One Easy Step to Sensational Surround-Sound
Be among the first in the world to experience the power of Dolby Atmos sound with the HT-S7700- the HTiB package with everything you need for next-generation home entertainment. Paired with Onkyo's high-current discrete amplification system is a Dolby Atmos-enabled speaker package designed to add multidimensional sound to the latest 4K/60 Hz games and movies.
A Totally Immersive Audio Experience
This solid and compact speaker system includes a subwoofer driving 120 Watts through a big 10-inch cone, and gives you a totally immersive audio experience. You can stream high-resolution music via built-in Wi-Fi and remote app, and you can access the largest selection of internet streaming services around. Bluetooth is also built-in, with sound quality boosted by a Music Optimizer DSP mode. There's even a phono input to connect your turntable, and USB port for lossless audio. Graphical menus are overlaid via HDMI 2.0 and there's a choice of preprogrammed or smartphone remote control, making this package a snap to set up and use.
Feel Every Dimension in Dolby Atmos
The HT-S7700's receiver features Dual 32-bit DSP engines to decode and deliver the Dolby Atmos format to its included home theater speaker package. Dolby Atmos uses special mixing techniques to layer independent “sound objects” on top of a standard multi-channel set-up. Dolby Atmos soundtracks fill up a 3D space, moving the sound around the room through height and surround channels, putting sound into motion above and all around you. The result is an intensely realistic sonic experience that truly puts you in the middle of the scene.
Dolby Atmos-Enabled 5.1.2 Speaker Package
The HT-S7700 Dolby Atmos-enabled speaker system adds multidimensional audio to a standard 5.1 surround sound set-up. To reproduce these sound objects that originate from overhead -a helicopter, raindrops, the flight of an arrow, for example- the two front speakers each have an upwardly angled speaker housed in a sealed top section of the cabinet. These speakers, which are powered by the receiver's height channels, bounce individually separate and distinctly coded sound effects off the ceiling and to your ears and create an overhead sonic plane, moving the sound around and above you in multidimensional space.
Supports Next Generation HDMI 2.0 and HDCP 2.2 Copy Protection
The HT-S7700's A/V receiver has the latest HDMI 2.0 connections that support 4K/60Hz and 21:9 format, and also the latest Digital Rights Management (DRM) copy protection compatibility: HDCP 2.2. HDCP 2.2 has been adopted for future premium 4K releases by Hollywood studios, satellite broadcasters, and internet video streaming services, and the HT-S7700's A/V receiver is ready. Even if you're not planning on upgrading your current TV right away, it's good to know your Onkyo receiver is ready for the future of gaming and video entertainment.
Built-In Wi-Fi and Bluetooth
No wires, no dongles, no mess. Complete the one-time Wi-Fi setup, download our free control app for iOs and Android devices, and you've got a full range of remote control and audio streaming features in the palm of your hand. You can also pair your Bluetooth-capable device and stream directly to your home theater. With Advanced Music Optimizer DSP compensating for compression, music via Bluetooth sounds better than it ever has.
Built-in Internet Radio and Streaming
If you can think of it, you'll likely be able to stream it to the HT-S7700. The receiver comes loaded with Spotify, Pandora, SiriusXM Internet Radio, Slacker, AUPEO! and TuneIn. You can select a station and search for music available on these services via the free Onkyo app on your smartphone so you'll never be short of your favorite music.
Hi-Fi Power and Fidelity
WRAT (Wide Range Amplifier Technology) is all about current. Receivers need a lot of current not only to handle sudden explosive actions scenes but also to reproduce the detail of quiet passages. We use a massive high-power transformer to drive discrete amps that help eliminate distortion and preserve the energy of music and movies. Delivering 115 watts per channel, the HT-S7700's A/V receiver packs a colossal punch for movies but still retains the pure musicality you need for two-channel playback. Also, Phase-Matching Bass Enhancement optimizes low frequencies while preserving mid-range clarity. It counters phase shifting by synchronizing the timing of different frequencies. The result is deep, well-defined bass that won't blur vocals or strings.
Exclusive AccuEQ Room Calibration
AccuEQ easily calibrates your system to suit your home theater space. Just connect your speakers, plug-in the included mic and the system automatically measures aspects such as speaker distance, type, crossover, and output, while taking into account any sonic reflections from your walls and floor. The system by-passes your front left and right speakers to preserve the purity of those channels and optimizes the frequency response of the remaining speakers for amazingly balanced surround sound regardless of room shape or furnishings.

That said, I wanted something powerful but not too expensive. I didn't want to spend thousands on a home theater audio system. After much research, I decided on this Onkyo HT-S7700. I bought the 'refurbished' model. To my surprise it arrived almost as if I bought it 'new retail', the only thing was I didn't get a pretty box, I got a brown box that had huge "REFURBISHED" lettering on it. Do I care? Not one bit! The contents are what counts and the contents were BRAND SPANKING NEW! No issues what-so-ever. Oh yea, the rumors are true, this package comes in a HUGE box! About the size of an apartment sized refrigerator!
I planned ahead and with my purchase I bought 100ft of 16 gauge Amazon speaker wire. I immediately tossed the included Onkyo speaker wires (they are so thin!) and started cutting and stripping the Amazon wire [sidenote: this must be the hardest wire to strip -EVER-, but that is for another review ha].
I got it all set up, and started the automated setup process. I used the included microphone. I have a relatively small living room, 15ftx12ft, but the microphone seemed to accurately judge 'how far' the speakers were from the microphone. After this, it prompted me to complete a Firmware update which I did, this took about 15mins on a wired Ethernet connection.
Now, the box was fully connected and ready to start!
Started watching some of my TiVo backlog of recordings and noticed an immediate improvement in the listening experience of my shows. I did end up fiddling with some settings, I found that +2dB Treble and +2dB Bass was the 'optimum' EQ for my ears/room. I have the powered Subwoofer at just under the halfway mark (there is an old school analog rotary knob on the back of it).
I also changed some of the speaker levels, I like the 'dialog' prominent while watching TV, so I bumped the 'Center' channel to +3dB. and I also boosted the Left and Right channels to +2dB. Again, nothing scientific about it, just what sounded good to my ears and in my living room.
Moving on, I thought I was going mad, but when I watched Blurays or other HD content thru various media player boxes (Popcorn Hour, Zidoo, WDTV Live), it seemed the audio sync was off. This didn't happen with my TiVo input, I swapped HDMI cables - thinking that could result in audio delay - but nope, not the cables. I started going thru the menus, I found a setting that turned Automatic HDMI Audio Sync On or Off, it was set to On. so I turned it Off. Still didn't fix it completely, but now a new option appeared in the Quick Menu, and the ability to adjust Audio Sync via +/- ms option appeared. I could manually control the audio sync now. While watching a 3D Bluray it seemed I needed +280ms audio sync for it to be in sync and a regular Bluray +150ms audio sync. Well this seems annoying, why should I have to change the audio sync timing depending on what Bluray I am watching??? I also noticed that while it seemed 'in sync' at some points, it would slowly drift out of sync every few mins, only to come back into sync. It wasn't too noticeable, but I am a stickler for audio sync issues, I can detect even a few milliseconds out of sync. It bothers me!
After digging in the menus I found an option called "Picture Mode", it was set to "Custom". This Picture Mode does some "processing" on the image (not sure what), but as soon as I changed it to "Bypass" (no processing), I immediately noticed my sound sync issues I was having were GONE! I reset the Audio Sync to 0ms (no correction) and voila!!! 3D and regular 2D Blurays are back in action, playing perfectly in sync! Every cymbal crash and drum hit are perfectly in sync with the image.
Besides the little couple day fumble with audio sync issues, which could've resulted in a negative review, I finally found the culprit! The Onkyo Picture Mode processing feature seems to slowly drift in and out of audio sync when active. Onkyo: stick to the sound! We don't need any picture processing here! :P
Overall, this unit and speaker system puts out amazing room rumbling window shattering punchy sound. And for the savings on the Refurbished unit this is an awesome deal! Just don't forget to set the Picture Mode to BYPASS!
Second Post: I'm updating my review now that we've had a couple of months of usage. When the sources are our satellite HDTV, 1080p game system or Chromecast the sound and picture pass through is excellent. However, we have watched a half dozen movies, including a couple in 4k, and we haven't been able to watch a single one without some kind of video problem. These include the audio & video doing an un-commanded pause and video freezing while the audio continues. I've set our new Samsung UBD-K8500 4K UHD Blu-ray Player to factory specs, only changing to Bitstream as necessary for Dolby Atmos playback, and the problems continue. Played with many other setting in the UHD BR player and many make it worse and none fix the problem. The Onkyo receiver settings are simple and none fix the problems either. The pause problems can be fixed by pressing play on the UHD BR remote, so that seems to be a player issue. The freezing problems can only be fixed by cycling the receiver on/off, which seems an AVR issue. Obviously my Samsung - Onkyo equipment isn't playing well together. Downgrading this AVR to 3/5 and if I can't find a fix in another few weeks it will go lower still.
First Post: Overall I'm giving the receiver a score of 4/5 and the speakers included a 5/5. The sytem works very well in our great room with its flat 9' ceilings. The Dolby Atmos effects are evident and the whole surround experience is very good. Obviously if you're a high end audiophile, one "good" Dolby Atmos enabled speaker would cost as much as this entire system and maybe you'd find fault with this setup, but the rest of us normal folks will find this a great system. I'd label this system's sound as cool rather than warm, with clear sharp highs and impressive lows. Dialog is easy to follow.
The overall sound for the price is excellent. It has plenty of HDMI 1080p inputs. The receiver included is a model c which can be configured as either a 7.2 or 5.2.2 system via the Setup Menu. The speakers included allow a 5.1.2 (Dolby Atmos type) setup. All speakers are wired to the receiver. The center, two front and surround speakers each have a metal keyhole type bracket screwed to the back panel which you can use to hang the speakers on a nail or screw in a wall. Speaker wires ( 20 gauge) are included and the wires for the surround are 25-30 feet long. Wires, speakers and receiver terminals are all color coded to aid in the setup. The front Dolby Atmos enabled speakers will each have two pairs of wires running to them, one to run the speakers in the unit's front and one to run the top firing speakers for the Atmos effect. The external finish of the speakers is a nice wood-grain look. Since I had a spare Velodyne 375W sub-woofer lying around I'm using it along with the provided sub-woofer for a 5.2.2 setup.
I used banana plugs, of the closed screw type, to connect the speaker wires to the rear of the receiver. You'll need seven pairs. You need to clip off the tinned ends of the provided speaker wires to connect these wires to a closed screw type banana plug. I also bought longer, heaver 16 gauge wire to run to my surround speakers. I installed the surround speakers to the ceiling using VideoSecu Universal Satellite Speaker Mounts which I attached with screws to the rear of the surround speakers. The mounts came with all the mounting hardware needed, including anchors that worked fine with my drywall ceiling.
A microphone is included and a simple balancing routine in the setup program uses it to fine tune the speaker system.
I like that you can rename the receiver's inputs to match what you have connected, even in this budget receiver. For example, instead of the receiver's display reading CBL/SAT and STB/DVR I changed them to DIRECTV and 4K BLURAY.
Because this system was under $800 I was able to add an Amazon three year protection plan and still have a reasonable total price.
Onkyo states that this receiver is 4K compliant, including HDCP 2.2. When using my Samsung UBD-K8500 4K UHD Blu-ray Player, I found that the receiver would pass a true 4K signal to my Sharp AQUOS 80" 4K Ultra HDTV only when the player was plugged into the receiver's 3rd HDMI port. None of the other HDMI ports support UHD, HDCP 2.2. Because there is only UHD Blu-ray right now for a 4K, 2160p source, one such HDMI is enough, today. May need to upgrade in a few years when 4K game systems come out, but right now this affordable system does what I need.
With the Blu-ray player set to Bitstream out (necessary for Dolby Atmos playback) the receiver cuts off the video and audio coming from the Blu-ray player for 4-5 seconds while the receiver's processor figures out what audio and video it needs to set itself too. The TV's "No Signal" prompt and that lack of sound is a bit off putting, but after a few seconds it starts working again. This Onkyo's processor is a bit slow. This happens whenever the data stream changes video resolution or sound types, like between previews, menus and the main movie in a Blu-ray. This also happens when switching sources, but once switched the satellite and game system plays continuously as their data streams rarely change..
I'm tempted to turn off the receiver's video processing of incoming signals to see if it helps the above signal delay, but the advanced manual (available online from Onkyo) says that with the video processing turned off, then the receiver's setup program will not be visible on the TV. Inferring that you'd have to use the receiver's one-line display to complete that, and any future, setups. I'd rather have the menu on the TV so we haven't tried turning the video processing off.
The Dolby Atmos enabled front speakers did not come with feet. I had to supply my own non-skid feet. Not a biggie, but it needed saying. The center speaker came with feet.
Again, we are very happy with this system. We've had 7.1 systems in the past, using Pioneer Elite and Yamaha AVRs, with Bose, Energy or Velodyne speakers and even a Yamaha YSP-4400 integrated sound bar/AVR. This Onkyo HT-S7700 package with Dolby Atmos ranks right among the others. For under $800 you can't get a better system.
It looks like the sub was either inspected or swapped as the packing material for the subwoofer had been opened even though the box seal was good. I guess this is good, as a number of reviewers have complained about failing sub-woofers.
Dolby Atmos. For the $$, you probably can't do better for a fully integrated solution. It is Dolby 5.1.2, not 5.1.4 or 7.1.2, etc, so if you are looking for a more enveloping experience, you may want to look elsewhere. It can also work as a Dolby 7.1 system, but you'd need rear height speakers to pull that off effectively.
HDCP 2.2. It's future-proof for 4K when that time comes.
Plentiful number of HDMI inputs.
Decent on screen display for configuration and setup.
The remote. It's pretty clunky and not as intuitive as it could be.
AccuEQ. It didn't do a great job of calibrating, so I had to make some changes.
The included speaker wire. While it is great because it is color coded, it is 20 gauge, hence pretty thin.
If you are looking for a decent starter Atmos system, this is probably it. I had a need as my wife did not want overwhelming speakers in our media room, which doubles as a loft.
