Customer Reviews:

  • So Far So Good
    I've had this for a few months now and I feel like it has true quality, especially for the price. It is just a basic, high quality receiver that I believe the majority of people will be completely satisfied with....more info
  • Basic Stereo Receiver
    I was looking for a basic stereo receiver to replace one more than 20 years old. The Onkyo TX-8255 is inexpensive, sounds good, and comes with a "Phone" input, which is disappearing from a lot of stereo equipment....more info
  • Great Receiver
    I purchased this to replace a Sony STRDE197 that had a consistent low intermittent buzz. This receiver produces better quality sound and power, very happy with the purchase....more info
  • Tape Monitor!!!!
    One of the few receivers to have a Tape Monitor button. Only important if you are 'old school' and want to connect your graphic equalizer. I hope this one lasts as long as my Denon. I may not be able to find another receiver with a Tape Monitor button in 2029!...more info

  • GOOD FEEL, GOOD SOUND, GOOD AMP!
    The Onkyo TX-8255 is a great amp for the price. It feels solid, has good basic features including "phono" input for those of us that still own a turntable and it sounds good. Its easy to operate and has a nice remote too. They sell an IPOD dock for this unit but the reviews arent very good. You can hook any IPOD up to any receiver using a basic cable that plugs into your IPOD and then into any stereo input on the receiver, except phono. (Stereo cable: RCA male to 1/8 male pin plug)...more info
  • Excellent!!
    This receiver is excellent. Sounds great driving my Bose speakers I found for 40 dollars at a garage sale!!! I read the reviews for it and they praised it...I add another high rating. ...more info

  • Lack of sub-woofer connection
    The manual lacks any instruction to connect a sub-woofer leaving the customer hapless as to what to do. The unit itself lacks a connecton for a sub-woofer. The result is poor performance....more info
  • looks good, but...
    Onkyo TX-8255 Stereo Receiver

    Well, It looked like a good bet to replace my 25 year old Marantz SR940. I had half the power, but phono input,2 tape I/O's,and several other inputs. looked like a good deal. I gave away the big OLD Marantz and waited....

    When it arrived I quickly hooked things up (the ipod dock was a joke- it got returned immediately). The volume and quality sound were good for such an affordable receiver. My turntable was all set but the phono input fed a lot of silence to the speakers... after reading the manual several times and trying add-on pre-amps I determined the phono circuit was DOA.

    Then I tried my tape decks... both worked as tape 1, but neither would work as tape 2, just more silence.

    After days of banging my head against the wall this will also be returned.

    The 2 main reasons I picked it did NOT work.
