Summary: This amplifier will leave you smiling for the rest of the day. I use it with my Onkyo C 7030 CD Player, with a pair of Mirage Omni OMD 15'S Tower speakers, and Omni S-10 subwoofer. All I can say is WOW,...beautiful sounding at any level, clarity and imaging,...Breathtaking.

Pros: Attractive Design, Does Not Get Warm, Easy To Assemble

Summary: I have been now using this amp for a little over a week, and I am absolutely in love. The amp simply sounds fantastic, driving my Infinity RS-IIIa's effortlessly even though these 4 Ohm speakers are known to be a difficult load. It weighs 40 lbs, and gets quite warm even at moderate volume levels.
Summary: Received my A-9070 last night, impatiently openned the massive box, the beautiful black steel revealed itself! Then using optical wires, RCA's and speaker wires connected my PSB's and played the first song. The result absolute bliss. Worth every penny.
Summary: Onkyo maintains its line of neutral sounding amps. If you are a receiver owner and want to get into the 2 channel audiophile world on a budget, well this integrated amp is for you. The sound is very clear, detailed, crisp, and with a high dynamic range.
Summary: This amplifier has a very muffled sound, I've heard Yahama, Arcam, Cambridge, Onkyo is really only good for receiver, being an amplification is not a safe buy, I'll return my unit, not like the sound, it is clean and clear, is a sound inside, closed, do not recommend this brand.
Lively, quick, precise, quiet; great dynamic range

Summary: I took a chance on this impressive-looking amp. By "impressive looking" I mean that the specifications were impeccable and the features (phono preamp, tone controls, digital inputs) were everything I needed. After one week, I am exceedingly impressed.
