Onkyo TX-890



Onkyo TX-890

I found this yesterday on our local CL. I was looking for speakers and the guy had an ad for a pair of Fisher speakers with an "old" Onkyo receiver. The add was 2 months old, the photos were bad, but you could tell it was an Integra with the wood panels. The owner said I was the first person to call on it. This was Onkyo's top of the line receiver back in the late 80's. It is in remarkable shape with all of the lettering and feaux wood end panels intact. All it needed was a good cleaning. Everything seems to work and it sounds amazing. I remember seeing one of these at Carston Stereo, the high end stereo place in Danbury CT in the late 80's and thinking to myself that it would be cool to be able to afford something like that some day.
I got it for $40.
