Wonderfully full and supple the Onkyo M was playing the saxophone to 5000 R (2,500 euros), piano runs came loose, smoothly.

- Data sheet
The power amp impresses M 5000 R already with his generous performance hand instruments, the internal structure for the price range is a hammer. The two enthroned on a steel pedestal, martial and shielded toroidal transformer, as well as the two 27000 micro Farad capacitors on the right and left side already show that every channel to the full can draw.
As a precaution, the Japanese carried out the most important current routes as solid copper bars. And as the driver and four transistors here and there share a massive heat sink, so the previous drivers got their own aluminum wings and therefore thermal independence.
That indicates difficulties, which does not conceal the fact of Onkyo. To come out with as little as possible – in their opinion-sound absorbing – over all feedback, the engineers not as usual conditioning to levels the emitter, but the collectors themselves. Thus, they achieved a better level of distortion without the disputed correction. However, such orders to swing, which is why each working point under all circumstances in a given frame must remain tend.
Could be no question of restrictions or ailments in the listening test, however. On the contrary, where other amplifiers around the already vergrämt turn the key, the Onkyo opened the way to infinite bass havens. In them, about Mark Egan (on the CD “Truth Be Told”) was allowed to bold plunge in depth, take fast curves, to roll over without that lacked somewhere in the slightest of clamping force and expression.
Wonderfully full and supple the M was playing the saxophone to 5000 R, piano runs came loose, smoothly. A little on the brake, the amp only joined Omnis percussion or classical violin harmonic brilliance.
With increased bite and rigor attempted the comparison-proven exposure XXXVIII (test 6/04, 52 points), to mend the Onkyo on the apron. After the British knausrigeren bass amp drew the short straw, he drained from trying again.
