bit short to run the wires along the sides and up the walls. In addition to what's in the box, you'll need to buy cable to hook up your dvd player with surround at a minimum (buy coax digital, you can get good cable for under 10 dollars).

One thing to note is that it will not switch video formats - e.g., if the input is component video it will output component video and if you switch to another input in s-video then the output will also be s-video.
