Onkyo great home theater right out of the box with the HT-S5100. This unit is easy to set up thanks to the Audyssey 2EQ auto room calibration feature. This automatically calibrates the output based on listening position and speaker placement. The DynamicEQ feature adjusts the settings on the fly as the volume changes so vocals and dialogue are always crisp and clear.

Onkyo's CinemaFILTER technology adjusts the tonal balance of the soundtrack to take room size into account. This way the soundtrack will sound like it is supposed to and not like it has been forced into a room two sizes too small. When coupled with the Wide Range Amplifier Technology you get a true to life sound free of amplifier noise.

The speakers are designed to work with the receiver to deliver stunning sound without being too intrusive. The 80Hz to 20kHz dynamic range of the main speakers ensures that you will hear all the highs. The sub-woofer has a range of 25Hz to 150Hz to take care of rolling thunder and explosions.

  • newegg HDMI Inputs The HDMI-compliant HT-S5100 gets the best out of high-definition video sources and lets you connect up to three 1080p sources for switching to one display.
  • newegg Accurate Surround Sound With integrated DTS and Dolby Pro Logic IIx decoders, enjoy powerful and immersive surround sound like it was meant to be.

5 out of 5 eggsComplete Satisfaction

Pros: DISCLAIMER: I am not an accomplished audiophile; I'm just a guy on a budget, who likes good sound.

Very clear, very loud high- and mid-range; very precise bass that smoothly rumbles and hums, doesn't shudder or otherwise lose its footing, except perhaps at volumes higher than I'm willing to test. Powered subwoofer has a clever shutoff logic that applies when it receives little or no signal for more than a few minutes; great for going to sleep while listening to quiet music. Audyssey automated equalizer calibration makes setting your speaker levels a snap. Elegant-but-unobtrusive design aesthetic. Many ports and options. Newegg gave me free shipping and charged no tax on an already-discounted system whose package weighed over 90 pounds. I ordered on Friday morning and picked it up at the local UPS depot on Tuesday afternoon.

Cons: Feature-richness makes the remote a bit of a challenge. It's a 7.1 system, so in order to take full advantage of the system's sound separation, you'll need a space that allows you literally to surround listeners with speakers. I don't have such a space, so my left and right surround speakers are in the wrong place. Receiver pumps 1200 watts, so it's not the most eco-friendly consumer device you could buy.

Can you see that I'm fishing for Cons? OK, OK: wires are a bit skinny for components of this (very high) quality. But if you're reading reviews, you already know that HTIBs always come with chintzy wires.

Other Thoughts: Audyssey automated equalizer calibration neuters the subwoofer. When I set my speakers with Audyssey, I had a feeling that something wasn't right--I heard super-loud and clear mid- and high-range, but suspiciously anemic bass. Increasing the subwoofer's separate power from 50% to 100% and increasing the bass in the system's Tone menu didn't do much.

After finding the manual speaker setup controls, I observed that Audyssey had set the sub to -15dB; I raised this setting and lowered the two other settings. Now I have all the bass I could want, and the option for more bass than any sane person could want. If you live in an apartment, this system can easily trigger a visit from local cops.

5 out of 5 eggsgood sound easy setup

Pros: i really enjoy this system... had no real problems with the hookup... sound quality is good

Cons: one of the wires wasnt long enough to wrap around the door frames to get to the back of the room... though to be fair i gotta pretty big room

Other Thoughts: id buy it again...

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: - Great value
- Sound quality is great for movies as well as music
- Wide support for audio formats
- Support for every conceivable input (HDMI, Component, S-Video, RCA, Optical)

Cons: - More inputs that support HD are needed (HDMI, Component, Optical) and less outdated inputs (S-Video, RCA) which mostly go unused
- HDMI is only pass-through, does not decode audio, not a problem for me right now but might be in the future

Other Thoughts: Not many movies make good use of surround sound (with a few notable exceptions) but is awesome for music and concert DVDs.

I have to say, the value is just great.

I've hooked up peripherals as follows:
- PS3 through HDMI video and optical audio.
- Computer through HDMI video and optical audio.
- Comcast cable box through component video and coaxial audio.
- Wii through component video and RCA audio.

I've used up my component and HDMI inputs, so there's more room for expansion. The S-video inputs are unused.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome

Pros: Just carrying coals to Newcastle here. The reviews are honest, this system brought the movies to life. Great bass, and surround listening modes for every source. I was considering a different system for about $150 less, I'm so glad I resisted the urge to cut corners. BTW, I had this at my door in less than 36 hours from time of order. I can only assume NewEgg has psychics working in the order department.

Cons: Heavier gauge speaker wire (and longer) would have been nice, and maybe I should have known the digital coax and optical cables wouldn't be included. I have my Samsung TV optical output connected but no access that I can find.

Other Thoughts: Beats me what purpose the HDMI pass throughs serve. I have 2 HDMI output DVD players hooked to my TV without redundant(?) cabling. Everything except the TV sound works fine without it. I'm somewhat an audiophile, and playback of CDs is far superior to my old system. Now I have to find someone to buy my old digital speakers. Maybe there's another system out there for twice the price I would like better if it was free.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome Stereo

Pros: Very loud system, solid bass, good number of inputs.

Cons: No back light on the remote, HDMI Passthrough.

Other Thoughts: For $400 the quality and features cannot be beat. If you are looking for a new stereo/HTIB, this will not disappoint you.

Also, I measured the rear speakers wire to be ~25FT if anybody wanted to know.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat System

Pros: I have personally been into Home Audio and Car Audio for most of my life. I finally started piecing together my home theatre setup and I decided to go with this. It's a very nice setup. It look's great with the gloss black on the enclosures, very simple wiring with the color matching, plenty of speaker wire to run it in a decent sized room, and a easy EQ setup if you want to use the supplied microphone. It also has a ton of hook's for many different audio and video components which is always a plus with any AV Receiver. The speakers and subwoofer's sound absolutely amazing and I'd have to say are by far the best you will get in this price range.The Ipod adapter is also a VERY nice feature probably my favorite thing about it. It work's with my Ipod Touch but I have to start up and play the song's myself since it won't change it with the remote. All I'm able to do is change the albums.

Cons: Of course with the good you always have the bad. I would have personally liked to have a little thicker wire. I know with the little amount of power being used the supplied speaker wire is good enough but just having a little bigger would have made me feel better about it. The remote is somewhat of a issue because every code I tried for my TV and DVR won't work so I'm not sure if they left the right code out of the manual or what. The biggest issue with this unit is the HDMI. It need's to be stated more clearly that is does extract the audio from the HDMI cable so you have to run a optical cable or digital coax cable. But since the PS3 and most HD Receivers/DVRs have the optical audio outputs and you can buy a adapter to use with the Xbox 360 it doesn't pose much of a problem.

Other Thoughts: Overall this is a really nice surround sound system for someone not wanting to spend a ton of money. Sure you can get better for more money but the for the price this is a amazing setup. I would highly recommend this system to someone looking for a nice beginner setup. I think this is by far the best Home Theatre In A Box hands down. Better then any of the higher dollar setup's you will find at Best Buy. The only setup's I've personally heard were all custom built setup's that cost twice as much. This would also be a nice receiver to have if you ever want to upgrade the speakers.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Sound

Pros: Sound is GREAT on this machine! I have had no problems after the initial set up. Volume goes up to 70 and I have never needed to turn it up past 45 but I usually have it on 35.

Cons: A little dificult to set up because if you are using HDMI, you have to use a seperate cable for the audio and manually set the inputs.

5 out of 5 eggshidden jewel

Pros: It's all about the sound stupid. After reading a gazillion reviews, it occured to me the reviews on this HT system most oftern included a comment about how good the system sounded. Other reviews for more expensive systems often left out comments about the sound quality. The included sound calibration technology is a MUST. It sounded 10 tens better once this setup was complete. NewEgg rocks. 100 buck less than the retail stores. No tax for me. Literally, two day delivery for free.
The remote is mint.

Cons: The design is a bit "old school" -- it ain't particularly slim or sleek. The HDMI are pass-through. So what. I knew this going into it. The LED could be a bit more sophisticated, I guess. But in the end, there realy isn't much to complain about at all.

Other Thoughts: The sub is a monster. The directions aren't too bad. If you're like most people, buy two optical cables - one for your Cable/Sat receiver and the other for your XBOX360. That solves the pass-through "limitation."
For $400, you absolutely cannot find a better value.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat All Around Package!!!

Pros: The sound is incredible, sub is huge amd powerful. I like the included mic calibration function. Color coded wire made hookup simple. Still tinkering to get the best sound. Dropped Star Wars in and watched a few scenes. My 17 year old son said it sounded brand new. You hear sounds that you never knew were there. Great job Onkyo / Newegg. Best price around and you can't beat free UPS shipping. The ipod dock works great and is even controled by the remote.

Cons: As metioned in other posts this thing generates some serious heat, not a problem since my rack is well vented. The speaker wire is thin but I plan on running better wire anyway. The speakers are large but that is well described if you actually read the specs. No other issues.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Sound

Pros: You just can't beat this kind of sound for this kind of price. Much better than a subcompact system. More in line with what you hear from systems with large speakers all around.

Cons: Has been mentioned, but it's strange to only have HDMI switching.
Did have to "mask" the odyssey mic a little during configuration to really get the sound right. Had a tendency to underpower the center channel and overpower the surrounds. You may ask why I didn't just do it manually, but this was still a very efficient way to set it up.

Other Thoughts: If you want an above average system that won't hurt your wallet too badly, this is the way to go.
I think my downstairs neighbors now hate me...
