To me it looks pretty good for $600 dollars but then again, I don't know much of whats out there for $600. Is this a decent home theater system for the money or is there something "better" for my friend? It's going into a small bedroom. I don't know the exact dimensions, but it's definitely small. If I had to guess, it seems like its maybe 8/9' by 11'
This might be overkill for a small bedroom but if I wanted an HTiB and was going to spend $600 this is what I would buy. I have experience with these systems and for $600 its an amazing system... Onkyo HT-S9400THX
Thanks for the recommendation! I showed my friend and he likes what he sees lol. He wants to go audition some stuff and then he'll make his decision. At least he's not into Bose. I taught him well lol
Sounds good. Auditioning is the best way to see what you like. Just remember it will sound different in home than in store.
Yeah bose isn't very good for HT at all. I don't like bose home speakers one bit. But I do have to admit that my GMC Yukon XL with a 9 speaker bose system sounds a million times better than my Saturn Ion with regular speakers.
To be honest, I was very impressed with it. I've hear Onkyo HTIB systems before and was never too fond of them, mostly because of the speakers/subwoofer. To my ears, they made great improvements. The sub sounded great for what it is, barely any port noise from what I can tell, and the extended lower then I thought. At PCRichard, my friend got a deal on this for $400 bucks. He's gonna pick it up friday. I think for the money, it's a pretty nice home theater system. Sounds very impressive to my ears, especially for $400 bucks
