    Great product but wiring issue right out of the box I love Onkyo products (this is my second home theater in a box I have owned from Onkyo) but they have a quality control issue that they don’t appear to be addressing properly. The subwoofer on this system started cutting out and then ultimately stopped working about 20 minutes after setup. I thought it was a settings issue or power issue at first but I tested the RCA cable that supplies the signal from the receiver to the subwoofer with a multimeter and discovered it had little to no continuity. That is, the cable had a break in the wiring internally even though I did nothing but unfurl the wire and connect it. A new RCA cable fixed the issue.Out of curiosity, I conducted an online search and there are scores of people who are having subwoofer issues with similar Onkyo systems. Most of these consumers are under the assumption that their subwoofer is to blame, when in reality, it’s probably just the wiring. I submitted a polite email to the company about a month ago…

    Best in a box Best home theater in a box system I’ve had. Sound quality is crisp, even at high levels and I’m still using the included speaker wire, so there is a lot of room for improvement.

    Sounds awesome and really looks great My one complaint is that the manual is on a CD. Also, we have a long theater in our basement and it has taken a while to make all the adjustments to hear things properly. So I guess my advice is to READ the manual and then do the full up sound setup using that microphone thingy they include with the package.
