              We installed the HT-S9400THX Home Theater Receiver by Onkyo in our theater and were blown away by the quilty of the sound. We matched this up with the Panasonic PT-AR100U Full HD Projector and feel like we now have a great theater package. Very happy with this unit. Depending on the movie you will have sound coming from all directions.

              Comments about Onkyo HT-S9400THX Home Theater Receiver:

              I know, I know -- this cannot compete with a $5k+ system where each component is given careful thought. But it is not meant to, either.

              This system, out of the box, is about as good of a Home Theater system I have had the pleasure of experiencing. If you are looking for an affordable way to acquire that in-home, small-room, theater feeling -- you can't go wrong with the Onkyo S9400.

              Sound is crisp and detailed. The spectrum is broad and balanced. And, no, I'm not comparing this with those multi-thousand-dollar systems. I'm merely looking at this as an in-box home theater system, since that's what it is.

              And when looking at it that way, it's pretty darn great. Good purchase, worth every penny.

                In my office we have a former professional musician and two others who understand the pure essence of sound. Those of us who don't get the special nuances of the speakers interpretation agreed with those folks in the know. Its like bringing a little bit of heaven to our office.

                It arrived exactly on time at a price under the other online firms. The actual suggested retail price was more than $400.00 over B&H's pricing. The Onkyo HT-S9400 THX Theater Receiver & speaker system sounds as good as systems that cost $2500 more(and that's at the suggested retail pricing).

                Thank you!

                      I had bought a sony 7.1 surround receiver, and was disappointed by it performance and returned it.

                      This system is rocking, it is loud and clear. I added an additional 12" BA Sub for the Low-Lows cut-off 60Hz the house shakes. THX is Great.

                      I was a little skeptical about the hdmi video processing enhancements would actually make a difference. Im amazed it actually DOES makes a big difference. I have a Panasonic AE-8000, the picture is great to begin with and this makes it better amazing.

                      One of my friends thought his setup was good sony 7.1.

                      This makes his sound like a boom box from the 80s.

                      BUY IT NOW.

                          This all in one home theater system is a great value! It sounds great for the price!
                          We have it set up in our family room 65" and PS3.
                          After some googling and fiddling with the HDMI remote settings, the amp powers up with the PS3 which also turns on the TV!

                            The sound system is awesome. They even include a microphone that senses each of the speakers and sets the volume automatically. I'm using the system in conjunction with a Sharp 70" TV. Using one remote, I can turn on the TV, hear the TV sound through the Onkyo, adjust the volume and shut off the system. It's head and shoulders above the Sony 5.1 system I replaced. Perhaps the only negative is that the speakers are large and heavy. The rear surround speakers weigh 7 lbs. That's a lot to hang from the wall.

                              I've only set this up as a stereo system to date. It has multiple HDMI inputs and outputs. Will make whole home entertainment set-up when I get a tV.
                              The sound quality is outstanding The set up is extremely easy. This is an outstanding value for a system

                                I have this conneted to a Panasonic TC-P65VT30, Panasonic 3D Blu-Ray player and the sound is outstanding. For the price you can't beat it. The speakers were bigger and heavier then I thought. Speakers were easy to setup. I'm no home theather pro so the amount of settings this has can be a little confusing, but once its setup and watching a movie it is VERY loud and shakes the house. When the wife gives you the "look", you know its loud!

                                          We purchased the Onkyo HT-S9400 home theater system to replace an old one that didn't support HDMI. [...].Setting it up was a breeze and I can't begin to say how wonderful the unit is. I've heard a lot of systems, but none came close to this, regardless of price. The one outstanding feature is the Audesey that sets your speakers to suite the room for best THX performance. Sound is crystal clear with the THX. The price was excellent, so I have absolutely nothing but great things to say [...]. Thanks B&H...nice job.
