    Setup:
    Network attached storage drive->Onkyo->Zu Soul Standard
    General use is either network function for listening to music, or watching movies, through the RCA inputs.

    Great things:
    The connivence of a network player that doesn't require my computer is extremely useful, it allows me to listen to music even if I have to use my computer in a function which renders music playback impossible.

    I have yet to use the integrated DAC, except through the network function, I assume the sound will be just as good. Once again the convenience of having a DAC allows for much more system flexibility now and in the future.

    I've used both the amplifier and the pre-amp outputs, the volume control allows for clear adjustment and enough useable range even with my 98+dB sensitive speakers. There is the possibility of a second zone, I have yet to try.

    The amplifier is very well constructed there is a large solid aluminum, meaning it isn't bent sheet metal attached to a plate but an actual extruded aluminum heat sink, for the two discrete pairs of output transistors to attach too. There is also a smaller heat sink for the what I'm guessing is class A, judging by the heat, pre-amp stage, also with a pair of discrete transistors. The single large E-I power transformer sits on one side away from the main board. For those that may wish for a toroidal power transformer for this price range an E-I is actually better, you can get more performance for your dollar, namely to actually make a toroidal transformer power transformer better requires significantly higher cost.

    I design/build amplifiers as a hobby and would say that this is a very well made and performing amplifier/receiver. I find it incredibly useful because its flexibility allows me to use it numerous ways, ensuring that I'll continue to use it for years to come.

    As far as sound goes, it performs at a more than acceptable level for what I would expect out of this price range. It provides a very clear sound, and more than enough bass from my speakers. I can not compare this system to anything else, as it was bought to replace a previous home-made system, which was unfinished.

    I bought this Onkyo TX-8050 based on reviews on here and other sites. B&H had the best deal. Well 1.5 years of using this for general music use I'd give it 4 stars. I have some high end speakers that sound great on my other amps/receivers but not much mid range on this Onkyo. Still 4 stars. Where I have issues is the internet streaming of Pandora. I give it 2 stars here. Some of the issues may well be Pandora but the main one is not. It will not let me skip a song. I can not even change the channel. Say I am listening to Moody Blues channel and a ACDC song comes on, I must "MUTE" it till that song is done. My other systems (5 total in my house) that stream Pandora I can skip a song and never hear it again. Another issue is the time it takes to initialize and pick out my channel. I get "BACK" for about 1 minuet. I have done all the firmware updates and still all these issues are there.

    This unit is excellent and has more features than I realized when I bought it. Setup was simple and it is mostly intuitive to use. The menu system requires some getting use to and a call to tech support was useful to decode the menu system. Tech support is fast and accurate. This is the first Onkyo I have owned and I would not hesitate to buy another one. The only thing left for me to learn about is its durability, which will take some time.

      I use this to run my man cave stereo system, as well as for Directv sound through my computer; and Sirius Radio. I have old Bose 501 floor speakers, and the sound is awesome!!The only drawback is that new USB turntables do not work in the phono jacks...has to be hooked through an unused other one; so the phono screen display is useless.

        Comments about Onkyo TX-8050 Network Stereo A/V Receiver:

        Replaced my old NAD receiver with this one. For a basic two channel setup for listening to classical music it works very well. There are plenty of hookups, including one for a phono/turntable, which is rare nowadays. Everything sounds clean and clear on my KEF speakers, plenty of power. FM isn't bad even with included wire hookup. I also like that it has buttons and knobs on the front so that you do not have to use the remote for everything. You can do most anything from the front panel. Basic black with a big volume knob seems a classic look. Just hope it will hold up okay. I'm intrigued with the fact that it can be hooked up to a network and used to stream audio from a PC on the network or from Internet streaming radio stations, but I haven't tried that, so can't verify that it will work.

        I wanted something low cost and with full internet/AirPlay functionality for my office music system. This fits the bill. It really has an incredible number of features for about $, like a phono preamp and a pre amp out and pre amp in. This may be useful in the future, because as others have said, this is not a high powered receiver. I'm driving two Energy RC-10's bookshelfs and its just fine.

I have been listening to the radio as well as I work in my studio.I thought it was glitching out but figured it was my wi-fi not reaching too far.

                Needed to replace an aging Yamaha receiver. Very happy with this "stereo" (as opposed to multi-channel units). Using the usb port most often. Have not tried to connect to the home network yet so no opinion on that. Mostly, it sounds great on my Orb speaker system. More than enough power to shake the room but cleanly.

                  Comments about Onkyo TX-8050 Network Stereo A/V Receiver:

                  The TX-8050 shows itself as a quality product right out of the box. It has a great look. And more imortantly than just being pretty, is that, it provides great sound! It is intutive and feels solid. It can take 2 optical cables; this is the prefered way to connect a CD player. However, the optical cable does not work with zone 2. The 2nd zone can be used for self-powered speakers (they each plug into the wall outlet-they are "monitor speakers"-more on the professional level-B&H sells traditional and self-powered speakers). Additionally, zone 2 does not offer all the displays. I do not consider this a "con", but, in the future, if this (and zone 2 not taking the optical cable) were changed by Onkyo-it would be really great! But, zone 2 can also be used for traditional speakers. Onkyo has 24 hour tech support, and even better, you talk to a tech person in the U.S.A. This is good reason enough to buy Onkyo (think-American jobs). And they do not put you on hold for more than a couple (2 or 3) of minutes if at all. Plus they are friendly and helpful (yes unusual). Onkyo is to be commended for this. I am not an autophile but I know what is good. Most receivers competing with this Onkyo product do not offer the above features. This product is a good value for the price. This is another example of B&H Photo/Video choosing to offer quality products. NYC is so lucky to have B&H Photo & Video. A wonderful and honest retailer.

                      This receiver was recommended by my "geek" friend who knew what I needed for my new HD TV and other components. I also wanted the A/B speaker option so I can hear music and TV when on my screened porch and this fit the bill. I am very happy with it!

                      For a lower priced receiver this receiver performs as advertised. While lacking an equalizer, the treble/bass controls provide a bit of boost toward the top and bottom of the audible frequencies. The sound is crisp and not muddy. The A-B speaker configuration allow two speakers to be placed in the front and two speakers in the rear resulting is a more "surround sound" feeling. I replaced my 1991 Technics with this unit because I still have a tape deck I occasional use and a CD player, phonograph, and large library of CDs. The unit allows me to continue to use this "older" technology. I don't use the VCR. I use the FM stereo very infrequently, but it picks up local stations 30+ miles away OK. The USB connection is great for my iPod. My only complaint is that when I want to use the manual controls on the unit, some of the smaller buttons are hard to see because of the understated black finish. As a result, I use the remote most of the time to adjust the stereo. My room is a bit dark which does not help the problem.I would certainly recommend this stereo to a person who is interested in replacing an older unit and uses the kinds of peripherals mentioned above.

                      Thanks B&H

                      Replaced older TX-8211 for additional inputs and USB. Installed and powered up 1st time but the display didn't appear. Was able to hear CD player output on speakers but no display. Called Onkyo and after 40 min on hold, tech said had been getting reports of loose wire, dead display. Called B&H and described case and Onkyo assessment and there was an almost instant RMA and prepaid shipping label by email. Opted to have new unit shipped when defective was received by B&H. Boxed everything up in original boxes, took to UPS dropoff and in about 3-4 days received email that replacement was being shipped by B&H. Arrived and hooked up the replacement and display worked. Finished setup and ran it through its paces.

                      Like the additional inputs and that they have good labeling. Sound is a little "brighter" than the older TX-8211.

                      Also, the volume control has finer adjustments than before, that's good to get it to that perfect volume. Fits the same space as before and is the "no nonsence" Onkyo equipment that I like. Hooked up Onkyo CD changer, BluRay Player and Cable DVR box all work great and like that I can equalize volume from different sources but haven't set it up yet. Plays iPod through the USB port, plays USB thumb drive too. Think I will activate a seperate guest account in my router with no access to system to stream internet radio but haven't set it up yet.

                      Bought the Onkyo USB WiFi dongle, setup a little challenging with simple display - wish you could use iPod/smart phone to set up network.

                      Would have given max stars except for Onkyo's dead display- had to take one away for that quality control issue.

                        The reason for this rating is when I received the TX-8050 and set it up I noted a static or crakling noise when changing stations as well as other funcitons. It was just prior to Christmas and I did not to take time to call B&H to let them know as I know they we would have me exchanged it.I decided to Call Onkyo support and they were great. they said that they had experince some problems like I had and said that some of the receivers had just quit after this happened. So I got authorization to take the receiver to Grand Rapids Mi. as I live near to have it checked. I will note after the initial problem the receiver has functioned with not problems but I will have it checked out. The receiver produces good sound,plays my older turn table,and the FM sounds good.I have a higher level Onkyo 609 which has preformed well. I have every confidence this will work out.

                          This component seems to cover a lot of possibilities,
                          about half of which I have yet to explore. But my CD player
                          is producing great sounds now, totally reliable. And even my
                          phonograph is playing my vinyl records without the hummmm, for
                          the most part, still have to find how to ground the phono.
                          Only disadvantage at this point is the almost unreadable front panel: but
                          things come up very readably on the front window. All in all, a good buy!

                            I wanted a good receiver that was simple to operate, had good reception, could handle my phono and cd player, with a usb input for my zune or BlackBerry and this unit delivers. It has jacks for two sets of speakers and a subwoofer. It is Internet radio ready but I will probably never use it. It has enough volume for comfortable listening - I don't need to blow out the walls. All in all a great unit at a great price. It took no more than an hour to hook everything up and I was back in business!

                              I use this unit to play Internet Radio out on my back patio. I must say, it is very impressive in terms of form and function.

                              The only issue I experienced was its' inability to recognize my home network, so I had to call Onyko customer support. I had to 'reset' the receiver to factory settings, and it worked perfectly.

                              Now, I can jam all day and night on my patio! For the money, I very much recommend this product...
