Summary: The Onkyo M 282 2 channel power amplifer is a good amplifier that is easy to install and works well with my Niles speaker switch. It delivers crisp, clear sound for my remote backyard speakers.
Super Amp for the Value...Powerhouse but do not over load it
14 September 2013
Summary: The Onkyo M-282 is a pretty rubust 2 channel amp that can serve multiple purposes.. I currently own 2 of them. One of them I use for recording studio purposes to power my Yamaha NS-10s near-field monitors... The other I have powering my Zone 2 on my Onkyo TX-NR807... I have approximately 10 speakers running through a speaker switch..... Pros.... Unit its great if you are not running a low impedance load in it... Cons....
Summary: Unfortunately I had to send it back because it was damaged in shipping. I tested the amp on my system and it seems to function ok. The amp gave off a sight buzz but it did not appear to be in the sound coming from my speakers. Overall I was disappointed. I'm going to spend the extra money on an "Emotiva".
Summary: I am a very rusty do it yourself audiophile. Just bought a new house and had the opportunity to do a pre-wire prior to the sheetrock being installed. Started with a Bose Acoustimass 10 and an Onkyo receiver. Installed a pair of yamahas outside and a pair of yamahas in-ceiling in my living room. Purchased a OSD SSVC-4 speaker selector with volume control but there was no power, sounded bad. Added the Onkyo amp and all is good. Good product, and good price...
Summary: I have two CerwinVega XLS-28's both run at 6 Ohms and 200 watt peak. There is a little volume knob on back and its turned almost 1/4th the way up. It powers my beastly speakers no problem! A simple interface that you know you get your moneys worth out of! I highly recommend this for someone who is just looking for something simply with TONS of power!
Summary: With my KEF iQ10, the quality of the sound is pretty good. I actually bought it for more than one year. Mine is not old, but the manufacturing design of the product is too old. High heat production, prolonged small noice, and intermittent big "bump" sound (I have no idea why it could make that sound) are the problems that I'm suffering. As my advice, if you are going to spend 200, you can even buy a new model with 5.1 or 7.1 channel.
