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. The only negatives were that the unit was sold "as is" without either the remote control or the Owners Manual, but for the $65.00 price paid I can manage without these long lost or destroyed items.

wish new receivers had these features

  • 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. It does not have the softness and full, robust, sound of a high-end tube amp but it does pack a punch. I'm very pleased with the FM receiver capabilities and use the phonograph, monitor and multiple tape functions available.

Hail! Hail! 2 Channel...........

  • Summary: We live in a world where most people have no idea what 2 channel is let alone a tape monitor and phono input (what the hecks that for? Alvin) Well if you're a stereo nut who despises things such as ipod and multi channel surround sound crap then i got a winner for ya here son. This here Onkyo harkens back to the dark days of yore when stereo meant something and having a place to plug in your Thorens Turntable meant something too.

Merry Xmas to myself.

  • Summary: I bought this receiver so I could swap it with an earlier Onkyo Tuner which is >15 years old. The key feature is the remote control. Such a nice feature when listening to John Madden or those annoying loud commercials. Other than that I enjoy both models about the same. In fact if I could add remote control to my older model I would be just as happy.

Very Nice

Ryan Armbrust, Amazon

  • Summary: I recently recieved this item as a gift, and I am amazed by how well it has worked for me. It sounds like I have a whole new set of speakers, the clarity is very fine, and the reception is great. The only reason I rate 4 stars instead of 5 is the lack of 5.1 type speaker jacks, but since I am only running 2 speakers, and no surrounds, center channel, or sub, it works out just fine. A good stereo reciever in all.

Very good high-powered stereo receiver

D. R. Schryer, Amazon
23 September 2002
  • Summary: Despite the current fad for multi-channel audio/video recivers, most people still listen to music with just two speakers and, therefor, only need a two-channel stereo receiver. The Onkyo TX-8511 is a very good stereo receiver with plenty of power -- 100 watts per channel -- good performance specs, and all the features you really need. It's also quite reasonably priced.
