Home Theater In A Box Reviews

Aug 17, 2007
A home theater in a box is a great solution for someone who doesn't know a lot about electronics or doesn't want to take the time to put together a home theater piecemeal. It takes the guesswork out of buying separate parts and then wondering if they will be compatible.

Home theater in a box setups are made to go together so you know all the pieces will work together the first time. Additionally, these home theater setups can be less costly than buying everything separate, although just as with anything else, there are setups that will run you a pretty penny.

There are many home theater in a box brands available. Here's 4 that we reviewed along with their price and what you get for it.

Toshiba Sd-V55HT

The lowest priced setup on our list was the Toshiba Sd-V55HT, affordable at around $299.00 it's a pretty good deal for such a small imvestment. IT comes with 5.1 speakers, 60 w/channel, progressive scan DVD player, VCR, receiver, and tuner. As you might guess, the quality isn't the greatest and the sound rated low with consumers but when the price is taken into consideration it rates high overall. Cords come with a color code giving this system a super simple setup.

Panasonic SC-HT720

The Panasonic SC-HT720 is a mid priced home theater in a box that can be had for around $349.00. This system has a lot of features for the price and comes with DVD audio playback, a five disk CD changer, 5.1 speakers, 50 w/channel giving it more options that the lower priced sd-v55HT when it comes to control. Unfortunately, consumers gave a thumbs down to the picture and should quality on this setup.

Onkyo HT-S77C

The Onkyo HT-S77C is perhaps the best buy out of the lot. For $700.00 you get a system that includes 6.1 speakers, a receiver, a separate DVD player, And the DV-CP702 six-disc DVD changer. The sound and video on this system are rated very high among consumers although it does have a more difficult setup than any of the others.

Gateway KAS-303 & Connected DVD Player Bundle

This is the most expensive home theater in a box on our list and will cost you around $999.00. This system includes 6.1 speakers along with a separate DVD player that also has the ability to play digital media from a computer. Although the high price suggests quality, many consumers have stated disappointment with it overall claiming that the audio is too overpowering and setup is too complicated.
