The Onkyo HT-S990THX is one of the first systems to meet the standards set by THX for overall performance, and the premium price reflects this achievement. Delivering full 7.1 surround sound, the receiver is simple and powerful, with plenty of signal routing options, although it does not support HDMI. The HT-S990THX is also compatible with XM Satellite Radio and the iPod. Now almost seven years old, the HT-S990THX doesn't sport nearly as many features as other systems in its price range, but it still performs.
