Our take on the Onkyo LS-T10 by Crutchfield's David Brown
Make just a little room for home theater
Some people think they don't have the space for home theater — not even a sound bar with a wireless subwoofer. But what if you could get clear dialogue, deep bass, and immersive sound all from a single box that fits under your TV? That's what the Onkyo LS-T10 offers. This solidly built cabinet supports most TVs weighing up to 77 pounds or with screen sizes up to 55 inches. It features four front-panel drivers, two side-panel drivers, and a woofer on the bottom. Together, they add far more excitement and drama to movies and TV shows than your TV's speakers could ever dream of doing. Best of all, you'll be able to hear every detail without sitting inches from the screen.
Three listening modes for movies, shows, and music
Onkyo's AuraSphere technology digitally optimizes the LS-T10's drivers to create a lifelike 3D effect with a large "sweet spot." That means dynamic, realistic sound won't be restricted to the person sitting front and center. Plus, there are three sound modes designed for different content. "Movie" mode delivers plenty of deep bass through the subwoofer for explosive sound effects, while making sure dialogue remains clear. "News" is perfect for dialogue-heavy TV watching, where soundtrack music and other effects aren't a priority. And "Music" mode digitally adjusts frequencies in the audio signal for well-balanced stereo sound when cranking up your favorite tunes.
Bluetooth and USB options for music
The LS-T10 offers several options to get your music playing. You could connect your disc player to the coaxial digital input. Or you could use your smartphone or computer to stream music wirelessly over Bluetooth so you can listen to your digital music collection. Or stream tunes from music services like Spotify®, Pandora®, and SiriusXM. There's even a USB port for playing digital music stored on a flash memory device like a USB thumb drive, easily controlled with the included remote.
Quick setup, easy control
Not sure you can handle this sophisticated system? Don't worry — the LS-T10 is a cinch to get up and running. A single connection between your TV and the speaker with the included optical cable is all you need to seriously beef up your TV's sound. Then, just plug the system into a power protection device and you're ready to rock. With lots of remote codes already pre-programmed into the LS-T10, there's a good chance your TV remote will control it right out of the box. If not, use the included remote to start enjoying this system's big sound throughout your living room.
Great sound for the price. I have a smaller basement so I was not in need of a ythingn that would shake the house. This sound bar provides just the right amount of bass and acoustics for the space it is in.

Soundbar Speaker Base: The Onkyo LS-T10 is an under-the-TV soundbar solution that dramatically improves your audio/video experience when watching your flat-panel TV. The LS-T10 soundbar speaker base is great for movie and music soundtracks. The LS-T10 will fit under flat-panel TVs up to 55" and weighing 77 lbs. The TV's pedestal base should be no more than 26.5" (w) x 10.375" (d). The soundbar speaker base system can connect to your television via a single analog (3.5mm) or digital (optical/coaxial) cable.
Multi-Speaker Array w/ Built-in Subwoofer: As a self-contained space-saving, virtual surround sound system, the LS-T10 features a six-channel digital amplifier to power the six-driver array; with four 2.75" full-range drivers on the front, a 2.75" full-range speaker on each side, and an active 5" subwoofer on the underside. You can adjust the volume level (-/+10) of the subwoofer independently from the main volume (0-30).
Dolby Digital Decoding: Dolby Digital is a high quality audio format commonly encoded on DVDs, Blu-ray Discs, and in TV broadcasts. Select TVs can pass Dolby Digital audio from there built-in ATSC/QAM tuner and network apps through to the LS-T10 for dynamic playback, enhanced even further with AuraSphere DSP technology. You must connect the audio signal of your Blu-ray/DVD player or Satellite/Cable box directly to the soundbar speaker base to receive a Dolby Digital signal. If you route the audio signal of your Blu-ray/DVD player or Satellite/Cable box through the TV first, it will come out as PCM (2ch) at the TV's digital output; the AuraSphere DSP technology will create a virtual surround sound effect either way.
Panoramic 3D Sound w/ AuraSphere DSP: The LS-T10 is powered by AuraSphere DSP (Digital Signal Processing) technology. It works by optimizing driver output to create a 3D surround effect from stereo sources. Unlike other DSP technologies, AuraSphere expands the sweet spot (the area in front of the TV where audio sounds best) to create a 3D soundfield that places the listener in the center of the action, wherever they're sitting. The LS-T10 offers three pre-programmed AuraSphere sound modes.
- Movie: Onboard AuraSphere technology applies custom EQ filters to get the most out of movie and game soundtracks. Deeper bass and an open mid-range carry dialog clearly, all enhanced by AuraSphere's panoramic 3D soundfield.
- Music: For music, you want plenty of punchy bass, that doesn't drown out vocals and strings. AuraSphere manipulates the EQ and sound pressure levels to best suit music playback, while expanding the soundfield so that you enjoy balanced stereo sound no matter where you're sitting.
- News: This sound mode makes dialog more intelligible and maintains clean, balanced response for all types of content, including TV programs, movies, and news. With this mode engaged, you won't have to keep raising the volume to hear what's going on. The LS-T10 simply makes TV sound clear and rich.
Analog + Digital Inputs: The Onkyo LS-T10 is fitted with both analog and digital inputs to connect your external AV components. There is one optical (toslink) and one coaxial (RCA) digital input to connect up to two digital audio sources, such as your flat-panel HDTV and Blu-ray player. The digital inputs will accept PCM (2ch) or Dolby Digital (5.1ch) audio signals. There is also one analog audio minijack (3.5mm) input for connecting a portable MP3 player with a headphone jack output or a TV without a digital output.
USB Port: The Onkyo LS-T10 features a USB (type-A) port which allows you to connect a compatible USB mass storage class device; such as select Android smartphones (Gingerbread/Froyo OS only), digital audio players, or USB thumbdrives. The unit will support music playback and basic control (play/pause & previous/next track) of MP3 music files (8-320kbps; 8-48kHz) stored on a compatible USB msc device formatted in FAT 12/16/32. The speaker's USB port will also charge your USB-enabled device while connected.
Note: The USB port is not compatible with the Apple iPod, iPhone, or iPad.
Bluetooth Audio Streaming: Pair your smartphone, tablet, laptop, or desktop computer to the LS-T10 and stream music wirelessly via built-in Bluetooth (ver.2.1+EDR) technology. You'll be able to wirelessly stream stored music and music apps on your Bluetooth-enabled devices to the LS-T10. You'll still use your Bluetooth-enabled mobile device for music navigation and song/artist information. Pairing is done with the press of a single button.
Note: Due to the differences in Bluetooth technology, some Bluetooth enabled devices may be incompatible, function improperly, or may not support all features when used with the Onkyo system.
Remote Control: The LS-T10 features top-panel controls and includes a wireless IR remote for operation of the system's power, volume, input source, sound mode, and USB playback controls. It also comes preprogrammed with IR codes for a variety of major TV brands (and learning capability for others), which means it switches on automatically with your television and responds to your TV remote volume commands.
Note: The LS-T10 is preprogrammed with IR codes for nine major TV brands; including Funai, LG, Panasonic, Philips, Samsung, Sharp, Sony, Toshiba, and Vizio, with learning capability for other TV brands.
Auto Standby: The system automatically enters standby mode if there is no operation and no sound for approximately five minutes.
