Excellent Buy

  • Excerpt: Replaced my 26 year old NAD which was on it's last leg. I was apprehensive about all the connections but set up was a piece of cake. This receiver has a phono input which was important to me. Radio sounds great and the boost to the TV sound when I watch netflex is perfect.
  • Pros: Easy to set up, Great sound, Phono Connection, Radio Is Static Free
  • Cons: None

OK amplifier; disappointing tuner

Long time audio enthusiast, B&H Photo
31 March 2015
  • Excerpt: I use this as a rear channel amp for listening to SACDs, and as a low-electricity alternative to my high-powered front stereo system when listening to talk radio. As an amp, it works well. The tuner is the worst I've ever used, and I'm including clock radios and portables.
  • Pros: Comprehensive Remote, Good amp
  • Cons: Mediocre Fm Tuner, Terrible Am Tuner

Simple. Easy. Excellent sound!

  • Summary: Super simple setup. Paired with Bose 201s and a Sony 100watt sub. I have a Technics SL-1900 running into the phono input and an AirPort Express into the CD input for digital music. Phono preamp really makes my LPs come alive and works great with my SL-1900.

Solid Receiver with Old School Controls and Remote

Honest John, Amazon
7 March 2015
  • Summary: This is a light weight solid unit with 50W/channel into 8ohm speakers. It runs cold, no heat issues. Volume control is quiet linear. It works without much setup required. Old school knobs and buttons plus a simple remote make it a breeze to operate even in a dark room.

  • Summary: Great economy receiver with clean sound. I wanted a simple stereo receiver for my workshop that could control two sets of speakers. I have inside speakers hooked up to A channel and exterior patio speakers hooked up to B channel.

An incredible component for the money

envirogeek, Amazon

  • Summary: UPDATE 3/23/2015: A month of listening later, my opinion is exactly the same: a fantastic bargain. One really great feature I didn't mention below (but another reviewer rightly did) is the extremely gradual volume adjustment.

It sounds just as good, if not better than any of those ht ...

Bryant Edward Penn, Amazon

  • Summary: Combined with having a living space not conducive to true 5.1 sound, and after having another home theater receiver fail after a couple of years, I decided to simplify my sound system. Paired to my Definitive Technology Studio monitor speakers and my Emotiva 10 in.

Just What We Needed

EGT, Amazon
6 February 2015
  • Summary: Our ancient Yamaha stereo receiver finally bit the dust and I did a lot of looking for a replacement before choosing the Onkyo TX-8020 stereo receiver. It is matched with Mission speakers, a Sony CD player and a Bang and Olufsen turntable.
