I know there are lot of yoghurt jokes coming my way but still good price for the set....
With the 5.1 channel SKSHT588 speaker it will be able to deliver a Dolby Atmos sound all backed up with an immersive bass from the subwoofer. The speaker will deliver an immersing direction effect and the satellite speakers are small enough for a discreet placement and can easily be wall mounted.

With two way front speakers it will integrate an upward firing which will bounce off the ceiling and into the audience giving the impression of sounds originating from overhead.

The front speakers are complemented by two small wall mountable surround sound speakers dual drive 2 way centre speakers and also a powerful 10 inch subwoofer which will deliver 80W of bass power.

Overall the SKSHT588 is a great encompassing sound from Onkyo.

unheard of brand. Save your money and get a Sony.
Expensive for what it is, a cheap copy of the original sony version. You will hear the difference between premium audio and Chinese copies.

Haven't used it myself so can't say anything..
Dolby atmos ready AND only 5.1 - that's a clever trick ! am I missing the plot here or is this just some 5.1 speakers and they've put the ATMOS word in just for marketing but it's meaningless.

The front speakers have upward throwing channels built in on the top so give atmos effect without ceiling speakers..
How good is this Dolby Atmos ? They advertise this a lot.
Great price

it's great and there's more content (at present) for that than DTS-X, but the speakers will work for both formats (if they are in fact 5.1.2 as others have mentioned), but of course do you own research etc, depends what you watch from which sources etc

This Dolby Atmos or Dolby Atmos?
Dolby Atmos is awesome, Not every Atmos sound track is awesome but there are very many good ones, quite a few very good ones and some awesome ones.

I don't know about "This" Dolby Atmos speaker. Up-firing speakers do work very well when set up correctly and you have the right type of ceiling. Onkyo's first attempt at up-firing speakers are universally described as not bad at best so at this price and with their past effort, I don't hold out too much hope for these but you never know...

I don't know about this system but I have an Onkyo Amp and CD player for my hi-fi and they sound amazing. The amp won a 'What hi-fi' award for 2017. So unless something is really wrong at Onkyo, I'd assume this system would sound great.

Ok, which Japanese goods are poor quality? Because I've never owned something from Japan which wasn't of great quality.

No there are good ones, not that good ones and bad ones, like product manufacturered in anywhere in the world. The percentage of good ones from Japan might be a bit higher than some other countries but still, there are bad ones.

This hurt my brain, but sure.
I had these. They are not worth more than 150 really. Sound is muddy. The subwoofer is the only good thing here
Will this be better than my bush speakers? I've heard Onkyo aren't great, overheat a lot and therefore only good for frying eggs on.

Not really. I'd say look on Richer sounds and get some proper bookshelf speakers or a surround setup for the same price as this.
Please let the joke die.... Please
Is this some sort of smelly term used by foreigners?? Onk yo.......
once again you have certain people on here talking rubbish

people who don't even know what country it is from saying it's a copy of a Sony product and to stay away from cheap Chinese rubbish. When in fact onkyo and Sony are from the same country they are both Japanese

talking utter nonsense trying to deter people from buying when they absolutely know nothing about the product

Here is a link to some Amazon reviews there are 7 reviews on there and these are from people who actually own the product

I'll help out those of you who are struggling with this.

We all know Onkyo is good stuff.

We all know that it's a Japanese brand, like Sony.

It's an old joke that you will see crop up EVERY time an Onkyo product is listed, don't worry.

That bad huh!

The sub is almost always the worst component of a cheap all in one system. I've had a quite a few of these types of systems each time getting a better one until I went down the separates route. The sub will be useful but flabby, slow and booming unless you get very lucky with your room acoustics.

Bottom line you can get nice sounding all in one setups for this price nowadays. But you certainly wont get even half decent Atmos. Atmos upfiring speakers start at around 250 pounds for a pair. Or at least 800 pounds for an Atmos 5.2.1 package (open box).
