Welcome to a review of the Onkyo HT-S5600 7.1-Channel Home Theater System. This home theater system from Onkyo is modestly priced but equipped to give you maximum performance for the money. The set-up is quick and easy and comes with a microphone to help you calibrate your speakers to maximize their sound potential. Equipped with 4 HDMI inputs, you can easily connect your equipment; a blu-ray player, gaming console, satellite/cable box, PC/Laptop, and more. The front panel houses a USB port for iPod/iPhone, flash drive, or PC connection, allowing you to stream your music and videos to enjoy with high-end sound and picture quality.
The remote control part number is RC-863M. The remote control’s buttons are easy to read and navigate. A couple of features on the remote which are very useful are: the Quick Set-Up button which places menus over the program you’re watching to switch inputs or change a setting without interrupting your program and the home menu button, which brings up simple icons for choosing a media source and menus for system settings.
The Audyssey Technology that comes with this system helps to maintain consistent surround sound effects at different volume levels and automatically compensates for volume fluctuations such as commercial breaks. This system is bluetooth ready, once you connect the correct adapter, therefore allowing you another option to stream your music and videos. With 1030 watts of power and a 120 watt subwoofer, the HT-S5600 system can easily accommodate a large room and provide a magnificent surround sound experience for you and your family. The wattage, paired with the Audyssey Technology and music optimizer, will deliver sound with clarity, depth and bass that will bring the house down. For the moderate price tag, if you are looking for excellence in surround sound, look no further than the HT-S5600.
