Product Details

Onkyo 2-Channel Black Stereo Receiver, Model TX8050

Quality Stereo Audio with Added Network Functionality

Onkyo’s hi-fi revolution gathers pace with the TX-8050. This finely sculpted stereo receiver delivers two channels of audio precision to entertainment spaces where you don’t need advanced video processing or multichannel audio. Analog A/V inputs on the TX-8050 are augmented by digital optical and coaxial audio inputs, a Universal Port for Onkyo peripherals, and a front-side USB input for direct digital connection of iPod®/iPhone®. The receiver’s network capability, meanwhile, lets you stream internet radio or play audio from a PC or network audio storage device. Behind the smart aluminum façade lies a massive transformer and large capacitors that provide clean amplification power and help push performance well beyond the norm.

        Pros

        • Clear Sound
        • Interfaces Well With TV

        Cons

          Best Uses

            Comments about Onkyo 2-Channel Black Stereo Receiver:

            Use to play cable TV music channels on deck. Great for that. Has more inputs than I'll ever use.
            Could have better FM antenna - only get 2-3 FM stations, depending upon weather, from the little single-wire antenna included. Will need to install a different one in the future.

            Service and delivery comments:

            This company's customer service is absolutely fantastic! They assisted me in choosing a product to meet my need, delivered promptly, then helped me with choosing the best speaker setup.

              Comments about Onkyo 2-Channel Black Stereo Receiver:

              For the price, it's hard to top the TX-8050 for the features it delivers. While it's only a 2-channel receiver, I wouldn't recommend it for a home theatre. That being said, it does support network connectivity (streaming audio and DLNA) and second listening zone that can be driven by a source other than the primary zone.

              While I don't use the iPod dock (sold separately), I do use the iPhone remote app to control just about every feature on the unit. Note: you must have the unit connected to your network, and your iPhone must also be connected to your network for this to work.

              My only gripe is there aren't independant buttons to select the source, it's been replaced with a dial. Minor, but I have three other Onkyo receivers and I'm just used to their configuration.

              Bottom line, I would buy this unit again in a heartbeat. I would also recommend it to anyone looking for a solid system that delivers great sound (best with a subwoofer) for an incredible price.

                        We have grown up from a 1960's receiver to a 2014 stereo receiver. Numerous strengths: Superb tuning, numerous inputs, intuitive set-up, and internet access either through a device via USB or through ethernet. The remote requires a little attention, but we are excited with this improvement in our home sound.
