Summary: Plenty powerful. I purchased mainly to power a '70's turntable and other audio decks. It does the job and has one of the easiest to use remotes I've seen for years. Very common sense and fun to use.
Summary: Very straight forward. I like the very small increments you can increase / decrease the volume. There is a lot more resolution to control the volume than most receivers I have owned or tried out. It is very easy to navigate the controls and menu as well.
Summary: A well made stereo receiver with sub preout. It uses an analog amplifier to boot (beefy/heavy components in this one)! This is hard to find now a days and gives me the assurance that my receiver will last years of use vs a digital amp.
Summary: The only complaint I have is that the labeling of the controls, bass, treble, etc, are not as visible as shown in the photos. The labels are so light that even with natural lighting you cannot read them.
Summary: I am using the Onkyo TX-8020 to amplify audio for HDTV, CD, FM tuner (in the unit), and a Shure microphone via pre-amp. Receiver exceeds expectations. It has enough power (50 watts RMS per channel) to do the job, and provides clean, non-distorted sound for all applications through my existing 3-way...
Excerpt: This is the perfect receiver for in an apartment building. Easy to control the volume. I previously has a 100 watt/channel with surround & 12" sub. I lived in a house & that was reasonable because I could use the higher watts then.
Summary: Got this because the Onkyo TX something else could only run two speakers and one of the connections stopped working. Chose this model because it will run four speakers, assuming if the same thing happens a couple of years down the road, we'll still have balanced sound.
