Product Description

If you're looking to get the best possible audio performance on a limited budget-and something you can use to power audio from your TV, Blu-ray player, turntable, and CD player-then the TX-8020 is for you. Passing over the extras you don't need in favor of purely musical analog power, it remains versatile enough to serve at the heart of your home entertainment system. Onkyo's WRAT delivers 50+50 W of power, with discrete output stage circuitry and a high current, low-impedance drive to effortlessly handle the most demanding loads.The sound is characteristic of the veteran hi-fi brand, with lively dynamics, a sweet and natural mid-range, and accurate timing for all kinds of music. And just like the cool vintage receivers in its genealogy, the TX-8020 has bass, treble, and balance controls as well as speaker A/B posts for multi-room setups. Add a pair of bookshelf or floorstanding speakers of your choice, connect your media players and TV-perhaps including the DS-A5 RI dock with AirPlay-and be treated to the kind of full-scale, broad-spectrum performance a soundbar couldn't hope to match.

Am 64 years old and have been into HiFi Stereo since I was a teenager. I am competent with electronics.
Have done live audio recording and assembled numerous speakers and electronic components in my time.

This TX-8020 replaces a 1990's model Onkyo receiver of the same output power and similar physical configuration.
Am powering Klipsch bookshelf speakers with a 5 1/2 inch woofer in the second bedroom. This location
is where I do a lot of casual listening while reading, etc. My input sources vary from FM (classical), Sirius, Roxu and CD.
Have not tried this with the optional unit for my iPad, but it is nice to have that feature for the future.

Have not done a direct comparison with the old Onkyo TX-8211 receiver this replaced but it seems to be very similar in design and sound quality.
This TX-8020 is more modern in as much as the remote also controls the bass and treble, they are digitally encoded rather than using a potentiometer (good).
The TX-8020 also has a digital readout for volume level as opposed to a rotating knob with a painted indicator as on the old receiver. In that regard please
understand that the indicated number for volume is NOT an absolute value of the percent of output power. I think the previous reviewer did not understand
exactly how volume controls old and new work, this one is digital and fairly linear. The older designs were analog and used a potentiometer, which is usually non linear.
At any rate, 50 watts is 50 watts, the TX-8020 is every bit as powerful as my old Onkyo rated at the same power, they both are just as loud.

How does it sound? It sounds very similar to the old receiver it replaced, the only notable difference is in how the tone controls work.

The Onkyo TX-8020 is an unusually inexpensive stereo amplifier, with only a small number of frills. I was able to get the machine up and running with only a few minutes of set-up time, where I plugged in my speakers, compact disc player, Bang and Olufsen Biogram TX2 phonograph, the AM antenna and FM antenna that come with the Onkyo receiver, and of course the power. Then, the first thing I did was pop in a disc featuring Schumann's Concerto for Piano and Orchestra, as recorded by Murray Perahia. The volume knob goes up to "80" and I found that a setting of about "70" did a great job at filling a living room of dimensions of 15 feet by 30 feet with abundant quantities of glorious sound!

The rear of the unit has sockets for the AM antenna and FM antenna (which come with the unit), fasteners for accepting bare wires from two sets of speakers (I am only using one set of speakers), socket for CD player, and other sockets. The other sockets are for tape recorder, television, and subwoofer. The unit is only 17 inches wide, and thus can fit into stereo cabinets that are relatively narrow.

The main reason I bought the Onkyo unit, is that my Yamaha RX-V363 has a slight glitch, in that if the volume knob is turned up higher than about 10% maximum, the Yamaha RX-V363 unit automatically shuts down. Another problem is that the Yamaha unit has a slight audio hum. The automatic shut-down feature of the Yamaha RX-V363 amplifier has been making me miserable for the past several years. Yet another problem is that I refrained from replacing the Yamaha unit until now, because stereophonic equipment stores are far less prevalent than they were during the1970s (when I was buying equipment from Nakamichi, Tandberg, Pioneer, Dual, and ADS).

Verified Purchase
If you're in the market for a no-frills, straight up, 2-channel receiver that can drive some relatively efficient speakers, the TX-8020 might be just the thing.

The good:
- most everything is straightforward and easy to decipher; connections are a snap
- 50 watts per channel is enough juice to drive speakers that will fill a small to mid-size room with reasonable volume levels
- enough inputs for the unit's target market
- sound quality is excellent
- receiver reception appears to be very good
- easy-to-use remote
- relatively inexpensive

The "nits":
- The descriptions for the wee little buttons for speaker selection, tone control bypass, etc. are hard to read
- heck, those wee little buttons themselves can be hard to see
- Odd base on the binding posts makes bare-wire speaker connections tricky (banana plugs are a snap)
- movement of volume control not proportional to increase in sound volume; it works fine... it's just... weird.... kind of
like how a CVT car transmission seems weird after driving a geared transmission for 40+ years

Though it's difficult to describe, the TX-8020 produces a subtly different sound than the Technics unit it replaced: the sound is "rounder" - high frequencies are not quite so "brassy"; inner voices (musical) are more distinct; radio reception has a much "punchier" bass - a bit more than I care for, but that's just me. There is no noticeable (to my ears, at the volume levels at which I listen) distortion. Overall, it's a very nice, easy-to-live-with sound.

One of the other reviewers commented about the amount of turning of the volume control that is needed to increase the sound level. I's true.
