Onkyo sold their avr business last year. Expect no product update
Apparently a quick search and reviews on Amazon shows that the system is decent but lacks a powered subwoofer. Some people have added a powered subwoofer to it. I'm not an enthusiast nor an educated individual on home theater systems but I'm in market for one. Not sure what powered sub means compared to non-powered. I suppose the former has more bass and latter lack of. Check out the reviews yourself on Amazon -linked below- and if we can get some expert opinion on this, that'd be awesome cuz it seems to me that the price is pretty decent for a system that includes a receiver. All I've seen is deals for one or the other of speakers or the receivers only on SD.

Onkyo has been around for years, better known for their avrs than speakers. Dollar for dollar, this home theater in a box should outperform most sound bars. It won't hang with with more expensive speakers/subs from klipsch, kef, Dayton, svs, etc. I wouldn't put this in a large room.

Lots of people start with a htib like this one.

Seems decent. I have an Onkyo HTIB from 2011 that's still going strong, considering this for the downstairs. Anyone have any input on this set? Also does Adorama do free return shipping? Their site wasn't clear.

Is this brand any good? Do the specs sound any good? I am new to theater systems so I wouldn't know.

I looked at a similar onkyo on Amazon at some point recently and the consensus was that there were serious HDMI issues with the unit. It might have been this model.

I got this set from Best Buy back in June for the same price to replace a dying Vizio soundbar. I've been impressed with the sound and I think for the price it's just right - getting Dolby Atmos support is definitely a plus.

Onkyo is a well established brand that has a full range of offerings across several tiers and even a separate brand for the high end. This is their entry level "home theater in a box" (HTIB) offering. It's decent for what it is, and will likely be a huge improvement over even most high end soundbars, but keep in mind it's still an entry level receiver offering.

The thing about HTIBs is they're basically an entry receiver with garbage speakers. In this case, the receiver seems to be a clone of the TX-SR393 [onkyousa.com] which has a list price of $349 by itself.
You'd likely want to at a minimum replace the speakers & sub when you can (and that will give you a noticeable jump).

A powered sub has its own amp built in and doesn't rely on the amp in the receiver. You could buy one and add it to this system for a major improvement although subs generally don't start getting decent until the $200 or so range. With that said, I suspect even a $100 sub would be a big jump (and fine in a small room). Taking this system and adding a couple decent speakers (like the Pioneer Andrew Jones SP-BS22s that everyone loves or Polk S15s) plus a $100 sub would make a world of difference.

My first Onkyo was a HT-SR800 HTIB, and I still have the receiver and it runs great. I had snagged my first real receiver from those annual factory sales (that were right around Thanksgiving), but I think they stopped like 6-7 years ago when they basically did away with Club Onkyo.

Since you mentioned not an audio enthusiast passive sub should be ok. I had a similar system before sold as it was too big to move and got a vizio wireless 5.1 which is good but still miss the onkyo
