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...
Summary: I purchased this unit to replace an Adcom 565 Preamp and possibly an Adcom GFA 545 II Amp. It can be used as a preamp which is a great feature. Initially I set up as just a preamp and there was no degradation in sound quality, so then tried it as a standalone to compare.
Great build qaulity, modern sound and weak phono stage

Summary: The build quality of the Onkyo a-9050 is simply amazing and it looks like an expensive audiophile grade amp. I tested the amp to drive several speakers including Harbeth HL P3ES, Polk TSI 300, Polk Monitor 45 and Infinity Primus P152.
