    This unit is simple to set and go. I have it stuffed in a closet with a CD changer that feeds a couple of ceiling mount speakers and it is a perfect match for an old guy like me.


  • Excellent value for the money

    I took this receiver home yesterday and it is a pleasure to listen to. I paired it with a set of R150 Polk Audio bookshelf speakers I received at the same time and the two go very well together. I am very happy with both. Incidentally, this receiver has a great AM tuner - totally unexpected since all my previous receivers had a bad AM tuner. The FM tuner is just as good. The "Direct" mode lets you listen to the sound without corrections and it is a nice extra. If I need a bit more bass, then I go into the "Tone" mode and add some bass and treble. Even my wife was pleasantly surprised when she heard the sound. That tells me a lot. :-)

    Works great but not enough power for me. Returned. It can't really push 65w speakers and make it loud.


  • Great sound quality

    When my 20+ year old receiver died, I needed a replacement that could accommodate my rebuilt Dual 522 turntable, so I fired up my web browser and did some homework. I learned that this Onkyo was one of the best options in its price range. It's handled everything I've thrown at it - LPs and CDs of several genres, likewise cassettes, even TV audio (with an additional digital adapter. As they used to say on the TV - try it, you'll like it!


  • Sounds great!

    Powers my 4 outdoor JBLs great. Need to pump it up 3/4 to get loud as it's watts are not a lot but its enough.

    I bought this to replace an old Sansui unit I have in in my basement for music and movies etc. I am extremely happy with the decision to buy this receiver.....I was skeptical at first with it only being 100 watts but after reading other reviews decided to take the gamble. What can I say other than Wow! My concerns about not enough power were addressed. It sound great with more than enough punch no matter if it's movies or music. And with it being 'old school' design, my wife has no troubles figuring out how to switch from TV, DVD, F.M. etc. even without the remote. Great value!


  • Great sound, great value

    Old school receiver. The specs on this unit are close to what we had back in the golden age of sound systems - early 80s to mid 90s. A solid 50w, intuitive remote control, you might need a small external FM antenna. It looks great, nice clean uncluttered look. I'm running a turntable and an iPod through it, they both sound great. Superb value and a really, really solid unit. Great work Onkyo.

    The machine I received does not have an optical input or digital inputs as shown on the picture. Complete waste of my time. I now have to go back to the store snd get a credit.

    I was looking for a basic good quality unit and that is exactly what I got. It was simple to set up and operate even for this senior. The sale price was excellent and did not break this senior on a fixed budget.
