Update: This deal has ended.

It takes real courage to remove the headphone jack...

Is this deal for me?

The Onkyo HT-S3800 5.1-channel home theater system is down to $199 on Amazon. This is part of Amazon's daily deals so it's a temporary price. This receiver has been on a steady decline in price for the last six months or so. Before that, it was mostly selling around $400. This price is an all new low and a steep drop from the $260-280 price it settled on around September.

Features include:

  • Six-piece surround-sound speaker system that's just the right size for smaller living rooms, home offices, or even dorm rooms.
  • Ace EQ Auto room calibration and easy Connection guide on receiver's back panel
  • Dolby Trued and DTS-HD Master Audio decoding
  • Up to 525W of Total Power
  • Bluetooth Music Streaming
  • 4K Video Support via HDMI, with 4 HDMI in ports and 1 HDMI out
  • 6.4-inch Passive Subwoofer
  • Lossless Audio Support

TL;DR

  • What makes this deal worth considering? - This is a really temporary price because it's part of Amazon's daily deals. It's the lowest ever on this receiver, which is selling for as high as $300 at other retailers.
  • Things to know before you buy! - While I'd say this is the best bang for your buck you'll get from a receiver, you could upgrade to higher level receivers like the Onkyo HT-S5800 that adds Dolby Atmos support and more power per speaker.

See at Amazon

Happy Thrifting!
