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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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,...
