Onkyo perfectly balances the cost and performance with their HT-S6300 7.1-channel home theater system. This feature-packed system boasts the latest HDMI v1.4 connection enabling Full HD 3D video compatibility and Audio Return Channel. Faroudja DCDi Cinema technology enables 1080p upscaling via HDMI of all video sources.

Enjoy a whole new dimension of high-end audio with unmatched clarity thanks to Dolby TrueHD, dts-HD Master Audio decoding and Dolby ProLogic IIz height channel processing. Best of all, getting the best sound out of your system is easy with the Audyssey 2EQ & Dynamic EQ for room correction, speaker calibration and loudness correction. Four proprietary DSP modes match your gaming content. Other convenient features include a new overlaid graphical on-screen display, RIHD (Remote Interactivity over HDMI), Onkyo’s exclusive RI, HD Radio ready, a universal dock for iPhone/iPod and more.

  • newegg HDMI v1.4 The new HDMI v1.4 enables advanced features such as maximum resolution to 4k x 2k, 3D Over HDMI, Ethernet connection between the two HDMI connected devices and Audio Return Channel (ARC). ARC allows receiving audio signals from the TV, on top of the preexisting HDMI function of sending audio/video signals to the TV with just one cable. This new feature will simplify the connection by eliminating an audio cable connection between TV audio output and the main unit's audio input.
  • newegg HDMI 1080p Upscaling Powered by Faroujda DCDi Cinema Faroudja DCDi Cinema video processor up-converts video content up to 1080p resolution, and meanwhile effectively eliminates video artifacts and reduces video noise for high-quality high definition output to HDTVs via HDMI.
  • newegg Dolby TrueHD/PLIIz and dts-HD Master Audio With the integrated Dolby TrueHD and dts-HD Master Audio decoders, enjoy lossless and immersive surround sound like it was meant to be. Dolby Pro Logic IIz brings the added dimension of height to create an immersive 7.1- or 9.1-channel surround sound experience from any stereo, 5.1, 6.1, or 7.1 movie, music, TV, or game audio source. Additionally, Dolby Pro Logic IIz is uniquely capable of decoding specially encoded height channel information and also supports the traditional 7.1-channel configurations of Dolby Pro Logic IIx.
  • newegg Wide Range Amplifier Technology WRAT-equipped amplifiers handle sonic demands of high-resolution formats and provide an improved dynamic S/N ratio and better delivery of momentary power peaks from all other formats such as high-definition and regular DVDs, HD broadcasts and digital files, resulting in unmatchable movie-theater impact and sound purity.
  • newegg Powered Zone 2 Powered Zone 2 brings multi-zone audio entertainment to your home through dedicated line outs, pre-outs and speaker connections, allowing you to enjoy an independent stereo audio source in a remote room without an external amplifier.
  • newegg Audyssey 2EQ Dynamic EQ To counter distortion in dedicated home theaters, Audyssey's MultEQ XT, MultEQ, or 2EQ focuses on the frequency response and time domain (where most of the problems lie) across the entire listening area for a clear, well-balanced and natural sound. New Audyssey Dynamic EQ selects the best frequency response and surround levels moment-by-moment for the best listening experience at any volume while Dynamic Volume maintains the desired listening level for all content while optimizing the dynamic range.

3 out of 5 eggsNeeds Active Cooling

Pros: It's got a lot of bang for the buck.

Cons: Needs a ton of space around it and nothing else hot near it or it will overheat. I did not have mine adequately setup with space on the sides and it progressively lost HDMI capability after a couple years. It was past the warranty period; the repair guys said that repair will cost more than buying a new one.

Other Thoughts: The capacitors on the HDMI daughterboard fail if unit overheats due to inadequate ventilation, which mine did. THIS CAN BE FIXED by replacing some capacitors and adding PC fans. So it would get 4 or 5 starts if it worked on it's own, but since it needs active cooling I'm docking it a star or two.

1 out of 5 eggsOnkyo service is not good

Pros: Cheap

Cons: HDMI blew out in less then a year. I've had it in service for over a month now, and still don't have an eta on when I will receive it back. I understand parts break, but the service is lacking.

1 out of 5 eggsUnreliable

Pros: sounded great but slowly started acting up before it crapped out.

Cons: not trust worthy, always a hit or miss whenever you pressed the power button. the system stopped working in about a week. i sent it in had it serviced and it ended up working 2 mins before dying once again. STay away from this brand.

Other Thoughts: I recieved my system. it worked for a couple movies before dying. i sent it in using onkyo's instructions it costed $45 and they took 6 weeks to return my system. i set it back up and it worked for 10 seconds before it died. I sent onkyo an email which took forever to return one back and they wanted me to resend it in for service. I wasted another $45 due to their faciality being closed. i now have a $750 dead system. spent $90 on shipping and all the time and effort to get answers. Where to go from here.... i dont know....

1 out of 5 eggsHDMI Stopped Working After 5 Months

Pros: Great sound, great bass, great connectivity options.

Cons: HDMI input switcher breaks over time, unit gives off way too much heat.

Other Thoughts: After searching I see the HDMI switcher problem has been around for a long time on Onkyo receivers and yet the company has done nothing to repair the problem. This is obviously a company that I will have to avoid in the future. I have not started the repair process and I am dreading it from everything I've heard.

4 out of 5 eggsGood entry level system

Pros: Good HTIB. My first foray into home theater for my new house. Was definitely a learning experience shopping/purchasing. I went with this system because of the reviews and I was starting from scratch. Sub and receiver are great and super easy to set up.

Cons: Knowing what I do now, I wouldn't go with an HTIB. That being said, the receiver and sub in the HT-6300 alone are worth the $475 I paid for it on New Egg. Down-firing sub thumps and I have it installed in the base of my custom media niche. The speakers are only ok. Feel sort of chinsy and light. Supplied cabling is junk, go online and get yourself a few spools of 12 or 14 gauge speaker wire. I wired my entire house for a clean look for under $50 with banana plugs (a must IMO).

Other Thoughts: I have my last two surround speakers (7.1) set up as a zone 2 and honestly don't use them much. I find that the sound channels they play are odd sounding unless you're watching a movie optimized for 7.1. Also, I don't have the ideal room setup for 7.1. In hind site I would go with an Onkyo reveiver (608) and a home grown 5.1 setup with Polk speakers. Although the sound quality is good for this price point, the stock speakers in the HTIB won't fill a bigger room. A front mounted HDMI In/Out would also be nice. I usually plug my laptop straight into the receiver or use the media server on my PS3.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat System

Pros: - Awesome Sound
- Massive, Durable Speakers (could be a con if you don't want anything taking up a lot of room)
- Auto-Calibration Sound
- iPod/iPhone Dock
- Easy Setup
- Great Price$$$

Cons: - On-screen display looks horrible
- iPod/iPhone doesn't support iPhone 4 (although this system came out months before the iPhone 4 was even available)
- Onkyo Customer Support kind of sucks

Other Thoughts: This is the only reason why I gave it 4 out of 5 - Two weeks ago the power went off in my neighborhood for half a second. When I turned everything back on, my TV screen was blue and I could not get anything connected to the HDMI inputs to display on my TV. My Wii (don't laugh at me) was connected to the receiver via component cables and that worked with the HDMI out to the TV. I took it into an authorized Onkyo service center and they ended up replacing a capacitor on the HDMI input board. Hooked it back up last night and everything works as normal.
Just goes to show you that they could use some cheap components when building these. The capacitor should not have blown for the power going out like that at all.
Other than that, I am very pleased with this system.

5 out of 5 eggsBest Sound System for the Price

Pros: This surround sound is one of the best that I have ever heard. The sub is capable of reproducing very low freq. hits and the satellite speakers have very good mids/highs and some lows depending on how you have your low pass filter setup. The iPod dock works great even with my 3rd gen iPod touch. In my bedroom which is about 20' x 25', this system produced a SPL of about 102db, before getting any kind of distortion and the volume was a 69 out of (I think) the max of 80.

Cons: There are only two cons that I can think of about this system.

It doesn't fully support the 3rd gen iPod touch. I.E. You can use the remote to browse though your songs, artists, ect. but only on the older gens. You can still pause, rewind, fast forward, ect from the remote.

The sub could be a little better. Only on VERY low bass hits does it get distortion. I'm talking like 25-30hz low. But for things like rap songs or movies and such, it's still a very good sub.

Other Thoughts: If they added support for newer iPods via something like a firmware update, that would be awesome.

It does get pretty hot. But I have mine in a very tight entertainment center, so all I did was buy a PCI slot fan and put it blowing out and have it running off 5v so you don't even hear it. I had to do the same this for my PS3/360. So it wasn't a big deal.

I would definitely recommend this to anyone I talk to.
