Onkyo HT-S3500 Review

onkyo

I bought the Onkyo HT-S3500 home theater system recently and I am glad that I chose this. My choices also included products from popular brands such as Sony, Panasonic and Samsung. I decided to ignore those brands because they are often highly priced because of the name they carry.

After using the system for nearly 3 months, I am deeply pleased by its performance. First off all it is an excellent home theater system for the price it comes with. The system has proven that you do not need to spend hundreds and hundreds of dollars on just brand names. Everything from the build quality to the sound quality is excellent and on par with high end models of other brands.

There are only few issues with the home theater system overall. The only issue I found that the remote was a bit stiff to use and the receiver often gets a little too hot. Even when the system has a great ventilation system, it still gets overly heated up in a matter of minutes. Now I am not sure if it is a default with this particular unit or the entire model line suffers.

I would definitely recommend this system over others because of its great value for money. However I am still under the doubt that this unit may have problems with cooling.

If you are looking for a home theater that has a great build quality and excellent salient features with optimal sound quality, the Onkyo HT-S3500 is one of the best things you will ever own under the given low price.

Just make sure to connect the wires properly as I first figured out that wires connected improperly reduced the sound feedback from the system.

Pros
Excellent build quality Very inexpensive for a great product Tons of inputs and outputs Excellent informative onscreen display
Cons
Can get a little hot Customer support is bad as you would expect from a company that is less known Help/support is also not available in paper form.

  • “A flawed home theatre system”

    Pros
    Cheap
    Cons
    No equalizer. Cheap quality. Receiver gets very hot.
    Summary

    A few months back, I decided to get a home theatre system to set it up in my new house. I didn’t want to go with something too expensive so I decided to buy the Onkyo HT 5.1 home theatre. However now I think I should’ve spent some extra money to get something good. This home theatre is seriously flawed. It is cheap quality and nothing like the other home theatres my friends have in their houses. The sound quality of the speakers is pretty average but there is no equalizer so you cannot adjust the sound according to how you want.
    The home theatre’s receiver also gets very hot and you have to make sure you place it in a cool area and have AC on when it’s hot. Even with the air conditioning on, it gets very hot which is just too annoying. I tend to switch it off when it gets very hot in order to cool it off. The only thing good about this home theatre is that it is cheap but I don’t think there is any point in buying a product if it fails to satisfy you.

  • “Great home theatre available at a great price”

    Pros
    Very reasonable. Good speakers. Sound quality is very nice. Easy to setup.
    Cons
    Doesn’t come with good quality wires
    Summary

    I recently purchased Onkyo HT and have been very happy with it so far. The home theatre is available at a very affordable price unlike other home theatres that are just way too costly. Moreover, setting it up is also very easy too. All you have to do is hook all of it up which is quite easy. Not only is setting it up easy but even the on screen setup is very convenient to use.
    One thing I like most about this home theatre is that there is a very convenient USB port that is placed perfectly; you can easily hook your iPod or mp3 player and listen to songs endlessly. You can even control the music using an mp3 controller which is also enhances ease. The sound quality of the speakers is also quite nice. I am used to listening to songs of different genres and all of them sounded great; the bass level and everything else is perfect. The only concern I have with this home theatre is that its wiring isn’t as great as other home theatres have; I think the wires will probably wear out soon and I will have to replace them. However, all and all, this home theatre is great. It offers value for money.
