About the Onkyo TX-8255
The Onkyo TX-8255 was made for audio enthusiasts who want great stereo sound but don't need all the bells and whistles of a home theater model. It's perfect for that cozy den or bedroom where you can relax and just listen to music. And Onkyo's rock-solid construction and careful attention to detail ensure that your sound stays pure, powerful, and dynamic at all times.
Exceptional build quality
At the heart of the '8255's impressive performance is Onkyo's renowned low-impedance amplifier design. Its oversized, shielded transformer provides maximum power capacity and stability while minimizing hum. An efficient heavy-duty extruded aluminum heat sink ensures cooler operation and longer life from your receiver. Plus the rigid, reinforced chassis and aluminum front panel fight performance-robbing vibration. These thoughtful design touches enable the receiver to drive your speakers with ease, for stellar sound you'll enjoy for years to come.
Versatile, convenient, and iPod® compatible
The '8255 provides plenty of inputs for all of your audio gear. You can connect up to six components, including a turntable. The built-in AM/FM tuner features 40 presets for all your favorite radio stations, plus direct access tuning to quickly jump to a specific frequency. Two sets of main speaker outputs let you connect an additional pair of speakers. Plus, you can add Onkyo's optional control dock to enjoy listening to tunes on your iPod® through your stereo system. You can even use the receiver's handy remote to control your iPod while it's docked.
