Pretty and Precise

Amazon
29 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.

Buzzes and hums much more than it should

TraderJim, Amazon
24 October 2011
  • Summary: This Onkyo amp has so much promise, and when I first got it I was excited about it. I let it burn in over 100 hours, and I just could not eliminate the persistent hum it has. This actually interferes with quieter passages of music, such that I had to return it.

Amp for External speakers for TV

David Michael Cook DDS, Amazon
24 October 2011
  • Summary: Bought this amp to power custom-built speaker set for Samsung LED TV, not for surround sound system. It works very well. The only negative I have noticed is no on-off feature on remote. Have to use the on-off button on the amp.

Onkyo a-5vl

24 October 2011
  • Summary: This integrated amp is perfect for anyone interested in an audio only system. I paired it with 90dB speakers (Monitor Audio BX2's) and could not be happier. The sound is clean, open, and marvelous. Incredible level of detail lets me spend hours just listening to music without fatigue.

Transformer hum makes it useless for desktop use

Evan, Amazon
24 October 2011
  • Summary: I bought this amp because it is stereo, simple to operate, and has a built-in DAC. It sounds remarkably good and would be suitable for use in a stereo entertainment center system.

Great Amp for the price

plp, Amazon
24 October 2011
  • Summary: I paired this amp with an Apple TV (latest gen) over optical audio in, and then connect 2 pairs of Klipsch outdoor speakers for the pool/patio area. This allows me to stream my iTunes library over wifi, control the content and modulate the volume straight from any iPad or iPhone.

Disappointed

Feeney, Amazon
24 October 2011
  • Summary: This little--but heavy and nicely built--amplifier has the potential to be a very good or perhaps excellent performer. I listened to it for a few hours, but just could not stand the hum/buzz coming from the amp. The amp seems to have noisy transformers, as some reviewers have suggested.

Fine

Cary Brenson, Amazon
24 October 2011
  • 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.
