Onkyo TX-NR808 review

Pocket Lint
9 August 2010
  • Conclusion: Music too is treated with delicacy and brutal assault in equal measures. There isn't a song we've found that hasn't been improved by the 808's handling. Even Jedward's album turns from a turgid, pointless abuse of the human ear into a turgid, pointless abuse of the human ear with better bass response. This receiver could add meat to a vegan sausage. If there's one criticism it's that, at times, it can be a bit too aggressive.
  • Pros: An amazing array of features and functionality is supported by, possibly, the most bombastic audio performance ever provided by a sub-£1k AV receiver
  • Cons: At times, its pure aggression can be a tad overbearing - especially if you're trying to settle down to a lightly-paced drama or romcom

TX-NR 808

16 November 2010
  • Conclusion: Klang und Ausstattung des TX-NR 808 von Onkyo sind top, doch wegen der relativ geringen Leistungswerte gehen Punkte verloren; dabei hat der Receiver eigentlich das Zeug zum Siegertyp. Wenn Onkyo seine Vormachtstellung behalten will, sollten die Entwickler ihren überängstlichen Umgang mit Schutzschaltungen noch einmal überdenken. Zwar leidet der Klang kaum darunter, doch der Testsieg geht so flöten.
