Summary: This Amp/Tuner is a 2006 model with old school features like tape 2 monitor , so you can hook up an equalizer , a phono so you can use an Lp turntable and many other old school characteristics .
Summary: The BEST small wattage reciever this side of $1,000. I use it everyday in my office at home. I have a second pair of speakers in my bedroom and I use the sleep timer every night to listen to spiritual material as I doze off.
Summary: I actually bought two of the Onkyo TX-8222 Receivers. One is used in the large group room for the children's program at church where it is connected to two in-ceiling speakers. It works well for what it is used for.
Summary: I didn't need a 7.1 or even a 5.1 system, all I needed was a good two channel receiver/amplifier to go with 2 Sony bookshelf speakers left over from a previous component system. The Onkyo fits the bill just fine. It has plenty of power for my wants and has alot of connection options.
Summary: After my old receiver broke down (which was just a bad radioshack model)I went looking for a good receiver for a reasonable price. I came across this model and saw all the reviews all over the internet. I didn't know much about Onkyo, and had assumed they weren't good receivers.
Summary: I purchased this receiver for use in my woodshop, which is in a basement. It is able to tune into radio stations with fairly weak signals as well as clearly driving a CD player, tape deck, and iPod. Programming the radio presets is quick and easy. The remote works for approximately 10 feet.
