This is a review for you on my Onkyo Home Theater in a Box System. The specific model on this one is HT-S9800THX. I should mention too that I found a pretty good deal on this, and I’ll throw a link in the description below, so you guys can check that out. I hadn’t seen too many reviews on this, and I thought I’d give my two cents from my own experience. I had spent much time researching home theater speakers, and I just wanted a pure home theater in a box that sounded good too. Many people were pointing me toward this Onkyo system. I’ll tell you right off the get go I love this thing. In my opinion, for the money, you couldn’t piece together a better audio system than this.
For one, all the speakers are tuned to complement each other perfectly. It comes with an excellent receiver, which is essential because of a lot of the home theater box type systems. Moreover, I feel weird calling it a home theater in the box because it implies that it’s not a very good system like it’s a cheap one. Don’t think of it that way. Think of it as just a pre-configured system, I guess. However, anyway, the amp that it comes with is an Onkyo amp, and it’s perfect. It has the THX certification. It has Dolby Atmos and DTS, and it has Chrome Cast built right into it as well, which is cool. It supports pretty much all the latest codecs that you would worry about, and it does support 4K video as well. However, I think the most important thing is the speakers.
These things sound great. I had in the past pieced together a pretty decent home theater system. I used ADS speakers with a pretty good Yamaha amp, one of their higher end ones. It wasn’t cheap at all to do that
The included sub is good. Explosions are super loud. It’s also a nice downward ported one too, which usually at this price point you don’t get something like a downward ported sub
