Solid basic receiver
 
Just What I wanted. Pulls in FM stations well. Has plenty of "old fashioned" inputs for what I use. It is hard to find something that isn't meant for home theater these days with the extra cost and complexity. It was refreshing to find "Just the basics; well done". Straight forward controls too.

Onkyo TX-8255
 
This is a great receiver for the money. My old Pioneer SX-50 was a good receiver for over 25 years, but it developed a short in it which would cost more to fix than this Onkyo cost brand new. The Onkyo TX-8255 does everything my old receiver did and more and better. It's true that it doesn't have a loudness control, but it really doesn't need one. The tuner is exceptionally good especially on FM. And CDs sound outstandingly good.

No frills, good sound
 
This receiver replaced a Sony STR 397 that had a continuous static problem that was never fixed. I gave up on the Sony and bought the Onkyo. I use it to power two Polk tower speakers hooked up to my HDTV and DVD player.The receiver is basic, no frills. Bass, treble and balance controls are on the front panel. There is no loudness control. There are multiple memory settings for music stations. All the standard connections are in the back including an input for an iPod (docking s...

A True Best Buy...
 
This review is from: Onkyo TX-8255 Stereo Receiver (Electronics) I've wondered at times about some of the glowing reviews I've read online over the years for various products: Are these real folks or PR plants from manufacturers? (Hey, it happens all the time in the hotel biz.) So... if you share my suspicions, no, despite what follows, I don't work for Onkyo in any way shape or form--but I have been involved with audio in various capacities for many years. And... ...

Excellent receiver for the money.
 
This unit honestly lives up to the description. All I wanted was a receiver for listening to music and I didn't want to pay for home theater features that I wouldn't use. The 8255 was exactly what I needed. It's a very well built and sharp looking outfit with the best sounding AM/FM tuner I've ever heard. One feature that impressed me most was the Phono input. The sound quality produced when connected to my SL-1200MK2 turntable with a Shure M97 cartridge was absolutely outstanding. It's nice...

The amazing invisible amp. Revisited
 
I bought this receiver to replace a fine amp, preamp combo that was 25 years old and had served me well (a NAD). So this one has a tuner built in - oh well. I'll almost never play the radio. But this unit is just amazing. It impresses me as being totally transparent. There is no noise, no hum, no nothing to let me know that I'm listening to a cd, unless the signal is on the cd or other audio source. Either stuff has gotten a lot better in the last 25 years, or my hearing has deteriorated. Heh he...

Great Basic Stereo Receiver
 
I got this for my parents for xmas, to replace their old Sansui that finally gave up the ghost. I hooked it up New Years day, and was amazed with the sound/power this unit puts out. I have a DE898 Sony stereo that cost about 2x last year, and with the same speakers does not sound anywhere near as clear or crisp. I tried both Polk monitor, and Bose InterAudio series and the results were the same; this receiver puts out plenty of power, and sounds very crisp. The highs are not tinny, and the base ...

Wow a true bargain @ $150 thanks to Amazon! I had tried a Sherwood RX 4109 as I just needed a basic no frills 2 channel receiver for the basement and the reviews were good as was the price at $80 on sale at the Shack. However, when playing some CD's I was shocked at the flat boring sound and lack of power too. We run pretty nice Paradigm 2 way bass reflex speakers down there and they had shined with an old Onkyo which had to go due to dirt build up at the volume pot that I couldnt get to work so...

A Very Good Two Channel Receiver
 
I would like to offer my own personal opinion regarding my purchase and use of the Onkyo Receiver model TX 8255. Right off the top I must admit that I am more pleased with this receiver than I have ever been with any other receiver I have owned. I go back to the days of tube type components and I have owned a couple of the old style Marantz receivers, a Yamaha and a Harmon Kardon as well as Mackintosh components over the years and all have performed to varying degrees of satisfaction. Each unit ...

What I expected - no surprises, clean sound.
 
Per the title, and considering the price, I gave it 5 stars. However, I would not have purchased it had I been more careful to note that it has no loudness button. That came as a surprise and is missed compared to the receiver it is replacing - an old Harmon Kardon 930, (which cost over four times this unit back in 1973!). Although increasing the bass and treble at low volume levels helps somewhat, bass and treble cannot compensate the same way as EQ for the Fletcher Munson curve, (now ISO 22...
