Annoying Buzz!!!

Jeff Tiemann, Amazon
22 March 2015
  • Summary: I originally reviewed this on B&H where I bought this system. I initially gave it 4 stars because the system is well built and produces a great sound through my JBL and paradigm speakers.

Classical Cellist Approves!

CelloStrydom, Amazon
23 December 2014
  • Summary: I am a professional classical cellist. I listen exclusively to classical music, which places high demands on audio equipment: huge and often sudden dynamic changes, complex textures that demand excellent instrumental separation, and a variety of timbres that are difficult to reproduce accurately.

Noticeable Buzz

B. Nicodemus, Amazon
21 June 2014
  • Summary: I have always been an Onkyo fan and have bought several Onkyo components over the years. This purchase was a big mistake. Sound is fine, build quality is fine, but there is a significant chronic buzz coming from the device that is noticeable during quiet passages and particularly noticeable when the...

Fine

Cary Brenson, Amazon
10 May 2014
  • Summary: It has a noticeable buzz to it which is unacceptable for what is marketed as an audiophile grade amplifier. If it weren't for the buzz, this would be a great amp.

Sound is good, but there is hum

Andy Yang, Amazon
13 January 2014
  • Summary: Considering its price, I think the sound is very good. However, as many people have said, there is hum from the chassis (not related with volume, and not from speaker or headphones).

I like it

Winston, Amazon
22 August 2013
  • Summary: I purchased an Onkyo A-5VL 9 months ago and I'm quite happy with it. I wanted an integrated amp primarily for listening to music, but that could also double as a 2-channel home theater system.

Great sound, with caveats.

Anthony Torrez, Amazon
27 May 2013
  • Summary: This amp has a wonderful sound, however, I just could not get over the following: -buzzing, -high heat output -lack of preouts -lack of loudness (Onkyo calls it Phase Matching Bass Boost) -worst remote I've ever seen or used It ended up going back. Oh well.

incredible IA

athan4, Amazon
4 March 2013
  • Summary: I've been involved with stereo equipment for more than 35 years, I've never come across an all out bargain like the onkyo. The sound is smooth and powerful, with great detail and balance. To have an IA with both a MM and a MC phono pre-amp is very unusual--not to mention an optical input.

Pretty and Precise

Amazon
28 January 2013
  • Summary: *ASSAULT AND BATTERY* I have mixed feelings about this unit. I bought it as an Amazon Warehouse Deals open box and I'm sure it was fine when it left their warehouse. But it was packed with almost comedic negligence.
