Sounds good for what it is
I've always been a seperate component owner. This is my first HTIAB, I was searching for wireless rear speakers, a much better option for me than just a soundbar (this is for the living room, I do have a Vizio VHT 510 real 5.1 soundbar in the bedroom, works great).
For starters, it's not a true 7.1, it's a 5.1.
Impressively feature-packed system
The Samsung HT-E6730W is an impressively feature-packed system. The Blu-ray player section offers 2D, 3D, and both internet and network streaming. The audio portion of the system is very innovative, featuring a vacuum-tube based preamp stage, as well as providing additional inputs, iPod connectivity, an FM stereo radio, and a twist on 7.1 channel speaker configuration that emphasizes front height, rather than rear back speakers.
I started reviewing home theater in a box set, since I did not want to go through the pain of finding receivers, and separate speakers. After trying one from a different company which did not work for video as well, and had multiple issues, I had to return and get the yamaha. The sound quality is breathtaking. The device also looks great, all black with Yamaha logos.
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.
I bought this from abcWarehouse, sorry amazon! I will have to say the receiver is awesome! I like that you can individually dial in all the speakers. I highly recommend dialing in the receiver yourself instead of the mic. It puts out great highs and deep rich bass even at very low volume. The features are great I use pandora free version all the time!
Subwoofer provides excellent low-end support
The Onkyo HT-S8400 is a 7.1 home theater system. It is compatible with 3D video via its four HDMI inputs. The system provides 1030W over the 7 satellite speakers as well as the 120W subwoofer. The HT-S8400 is capable of processing a wide range of audio codecs including Dolby TrueHD, Dolby DD Plus, and DTS-HD Master Audio.
Great Product and Great Value
I looked at many other home theater systems but chose the Onkyo S5400 because it had more options to attach external video sources. The home theater systems that included a DVD player seemed to be too much of a compromise. I paired this with an LG Blu-ray player and I get the benefit of a home theater system with my chosen DVD player and the option to attach many other sources. In all this is a great system, especially for the price.
Excellent sound quality
The HT-S5400 is a 7.1-channel home theater system from Onkyo that offers a step-up from the company's HT-S3400 model. Utilizing a sleek brushed aluminum finish, this model features a total power handling of 680 watts split across seven channels and a single 10-inch powered subwoofer.
Technology in the HT-S5400 is very impressive
If you're looking for a full featured HTiB solution with the ability to upgrade as you go, Onkyo's HT-S5400 is a great way to go. $600 certainly won't break the bank, even in this economy, and the included speakers should allow you to get used to surround sound while you shop around for something else.
Convenient, good bang for the buck
Bought this mostly for three reasons:
1. So I wouldn't have any compatibility problems with my Samsung TV
2. Rear wireless speakers (although not true wireless, sure beats having wires or having to running wires across the living room)
3. Tallboy front speakers. (I have my TV mounted on the wall, so having these tall speakers helps the room look proportional.
Twin tower speakers of this home theater provide an authentic cinema experience
We don't have anything to complain about when it comes to the Samsung Smart Home Theater HT-D6730W. It truly delivers what it promises in every department. Excellent video and sound combined with internet-streaming capabilities and Samsung's guidance for set up make it an almost unbeatable system almost.
Good integration of iPod dock
Panasonic's SC-BT200 home theatre system is a good choice if you're looking to team up a new big screen television with a separate sound system. It doesn't have the aural abilities of more expensive home theatre setups, but for its size and price a reasonable amount of features are included.

Bass is very clear, distortion is difficult to detect even at higher volumes
The HT-S7300 is the top-of-the-line model in Onkyo's 2010 lineup of 7.1-channel home theater systems supporting 3D video. Like less expensive options, it offers seven 130W speakers and a 10-inch, 290W subwoofer, for 1200W total power, as well as an iPod dock.
Passively powered subwoofer
The Samsung HT- C6730W is one of three multi-channel home-theater systems announced at CES 2010 by Samsung. All three models feature a retro, no-grill speaker design; Samsung's recently designed Crystal Amplifier Pro technology for more accurate audio; and DLNA compliance for sharing content over a network.
Extraordinary feature list and stylish looks
If you want 7.1-channel home cinema on a budget but have no interest in 3D, then the HT-C6730W is well worth a punt. Although you can hear the budget limitations of its sound quality, it still delivers a competent performance that does justice to Blu-ray's HD audio formats, and when you marry that to the extraordinary feature list and stylish looks you have a genuine bargain on your hands.
