Onkyo A-5VL

 

Without the inclusion of video in/out in this unit, it is hard for it to become the only amplifier in your home theater setup. If you are looking at keeping your audio system separate from your video system then there could be a case to include this...

Onkyo A-5VL review

 

Onkyo must be applauded for taking the plunge into affordable digital amps, but the A-5VL is beaten by the best analogue alternatives

Unusual hybrid design ; tonally balanced ; clean, precise delivery

Lacks the detail and dynamics to produce the nuance and texture of the best ; unpleasant remote control

This hybrid amplifier plays it clean and precise, but there are far better analogue alternatives on the market

Product Specifications

Beneath the A-5VL's slim and elegant exterior lies a surprising amount of amplification muscle. You might wonder how Onkyo managed to incorporate the functionality of a pre- and power amp into such a slender integrated package. The key is the A-5VL's extremely energy-efficient design. Because it produces much less heat than a typical amplifier, the A-5VL requires only a small heat sink. This leaves ample space for a range of precision-crafted audiophile-grade parts, such as specially audio-tuned capacitors and thick, low-impedance copper bus plates. The A-5VL employs Onkyo's exclusive VLSC technology to ensure a smooth, pulse noise-free signal during conversion from digital to analog. You'll enjoy precise and faithful reproduction of any audio source, whether it's a CD, a tuner, or a turntable.
