Just what I wanted

  • Excerpt: And just what I needed, too. Easy to set up, does exactly the job I was looking for - playing the role of an amplifier in a budget conscious music kit that includes a turntable and a phono pre-amp.
  • Pros: Easy To Set Up, Great Sound Quality

Great sound, with caveats.

Anthony Torrez, Amazon

  • 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.

  • Excerpt: First of all, let me say that this is a surprisingly good sounding amp. In my current setup, I am using this amp with a pair of JBL Control One Pro - 5 Speakers which are connected with 10 gauge cables. My input device is an Onkyo C-7030. I also have a TV which utilizes the optical audio port. My initial experience was that the amp made a significant transformer buzz which could be heard between CD track and was very annoying.
  • Pros: Accurate Controls, Easy To Set Up, Good Remote Control, Great Sound Quality

Pretty and Precise

E. Lowenbach "Photographer", 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. It was just sitting on the very bottom of a large corrugate box with some brown paper tossed on top, and as a result it arrived beaten up. The front left foot had broken off due to in-transit trauma and was loose in the container.

Amp for External speakers for TV

David Michael Cook DDS, Amazon
24 April 2012
  • 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 A-5VL Integrated Stereo Amplifier

MarekMaterka, Rate it all!
22 September 2009
  • Summary: After years of getting mixed result from multi-function receivers, I have decided to try a dedicated stereo amp to see if the music really sounds better. And it turns out that it does. There are many brands out there but the real choice (testing the equipment) is quite limited. Since my favorite mid price brand (Harman Kardon) does not offer much in the integrated amp area, the focus shifted to another popular and easily available name -Onkyo.

Этот усилитель открыл для меня новые звуки в любимых песнях!

  • Summary: Редко оставляю где-то отзывы, но этот усилитель оставил меня неравнодушным - решил поделиться. Звук после Pioneer A-209R (при условии, что источник и акустическая система у меня остались те же) кажется нереально "живым", чистым, с великолепной прорисовкой каждой детали, появились новые звуки, любимые песни слушаю, и мне кажется, что они в аранжировке с использованием дополнительных инструментов - A-209R от меня многое скрывал :) Мне даже показалось, что я начал лучше...
  • Pros: 1. Звук, 2. Наличие цифровых входов., 3. Безупречный дизайн.
  • Cons: 1. Мелкие огрехи сборки.

Onkyo A 5VL

htechimport, looneo
28 January 2013
  • Summary: A un prix abordable, le Onkyo A-5VL propose une très bonne qualité sonore, et surtout une entrée optique, ce qui permet d'avoir un son moins dégradé en entrée. On peut regretter l'absence d'affichage de niveaux volume et balance sur la face avant de l'amplificateur lors des réglages, mais cela se fait très bien à l'oreille.

A-5VL

5 September 2009
  • Excerpt: 新機種なのにレビューが少ないので書いてみます。 家電量販店でしか試聴していないのですが、デジタル入力があるという点が大きく、 またデザインも好きだったので買いました。 ■音質 もう少し音の解像度、抜け、広がり、奥行きが欲しいです(って全部か…)。 が、そこまでやってしまうとA-1VLの存在価値が無くなるので価格なりに抑えた感じ。 厳しく言うと全体的に薄めの音で、音の分離感が最も欲しいところです。 中〜低域がスピーカの間でごちゃごちゃとした音像を作ってしまう、と言ったら 極端過ぎますが微妙にそのような感じを受けます。 また、高域の響きが多少ですが安っぽい感じもします。 艶を乗せずストレートに響かせる傾向なのでそう感じるのかもしれませんが。 ■ヘッドホン端子の音質 基本的に上記と同傾向の音です(当然かもしれませんが)。 音質は、まあまあだと思います(MDR-CD900ST、AH-D7000等で確認した主観)。 無音時にノイズを全くといっていいほど感じないところは良いです。 ■アナログ・デジタル入力の音質の差...
