        Comments about Onkyo Black Stereo Receiver:

        I've had this for three weeks and haven't had a problem. I purchased it to set up my turntable in a separate room from my television/home theater. I didn't have a huge budget and this gave me some great sound for the price. I like the ability to limit the max volume and set a starting volume for each component when the receiver is powered on.

            Comments about Onkyo Black Stereo Receiver:

            I use this with a CD player and an HD tuner in addition to the internal tuner to power two separate speaker systems to pipe music to two major areas of the house. I will be adding Sirius to this receiver. I have another stereo system worth about $7,00 in a den - hard to tell the difference.
            Very please with the sound and ease of use.

            Best Uses

            • Basic Systems

            Comments about Onkyo Black Stereo Receiver:

            I opted for this one over the 8255 because of the video inputs. This has streamlined my set up and I now get great stereo sound from my tv, dvd player, vcr, and game console. I did need to refer to the instructions to set it up properly, but it really wasn't that complicated. The remote is nice to have also. The only downside is that it is rather large and heavy so you want to be sure you are putting it on a good sturdy piece of furniture.

            Service and delivery comments:

            It arrived very quickly and was well protected in a large outer box with lots of padding inside.
