Onkyo SBT-A500 has arrived.    Below I have posted pics of the unboxing.    I will be making comparisons to the Yamaha Ysp-2700 even though the Yamaha is 7.1 and the Onkyo is 3.1.2.

Hi Luis!  Really excited about your new system!  I'm looking at one of these for my living room as well.  If you could tell me quick, what is the length of the cable that connects the main box to the speakers?  I would really appreciate it.
Can't wait to hear more about your setup and review of the system too!

Can I ask where you bought it? I am looking to get one of these myself. I see it up for pre-order on B&H and Amazon.
Thanks!

Thanks for the info on the cable length, Luis.  Just needed to know if it could reach from my component shelf, through the wall, to the fireplace mantel.  Hope you're enjoying it!

For a 3.1.2 system, it is a very impressive sound bar.  The quality is top notch.  Once you get it calibrated, this system produces very good surround sound.  For those wondering about the sub, it is very capable of producing very good LFE.  Much more deeper than the Yamaha (Ysp-2700)  I too was wondering if I could get good surround with a 3.1.2 system and it proved very satisfying.  The key is good calibration.  It took me 3 tries to get it right.  Its important that you set the mic at ear level and seating distance.  Finally decided to use a tripod and that worked to perfection.  MAD MAX  ATMOS was excellent.  TRANSFORMERS AGE OF EXTINCTION ATMOS was a great test because of all the effects and rumblings in the movie.  Again, this unit handled it with no problems.  My last test was SUICIDE SQUAD and again, great audio.  This system can get really loud.  Calibration is key for this system.  Will see how this system fairs with gaming.  Below is a picture to give an idea of the size of the unit.  Tv is an lg Oled 65"

Have you been able to get any gaming done with this?  I'm looking to pick one up.

Hi Luis I also eagerly await your full review, this seems to be a great year to pick up a sound bar. I didnt even hear about this one I was waiting on a review of the Sony HT-ST 5000 but this unit looks very nice and checks all the boxes.
Edit
What entertainment center is that? I really like it!
