From the Manufacturer
Step up to 7.1-channel home entertainment with the Onkyo stamp of quality. The HT-S5400 gives you the flexibility to harness the two extra front-height channels of Dolby Pro Logic IIz. Now movies, games, and music come alive with atmosphere and realism. When it comes to set-up, Audyssey 2EQ ensures the surround sound stage is adjusted to the proportions of your living room. And thanks to the system's HDMI functionality, you can take advantage of Onkyo's convenient overlaid on-screen display to adjust settings with a minimum of fuss. Naturally, the receiver's four HDMI inputs also handle 3D video and high-definition audio from Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio. Other connectivity highlights include a handy front-panel USB input that lets you send a clean digital signal from your iPod/iPhone to the receiver, and front-panel analog A/V inputs for easy connection of a game console or camcorder. To provide greater bass impact without taxing the receiver, the package includes an independently powered subwoofer.
All-in-One Entertainment Package
The Onkyo HTS5400 is an all-in-one entertainment package that includes a powerful 680-Watt AV receiver, seven speakers, and a powered subwoofer. Versatile connections, including HDMI, component, composite, and digital audio, provide connectivity for a wide range of home theater sources. The HDMI 1.4 connections let you route 3D signals through the receiver and enjoy the benefit of an Audio Return Channel, so your single HDMI cable carries both video and audio signals, eliminating extra cables.
The HT-S5400 provides a handy place to connect your iPod or iPhone via a USB port on the front panel. Dolby TrueHD and DTS HD-Master Audio processing ensures you'll hear the most uncompressed audio from your Blu-ray discs or other HD material. The addition of Dolby ProLogic IIz lets you add extra front-height channels, should you need an extra kick in your surround sound. All of it is put together with the customary solid circuitry and construction you expect from Onkyo.
Full, Satisfying Surround Sound
The HT-S5400 package features three different unique types of speakers, plus the subwoofer. The center channel is a two-way, bass-reflex speaker uses two 3.25"-cone woofers and a 1" balanced-dome tweeter to bring you up to 130 Watts of high-definition sound from 65Hz to 50KHz. To handle the front-channel audio, two powerful satellite speakers are included. Each is set up as a two-way bass-reflex speaker, and each wood cabinet contains a 5" cone woofer matched to a 1" balanced-dome tweeter, with a peak power of 130 Watts. The two pairs of surround speakers are full-range, acoustic-suspension dynamos comprised of a 3.25" cone. The bass-reflex subwoofer uses a robust 10" cone to pump out room-filling, satisfying bass. Every speaker in the package is housed in a wood cabinet for superior acoustics.

Top Customer Reviews
I wasn't able to do a standard 7.1 setup because of lack of room, so for awhile I had the system in a 5.1 configuration, that was before I figured out I could set the system up for Dolby Pro Logic IIz. What this does is it allows you to take the rear surrounds and mount them above the front speakers as front-highs. By setting the PLIIz configuration (which you can actually do through Audyssey) you add a sense of height to audio which allows for a more airy sort of sound as well as moving certain audio channels above your head, so if you're watching a film with helicopters or rain or whatever, you actually hear that above your head as you naturally would rather than in front or behind you at ear level. Its really cool, and I've watched a couple of films where its really shined.
As others have mentioned, setup is super easy. Colored wires allow you to figure out what goes where, and mounting was a piece of cake. Finding cheap speaker stands for my surrounds was a bit complicated, but I ended up going with some 15 dollar Walmart brand and using an adhesive that comes with the speakers to sit them on the stand. It sounds precarious, but its more stable than you'd think.
All in all I've very happy. Great price. Great sound. Easy setup. I couldn't ask for much more I don't think.
Let me begin by saying that this Onkyo Home Theater system is the first surround sound system that I have ever owned. I am not what one would call an "audiophile". So if you're looking for a more in-depth, technical review, I can't help you.
I was surprised when the gigantic HT-S5400 package arrived at my house. The speakers, sub-woofer, and receiver were all a lot bigger than I thought they would be. After being briefly overwhelmed, I got to work setting up the system and finished faster than expected.
Although I am a beginner, I found this system really easy to set up. The wires are all color-coded and installing the surround speakers is simple. There is no need for mounts or brackets and you can let the speakers hang on a nail or screw. This gives it a clean look. There are 4 HDMI slots are enough for your Blu-ray players, cable boxes, game consoles, and any other media players. I didn't know how to set up the sound levels for each individual speaker but the Audyssey function did this for me. I just had to do some minor tweaking afterwards.
I've tested the system for two weeks now and it sounds great with DVDs, Blu-rays, music, and videogames. I watched Inception and How to Train Your Dragon on blu-ray and the sound completely blew me away. Even the slightest movie noise comes through crisp and clear. And at less that half the max volume, my floor was already rumbling. I also tried it on an old favorite, Firefly, and it felt like a whole new experience. I don't think there is a reason to spend more money on a more expensive system unless you really can hear the difference. I initially had a problem with the audio and video popping in and out but I fixed this by replacing my HDMI cable.
One thing that I did not like about the front and surround speakers is the keystone hole. If you want to angle your surround speakers, you have attach them to a mount. This might be difficult because the depth of the keystone holes is very small so it is hard to get a screw head in there. This problem also arises when you try to attach the front speakers to a stand. This is a minor issue and can be easily remedied.
So to summarize:
Plenty of HDMI imputs as well as component and AV
Audyssey really helps beginners
Questionable keystone design
Speakers may be a bit large (Front speakers are more than a foot tall)
Can't connect to HD antennas
Like the other reviewer, I would rate this 4.5 stars if I could. There are minor problems, but overall, I would recommend this to anyone looking to buy a Home Theater in a Box.
