Superb
 
I purchased this amplifier recently. I own a few older, well-regarded amplifiers (tube and solid state) that cost a lot more money when new, so my expectations were not high for this Onkyo. That said, I am stunned by how nice this amplifier sounds. I run the amplifier in Pure Audio mode (press the Pure Audio button on the front panel twice, then the blue LED comes on indicating Pure Audio mode). If I didn't know better, I'd swear this was a high-end tube amplifier. There is absolutely no ba...

Superb
 
After three decades of using Sony products ranging from phones to TV's and stereo equipment, we decided to venture into the world of Onkyo. This receiver had good reviews, fair price and seemed very simple to use. Boy, what a surprise when it arrived: heavy, well constructed, actual knobs for bass and treble, easy on eyes LCD panel, and a boat-load of connections in the back. I'm actually surprised I was able to find a stereo receiver of this caliber.The built quality is excellent. In...

Good Stereo
 
I use this receiver for my whole house audio, which means it's on all the time. Hook up was easy, controls are clear and easy to use. Sound is great. Setting up the Sirus radio requires the use of the remote, which isn't obvious unless you read the manual. For the price, this is perfect for me.

Love my Onkyo
 
I LOVE this product. For 12 years, I had a top of the line Harmon Kardon, which I loved, but it died. I was skeptical about paying so little for the Onkyo, but there were so many good reviews. Well, they were right. Although there may not be quite the quantity of sound as the Harmon, the quality is fantastic. I listen to a lot of classical music, and the highs of violins as well as the bass factor are excellent. I live in a small condominium, so I don't really need tons of sound. I have s...

Great bang for the buck!
 
To say that this Onkyo is a performer for the money is an understatement. I have an Onkyo 705 surround receiver so they were my first choice for my stereo setup as well, but I auditioned a lot of other equipment in the price range, and nothing came close! This is exactly what Onkyo is known for; clean, crisp power, good signal-to-noise ratio, etc. I am using it to power some Bowers and Wilkins bookshelf speakers that have a sensitivity of about 85db, and at only 40 volume, the house is filled wi...

Onkyo TX-8555
 
I chose this receiver over a less expensive alternative with similar amplifier specs because it offered an abundance of source inputs including a phono input. I am well pleased with the choice after living with it for 10 days. The features offer a high level of convenience and flexibility and I can find no fault with the performance. I am driving a pair of inefficient acoustic suspension speakers which it handles effortlessly and my 64 year old ears haven't heard anything I didn't like at an...

Decent audio that won't break the bank.
 
I don't know why it is so hard to find a reasonably priced stereo receiver but after searching high and low for something to replace my Carvin TM 35 amp and preamp I settled on the Onkyo TX-8555. I wanted something that would give me enough inputs along with a phono input that did not cost and arm and a leg and have decent sound quality. After setting up the unit into my Klipsch speakers the sound was different from the Carvin, not bad just different. The Onkyo did not over pump the bass frequen...

Great value for less money
 
I reviewed many stereo receivers for my home which has pre-wired speakers in 4 rooms. I hooked 4 speaker sets to a speaker selector (Monster ss-4) and connected it the stereo receiver.The quality of sound, bass was excellent, clear, and crisp. I also hookedup my Satellite receiver and TV, and it works great. I like all the inputs and two zone speaker connector. The product is of high quality and price you pay for it is well worth. I paid $224 with free shipping.I recommen...

TX-8555
 
This is one awesome unit for the price. I inherited a georgeous vintage wood Stromberg/Carlson music cabinet made in the early '50's along with lots of vinyl lp's and needed to upgrade the electronics with a receiver that had a phono input for a record player ( a MUST) as well as upgrades to include IPOD, Zunes, etc.. A sixty year span in technology. No need for any other amps if you want to use a phono. It is powering 2 Bose 901 speakers extremely well. If I max it out, the neighbors complain...

Great stereo
 
I was looking for a stereo to power my home stereo system. I didn't need anything fancy of with surround; I wanted it to run three sets of i-ceiling speakers as well as my outdoor speakers. This receiver is great! Setup was a snap and I am controlling the unit with an IR repeater from areas of the house and it works great. The power is sufficient to run the speakers and the sound is great. One nice feature (especially when running several pairs of speakers) is the automatic resistan...
