Onkyo TX-8050 review

 

Onkyo is a brand more typically associated with AV receivers. Some boast price tags that only the most serious of movie-lovers would consider. But what about those who want a good, standard, stereo amp? The TX-8050 might just be the answer.

Clean sound, Ethernet connectivity, USB direct support

Controls

If you want a stereo receiver and nothing else, the TX-8050 is a good choice

Unit failed

 

This was my first experience with Onkyo. It will probably be my last.

Fit a niche need for my home network. Newegg's service as always was superb

Motherboard failure after 2.5 years of ownership. The cost of repair from the authorized Onkyo Service Center is more than purchasing a new unit under full warranty

Great bargain

 

I am very happy with this product.

Very easy set-up, great sound with my JBL outdoor speakers. I am probably under-tasking this device as I am only using it to play itunes/ipod and internet radio on two speakers, and it can certainly do much more. I am very pleased with how quickly I...

The interface via the remote can be a bit tedious and cumbersome. It would be great if there were a way to program the receiver with favorites and such once it was on your network with some software

Good unit for the price

 

We were looking for something that worked with all of our old stuff (turntable, CD player, tape player) and would still be right for new stuff (iPad, etc)...so, yeah, nice fit. Only fault is the tiny lettering above the control knobs. C\'mon, some of...

A good, all around performer

 

I used this receiver for music listening; including vinyl records, CD\'s, Cassettes, and FM stereo broadcast. The remote is quick and responsive, once you get used to locating the volume control. You will need a subwoofer to get the best base sound....

Just what I needed

 

For several months, I had been looking for a stereo receiver in the $300-$500 range to replace my existing one. This unit was on my short list of possibilities, since I wasn\'t interested in a home theater system, but a good quality system for enjoying...

Onkyo TX 8050 - Nice & Network-Ready

 

I like listening to the local radio stations broadcast of my favorite football team while watching the TV. Onkyo is world renown for their Tuners. They made the best tuners in the world in the 80\'s. Some say Mcintosh tuners were better. This may be...
