I currently own 2 of these integrated amps. I find these to be excellent. The build is of high quality. I find the sound to be exceptional in clarity and warmth. I typically run them flat bypassing the tone controls, but the tone controls when in use add no noise that I can detect anyway. The power is ample when I run them through the speakers I currently have connected (Speakerlab 30's and Dahlquist's of varying models).
Speakerlab 30's are capable of handling a lot more watts than the Onkyo can generate as they are not very efficient. However, the Onkyo A-8700 is capable of pushing them louder than I care to push them, and louder than I ever have. I cannot hear distortion, if there is any, at high listening volume. I have owned my first A-8700 since around 1989, and it still looks, sounds, performs like it did the first day I hooked it up. I have never had a need for any repair what-so-ever, ignoring lamp bulb burn-out. I have not even replaced the bulbs, but am thinking of replacing them with LEDs. I purchased my second A-8700 on eBay.com several years ago as it was nearly perfect in its original box and bidding was so low. When I received it, I didn't have an immediate need for it (I seem to accumulate audio gear...go figure...) I set it up in my son's room. It has been as rock solid as my first A-8700 and still has working bulbs.
My typical modes of input are my TV, and DVD/CD players, AM-FM tuner (also Onkyo, but cannot recall the model number). I do not have a Phonograph, currently.
I listen to Jazz, Rock, and Classical music and as a lifetime musician have a pretty discriminating ear. My son enjoys the same music and tends to occasionally stretch out his woofers with rhythmically heavier genre.
The Onkyo A-8700 amplifier is a simple workhorse, built to last, and to please. It is a powerful integrated stereo amp that handles a lot for a basic feature, high fidelity unit. For me...what's not to like?!?

Ho l'8700 dal 1992 ottimo sotto tutti i punti di vista sia nel suono che nella potenza ha come limite la sua catena di assistenza in italia.
Infatti dopo 20 anni , quando ha avuto bisogno di manutenzione é iniziato il calvario e a tutt'oggi l'ampli nn funziona piu bene....

re: A-8700

The Onkyo integra A-8700 is a really good amp! But after 20 years of use it needs maintanance. Has anybody got some experience with that?

Regards in advance,

re: A-8700

I also have an Onkyo Integra A-8700 but I bought it only two months ago. I am sorry that I cannot help with maintenance with yours, but I am very impressed how well this unit sounds. I like it even better than my Luxman amplifier.
