Onkyo HT-S9100THX 7.1 Channel Receiver and Speaker Package
The HT-S9100THX home theater system is the first THX I/S certified package that will handle full high-definition processing of 1080p video and the master quality of Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD. No matter if you have a home theater room or a bedroom, this system will surely bring any movie or game system to life.
One of the best attributes about the HT-S9100THX system is the video upscalling. What is upscaling? Upscaling is a feature that will convert any regular composite video input and upgrade the signal to HDMI. Say that you wanted to hook up your camcorder to be viewed on your television. Plug in the composite cables to the front of the Onkyo receiver, set the receiver to the correct input and watch your videos on the television that is already set to HDMI. Basically upscaling allows you to watch anything and not worry about installing any additional cables.
Out of all home theaters in a box, this sure stands out with technology, power, and performance. The receiver is easy to program through the setup. The remote is very easy to program and operate. The speaker setup is easy to setup with the optimization mic that comes with the system. Overall, the system is everything a person will want. Check into it and you will be impressed.
This flat screen installation over a fireplace was a nice one with out any problems. The first thing I did was to figure out how the run the HDMI cable, electrical wire, and a speaker wire for the center speakers. Its always a good idea to pre wire for anything in the future. For this customer, he was pre-wiring for a home theater speaker system to be installed in the next few weeks. I figued out how I was going to run the wire and with a few measurements I was ready to make my holes under the floor. In about 15 minutes I came back out from the crawl space and then got the flat panel sony television prepped to be mounted. When I got the mount on the wall, that’s when I cut my hole to retrieve the wire that was inside the chimney.
When I got all the wire coming out of the wall I went ahead and got it all finished with plates and outlet. The last thing we had to do was to hang the flat panel television. This is when the customers get excited. They just loved seeing their television with no wires at all to be seen.
I can’t wait until the customer get their home theater installed. This is where everything comes alive. With watching a DVD or watching a football game, you’ll always feel like your in the middle of the action.
This installation was really nice. The customer and I worked hard to find the best prices out there, and let me tell you. We found some great deals. The home theater speakers were ordered from amazon. The projector is a Optima brand that was order through a private individual. The mount, Wii, and screen were all purchased via web. The yamaha home theater reciever and Blue ray dvd player were purchased at HHgregg. I went ahead and installed each component as the product was being delivered one peace at a time. When the installation was completed, the customer was very pleased and couldn’t wait to watch some football. Everything went very smoothly without a problem.
