All I can say is wow! This HTIB is amazing. Straight out of the box, without any configuration, I was amazed at the depth and clarity of the sound this thing puts out. At first I though the auto configuraion tool was broken, then I read the instructions and it did a mighty fine job. It turned the sub down more than I would like, but other than that it did a great job.
While actual details and pictures of the components of the Onkyo HT-S9400THX Networked HTiB are sketchy, the message is clear - this is a product that defies its price point. At $1099 MSRP (sure to find this on sale somewhere), you're getting a full featured receiver and THX certified speakers. While it is only really rated (and therefore designed for) a small home theater or dorm room, we're sure to see them in rooms much larger.
Excellent sound and video
The Onkyo HT-S9400THX is one of the priciest HTIB systems available, but reviewers say you get a lot of value for your money. Critics and consumers alike say the audio quality is second to none with this 7.1-channel system. This is one of the few home theater systems to carry THX I/S audio certification, which means the sound you enjoy in your living room will be the same as you would enjoy in a movie theater, as long as your room is not too large.
Decent bookshelf speakers
Taking all into consideration, the Onkyo HT-S9400THX system provides decent bookshelf speakers, practical features, and connectivity that make it definitely worth checking out if you are looking for a good home theater system package to complement an HDTV and Blu-ray Disc or DVD player.
