5.0 out of 5 stars The amazing invisible amp. Revisited, October 31, 2008
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Onkyo TX-8255 Stereo Receiver (Discontinued by Manufacturer) (Electronics)
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 heh - both are true. I've only had it two days, so I know nothing of durability. It's driving a couple of IMF speakers which are quite power hungry - no sweat, they just sing beautifully.

Update: Well, it's been over four years and this beast has been terrific. The only way I know it's on is because there is that led display. It gets left on overnight because I forget it's there. Just what I was looking for in an amp.

Three years later and not a bit of trouble. I depend on it like I depend on the room lights. I flip the switch and it works. Excellent equipment and a bargain to boot!

Still going... this thing is bullet proof. I love it, when I remember it's there.
