Onkyo gear from the late '80s era is seriously undervalued. Musical and solidly built. The Selective Tone Control feature is like an adjustable loudness contour. Nice.

The sound is pretty good with all the tone controls in the middle. Has lots of power and a good looking display.

I recently had a chance to leisurely compare three vintage items: the Onkyo TX-82 receiver, a Denon DRA-345 receiver, and an Adcom 5200 power amp, all around 45-50 w/ch; $20-50 locally. The Denon was very clean and had good FM performance. I found it very listenable and comparable to the Adcom, though less dynamic. The Onkyo was warmer, muddy in the midrange, but was capable of high sustained output levels and has decent FM performance. Phono input sounded pretty good through headphones but exhibited the same limitations noted above through Advent speakers. Overall, the Onkyo had too much coloration for critical listening. The Adcom was a cut above the receivers for control of woofer cone motion and presented the most articulate bass plus impeccably clean mids and highs. It's a great little amp, purportedly a Nelson Pass design.
