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

Can't Go Wrong

 

This is a great piece of equipment and it does what it does quite well. Volume control is smooth and the remote is laid out & organized well. Hook up literally took minutes. I have a graphic EQ and this receiver does not have inputs to recognize...

Excellent receiver for the money

 

I bought this receiver for my outdoor space to drive a pair of speakers plus a second zone in the yard. Setting up the wifi with the separately purchased adapter was extremely easy. The options for internet radio are plentiful, and I haven't had any...

Good buy for internet & wireless capable receiver.

 

Bought this Onkyo receiver specifically to stream music playlist for a wedding. Together with Cerwin-Vega speakers this amp is very powerful with great sound quality. Used this setup for the wedding reception and it performed flawlessly. Kept the...

Stopped Using It - Collecing Dust On My Shelf

 

The Onkyo TX-8050 was a waste of my money. Within a month or two of purchasing it I stopped using it. It cannot stream music at all. It will start to play a song and ½ through it will start to buffer, play a little bit more, then buffer some more....
