Works Great, not very powerful but clean sound at max volume
11 February 2013
Summary: Nice small amp with some decent surround modes. I would recomend using 6 ohm speakers as it has a hard time pushing my 8 ohm Bose speakers. If You buy one with a channel not working like this one, check the Power Output Transistors to make sure the lead is not curled and shorting on a resistor. Easy fix.
Onkyo Gold. Our receiver/amp for 15 years. A+. Optical digital input too.

Summary: We have had this receiver/amp since it was new. Similar to a Sony radio that my Mom bought in 1968 that we use daily in the bathroom in the morning, this is the best value for the dollar that I can imagine. - - - The system has Dolby 5.1 which requires getting into our brand new LG television with a service .wav file (through IR connection) and resetting the LG's optical audio output. This little beastie supports a variety of concert hall echo options. Great sound.
Summary: I needed an A/V receiver and I have other components by Onkyo so I thought that as long as it works great, it was listed as being in excellent condition. The receiver looks good but did not work, it would not power on so I did not get to hear the sound quality.
Summary: I purchased this receiver on eBay recently because I needed an inexpensive, but good quality, receiver. I bought it for $55.00 plus shipping - not bad for something that listed for over $250.00. It is an older model - late 90's I think. Although this one met MY performance needs, these models seem to have a display problem as mine is extremely dim but legible(I knew this b4 purchasing it though). And I am sure it will only get dimmer with use.
