A very decent tuner

Henry Flower, J&R

  • Summary: I had a Sangean HD tuner for 3 years which did not survive a move. Onkyo T4555 has noticeably better build quality and marginally better sound, being 3x more expensive. [...

Everything Excepts SETI

  • Summary: Gets everything excepts short wave and alien deep space broadcasts. XM, Sirius, Standard FM, Standard AM, HD FM, HD AM. Mostly I listen to XM and I got this so I can carry my mini tuner from this tuner to my other XM ready equipment. The only thing missing is digital outputs. I have around a dozen tuners and this one is the best for stereo. But for surround sound you need digital outputs.
  • Pros: Accurate Controls, Clear Signal, Easy To Set Up, Good Sound

Excellent Tuner

  • Summary: This is an excellent AM/FM tuner with great sound quality on FM and solid build quality. One reason I chose it was to be "future proof" with regard to terrestrial digital radio (HD Radio). The FCC currently limits HD radio's signal to only one percent of the radiated power of the station. The radio industry wants this limit raised to ten percent of station power. Until that occurs this radio cannot lock onto an HD signal reliably.

Very Good Tuner

  • Summary: There are not many "quality" component tuners out there with HD and Satellite radio to choose from, the only competitor to the Onkyo out there I would consider is the Rotel RT 1084 tuner, but it is over twice the price. The tuner is easy to install and operate and so far meets my expectations.

Price and Quality

  • Summary: I bought the Onkyo Tuner without knowing exactly what to expect for the quality of the sound and the look.When I had finished the installation of the T-4555 (with the XM antenna), I was impressed by the result of the integration of the tuner with other quite expensive sound components. After activating the XM radio, I listen a song that I was also able to play the CD version [$] and compare. The difference is not very big.
  • Pros: Accurate Controls, Clear Signal, Easy To Set Up, Esthetic and finish, Good Sound
  • Cons: None

A good tuner for HD entry...............

Wayner, J&R

  • Summary: I thought that inital set-up was a snap, especially programming stations into memory. There was some confusion as the manual had things in the units display that wern't there (like the mono or stereo lights) but the tuner had something the manual didn't discuss (SPS). I assume that SPS stands for "Stereo Program Source" or something like that as neither the mono or stereo lights ever come on.
