With the Onkyo HT-S3800, the sound comes from all directions. This home cinema set consists of an AV receiver and a 5.1 speaker system. For real surround sound with movies, series, and games, place the 5 satellite speakers in front of, next to, and behind you. You can connect devices like your Blu-ray player, digital decoder, and gaming console to the receiver. This way, you'll only need 1 cable to your television. You can listen to music with the set by connecting an external speaker, or inserting a USB flash drive with songs into the receiver. The subwoofer ensures that music and movie sounds have a powerful bass.
