Very ,Very Good 2-Channel Stereo Receiver

Midnight Rider, Amazon
3 August 2012
  • Summary: I bought a used Onkyo TX-8511 2-channel stereo receiver today at a local pawn shop. I had read all the reviews that I could find written about this analog, non-digital or surround sound 2-channel stereo receiver, so I decided to take a chance.

wish new receivers had these features

Dan, Amazon

  • Summary: The Onkyo TX8511 is a very good stereo receiver; offering many features that are currently not available together on new receivers at any price. Sound quality and range of the solid state amp are quite good and crisp.

10 Years and still running STRONG and clean.

Jason Worm "Jason Worm", Amazon

  • Summary: I've owned this receiver for about a decade. I have pushed this unit to the max and it hasn't failed. For years I bridged the receiver (not recommended) and ran a pair of DCM 12". I have blown both of the speakers (cross overs) but the Onkyo remains strong.

The Best Receiver I've Ever Owned

Taylor Harrell "J.T. Harrell", Amazon
27 April 2007
  • Summary: I've had this receiver for over a month. Hooked up to two Sony MB350 speakers the sound is awsome. It does have a loudness switch. Turn on the selective tone control and it gives real deep bass. I also love the tape monitor which enables me to monitor recording discs.

Like the seventies only better

John Bartlett, Amazon
16 September 2006
  • Summary: I had put off transcribing my extensive vinyl collection to cd for a variety of reasons. But, a couple of months ago I decided to go ahead and start the project. I still had and was very happy with my mid seventies two channel system consisting of a HK730 Receiver, Akai GXC750D Cassette Deck, Dual...

Solid workhorse

kc "kc31824", Amazon
5 July 2006
  • Summary: We're using this to go from PC audio card to speakers for a small gym. It works very well. Simple. Low price point. Reliable. Lacks the bells and whistles of a surround sound system, but works great for basic stereo needs

Because I was spoiled before with a Nakamichi receiver...

Amazon.com-lover, Amazon
31 January 2006
  • Summary: this Onkyo pales in comparison. It is servicable and clean sounding but unfortunately has a tinny, sharp sound. Not much in the way of warmth or depth, even after messing with the bass and treble controls.

Non-existent customer service

Daniel Hollander, Amazon
24 January 2006
  • Summary: I am having some problems with my receiver and, from what I've found, you can't contact a live customer support rep if your life depends on it. I've sat on hold for hours trying to get someone. Complete joke.

Best is Back to Basics....

W. Pender "honuscat", Amazon
10 December 2005
  • Summary: I previously owned Pioneer and Yamaha surround AV receiver at twice the price of the Onkyo TX-8511. Neither came close to the spacious and clear sound I get through the Onkyo. Since I primarily listen through headphones, I had no real use for multi channel monsters with all the fixings.
