A Feature- Full Quality Product.

I have had this unit for two months now and given it a thorough trial.The sound quality is very good and I can get the tone I want quite easily by the front located control knobs for Bass, Treble and Balance. The choice of Inputs is more than adequate for my usage and there are plenty of Jack Inputs at the rear. I like having the U.S.B. socket at the front of the unit and there are plenty of Pre-Set positions for my favourite stations. A small disadvantage is the insensitivity of the Volume Control knob, an increase of Volume Level from say 10 to 34 requires a full 360 deg. turn and I would have preferred about 180 deg. this is just what I am used to, it may not bother other users. Other than that I am quite happy with this unit with it's quality appearance.

Loaded with features and sounds great!

I was a little reluctant to purchase this without being able to audition it in the store but was pleasantly surprised upon setting it up at home. It's feature rich ( the built-in DSD audio support is fantastic ), easy to navigate and most importantly it sounds GREAT. Beyond what I expected for the price... way beyond. It produces a deep soundstage with an articulate and rich sound. Nicely balanced and provides plenty of dynamics when called for. The only negative worth mentioning is the front volume knob being made of plastic, otherwise the build quality and aesthetics are quite good for the price, even on the rear of the amplifier.

Onkyo TX-8160

This is a great little stereo receiver. My only negative is the price. However, if you truly want a stereo receiver with a variety of RCA inputs, including a phono input, rather than an HDMI-based surround sound receiver, the market is not that big and thus the price is high. The TX-8160 also has several digital inputs which are useful. I bought Onkyo's higher end stero receiver because of the Airplay feature that allows me to stream my music (or free web-based radio stations) from iTunes over my home Wifi network. I really like this feature. Paired with my Wharfedale Diamond 220 speaker the sound is very good and I can enjoy my old vinyl records again.
