Most helpful reviews

Confirmed purchaser I like movies...Lots

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Gretest sound quality I have ever heard from a 2:1 system, far better than Bose and Yamaha.
Bad points:
The RIHD (Remote Interface through High Definition) feature is only compatible with RIHD enabled television sets of which there are hardly any. Not that it really affects anything as if you have never had it (you probably won't have), then you will never miss it.

Donald, Ayr Home cinema enthusiast

Score 6.0/10
Good points:
Abundant input options.
Nice looker.
Can be used as an AV receiver to drive full-size stereo speakers.
Cross-over frequency can be adjusted.
Bad points:
Sound is unexciting. Piano and voice reproduction are acceptable, but bass is leaden and treble is lifeless.
Remote control is small and cluttered.
Remote control is not 'wireless' but the usual infra-red which means the woofer cannot be hidden behind the sofa.
Only one ineffectual 'theatre mode' is available with the two supplied speakers. All the other virtual modes require additional speakers.
The down-firing woofer is unprotected so when lifting the main unit it is easy to poke a finger through the diaphragm.
On initial deployment it took me at least 20 minutes to persuade the system to emit any sound at all. Not even the test tone worked.

Maureen, Bedfordshire Music listener

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
I am very pleased with the performance of the Onkyo HTX22HD sound system. It produces pure sound from bass to treble with no distortion if the volume is turned up. When listening to an orchestra, it seems that every instrument can be heard individually and the bass is very good. I have also bought a full HD TV and Blu-ray player and the Onkyo system enhances the sound performance of both. I enjoy watching and listening to music DVDs and the Onkyo gives a great listening experience - it would probably be even better with the optional additional speaker set which can be used with this system, if you have a large room. A bit expensive, compared to many other sound systems on the market but, in my opinion, worth it. Recommended..
Bad points:
None, so far.

Manufacturer's Description

An excellent, low-profile antidote to low-calibre flatscreen TV sound quality.
Home cinema leader Onkyo has launched the world’s first true one-box, high definition (HD) surround system, designed specifically to add a new dimension to the typically ‘so-so’ sound quality typical of the latest flatscreen TVs. The innovative HTX-22HD 2.1-channel digital home cinema system is based around a “one-box” A/V amplifier with built-in subwoofer and comes with two front satellite speakers. The system has built-in Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio decoders that allow it reproduce bit-for-bit high definition surround sound, making the HTX-22HD a superb partner for the latest generation Blu-ray and DVD players, gaming consoles and digital television receivers. Onkyo is also proud to announce that the HTX-22HD is also the world’s first system to incorporate DTS Surround Sensation. Unveiled at CES 2008 this long-awaited new software algorithm delivers a virtual 5.1 surround sound experience from just two speakers. For dedicated home cinema fans, purchasing an optional, add-on package of centre-speaker and two rear surround speakers can transform the HTX-22HD into a fully-fledged 5.1 system – all the necessary speaker terminals are already located at the rear of the main unit. Excellent sound quality and ease of ease were the top priorities for Onkyo during the development of the HTX-22HD. For that reason, the system includes Audyssey 2EQ room calibration to precisely match surround sound to your home. It also includes the new Audyssey Dynamic EQ loudness correction technology – found in Onkyo’s new generation standalone AV receivers – for dynamic, detailed surround sound even at low volumes. Thanks to the inclusion of RIHD (Remote Interactive via HDMI) the user can also integrate and seamlessly operate the system with selected HDMI-equipped playback sources and TVs from other manufacturers.
