A great value for a stereo receiver!
Less power doesn't have to mean lower quality. The Onkyo TX-8211 is a great stereo receiver for those who don't need all the bells and whistles of a home theater. It's perfect for that small den or bedroom where you relax to read or just listen to music. I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the sound that came from this lower priced unit. <BR><BR>There aren't any fancy features on the TX-8211. But there's nothing cheap about this receiver either. The quality is built into the components. It is well constructed and solidly built. The sound is crisp and clean- and no hum or distortion that I could detect.<BR><BR>I've paid more for other stereo receivers (Pioneer, Sony, Technics, Teac, Sansui, etc.) with much more power and many more features but in my opinion, the TX-8211 out performed them all. I'm sure there are better products out there but expect to pay a lot more for them. The Onkyo TX-8211 is a GREAT VALUE!<BR>
