    Onkyo LS-T10 review

    By 13 December 2013

    One of the emerging trends of 2013 has been the speaker base. They've appeared from all quarters - including Onkyo, here with the LS-T10 - looking to resolve that issue of poor TV sound, but without treading down the full AV receiver and surround sound...

    Onkyo ES-HF300 review

    By 14 May 2013

    Onkyo is a brand that's very much known for being good value. It certainly changed AV receivers, offering a lot more features than most, at bargain prices. What's more, its cheaper receivers have always performed brilliantly, meaning that you don't have...

    Onkyo CR-N755 review

    By 31 January 2013

    For most people the hi-fi is dead. The days of needing two large speakers and a central unit to play music died when we switched to MP3s and AAC audio tracks from the likes of the iTunes store, or Amazon MP3. It wasn't that people didn't want CDs anymore,...

    Onkyo ES-HF300 headphones pictures and hands-on

    By 10 January 2013

    Onkyo has entered into the headphone market with the ES-HF300 and near identical ES-FC300. The only difference between the two is the lack of a premium detachable cable on the FC300, so for the purposes of this hands-on, we will look at them both under...

    Onkyo TX-8050 review

    By 5 December 2012

    Onkyo is a brand more typically associated with AV receivers. Some boast price tags that only the most serious of movie-lovers would consider. But what about those who want a good, standard, stereo amp? The TX-8050 might just be the answer. Build The...

    Onkyo TX-NR818 review

    By 14 November 2012

    Home cinema audio is often neglected, with TVs getting all the attention. The truth is though, that you could spend less on a TV and more on your audio system and have a more enjoyable experience. After all, most of the problem with TV and movies come...

    Onkyo TX-NR609 review

    By 8 September 2011

    On the whole, Onkyo receivers and amplifiers are excellent, especially for the price. Take last year’s TX-NR808 for example, a superb specimen of sonic sorcery – it’s 3D ready, got more bells and whistles than a cat and dog sanctuary, and delivers...

    Onkyo CS-545UK review

    By 8 April 2011

    A media-savvy micro system that includes DAB and an iPhone dock - and all for less than £200 - sounds like any hi-fi wannabe's desktop dream come true. At first glance this diminutive system appears reasonably well specified for the modern age. Sure,...

    Onkyo TX-NR808 review

    By 9 August 2010

    Onkyo is the market leader in AV amplifiers and receivers for good reason. It has, for the last few years at least, crammed its kit with as much tech as it can possibly fit in, whilst keeping prices at very reasonable levels. The end result is a rapidly...

    Onkyo HT-S3305 home theatre system review

    By 23 June 2010

    Expanding your TV beyond the default screen and connected player or console can be a daunting task. Moving over to a one-box home cinema/theatre system is one option, with many of the major manufacturers offering up systems based around a Blu-ray player....

    Onkyo TX-SR576 AV receiver review

    By 17 October 2008

    So you've got a PS3, but you need something to make those Blu-ray movies come to life in sound as well as picture? Onkyo thinks it has the answer with the Onkyo TX-SR576 AV receiver, but does it? Sitting snugly in between the lower budget and the high...
