Is that speaker/sub combo far and away better than the one in this deal?

I can't speak to that except that I found more better reviews for that deal...there is some talk over there of the woofer not being as bang-for-buck, but I bought both. I'll probably flip the Onkyo system (because the receiver does not support a discrete Sub) and save up for a different receiver and keep those speakers.

I may also return the subwoofer, and opt for a different version, we'll see.

Can't really compare the two. One is twice as much without the receiver, so it is more of a question of is one willing to spend that much more for the quality. Really depends on the situation.

Getting back to this set up. So i guess if i hook my comcast box to tv via components and cable box to avr by hdmi that would give me an easy way to watch the news and other tv shows without firing up the sub?? Thanks for the newb help.

No LFE for sub on this receiver, which is very odd.Frown It has speaker wire connections for the passive sub that is included.
But can you just connect the passive sub wire to a powered speaker's poles and call it good?

Can someone explain to me what a passive subwoofer is? I'm a newb but saw everyone jump on this deal so I ordered one myself.

damn I can't believe I missed this deal. I go to the point of "submit order" 2 days ago, and it said, sorry invalid item in cart.
Any chance of Amazon matching this deal soon or this dropping in price any where else?

Since it is now out of stock, I doubt it.

Thanks, I read that already but still kind of confused. Does this mean it needs to be hooked up with the receiver to be powered?

Did anyone pick theirs up yet? Wondering how hard the box will be to transport.

Funny. Same boat and then some. Bought the HK two weeks ago. Pieced together 7.1 pioneer speakers for $240. "Completed" my system with a $95 Samsung HW d7000za AVR with 3D BR player (weird huh?) to replace the HK Friday morning--in fact I had not been back from the BB store 30 minutes when I saw this deal. . .and still had to order.

I'm not sold on the HK. It's their first crack at a budget digital switching amp (they've done commercial ones for $$$) and have been fire sale priced from a little over a month after release (yes including the holidays--but maybe this was their "walmart xmas variant" attempt). I will be returning this one.

If I hadn't just pieced everything else together, it would be a no brainer to keep this Onkyo system for $150. Its for a Bedroom theater after all--don't need to fill 500+ feet with sound.

Did you have speakers picked out to go with the HK? Pricewise pretty apples and oranges as the HK is $50 more than the whole Onkyo system. And the HK will end up being $400 or more.

If this Sammy works out, I am out $350 total for a 7.1 setup with 2 floorstanding, 5.25 center, and 4 bookshelves. If I wanted to pare down the total, could make it 5.1 and put the last two speakers in the living room system. . .$300. It has a 3D BR player that does 2D>>>3D conversion (worth $50) plus it has wifi, smarthub, etc etc. I'm really looking at $200-250 cost in comparison and that works for me.

If it were more for home theater and your space was not too large I would save the $$ and go with the Onkyo. If nothing else it would buy you a year or two to piece together several "deals of the year" for the replacement, which would probably be worth the $150. BTW, the HK is not one of these!

5 minutes after I ordered this Onkyo system, I saw they dropped the Onkyo Rc-430 receiver to $140. Probably would have been a better buy for me. At least I wouldn't be pondering returning the Pioneer speakers.

&#*@*$ SD (and thanks also)
