Bottom Line:   
I was pleasantly surprised that a receiver at this price point (<$200.00) could actually sound as good as it does. Purchased as a refurb from shoponkyo.com, I was hesitant since this was a price point motivated purchase to use as a secondary receiver for bedroom use.
I used Wharfedale Diamond 8.1's for about 6 months and knowing there quality, I wasn't disappointed at how the lil Onk pushed these British Monitors.. Sweeet I thought, listening to "Art Pepper Meets the Rhythym Section" through an onkyo dv-sp300, (also a refurb from shoponkyo.com, $89.00) I went as far as to hook up some beefy Infinity 6Kappa's <4ohm loads and the lil Onk didn't even break a sweat.. It played them relatively loud for such a receiver to handle that difficult load. For the last 9 months, the Onk and a Denon DRA345R have driven a pair of Celestion DL4II's, they are just wonderful sounding speakers..:)
The tuner is good to very good, the remote is decent for this unit, not a lot of inputs.. wish it had a sub out.. but hell, for the price I'm not complaining.. This is a good receiver for about any use... Nice going Onkyo :)
