Fantastic Integraed Amp
 
I am using this with a pair of Usher S 520 monitors and the sound is fantastic! I was worried that the amp would not drive the Ushers because they are 86db sensitivity but I can honestly say this is no problem. I have ownned NAD and Arcam 40 watt integrated amps and the Onkyo is by far the best especially considering the features.

Should put many other amp to shame!
 
I ordered this integrated amplifier from amazon and got it the next day. Great job amazon! I was on a tight budget when I decided to put together a small stereo system for my bedroom. I didn't want to go with the mass market stereo receivers since the sound quality is not that great. For the project, I didn't need much power since my bedroom is only 12x14 ft. I've done alot of research and tried many amplifier and found that this Onkyo integrated amplifier is superior in many ways. Do not be foo...

Lots of value, sound is not my cup of tea
 
Pros: Build quality, power, functionality (build in DAC)Cons: Usability, sound qualityI had the A-5VL for about two weeks before returning it. I give the A-5VL 5 stars for features. It is a relatively powerful integrated amp WITH a high quality DAC. Better quality than the DAC in your typical A/V receiver, and WAAAY better than the DAC in your computer or ipod. There are simply no other hi-fi integrated amps at this price point (or anywhere near it) that have built in DACs. From that perspective...

Makes outstanding centerpiece for an audiophile iPod system
 
I purchased this amplifier because I wanted something better than even a high-end iPod dock (such as the Bowers & Wilkins Zepplin.) I wanted to use my iPod (actually iPhone 3GS) as the source for a small and mid-priced, but high-end audio system and I didn't want to sacrifice music quality or convenience. I also wanted something smaller than a full receiver that wouldn't stick out in my den/library that could accept a digital audio signal, which is almost impossible to find in a mini system, b...

A-5VL VS. A-9555
 
After years of getting mixed result from multi-function receivers, I have decided to try a dedicated stereo amp to see if the music really sounds better. And it sure does. There are many brands out there but the real choice (testing the equipment) is quite limited. Since my favorite mid price brand (Harman Kardon) does not offer much in the integrated amp area, the focus shifted to another popular and easily available name -Onkyo. The A-9555 got pretty good marks, but there was very little infor...

Very musical - needs break-in
 
This review is from: Onkyo A-5VL A-5VL Integrated Stereo Amplifier (Electronics) Before you judge this amp, you must let it break-in for at least one week. It sounds very hard in the begining. But with time, the sound really smoothes out and the presentation becomes very musical.I love this little amp. I bought it as a backup for my main system when one of my UcD400 modules failed in my power amp right before Christmas 2009. It is replacing an Aikido tube pre (using ...

Solid performer.
 
First of all I realy love this amp. I run it with KEF IQ30 with crossovers modified toXQ20. The amp itself has enaugh energy to deliver 100db measured with SPL C weighted 8ft from the speakers at amp half power in room 16x16 ft. I like its super dynamic and awesome separation, very wide and deep sound stage but... with other than onboard DAC. I used Dacmagic and modified Fiio D3 with superior resoults. A5vl+Dacmsgic is a blast at this price range. $30 fiio d3 with Analog Devices AD8656 op am is...

Great DAC AMP - but missing important features
 
There is a huge movement in the entry level audiophile arena to move towards Pre-Amp or Intergrated AMPS with a solid DAC. Onkyo delivered and the DAC in this AMP is Burr-Brown 192 kHz/24-Bit DAC - one that you would see in many $2k plus Preamp DACS. Great DAC, two digital inputs (to bypass DAC on the ipod or CD), and enough juice. I had listen to the system and at the $350 price point it was a no brainer - but wait.NO PRE-OUTS?!?!That is an audiophile (even an entry level audiophile) No-No! Ho...

Noisy volume knob & silence...(All good now...UPDATED 9/5/14)
 
2014 UPDATE 4-STARS:---Fast forward three years, I still own this little unit and have grown quite fond of it, warts and all. Yes the very slight power-on buzz is still there, but just like the buzz from my Panasonic plasma, that no longer bothers me and I would need to put my ear very close to hear it. Of the three inputs, I find the highest quality in the following order: Analog (for SACD), Coaxial, Optical. For headphone listening, as long as I turn the volume knob no higher than 10 o'cloc...

Buzzes and hums much more than it should
 
This Onkyo amp has so much promise, and when I first got it I was excited about it. I let it burn in over 100 hours, and I just could not eliminate the persistent hum it has. This actually interferes with quieter passages of music, such that I had to return it.Not sure, as other reviewers have said, whether this is an inherent problem with this Onkyo. I tend to think not, and yet I also don't want to try another unit either.I am done with Onkyo. I bought a refurb receiver a couple years ago and ...
