Onkyo's True to Two-Channel

Onkyo showed a nice new set of high-quality, two-channel separates, including the M-5000R Power Amplifier ($2499). This amp puts out 80Wpc into an 8 ohm load but can also deliver dynamic power of 450W into 1 ohm. The products begin shipping this January. It was great to see a mainstream company like Onkyo keeping up a commitment to two-channel music!

Man, that thing is dusty. Are you sure they didn't pull it out of mothballs from the '80s collection?

I guess lots of folks wanted to touch this amp. The problem with using flashes when taking pictures of this gear is that it picks up EVERY single little fleck of dust. As I didn't have time to Photoshop these out, you get the pics here warts and all. It's actually a very nice looking amp FWIW.
