Summary: I have a Emotiva mini x a100 driving Paradigm Studio 20 v3 Monitor speakers, when I got the Onkyo I hooked up my speakers and wanted to compare it with my Emotiva to be honest I can't really tell the difference other than the fact that it's a little me puncher and better sound stage.
Summary: Great amp with good controls and very good sound. The DA converter works perfect with my optical feed from a PC. However what were they thinking with the marking ink for the controls, you need a flashlight to see the grey markings, ugh.
Summary: I'm extremely pleased with this purchase. I needed something to replace my 36 year old Technics 25 watt receiver (which still works fine by the way). Plugged into my Bose 301 bookshelf speakers my record collection has never sounded better.
Summary: This integrated amplifier looks and sounds great. This replaced a tube amp and pre-amp combo. I was sad to see the tube amp go, but it was getting too noisy; tons of hum. I love the diversity of the sound possibilities with this amp.

Summary: My Kenwood integrated amp purchased in 1977 has stopped working, I was very concerned that the new products would not sound as good. I actually purchased one replacement and returned because the sound quality was poor.
Excerpt: This amp is clean, detailed and powerful. The imput variety is supurb, the only problem I saw was the optical imput was a little loose and caused jittering unless I put in the cable just right. Other than that, it is everything you could want in an amp.
Pros: Easy To Set Up, Good Power Output, Good Remote Control, Great Sound Quality
Excerpt: The Onkyo A-9050 replaced an aging receiver. Only took a few moments to hear an outstanding sound stage, outstanding imaging, and separation. High current low impedance design drives my 4ohm watt hungry Magneplanars. Such a deal.
Pros: Accurate Controls, DACs, Easy To Set Up, Good Power Output, Good Remote Control, Great Sound Quality, High Current Design
Summary: Fantastic, using this in conjunction with Onkyo 7.2 receiver. Stereo subs are really necessary. Anyone who has been to an organ concert, or plays organ (pipe) knows that bass come from both sides of the area, and rear also depending on the size of the organ installation.
Summary: Just amazing, very powerful, it works with a pair of focal 726 standspeakers, the bass is pretty deep, and the twiters very very alive!!, thay are conected with optical to my tv, and I used as a home cinema, and to play music whit my xbox one, I insist, is very very powerful, and the sound is really...
